  2. Morning, Back to pin lever land with today’s Buler, probably 1960s and running on an uncommon 17j Ebosa 65. The original company was founded in 1945 by Charles and Albert Buhler. When they left in 1954, the business was continued by Walter Rufli although subsequent management changes in 1990 saw the brand being sold to another new owner. That version of the company went bust in 2001, with the name then being resurrected in 2007 under Asian ownership. Apparently still trading, or at least was as recently as a couple of years ago. Regards.

  20. A bit of watch trivia. From left to right; MeisterSinger, eta 2801-2, Tissot Heritage Navigator eta 2893-3, Hamilton Khaki Mechanical eta (Unitas) 6497. From eta's website, the quoted power reserve individually are; 2801 50 hours, 2893 50 hours, 6497 52 hours. All three were fully wound and set on Monday morning at approximately 7 am, and all three stopped this morning (Wednesday) within 10 minutes of each other.

  24. Do you ever dress in a collar and tie? If so, your current pair do not (IMVHO) quite do you justice — and something like a Presage or a dressier Orient (Bambino?) would serve you well. If your lifestyle is exclusively jeans and a tee shirt, indulge yourself in a Pepsi style if that’s what you like. That’s the most important bit though: buy what you like. It’s your wrist, and your money.

  30. Hi. Citizen Eco Drives and as others have mentioned, Seiko's are excellent choices and within your budget. I own many watches from £150 up to £4k and my Citizens are some of my favourites and get a lot of wrsit time. I prefer dive style watches personally but Citizen/Seiko do more dress orientated models too and as others have uded to, Orient are a very good choice. Buy something you like the look of as it's you that gets most pleasure from it at the end of the day. Cheers, Sharpey.

  31. Thank you very much for all replies and support everyone!! I feel very welcome and will have a good look at all suggestions. Out of interest, my budget is around £300 but would stretch to up to £380 for something I fall in love with. I also might be tempted to buy two watches, maybe a 009 and a Bambino? To span a range of occasions with my collection.

  32. My advice is to take your time and study the great variety of watches on display within this forum. When you have formulated an idea of what you like, and what you do not, start shopping. Start at the cheap end, as you may refine your criteria. Oh, and post pictures!

  33. I'm sorry you're having difficulty understanding my point, and clearly you're not familiar with the details of the Tulip mania and the perceived rarity factors that helped create the first well documented asset bubble and crash, so let me clarify my point. £140,000 + buyer's premium is a "really offensive" amount of money to spend on a stainless steel watch that was in the 1970s merely MOD standard issue equipment. This is an example of speculative asset bubble for something with virtually no intrinsic value (qv a tulip bulb). Price rises are based entirely on sentiment. Reading on socia

  35. Just remember you cant own every watch in the world. The temptation is to buy everything you see but there's no hurry. Take your time. Welcome aboard.

  41. OK...IT expert son sorted it...it was Ad Block. Apparently, yesterday, Youtube changed something in their protocol and if you use Ad Block on a site like ours now, the videos won't play. Thankfully, just by disabling Ad Block on TWF, (and TZ-UK) they now play again. Problem sorted.
