  6. Morning, A recent pick from the sawdust-filled tub labelled “Rotary Vintage Watches”, today’s effort was sold for spares with images provided of the dial and case back and…er…that’s it. On arrival it turned out to be a 35mm steel-cased jobbie running on a rather smart 17j AS 1900/01 as also found in the JLC Club, and with a power reserve of more than 55 hours, comfortably exceeding Ranfft’s estimate of 48. Simple and with blemishes, just like its new owner. Regards.

  19. Hope you're all well. Would love a Citizen 8110 Bullhead, but came across this from Detroit Mint, a Mach Bullhead. I’m quite taken with it. Not expensive, but most of my watches aren’t. Satisfied the vintage Bullhead look with modern Citizen movement. Came with a nice watch roll, spring bar, and some extra spring bars. Got the bracelet at an additional cost as I always prefer to have a bracelet if there’s the option to. Standard it come on a Black Leather strap with is really nice and feels quite good quality. The underside is very soft.

  23. About 25 years ago in my late 20s I bought my first "luxury" watch , A Breitling Colt. It cost about £1300 back then and was £1100 more than I had ever spent. I just put it on and wore if for 7 years. Every day. It got a few marks and scratches but its a watch after all .... My advice is that if you are going to spend a lot of money on a watch , then wear the bloody thing ... My view may seem a bit laid back but in all honesty life is about living and dings and scratches are a part of the watches "life" .... so I say chill and enjoy .... what ever watch is on your wrist ..

  25. @chocko It's been a long time since I've seen that sign and the memorial! Used to live in Trefechan, amongst other locations but had friends that lived near the campus in Llanbadarn. Between the Gog and the Lion we were pretty set there! I used to frequent Anthony Motors quite a bit for parts for my clapped out Polo too. Almost made it back in a few weeks but the start haven't aligned This week I've been mostly French - worked out the discomfort I was experiencing is nothing to do with the strap and just a flare up of my ganglion and wrist strain so its back on steel (this is a

  26. I should like to be open with the group - I have a bit of a problem when it comes to watches; I seem to keep buying them. Some are nice shiny, modern ones, which are lovely. But some are rather tired old ones. I like to think they have patina; which is good, right? But sometimes I get one which tests even my ability to look for the good. And I do like a bargain. If they are broken, or just ugly, they go in the drawer and I'll worry about them when I have time (or more likely, my heirs can shovel them into the skip). But this one, has got under my skin, and I don't really know what to

  31. One of my favourite watches is this VERY early (Aug 1972) Seiko 3803 quartz analogue that's new price, in 1972, was the equivalent of around £3,500 in 2020.....I bought it a few years ago, before they were seen as collectable, for £25. I still see it as a very expensive watch, worth far more to me than some mass produced £200 watch and you can keep your new 'poverty spec' £2K watches I'll stick with my vintage watches........ Incidently I picked this watch up today to wear and as I had to advance the date by one day, it would appear that I last wore it in July.......I checked the ti

  32. OXFAM or Sue Ryder ? Firstly, the hands are what I recognise as Obelisque style. The dial decoration appears to have been pressed with applied printing & indices. Depending on the type & condition of the movement (?) it may be worthwhile considering re-plating the case back? Or just simply applying a case back sticker, trimmed to cover the wear? Looks like the previous owner/wearer has worn it on a nato style one piece strap, IMO. Your call.

  33. Yes sad news. I always liked him as a boxer and in particular his fights with Finnegan. On a couple of occasions, after his career had ended, he used my local pub when he was having some nasal repair work done at the local hospital. It was a locals pub on a small council estate and at the the time he was a very well known personality, so it was quite a big deal really. He got a very cordial welcome and just sat quietly in the corner with his wife while they had a couple of drinks and thanked everyone (for basically being friendly and leaving him alone) when he left.

  38. The Airman above is gunmetal grey PVD and after I bought it I was wondering if I shouldn't have got a plain stainless steel version. Don't get me wrong I really like the gunmetal grey but I am not a big fan of leather straps and finding a gunmetal grey bracelet was a problem. It was until I found a 22mm gunmetal mesh bracelet by Vincero being sold as an accessory to fit one of their watches. Took a chance and ordered it and very pleased with the result

  41. Glyphosate is the most effective weed killer I ever used in a professional capacity. But be warned...spray on a calm day, especially near a lawn, because spray drift can be a problem if it's windy. Secondly, don't expect to see immediate results...the effects can take up to three weeks to show. But it does work. Re the breakdown...any solution that doesn't land on plants is broken down by soil microbes and rendered harmless. It can be sprayed around the stems/trunks of woody shrubs and trees with no detrimental effect on them.

  42. "Why didn't you retire earlier?" The first year of retirement was awesome, and so has this year...even with the Covid nonsense. Looking forward to better times. If I can enjoy myself during a pandemic, which I have done, imagine what it'll be like when we return to normal! And I'm still going to the Algarve in October, whether we're on the two week isolation on return or not...makes no difference to us...we're retired and don't venture out much anyway. And just as a matter of interest, who would police it anyway?
