    The sales section will be closed until further notice. There are two main issues. Obviously watches are not essential when most of us on here have one already, so why risk the postal workers? Secondly RM won't be asking for signatures, so arguments about 'it never arrived' could occur which no one needs right now.

    Been a busy few weeks particularly playing host to extended family over Christmas However this gave me the opportunity to pass the begging bowel round to fund my next timepiece, which I hoped (at the time) would be a C60 APEX available at a suitable discount in potential/imminent sale ? But, this happened to cross my tracks first (pun intended) & after a couple of email exchanges a price was agreed. 2018 Omega Seamaster AT RAILMASTER. Cal: Co-Axial 8806, 35 jewel, 15,000 Gauss. Width 40mm, Length 46mm, Lug width 20mm, Height 12mm. Supplied with unused bracelet & additional new strap... Case back is secured by Omega's "Naiad Lock" system (patent pending), this allows case back to be screwed on & centered every time. The dial is brushed & gives two very distinct appearances depending on the angle viewed... On the wrist... So far I'm delighted with my choice. Thanks for looking

    While I was away, dear old @Davey P (Hey!...less of the 'old', I hear you cry! ) posted that he had received a package of watches from his B-I-L and kindly offered them up on here. I was lucky enough to be sent one... a Casio Illuminator which looked very interesting. So you can imagine my delight when as soon as I got home yesterday, there was a nice padded envelope sitting on top of my pile of mail, with 'Roger the Dodger' emblazoned across the top. Inside was a carefully wrapped box containing the watch. It looked lovely...typical vintage (probably 20 years +) Casio, and hardly any marks on it and although a bit tight on my stupidly large 8" wrist, I could get the clasp fastened. However, as I had been travelling all day, and feeling a little 'cream crackered', I put it aside until this morning...when the fun started. (I will move this thread to the watchmaking section later) The watch, and Dave's kind note... Dave had asked me if I wanted him to change the battery, as the watch was, to all intents and purposes, dead, but as he had already made such a generous gesture, I didn't think it fair to impose any more. I set about removing the caseback. Once open, it was clear this wasn't the normal 1.5v button cell, but a 3v lithium one. Luckily, there was no leakage from the old cell and everything looked clean. The cell was a CR 2025 and a rummage through my battery box found a spare one. BTW, a little bit of useless info if you didn't already know. The code on a Lithium cell refers to its physical size. The first two digits are the diameter in mm, and the second two are the depth or thickness in 10ths of a mm. So a 2025 cell is 20mm in diameter and 25 10ths of a mm (or by moving the decimal point one place to the left, 2.5mm) thick. The +ve of the battery was shorted to the AC terminal.... The rubber gasket was greased and the back screwed on... ....and now for the moment of truth...will it fire up????? Yes!!!!! Gettin! Not what I was expecting, but a rather unusual reverse LCD display. As is usual with Casio modules, it was pretty easy to set the time and date etc. Once I knew it was working, I went to town cosmetically. The bracelet went through the ultrasound machine, and the crystal was polished with Polywatch to remove the faintest of lines and make it shine. The bracelet was brushed with a Scotchbrite and reassembled. Finally, some posing shots of this lovely little watch... Oh, and I forgot to mention the subtle green backlight that comes on when the 'Light' button is pressed...There is also the usual countdown timer, stopwatch and alarm, which not only beeps, but vibrates, too. And of course, the wrist shot. Many, many thanks, Dave... I owe you one, mate. I know you were as excited as me to see if this still worked, so I hope you are pleased with the result, too. Davey, being the generous chap he is, wouldn't take any remuneration for this watch so a donation towards the forum upkeep has been made in his name.

    Dug this out of the bottom of the pile this morning. Not worn it for a very long time as my wrists were too large for the bracelet (boxes were left in UK when I came here): Omega and Rolex missed a trick when Zenith decided to sponsor the Red Bull jump when Felix Baumgartner decided to jump from the edge of space. He was wearing this model during the experiment. Omega could have milked the space theme even further but perhaps they were scared of the experiment going wrong.

    ...for me anyway! Like most of us viewing, purchasing timepieces has certainly been problematic under current restrictions. For one who likes seeing, handling watches in the flesh, conversing with dealers/sellers, I had pretty much put my foraging on hold. Even discussions regarding new (modern) pieces are currently suspended until viewing access is permitted. However, a particular timepiece piqued my interest. It was being offered by a charming young man who was doing some dealing to fund his way through watchmaking school. After some pleasant exchanges, along with an assurance that I could return the item if not fully satisfied, a deal was struck! 1929 9k Rotherham & Son (Coventry). Swiss 15 jewel lever movement (ebauche), finished, regulated, & cased by Rotherhams. Dedication to inner dust cover... Settled the itch for a bit Thanks for looking.

    Omega Speedmaster 50th anniversary Finally getting to wear this again; not seen it since September 2018. Friend kindly brought it with her along with all my watch boxes. Amazing timepiece and an even more impressive hand finished wooden box which weighs around 5kg. The toolkit is handy and the screwdriver is torqued so its impossible to overtighten the screws in the bracelet. Being manual wind it makes you interact with the watch instead of letting an automatic look after itself on a winder.
