  1. Morning, Today this 35mm UMF with its short-lived (1961 – 1963) UMF 23-32 movement. The darker upper and lower segments of the dial are textured to provide different shadings depending upon the angle of light, just one of these superficialities to which I’m so easily attracted. Regards.

  8. I am rather pleased with myself today. From a local charity shop that is usually too expensive for me when it comes to watches, I snapped up a boxed and unused Police Serenity automatic for £30. I always assumed that Police concentrated almost solely on quartz watches but it seems that there are/have been quite a few different mechanical Police models. I nearly didn't bother to have the shop cabinet opened for me to have a close look as I thought that the watch would be over the odds in price, and I certainly didn't expect it to be an automatic. The watch has a 45 mm X 14 mm brushed stainless

  9. How about this Casio EB300, world time/data bank watch, very 1980's sci-fi........ This rather 'blocky' picture shows the globe which rotates continuously...... (taken before I fitted the NOS case which has a slightly different bezel style)

  16. This watch is interesting, because most Chaika watches were small in size and aimed at women, and the factory was named in honour of Tereshkova. This therefore is mainly pastry around a very small amount of mechanical 'jam'. Although not comical, it is pulling it's tongue at a very expensive Swiss watch from the same time. I didn't make a record unfortunately at the time I spotted its progenitor, but I do remember thinking any similarity, in terms of quality and execution, was less than striking at any range below a thousand yards. Still, I like my Seagull.

  20. Aha! Found it. Pretty sure that the flat serrated bezel on my Chaika, along with the vestigial 'screws' on the case, and integrated crown guard (which my crown does not actually retreat into!), are a hat tip to the Ebel Voyager range of world-time watches launched in 1989. This would mean my watch is possibly 30 years old - the Russians still stoically making cheap wind-up watches in the face of all that quartz competition.

  22. This one for sure. Kids gave me it so I have to wear it now and again. No need for a tool to remove the case back. Finger nails will suffice. The dial is cardboard. The strap was also full of cardboard but one of my Timex's died so its strap lives on attached to this monstrosity.

  25. Christopher Ward watches seem to ably fulfil the wishes of today's watch collectors and buyers who want quality, variety that keeps within the idiom of the company, and decent prices that don't head off into the stratosphere. Indeed, for the most part, CW gets it about right, new logo or old.

  26. Same here, not a brand I have looked at closely. They get a lot of love from collectors, and I've always considered @Karruselto be quite discerning guy, so with eleven in his collection I don't see how they can anything other than a quality offering. All that said, and getting back to @Philzrequest, I think that they appear to be really good specs, really good value for money, Swiss made, and British designed. Not much to dislike really. I think I'd rather give my money to Christopher Ward than Tudor to be very honest.

  31. @Always"watching" Doesn't look like we're going to get any pictures. Anyway, I've now translated the 2-page history of Suevia in Schmidt's "Lexikon" and it's clear the company never made watches. He thinks "Suevia" was originally (c1906) the budget brand of Mauthe for alarm clocks and regulators with American movements, sold in department stores and bazzars. It was bought out in 1921 by Gustav Rich, who was a technical manager at Mauthe. In the 1930s it sold living room clocks with mechanical and electrical movements under the brands "Nonstop" and "Rich". It may also have made electrical

  36. Such a beautiful watch when it is taken off that hideous leather strap that Seiko put it on. A watch with a dial, and hands to die for! I know the 6R15 movement gets quite a bit of bad press, but I have five or so watches with that movement and found it a pretty solid. Thanks for sharing I can always rely on you to show me a watch I have never heard of. Thanks for sharing. I have a soft spot for old Rolex watches from the 1960's... and modern hairdryers
