  1. Anyone out there with a Mickey watch? This is a Lorus auto (Seiko movement) from Disneyland, Florida. It dates to 1990, so is now 30 years old (2020). The auto movement is a 17 jewel, Singapore made Seiko Y621-6050A1, with quick set date. It features an 18ct GP case, with display back that has a gold Mickey outline on it. The dial has raised, gold tone Arabic numerals with a lovely depiction of a 'Pie Eyed' Mickey in the centre. Mickey's arms are the hands. The watch also has a second hand. Thankfully, the previous owner kept this out of the light, and only wore it rarely, so there is no fading to Mickey. I have never seen another one like it so would describe it as 'scarce'....many Mickeys are quartz. My second Mickey is a Bulova Accutron 'Hummer'. This is smaller than the Lorus...probably a ladies or even a childs watch. It has the later 2193 calibre movement, which only had one coil on the tuning fork, and a counterweight on the other side. It has a date code of N7, dating it to 1977...making it 43 years old (2020). This watch was fully serviced by our own 'Silver Hawk' at 'Electric Watches', including a case re-polish. The wife wears this one. The two together... Would love to see some other examples...

  5. Went to check out the Thames at Hurley lock to see if it was possible to go fishing...but the river was up and pushing through very rapidly. The sluices on the weir were fully open to let the water away...one slip here, and you'd be a goner. Needless to say, we'll be on a lake later in the week.
