  1. Hi Guys, Sorry about the massive delay :lol: Here are a few screenshots, some opinions would be great. At the moment I'm using a movement spacer to locate it all, but I'm not sure if I should scrap that idea and machine the case to suit the movement as it would give me more 'meat' on the case for rear fixing screws and seals. Not sure whats the best way to go though? Any advice or ideas welcome :) Also I'd be interested to hear from anyone that's used Fricker in Germany or any other case makers?
  2. Hey Andy, What happened was... I sent the watch away to be repaired, but unfortunately a replacement crown could not be sourced. So in the end I found a crown that I thought would fit (the one in the link), with the semi-approval of the repairer. However what I didn't realise was that the repairer had to modify the case (didn't tell me) to make the tube fit. Unfortunately this was done poorly by hand and made the alignment to the movement way off and then didn't come out smoothly. Also the hand mod made the case no longer waterproof. In the end I had to send the watch away again t
  3. Bloody iPad lol... Hi Andy, I'd like to keep mine as part of the saga that was getting my '29 running again. I bought mine from here... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tag-Heuer-Factory-Crown-Stainless-Steel-6-45-mm-screw-down-tube-/230697643959?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b6a6afb7#ht_988wt_922 Good luck with the fix. Tom.
  4. Just double check with a competent horologists that it will definitely fit!

  6. Probably the '29, I guess i set the Omega in a hurry.
  7. Hi Andy, A bit of a tricky one to be honest. I had to have the case re worked quite a lot. Ended up having the case reamed and had a larger diameter tube fitted. That meant that the new crown I had sourced was scrapped and a new one had to be bought. I'm not sure what it's from, but it works well. I'm afraid because of the new tube, this crown wouldn't fit in your stock case. Thanks, Tom.
  8. Hi Everyone, I just thought I'd post up the item number for the Oris Pointer-date that you all helped me identify (200739598906). I've lifted some of the text from this topic, I hope that's ok. We can see who had the closest estimate now... Thanks again for all the input. Tom.
  9. Thanks for that guys, makes sense now! I'll keep you updated with any progress I make.
  10. I’ve been toying with the idea of making my own watch for quite a while and over the holidays I decided that I wanted to go ahead with it. I’m not sure whether I want to buy a stock case or have one made to my own spec, but I’ve been drawing up the basic shape of the movement in SolidWorks. I was thinking that once I’ve got the movement down I can design a case around it. I've just got a couple of silly questions though: On the ETA drawing the fixing holes are shown with a dimensions angle that reads - 39˚ 47’ 50†I understand the 39˚, but I’m not sure what the 47’ 5
  11. Thanks for all your help guys, but he said he'll keep his shed. Cheers, Tom.
  12. Hi Everyone, My Boss was having a little rummage through his shed the other week and in a tin box he stumbled across a few watches, amongst them was this Oris Pointer Date… It’s in really good condition and is ticking over quite nicely. He’s not particularly interested in watches, but would like to know a little more about the model and its age. It’s a manual wind and measures about 34mm including its crown. A couple of questions we were hoping somebody might be able to enlighten us on are: 1. When was that watch manufactured? A quick Google seemed to suggest

    Best Photo

    Very generous indeed, the best shots on my filckr account (i think) :- Watch Related: General: (I don't want to say how many shots it took me to work that one out) Nature: (Looks like he's got a little nose!) All done with my Canon 30D and kit lens, now upgraded to a 28-135 and looking forward to taking some nice photos this winter! I'd love the Orca, need to build up my collection again. Cheers, Tom. P.S. I think that Deco watch looks great, bit like a Hamilton Ventura, but a bit more vicious looking lol.
