  17. I see your 2005 Eco-Drive and raise you my 1977 Citizen Crystron solar. They weren't trying to hide the solar cells then and like most new innovations on the market over 40 years ago it was obviously over engineered....(not unlike the first analogue quartz watches from Seiko) I can leave in it a drawer for a year and it's still running and leaving it under the bench light for a few hours tops it up a treat.

  19. I'm certain that all you would-be-metallurgists realise that the OP was likely referring to watches with cases made from base metals that may be subsequently plated to make them look shinier and/or more precious, potentially belieing the possible quality of the movement and other aspects of the watch's construction. And the literal answer to the question is no. Although it's quite often yes. I hope that's clear!

  20. Not necessarily. Hamilton for instance use aluminium cases on some watches.

  21. I just ordered a nice ( at least to me) white dialed Komandirskie with 2431 caliber. I fancy pretty much the slow movements and white dials are rarer than usual,hence the choice. On plus we have the vast choices of personalisation. This is the base. I will update you once it arrives + when I choose the mod parts. Take care.

  23. Ironically in view of this thread, country-of-origin marks seem originally to have primarily been a response to German industrialization and protectionism. Country-of-origin marking laws were first enacted in the 1880s in various European countries (with the UK in the vanguard with the 1887 Merchandise Marks Act) to distinguish imported goods (particularly those from Germany) from domestic goods. In 1890, the US Congress passed protective tariff legislation - the McKinlay Tariff Act - and in addition to imposing heavy tariffs on imports, this legislation required that imported items be labell

  24. Eduard Kummer was born on 16 March 1845, in Bettlach, a municipality in the canton of Solothurn, Switzerland. At the age of 15, he commenced a watchmaking apprenticeship which resulted in his becoming a Master Watchmaker, and followed this with a number of years spent in Reconvillier and Grenchen. For a while, Kummer worked as a postman in Bettlach and innkeeper/bar landlord in Grenchen before finally returning to watchmaking in 1882. In that year, Kummer started work at the watch and watch parts company, “Obrecht & Cie,” a firm that he later wanted to take over himself but was thwarted by

  27. Dear @BondandBigM, I placed a "like" on your post here above but just wanted to thank you in particular for adding a few more details about the turret on the Defiant. I did manage to find out quite a lot of interesting details in the various sources I used for my topic, and your contribution has added to those.

  30. Thanks for the ID on that one [emoji106] it spent quite some time in a drawer forgotten about until recently, but holds time well enough so is now the one I just wear to work. And dont worry I'm not that new to watches [emoji23] the Eco-Drive is just there because I have no other autos to fill the slot and it has the window to let some light onto it.

  34. Nice watch, I've got a few Camy watches, a fairly underrated brand in my opinion.... From the style, I not convinced it is as old as 1930, Incabloc was not invented till 1934 and markings of such on the dial were more common much later... however a picture of the gold hallmarks would date it to the year of manufacture. I'm leaning more towards the 1950's or even 1960's.... This one for instance is around 1970.....

  38. Every now and then (well, more often if you believe my dearest Kristina) the alarm clock in our bedroom will be changed for a different one and Kris will throw her eyes up and ask if the new model is really any better or more useable than the previous one. I don't specifically collect modern alarm clocks, but sometimes I can't resist a particular model if I see it in a charity shop or some other pre-owned venue. As for buying a quartz alarm clock brand new, this is reserved for certain models that have a good brand name and which interest me for some reason other than just the alarm feature. T
