  11. It's Bullhead day! Always cheers me up to see this gleaming at me from the watch box. I think the bezel is brutally honest, since to be honest I never use it, though it makes a nice clicking noise when you turn it. And the black lume is quite cool too. HAGD

  13. Sorry...for a minute I thought you said bull$h1t day... My old faithfull DW 6630B from 1999. This was my daily beater for 14 years in the landscaping business, and when I retired it in 2013, it looked like this... I decided to to reward it for its hard work and as my constant companion for all those years, so last year fitted it with a new bezel. I think it's happy now!...

  25. Well, Yesterday actually!! It's modded in to a fifty Five Fathoms, I think the dial is a Yobokies product, The base is SNZH57, I was blown away by the condition of the watch as the pics were out of focus and grainy, In truth there isn't a mark on the steel and only one small ding on the bezel! It came with a bracelet, Two Nato's and the original dial!! John

  27. Must be mad but bought a new Tudor North Flag, currently available at some Watches of Switzerland group shops at a reduced price. Suspect they are being discontinued in the near future. https://photos.app.goo.gl/eaE2MZaMP27wMvTs9

  28. Ferkin agony, however it is being fortified by red wine and bloody mindedness.. The original part (to the left in white) is 1756, the bit I live in, (the stone bit directly behind) was a 2 bedroom extension built in (approx) 1850. There is tons of local history attached, one of the previous owners was a personal friend of George Washington, all to do with tobacco and the cessation, unfortunately I can't remember all the details No, I dug the holes out to 300mm deep 150-200mm wide, then a wee spot of postcrete underneath, then postcrete up to ground level. I did put in more posts than recommended but better safe than sorry. Swinging those bags of postcrete around is seriously painful, 11 bags of the stuff -so far! We still have a wee bit of turf to dig out as I want all of the support rails to be clear of the earth - bugger!

  30. Just ordered myself one as I've looked over and over but never thought much of the price. They are on sale at the moment meaning a sapphire model for ~£130! https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000799790387.html?spm=a2g0o.placeorder.0.0.43bd321e8pV3c4&mp=1 Time to forget all about it until the postie knocks in a month or two.

  31. The little dial is the second movement, the hole on it forms Sputnik, note its tails, with the part number underneath. The numbers denote seconds not date. The dial rotates, replaces a standard second hand, revealing the numbers as it moves and does nt stay still

  32. Possibly, there are traces of what could be radium on the hands and dial. I have no intention of taking this apart myself.

  33. The name was registered to Alstater Watch Corp, New York, USA, in various guises since 1928. Believe the company ceased trading in the 1970’s, resurrected as Alster Watch Company in 2014. Nice dial, would suggest your model is from 1950’s - early 60’s.

  41. Smashing, Nice catch! I once bought around a hundred watches off fleabay for a tenner posted!, 98 of them were cheap Qtz but in among them was a Cyma Navystar with sub seconds that wound and kept good time, There was also a working Sekonda mechanical watch, Don't recall which one it was as i've quite a few of them!

  42. I realize that this article was already long when I posted it yesterday, and on a subject that many readers and members of a watch forum are probably not particularly interested in. However, I decided to improve the article and make it a more substantial piece of work, partly for my own satisfaction and partly because the article will be openly available to interested readers searching for the subject on Google. So here above is the revised and enlarged topic. I have re-titled the article and completely re-edited it in order to make it more authoritative; I have also added more illustrations. I do hope that at least some of our Forum members will enjoy the revamped article - writing it was a labour of love.
