  3. Morning, Today this 1950s UMF from the jolly funsters of the GDR. This effort runs on a surprisingly large (12.5’’’) Thiel/UMF 54-31, an agricultural movement and a complete stranger to any jewels whatsoever. Regards.

  10. Morning Was going to wear this the other day but it had stopped (been in the dark for a while), so put in the light for a day to charge, but didn't work. Left it for a few days and still didn't seem to work. Started thinking might have to go to the expense of getting a new movement, but then when looking at troubleshooting problems with solar chronos found out you need to reset the movement before it will work again, hey presto worked. Breathed a huge sigh of relief, really didn't fancy fiddling with the small sub dial hands with my eyesight these days. Orient 'Neo 70's Horizon' Sola

  12. Not seen this rascal for a while, still ticking, Harwood powered Organa (by Selza SA): These crop up with brands from Selza registered as far as currently known between the twenties and forties, which ties in with Stern's assertion that Selza were involved from the start, 'and after ' with production of Harwood powered watches. Stern is the editor of Walter Flume's work to re-translate the book of erstwhile technical head at Rolex (Emile Borer) "Contemporary Watch Repair and Correction" back into German, so I am banking on him knowing his onions. Interestingly, the word Automatic

  13. Painting today (GLOSS!!!) So no watch today other than the ghostly imprint of where a watch once was, and pale skin where the sun doesn't reach. I'd normally wear my Casio 'beater' while doing DIY, but no watch deserves a glossing. Have a great day guys (when I say guys, I actually include any 'gals' in that term, and any person who does not associate themselves as male or female ) Was that pc enough? Should have been this, could have been this, would have been this, but gloss mist from a roller???.

  24. I think the Entry-Level category comes next and is known as Challenge. As you might guess, watches under CHF 4000. I won’t spoil it for Scott, but I think there will be another very clear winner there. One thing these threads have shown is that in terms of our taste in watches we tend to be a fairly conservative bunch, especially with regard to our insistence on legibility.

  25. Most interesting thread. For those of you who are interested in the Quartz Crisis more generally may I direct you to my own work on the subject which was posted on the Forum in November 2016. To find this, just enter "The Quartz Crisis" into the Forum Search feature under topic titles, and you will then obtain the relevant links. This lengthy article was posted in three parts - Part 1, Part 2(a) and Part 2(b), and I hope that I did justice to this most important subject.

  27. It was not just quartz, which the Swiss were also developing (BETA 21 had backers such as Omega, Patek Philippe, Rolex and more, Girard Perregaux made the first watch movement running at 32khz which is now the industry standard), but then there was money thrown at R&D for LED, LCD and still some electronic movements, all of which had a limited shelf life. One of the other factors was the gold price, which started the seventies at £15 an ounce and finished at £260. If you are making gold watches and a the case material increases in price at that rate you will struggle

  28. 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.

  29. I think you will find that Moser vanished for a while. The current company, Moser Schaffhausen AG was formed in 2002. It’s actually a newer operation than FP Journe, or Nomos, or Lange to mention a few other Johnnies come lately.

  33. “Aiguille d’Or” is the main prize. "Petite Aiguille” is described as "watches with a retail price between CHF 4,000 and CHF 10,000." So is this the entry level category? I thought it might be for watches with small/thin hands, but apparently not. Is that George from Rainbow on the Sarpaneva?

  43. I have got an original Airman from the mid 1960's. It has an AS1700/1 movement in it and works superbly. The only problem I have is that it is a hacking model and it used to have a little bar that popped up through a tiny hole it the 12 position to stop the second hand when setting (Like they do in the war films!). At some point the bar has gone missing so the hack feature is no more. Anyone out there with any spare bits to fix this?
