  1. One thing I hadn't noticed at first when I got the Tuna. Was the powder finish of the dial. I'm assuming that it was done to minimise reflections.
  2. What do you like on old watches that you don't see on modern ones? I've had this Tatton of Edinburgh stopwatch for a while now, but being a bit slow in the workshop today I decided to have a closer look at the Excelsior Park movement. I noticed the bridge with the engraving "spare parts" so being curious I decided to take it off the movement to have a look. Under the bridge is a small compartment containing parts to fix the movement, including a new balance staff, Genius idea that I just can't imagine any modern brand doing. Just shows how the attitude towards repairing watches has changed.
  3. Probably costs more than my house, but it's not often I get to play with watches at this level so though I would share
  4. No not a Borgel, but rather a Brook & Son submarine watch, waterproof a decade before the oyster And B is also for Blu-Tac! Over the years I have seen my fair share of bad repairs, but seriously
  5. Another old Seiko for the thread today
  6. Wearing the Tuna today, but since there was a deepsea in the office today I though I would do a side by side lume shot
  7. Another addition to the long list of watches that I love but can't afford
