  1. Thanks for the continued info. Also, I would like to source a vintage sub second hand that would fit and suit and am struggling to find one. Any ideas?
  2. Thanks for the info. I’m intrigued now by the Matchless engraving. Intrigued by it all to be fair. So I am guessing so far all we know is it is pre 1912? Thanks James

  4. Hi Guys, I inherited this pocket watch from my Grandad a few years back and it has sat in a box. I decided to give it a clean and try and get it to work and somehow I managed it. I have tried to find information on it from the internet based on the small amount I could illicit from the Watch itself. All I really know from it is that it was made my Jones & Company from Worcester and I believe it has been serviced a few times if those numbers stamped on the inner case declare that. I googled Jones & Company Worcester and the only information I found regarded William Kilbourne Kay going into partnership with George Jones in 1886 as a Watch company but dissolved in 1890. Kay then went alone as Kay's of Worcester and so I wondered if Jones went alone also and became Jones & Company? Does anyone know? The main but of info I really want is to know what year it is from. I simply want to put a date on it. I have some pictures that may help but am not sure how to add them...any advice? Thanks James
  5. Hi Guys, Thanks for the advise but unfortunately the notch is line up with the stem and the die is not touching the crystal. I have never known anything like it. It is like the case back is made of some alien metal that will not give enough to clip in. Very strange. Thanks anyway James
  6. Hi Guys, I am not sure if this is the right place to post or who Simon is to that matter as this is my first time pairing but hoped Simon could help. I am simply trying to reinsert a clip watch back and it just won’t go in. I have tried using a watch press, after trying with a clamp, but nothing. I have broken the crystal in the mean time and am awaiting a new one of those but still the back does not go in. I have checked online and it appears to be the correct one in every way. The watch is an Armani Exchange AX2084. Any help is gratefully received. Thanks James
