  1. Plus 1 for Mark he’s excellent has a forum and Facebook group too Top guy really helpful
  2. Just assembled really more than homemade I suppose, no machining of parts or cases involved unless you count cutting the stem
  3. Another one of my homemade efforts today, sterile 7750 chrono Even set the day/date
  4. As it’s silver it’s hallmark will give you a reasonably accurate idea of its age and a picture will help regarding any further information
  5. 8123 is the movement calibre, a google search shows it takes a 381 battery
  6. My only Camy in the collection as @John_D says very underarted in my opinion also , they use good movements generally , this one is fitted with an ETA 2789 which if the name was different on the dial would be worth considerably more
  7. Takes me back to undoing tight lashings onboard ships
  8. I also have a set of the Chinese ones and have found them to work fine , very good for the money if you’re only using occasionally
  9. Is there a plastic insulation disc under the negative contact
  10. Definitely worth spending a few Bob on it’s a cracker
  11. They came from the links below , came quite quickly too considering , there are lots of different cases hands and dials , quality was very good too , stainless case and good luminosity on the dial , especially for the money imo https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stainless-Steel-Watch-Case-Repair-Spare-Part-for-Eta-6497-6498-Seagull-ST36-44mm/193645853767?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-ETA-6497-Watch-Luminous-Watch-Dial-Sterile-Sandwich-Dial-Repair-Accessories/174342992501?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=473540781719&
  12. Built the first one and a friend of mine liked and wanted it so next project is to make another one for myself again
  13. I’ll have to look it out , I’m reading “I spy” now the latest Tom Marcus one
  14. If anyone has read The tattooist of Auswitsch , then the sequel Cilkas journey is a must. An absolutely gripping read that I found hard to put down, even bought me to tears at one stage. Highly recommended
