  2. You've probably all seen this one on here before, but have you ever seen one in real life? Fairly scarce, I would say. This is a Seiko 7T92-0JG0, commonly referred to as a Seiko 'Caesar'. They were originally available in the yellow as here, and a black dialled version. Seiko also made a kinetic version of this watch. The nickname Caesar comes from the fanciful resemblance to a Roman crown when viewed sideways on. It's quite a big watch, 46mm in diameter and features a screw down crown and chrono pushers. It has a fabulously well made bracelet, (if you can find one) ...most came on rubber.

  6. Small but otherwise thoroughly modern - late 30's hand-winding derivative of Harwood's bumper, pre-dates the Fortis Fortissimo but is likewise touted as waterproof (Gallet clam-shell case) and a lovely beater. Stainless steel Audax Fortissimo

  17. Seiko samurai today. Still hunting for another bracelet for this. Just having a bit of respite from the pup. Worn her out this morning and now she's drifted off, but she will be back! Full time job at the moment with this one.

  22. "ServiceS" INDIAN & CONTINENTAL (Hall-marked sterling silver cases, 15 Jeweled Swiss Lever movements) circa mid/late 1930s Today these could be considered to be ladies size but as you can see in the exert from a Services Catalogue circa 1937, they were listed as "Watches for men"...

  23. My 10 year old grandson's CWC G10 - swapped it yesterday for mine so I can get this one fixed up again. It gives me great pleasure to see how he enjoys this watch, it is constantly on his wrist hence the bangs and scrapes resulting in the cracked crystal!

  24. Oh wow!! Some beauties today! Sorry but my todays wear can't match up the what's already been posted as the GP is worn through, The crystal has numerous cracks and it needs a new chrono button!, I love tpo strap it on occasionally though!! Manual wound Valjoux 7734 powered, I think it will need some attention soon Amazingly it keeps excellent time!! Hope everyone had a great weekend John

  27. Leijona AS1130. I can't settle on a date for these "Lion" brand watches, but the movement is 1950s according to Ranfft. So that would be Camille Barre of Bessaucourt, supplying OY Perkko, a retail jeweller in Helsinki that still owns the brand.

  33. I've gone from being a quartz-only sports/tough watch enthusiast to a mechanical dress watch obsessionist. Quite a change, I'm sure you'll agree. I think it started when I decided I needed something 'classy' for those special occasions. Now I wear my dress watches all the time, every day. As I'm writing this I'm in camo shorts and an old grey T, but with a dress watch on my wrist nevertheless! Have any of you guys been through a similar metamorphosis, albeit maybe with different watch styles? Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

  34. I used to like similar, leather strap dainty looking dress watches with Roman numerals, now im more a divers style person, my current baby is an Oris Aquis on the rubber strap, i love the look.

  35. Shop, i like to see what im buying in the flesh, its not just watches either, many things look a lot different when you see them online and in books and magazines, if im paying what i consider good money for something, i want to actually look at the item first hand.

  36. The disruptive technology of cell phones and smart watches means that the lower and mid-range watch market is saturated so the mid-level companies are going to get smaller or even disappear. What about the higher-end? With the exception of Rolex most brands are publically listed, directly or indirectly, so are on the hamster wheel with shareholders demanding growth. Growing the numbers of watches is difficult as can be seen in the FH statistics. Since the year 2000 Swiss watches in the sub CHF200 category have halved in numbers to 11 million, mid-tier watches between of CHF200 to CHF3000

  38. @Roger the Dodger for only banning @mach 0.0013137 without pointing out that @JoT should have been banned for banning the wrong person but you have said nice things about his girlfriend so maybe that could be an excuse (pretty poor one though).

  39. There are always those who just can`t cope with innovators. John, being a staunch Conservative, I`d have thought you would have been totally anti left Actually, being a Conservative is definitely a most excellent reason for being banned

  41. The problem with £1000+ watch RRPs ... is that they are nothing to do with supply and demand. They are arbitrary. In times such as these, arbitrary pricing gets called out. My advice is keep your power dry. Late 2020 will be a buyers market. Specifically in the UK, when the flexible furlough finishes in October then many Watch Retailers will have big decisions to make and they will need cash. They will most probably work out that the next quarter could be beneficial to be a net zero profit quarter... I suspect many people who dig deep enough may be able to get luxury watches in the last quarte
