  1. Rene Rondeau used to sell them, but he retired several years ago. Jarett at https://www.unwindintime.com/ took over the business, so he probably has them
  2. Is there any particular problem getting a vintage Certina ds2 serviced? 



  3. I know that feeling....had to sell a couple of bikes when we moved in 2015...but now re-stocked. I'm not a fan of my friend's Norton Superior, otherwise known as the Norton Inferior .
  4. The summer just past has been so good for motorcycling that my electric watches didn't get a look in and I've only recently started working on them again. This year, I've done more miles than any previous year and, having moved to Dorset in Dec 2015, I've met a great bunch of like-minded bikers. As I always take my trusty Sony RX100 III camera with me, here are a few photos on my motorcycling summer....let's see yours!
  5. The Contact page on my website says I'm temporarily closed....but people then locate my email address from forums, past correspondence etc. and try and contact me that way. But I'm afraid that if my Contact page says I'm closed, then....I'm closed. (which mean no email response either). Now....can I go back to sun bathing and vintage motorcycling? Of course, once we get back to normal UK wet summer weather, I'll re-open.
  6. I'm still here...sometimes. One of my all time favourites...and never seen another:
  7. So the estimate was a bit low then? Interesting watch. It's a shame that there is no reference to "f300" or "Speedsonic" on the dial. That movement serial number 38xxxxxx is certainly a high one. But, oh, that battery , never fit an this Energizer 344/350 hybrid to your f300; the shape is slightly wrong and the battery often shorts out. I won't tell you how many "broken" f300 I've fixed because owners have fitted this battery --- sending a watch from the US for me to just do a battery change doesn't make a lot of sense .
  8. @JoT Fancy seeing you here...just like old times, where is @Griff No need for a revival...Disco never went away
  9. I don't do any touring but I do like to ride old bikes as often as possible....like this one on Tuesday:
  10. Our collared doves are really braving The Beast From The East today....
  11. "hummer" is too generic a term when discussing "hacking"...and "hacking" means different things to different people. ESA 9162, 9164 : movement found in Omega f300, Tissot Tissonics, Longine Ultronuc etc. These will disconnect battery when crown pulled fully out Accutron 214 : some hack (214H), some do not.. but none disconnect the battery Accutron 218 : all hack but only some disconnect the battery (218F, 218G) Obviously, if the battery is disconnected, the humming stops
  12. Still love those Longine Comets Dave...but it has to be the yellow dialled one for me. See you soon!
