  1. Hi everyone old and new. Having had 3 heart attacks I am slowly but surely getting better and feel up to the climb upstairs to the computer. I do have a question though, I have a Tissot PRS 516. The watch is around 4 years old from memory and is on the original Renata battery. It keeps perfect (or near enough) time but...... The stop watch function doesn't work. I have the back off and the buttons seem to be moving the appropriate part in the movement, a 10212 V8. I can of course change the battery and see if that makes any difference. I am fairly sure,(though not positive) that I tried the stop watch function when I got the watch as you do and had it not worked it would have gone back to whence it came, too late now. Anyone any ideas?
  2. Only just seen this as I tend to go direct to the watch discussion forum. Interesting article as always. I bought this quartz one on a plane from who knows where to somewhere else. It sat in a pocket for nearly 5 years forgotten. Its had one new battery in 15 years whcih I find incredible and means the one in it will now be flat.
  3. I like it a lot and have never has a problem with an Accurist watch, good buy as far as I can see.
  4. I liked it till the wrist shot, it looks like they have a clock on their wrist to me.
  5. Welcome to the ruin to your finances that will no doubt follow.
  6. I think its a good looking watch even if it looks like someone stuck some G Shock hands on it Looks OK to me definitely shouldnt be in the ugly category
  7. Deano I only just saw your address is Wakefiled, before moving to France in 2007 we lived in Skelmanthorpe. Don't know why I would be surprised that another watch and car nut would live in the same County there are plenty of us!!!! Cheers Kevin
  8. Plus one for the congratulations and membership of a nice club. Also plus one for more details and pics of the two cars please
  9. For what it is worth I own 6 Seikos, none similar to the ones you mention and 3 costing around £60 others a fair bit more but max £300. Without exception all are excellent time keepers, are standing the test of time, two are Automatics both start with the mildest of movement. I is a solar and is happy in the dark for at least 4 months.
  10. Very nice looking watches. I went on Jomashops site to check out the prices and weirdly every single one is out of stock, have you bought them all.
  11. This one today can't remember the last time I wore it
  12. This one this morning while working outside Then later will be this Rodania
  13. Now I like weird watches and the out of the ordinary but these are too long in the case. Not sure whether it is trying to be a Royal Oak homage or not but it fails IMHO if thats what its trying to be.
  14. No idea why I just opened the post and the image was there. I will try again, its only a picture of the watch after I cleaned it in the sink. Apart from a few cracks/scratches on the plastic lens and missing lettering theres not much to see really.
  15. Probably not but I'm with DaveyP I like the look of it. Mind you in my days of buying cheap Chinese watches I would never have bought one with fake dials, weird really
  16. Picture is the after, before was many occasions over the years
  17. Can't see what? Hopefully you mean you cannot see the image not anything else.
  18. ...well actually SKMEI from dead to life again. This was my go to watch for jobs in the garden and on my old Volvo Amazon. It was mistreated all the time, got submerged in oil, covered in grease then underseal and various paints. Nothing seemed to harm it even after almost 5 years, still the same battery. Then came the fateful day it fell in a petrol bath I had used to clean up some carburettor parts. By the time I had found somewhere dry to put the parts the lights had gone out and no ammount of button pushing would bring it back to life, the SKMEI was no more. It got left on a bench, got covered in cobwebs, dust and all sorts of discarded bits and stayed there for nearly 2 years. Yesterday I was having a tidy up and heard a faint beeping coming from an old bench. The alarm had gone off at its default time of 12 noon. There is was covered in crap and still keeping time maybe a couple of minutes out which may have been the case when it fell in the petrol bath. A good scrub with a scrubbing brush and some soapy water and it has come up as good as n.... well has cleaned up and is working again. Even seems pleased to be back on my wrist! Weird how much abuse some watches can take. (I know its a co.. homage to a G Shock but I wasn't aware when I bought it as was not then as interested in watches). Well here it is in its scrubbed up glory.

  20. Reverse Panda Nearly a proper Panda Panda with its eyes shut More like an owl than a Panda Panda Cock eyed Panda Didn't know I had so many!
  21. Way down the other end of watch budgets but this Chinese auto has been brilliant and I did answer your post
  22. I prefer the blue one, but I am drawn to blue faced watches for some reason so maybe thats the reason. Has a touch of Skagan to it I think.
  23. Nice watch and quite a bit different from the usual Edifice offerings. I have two and they are both superb IMHO
