  1. Rotary for this Sunday. I guess this must date from the '60s, '70s.

  4. Here's to the single non network accurate time keeping device in my house. Squale 1521 On second thought, that may not be right as I'm sure there's a few quartz efforts that haven't been worn or set since before last October...

  15. My Tag-er Woods Pro golf watch. I don't play golf... Got it out of the box to change the time and saw it need a new battery, so it's out with the tiny screwdriver again!

  16. It's that day of the year when one goes around the house changing all the clocks. It crossed my mind that there are people on here with collections so enormous that this job must take them the best part of a week...

  18. Morning, This 1940s Ogival auto with its 17j AS 1250 bumper in a Taubert-style case. Made by René Brand of La Chaux-de-Fonds and here featuring a repoussé wordmark logo on the metal dial, but not done particularly carefully judging by the separation of the “O” from the rest of the word. Also missing their trademark Fisk/Fish emblem, so presumably a replacement dial but clearly from decades ago, and I have to wonder just how bad the original had become for this bodged job to be considered better. Regards.

  24. I am getting through a few watches today, back from fixing a couple of my son's watches - lost a threaded pin from the Zelos bracelet so replaced that and gave it a smidge of thread locker, and re-calibrated the chrono hands on the Squale diver, ETA 251.262. A bit wistful seeing them again ha ha ha. But gave me the opportunity to retrieve this 20mm rubber strap - he just likes his bracelets! Came off an old Timex I don't normally go silver / white hands on white dial, but I fell for this one. J

  25. Had to be this one to celebrate seeing the old fella creaking out onto the grid for another season of Moto GP. Pic taken at 11.00 obviously, just before I remembered.....

  27. 1914 Elgin 'Trench Watch' Don't know if this watch ever saw a trench, but if it did the dial and hands were changed back to original spec after any action it saw. Made in 1914, but an inscription on the back for 1918, my guess...and it is a guess, is that this watch did see action and the inscription was put on there when it got back home after the war. Either way, I think it's a beautiful, and nobody decorated their movements quite as well as Waltham, and Elgin. Hope you're having a great Sunday guys!

  28. I would like to congratulate all the people who have watches that run 19.7260273973 seconds fast every day. There is absolutely no need for you to set your timepiece an hour forwards. You are able to breathe a sigh of relief as that wonderful piece of engineering catches up to standard time tonight. Smile as everyone scrambles to set their watches forward and know that your piece has a built in pre summertime sense of destination. Your piece is technically more accurate than everyone else's and has now fulfilled its destiny.

  29. If we are invaded by Aliens, those that where watches on their left wrist will all be selected to interbreed to become a new hybrid super species, those that wear on the right will be transported to a mining colony in Alpha Centauri.

  31. I've got quite a few watches that haven't been worn since the last time the clocks changed... Looking forward to spending an hour or two fannying about changing them all to BST, including the dates which are sometimes quite a few days out, because I can't see most of them without my reading glasses on

  37. So I wound the Seiko up and set the date, no mean feat after the usual Sunday skinfull of V&RB's As an asides the Albanians look a bit handy, not sure you'd want to mess with a couple of them outside the ground, the look like extras from a Liam Neeson "Taken" film.

  40. I checked on a watch I degreased the hairspring on yesterday as it was running fast, and it was only 3 minutes out this morning. Sadly I hadn't adjusted it for BST, so it is 63 minutes fast
