  2. Good Morning, new in, I will do a thread on this in the Jap. Section, because im taken aback...SDGM001 "Grand Cocktail" from the Brightz range. Its probably my last mile stone on the road to a new GS...however, i've a feeling I might either cross the rubicon and reach the great divide. Or at least arrive at point of diminishing return? Time will tell... 2014 "GC"

  14. Oris Aquis diver. This is the Hammerhead Shark limited edition, it's the same as the standard Aquis but with a blue second hand. Part of their conservation range, helping to raise money to help species on the verge of extinction.

  15. Still the revived 1980s Citizen CQ, which has been running accurately for more than 24hrs, so I think it's off life support. The dial pattern disappears in photos, depending how the light falls. The recess by the crown should have a black insert with "WR 100" on it, but most of them seem to have been lost. Bracelet is folded links with an 8mm lug, so wouldn't be easy to replace, but fortunately it's very comfortable. Liking this a lot - thanks @Iceblue

  18. Morning, This Omikron with a 21j Unitas 6325, Swiss-made and attributed to Gustave Homberger’s Fulton Watch Co of Bienne. Along with Omikron’s cute elephant, the case back is inscribed with what is thought to be a 10-year anniversary or service award from a company based in one of the countries comprising the former Yugoslavia, one of the main markets for this brand. Regards.

  21. Time for Tissot! PS If there are any advertising executives from Tissot reading this and you want to use this slogan or a version of this picture, my usual fee, plus Ts & Cs apply. These are higher than they would otherwise have been as I have a very painful arthritic attack on the middle finger of my right hand and the operation of an iThing to take this photo may well have resulted in some Bad Swears.

  23. Something from the 'cheap seats' Not too hard to see what Fossil were looking at when they picked up a pencil and drafted a design on the 'back of a fag packet' I bought it as an empty display case with no movement, a couple of damaged hands, and no strap. I like it, and the domed crystal gives a lovely distortion of the dial. Probably my new beater watch.

Horizontal precipitation so as is me penultimate day I'll wait for it to ease off abit. On the up side as i can longer can be bothered with the pointless shift hand-overs I save over half an hour and can sit here and enjoy the rain. Feckum !

  27. When it is done with taste, then they're OK, as I'm sure @yokelwill agree. Done this way it does not invade the dial.

  32. Me too. Another I find to suffer from the little man syndrome. His ban from every licensed premises in his home town (Conwy) has only recently been lifted. Banned for affray, giving it large to the husband of the woman he was having an illicit affair with. Although both were banned, the husband did have the pleasure of giving Drew a jolly good slapping! The woman, & Pritchard’s wife, both dumped him. Tells you a lot about the little man.

  34. Another thing while we are on about kickstarters. How come they think they have created something so unique and groundbreaking. Yet have no conviction to get a loan, funding, sell the house, do whatever it takes to get the watches made and have a product to sell. If it’s that good then you don’t need to take my money six months before I can have your unique product. I’m proper on one today

  35. I have no intention of putting a compulsory fee on the sales. The section is there for the benefit of regular contributing members. If people want to make a forum donation after a sale then that is up to them. There are a few members and only a few who do just come here to sell stuff. They never donate or contribute very little to the forum. I made the post to make these people aware that if I see their current posts and they are a majority of sales posts then I may decide to withdraw this service for them until they contribute more. A few of weeks ago a member who has not posted since 2010 came and put a sales ad up and then vanished again. I like to see a busy sales section but not as much as I prefer to see a busy forum. I have bought and sold more watches here than anywhere else. I could sell for more on eBay but I like to keep them in the community if I can. This does crop up now and again and I like to have a rant to get it out of my system I don’t think anyone is deliberately taking advantage but if you don’t want to contribute then don’t expect to sell here. Enuff said

  36. Just got back from a few days on the Isle of Wight attending the funeral of my lovely Father in Law, "Big Den". Needless to say Ruthie is devastated, especially given the fact that she couldn't see her Dad in his final few months during the Covid lockdown while he was in a care home. This was also hard for me, after losing my Dad just a couple of months ago, it all felt very familiar. Anyway, since this is a watch forum, I thought I'd share details of a few watches that I was allowed to take away while the family were sorting through some of his possessions (nobody in the family is remotely interested in watches, so it made sense for me to have them). I've taken a few quick photos (please excuse the DNA, but I wanted to show them "as found", prior to me cleaning them up): (1) Sekonda made in USSR automatic 25 jewels in silver, on a nice bracelet, but clasp is broken. Won't wind, and not working. (2) Ingersoll 17 jewel lever, manual wind, non-hacking, in silver with a brushed silver dial. Watch head only, so needs a strap or bracelet. Working fine and keeping good time. (3) Ramona 25 jewels Incabloc automatic, non-hacking, in gold with a cream dial. On a stretchy bracelet. Working fine and keeping good time. (4) Seiko 5 automatic, non hacking, in silver with blue dial, and day/date. Working fine and keeping good time. (5) Un-named pocket watch, silver case, with a key attached. Don't know if it works, as I've no idea how to wind or adjust it... (6) Claude Valentini quartz - Horrible, and looks ready for the bin! Ruthie will wear the gold Ramona, and I will wear the Seiko and Ingersoll. They just need a good clean, and the Ingersoll needs a strap As always, any comments welcome

  38. Pt is only $1200/oz there isn't that much in the case to justify £28k which is a 5x to 9x multiple of their usual prices Good luck to them if they can find buyers

  39. There are a lot of nutters asking silly prices for old seiko. Take a look at old king quartz and grand quartz, sarb 33 and 35 and ks hi beats and gs hi beats. So even if it doesnt become collectable if it gets hyped on yt it will get people asking fantasy prices. Like 800 for the sarb 500 for an ordinary 0853 kq or gq or a grand for a 56ks. Its been getting daft recently. Whether they are selling at the hyped prices i suspect not. Most sellers either have them in stock for years or end up sending them to bids. For eg most sarb 033 035 seem to stick at 400 ish despite the askings. Dont be conned by the asking check the sale prices. As for will the humble skx make higher and higher money? It might do 30 year from now, but i think recent memory of rrp will keep it grounded like the sarb at maybe a ton over original rrp. I think it sticks in peoples throats to be paying higher than rrp so soon in the day.

  41. I couldn't agree more. The classified section is for members, and if someone is not playing fair, sticking to the rules then they don't deserve to be on here.

  42. I have the SPB143 and I love it. The quality is certainly at the right level for the price and the bracelet is good and comfortable too. Some online moan about the clasp but I think they just don't want to be positive about a Seiko bracelet. I connected with it instantly and it's probably the purest idea of a dive watch I have in my collection (and I have a fair few) and it would probably be my one watch. It's also a strap monster. On its bracelet most of the time but stunning on a nato
