  1. I would send a Speedmaster to Omega
  2. Following on from a post by @Jonesinamillion back in February about "self promotion" of self-employed forum members' business / services and perhaps any services you may offer on a voluntary or gratis basis Roy sanctioned it, sorry it took so long but better late than never! So if you are self-employed feel free to promote your services in this thread
  3. I agree with @Always"watching" While the web site does say the brand was "re-established" you have to search for it. I don't like the way the web page and marketing are presented as it implies the current company has a heritage which it doesn't. For example claiming an establishment in 1892 at the top of the web page seems a bit dubious to me. I would prefer the web site and marketing to make it clearer that the name has been revived and that the watches are inspired by the original Patria company. Having said that I quite like the watch and it is one of the better crowdfunding watches I have seen
  4. It's a nice watch in a nurses style but probably not used by a nurse given the elaborate crystal design. It was probably intended primarily as a costume jewellery piece. If it was me I would take it to a watch repairer and get an estimate for a repair and ultrasonic clean of the brooch and chain. Is it valuable? Roamer is a mid tier Swiss brand but sadly, as has been mentioned above, there isn't much of a market in this type of watch. Might make a nice gift for the lady in your life if she likes quirky things.

    Today I Bought .....

    Olympus EP-16 eye cup
  6. I have a Bergeon 4932 case opening knife which works well and is of good quality, in GBP they are typically £15 to £20
  7. A relative bought a A13313161C1A1 44 mm Breitling SO Heritage chronograph in blue, having seen it in real life I was quite impressed, pictures don't do them justice in my opinion. It's the Breitling caliber 13 chronograph which is cheaper as it is is based on the well-known ETA Valjoux 7750 movement. He has an 8 inch wrist and it wears well.

    An award winning community garden, apparently it actually looks a bit better than it did, there used to be lots more junk (sorry, upcycled items)
  9. The good news is the watch is a CWC The bad news is that it has not been issued but that's not unusual as most haven't been issued, the fact the serviceman bought it himself seems to verify this I have one with exactly the same markings on the back. It still might still be tritium paint, as the half-life of tritium is only 12 years or so you lume will only be about one-quarter as bright as when it was new, however when you shine strong light / UV / sunlight on the lume it will still fluoresce but will quickly fade

    Local to me, surounded on three sides by busy roads, you would never guess
  16. I have bought and sold dozens of watches and haven't made a profit; I am happy to move it on at the price I bought it for in most instances, In a few cases (Rolex for example) where prices rocketed I would sell for more than I bought it for or if I had done a lot of work on the watch. I get pleasure from owning watches and for me it wouldn't be the same if I was doing it to make money.
  17. Nice but at 46 mm too big for my taste even if it wears a bit smaller
  18. I haven't kept many images of lost loves, but I did find these all of which I would have back in a heartbeat (along with a few on here which regularly appear!) Looking at the images I feel a bit melancholy now, thanks @Roger the Dodger just don't post a picture of the GMT-Master II Omega Speedmaster MkII with racing dial Ollech & Wajs Mirage III Omega Seamaster GMT 2534.50.00 and finally A Watchco assembled Omega Seamaster 300 which I had serviced by STS - it was immaculate
