  13. Morning, This Basamatic today, made by Adolf Thommen’s Basis Watch Co of Tecknau, Switzerland founded in 1938. Their Basamatic brand was first registered in 1957 and this one wouldn’t have been produced too long after that. Whilst Basis were widely known for using low-jewel pin lever movements sourced from various manufacturers such as Baumgartner, today's effort runs on an uncommon 21j Brac 117 auto (but only 20j in this case, as you can see) a calibre not represented in the Ranfft or Lorenz archives. Regards.

  22. Asking a watch forum whether you should buy a watch, or not (yet) buy, a watch is an exercise in futility. Of course you should buy -- and we want to see the unboxing photos tomorrow (at the latest). Drive a good hard bargain though. Put your credit card on the table and name your (silly, but not completely ridiculous) price. The worst that can happen is that you leave without a watch. But you'd be amazed how mesmeric the sight of a little piece of plastic can be for some ADs. Good luck

  25. Now THAT ^ is a beauty To me, a ceramic Rado doesn't look like a 2 grand watch, and even if you can get it at £995 I still don't think it looks worth the money. Obviously my opinion is purely based on looks, and I have no personal experience of them. Only you can decide if it offers "value for money"

  27. I'm with @andyclient on this. During lockdown I started wearing watches less, even outside the house.

  28. I was thinking, when posting, knowing your engineering background, 'bet the Sultan will know what this is used for' I had a strong suspicion as to what this was & it's purpose, when first viewing it, as a colleague has a G.E.C. Coventry made one. Similar to this one... His father worked with his example at G.E.C. when testing electrical contacts on Spitfire assembly during WW11. An interesting (fully functioning) bauble with box & papers, for a few pounds. As you say, "every day is a school day"....for me too!

  33. Have a slightly different take on this. Unless up to my eyes in brambles or pond construction, I tend to see every day as an opportunity to wear a nice watch -- don't have to be with anyone else; just enjoy them for me.

  34. Exactly this as per andyclient above (although recently retired) for me at the moment with covid, I am not selling yet (its good I don't need to either) as hoping next year will be better for travel and life in general when opportunities to wear watches will be greater deano

  38. Aghhh that would drive me nuts!!!!!! I think I have a problem. If something doesn’t get used within 6 months it goes in a box, if it doesn’t get used in 12 months that box goes in the bin! thank god I at least get some action on my birthday!

  39. I must admit that during all the COVID crisis both the wife and I haven’t really bothered wearing watches , she because she can’t, working in the nhs and me as I can’t really be bothered ( no need retired) and consequently not really going out much so seems pointless. Bit of a shame really but does make you reevaluate things mayBe?
