  2. Morning, 34mm Swiss-made Dulux with its fancy-ish fixed lugs and looking like the 1940s. Made by Rene Ginrat of Tramelan who, whilst known to have used other movements such as Eberle (NFT) and Peseux, has powered this one with a 15j AS 1187. Regards.

  3. I've just watched Watchfinder's latest video on the Lange 1815 Tourbillon Handwerkkunst. I'm a fan of their videos...or at least I have been. This video is full of detail, great photography and narration, gushing appreciation and acclaim for the watch, of which only 30 have been made (so actually a limited edition). Actually too gushing. And this is the thing; the longer I listened, the less interested I became - the more overflowing the torrent of praise, the less I cared - until by the end, I felt I wouldn't want one if it were simply given to me. It was almost as if in

  5. It boils down to numbers sold, which will be low volume, its like a watch botherers equivalent of Clarkson and the girls when they did Top Gear, oozing with over played enthusiasm about cars most of us will never see, let alone own.

  6. I’m a complete cynic when it comes to this, I rarely watch anything like that other than maybe the very occasional link off of some watch sites I follow on Twitter. Where do they get those made of unobtainium watches from so in my mind they are probably in some way or another paid to spout their bull and I can’t believe that any serious purchaser would even bother to watch them. I reminds of all those people on breakfast telly punting the latest best thing since sliced bread or the latest fashion that you never see anybody wearing or using.

  7. I don't believe it is about showing off, as a generalisation the fabulously wealthy who can afford the type of timepieces we are discussing don't need to show off. For example the the AP Minute Repeater Supersonnerie at SF295,000 would not be recognisable as a watch of that value to all except very knowledgeable aficionados. If I was a multi-millionaire I would buy one and post it once a week in the WRUW thread

  8. Just picked up another Kered on ebay. It's an automatic with date. Movement is, as far as I can tell, a 25-jewel HB213 "Ultramatic", so it's probably from the 1960's. Case has lost its plating somewhat, but the dial has an unusual Kered logo in that it's not underlined. I only have one other Kered like that. The hands are quite unlike the other Kereds I have.

  12. I'm not trying to compete with @Jet Jetskion 'who is wearing the most rust-Tick watch'...but I think we are wear watches today that have had a tough 'paper round' I love this old watch, yes it has the face only a mother could love, but I got it for next to nothing , and no watch I own has surprised me more. Seiko 6205-8940 SELFDATER, 24 Jewel Automatic. Made August 1965. The odd thing is that I decided I liked this watch so much that I bought another one about a year later, and the serial number is different by around 200, my guess is that they were made on the same
