  1. Or he has put the wrong hands on it. Defo take photos of stuff before you send it off for service
  2. I buy quite a lot of Oris watches and they always seem to have corrosion on the hands and/or the edge of the oscillating weight. I think you need to cut this guy some slack I can't see how it's his fault. If he doesn't work for Oris chances are even if he did tell you the heads needed changing then they wouldn't have supplied them so you'd have ended up with generic hands. What kind of service record does the watch have? Unless you're getting it re sealed every 3 years or so chances are it isn't water resistant.
  3. Maybe your reverser is cooked. If that seizes up you are basically manually trying to wind the oscillating weight too
  4. Here's my only little brand watch, at time of making I think it was around 150 a year,maybe more by now. The manufacture royale androgyne
  5. is it triggering anyone else the crown is pulled out in that photo? It would also seem looking at the professional photos that the bezel will be a fingerprint magnet
  6. umm Scott @birthyearwatches won't link him but he will explain
  7. This is as close as I have to a collection pic. They always seen to be in different places Here's the sleeper iwc. Hopefully soon to be back to a working watch
  8. most of the forums and my old photos died a death when photobucket started playing silly buggars
  9. Purdey make their shoes in Northampton, I have no idea on the price point tho
  10. mine is a a short list: 2006: Some sekonda watch some Kahuna watch 2020: Manufacture Royale Androgyne Breguet Tradition 7027 Caliber de Cartier Cartier Roadster chrono IWC Aquatimer IWC Portuguese 5007 IWC Big Pilot Perpetual 5029 Rolex Batman Rolex sub Ceramic no date Rolex oyster perpetual 39mm Omega Speedmaster professional Mont Blanc Ruissec Jaeger ultra thin cal 845 Jaeger Master Reveil Perpetual FWIW the sekonda still works
  11. Drop me a pm. I think I have a mostly complete 2483 lurking
  12. I'm not Simon but here you go if you see the little button on the edge of the movement releases the stem. Assuming it's still in its red casing ring I would put back into the case (without the screws) and press the button to release the stem so you don't out pressure on the dial or hands
  13. what's the issue? its not sitting flat or its sitting in the overbanked position so isn't oscillating? is there any power on the watch? in not take off the pallet frame and pallets and try to sit the balance again, any faults may be easier to see
  14. I still can't find an ordering system that works for adverts. I end up with super old ads or expired ones on page one or ordering a-z or by member which makes no sense
