  12. Allenby watch that I think was made under licence by Allaine Watch SA with an EB 8021 still resolutely ticking away. On a ZRC adjustable expanding bracelet, which it probably doesn't deserve. To pay for 23 mostly decorative jewels, they had to cut down on everything else.

  15. Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the Ice Man @Iceblue for sending me this lovely Swiss Legend watch, absolutely free, gratis, and for nothing: I've used an existing old photo, because I had already owned this one previously I gave it away in a prize draw a while ago, and I happened to mention it recently. The Ice Man noticed my comment, and kindly returned it to me I'm wearing it today, and it's just as awesome as I remember it to be. Timekeeping is particularly accurate on this one, and it's a solid and well made piece of kit that sits nicely on the wrist. It's got a scr

  16. Having professed here my absolute dedication to dress watches of late, here's a diver that's got a bit about it imho [emoji846] The Seiko Black Series solar 3-hander, of course. On a black Nato rather than the stock rubber. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

  17. Morning, 1960s AXES, a brand attributed to Dimier SA. This one runs on a 17j Unitas 6311 and whilst there are a few chronos kicking about, time-only examples are seemingly rather uncommon. Regards.

  21. How about something like a Certina DS Podium C001.007.11.113.00? It's an automatic, has an MoP dial for a bit of bling. RRP £585, so in ballpark with discount.

  23. Yes but not for overpriced horological baubles. We ended up doing some clothes shopping after better half had haircut and colour and account draining. Finally we stocked up the fridge and freezer from the Buffalo Farm. Will be around Leith tomorrow so might see what we see if any jewelers are open. Word to the wise , when dealing with your better half don't be a smart arse and say " ... that's not expensive look at this ! " "Oooooo, that's lovely !" she said.

  25. I have heard it said many times that a Seiko Marinemaster SBDX001 is as good as a Rolex Submariner / Sea Dweller I own both and am in no doubt that the Rolex is the superior watch even though the Marinemaster is in itself damn good watch being higher up the Seiko foodchain. Most Seiko's are good value for money but that doesn't necessarily make them great quality. They are also watches I enjoy owning, I have three at present; SBDX001, 6139-6002 and a 7548-700B and have owned many more at various times.

  26. I'm with @spinynorman. Evolution rather than quantum leap. I used to think that quartz was the future, but then mobile phones came along and I gradually changed my view of what a watch is for. At one time I thought of Rolex as the acme of watch making -- but learning and experience gradually enlightens. I used to think that complications were cool, but I slowly realized that the only one I ever use is the date, and the only one which is likely to enhance the look of a watch is a moon-phase. And, I'm sure I'm not finished. Life is a journey of discovery, but brings very fe

  27. I want to know what I’m buying is legit so mainly authorised dealers...but I shop around/ look out for sales. (Beaver brooks, WOS, Fraser Hart, Chisholm Hunter I recommend) I’m a cheeky sod so never pay retail.....if you have the balls to ask for a discount you can often get watches brand new from an AD for the same price that private sellers ask for on fleebay/ Chrono 24. The only other place is my local jewellers who has some great pre owned deals on watches and is always willing to haggle. I go there because he doesn’t sell junk. All his watches have been fully serviced and lo

  28. This is the correct answer. Several years ago, when Sheila hit the big '00', I told her I would buy her a prestige watch to mark the occasion. I showed her round several high end shops, focusing on Rolex, Omega, JLC etc. After about 3 hours, and lunch, (you know how long our lovely ladies take...), ....she said she wanted to go to the Swarovski shop....where she chose a very sparkly sub £100 watch that she liked. Who was I to argue? Saved me a fortune, and she absolutely loves it.. If she's happy, I'm happy, and that's what it's all about. Edit: Sorry, forgot about the 'not quartz' t

  29. I wouldn’t take much heed on the car advice, equally with Covid people won’t want to be buying big ticket items so as a buyer you have the power as they have the stock. To be fair it’s that age old buyer/seller mentality we have all been there, I know I have when I am selling it’s all the market is strong, blah blah blah and when I’m buying it’s all well I’m here now ready to buy, not many people out there buying blah blah blah. its going to swings and roundabouts, and the overall market will dictate demand and supply, I think we all have our fingers crossed as you will be with

  30. Following a heads up on an Amazon offer, picked up one of these for DC a while back (£115 ?)... 36mm SS case, ETA 2824-2 movement... If it wasn't for the sparkly stones I would wear it.

  31. There are so many factors involved in the value of an item and how its price is defined. It is not like Breitling just produce a watch that costs them pennies and decides lets throw a large number on it. For all their faults Brietling is a thorough tester of its watches, they are tested at 8g in multiple positions, the finishing and quality control is pretty good etc, it all adds to the number they put on their watch at the end. Some watch manufacturers are doing a heap by hand, that can make the watch expensive in a way that cannot be seen, a man working needs to be paid but the prod

  33. I'm not that bothered...more to life than worrying if a watch is out by a second a day...'About then' is fine by me. A regulator watch would suit me fine...roughly tells the time to the nearest 5 minutes. But to be quite honest, since I retired, time has no meaning anymore. It's like being on holiday....get up when it's light, go to bed when it's dark. If it's sunny, sit out in the garden, if it's raining, read a book. Watches don't even come into the equation. Simple, really....and much more satisfying.

  34. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin formed the American crew that landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. 51 years ago today. Command module pilot Michael Collins flew the Command Module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface.

  35. I'm actually going the other way! After a lifetime working in manual labour, my wrists are stupidly big...8" plus. Tiny watches...46mm or less look like a child's watch on my wrist. My Rolex GMT looks silly on my wrist, which is why I don't wear it very often these days. Nowadays, I seek out the 50mm + sizes....

  36. I think my quantum leap is mainly size related. what’s the saying? The bigger the better? ...I’m firmly along the lines of good things come in small packages these days. The thinner the better, the smaller the better. I’ve only got 1 watch larger than 40mm and looking at a 36-38mm piece next

  37. 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
