  1. I have the gilt dial version, nice little watch
  2. Welcome back Kev and good you are recovering After 4 years the battery in your 516 is probably ready for a change, might be enough juice for the main hands but not be enough juice for the stopwatch
  3. Owned by Citizen these days, interesting brand as they developed a dozen or so in-house movements I quite like this one
  4. A design rip-off, little better than a counterfeit in my opinion
  5. My order of preference is: Bracelet NATO Leather Rubber Bracelets are good in all weathers, they are also very secure, I have never had a bracelet fail or pop a spring bar. NATO are comfortable to wear and good in all weathers but you have to be careful with spring bars as it can be easy to pop one, I usually fit 1.5mm or 1.8mm shoulder-less spring bars to a watch if I am wearing it on a NATO, it is the next best thing to a fixed bar. I like the way leather looks on a watch but in my opinion it is not suitable for all weathers, horrible to wear in summer and can get smelly. Rubber or resin straps, I just can't get on with them, which is a shame because I like the way they look.
  6. Tudor Black Bay black dial but on a bracelet
  7. Hard to decide, I like them both, perhaps the Datejust has the edge
  8. Vostok watches with a 2414 movement such as this -
  9. In my case it is definitely a shock when the club connects with the ball
  10. You have a few options, send it to Tissot to replace the battery, buy a gross of insulators or have a go at making your own https://gleave.london/assortment-battery-insulators/
  11. I believe in German it is "Eiserne Anna" which sounds better
  12. Jason89 bought one
  13. Having worn Seiko watches since the 70's I can't say I have noticed anything different, other than improved quality of the vast majority of their watches. Has Seiko's alleged QC failings just become one of those internet things which lacks hard evidence, do a few people on Youtube really mean things have got worse I can certainly remember the occasional misaligned bezel or second hand in the 70's and 80's
  14. Didn't Tiger Woods play in his sponsored Tag Heuer automatic golf watches? They seemed to stand up to his golf swing, not so sure how they would fare with his car driving and nocturnal activities though
  15. Yes! A good name for a female WWE wrestler perhaps but not for a watch
  16. Minus 1 second a day is very good, and well within COSC range (-4 to +6 seconds) not sure of Tudor apply the same -2 to +2 seconds Rolex is reputed to use but if they do it is also within that range. 1 second a day means your watch is 99.999% accurate
  17. I nearly always with a watch on, just never think about taking it off.
  18. I don't think @Roy should act as an escrow agent, it would be more trouble than it is worth and there are legal and tax implications as has been pointed out. I have been on the forum since 2003 and a moderator for much of that time. There have been very few incidents during this time where sales have proved to be fraudulent. The admin team are good at weeding out new members who look like they are only here to sell before they reach the 50 post classifieds threshold, but we don't catch them all and of course there is no way of telling if one or other is dishonest. One option would be to increase the Classified access threshold to 200 posts
  19. Cheap mass produced Swiss bar movement, nice little watch but not worth much
  20. Both of these links will take you to Kickstarter and Indiegogo policies on accountability Worth reading before you decide to invest https://www.kickstarter.com/blog/accountability-on-kickstarter https://learn.indiegogo.com/trust/
  21. Kickstarter does not accept any accountability for projects which fail or presumably for scams and neither does Indiegogo I will pin these links to the Kickstarter section https://www.kickstarter.com/blog/accountability-on-kickstarter https://learn.indiegogo.com/trust/
