  1. A pilots watch needs a big crown because you are expected to wind it with leather gloves on.
  2. I am surprised that you never got th HM armed forces contract.
  3. I seem to have a half memory that this was a brand sold as a duty free item on holiday charter flights.
  4. Kingsmen agents wear Bremont.
  5. I have just had an ad pop up on my Facebook feed an advert for Wimbledon Watch co Watches. Nothing unusual about that, I get loads of watch adverts, and I always click on them because I like looking at pictures of watches, whether they be high end unaffordables of rubbish cheapies. Wimbldon watches definitely fall into the rubbish cheapies category. I won't put in a link, you can work Google just as well as I if you want to look. What set these apart is the description of the movement, which claims to be the latest oriental Quartz that never needs batteries. This coul
  6. On a Jenny it has to be beads of rice bracelet, it's part of their unique look.
  7. Can't wait to see this. My guess is Digital in plastic case on gold coloured expanding bracelet. That should fit the description of "as far away from my usual tastes as possible".
  8. But not the blue plastic pin pusher you see for sale everywhere. Originally quoted wrong post.

  10. I had one of these, I have since moved it on. It was a lovely looking thing but the large face with no bezel ment that it wore far too large to be a dress watch, and it was too dressy to be anything else. So it never got worn. Yes they are UK based but the watches are from China with Chinese Seagull movements. I would say that they are realistically priced for what they are and I had no trouble selling mine when I decided to let it go.
  11. Simple rule. Your watch should always be worth less than your motorcycle.
  12. It looks like Harold Pinchbeck have lovingly handcrafted that watch using parts from the DEGAZ Seiko modders website.
  13. That's not a Mecca-Quartz. The Mecha-Quartz is a Quartz Chrono with a stopwatch that resets anti clockwise like a mechanical chronograph rather than rotating clockwise using the stepper motor.
