  10. I don't usually do a change of watch, but postie has just been & this rather nice Bulova Lunar Pilot LE has just dropped through the letterbox (not literally, as the box is the size of a brick!) I read about the leather Nato (2x piece) strap the watch ships on & whilst the quality is good, I'm not a fan - Luckily I had a CNS (Sweden) Paratrooper strap here & that works better imho See what you think & feel free to applaud or boo ...

  14. Morning, One of my early steps on the road to vintage madness, today’s wearer is this Rosières auto with its 17j Felsa 690 and probably dating from around the late 1940s. Per Mikrolisk, the brand name was first registered by the Allemann family in Welschenrohr (German for Rosières) Switzerland in the 1890s. Some of these things were also imported into the States by Chase Watch Corp, with the movements of those examples being signed accordingly. Regards.

  19. Still wearing this Orient Mako XL. Very happy with it as it only loses around 1 second per day which I am impressed with, and since it is non hacking I expect it to display the correct time in approximately 10 days

  28. Gruppo Gamma Vanguard Bronze again today. Look at the patina on that case! I mentioned that I removed some patina earlier this week and, unless my mind is playing tricks on me, I can actually see the difference day to day just now. Bronze watches are a lot of fun.

  32. Had a letter from Papworth Hospital heart specialist giving me the all-clear for another 2 years, so I'm celebrating with the Tom Tom smart watch today. It has a heart rate monitor (switched off) and Bluetooth functionality, (also switched off) but the important thing is it LOOKS healthy :

  33. Good morning Vintage for me today with my 70's Camy Starjet. Edit. I've often wondered why its called a "superautomatic".. anyone know why?

  34. Maybe because they are smarter? Why give away the methods that you rely on to make money for free? There are only two secrets to making money. 1.) Don't tell everyone everything (Yes I do the occasional How To video on my channel, but I focus on the very basic things. If you don't know how to wind up a watch then you don't know, but you might look on YouTube)

  35. Hi there everyone. I decided that my vintage watch collection needed a suitable display case. I refurbished and converted an old laboratory case. The cushions fitted perfectly and it even has a drawer for all my tools. What do you all think? All the best.

  36. The list of prominent female watchmakers, decorators, dial makers, enamellers, engravers, particularly throughout the 19th, 20th century, is endless! There are some exceptional female watchmakers today, but as Scott quite rightly states, why ‘publicly give away’ skills, knowledge, that you have worked & paid for!

  38. If this watch never gets made and people lose money then I’ll be removing this section of the forum. I didn’t know that if watches are not completed then there is no protection for the buyers. It’s open to fraud and I do not want to be promoting this.

  40. Going back 20+years, I'd go on a BHI course and pay for the expertise. I don't know enough about watchmaking to be judgemental on the ability of online YouTube "watchmakers" but I know from my own field of experience that a lot of the stuff posted on YouTube can vary from poor to dangerous, and I would imagine watch repair videos will be no different. Being able to differentiate between the good and bad usually comes with experience.

  41. Been wearing this most today. I changed the strap from a rustic brown leather onto this vivid blue sharkskin. My summer strap. Earlier this week I used a little lemon juice to remove some of the three years worth of patina and instantly regretted it, mainly because I'd forgotten how pink the bronze was when it was striped back. A few days later and it's looking good again, looking forward to it developing a darker hue though.
