    Thank you, it has become a bit of a fixture. which is inconvenient, as I have a small collection of other watches which I am now reluctant to rotate!

    I can understand that. But it’s also great to have a watch that you enjoy so much too

    The hands are black most of the time but turn blue when at an angle in the light.

    DONT CHUCK THE BOXES!!!!

    If you're getting rid, offering them up in the classifieds as I'm sure I'm not the only loony that will grab a box for a future (unboxed) purchase! :laughing2dw:

    No I won’t. IF I do end up getting one and it has the presentation box I’ll offer it free to anyone who wants it. :thumbsup:

    Hi Yanto

    I like them, have 5 of their watches, used to have 6 gave a quartz one to my niece who took a liking to it :laughing2dw:, seem to be well made and good movements, mine all have the Sellita SW200, haven’t had any problems with any of them so far. Definitely a step up from most of the Rotary side of the brand, although I do have a couple of Rotary watches, from the Les Originales line, that are similar quality. Although I wouldn’t pay the RRP prices, too high IMO, I got all mine in sales or new from sellers on ebay, if you are buying and see a model you like i would recommend looking about for a good price, if no reduced prices have patients and keep checking the sales and ebay.

     

    Depending on which retailer you buy from, depends on the box it comes in, some online retailers selling them at lower prices tend to use a cheaper cardboard box where as others supply them in wooden boxes, luckily all mine came in the wooden boxes, which can hold 5 watches.

     

     

     

    Hi Graham. Many thanks for the reply and information. Very helpful. The Sellita movement seems to be quite popular and reliable. I’m sure I’ve had it in a previous watch but can’t remember which one! 
    Ive seen a 1925 model that I like with Roman numerals. 
    Im really not too bothered which box it arrived in as I’m planning on emigrating next month and can’t take boxes etc with me.

     Thanks very much indeed

    Not wanting to hijack @Graham60's answer, but I've had a couple of Dreyfuss models, a quartz panda chrono (that was a really nice sporty watch, and two of their Seafarer watches (one quartz and then the automatic version). Both of them were really smart and excellent quality.

    All three came on bracelets, and whilst the bracelets were very good quality, they were those 6-7 piece jobbies that I personally felt a little dated looking, so I switched them out for leather straps for the dress watches and a para for the panda.

    They are very good quality in my opinion, I'd argue comparable in terms of quality to Certina or a nice Tissot.

    Many thanks. I’d probably end up doing the same as you the bracelet as I prefer leather too. I’ve tried a couple of Tissot models in a retailer so it’s handy to have a comparison re quality. Thanks again

    Morning. Can I ask your opinion of this brand please? I’m interested in possibly getting one as a second dress watch. Thanks

    Apologies for jumping in. Just ordered this Amphibia 100842 for a first mod project. Only looking to change bezel, insert and put on a strap. 
    Can I ask where people are buying their parts please? I’ve looked on One Second Closer, AM Watches and DLW. 
    Also is it possible to use Seiko bezel and inserts on an Amphibia please? If so which do I look for?

    Cheers in advance

    I have owned both and would say that the 007 has the edge, no handwinding of course, you have to do the 'Seiko shake', but a good looking and very well built watch 

    I had an SKX007J but sold it after 6 months. I liked it but the lack of handwinding was a nuisance.

    I have one for about 8 years, very happy with it. Last year I have also bought the NY009 "Fugu" Asia Limited Edition.

    Sorry, but I have never had the 007 to compare with.

    Hi and thanks for the reply. Does your 8 year old model have hand winding please?

  9. Afternoon all.

    Have recently been getting more and more interested in older Citizen models. I’m quite keen on getting a 1970’s NY0040. 
    Does anyone here have one (or even a slightly older version), and what are your opinions please.

    How does this model compare with Seiko’s SKX007J? 
     

    Cheers in advance
