  1. A vintage Zenith Respirator automatic, cal 2562PC, circa 1972 This model seems to suffer gasket failure due to lack of service/replacement, hence the damage to the dial. But I love it nevertheless.

  5. This morning's new arrival and my first venture onto Chrono24. Also, a brand that I don't have to look up. Moved straight onto a Gekota strap in place of the padded Speidel strap it came on. Now waiting for a sticky ball to arrive so I can get the back open.

  6. Morning, Today this Unichron which probably dates from the 1960s. Some contributors to the interweb state that this brand was the result of a short-lived collaboration between the GDR’s Ruhla and the Mormon Church, as exotic if improbable a pairing as you could ever imagine. It’s possible that these commentators are conflating the brand with a Ruhla attribution in Mikrolisk but as today’s effort is driven by a French-made 17j Lorsa P76 I’m disinclined to accept their “wisdom” at face value. Whatever, it’s one of these oddities which warrant a torch being shone on its little dark

  17. Not bored at all, but here are two different views of my change for the office. I think I need a new jacket. I have noticed that as my watch collection has expanded, my wardrobe has got longer in the tooth! HAGD

  18. That moment when you have to give up trying to get a low-light shot in focus because you notice the time, and realise the burning smell wafting through the atmosphere is your lasagne. Enjoy your evening. Good job I like the crispy bits!

Hi all, I’ve always wanted a bullhead but couldn’t afford one unless I sold most of my collection.. so did some searching and oh my !! arrived this morning and I’m chuffed to bits.. sits well and the story is lovely and soft.. the watch looked even better in the flesh imho Minolta movement I believe.. ?! But overall over the moon and back ..would highly recommend

  26. I got my first bully on sale from Kickstarter Stuckx, but the case profile didn't suit me, and I gave it away, only to almost instantly buy a Citizen challenge timer after spotting one in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. It lives on my winder because of the day complication. Every collection should have a bullhead! I thought mine was good value, I offered way below asking price. It was one of those where you think you will get a counter offer thus giving you time to think about it but instead ...

  27. I only have the one CW and it's very well made and finished, it also keeps good time. I don't think I would have paid full price for it though, I got it for a 3rd of the price as a display model. It duly arrived fully boxed with all stickers on etc. It also has the loudest rotor noise I have ever heard from a watch, and I own some really crap watches.

  28. I bought a Pepsi GMT and a regular Sub when you could just walk into Goldsmiths and buy them, sold them and bought a bi-metal GMT C and a Sub LV. In my mind more of an upgrade rather than a dislike of the originals.

  29. Re the opening post, although a different kind of watch i like the blue hands on the cartier tank, i think they look great, but the blue hands on this just dont look right, its as if its trying too hard to be different, not being different would have been a better way to go here, should have just stuck to black. The one you bought in its place much better, im not a fan of multi dial watches but this still looks good!

  30. I have never done them in close succession but I had a steel pasha, sold it and years later bought a gold one. I had a 50p shape s/g santos, sold it and bought a square one. Sold it and replaced with the galbee model (curved links rather than the flat type that could crease) Sold a prebond seamaster, missed it and bought the Brosnan type one (which zi had owned previously in cronograph form)

  31. No longer having use for one, I do find GMT hands a bit irritating, but not as bad as the dreaded 24 hr dial which is less useful still, and which this Citizen, like many others, has, but since it will be the only one in my collection, it may prove useful eventually - every dog has his day!

  32. Seiko still market a 'Bullhead' within their 'ProSpex' range. The bezel's dark green, and the watch costs around £2K if you're interested...probably a JDM model as I've never seen it marketed here.

  33. I bought a Rolex GMT in 2010 when Subs were difficult to come by. Tried to tell myself that the it was cheaper Watch with an additional function which made it the better buy (the depth rating didn’t really bother me). Didn’t fancy the wait and could believe that there was a wait for a Rolex. Fast forward a few years, got the SubC. Much happier, don’t miss that GMT one bit!

  41. 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

  42. Buy what you like. By the time they restrict Diesel cars to the point of it causing you problems petrol won't be far behind. As it stands right now you have 20 years (2040) before conventional fuels are set to be phased out completely. Do we believe that number? Nope. As anything it will be a shifting goalpost depending how far along the tech has come and how reliant the government are on fuel duty. The tech is the crucial bit. We need electric cars which will run all day on a single charge, or are all capable of this rapid charge (30-odd minutes) that some Tesla's have. A

  43. I'll have you know they were bought at TK MAX-i-mum, and they were not on the shelf for stuff they want to get out of the store quicker than normal. I don't wear them to be honest because they are the smallest 'large' underwear I have ever bought. They are nutcrackers. Either my 4rse is extra large...or the company that made them have a very different idea for size large. *UPDATE* I have checked the name on the underwear and the name does not match with the watch brand you have been discussing. My underwear is by Beverly Hills Polo Club. I am sure that everyone k
