  3. After spending most of the day in waders, grovelling in the pond to try to fix the fountain*, I now have a watch on again. Back to one of my absolute favourites. I bought this used from *an unmentionable other forum* in not quite perfect condition. Having the opportunity, I gave it to Dirk Dornblüth whilst he was in London (against a receipt scribbled on a business card). Six weeks later, I got it back via DPD in perfect condition. No charge . Some people are just too nice. It now counts as one of two watches I own where I really cannot believe what a wonderful piece I got for what I

  5. Wearing these two metal squares today; the V on the left has an aged IP finish and is twice the price of the normal black IP model on the right. Many people try to mimic this aged IP finish on their metal squares but the consistency of the finish doesn’t come close. This is what made the V appeal to me. Having random scratches looks tatty but having a consistent distressed finish looks pretty awesome up close.

  7. Morning, Today, a 1950s relic of the Jewel Wars, this Mount Royal running on a Felsa 4002 pimped to 80 jewels, probably 25 of which are broadly functional and 55 which, er, aren’t. The most likely maker of this curiosity would have been the original Choisi company of Geneva (Est. 1928) long before its demise and later reactivation in 2013 by some business interests based in Singapore. I’ve never seen another one and sometimes wonder how many survive today or, indeed, were ever made. Regards.

  11. Nice to see you are back Mike. I am too. Any way...ive been wearing this flat out since getting it in Feb. 2017 SARB033. 6R15D. Born in Japan and pretty good for a 200 quid watch. Not had much else in the past few months but a vostok amphibia that was bought as a bet and went to @scottswatches. So thats another bet lost...A citizen cosmotron from 72 with the 36000bph. A bunch of old seikos. Oh and ive a 76 king quartz sat in Tokyo with a platinum dial. Regarding the Sarb033. I had to have it regulated and ive not missed a bus since. @BondandBigM.

  15. Latest incoming Casio Edifice getting a bit of wrist time today, and probably the rest of the week as well: It arrived on Monday, but I've only just got round to adjusting the bracelet to fit. Two links out, and it sits perfectly. Another stunning looking Edifice, and I love it

This is my other shoe. Ive even had to sell the maserati and get a bike then this happens. Ive even had to sell the maserati and get a bike then this happens.

  29. Stepson and family decided they wanted artifical turf in their back garden and was going to do it all himself so my wife (Ruth) and I offered our services , granted I can not do everything being in a wheelchair but I can shovel hardcore and sand etc . Monday he removed the turf himself and yesterday me and Ruth filled a skip full of the removed turf amongst other jobs . Today we all shifted 2 ton of hardcore and 1 ton of sharp sand ( not sharp sand exactly but then not sure exactly what it was ) Before and after photos Ruth giving the whacker a try Fina

  31. I have a number of microbrand watches. I just think they offer exceptional value for money, and either have great original designs or, if you pick correctly, a high quality homage. The watch that got me bitten was the Precista PRS-20 which is a homage to the Panerai Radiomir. I was actually looking at a Panerai at the time, which I think was about £3.5k and the Precista was about a tenth of that. I ummed and erred for a period of time and decided to give the Precista a go first on the basis that if I felt it was a cheap knock-off I could then sell it and buy the real thing. However, it isn’

  32. I've recently bought one of these and, whilst I don't have much to compare it to, I'm really impressed with he quality. I have 7" wrist and I think it's a perfect fit for me. Oops! Thats not he image I meant to attach - I need to work out how to do that!

  33. I've got a few, although I'm not really sure microbrand is applicable to all. I even have a watch that I have never heard of - lol! The above 2 brass watches back to back. You can see that the Boldr cheap and nasty nato was soon disposed of. The replacement came from Boldr as well: The above final two watches will be offered up as forum fundraisers - when Thailand's post service allows me to use airmail to the UK!

  34. As a dealer via chrono24 trusted checkout means I don't get paid until the customer is happy. I have never needed to raise any issues (or had issue raised against me), but if the dealer has good feedback (collected by Chrono24, quite independently) it is rare hear about problems via their platform. The also demanded tax information before I joined as a dealer, just to double check I was legit. I was quite impressed. To the OP. If at all unsure, walk away

  35. No Idea, had it for under a week and send it off to D Hodge to see if he could make the bezel "clicky", i just couldn't live with it. He cant make it ratcheted so it may be appearing in the FS section when i get it back, apart from the bezel im happy with it for the money; looks brilliant but the bezel is a biggy for me.

  37. How's the timekeeping on yours ? Mine is as close to bang on as anything I've had. Currently around +1s /48 hours. Which is great compared to the "near enough" regulation on any Seiko I own. Bezel is a joke, as was the perlon strap that mine came with. Otherwise I'm happy with it.

  42. Very much a fan of the microbrand & I've owned many examples over the years including: Helson, Halios, Armida, Artego, Borealis, Maranez, Prometheus, Benarus, Dagaz, Geckota, Gigandet (are they a microbrand), Military Industries, TC9, MCWW (still have this - only about 7 made - but it's broken), Ocean 7, Japy x 2 (yellow dial Terrestre (quartz) & a beautiful blue dial Aquatique (auto)). I didn't own all these at the same time & I was a serial seller/trader so what might have been a favourite one month was quite likely to be sold/traded the next month. I like to think I've sett

  43. On the more pricey side post kick starter but excellent customer service, good lume, sapphire and a tough scratch proof coating on the case and bracelet. Well executed, but no doubt some will say its a little bland. And a Miyota 9039. My only compliant is the rotor spin, but its minor and only sometimes that its noticeable.

  44. My few... Spinnaker Hull Cali. Love the dial texture and colour, not so keen on the caseback, but you don’t look at that Dan Henry ‘1970’. I don’t wear this as much as I should, and no idea why!? The only thing I’d change is the winding crown, which despite appearances is hard to grip. On the other hand, the internal bezel crown is exactly the same which makes it more secure against accidentally moving it. My favourite of my ‘micros’ - Armida A1 in brass. Nothing negative to say. Close run second favourite - Phoibos Proteus. The Armida is a
