  1. Whilst it doesn't look "ladies'" I think at 33mm it is a bit small, my 11yo grandson wears a 36mm CWC G10 which looks perfect size-wise
  2. Omega Speedmaster Professional X-33 TS186.1999
  3. Optima are part of the RibaWatch group who produce fashion watches under several brand names, seem to be based in Switzerland and Lebanon Diamonds aren't necessarily expensive if they are of low quality and for this sort of fashion brand recommended retail price is usually meaningless as they are always sold at a big discount. "Sorted in 6 different brands we produce 200 different watch models and a total of 1000 different colour and style combination." https://www.ribawatch.com/brands-2015/ Would I pay $2k for one? Definitely not
  4. Seiko Marinemaster SBDX001 - the original, not a modern pretender!
  5. I think FM only introduced its first in-house movement about 10 years ago so your conquistador is probably an ETA base movement so third party servicing shouldn't be a problem If you check the Watch Repairers section there's a list of repairers, not endorsed by the forum but who have had positive reviews on various watch forums
  6. For a simple job such as replacing a glass and buffing a bracelet / case try https://www.michaelswift.co.uk/services If the glass was smashed there might be a danger of small parts of glass in the movement and it might need a service as well
  7. @Noob101 Matt your could try http://www.simonfreesewatchmakers.com/ or https://swisstimeservices.co.uk/ Both very good vintage Omega repairers
  8. I like it, looks good on the black strap. They have made a great job of the movement
  9. There's no reason why you can't have a go at changing the battery yourself, as long as you have the correct tools (a good screwdriver is essential), from bitter experience you have to be careful with the screws they have a habit of disappearing from the table. If you get stuck you could always post pictures on here for advice
  10. Needed a run, haven't worn it for a long time
  11. BMW and yes Wilson puts together nice watches, they are on your side of the pond as well
  12. The flowers have a nice fragrance, but it is a poisonous plant, if you have young children or animals around make sure they don't ingest it. They can also spread quickly via underground rhizomes as well as by seeds and can take over a bed if you aren't careful
  13. I also enjoy hand-wind watches, and have a few Unitas powered watches, a few Vostok / Poljot and several pocket watches, I enjoy the winding, the interaction with the watch and feeling for the point when it is fully wound.
  14. CWC T20 GS with protective shroud
  15. Your best bet would be to keep an eye on EBay, possibly a donor clock
  16. Breitling B1 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Omega X33 Omega Speedmaster Mk4.5 Orfina Royal Navy Seiko SKX007 Seiko SKXA35 Seiko 6105 Seiko 6309 Breitling Superocean Breitling Aerospace Porsche Design by Orfina chronograph Rolex Explorer II Rolex Sea Dweller That's all I can remember but there are others I am sure
  17. A wrist picture, the crown and pushers are too prominent B
  18. Get her a CWC T20 General Service watch - good quality Ronda quartz movement, super luminova lume, fixed bars so no chance of it being ripped off her wrist Put it on a black NATO, you can even get case protectors for them Great little watch I have one myself Sorted!
  19. The AD is correct and AD's tend not to get involved in scams, that's why they are ADs
  20. Schurren Unitas 6498
