  4. Morning, This steel-cased Andrew today, probably early 1950s and driven by a 15j Venus 180. I suspect no connection with the Bulova brand of the same name, nor with Andrew & Co of London who likely were the UK importers of “The Hatton” brand from Amida and presumably responsible for watches badged as “Andrew The Hatton”. No sign of any Import Code on the movement, but possibly by the original Nivada watch company, purely going by the presence of the term “Compensamatic”. Regards.

  11. It`s my birthday today, I officially become an oap* I put these on when I got up.... Accurist Clerkenwell 1946 & RUHLA 91203M, MADE IN GERMANY, Ronda Cal.5030.D I have a couple of other watches wrapped up for the special day which I`ll be getting later * I should have been one last year but the government in London moved the retirement age back so I couldn`t get my state pension. Fecking bar stewards!! Oh well, they are down there in the smog while we are up here where the air is crystal clear & the local scenery is

  19. I'm not trying to compete with @Jet Jetskion 'who is wearing the most rust-Tick watch'...but I think we are wear watches today that have had a tough 'paper round' I love this old watch, yes it has the face only a mother could love, but I got it for next to nothing , and no watch I own has surprised me more. Seiko 6205-8940 SELFDATER, 24 Jewel Automatic. Made August 1965. The odd thing is that I decided I liked this watch so much that I bought another one about a year later, and the serial number is different by around 200, my guess is that they were made on the same

  24. I can’t really contribute much to the section in terms of practical projects, because I don’t have a great array of practical or DIY skills. I am amazed at some of the things I see people making, even the things I don’t understand like @Roger the Dodger‘s project. I hope the following is acceptable, if not I’ll be happy to remove it. Back in 2011 I went to Spain to walk the Camino to Santiago, the 480 mile pilgrim route across the north of the country. I had never written a diary or journal before (or done a major long-distance hike), and all unplanned I bought a notebook and a coup

  25. I have (foolishly) taken on the task of researching and writing a horological article that requires me to do a considerable amount of translation work from French, and some German, into English. I have been forced to slow down my output of articles generally, and I shall take this particular topic slowly. Hopefully, it will eventually appear here on the Forum ... By that time, I hope it will be ME that is renovated.

  26. Probably the worst photo to show this off, but I picked this up on Saturday - a four hour round trip and a very early start. It was actually really nice to be up super early as I've not really done it since lockdown. And the drive was very nice too. It's a Decca Sound SRG899 stereogram. BSR deck (not really turning at the moment, but should be a simple fix), AM/MW/FM radio tuners with twin built in amps. In remarkably good condition, particularly on the control panel. Having a twin-flip lid is really nice, so just the controls can be accessed without the whole top having to be lifted.

  31. I messed up my purchase in that I bought the watch before I had a aliexpress account. When I did register, I thought I hadn't succeeded as I didn't get a confirmation email, so I registered again with a second email address. So in a mess, I contacted them. God knows where they are, what they speak or what time it was there? But they put me on a chat page and told me the first registration process was correct and that I'd ordered abc from seller xyz, and was there anything else they could help me with? I'd gone from thinking I'd probably lost £80 (cos I didn't even know who I'd boug

  32. I have a few projects in the pipeline...a router table and a router sled. Also a new, adjustable circle cutting jig, as the old one was very simple, relying on drilled holes to select the different radii, which have become worn and inaccurate over the years. I may also consider making a simple rail saw and saw table utilising my Makita 7" skill saw.

  38. Here's my drill press table, a project that I know several are interested in seeing, including @BobJ , @Biker and others. This will be quite long and pic heavy, so bear with. As with all drill presses, they are generally made for metal working and have relatively small tables on them. (Mine's 7"x 8"). For woodworking, you need a bigger table with some kind of back fence and maybe an adjustable stop block for repetitive drilling. This table is going to be 22" wide and 15" deep. It's made out of 3/4" WBP ply which is flat and stable. It will have aluminium T track as sliders for the fe

  41. Not to hijack the thread but here is a 1954 ad for the auto version. I'm hoping the replating looks good. It's hard to see in the pics but the hands and markers are red gold and the case was yellow gold plated so it will look nice when done fingers crossed!
