  1. I have never managed to get on with solar powered watches, don't ask me why because I couldn't give you an answer! Russian and Soviet era watches on the other hand are still relatively cheap and a lot of fun
  2. If you think about it the grail was sought after but never obtained - on that basis maybe the Omega Seamaster GMT I bought wasn't a grail And my grail was, and still is. an Audermars Piguet Royal Oak - sought after but out of reach
  3. Guitars moved to their own guitar grail topic
  4. They have been linked for the last 20 years or so, underlying owners or partners?
  5. Google is very useful, for example a couple of minutes searching I found that Richard Legrande is a Singapore registered company founded in 2016, San Martin is a Chinese company based in Dongguan and Bernard H Mayer is owned by Mayer's Mint GmbH who started making watches in 2006 prior to which they made medals, coins and pocket watch cases
  6. Not for me, I like a compass bezel but not that one As far as Land watches go I had a SBDX007 a rather foolishly sold it, big mistake, it's the best they made
  7. Funnily enough I think it works on this watch, a classic Breitling
  8. Stop threatening forum members or I will give you a warning!
  9. My view, replace the crystal, sort out the crown, get it serviced, take off the original bracelet and put it somewhere safe and buy an uncle Seiko. That way it will still be your grandfather's watch
  10. Yes, it was an Omega Seamaster GMT 168.1613 which was one of the watches produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Seamaster. I think @Roy sourced it for me, I wish I had kept it.
  11. I like the Museum Classic 40mm with the minimalist face and some of the other variants seem OK, I generally agree with @antjrice and find their sports models out of place, but perhaps their sports models do sell?
  12. These things are quite good and nice and easy to use, you might want to consider a new gasket as well https://www.amazon.co.uk/Watch-Grease-Silicone-Sealing-gaskets/dp/B01AYLHVS8
  13. Omega Speedmaster Automatic (aka Mk4.5)
  14. If you want to have a go at shortening your mesh bracelet there's a good tutorial here:
  15. @Jeff Reisman my first call would be to Clerc Americas Inc Clerc Americas Inc. 1444, Biscayne Blvd Suite 201 Miami, FL 33132 +1 305.588.3628 +1 (305) 812 3344 americas@clercwatches.com
  16. Glycine Incursore Aviator 3762 - Unitas 6497
  17. It is noticeable that many brands have fewer >44mm watches in their line-ups. I did try some large watches, had a Glycine Airman 46mm which had a 24mm bracelet and wore larger than its 46mm due to its large dial and narrow bezel. I made the mistake of wearing it to go to the dentist, the dental nurse exclaimed, oh my god that's huge"! just as the dentist was about to start drilling - kind of put me off wearing it
  18. Glycine Incursore Aviator 3762 - 44mm diameter Unitas 6497
  19. Nowt wrong with a nice bezel!
  20. Roy has added a day / night / light /dark function (top right) I like the night / dark setting
