  1. That's the one! Love that speedometer dial. Very similar to the autodromo stradale but with a power reserve mini dial and its Swiss! Now the long wait begins.
  2. This is my new grail watch. I've always lusted over the Autodromo Stradale. I love the vintage car vibe but it's expensive for a watch with a miyota movement. Along comes the Christopher Ward C9 AM GT. Everything I want in a watch with a display back! Only I'm too late to the party. Anyone got one? Any experience with one? If anyone is thinking about flipping one please consider me! Cheers,
  3. I'm looking for a watch with the ST19 movement and panda dial but cant find one I like that is still being made! I'm not a fan of the seagull 1963 and the two models I have found are now obsolete (the aramar long beach and the emg gl63) Does anyone know of any other makes that use the movement? Thanks in advance.
  4. 14mm Can't find a panda dial version of this
  5. Evening chaps, I'm facing a slight dilemma. I have a space in my watch box that I would like to fill this year. My criteria has always been auto and Swiss although I do have two exceptions. A seiko that I bought to try modding and Phoibos Wavemaster because I wanted a cheap auto diver to wear in the sea (plus i really love the dial). Now what i want is a vintage looking panda dial chronograph. Not fussed if its panda or reverse panda or a coloured panda. My grail for this watch is the Hamilton Intra Matic but it's way too expensive at the moment. I cant justify the money. Now here is the dilemma. I have found a few options. Do I go Swiss quartz? In which case there is the Christopher Ward C3 Grand Tourer. Good pedigree. I like CW and have two others. Or for a little less money there is the Rotary Les Originals Avenger. Again its Swiss quartz. I have two other Rotary Les Originals autos which are very good quality nice watches. Or do I go hand wound. There is the Aramar Long Beach which uses the Seagul ST19 which although is made in China it is essentially a Swiss Venus 175. (This still sort of counts as Swiss in my eyes). Plus it has a display back which I am a big fan of. Tough decisions. What are peoples thoughts and are there any other brands/watches I should look at? Cheers.
  6. For a long, long time now I've been waiting for my local Lidl to stock their tea boxes and today was my lucky day. A whole tray of them in the middle aisle! So I bought two. So that gave me the perfect excuse for a state of the collection post . So here we go. The brown strap box: The black strap box. Plus a SS bracelet: The only issue is that there are two empty spaces. So I'm off to find two watches to obsess over. Thanks for looking.
  7. This one is new in today and I think might be staying on my wrist for a few days.
  8. Santa (the postman) bought a nice little early Crimbo pressie this morning. It feels like a long time since I bought a new watch (spring time) but I sold one the other day and felt it was only fair to but a new one . So a quick look at new saved searches on ebay and I was in luck. This has been on my wish list for a while and what a beautiful one it is. A Rotary Les Originals Legacy automatic. Sellita sw200 movement and sapphire crystal. I dont like the bracelet so I've put it on a brown leather rally strap for now.
  9. I love my CW watches (I have a C65 auto diver and a C65 trident vintage) but there one thing I wish they had. A display back. Has anyone tried an after market case back? Would one for a Hamilton Khaki fit? It looks like the same size case. Would I ruin my warranty if I take the back off? Cheers
  10. I love the styling of the straton watches but can't get my head around mecha-quartz.
  11. I only have one Rotary. It's automatic and 'swiss' and I've no issues with it yet.
  12. Bit late to the party but here is my contribution. Swiss automatic chronograph at under £500 When it was new. Oh and it's 45 mm.
  13. Fiddly little buggers they are. Hope you've got lots of patience.
  14. Good work buddy. You'll have to do a dial change next.
