  8. Morning, Today this French-made Kered (Louis Braham, threads passim) and is another “Resurrection Special” from my watchmaker - called Derek, as it happens. Housed in what is probably anodised aluminium, this one is powered by a 15j Cupillard 233 and I’ve included a “before” image in case anyone’s interested. Regards.

  9. Bit of a 'Trigger's broom' for me today. A Casio DW 6630B like the one below was bought back in 1998 for use at work. I wore it for a year, then for some reason, the module packed up. About a month after this happened, I was on holiday on Jersey and a chance stroll down a backstreet in one of the towns (I really can't remember which) found me in front of a little watch shop and I saw the identical watch in the window. However, the backlight didn't work, but as I never used it anyway, I negotiated and bought the watch for a reduced price. It then served me well for 14-15 years at work as a land

  17. I've been looking for a new strap for the Grand Regatta and decided to try a leather nato. In blue to match my eyes. It's rather thick and bulky to look at, but comfortable to wear.

  20. Another lovely chrono, although I will have to take another picture and blow it up to figure out my time, after I have undertaken my exertions. I have a few autos scattered about in winders now, including my bullhead Citizen chrono, but while that watch may be fine for timing sprints in one's Ferrari, actual running impairs its precision. So this is my grab and go for pounding the pavements.

  34. While browsing eBay for some Art Deco china I stumbled on a rather stylish Ferranti synchronous electric clock......... Sellers original pictures:-.... Well it got me interested and I did some online research and decided that if I could get it cheap it would be an interesting project... The bottom line is that it apparently did not appeal to many others and I got it for £14 It arrived yesterday in the post and on unpacking it I was pleasantly surprised that other than the original mains lead cut off and the fact that it had 80+ years of grime on it, it was in

  35. There has been mixed reviews, some people have had issues with them, I haven't and it keeps time well. @Raymond Spanks thanks, will have a look. The Yema one I have is nice, just way too long for me! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Navygraf. The first lug makes the strap stick out a bit over a small wrist, but as I've said, that is a bonus to me as it means it just fits. And its versatile - see below... @sabailand the Yema has been the most expensive purchase behind my Astrographic. It's cheap in the scheme of what people pay I know. If I had to do a one watch trip, this would b

  37. This was on my Christmas list, but I have noticed there are a couple of new 200m versions out, so I have been umming and aaaaahing. Looks terrific! p.s. the strap will be fine over your wetsuit. p.p.s while I was trying to choose a Certina dive watch I accidentally bought a completely different microbrand field watch!

  38. New York Times portrait of Donald "Don" Blakeslee (pic from static01.nyt.com): Avi-8 is a British-based watch company that specializes in watches that appeal strongly to aviation enthusiasts, with designs that are peppered with allusions to famous and historical planes. The example we are looking at here is the newly launched Avi-8 P-51 Mustang Blakeslee Chronograph, and this model pays tribute not only to the Mustang itself but also to one of the great fighter aces of World War Two - the American pilot Donald Blakeslee. Given that the watch is inspired by, and n
