  1. In my case it is definitely a shock when the club connects with the ball
  2. 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/
  3. I believe in German it is "Eiserne Anna" which sounds better
  4. Jason89 bought one
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Yes! A good name for a female WWE wrestler perhaps but not for a watch
  8. 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
  9. I nearly always with a watch on, just never think about taking it off.
  10. 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
  11. Cheap mass produced Swiss bar movement, nice little watch but not worth much
  12. 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/
  13. 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/
  14. A case of busman's holiday but interesting nontheless
  15. Good to see Levert and Williams both in their early 70's here, I would have loved to have seen them live
  16. Nice acquisition and great collection!
  17. I have this Newmark with a VH31 the second hand moves four times per second rather than sweeps but does look much nicer than the 1 jump of standard quartz calibres
  18. WOW! Now that's an acquisition!! Congratulations Great post but I want to know what car you are going to buy for the dashboard mount
  19. British watchmaking according to KPMG is “a dynamic sector with an opportunity for development” 100 domestic companies in the sector, selling some 1m timepieces a year with combined revenues of about £100m. https://www.ft.com/content/c4f865d6-dbdb-43e1-ba6b-da82a407ecc3 https://britishwatchmakers.com/featured-story-2
  20. @AVO I am with you on CyS I have always had a hankering for one!
  21. Looks good @Roy you should be able to see to tell the time now!
