  2. Was not wearing a Sinn 103 st I had got, so decided to try and get another sword hand Omega. My previous electric blue was given to my son for his 21st and to be honest, missed it as a daily wearer. So after a deal, this arrived this morning Really like it and before anyone says, I have now set the time, date and GMT hand. This I feel will be a keeper. Richy.

  21. After flipping a couple recently, I’d seen this in a Jewellers in St Helier so picked up today. Discounted (old model) plus VAT free so nearly 40 percent off rrp just couldn’t resist. 41 mm wears just right on my smallish wrists. Very happy with today’s shopping trip!

  35. Yes, it has been some time! I pop in occasionally to see what's going on. Just picked up a pretty special piece and wanted to share it with you good folks. Better grab a cup of coffee) or tea in your cases), or other favorite beverage, for this one... * WARNING: A LONG POST THAT IS PIX HEAVY * Went to an invitation only watch event, a couple of weekends ago, where representatives from TAG/HEUER, Breitling and Oris, among others were on hand showcasing their product lines with their new 2021/22 introductions. When I walked in, I quickly scanned the cases and displays, looking for anything that caught my eye or for the unusual. Went to the Oris display and played with a few of those. Had my Oris Depth Gauge on my wrist (dollar for dollar - can this brand be beat?). A nice selection of Carl Bucherer (another must on my list), checked out the Breitlings, some nice new stuff!! Got to the TAG/Heuer display and was stopped dead in my tracks! At the very end of the long case... There it was... a Mikrograph!! Talk About unusual and rare! The Mikrograph is known for its history, as the first stopwatch that offered 1/100th of a second resolution. The 2016 Mikrograph 100th Anniversary wristwatch, sports a bullhead layout (with the crown and pushers placed at the 12 o’clock position) and a unique two-section case that allows the inner case to be detached from the strap, outer case and lugs. Once removed from its wrist watch configuration, the Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary watch can be mounted into the supplied desk stand or a dashboard mount for further use as a stopwatch in your Aston, Ferrari, etc. (Insert favorite sports car here)! Incidentally, interestingly enough..., this is badged as "HEUER" only! To mark the Heuer 100th anniversary of the first mechanical stopwatch to break the seconds down into 100 parts! In other words... 1/100ths (0.01) of a second. A commemorative wristwatch with several nods to the original stopwatch! Only 100 produced to honor such an incredible milestone! Their own in-house movement with 66 jewels! Yep, you read that correctly... , sixty six, 6-6 jewels! Uses the Bullhead design with the crown and pushers at the 12:00 position. It also features an onion crown as a nod to the vintage chrono, as well as the 4 beautiful steel, blued hands used for the chrono function. I believe this is a porcelain dial, but I can find no information to confirm this. I love how TAG used the old 1916 font for the numbers, etc. This particular watch was born in 2016 and is already 3-5 years old (depending on how long it took HEUER to finish the series of 100 watches), but New Old Stock! Right out of TAG's vault and brought to this show, where I "was allowed" to purchase it (it was marked, "For Display Only")! I am a pretty good customer of the store and I knew so much about this particular watch that the the rep told my AD, that I deserved it!! We negotiated a very fair price on this amazing timepiece! I saw a brief write-up on this particular model in 2016 and remember the article had mentioned that the entire run of 100 had sold out before it even went to press! At the time, I knew it was a Hopeless Grail, Fuggedaboutit!... so I gave up on it, knowing I would never get a chance at one. Then fast forward five years. Like a stopwatch encased in a module. The watch body can be used as a wristwatch when worn on the strap. Or can be removed and used as a desk "clock". Then you can take it to your sports car and mount it on the dash! Included in the impressive box are the desk mounts and a special bracket for attaching it to your dashboard! This very special limited edition from TAG/Heuer is the first mechanical watch to feature a chronograph with a central 1/100th of a second hand which makes one revolution of the dial (the outer chapter ring), for every second! The Mikrograph uses a groundbreaking in-house design evolved from TAG's famous Calibre 360. It's actually a dual movement: one part uses an escapement beating at 28,800bph (8Hz) to show the standard time and date, with a self-winding rotor; the 1/100'ths portion, runs at a whopping 360,000bph (100Hz!) and allows for the remarkable chronograph function. This section requires hand winding and has the corresponding power reserve for this 90 minute chronograph function (marked 0 - 100 which is a percentage of the 90 minute reserve). Despite the cutting-edge technology involved, the aesthetic is beautifully vintage, inspired by classic Heuer stopwatches and the brand's long involvement with motor sports. Starting with the unboxing, as I feel this is actually an important part of this package (okay, I'll admit it... I like to see a nice box for a nice watch!). This even exceeds my high standards for a nice box! This is quite stout being made of very dense wood and metal. [B]The box alone..., weighs an unbelievable, 7.2lbs[/B] (according to my very accurate bathroom scale)!! The manual, COSC Certificate, guarantee/warranty, all tags, etc. are housed in a pocket cutout, underneath the box. I love that this is the 100th Anniversary of the 1/100ths second wristwatch, that runs at 100Hz and in a Limited Edition of only 100 pieces! C O O L ! ! I hope you enjoy the following pix starting with the unboxing... The true color... The proverbial wrist shots... Those gorgeous blued chrono hands (the hour and minute hands are not, reflection)... A few more misc. shots.. That beautiful case back... I know you want to see the video of this magnificent piece working... .... ooppss can't load a video, have to use a YouTube video for you. If you turn the sound up, I believe you can actually hear this amazing mechanical movement/complication running at the insane rate of, 100Hz! Posted elsewhere in another forum, so apologies if you have seen it and wasted your time on it earlier!

  43. Hurrah! It's Friday. But not for the normal "Hurrah, its Friday" reasons. It means that I've done the last night in a bed I can only presume to have been designed by a chiropractor that was worried work might dry up. So after a final day in "Skeggy" we'll be heading home, back to my own bed, my own loo, a reasonable mobile/WiFi connection, and all my creature comforts.....not to mention 4-5 new watches that will have arrived during our holiday!

  45. One for @JayDeep....1990 Lorus 'Mickey Mouse' watch, powered by a Seiko 17 jewelled auto movement with quick set date. In 2014, I had the case refinished and re plated. It's the only 'gold' wrist watch I own. I've never seen another auto MM watch...the others all seem to be the older 'Bradley' hand winders or quartz.
