  4. Morning, An unappealing prospect when bought as a beat up non-runner and missing its seconds hand, but the Oberon name was enough to give it a chance. Made by the surprisingly under-documented company started by Erwin Rudolf in 1951, the original Oberon company seems to have become inactive by the 1970s. This one dates from the ‘50s and runs on a 17j Brac 903 as opposed to their own similarly obscure Oberon calibre which, contrarily, appears in some of my Josmar examples. Regards.

  6. Morning, apparently one of these was strapped to a dog's leg on Sputnik 4. I wondered why the scientist didn't strap it to the manikin, also on board. Well the reason could be that, although the dog returned safely with the capsule, the manikin was ejected at a height of 7 km! As were Gagarin and Tereshkova, descending the final 20 000 feet by parachute. 30mm screw case Pobeda. HAGD

  10. Just taken delivery of an Arminda A1 Brass. Really, really liking it. Better than I was expecting. It is a striking piece. Went for the black dial, no date. The lume is mega, it came in a lovely watch roll rather than the plastic tube container, the buckle is so much nicer too. Thought it was going to be on a Panerai style wide buckle, but it is a thinner style buckle. The strap is very supple. The bezel action is wonderful, nice clicks and no back play. Even Mrs Spanks said, ‘oh, I like that’ that never happens!!!!! Highly recommend one of these. Going to boil a c

  13. I seem to be running out of ideas for new additions that are "different" to all the various watches in my collection, and I often see something I like and then realise I've got something similar already. In fact, on more than one occasion I've bought 2 watches that are exactly the same except for a different dial colour... I thought I'd try a smartwatch for a change, not really for the "smart" features, but just because the design looks a bit quirky compared to anything else I've got. I did see one of these up for sale on here recently, but I was too slow to pull the trigger, and it sold be

  16. Blimey. If we end up with nuclear war that will still be here along with fred dibnas traction engine. Buckles bigger than my watch. You might need a years subscrption to brasso. You will need a big gun or it will live. Are you taking out contracts. Theres a few on here we want sorting if you know what i mean.

  17. I did the first 12 months on here with the same 1 watch every day. And it was just a longines hydroconquest. No one bothered. Most of em forget what they saw yesterday anyway. So no worries you will be fine with that all the time. I find when ive only one i bond better. Thats why we get married apparantly makes us put up with the wife. Imagine having a box full to choose from.

  20. I bought this as a non-runner. Apart from not working, it's in good condition and the movement number matches the case, so I think it will be worth getting fixed. London hallmark dates to 1872, if I'm reading it right. Can't make out the maker's mark though, which is irritating. Any thoughts? Hallmarks Maker to the Royal Observatory. I've already got two Sir John Bennett Ltd wristwatches, so this seemed like the next logical development.

  21. And yet they seem to generate more passion among watch people than anything this side of a rolex submariner...not bad for a throw away watch that cost maybe 50 quid between 1988 and 1998. A weird thing is the t32. The rub is many are still ok. Maybe we just love the under dogs.

  22. No such things as "parts" for these really. It was always designed as a cheap throw-away module unfortunately. Some clever souls make a decent living canibalising parts, swapping coils etc but its generally more money than the watch is worth sadly. I still love them, but collecting 7t32 models is a lifetime of heartache

  27. Arrived on Saturday after being ordered online in America and visiting Switzerland on the way over. Better travelled than me this year!! I saw it one here a few weeks ago and ordered it immediately, the US cost and shipping was cheaper than that offered in the UK......?! Its smaller than I though but doesn't look too bad on the wrist, not the usual Diver that I wear but nice none the less. It took a while to set up, the booklet is so small and my eyesight is getting worse, a bit fiddly with the menus but we got there in the end.

  29. I own over 40 of these 7T32 watches, and about 30 spare movements...all the comments made above are totally correct, these movements are a pain in the 4rse. They can be 'repaired' if you are brave enough, and competent enough, but if it were me I would do one of two things... Run away. Get a donor movement from a cheap Lorus Y182 based watch which is the same module (battery plate is the only difference) and do a swap. They are a great watch when the work, and a complete nightmare when they don't. If you go down the route of a Lorus Y182 be totally sure that all the f

  35. My best guess, discounting similar marks registered in the 18th century, would be John Hammon (IH), 11 Seckforde St, Clerkenwell, London. It would appear from a quick search on the net, there are plenty of references to marriages between the families of Bennett & Hammon, quoted as being in the profession of watch/case making. It was common, both here & in Europe, that marriages would occur between watchmaking families. No real surprise as families usually met & mixed within the same social circles. Nice timepiece BTW, well worth fettling, IMHO!
