  1. I was searching through an old drive for some archived documents when I cam across some files of watches I once owned I don't think it will make me feel particularly clever given some of the watches I have sold, at a time watches were much cheaper but here goes! First up Breitling Cosmonaute 24-hour version of the Navitimer and a cuff from the days I had a City job! And no 710!
  2. I am old enough to remember the difference and not so old to forget I once knew the difference
  3. @scottishcammy the Olympus is a more recent machine which plays Micro-Cassettes, you need an older machine which plays Mini-Cassettes This might fit the bill https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265297550700
  4. @Tony76 It's a 7 jewel movement as stated on the dial, probably a low-cost pin lever, watch will be from the 1950's
  5. Mentor was a brand belonging to Bader Ltd, they made low-cost everyday and fashion watches, yours for example has a cheap 1 jewel movement probably late 1950's or early 1960's not much more to say other than it isn't very valuable
  6. You could keep an eye on Ebay for a watch to use as a donor movement
  7. @scottishcammy how long has the watch been dormant? Might be gummed up a bit??
  8. Thanks, these are not uncommon but most others I have seen have been in poor condition, the Indian name "Kurde" is scratched into the inside of the rear cover
  9. They were a 50th Anniversary model first introduced in 1998, they didn't make them for long, I think they stopped around 2008 or so.
  10. Easy decision for me, a 2007 Rolex Sea Dweller 16600 it would probably outlast me without a service
