  6. Throughout this lockdown I’ve stuck solely to this (and a Fitbit to track my running). I’d best get the old watch box out of the safe. In other news, what better way to spend your 30th than lockdown in front of a PC all day! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Especially poignant as I lost the identical model, in red, in 1980, whilst chasing the 121 bus up Oldham Street in Manchester. You know how it is, you hear something drop, quick glance around and presume it was from someone else in the crowd, get on the bus, reach into your pocket for your 10p and realise your pocket knife has gone. Replacing it was damned expensive, but that's Swiss quality, m'lad, and it came with a free watch. Definitely shopping there again! 904L stainless, tritium tubes that will be good long after I am, bracelet was lovely, except for the butterfl

  9. Morning, This 1950s Cimex was bought from France and runs on a (French) 15j Cupillard/FE 233-60 with Antichoc 102. So, presumably French-made which sadly tends to discount the only two recorded makers of a “Cimex” brand in Mikrolisk, and other than having seen another example using a Jeambrun movement, I’ve found absolutely rien (or hee-haw, for all the linguists out there). Regards.

  18. New bracelet has arrived for my Strela re-issue, so first I need to move the strap on ... Well that looks quite distinguished And for the rest of the day this (took a while to get this fitted): Not giving myself 'trial by semi-quickset' - the date will have to do! Not sure about the bracelet, but it makes a change. I need to fix the lighting like they did in the sales pics! J

  20. It's flippin gorgeous. 42mm. I went with the black because 3 of my other grails will have blue dials and also because it seemed right for a classic dive watch. Love the hands, the spinning anchor logo, the red on white date window, the sloping bezel and domed crystal. Case features some seahorses which is a throwback to the original apparently. Nice big signed crown. Movement is hand winding and hacking. I really like the look of the beads of rice bracelet which is in keeping with the vintage diver aesthetic. However, it feels quite flimsy and there's no micro adjustme

  24. Both really - my Tag is on a bracelet and has been for over 25 years, as is my Armand Nicolet, my 'posh watches'. This needs to be practical and earn a crust. Thanks, the strap is 20mm CWC vintage grey.

  25. Ball make watches that are clearly unique to their style , its refreshing in today's sea of similarity.... great watch and I even love the strap [ not usually a fan of NATO straps etc etc ] ... thanks for sharing .... :-)

  30. So, I foolishly clicked on a link from here to the Ernest Jones 25% off everything sale (which wasn't true btw as about 5 brands were excluded) only to discover one of 5 "obtainable grails" was included with interest free credit as well as the discount. I mentioned this to my wife and she said it would be foolish not to get it. What a woman But what could it be? Stay tuned.

  32. Thanks for that ... I do like it, much more than many of the 'updated' versions that have been produced over the years. The original simplicity of the design of the watch was what attracted many to it regardless of the 'Moon' connection and it's that simplicity I like about early Speedmasters and this version too. I wish they hadn't reduced the number of hashes between the minute markers to two instead of four though, and I liked the original stepped sub-dials with the rings that can be seen in the early versions like mine below too but that's just nit-picking. The movement really brings

  33. Beautiful watch, great addition to your collection. I've the blue dial and really pleased with it, think it's a great looking watch, don't think pictures ever do it justice.

  35. HAH, I am just about to put my S3 BMW diesel on the market. I think the tide of change is still a ways off as it still takes a larger carbon footprint to build and run an electric car for 15 years than it does a regular car for the same time frame. As renewable power sources proliferate this will, of course change, but not in the next decade, despite what Greta dictates. I like that colour. Did you need to get it modded for your legs?

  36. Well, since I have not bought a couple of Poljot chronos (3017 and 3133), a Ball chronometer, a Certina ceramic DS First, a bronze Willard homage, nor an Elliot Brown field watch (which I did buy but then realized they had the wrong picture, so cancelled) I have decided to wear this cheery number to lift my spirits. HAGD!

  38. Morning, Today a 1950s German-made Osco by Otto Schlund, founded in 1948 before joining the Parat sales and marketing collective along with Arctos, Berg, Stowa and others. Today’s example runs on a 17j Osco Cal. 52 although they subsequently switched to using ETA movements. The brand enjoyed (by no means the correct term) a somewhat colourful later history under the stewardship of Otto’s two grandsons until insolvency in 2010. Nowadays, cheapo quartz-driven Osco watches can be bought online although these mushrooms have nothing to do with the original vintage brand and seem to be
