  1. Yep, especially as UPS then charge an additional al £11 ‘brokerage fee’ on top. It’s disgusting. I’ve disputed it with them and will raise a complaint, as the government website suggests that for the value of the item it should be due no charges. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks very much. The UK based one is selling bezel inserts for the most part. The two bezels they’re selling that are the style that I need ( the ones with removable bezel inserts, not the original solid ones) don’t fit my case number. The German seller seems to be priced rather high compared to places outside of the EU, but maybe that’s the going rate inside the EU.
  3. Evening all, I’ve seen a few threads here and there on other forums regarding Vostok bezels and where to source the, however I’m hoping for some more UK specific advice. I’ve just purchased a Vostok Amphibia in a 120 case from Russia for £60, and have just been hit by custom fees + a bloody UPS handling fee of £28. So I’m keen to source a bezel from somewhere within the EU. Does anyone have any pointers on places that sell Vostok bezels more locally? Or maybe concrete guidance on other bezels that fit a 120 case. I’m happy to buy a bezel without insert if needs be, and then source the insert separately, as the inserts seem to be easier to come by. Thanks!
  4. Haha, cheers for the replies! Very much appreciated Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Evening all, I’ve relocated my watches into a wardrobe, however there isn’t an available power socket nearby to plug my watch winder into. Has anyone implemented any ingenious solutions to powering a watch winder that’s not near a socket? I’ve searched for battery powered ones but they seem a bit sparse on this side of the pond. I know I could manually wind them as and when I need them, which I do for all of mechanical watches bar one, one that I cannot manually wind. Which I why I keep it on a winder to make sure it has enough power reserve when I come to wear it. Thanks! Jack

  7. Haha yep oiling sorry. Bloody autocorrect and my lack of proof reading [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I've got the same issue with the Seiko 7s26 that I bought to practice on. Out of interest what demagnetiser did you go for? And are you going to practice piling the movement at the same time?
  9. It's probably a good thing that I'm thinking of using it as a practice movement to take apart and put back together as it's arrived and is running very fast. Gaining about 5 minutes every half an hour or so! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I've bought myself a running seiko 5 with a 7s26a movement to try on. I've only ever tried to dismantle rubbish Chinese watches and failed. So I'm going to follow a few videos to see if I can gradually disassemble and reassemble more and more whilst still keeping it working. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
