  15. Morning, Another one of my way too many examples of British pin-levers, this time in the form of a seldom-seen Guildhall from the (presumably) short-lived Guildhall Watch & Clock Co Ltd, based at 58 Houndsditch, London. Dating from the 1950s and all too obviously made for them by the original Newmark outfit in Croydon, as well as running on the agricultural 0j Newmark 13’’’ calibre. I see that there were some posts 10 years ago from a few Guildhall-owning members, the only one of whom I can detect as still "active" being our esteemed @mach 0.0013137, who may or may not be conside

  18. Another French offering today, a Lebem pointer date, with manually adjustable bezel for day of the week. Which I, erm, don't usually adjust ... and I can't see the date either. It's in French anyway, so no-one would notice. And fingers crossed another 'French' watch - actually a Bulova with a day-of-the-week pointer en Francais - will be here to keep his Gallic chums company this time tomorrow. Sois sage. & HAGD

  27. Still this clunker. Looking forward to something older lighter and more interesting. This is a sort of ok modern daily beater. What all watches should honestly beable to achive for 200 quid. Sarb 33 Incredibly exciting what hides in ones drawers. Especially of the bed in the dead on night.

  28. Let me get this straight. I have nothing against Rolex (or Omega, or Seiko), I just see them for what they are -- robust pieces of machinery, industrially made in very large quantities. Clearly, there is a trade off between ruggedness and being made down to a cost, which is generally balanced well. There is a reason why I always wear my DJ for skiing, shooting and motor sport -- and it's the same reason why, when we holiday in the Kruger Park, I always rent a Hilux. There is also a reason why I don't drive a Hilux in the UK, and why I rarely wear the DJ for activities unlike

  29. That's spooky, I was thinking the same thing about my Neff fridge this morning which exhibits identical symptoms. Mine's lasted 35+ years though. Watch this space for buying a new fridge, oven, sink... and then there's the bathroom... and a new boiler... and... oh well, you get the picture.

  30. I am pleased to report the acquisition of three watches for my birthday a couple of days ago. They all came from ebay and had all been worn once and put back in the box. They are as new so seems like an accurate description. First up is a Camden Watch Company no 29. The design is based on a Victorian pocket watch. The dial has a recessed middle section which really enhances its look. The silver hands are nice but a bit tricky to spot in low light with not a drop of lume to be seen. The strap is signed, as is the buckle and crown. Wears big at 43mm with a very thin bezel. No WR rating on t

  37. 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.

  38. Benzinger research is getting more interesting. Turns out that Jochen Benzinger is one of the German industry's premier engravers. He works with major brands, and also with smaller ones like AEther, as well as crafting a few of his own. The example I show above is his work for AEther, on a watch costing around €3500. What he does to the 6498 (same movement as @JoT's Waltham) when working to his own account looks like this . . . . Will power might be fading

  39. Hello to all I hope I am not being forward but wanted to introduce myself as some new members seem to. I am a new member located i the UK and have enjoyed skimming through this forum!! I am very new to watches and collecting - in fact watch collectng is likely to be slow and careful until I feel confident about some of the obvious pitfalls! I have already learnt quite a bit from browsing around this wonderful forum for the last couple of weeks - although I do get extremely sidetracked by the photos of some of the quality watches I see on here! I have never collected wa
