  1. The handsets on the SEs are much nicer. Black bezel ones sell out more quickly. If you can get one without a date it'll save you hours of faffing about and look better too. IMHO
  2. "Spoon" was an insult when I was at school. I could live with that, but not on that foul bracelet.
  3. I'd be a happy bunny too. Lovely watch.
  4. Further to my post about the stripped threads on my sbdc051, which @Rob.B very generously offered to fully refund (good man) I've completely stuffed it up trying to regulate it. I've done it before with some success, but maybe in hindsight i only got away with it. It was going well until I moved the beat adjuster by mistake (aargh) and everything has deteriotated progressively since. I think in trying to tease it back ive done something to the hair spring so now it won't run at all. Yesterday i had a beautiful watch that ran 20s fast. Today I've got a worthless heap of junk. Idiot.
  5. I've has an SM300 and a nomos club. I've still got the nomos club. The SM went a while ago and I honestly never miss it.
  6. But if i havent had the back off, how do i know the threads are stripped?
  7. I don't really know what happened. I've taken off enough Seiko case backs in my time to be able to do it without incident, but the threads on this have just gone. I suspect they were poor to start. Its a used buy. I've contacted the seller to see if they had any similar difficulty. I suspect I'm going to be lumbered with an expensive re-tap and no water resistance.
  8. I took the back off my sbdc051 to regulate it and the threads are stripped. I can't get them to bite at all with the gasket in, and they only just hold without the gasket. The warranty is only valid in japan. Any ideas?
  9. I'd be happy with one of these, though I'd keep a gshock and a diver too. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Good. Two tone watches. Urgh.
  11. @Nigelp, look on ebay for 7t62-ohfo. I can't seem to link to it through tapatalk. Its weird and recent vintage alright.
  12. I was always fond of the seiko sus 7t42s. I collected three then lost interest. I especially regret the red dial. The movements are a bit hit and miss and if i recall not that easy to reset.

  13. I've been wearing this all week. It's gained about 15 seconds a day, which is a bit much for me though within specs for a 6r15. I bought an uncle seiko tropic for it which is excellent. No lint or dust at all. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  14. This, courtesy of Rob.B. I don't think the design holds together on the (excellent) bracelet, but on a black isophrane all the vintage design cues come to the fore. Very pleased with it. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. But then, you live in Wales don't you? What do you expect?
