  1. its a cracker,lovely watches, superb quality ,love mine
  2. hi Nigel,thanks for the Bobby Deerfield link,never seen that before.i have the more common white dialed version ,i think the black dial makes for a nicer watch but they are rarer i think.they are a big old lump of a watch which does get noticed.cheers greasemonkey....
  3. hi Nigel,i might be wrong but that bracelet looks larger one end,if so it might be for the bullhead,it will still fit as the ends are still 20mm...............................................
  4. i have this seiko H357-5040 model as worn by Bond in "for your eyes only"but this one does not receive messages..
  5. i rarely look at the sales corner now as i find it confusing and i cant tell a new ad from one thats been there months.
  6. 1960's MuDu unusual as its in 9ct gold .its on a Bewes 18ct gold bracelet from the same era.....................................................................................................................................................
  7. i relume many of my watches as some manufacturers use crap lume,practice on some hands first,,because it aint as easy as it looks.but with hands you can always clean it off and try again.dials are more tricky ,if you get it wrong theres no going back.excess lume if you try and pick it off,takes all the laquer and paint with it..couzins sell superluminova in little bottles for under £20 and varnish and thinners in the same tiny bottles for under a tenner each.the superluminova you obviously need but the varnish is just nail varnish and 5 litres of the thinners can be had for under £20 from any car paint factor.have fun
  8. this today,home built although an obvious homage,i fitted a a miyota 8215 movement.had some good results with those HAGWEE..
  9. in memory today of my uncle Wesley.born in southern Ireland he volunteered for the RAF.a tail end charlie, on the 4th of December 1942 aged 26 Wesley died at his guns over north Africa .
