  1. 1960's Automatic Seiko 6106-8000 Have a great weekend guys!
  2. Ditto...but I do have an Air King already, and I do want a Sub (No Date- No Brainer)
  3. I've already reported the theft to Kojak, I expect he'll make an arrest shortly. thanks to liveaboutdotcom for the jpeg of a lollipop.
  4. I went on to the concise history of RTL watches, it says that this watch was stolen? Maybe Roy needs to update that history or you will have Cagney & Lacey after you
  5. Old pic, but this today. Seiko 7T62-0CV0 'Daytona', don't know why Seiko collectors gave it this name, it's not much like a Daytona, but it is one of my favourite 7T62's
  6. Timex are putting out some good looking watches, nice to see a brand that I almost exclusively wore during the 1990's doing so well. I'm fairly new to orange watches so I thought I would start with the most orangey orange in the orange colour range, and boy is it orange! 7T62, Seiko, Orange...what's not to love??? (maybe the integrated bracelet?)
  7. You're not wrong, just about the most orangey orange I have ever seen.
  8. Honest...I had my orange dial watch on before I had even visited the forum, great minds think alike or great minds think alike?
  9. Something a little bit orange today...Seiko 7T62-0GM0
  10. I don't own a Longines, but I agree with the other people that have mentioned Longines. Their Heritage range have some stunners in there, but buying watches is a very personal thing. I would suggest looking at getting a birth year watch, there is something quite special about wearing something that rolled off the production line the moment you took your first breath. Welcome to the best forum on the internet! Enjoy your watch journey.
  11. 7T32-7F90, Made August 1998, A very chunky 7T32, from Germany. Have a great Thursday guys.
  12. Hi Frizz, Doesn't look like there is a rush to help you out, and to be very honest I can't really help either. I have only ever changed round, flat, mineral crystals so your crystal swap looks to be a wee bit more 'involved' than anything I've done. My guess is that the crystal is glued in position rather than being retained by a pressure ring. There is a dedicated repair advice section which may be a better place to ask for advice. Best of luck.
  13. I will not complain again, I have a decent number to change, but not that amount. On daylight saving... I feed the birds in my garden every morning, they chirp outside the bedroom window at the same time every morning asking to be fed. My observation is that in a bird's mind daylight saving doesn't exist. Time may be relative, relative to how hungry the birds are.
  14. I bought a SARB 017, SARB 033, SARB 035, and a SARB 065 for the grandchildren (one each) I thought they might be worth something in 20 years time as totally unused all as full sets. Who knows what they will be worth long term, but a little bit more interesting than just transferring some money into their bank accounts. I have been really tempted to try them on, but I have managed to resist...so far.
  15. I didn't even know they made this version, it's a cool looking version, beautiful dial, and I think I prefer it without the compass tbh.
  16. Totally agree with you, I can see why people like them, but they are just not for me. Jody on Just One More Watch loves that style, and I know they sell by the bucket load. Personally I prefer this for £33.00 (when 4mazon have it on sale)
  17. Have a great Sunday...nice sunny in Moray today.
  18. Two for me, both Seiko watches from September 1967, the one above, and a 7625-8041 which I am going to sell as I just don't like it as much as I love the watch above. The 7625 is a good watch, but I like the fact that the 6106 hacks, and the date change is much easier. Enjoy your weekend
  19. Month and Year for this one... Seiko 6106-8000 made September 1967 Not bad for 52 years old, same can't be said for the owner
  20. I am currently developing a fatness tracker, I am worried about calling it either BIT FAT or FAT SH!T, my concern is that FIT BIT may take me to court. You enjoy your 'watch' Davey, even though that watch can do more things than Batman's utility belt.
  21. Just like the Seiko Kinetic Auto Relay, sit it a drawer and it sleeps for upto 4 YEARS and springs back to life (and the right time) with a little shake. A very clever watch movement.
