  1. Some of the top ones have a jewelled quartz movement this one has a Miyota OS60 movement..
  2. I read an article by a member on here about Camel Trophy watches, After reading I was determined to add one to my collection It has taken a while to get one at a affordable price, but this one is a beaut. Original tin and paperwork, plus the original till receipt from H Samuels in 1995 showing it cost £239.00. The brass or bronze bezel is a strange colour but, I wonder was it to match the sand glow colour of the competing vehicles.
  3. I use a fine tip paint pen for the job. After removing the old flaking paint, I thoroughly degrease it then run the paint in and allow to dry. Dont worry about it spreading onto the bezel I just scrape it off with an expired credit card, then buff it up with my dremel using a felt mop. Never had a problem with it not sticking. the engraving is rough enough to give a good key.
  4. Most recent addition to my Seiko stable, a Black Monster. required only a clean, lub, and the bezel repainting.
  5. Just pinged two of my watch back screws while changing the battery on my Raymond Weil 9826-2 dress watch. The slotted screw heads are approx 1.5 mm dia. Far to tiny for me to attempt to measure with my vernier gauge. I have had the watch for nearly tthirty years, and changed the battery many times without mishap, I must be getting old. Does any one know the correct size. Thankyou.
  6. Perseverance works , I now have time date month and day all working, I have no use for alarm so gave it a miss. The stop watch side works fine. I have had a lot of entertaiment for the £4 it cost. Thanks every one for your input.
  7. Only a one position crown, but yes today i found with it pulled out I could set the time and day. but of course this stops the analogue watch so you have to use another watch to set the digital time. Very handy havng the snooker to watch while I twiddle. I am getting there.slowly., thank you for your help
  8. Running out of combinations. I thought I had cracked it when I managed to set the time yesterday then at midnight it changed from 12 to 1AM..
  9. Of Japanese manufacture for chinese watch, I have had the movement out and no identifying marks. Online searches reveal many others seeking information. I will post a picture.
