  1. Good morning Gents. Spirit 6r15d, a lot of people assume the styalised 'S' on the crown is for Seiko....apparantly it was not. When these first cropped up in the Seiko catalogues as just another new Seiko 100m sports automatic and took aim at the new 'work wear' philosophy or 'spirit excellence' being brain washed in Japan. They were not slotted into the dressy posh Presage range. So they were given the marketing tag of 'Spirit'. As an allude to their more get up ang go sporty 100m intent. The snake like S on the crown. Was intended to identify this watch as the new Seiko Spi

  5. Morning, To my mind, this 1950s Newmark Waterguard is one of Croydon’s better-looking efforts from those days, something not difficult to achieve. They also lightly decorated their 5j Cal. 10.5’’’ movement for this model, bless ‘em. Regards.

  11. Part one... SEIKO SKZ211(RLT modified & imo definitely improved, rotating inner bezel), cal.7S36, 23 Jewels (made in April 2005) & ORIENT CEM65006D, cal. EM85CS, 21 Jewels Edit - here`s a photo to show what an unmodified SKZ211 looks like.... As I`ve already indicated imo Roy`s version is far more useful then the original. Well done Mr Taylor

  16. When the quack discharge me from hospital he told me to take it easy for a few days. I liked the sound of that so I took him at his word and have just been laying around, so much so that I just went to take a pic for today’s thread and noticed my LV had actually stopped I thought it was a bit dark for one o’clock

  19. I usually like my Sarb on its bracelet, but ive been finding it a big tighter lately...must be old age. And putting an extra link in has it miles to big. Its the lack of micro. My wrist swells when it gets hot. Ive been trying all sorts of straps and bought most over the net. But thought Id go and browse in a shop as I cant seem to get what im happy with. Ive played safe and got a hirsch croco from Goldsmiths this morning. It looks a lot better. I was looking at the new Alpinist in Goldsmiths this morning that looks a lot better than the old one too with the button sticking out t

  26. I still have this one, the small 24hr register can be independently set with the pusher at 4 o’clock. It’s about 15 years old now so I doubt if they are still available but it was only about £60/70, still keeps good time and works perfectly.

  27. I'd like a little bit more information here, dear Rotundus, and perhaps a couple of pics. Are there Seiko watches that are very similar to their Marine Master models but without the name "Marine Master" on the dials?

  29. Yes it is a bit fiddly but that is what I have done in the past. I think I used an X-acto knife with a #11 blade to open up the chain end.

  31. Hi, I have seen lots of arguments for 'Go Anywhere, Do Anything' watches, but I'm not buying it - I think there are versatile watches, but not one that does your scuba gear and your tuxedo. Anyway, if you disagree, there is no point playing, because this thread is about three watches - or six, as I shall explain - and the premise that you need a multi-purpose watch plus a specialist diver (just in case, I dunno, you are a watch nut, you need a diver for heaven's sake) AND a dress watch, (just in case, I dunno, maybe we will do some fancy socialising again some day, or gift it or bequeath it

  36. +1 for sticking with the current strap. If however it isn't what you want, I'd recommend Steveostraps - he makes custom straps so can pretty much do whatever you want. Very good service!
