  1. I'm sure you're right. Just thought I would try as a last resort though.
  2. After 3 or 4 house moves over the last 20 years, I've lost my spare links. Anybody got any for this Accurist? It looks crap with a black leather strap!
  3. Wiki has a section on Red Army awards. It seems they have a badge of Excellence for absolutely every trade in the army, Tank drivers, tractor drivers, sharpshooters and right down to bakers and boy scouts. The inscription on your watch is the same as on their badge of excellence for shooters which was first issued in 1942. Nothing definitive of course, may be just coincidence.
  4. Thanks again. Although I never actually went away, just missed this thread somehow
  5. Bottom word is ''pistol'' and top right is ''shooting''
  6. Gentlemen, I can not believe this thread has passed me by and I have somehow stumbled upon it again some 12 months later! My sincere apologies for not acknowledging the comments above. I can only think I posted this one evening when I was on a mission to empty the Vodka bottle and then forgot all about it. The clue is in my comment about ''rhodium'' I hate not acknowledging posts.
  7. I can see where the value is in a mechanical high end watch. I struggle to see how they justify top end in a watch that has, ultimately, a throwaway quartz movement.
  8. Itsa Bitza. Correct ETA 2750 but from a Pontiac watch. Incorrect minute hand. I wonder if the case has been polished to remove serial numbers and then restamped. I think I would be concerned about the date. There is a rollcall of Hamilton models on MWR forum, listing model, year and number manufactured but the earliest is 1973. Dial looks original though.
  9. The watch looks correct although looks like the case back has been polished and it may not have the correct minute hand. Normally the minute hand is straight and not the same shape as the hour hand. The case back is normally grey and slightly rough showing the machine turning. Those are not reasons though to call it a fake. 71 is earlier than the one's I have seen but that is not a definitive opinion. The fakes I have seen are obvious though. They normally have slotted screw backs, not front loading cases and a recent one had a 91 date. Cheap Chinese copies. I have a completely authentic 1975 6bb 'Geneve'.
  10. I have a 1974 6bb which is not a screwback. In fact it doesn't have a removeable case back, the movement comes out the front of the watch. I thought, (mistakenly it seems), that all Hamiltons of that era were the same. Thanks for the info.
  11. Are there any Hamilton Military issued watches with screw backs? I am talking about the 60/70's era.
  12. The untreated parts of oak looks like French Oak to me. French Oak has a sort of ''aged'' patina to it as opposed to English and American which has more of a bleached look. I have some furniture in French Oak which I made while living in France.
  13. My Dad wore his Cyma that he was issued with virtually every day for about 45 years until it wore out. He was 87 when he died. He bought a 2nd Cyma from an army surplus in the 1960's and gave it to me sometime in the 1980's. I wore it on and off but not often now because of it's value and if I was to be honest, I just pick up one of my quartz 'cos I can't be arsed to keep winding them
  14. The 3D pen I got is a more expensive one with attachments. It contains a hot wire for cutting foam and polystyrene (watch box inserts maybe), a soldering tip, wood burning tip and a hot knife to smooth down the objects you make.
