  1. I have an SKX009J that I bought new a couple of years ago for about £150. Pretty sure it would go for more than that now.
  2. Says Miyota 8215 in the spec..... The watch is equipped with an upgraded solid stainless steel jubilee bracelet. Solid stainless steel case (standard 40mm size, thickness 13mm approximately) with Miyota 8215 automatic movement, black dial, screwdown case back, screwdown crown, 20mm lugs, fully upgraded scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass.
  3. Anyone had one? They look ok for the money. https://www.cooperwatches.co.uk/product-page/cooper-submaster-automatic-divers-watch-in-stainless-steel-with-jubilee-bracelet
  4. I’ve got a quartz - my wife bought it for me on a whim. I like it and it does get wear time. The dial has a lovely wave effect. The engraving on back is a lot nicer than the pic shows.
  5. Any GShock. It’s worse than trying to set the time on the car or oven clock.
  6. Thanks Dell - no, no joy unfortunately. Tried lifting it on both ends a little and it doesn't want to go.
  7. Well this one has arrived. It's not in terrible condition but it's not brilliant either. Problem is - it's not running. Ebay seller said it was so I'm hoping something got knocked in transit that's easy to fix. I did ask him to make sure the pendulum was removed and packed separately but he removed it, wrapped it then put it back in the back of the clock so it would have been bouncing around in there. If you manually turn the hands it chimes and strikes fine, but if you set the pendulum away it doesn't tick and doesn't 'catch' and keep going.
  8. Probably the most comfortable wearing watch I own
  9. Well, I quite like the little Smiths. I was perusing EvilBay last night and seem to have bought another one. This time a chiming one. This is starting to become a habit Will post some pics when it arrives.
  10. Thank you for the article link - interesting stuff. I took my date estimate from here http://www.electric-clocks.co.uk/SMITHS/sm-quick guide.htm
  11. Went in to buy a Rupert the Bear, and came out with Rupert and a clock.
  12. Ha - I’ve got an edifice on the way. A TK Maxx special! Will take some pics when it comes.
  13. Accidentally bought this today I think I quite like it. It has a nice character. Think it’s around 1955 to 1960? The strike is fairly quiet but has a lovely tone.
  14. I’ve got an aquaracer that’s stopped winding. There’s always been some resistance there when winding, and really I should have had it looked at when it was under warranty but never got round to it. It sets the time and date ok, but if you try to wind it there’s too much resistance and I’m not forcing it. It self winds ok and keeps time fine. Any ideas on the problem and cost to fix?
