  1. Not really sure what to do with this now, do I put some money into it and get it restored and serviced, though I think it would have been better as a pocket watch rather than a travel clock, I also think there will be a lot of unanswered questions about the manufacturer and a possible date for it. Any thoughts please! Thanks.
  2. Though in reality I and the boss (not my employer) will be going to Edinburgh again this year for our break, we have decided to give Glasgow another visit. The last time I think we stopped off in the not so nice bit and nearly go into a fight with and M&S employee on her away home, so this put me off there a bit. So can anyone tell me how to get to the nice bit if it exists please!
  3. My radio tells me nearly every morning on the way home from work that I already live in the best place in the world, but I would like to go and see Canada.
  4. Hell! no chance of a speeding ticket with that one! 197cc! It will certainly turn a few heads and get a lot of laughs though. Sort of reminds me of my grandads old 1970s disability 3 wheeler, the pastel blue one or was it green, sorry doing my best to forget the horrid death trap. Right so some more! Eat cocoa powder out of the tin ( was very young and I hoped it was a substitute for drinking chocolate, I have a sweet tooth ) Watch my boss ( now ex ) take my 2 week old Suzuki vstrom 650 up the road and try to turn around and drop it. Play dodge the dart with my brother or anyone for that matter.
  5. Thanks stdape, the movement measures 41.5mm and is definitely 7 jewels. Yes after removing the 3 screws on the front that surround the glass, the metal and glass and the face all moved at the same time telling me that all that was holding it all together was the hands (annoying) so I have just put it back together. Another strange thing I have noticed is the red line on the face at the 59 marker, not a clue what that's about. The brown leather covered wooden 3 fold box that the clock/watch is mounted in looks original and there are no makers marks on it, don't know if any of this helps our quest for answers!
  6. Quite possibly 7 jewels, my eyes aren't what they used to be! It reads non magnetic, whatever that means, I too saw this on ebay but have not found any more info!
  7. Sorry! here are some more pics Thank you both for your interest! Not really sure what non magnetic means, it looks like there are steel components in there.
  8. Hi all, my son brought this travel clock around yesterday boasting that I would not be able to find any information about it. After not finding anything on the net, I thought you people will are my best bet. So please any info on the company and a rough date would be brilliant and it will prove to my son that I am in with the right crowd. Sorry not the best picture, Its an S&S 2 jewel swiss key wound movement, tics along quite happily, its just that the hands don't go with it they seem lose. Thanks for any info!
  9. Ride up a near vertical bank on a motorcycle and just as the front wheel gets over the top the engine dies. Get loaded into an air ambulance with the medics helmet microphone stuck up my nose. Turn to sharp in a Robin Reliant. Drive at 95mph in a Robin Reliant and then a coach cuts you up on a motorway. Chase a bit of lego up an upright hoover (I was about 4 years old, yes it was still on). Will probably add to this list. Good thread!
  10. Here's my 1978 timex, not sure of the strap is original.
