  1. And a happy new year to you all. 1940's gold Tudor. Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. That's a lovely watch. I've been looking them myself.
  3. Thanks. Definitely one of my favourites! Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. Wow. Brilliant. Will add it to my list of places to visit...! Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Hi. I think it is a 3/4 plate English movement. Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Early 30's English made Rotherham & Sons in a silver case. Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Lovely watch. One I'm after myself. Enjoy!
  8. I agree with wrench. Buy the one you like. They are both good brands. Personally I'd buy a tissot visodate.
  9. Rolex OP date. Circa 1986 I think... Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Beautiful watch - I have one myself!
  11. Ha. Could be waiting a while! But would be very interesting to see just exactly what constitutes local content. I would still like to see a modern British movement at a reasonable price...
  12. Thanks - I think it's a lovely watch and that's a useful addition to my knowledge. I was aware they moved over to making components for the car industry, but didn't realise they still made commissions up to the 40's. There's now a company called rotherhams1750 making a watch called the 'Vale', casing up adapted swiss movements with some local content and finishing in their Coventry factory - it would be interesting to know if there's any link.
  13. Morning. 1926 Rotherham & sons - last of the great Coventry watchmakers and one of the few to at least partially adopt the American system of manufacturing and make the move to wristwatches... Stopped making watches around 1934 as far as I know.... Sent from my BKL-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. I've got around 60 watches now and have never contemplated selling any... the more I learn the more I want, although I am now trying to slow the rate of my purchases...
