  1. bumping this to draw attention, in case anyone can assist
  2. I've bought a Wittnauer Revue 10Kt GF watch. It's a rectangular form case with square seconds register at 6 oclock position. Manual wind movement. Again I have some pics but cannot post them from work. Thing is, I don't know much about these and can't find much on the internet on them either. If anyone can shed some light....?
  3. Has anyone heard of a watch brand "Page" ? I have just purchased one described as "Vintage wristwatch PAGE Circa 1940? original, hand-wind mechanical 15 jewels" Anyone with any info, links etc would be much appreciated. (Unfortunately I can't post to photobucket from work, but will post some pics tonight)
  4. OK another Q - an inexpensive loupe? This any good you reckon? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/30x21mm-Triplet-Jewelers-Eye-Loupe-Magnifier-Magnifying-Glass-Jewelry-Diamond/301724418501?_trksid=p5713.c100041.m2061&_trkparms=aid%3D333008%26algo%3DRIC.MBE%26ao%3D3%26asc%3D20140131132314%26meid%3D132423b4ab7743c4a41f8707c5955f47%26pid%3D100041%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D261439723382
  5. Don't Panic ! (as per the HHGTTG) I have no intention of dicking about with the movement of my own automatics but figured it would be handy to at least have a tool for fixing / changing out watch bands - something like this: ebay link and a tool for opening up the back of my quartz watches to replace the battery. Perhaps: ebay link and for opening mechanical watches I may see at thrift shops etc... to check the movements look OK. Perhaps like: ebay link or ebay link Advice welcome and alternative product suggestions. Eg there might be a better, but still inexpensive, case back opener (for example)
  6. This was my grandfather's watch. As far as I can tell it's a Tissot Seastar, but unlike all the others I've seen on the net it doesn't actually have 'seastar' written on the face. Can anyone shed any light as to why ? I don't imagine they are worth much, aside from (in this case) sentimentally, but I would like to know more about it. (sorry for the poor quality of the pic)
  7. On the 11/11/2015 I purchased my first vintage watch, a Seiko Diamatic 6119-5410.Crystal is near perfect, which is a good thing because of their shape they are near unobtainable. Case could do with a polish. It only cost me $100 which is a bargain, however as with all vintage watches I had no idea how long ago it had been serviced. Worse, it was fine ‘on the bench’ but when I wore it, it was losing time to the tune of….lots.Turns out the barrel jewel is broken and needs replacement – which will be done as part of the service I was expecting to have to have done anyway ($250). So in reality it will be a $350 watch but running perfectly. That’s still a good buy I reckon.Looks fantastic in my opinion and wears well on the wrist. I’m super happy and will be even happier when I pick it up from the watchmakers next Monday. I know it’s a long shot but does anyone know where I could get an electronic copy/scan of an owners manual for this?
  8. Barry that is a beautiful watch, and I'd be very happy to own one just like it. You mention prices can be sky high - what sort of ballpark would a watch like that generally be available for?
