  5. Morning, Today this steel-cased Moeris, a brand founded in 1901 by Fritz Moeri. This 21j auto version probably dates from the late 1940s, runs on an early incarnation of Felsa’s Bidynator, the Cal. 690 and is another example of mismatched jewel counts between dial and movement. Regards.

  10. I am waiting for a watch that's currently in the post (on the back of a Spanish donkey if the estimated deliver date is anything to go by) and I went out today and bought another. Its a bit of a strange one really, I know its not a saleable watch. IWC is a respected brand but hardly flies off the shelf. And for the price of it the seller had a nice 18ct Vacheron or a JLC triple date which I would be the first to say are more appealing... Its no wonder this watch has been in their inventory a while. It is however a very rare watch, made in platinum for the Japanese Market

  19. I also have a watch with a mismatch, and like your's it's lower on the dial than the movement (substantially so). 17 versus 25. I have always assumed something a bit dodgy went on

  20. I don’t really think it’s a case of dodgy ‘r’ us. Occasionally a maker would find they didn’t have enough of the appropriate dials to match the jewel count on the movement and, from memory, my examples of mismatches all have the lower jewel count on the dial which is first thing any prospective buyer would see, rather than the other way round which could be deemed to be misleading. However, in the case of today’s effort, it’s possible that the oscillating weight has been replaced at some stage but I’ve never needed to tear this one down to count the jewels. Regards.

  22. Doxa say they chose Orange because it gave the clearest contrast. However, I’ve read many a comments from other people disputing this - saying that Red disappears first - so Orange would shortly after. However, I’ve just come accords this video what suggests that Doxa knew what they were talking about after all. http:// Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  23. Not sure Breil would be classed as a fashion brand mate. According to their Wikipedia page "Breil is an Italian luxury company of Binda Group. Its products include watches, jewels, eyewear, fragrances, and leather accessories" I think fashion brands are better known for their clothing, in the case of Fat Face it would be casual wear like tee shirts and sweat shirts. That's my understanding anyway. If I didn't know better I'd say you were being sarcastic there mate. However, I will brace myself for the inevitable bidding war, and probably upgrade the Porsche to a newer model

  24. Snap Although i put mine on a strap, I struggle to get a good fit with no micro adjustments on the bracelet, got it from Ali in a sale a while back, surprised (although shouldn't be) how good it looks and quality considering the price.

  25. My Dad was in 3 Commando during the war. At one time he was 'attached' to SOE. He was running agents across to Norway. For this period his service record is blank. An amusing anecdote - His brother in law was a POW in japan so he borrowed his new motorbike. When he did the Norway trips he loaded it on to the fishing boat and used it for transport over there. On one trip whilst on the return he stopped off to sleep in a barn. He woke to the sound of the enemy approaching and had to make a quick exit - without the bike! Of course it was never recovered and he was never forgiven by my u

  26. One from the Fat Face collection today: A bit of a TW Steel looky-likey this one, and that's a good enough reason for it to be a keeper Thinking about slimming down the collection a bit soon, and flipping some of the ones that are not getting any wrist time. I'll probably put them on ebay and not the sales corner though, as I doubt there will be much interest for... *gasp*... any f*shion watches on here...

  27. Very true, one of my favourite watches, it's one of those watches where you need to see it in the flesh to really appreciate it, it's really hard to get a picture that does it justice. Wish I had bought the IP black one as well, the more I see pics of it the better looking it gets each time. Maybe keep an eye on ebay, have noticed a lot of the bargains on TKmaxx end up there as some folk try to make a quick profit, but you might find one pop up at a reasonable price, there is an IP black one but they are asking £1200 for it, which is a substantial jump from TKmaxx price.

  32. I think it happened all the time, when assembling watches from whatever was in the parts bins lol- I had a Gradus that said 17 on the dial but was actually 19. Probably last year's dial stock and a movement that came in a few days ago. I think in some factories you just got what you were given. Especially if you are on piece work - you won't hang around waiting for the correct parts to arrive. You are going to make watches, and keep making watches!

  38. I dread looking at a watch and getting that thought "should I sell it?" because that means the answer is probably yes! I even thought about selling my Nixon lefty 300m today, which can't be right ... but the minute hand does annoy me a bit and the PVD looks prone to scratching ... The Death Knell lol

  41. My first post, prompted, really, by the PRS10 vs CWC musings in a thread on here. Just thought I'd add some thoughts and pics, having bought a PRS10S fairly recently. Well, first off, I took the pics below when I decided to sell it on, but as I looked at my photos, I started thinking: 'that's just too nice to sell'! What brought me to buy it? What brought me to think of selling it? Why did I change my mind? The G10 is iconic. It's the watch that epitomises my era of service; that said, I actually wore a 16710 for the bulk of my service, and more recently, a 'Blake' Seamaster, for its
