  2. Morning, German-made Junghans Trilastic with its 17j J84/S, a movement which was produced from 1955 until 1967, today’s being date-coded for May 1957. The anti-shock device is Junghans own system and the term “Trilastic” refers only to their models which also have the entire movement braced within the case at three separate points around the circumference. Regards.

  17. Obviously it will have to be the new incoming from yesterday for me today: Not sure I will wear this one very often, the hands are a bit tricky to see against the white dial in certain light, due to my poor eyesight. However, it is a lovely looking thing on the wrist, so that makes up for it!

  24. I'm not trying to knock Rolex watches, the watches are great, I've had hundreds. It's the business practices that I don't like. I feel they are praying on human nature where something becomes more valuable if you cant have it. I just wonder how many of these new watches that they actually allow customers to buy are actually kept and worn for any amount of time before cashing in. It does not seem to be about the watches anymore which to me I find very sad, they are just an object of value to some.

  26. As I was following up on Albert Kenel’s “Lion” brands, I also came across “Armida”. I know several members here have modern Armida watches, so perhaps it would be interesting to know where that name originated and how its history developed. For these investigations, I like to go back, as far as possible, to original documents. Luckily, a mass of historical commercial information on Swiss watchmakers is available online. A search of the Swiss Commercial Register reveals that “ARMIDA” was registered in March 1899 by the watchmaker Ernest Jacquat of Villars sur Fontenais, trading as “E. Jacq

  27. At a cost of approx. 267 quid, I thought, why not? I have been on the lookout for a yellow dial that appeals to me for some time and this one certainly does. And as it comes with a hardened titanium case and bracelet, which will be a first for me, a spare rubber strap and free shipping to Thailand, I thought to myself, just treat yourself! Other dial colours are white, gray and navy. The latter being very tempting. Delivery scheduled for May/June 21.

  30. This is the whole thing, but it's not just watches. Television as well as the internet is as much to blame as is human greed. Apparently there is some new program about the Royal Family, which has hiked the price of old Barbour jackets. And of course Bargain Hunt, although I do believe Viz did aptly rename the second part of it.

  33. Just received this lovely Pagani Design chrono from @greasemonk It came supplied as watch head only, and the only strap I could find in my spares box was black leather with white stitching, which actually doesn't look too bad (it's not as shiny in real life as it looks in the photos). I might switch to black rubber sometime, but it's fine for now. The watch is slightly smaller than my usual gigantic types, and to be honest that's probably not a bad thing. It sits nicely on the wrist, and appears to be really well made. I can't even pretend to have any idea what a bleedin' Mecaqua

  36. Yes, they certainly are....but very nice! Don’t beat yourself up too much about it, all part of the learning, enjoyment, of timepieces & horology. Have bought plenty of duffers in my time & have (hopefully) learnt from the experience. You never stop learning....everyday is a school day!

  37. Your clock is a mantel clock that chimes the hours and is rather difficult to identify in terms of a maker/producer. This sort of clock, with its Art Deco style wooden case, was made is vast quantities in Britain and on the Continent from the late 1920s through to the early 1950s, and I would guess that your example sits in about the middle of that period. The decoration inside the clock where the chiming spring is screwed in might be identifiable, and an expert examination might also tell us who manufactured the movement and when. Germany would be my guess at a country of origin for your cloc
