  1. Thanks Simon, will send early next week. Best, Matt
  2. Hi Simon, Hope all is well.. I have a late 1960s Zodiac GMT Aerospace that has started to lose time. Would it be possible to send it to you next week to take a look at it for me? Thanks, Matt
  3. Thanks for the info, i'll have to take another photo of it wearing its new strap! Looking at the issue number A279 does that mean its likely to be an earlier model maybe?
  4. Cheers, got it from the bay! Does need a bit of work I think the cannon pinion may need looking at, apparently the hands slip from time to time
  5. Just picked this up! Luckily I was heavily dossing at work and found it before anyone else did! Note to self; work will always be there waiting, don't let it get in the way of important watch related business.
  6. I'll leave it in and see what's what in the morning! It doesn't sit on top of the battery though? More so its touching the side of it.. is that correct?
  7. @NigelpHere's a slightly closer pic of the small copper triangle, is this something that has worked it's way loose maybe?
  8. Yes it is almost, wow! Just googled it and he wore the Seiko 0674 5009...
  9. Thanks again... great link. I think its a tinted yellow filter possibly that would give it the distinctive lemony colour. But couldn't tell you for sure. I'm pretty new to vintage digital. I did have a look on the bay and found an lcd panel but not the circuit block.. I've sent an email to Cas-KerCo and we'll see if they have this 45 year old part sitting on the shelf.. Will give it a go.. if it worked out to be a straightforward fix I would be over the moon! Will get the kids in bed and then have a crack
  10. Thanks @Nigelpso from how I understand it the module from an A127 5010 movement could potentially be used to resurrect the Lemon drop?
  11. Thanks Roodie, I'll take a look at his site after I finish work for the day - its beginning to obsess me a little, actually quite a lot if I'm honest!
  12. Thanks, @kevkojak i'm tending to agree, having scoured the net, I can't find anything less than a couple of hundred quid! Though then this watch would be in better condition than any i've seen so far, so it may be worth it in the long run.. I'm wondering though if these O movements are interchangeable?
  13. Thanks - No beeps or sounds its a pretty basic watch, these old Seiko's only display the time and a back light.. Though the lights not coming on now!? I couldn't see any plastic under where the battery would sit.. I think its a bit beyond my scope at the minute to try and sort that. Its in really nice condition so I think I may look out for a battered but working donor watch at some point and attempt to swap the modules over and hopefully end up with a great watch.
  14. Thanks Gimli, thats not something i've done yet - how would one go about that?
