  5. Morning, This Old England today, probably 1960s and thought to have been by Accurist but totally unlike their unisex Swinging ‘60s fashion range of the same name introduced in the mid-60s. Those “flower-power” models were sported by fashionistas and pop stars of the day and were usually driven by a 1j EB 8800 and largely designed to be disposable, so are now considered to be quite collectable. However, today’s effort runs on a 17j FHF/ST 96-4 and whilst it’s possible that the original Old England range also included some conventionally-styled watches, I’ve yet to see another one by way of confirmation. Regards.

  7. Civilian Sturmanskie looking moody. Just noticed the bezel of centre, so for anyone having palpitations, calm down, calm down ... The semi quick-set date on these is a pain, so I usually look for one with a date in the recent past, half of my 3133 chronos were showing the 8th! This one was on the third, so got the nod for today. HAGD They are noisy! During lockdown one I went exploring near our local river and heard the racket, was looking around for something the size of a cuckoo and couldn't believe it was the wrens.

  11. So you know when you've resolved to wear everything in your collection once and you get towards the end and you're looking at the shelf thinking "well, I've got to do this sometime".. Genuine rose gold coloured Sekonda with a fully skeletonised fake plastic dial giving teasing glimpses of the cheap nasty Miyota quartz within. It was a present OK.

  16. Tissot Le Locle with broad bean flowers. This was my second choice photo: there's a wren making a devil of a noise in the holly tree behind me but the link to Google Photos didn't want to play the video sound track.

  19. I intended to take a photo while out in the sun, but forgot, so an indoor shot will have to do. Lovely linen dialed Mondaine with 25J FHF 90-5, which I must say I'm unexpectedly impressed by.

  22. Escaped from hospital (at least temporarily ) -- yeah. Last day of wearing the faithful Dornie for a while -- but, it has done exactly fifty consecutive days, so not bad.

  30. I wore a dive watch to work once and got a lot of funny looks. But that could have been because of the wetsuit and flippers.

  32. Having a mini lathe means making things -& the photo shows a few of these things. Some have been successful & some not so successful. Successes include the Guardian's of the Galaxy stereo knobs & the pool ball screwdrivers. Less successful are the spirit lamp (the blue thing) & the pool ball pots. I have to say that I do like the pots but I still haven't really found a use for them. I've used one to keep mains fuses in but thats about it really. Not included in the photo are the various gear knobs I've made (& scrapped) & the things I've given away as presents (pots & screwdrivers mainly), the pool ball coat hooks (shown these before) & the feet I've made for a bathroom storage unit (from pool balls). Happy to answer any questions you may have

  33. Our roads are full of people driving cars worth £20,000 - £50,000 ... I would dare to suggest they should be more worried than anyone wearing a vintage Breitling. Watches get damaged stolen much less frequently than cars.

  34. Fan of the brand , but not a fan of the new releases today.... I watched the video where the CEO pretends to go back in time etc etc.... Just thought it was cheesy and the watches are a bit too. Another wasted opportunity for Breitling I fear.

  35. Belstaff don't make jackets big enough for "Tubby", they have their image to protect. If you see a tubby in a Belstaff, then it's a fake.

  36. Mine has Tripled actually. I don't keep it in a safe though, I wear it. There are lots of different "Datora" Breitlings. I've never determined for sure what "Datora" means other than that I think they should all have some sort of calculating/computational function, like a tachymeter / UPH scale/bezel. The term has nothing to do with the date function so far as I know. Anyway, I prefer my sensibly-sized late 60's / early 70's "Surfboard" Datora to the fat Triple Calendar re-issue.

  37. Divers alarums and excursions', she read, uncertainly. 'That means lots of terrible happenings, said Magrat. 'You always put that in plays.' Alarums and what?', said Nanny Ogg, who hadn't been listening. Excursions', said Magrat patienly. Oh.' Nanny Ogg brightened a bit. 'The seaside would be nice,' she said. Oh do shut up, Gytha,' said Granny Weatherwax. 'They're not for you. They're only for divers, like it says. Probably so they can recover from all them alarums. Terry Pratchett - Wyrd Sisters

  40. You have 1 nice watch (blue), 1 decent watch (white), and 3 beaters. So it's time you get a decent black dial watch. What about a Hamilton khaki?

  43. I spent a couple of hours tiding up the garage yesterday (so it looks worse that when i started) and whilst going through a box on old stuff, i found i watch I wore about 15 years ago and had completely forgotten about. I effectively became a watch guy on my wedding day, 10 years ago. Prior to then I owned watches one at a time, generally letting a strap break and getting another watch some time after. However about 11 years ago I bought myself an Accurist Quartz Chrono F1 Special Edition which I loved. On my wedding day, my wife gave me an Emporio Armani Sports watch which was at that time, the nicest and most expensive watch I'd owned and it was also the first time i found myself owning 2 watches that I wanted to give wrist time to. Since I became quickly comfortable with the consept of having more than 1 watch, the floodgates opened which seemingly just get wider. Prior to yesterday, I have 2 watches from before that point however yesterday's box also revealed this sitting strapless at the bottom of it: This is the Sekonda 03780. It looks like Sekonda updated this model until recent years with some design updates. When I dug it out of the box, the battery was dead but somehow hadn't leaked so a new one went in and it fired up straight away. The case has some minor scratches and dings and the crystal has some specks on the inside but no scratches. The lugs are a whopping 24mm so i stuck it on this (not a) James Bond nato and a 24mm is on the way from Amazon. I don't go for square cases so i'm enjoying the novelty of giving this some wrist time after a 15 year gap. What I really like is the thought that when this fell off my wrist in around 2005, it left a guy that liked watches but that's pretty much where it ended. Now it's back the same guy who is in a different world regarding watches with a collection some way from the thoughts of a guy in his 20's throwing £50 down on a Sekonda...

  44. I don't mind a bezel, it's the oversized hands and blobby dials I don't like. I sometimes see dive watches by the vintage brands I'm interested in, but a bezel and ATM rating always massively inflates the price, for what is otherwise a pretty ordinary watch.
