  6. Morning, One of a recent bunch from a pal in the States, this 1950s steel-cased Lynn Mar today. The 17j AS 1187/94 movement is signed as Fluva Watch Co, a 1948-registered name attributed to M & JD Klopmann of Geneva and, in the absence of finding any other references, today’s wearer may have been one of their unrecorded brands. Or not. Regards.

  14. The Vostok bracelet on the Sturmanskie is very snug and yet comfortable, so I have eschewed the 'little finger gap', but although I am happy with the appearance, the way the brushed and polished finishes really complement the case ... l changed into something more comfortable for my run. HAGE

  16. I tried on a watch earlier this year that I didn't buy for the reason that I had the distinct feeling that it would be detrimental to the rest of my collection in that I would probably wear it over just about anything else. Moving on, I went out for a walk yesterday, and whilst taking care to socially distance, I tripped and fell into a jewellers shop, and on my way down I accidentally grabbed hold of the display stand and the very watch became lodged on my wrist. The shop assistant, in shock, helped me up and inadvertently removed my wallet from my pocket, which miraculously had exactly t

  18. Welcome to the Forum. I presume from your short introduction that you are seeking information about the Titus and Titoni watch brands. There is some information online about these two brands; in the case of Titoni, an introduction to the brand is given at: ethoswatches.com/the-watch-guide/titoni-the-brand-story-2/. Note that the Titoni brand started in 1919 under the name of Felco before changing to Felca AG, and lastly Titoni. It can be said that Titoni has a genuine Swiss heritage and remains in the founding Schluep family, based in Grenchen, Switzerland. The Titus name is generally ass

  19. Not sure the picture does it any justice as the the writing is very small in character on the real thing. I would agree on certain models the branding is quite bold but on this it is rather suttle. When you ready you can always ring them and I'm sure they will happily give a discount to sell a watch! I was impressed to get COSC Certified watch for this type of money well even better as they got 15% off for Black Friday.

  20. Looks good, my watch is running around +5 seconds/24 hrs on the wrist, and around +7 off dial up, which I can quite easily live with, which is a lot better than my SRPC41K1 Mini Turtle (4R35 movement)

  21. I have never had a Breitling but there is many on these forums who do own them. I do like quite a few of their models and find them to be very distinctive, they definitely have their own aesthetic about them. I guess with any watch before parting with your money the best thing to do is to have a good look around and see what appeals to yourself. My SRPE53K1 arrived today and I am very pleased with it.

  22. Mine arrived today and I am very happy with it. Took me about an hour to adjust the bracelet and managed to put the clasp on upside-down twice in a row! I cant be the only one who has done this! But apart from the resizing shenanigans it looks great and feels great and I will be keeping tabs on it over the next few days to see how it keeps time.

  23. Well the Bakelite mantel clock and the second round alarm arrived and are now 'restored' Apologies for the disparety in time setting but the mantel clock came without a hands setting knob. As it is one of the very first Ferranti synchronous clocks, made in 1932/33 it has the Mk1 synchronous movement and unlike all of the later clocks the hand setting knob does not screw on, but has a square section spindle protruding from the movement, in this case 1/16" (1.6mm) A/F. I have ordered a pocket watch key that is the same size and will modify this with a plastic end that will protrude thr

  24. New arrival for me - Karlskrona Hemlig (Hemlig means secret in Swedish apparently). It's obviously military inspired & the blacked out Karlskrona logo on the dial is a nice touch (it's much less obvious in real life than it appears in the photo). It's a well made & good looking, if slightly dull, watch (not much wow factor). It uses a regulated high beat (28,800bph) Sellita movement, which makes a change from the NH35's that seem to power most of the watches I own. I ordered it back in April/May & it has presumably been delayed by the virus (there haven't been many/any updates on t

  27. I have got a Piccolo winder, which is £110 from the Christopher Ward web site. I chose it primarily because it is modular: £110 is for the first one with a plug, then you can buy another one later without a plug for £90, and it will draw its power from the first one, as long as you place them side by side.

  29. @martinzx's point about resetting is a very good one. I know a few people who flipped moon phases because they were not worn that often and just that bit more an issue to reset etc etc ..... The more I think about these watches you are looking at the more its polarising between formal and sports. If you are going to wear the watch a lot then I would go Rado....

  33. So I am the third TWF owner of the Big Yellow Terner, as a result of winning the @Davey P "guess my next watch" competition. I was looking to see what I could find out about the brand and immediately saw @Always"watching" had already covered it. The other references I found were on a cruise ship forum, where several contributors bought Terner watches from the souvenir shops. TBH I think it's a bit big on my wrist. and of course the Sii movement is tiny by comparison.

  34. C65 Dartmouth comes under military section on their website. I got to say for my 1st CW, I am super impressed with the quality of the watch. Finshing is near flawless and it feels more like a £5k watch!!

  38. The only explanation I can have is that the holes were already made so they decided to cover them up as best as they knew. I'm thinking that a pro could have done a much better job but it would have cost a lot. Solder new dial feet on the other side and fill the paint job on the front side that matched the old one without damaging it. Fiddly job. Thank your watchmaker if you ever get something fixed and they do a good job. It's not an easy job.
