  14. Morning, 1940s Ardath with a 15j FEF 190. Haven’t yet discovered the connection, if any, between this and watches branded as “New-Ardath” from the same period. Regards.

  21. Good morning Old photo (I think I should set up some glamor shots of my favourite watches little project maybe) Vintage Ricoh for me today, I don't know much about it other than it doesn't function very well. Is Ricoh pronounced 'reek-oh' or 'Ry-cogh' or some other stranger way? Anyway.. HAGD

  22. Well, and I’m the idiot! I saw this and the date never registered with me. So I went out wearing my Christopher Ward Trident Diver and have been out all day. Equilibrium is now restored, and it IS July 20th.

  24. Right watch, wrong date...story of my life. Seiko 7T32...always nice to have one that works since these movements are a complete pain in the butt A love / hate relationship with 7T32's ...love them when they work, love to hate them when they don't. Have a great day guys, and remember plenty of 'sunscreen'

  26. Finally, today my second experiment with Chrono24 landed. I ordered a new Glashütte Original Panomatic Lunar from a London "grey dealer" called Watches World (watchesworld.com). As this is a thread about the C24 experience, I'll cover that before showing you (briefly) the watch. With one slight wrinkle, the WW experience was all I could wish for. The price was very competitive (and used C24 "Trusted Checkout"). Communication was good, and helpful -- all queries were answered very promptly, and they unfailingly came back to me when they said they would. The watch turned up with DHL nicely and safely packaged. The watch was as specified, and everything I would expect was there -- including a fully filled out and stamped warranty card from what appears to be a GO AD in Paris. Initial checks indicate that the watch is functioning as one would expect (i.e. Panoramadate and moon-phase operating). The slight wrinkle was timing. WW initially quoted 4-6 weeks. I told them to cancel the order as I thought that too long. They said they thought they could do it in 3-4 weeks, so I let the order run. In the end, delivery was four and a half weeks. Apparently, C24 dealers are supposed to own the pieces they offer for sale -- but it doesn't take any intelligence to understand that a small company like WW could not possibly own all the watches they offer on their website and through C24. As I fully understand the necessity of working capital control, that didn't bother me -- but, for a while, I was unconvinced that they even knew where they could source the piece. They did, however, and on my evidence to date, I would happily use WW again (though probably still through C24). Diver fanatics can cease reading here, as the Panomatic is anything but a sports watch. Even worse, this one is green. It is however, my first green watch, and my first micro-rotor automatic. The obligatory pics . . . .

  28. A few security methods for extra safety. Do not use bank transfers unless you know and trust the seller. Check the sellers feedback, posting history and length of membership Get a phone number, message the number and get a reply to confirm it is correct, and obtain an address, get them to send you an image of driving licence to prove address and identity. If it is an expensive item then meet in person or use a safe method of payment, PayPal etc.

  31. The Armida A1 today. Forced the patina a little more with some ammonia, couple of boiled eggs. It’s starting to take on a silver huge. Paired up with a khaki seatbelt nato from Cousins. Have a good day everyone.

  32. The streak continues. Up first, a very cheap automatic from James McCabe to fill a spot in the new box. The box it came in is very nice, but the watch leaves me a little cold and flat, it's just a bit boring. The quality is OK, certainly for the price I paid, but rrp is £235 and that seems a little steep given the overall feel especially the bracelet which is not seven separate peices across, the 4 silver are a single solid piece and the 3 gold are a second solid piece, so it doesn't move and shape as it looks like it should. Probably a bit to 'old man' for the kids to receive so probably going back on Ebay once the boxes are filled to start funding upgrades. The second of today's arrivals was from our very own @it'salivejim, the second purchase I have made from the great man (communications, packaging and delivery times excellent, so if you are looking at his Glycine listing but nervous in light of recent events, don't be, you're in safe hands with John). I've wanted a skin diver for a long time, but the ones I've seen and liked on ebay look good on a thumbnail and then you open the pictures in the advert to see a watch that's had a hard life. That has its own beauty, but I wanted one that looked like it has suffered less abuse than its new owner, not more. Step forward John's Wolbrook Skin Diver WT.... I swapped the green Nato for a soft brown leather two peice, but I love it already. I know it is not an expensive watch and wouldn't sit proud in @Daveyboyz box in his SOTC video, but it would probably cost more to replace the cushions in his box than buy this little trinket, and it is right up my alley. Wears well, the 4 ticks per second of the meccaquartz gives a smoother second hand than a normal quartz which is always nice and the quality (at an RRP of about £170) is plenty good enough for me. Happy days. Two more due in tomorrow

  33. Re. Paypal, they only generally offer protection if done as a 'paying for goods/services' rather than the 'freinds and family' route. It means paypal fees, but offers better protection.

  35. It's worth mentioning that once you have an address, check it out on Google earth / street view, and always get a landline number if possible. I once checked out an eBay seller, who gave me the address of a London trading standards office. Cheeky *****rd.

  36. Certainly is Roger, got it on Sunday. I bought a Casio Marlin about a month ago and loved it, so I was on the look out for a Pepsi diver. Ordered from Amazon on Saturday at £202.50, checked 30 minutes later then it was £162.50! Needless to say I cancelled the first order and reordered! I've fallen in love with it!

  42. I don't object to either. In fact I like the styling of the first with its throwback numerals and Breguet hands. (Though I'd wager the bracelet betrays its price, probably rattles and pulls hairs out of your arm!) Second one has its place too. The trouble for me (and this became apparent to me in other fields of collection) is when collecting lower value pieces I end up as a hoarder with rooms full of things that hardly capture my attention. The reason for my generally gravitating to higher value stuff is not because I necessarily have quarrel with low value watches (actually in the contrary, though I am snobbish in some regards I will happily tip my hat to an Orient or other well executed budget watch) but because fewer higher value pieces hold my attention longer and also retain more of the value put into them (and though I don't buy with the intent to trade I know its an option I want available to me) Anyway congrats, both are good additions that should get some wrist time. That lume is awesome too.
