  4. Morning, Today this 1950s German-made Vidar, the makers of which remain a matter of speculation and, mercy of mercies, I won’t bore you with details of how various “inconclusive conclusions” were reached The movement deserves a brief mention - a 17j Guba 1100SC by Gustav Bauer of Ellmendingen, near Pforzheim, and a calibre sufficiently rare for it not to have been known to any of the main archives. However, that has now been remedied on one of them. Regards.

  20. I love my Aquis but I have to agree you should never sell a watch you really like. Save up and get an Aquis too or buy via interest free credit.

  28. I was delighted to find the original posting. I have my father's Audax Fortis wristwatch and have been trying to find out whatever I can about it. It is identical to the Audax Fortis illustrated as (pics from img1.etsystatic.com) with the same blue AR monogrammed case shown further down. I have always known my father wearing this watch and it would make sense that he must have bought it in the early 60s. It still runs and keeps good time despite not having been serviced for many, many years. Unfortunately, the rolled gold case is badly in need of restoration. The s/steel case back is marked in

  29. I used Replate It from Canada https://www.replateit.com/ I did look for somewhere in the UK but the prices were all high and reviews so-so, It cost $65 for a single coat and refinish and $35 for additional coats. I went for one as I will only be wearing it occasionally as it has to fit in with all my other Helvetias. Of course there is postage as well but it was still cheaper than anything else I was quoted. There are loads of good reviews about them and I can't fault the service or the result. It took a little while, about 3 months, but as it had been sat in a drawer waiting f

  30. My first watch was a Timex and I find it really hard to shake that association with childhood. I know they make some really good watches, but there's still something in my head saying "yeah, but for children". Totally irrational. Would counselling help?

  39. A lot of non-watch people think Timex just make cheap basic looking unadventurous watches, afterall many of our first watches as a child was a Timex, but although they aren`t particularly expensive they do produce a nice selection that covers all categories, i was one who thought the former, but since i`ve become a bit more interested in watches my eyes have been opened so to speak.
