  10. So I had some money and of course I wanted to buy a watch BUT I wanted something a bit special from a brand I had never had before. I considered a Tudor Pelagos, a Breitling Superocean heritage, a JLC any I could afford or a Bremont Martin Baker 2. I visited my local helpful jeweller and tried on the above watches - apart from a JLC. Then I made my mistake...... I saw a moonwatch. I didn’t want to buy an Omega having had a few. I tried the moonwatch on........ It came home with me. After a decent 20% discount I was and am and will be forever in love!!! Anyway moral of the story is....t

  13. A few years ago my collection was a little less settled than I consider it to be nowadays. I occasionally move a couple of watches on here and there and even more occasionally I acquire a new one. So, I suppose you could call this the Modern Box. The front row contains the watches I wear the most. I consider the Speedy my go to watch, and the Tank my go to dress watch. The C65 is a great watch you could wear any time, but it’s really good in warm weather with that adjustable bracelet and it looks great in the sunshine. The MeisterSinger was bought recently as my retirement wa

  16. Morning, Steel-cased Gradus with a 17j AS 1686, a go-to movement for many brands. This brand name seems to have been registered in 1947 to Gladiator Watch Co. Ltd. of London, presumably merely importers and distributors of complete Gradus watches made for them by unknown others. Regards.

  22. I was about to put my super engineer bracelet on this, when I happened across this strap in the old bread bin. It is a 20mm Rios, but you may be able to tell it arrived to me on a 19mm lug watch and has been expertly squished, hence the glimpse of strap bar. I have fitted thick bars, to persuade it to 'breathe out', but if that fails, I shall iron it on the back through a damp cloth to un-squish it. Don't tell me you have never ironed your watch straps?

  24. Some of you will perhaps remember my fondness for Limit watches; my watch collecting began with this brand, and periodically, I like to refresh my acquaintance with Limit to see what goodies they are currently offering. Limit is a company with a long history and it still trundles along in its own idiosyncratic way, under the umbrella of the Time Products group, producing watches that are inexpensive yet pretty decent by and large. When I say inexpensive, I mean that the RRP of the watches rarely exceeds £30. A few days ago, I picked up a useful never-been-worn Limit "beater" in the form of a b

  25. Morning all. I’m still in my bed watch (i.e. one with a loud enough tick to ease me to the land of Nod, but not loud enough to annoy the current Mrs LoiusWu) Smiths 5 Jewel cheers

  28. 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

MAJAK, 16 Jewels, Made In USSR (by 1st MWF), circa late 1950s & NEWMARK (made by Louis Newmark, Croydon England, un-jeweled pin-pallet movement) circa mid-1950s I hope my 80 plus year old next door neighbour isn`t disturbed by the Newmark`s tick

  30. In my experience, Paul Buhre timepieces were generally retailed with 'quality' movements, so no surprise your's keeps good time A common movement they used was the FEF 350. The 350 base ebauche was regularly used in Rolex (Tudor) & Breitling timepieces during the 50's-60's. Couple of mine in SS cases.... These can picked up relatively cheaply, many were presented as long service, retirement gifts. GARRARD's, & formerly the GOLDSMITHS & SILVERSMITHS Co, held large stocks for various companies.

  31. Thank you all, some great advice. On to researching these suggested solutions....really like the Fortis, very clear with the size and contrast. That large dial suggested would fit the bill but winding/setting could be problematic.

  32. Certainly not disappointed with the Pelagos. Saving up again now and after all the favourable comments I think a CW may be my next purchase. Thanks for all the info.

  34. Interesting. It's the first mechanical watch I had had for about 30 years (I bought it in 2008). Definitely a favourite.

  35. Good deal I have a couple of quartz somewhere and this auto, it has been faultless. Big M bought it for me probably about 15 years ago and I’m sure she said it was in a sale for about £60

  39. Afternoon all. so I went exploring through my boxes of bits, trying to find a specific strap I remember having but can’t find... and discovered a watch I’d forgotten I had. Popped a battery in and she’s running like a good un. Hurrah .. but snapping the caseback on caused the minute hand lume to explode all over the dial. Boooo in my exuberant youth I would now be trying to figure out the weird stem removal process to get the thing apart and cleaned up.... but these days I’ll just live with its imperfections. cheers
