  4. Changed into this earlier for the day ahead, and took some snaps as it was pretty much ten past ten last night! Berli-Lyon diver, 60's I guess, Compressor cases were first used in '64 by Enicar I am told, this is fitted with a semi-quickset date Lorsa Cal. P75. I was thinking to sell it, but now I have put the new vintage grey G10 through the bars, I kinda like it again. It also makes a change for me to have one of the nicer examples of a watch rather than one of the tattier ones. At least until the lume drops out ... Have a blissful day. J p.s. I ju

  30. @Perlative Cernometer Sorry, 2nd attempt. I posted the above by mistake (obviously!) and took too long to complete my reply (36 minutes I think). Are you saying that every single movement in a Swiss made watch is individually tested, thousands and thousands of them, when COSC certification is being sought and this is ongoing throughout the life of a particular model? That's quite a task. You explain ISO far better than I ever could and whilst I'm extremely cynical about it for things like office management processes, I can see benefits in technical areas. I wasn't aware there

  31. So as normal I started of with 'no more watches blah blah blah' then I saw this: Brought from Jura watches after some negotiations got it for great price. Only got to wait a week or so....

  36. Hi I have a watch that says Sportsmatic on the caseback and movement yet not on the dial!! I've not seen one where the text on the caseback goes around the edge before, At least none of my other Seiko's have this! Cheers, John

  37. I hope I'm the only one here let down again. When "Samuels" sale started, sometime before Christmas, I looked every day until the Citizen Bullhead appeared as a sale item. I signed up for their newsletter to get an extra 10% off. Ordered the watch which was showing in stock on line, added the 10% off code, tried to pay for it when the system then stated it was "not available". A couple of days later I tried again, as it was showing in stock, only to hit the same problem. I contacted "customer services" and was told the watch was only available from their stores. There are no stores left i

  38. Totally the other way round! COSC is an independent body and each individual movement which is COSC certified is submitted to them for testing and issued with a certificate. Presumably the movements which don't make the grade are either regulated until they are within tolerances, or used in a non-chronometer watch. ISO on the other hand are a body which just lay down sets of standards for organisations to work to and don't do certification at all. Industries where the ISO is used as a statutory framework will have their own regulatory bodies, and in other areas there are independent certifyin

  40. Once upon a time I would have agreed with you on the 19mm thing. They're not hard to find though and I've got a few which I don't think would look as good with 'standard' 18 or 20. 18,19,20,22 are all fine on the right watch. More than 22mm doesn't work for me and 21 is just silly - at that point you're not looking at refinement and balance so just go 22 and stop being a pain! Like @scottswatches says though, as long as you don't fit a strap that's too small... That Yema's nice.

  41. I've got two Kered-badged Sportsman Calendar watches; one gold plated and one chrome. I've also got a Sportsman with no date window. Rare than the Seiko-badged ones I think.

  44. If it's the brand name you are after rather than a particular model, maybe you could consider a used military watch which should be an investment also. This is my Hamilton Geneve 6BB
