  1. That's really nice. Love the graining on the case, and I can't believe it was using tritium all those years ago. It must have been the first.
  2. I don't know about the other books mentioned, but I bought 'The watch repairer's manual' by Henry B.Fried and, while it's full of great technical information, it's pretty hard going if you're a novice. I don't think it's your best bet if all you are going to be doing is a bit of case refinishing, fitting new crystals etc. There are pictorial/video guides out there on the internet for that kind of stuff which I found much easier to take in.
  3. They don't look that small to me :D Seriously though I love 'em, especially the second one down.
  4. If you try to leave don't you wake up in Portmeirion?
  5. I have to agree. I recently bought a watch which never arrived, and after filing a claim with PayPal thinking it was a formality, was astonished when PayPal found in the sellers favour as he had provided PROOF OF POSTING. If I hadn't used my credit card to fund the purchase, I would have been down £300 now.
  6. That watch exudes class. I love the beautifully clear dial, the finish on the bracelet, and that box – amazing!
  7. Oh yeah, "your boy" has the dvd. Come on admit it, it's yours. :tongue2:
  8. Watch looks great, and sounds like great personal service from STS.
  9. What do you mean by build Ginault, are you a watchmaker?
  10. Over an hour and he still hasn’t done it. What self control. :notworthy:
  11. Thanks for all the replies guys; I knew you were a friendly bunch really. Good point Watch-nut, I hadn’t thought of it like that. I was a bit upset that I didn’t get replies from these two sellers, but the main reason for my post was to make sure that I hadn’t done something wrong. You’ve put my mind at rest now.
  12. Congrats on your 500. I’ve just worked out that at my current post rate it’s going to take me 3 years to get there. LOL.
  13. Don’t be offended Gaz, I try not to look at too many watches on the sales forum as my wanted list is already too big since I joined this forum. :wink2:
  14. No, not rude at all, I just said “Could I have it please?†Emailed. I tried PM-ing the second one but I coudn't so I assumed his box was full. They weren’t actually watches, just accessories.
  15. Wow. That’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. I can’t figure out how they did some of the things on there.
