  1. Its been a while, but I did buy a f300 from eBay, but not the one on this link. Found an exact same model for sale and got it for £250. It was on a hideous scrawny black leather woven strap, but otherwise in excellent running order. It was then my mission to get it back to original as the thin leather strap it came on was def not original. I hunted around on forums and checking out old catalogs at http://www.old-omegas.com/ (many thanks, an excellent site) and found that it should have come on a leather strap which fitted flush at the case end and then tapering down towards the buckle
  2. Hi all, Just purchased this watch. Has anyone got any info that may help me? Approx age? I'd like any pointers as to how to get it back looking original. Anyone have any ideas how it would have looked new? Strap? Are the hands original? Crown doesn't have the GP initials, should it? I'd like to get it looking as original as possible, but I don't want it to look brand new...loving the dial as is and even the badly scratched glass. The bonus is it's keeping great time without even being serviced. Many thanks to all!
  3. Would any of you guys know where I may be able to source either a new strap or braclet for one of these? It needs an 18mm strap at the lug, but if the strap were to flow from the edges of each side of the watch then the strap would need to be 24mm wide & nothched to 18mm for the fitmet to the lugs. Is this possible? Other than that I'll need to be looking for the integrated bracelet again 24mm wide with 18mm lug fitment...sounds like I may not have too much joy down either root. Suggestions anyone? Cheers
  4. Thanks for this KeithT. I had done as handelhall had done and checked the omega vintage watch database, but I did know that the db is not a complete reference to every single Omega that has been made. I suppose just a bit of reassurance really. If I'm buying an 70's Omega I want it to be as it was when it hit the market and not something that has been chucked together by someone in the past to make some money. Thanks all. DC.
  5. Hi, I am interested in this watch on an auction site found here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OMEGA-CONSTELLATION-DAY-DATE-ELECTRONIC-F-300-HZ-WATCH-/180801309808?pt=UK_Jewelery_Watches_Watches_MensWatches_GL&hash=item2a18990c70 I just can't seem to find a day/date model of f300 in this case elsewhere. Is it a case of a complete f300 movement/face etc being placed in a Megasonic case and having a leather strap fitted? As the case definitely looks like a Mega!?! Anyone have any clues on what model it is? Is says on the face Constellation Chronometer under the red omega symbol at 1
  6. Thanks pugster for the reply. I wouldn't be collecting ladies watches either...I'm more of a Omega (for sports watches)/Vacheron Constantin (for dress watches) kinda guy :D :D :D One other non-related query. How do I get to post a pic directly on my posting? I can't seem to fathom it. I can see the 'My Media 'button, but when I click it I cannot browse my local storage to attach a jpeg?!?
  7. How do I date a Bucherer ladies 18k gold wrist watch? By the gold markings on the watch? Are there any other identifying marks that I can search for somewhere on the watch? Here's a photo (again not the best): https://plus.google.com/photos/107338305882305419033/albums/5710879606232811233 All I know is that my mother inherited from her sister when she passed away some years ago. On the face it says Bucherer, the company logo and Swiss made. On the case it has its gold markings along with CD 18k 0.750 and CB750 on the gold strap also. The movement is in very good nick (visually)
  8. Hi, OK I'm new to the forum, so hello to all. I doubt not too many of you are into ladies wrist watches, to be honest neither am I. However my mother has been having a clear out and has found this watch that she would like more info on. I have taken a couple of photo's, though not of the best quality, I'm afraid. https://plus.google.com/photos/107338305882305419033/albums/5710871755882520721 Looking at the case when it is opened (hinged at either top or bottom, cannot remember), the case says Stolkace, GAS, British made and also has 9k gold markings. The metal/gold strap is of the
