  4. This GPS synchronised watch was a bargain, because it was correct to the second, but 4 days out! Came from cash converters. In Peckham, probably. Thanks to the manual, it is now perfectly re-calibrated, and does a 'time only' synch in a couple of seconds. If you have changed time zones it can do a geo-location synch too, which takes only a short while longer. I am told the rechargeable battery is jolly big. Unlike the Rugby (I can't remember Anthorn or wherever) time signal, the GPS signal does not contain daylight saving offset information, but there is an indicator on the

  10. Morning, This Elgin Sportsman today, probably dating to around the mid ‘60s and shortly before the demise of the original Elgin company. It came from the “budget” end of their range and is powered by one of their imported 17j movements, in this case the UTC (Seiko) 29 although marked as Elgin’s M-112 calibre. Regards.

  15. I mentioned yesterday that I got a Seiko 5 in a job lot of watches that appeared to be pristine, it doesn't even look as though it has been worn. The clasp was so tight and sharp (as are all of the bracelet edges), that I've had to polish the edges to make it a bit smoother to fasten. We've shortened the bracelet to fit today and I wore it to my Covid jab today - first time I've been out in months. I've tried to photograph it to show just how clean it is - the engraving of the serial no. etc on the back still feels sharp. Not bad for a 28 year old watch - manufactured July 1993 - verif

  19. Done that too... Once you find tbe level of finish / quality that you like, it's not easy to own anything lesser, there are if course exception to this but as a general rule I find this to be true.

  20. Cheers Scott, I'll pass on the advice. I think he has the (basic) theory of watch movements and how they work but not the detail so thought it might have been useful to see the individual parts in the cheaper watches he will likely be handling regularly. The book will make a handy "congratulations" gift

  21. I like them too, quite a few variants so i`d have to have good browse before deciding...type of strap, dial colour etc etc, they do a blue dial one, thats nice, thing is with me though i get set on something and then i see something else that totally throws me.

  22. Sold a watch, this watch on the forum 12 months ago and almost instantly regretted it. Contacted the buyer recently to see if they fancied selling it back and very kindly they agreed to let me have it back at the same very fair price I released it. What a guy, wont name them but thanks! Anyone else been so stupid? Maybe the ultimate outdoors beater?... light, strong, sapphire, titanium, great lume, screw down crown, endless power, legible, kevlar strap, pretty too! And I love the metal buckle holes and keeper.

  23. As Roy said, basically it can be many things!! Your looking at a car engine really, not only does all the pivots have to be clean and lubricated, but then it has to be "in time" with certain sequence of events need to be carried out, a myriad of levers and wheels all working in harmony to get the clock ready to chime, then to make the clock chime, then also be self correcting in-case someone advances the hands without letting it chime first I would sit it on the mantel piece and let it tick for an hour and see if it corrects itself and start chiming, failing that it needs to go to a

  27. Can be so many things. is the lever working? When it’s chime o’clock do the wheels start whirring? When was it last cleaned and oiled? The hammers look locked?

  30. My honest advice is do not strip a watch. The tools he will be using will be far better quality than anything at home (unless he has already spent a fortune) and method and technique will be different. No point learning bad habits. Plus stripping and rebuilding a cheap watch is harder than on a quality watch - like taking apart a Renault or a Mercedes. If he wants to practice then holding a loupe in his eyesocket is a skill, and moving a pile of rice using tweezers into lines will help refine his fine motor skills. Both will be very useful. And if he can get a copy of George Daniels

  33. I have a few Camy's now, getting in quick before they take off as the next make to become collectable.... A couple of 'divers' A rather nice 'Kings Club' in absolute mint condition... The 'Bow Tie' cased one in my earlier post.... A 'Silver Cloud'... A 'Jumbo Jet'..... And this rather quirky, squarish cased offering.... Which came complete with box.. though I've changed the strap for a nice genuine croc one as the original one was looking a bit tired........ All together...... And a few contemporary adver
