  1. Polerouter Sub is gettin wrist time today...
  2. Had to put my jacket on first, then my newest chronometer...So once I buckle up the leather strap, how am I supposed to tell what time it is? Pretty soon I'll have a left arm the HULK would be proud of...
  3. Yes vinn, Unfortunately, my wants are already well past getting out of hand!
  4. This is my only one vinn. My older brother used to have some along with various deck watches but this is my first. I couldn't pass it up! Got a handheld Sestrel compass & a Sestrel sextant from the same chap along with a couple Walker ship's logs among other stuff.
  5. Couldn't pass this pair up for £175 now could I? Russian ship's Chronometer & barometer from the same ship.. Ticking away nicely. Love that wind indicator.
  6. Thanks for posting the video Roger. Interesting indeed. What he said makes sense, despite what Seiko Cda told me. I think I'll run the chronos on mine when I use them. Now to work out which category my new (1968) Omega chrono is... Cheers
  7. Hi WRENCH, I decided to take a quick search. I am not a watchmaker but I believe it is a General Watch Co. movement. They later became Helvetia. Hope this helps, Roddy
  8. Your watch looks great Angus. Roger the Dodger, that's interesting to read what you said about keeping the chrono running . I had mine serviced by Seiko Canada once & I remember them saying not to keep it running. (Of course this was the same crowd that returned my watch after their service with the bracelet short a couple links & with a huge aftermarket crown that looks like it belongs on a dive watch. There was nothing wrong with my original crown by the way!) Since then I generally leave all of my chronos stopped at 12, though I do like to to see the sweeps actually sweeping... I suppose now I'll have to reconsider. I'll ask the retired watchmaker I bought my Seamaster off whether he thinks I should or shouldn't leave the chron running...
  9. Omega Bracelet number is 1116 - the end links are 548. I am looking for the complete bracelet or at least the end links.
  10. I am guessing, the same company made mine & the case back on the watch WRENCH found on eBay However the case shape is different and the bezel and the other one I had or have, was or is not a Sous Marine.
  11. There are many vintage dive watches but I have yet to find the same case... The case appears to be new old stock to me The bezel is bi-directional - doesn't seem to have a click... The inside of caseback says 80111 - nothing else Here is the top view... Here is a side view...
  12. I have been Googling and have not found my watch. I searched fleabay just now for yours WRENCH & spotted the white gloves.... Sorry to inform you, but that is not it. It's close but no cigar! The case & bezel are wrong. I guess I am going to have to offer up pics of the case later.
  13. I'm dying to know what make it is now WRENCH, but what's with the white gloves?
  14. Well done WRENCH but how did you get my watch? Now a pic frae the other side...
  15. Ok chaps, here's the thing... I am reasonably sure I used to have a watch with the same back... Hell, the truth be known, I may even still have it! However, I'll be damned if I can remember... The question then becomes... where is it? Scotland or Canada? And then of course which room? Which cabinet? Which drawer? Or which box? Which then of course begets the conundrum... Perhaps I may have too many watches? Ahh, but that little gem is for another day... I know SWAMBO is of the aforementioned train of thought but then SWAMBO thinks I have too many tools as well!!! Can you believe that?
