  1. Joseph Samuel Wilday, 2 St Thomas Villas, The Butts, Coventry. Worked 12 years for Rotherham & Sons, Coventry. The Chester ‘F’ hallmark, I would suggest, relates to 1889/90. HTH.
  2. Pretty sure Mike still has a penchant for Eue de ‘Dirty Harry’ oil.
  3. Just need a full set now (with literature, box(s) & papers)...
  4. Really, or let out early for good behaviour? The care home has more residents now.

  6. This was included in my recent surprise gift (SEIKO 'UFO'), a brand I'd never come across before. Early 50's Swiss made Fregatt. Research (Mikrolisk) has shown the wordmark was registered by Natalis Watch SA/Joseph Muller & Cie, along with Aureole SA, both of La Chaux-de-Fonds. Cal: FHF 28 (family), 17 jewel. Attempts so far to identify the case maker have been unsuccessful... Nevertheless, a bonny, fully functioning, much appreciated gift! Ribbit

  11. 1972 9K AVIA OLYMPIC & bracelet. Cal: Peseux 320, 17 jewel. The timepiece (which was a gift to mark a significant birthday from my parents) that started my obsession fascination with all things horological... Tempus Fugit
  12. As disappointing as it may appear...’The rules are the rules’ You can always send a letter of disapproval to, Sir Graham Brady? Or, defect?

  14. Surprised to find a package had landed at Karrusel Towers yesterday! April 1972 SEIKO 6138-0011 (variant 0029)... Some further info... https://www.thewatchsite.com/threads/seiko-6138-ufo-chronograph-the-quintessential-dad-watch.303418/ This, along with another interesting timepiece, had been sent by a good (thoughtful) friend* as a distraction for me, from my current hectic workload. It certainly has *Ribbit
