  4. Morning, It’ll be this 34mm Gervais-Penard today. French-made and running on a 13j LiP R148 electro-mechanical movement. This one dates from the late 1960s and contemporary adverts, along with the battery clamp, indicate that it was a Benrus brand. Regards.

  14. Excellent stuff, I'm glad you're still wearing and enjoying that one mate. Looks good, and always makes me smile when you post a pic I'm wearing the same G-Shock Carbon Core again today - Sometimes I can't be bothered to change every day, and I really like this one:

  15. Just received my competition prize from Roy, thank you,Sir Am now able to offer comprehensive servicing for all horological timepieces, including tri-axis Tourbillon's & Carrousel's. Obviously my rates will be greatly inflated due to the immense cost of setting up a workshop. ... *Jon @PC-Magician I know your initial reaction will be "Wow! that is one fully equipped workshop" but I'm confident there will enough punters for both of us.

  18. In the 22 August issue of New Scientist (No. 3296) there was a fascinating feature described on the front cover as, “Time to Rethink Time: Inside the incredibly slow race to reinvent the second.” The feature article was titled, “Just a second”, and was by Rachel Nuwer, a science writer based in New York. The text of this topic, that follows here below, is based on Rachel Nuwer’s article and the associated informative sidebars: Whilst the flow of time is an enigma, with some physicists suggesting that it is merely an illusion, clock time is a man-made concept defined by the hours, minutes

  20. Following on from the drill press table, I spent this week making a router table. Due to the limited space in my garage workshop, I needed something that wouldn't take up much space when not in use, so opted to make this table to the KISS principle (keep it super simple). It's basically just a sheet of 19mm WBP ply with an 8mm acrylic plate to support the router let into the top. It will sit on top of my stools when I need to use it, and can be stored against the wall when not in use. No fancy lift mechanism, either... to adjust it, you just lift it out and adjust as normal.

  21. Already plenty of Lavender and Bluebells around which is probably what attracted them in the first place. It's like after a hard days pollinating and nectar-gathering they just want to hang around "the pool" drinking with their mates!

  22. Interesting read that and a fascinating subject but it does remind me of an argument that was progressing through the 1980/1990s about submarine navigation, the quandary was that at the time, underwater navigation was by means of a very accurate Electrostatically Supported Gyro Navigator which was extremely accurate but to retain accuracy a positional fix was required every xxx hours. Then there was the new kid on the block which was a gravitational field navigator which was equally accurate but didn't require fixes (other than human comfort-confirmation fixes). Quandary? Well, the ESGN

  25. Lewis's was the first department store to open in Manchester, in 1877. So it could be the the watch was their inhouse brand. https://manchesterhistory.net/manchester/tours/tour5/area5page49.html https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/nostalgia/lewiss-ca-pauldens-shops-miss-14644680

  26. While I really like the Grand Seiko, there is very little about it's appearance that makes it look much different to the good old SKX007, so I picked the Ulysse Nardin purely as it looked 'a bit different', but still looked like a divers watch. Quite frankly I wouldn't swap my vintage Jaquet Droz diver/chrono, that I owned for the last 52, years for any of them.......

  27. Well, the movement is an 18''' Thiel "Champion" (possibly also ID'd as a Thiel 04). Stem-wound and pin-set, no jewels or anti-shock and dating from around 1904/5. Regards.

  38. Morning, Today this 35mm German-made FBU running on a17j ETA 2390. Made by Franz Burger Uhren of Pforzheim whose tiny monogram also appears under the balance wheel and about whose activities I have found virtually nothing. The linen-effect dial also seems strangely reluctant to say very much at all. Regards.

  42. Morning... First of all, these are not mine Son-in-law asked me to replace the batteries yesterday...okay! He acquired these about 10 years ago, before acquiring a mechanical (vintage) fondness. Made by the SEIKO corporation for the Italian fashion house MANDARINA DUCK. This first one was originally supplied on a bespoke fitted rubber band, which eventually broke. He sent the watch head & unusual lug fittings to STEVEOSTRAPS who fashioned a replacement to his requirements, along with a spare. This second one still retains original band...
