  1. Oh good score Roger! Where did you find that! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. @Davey P good man! I have a Roland kit, which is popular in my house mainly because you can A) Turn it down! or B) Put it on headphones! I must admit it's gathering a bit of dust at the moment, I really must get going with learning how to play again. I had a go for the first time about a year ago on an acoustic kit though, and oh boy are they loud and just generally awesome!
  3. Very nice score Roger. You still got that beautiful Orca was it called that you bought a year or so back when you were on holiday I think? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Big A Little a bouncing B, if the system don’t get you it wont get me... something like that iirc? Good days. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Great find! I would love one of those to upgrade my little US. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. There are lots of them on the Bay (ask me if I learnt this stuff the hard way, I dare you!). I'd imagine on a good day you'd get a good couple of hundred plus for yours on a well known auction site. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Had this one on this morning for dog walking and then trying to fix the Ben Ghazi on my motorhome, I get all the glamorous jobs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. It's lovely. Aftermarket dial though - the model number looks straight and should be curved I think. Also the dial says "water 70 proof" which was only on the early ones (stopped about 71? Would need to check) and the back says resist. The date code on the back is June 1976 so the dial should be blank where it says water 70 proof. The rotating insert and the bezel insert are also I think AM. The movement says 6139A which was used until it was replaced in 1971/2 with the 6139B. So yes, it looks like it is a very beautiful watch that is made from other parts. Still beautiful but like other watches originality pushes the price higher. I hope this hasn't come across as snotty as I'm not a watch snob, just wanted to try and answer your question and supply a couple of reasons for saying what I did rather than just being negative.

  9. Ups - I can finally get back on the forum from my iPad! Ups - I'm on holiday in Cornwall! Ups - Just browsed some threads and recognised most of the contributors! Downs - Life's too short for downs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. That doesn't look all that Quartzey Mach! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Billy Pogue! (Actually I did buy a KS watch called Billy before I discovered forums) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That's nice! Been hoovering up cheap Casio digitals lately, might have to buy a proper one soon! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Late to the party today, been super busy lately. Not been using the paddling pool much this week! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Do you listen to Frank Skinner on Saturdays by any chance? You don't strike me as being of that ilk so it's probably a coincidence but he mentioned last week that he had bought himself a hop along Cassidy wristwatch as he always wanted one as a small boy but his family couldn't afford such things...

  15. That's really nice! Happy wearing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
