    L.L.D. for me on this wet Sunday. When I bought it, i bought, a couple of weeks later, the mesh bracelet its now on. I did buy an Uncle Seiko beads of rice bracelet for it ..........(specially made to "fit" the L.L.D.)...........I thought it looked ,OK on the uncle seiko bracelet...but I didnt wear it much after that......I then put it back on the mesh bracelet.....now Im wearing it more again!..I think it was because, to me at least, the Uncle Seiko bracelet, felt "cheap and rattly/tinny?!"

    Grandad's Garrard PW. He was presented with this watch for faithful service in 1954, by which time the watch was already over 100 years old, being dated 1845-1846 (Capital Old English K) from the hallmarks on the 18ct case. It is key wound and set.

    Hi all About fifteen years ago when I owned a National Electric watch cleaner, I stripped and cleaned this Glycine then reassembled lubricating as I went along, The watch wouldn't go when i'd finished so it was put in a drawer, There was no power to the balance whatsoever!, I just found it with a few more oldies, Without thinking I gave it a slight tap on the desk and blow me- It's started running strongly!! I have a feeling it will stop at some stage though!!, I think a bit of crud may have been trapped that was overlooked as I just put it back together withough inspecting the parts for cleanliness!! It's been running and keeping time for over three hours now though!!, It has an ST964 ebauche within, Found it on Rolands site, I couldn't make out the first digit and thought it was a 3, Ranftts site put me wise though!! The watch is quite an ugly old thing, The GP is worn through and it doesn't have a second hand, It has a shaft for one but it was missing when I acquired the watch!, May have to got through my old parts watches!! A couple of the others that seem to be running fine too! This is a Chateau and is powered by an ETA2783 which runs at 21,600 bph although it has damage to the dioal so the crystal was most likely broken at some point, I can't even recall buying this!! The 'Limit of Switzerland' has a damaged dial, I think the crystal must have broken for this damage to happen!, Like the Glycine it has a manual wind ST964, The second hand again, Is missing!! A few more that are running well, Didn't remove the caseback on these though! I also found this Cimier cheapo that won't start up, Couldn't be bothered to open it up but it has a nice Kiefer Xpandro sprung bracelet attached, Had to remove it and scrub the inside with fairy washing liquid and toothbrush as it was full of crud when I pulled it! I feel a deeper delve in to various drawers and boxes coming on!! John

    This arrived this morning from The Ukraine, (Luch 3055 electronic) needed a bit of TLC, day/date changed at 6 instead of 12 and it was running SERIOUSLY slow (in excess of -900secs/day!) A quick strip down and repositioning of the hands solved the first problem and a session on the Timegrapher has greatly improved the second one, now running at about-10/15 secs/day but will wear it for a few hours and see if it settles down....

    Nice pair of Giugiaros, Cassie! (I know you have an orange one as well) Yours look like the later 7T62s...I had the 'Burnt Sienna' orange one, but it was a 7T32 with 3 pushers and two crowns...

    Yuri Gagarin was a splendid chap by all accounts - a capable engineer and scientist, pilot and cosmonaut, brave and strong, and, most importantly, a watch fan! He had more watches than my mum, who seems to have an inexhaustible supply needing new batteries. Zim 'chapaev' - 1950's It's shiny HAGD!

    Morning, Bombay calling! (with apologies to the quite wonderful It’s a Beautiful Day). Every once in a while I look at this shocker, trying to find some justification for my newbie self ever having bought it. I never do. So, 35mm of stainless steel housing a shabby 21j 7019A, a Seiko-signed bracelet clasp and a dial in a rather fetching (or retching) shade of bilious green imaginatively teamed with a sweep seconds in purple. The movement bears the letters SIN, possibly an Import Code, but certainly an indisputable fact. I still remember the day years ago when I took my new arrival for a service. It was the day when I discovered that my normally grumpy watchmaker was actually capable of genuine laughter, the sounds of mirth ringing in my ears long after I had left clutching my “treasure” still un-serviced, as it remains to this day. Regards.

    WOWSER!!! Some fab watches today!! I'm afraid I can't have new spotless stuff as i'm a clumsy sod and always fear the inevitable!! I much prefer beat up old bangers as someone else has already applied the wabi!! I found this old 6309 divers languishing in a drawer, The hand setting doesn't work but when I picked it up it was only a couple of mins from being the correct time so I waited then started shaking it!! The day and date don't work either but I don't use it as I struggle to see them!! John
