  1. Paul of course I didnt buy those that I would otherwise have not admitted owning The Sugarbabes ... yeah ... its crap!!! But ist there ..... lol ... and Don Williams ... and some others .... even though all they do is collect dust ... still I have to have some girlie records in case I get lucky
  2. Buy a smaller house and get the SM300 as well !!!! Its on my dream list - but a £800 - £1000 for a vintage is heavy going ... never mind there is always tonights lottery
  3. Metal Andy - I recently acquires a SS-18 it runs very well and is a great timekeeper - I will be suprised if you have any other problems. Working in Russia as I do from time to time I would say that the only issue they have is that quality control is not as tight as it is in the west.
  4. I have just read the latest on the Dreadnaught Jauques Etoile threads on TZ-UK boy is it getting tense ... I wonder what effect it will have on the relationship with Fricker? Especially considering Eddie's pipeline of projects.
  5. Raketakat I have mine listed on an excel spreadsheet, (so I copied and pasted) a mate of mine had over 500 CD's stolen - trouble was he had a tough job convincing the insurance company that he had so many (they stole his CD racks as well so he didnt even have the empty racks to show). They paid for 300 ... then he couldnt remember what he had when he came to replace them! Glad you like them - took me 15 years to get this far
  6. Stan he is a reputable seller in the States, there are so many fakes of this model around that I do worry, however because there are so many fakes there are some good web sites comparing fakes with genuine, which has helped. This one does look genuine late 1950's, and the dealer does have a returns policy. I keep telling myself it isnt worth it ... if I bought it I would have to sell watches to justify it. I keep hoping he sells it before I make my mind up
  7. My themed collection is 24 hour and GMT watches I need at least two time zones ... at least thats what I tell myself. My favourites are the Glycine models. I also like basic military watches like the G10 and non-issue watches that are used by the military, I would love a Military Seamaster 300 ... I dream on. I have a SMP 300 and like other dive watches like the O&W M6, PRS, and CWC but havent got any of them I have only got one mechanical chrongraph (SB1903) I havent really seen another one that I like (and could afford).... forgot I also have a Poljot SS-18 - more because its unusual than because its a chrongraph. I aslo think I will continue with RLT and PRS limited editions, theyb are good watches and pretty unique, got a PRS CAF and a RLT diver reserved. Got some electrics recently - i like them - I would consider more but most are too small for my liking, Same goes for most vintage watches ... I like them but they are too small. I have a posh watch ... that I wear for best ... so it doesnt get worn that often My collection also includes a sprinkling of quartz watches, if quartz is approprite for the watch then I have no problem. A bit rambling ... but you get my drift ?
  8. I have been looking for this original model Glycine Airman for the last 7 months, I have found two in this time, the first one didnt quite look right but this one does (or at least the three photos I have seen of it). I know it is very collectable and quite rare these days .... but $1000 plus shipping plus duty As much as I want it ... and I want it bad .... I cant do it ...

    Two Lights.

    Good photo Stan - done well with the lighting - have you polished the mesh?
  10. Did you spot the ones that I didnt buy
  11. something about Jaques Etoile cloning the DN - creating a sort of DN Lite, called Atlantis ... havent really followed it much ... Eddie seems a bit hacked off.

  13. I have just watched the BBC's "Top of the Pops" programme - guess what is number one? ... give up? .... "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends" by those megastars "Sam and Mark" (some fame academy rejects). Not only was this rendition of the Beatles classic worse than you would hear in a Karaoke bar I doubt if the kids buying the single actually know it was by the Beatles. The funny thing about the many covered songs these days is that the original artist is never mentioned. Ten years ago you would have heard "Here are Sam and Mark with the Beatles classic I get by ... etc ... etc". Now you get "Here are Sam and Mark with their Number One ... I get by etc ... etc ...". Well as for the rest of TOTP's it was so bad that Peter Andre's re-relase of his 1996 "Mysterious Girl" was the best song on the show!!! I know there was a lot of crap in the 70's and 80's (especially the 80's) but there was that 5 to 10% of the charts that was really good.
  14. R - I have a 8.25" wrist and found the mesh OK on a 42mm lug - lug watch, they are a good size, probably do up to 8.5" comfortably.
  15. That's one of the nicest I have seen Fred
  16. Looks dangerous - what does it actually do?
  17. If you like it buy it - mind you - you could get a gold plated Roamer for £85 ;)
  18. could be Stan I think "anfibio" means "amphibian" in Italian and Spanish. I suppose amphibians are water resistant not waterproof!
  19. Does anyone know when the nylon NATO was introduced? And what did the forces use on issued watches before the NATO. Leather? canvas? was there a specification?
  20. Stan it was Rhodesia post the 1966 UDI from Britain
  21. RA does mean Rhodesian Army - Roamer's were used mainly in the 1970's and would have seen action in the Bush War. I have also found out that a watch make called "Zaigor" was issued in the 1960's a mere 30mm in diameter.
  22. I read somewhere that Roamer made watches for the Rhodesian army and airforce in the 1970's. I have come across a handwound Roamer in the style of the CWC 1970's military watch. On the back thee is a number preceded by the letters "RA" is this Rhodesian Army I wonder? As far as I know they were never issued to the British military. Has anyone got any information on these watches?
