  1. Always nice to read a post like this. I still have a feeling of great satisfaction when completing little projects. Although it has to be said magnification and abstaining from caffeine for several hours before are a must for me now . Thanks for posing Alan and nicely done..
  2. I have whittled it down to 1 of 2 that's as far as I have got today
  3. It's a long drawn out saga that would be pages to quote. An honest mistake once perhaps? Below from 2011. BEWARE BEWARE, Ebay seller scam heads up!
  4. Worth posting here in case you guys are not aware. A known alleged scammer on TZ has resurfaced with a supposedly legit watch selling outfit. http://www.zedwatches.co.uk/ I hope @Roy that posting this link is OK but the membership here needs to be aware that this chap has previous for passing off fakes as the real deal. Below is a quote from the TZ thread from the chap in question. zsayub116610 Hi all,Just wanted to make it crystal clear, that I have made mistakes in the past and I am definitely not proud of them. I want to apologise for these mistakes and I have really regretted every moment. I always knew it would come and bite me back in the ass - and it has. I have been buying and selling real watches for a while now, and only recently I have formed a company to make everything legitimate and separate from my Pharmacy accounts. The address is based in London for privacy reasons, because I dont have a shop or an office, and I dont want people to know where I live holding ‘x’ amount of stock. Plus you get that London based address free for one year if you sign up with 1st formations. Just want to emphasise that all my watches are genuine and I am happy for them to be verified anywhere you want. Only a couple of days ago I thought id join the Rolex group on FB to see what client base I can find on there, as predominantly its been on eBay. In regards to XXX, either you’re fibbing, or you’re friends with a person called XXX (he’s a trader apparently). I sold him by accident a 116610LN super fake, as I myself was duped into buying one from a private individual. It had papers, the box, the tag and I didn’t realise until it was too late. XXX messaged me mid-april. Even though I sold the watch to him in early January. Regardless, once I verified it was the watch I sold to him, because I couldn’t believe I bought a fake, I refunded him £7k out of £7.3k he paid me, as to cover my bank charges. So I refunded him 95% of the money he paid. My number has always been the same and I run a legit business, and I refunded him straight away, if your friend was sold one please get in touch. Yes I have 3 hulks at the minute, a daytonaC and a black date sub. I can get them verified anywhere you want, preferably at Rolex St James, as ADs won’t ‘verify’ any watch per se. I am really sorry for my past, and I can’t change that now, and it always will bite me in the ass being on the internet. But I wanted to say I am running completely legit, and if you want me to verify the watches with a member of the forum at Rolex St James I am more than happy to do so. I have dealt with a lot of companies, and a lot of private individuals and im sure they can vouch for me and the watches I sold.Please see pics of the super fake I bought without knowing, and the rectification I made. I am £7k out of pocket but I now know how to spot super fakes very easily and I guess its a hard lesson learnt.https://imgur.com/a/hvLvo9aAgain I am sorry,Best RegardsZack
  5. I think a nice Sailcloth will suit it down to the ground
  6. I would just check that? My pantheon bracelet detaches. Although not easily if I recall.
  7. With @JoT Today but trying different strap options.
  8. I like the Certina Powermatic DS PH200M has a nod to retro styling granted but still a versatile watch. As for the powermatic service I really would not sweat it. The majority of brands carrying this movement have a couple of years warranty plus a base 2824 should be fairly easy to service by a good independent as for the Synthetic materials tissot have been at it for years.
  9. The new Superocean does not do it for me, In my opinion the market is saturated with Subalikes as it is with better to be had at a fraction of the cost for example the Hydro conquest. I am happy to have in my collection a Superocean 2007 and Aerospace 2013 with the exception of a Navitimer 806 I think I am content on the Breitling front for now.
  10. Pleasure is not always about massive outlay.
  11. As always a joy to see your collection Martin. A keen eye for some interesting pieces
  12. Not a post I would usually make is I am quite driven in making watch purchases but on this occasion I am at a crossroads. I am in the nice position of having a credit with a local watch retailer. I have narrowed it down to 2 potential purchases both used and both watches I have seriously hankered for although massively different. Omega Seamaster Proprof 2011 Full Set. Very large marmite watch but unusual and less common comes in bang on credit amount. Rolex Milgauss 2009 Watch only. Will need to add some cash. Bearing in mind there is a chance I may wish to trade these later the lack of Box and papers for the Milgauss niggles me slightly but should I sweat it bearing in mind there are routes to get authentication provenance? The proprof will I look a prat with a massive dive watch that probably wont see depths above the hotel pool plus how do they perform in the used market? my thoughts are the Milgauss will hold it's value better? So what would be your choice thoughts on this quandary? I know ultimately it is down to personal choice but on this occasion I just can't think straight in making a decision and I don't unfortunately have the option of getting both
  13. Nothing in he diary for today probably will grab this for out and about.
  14. Calibre De Cartier today In house 1904 - PS MC movement.
  15. Tudor trying to prevent resellers of LE watches. There has been a spate of profiteers buying Limited Edition watches and selling on to the likes of WF etc which in my opinion artificially inflates the watches value and can limit genuine enthusiasts access to said watches. It unfortunately will be the wave of the future in certain brands. It is frustrating if like me you are a completist but in the grand scheme of things a small niggle. It is a beautiful watch the stickers & hang tag are an aside. Ask if they form part of the purchase price as there will be some cost if so you could argue a discount but then they may just move down the list to the next buyer alternatively you could ask if they can retain them and you will collect in a year?
  16. Quick grab and go this morning.
  17. Simply "Japan" just relates to the movement inside. Some Japanese quartz derivative.
