  1. Another obscure brand illuminated @Always"watching" great post ....cheers
  2. A fine collection @martinzx
  3. The watch forum's resident repairer/servicer.... Is @simon2 ..... and is very reasonable .... Are you in the U.S. @Smalltimeguy ? The way it works is you post the watch to him @ essexclockandwatch and he will give you a quote..... (If only a service and no parts required.... Usually about £60 or £70 + postage)... Still would be a lot cheaper than $200-$300.... He is very well respected on here .... I have had a couple of small repairs done by him at a very reasonable price
  4. always enjoy reading your well researched posts @Always"watching" .... and have used them quite often as a reference source for watches i own or am thinking about acquiring .... great in depth knowledge thanks
  5. i hate you @Delta.....lol.... (lucky s.o.a.b).... perhaps i should have bought more tickets..... great looking watch..... well done.... wondered who won it........if you ever get fed up with it.... please let me know
  6. he he.... subject worthy of a song @Jet Jetski.... here's one of mine (all instruments/vocals courtesy of yours truly)..... written about a snail which crawled onto my windscreen one morning on the way to work.... will gladly play elton john to your Bernie Tourpin .... could be a hit.... you never know .... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMBeu8Rod50
  7. "Big Fat" thanks to @Davey P for inspiring me to acquire this "Fat Face" watch ..... Has become my default knockabout watch (21 jewel automatic seiko movt.) keeps great time and I don't have to squint my eyes to read the time ..... best £20 I ever spent https://flic.kr/p/S6yEE8 https://flic.kr/p/2fffgGe
  8. i have the very same model @ry ry ....deadly blue...... came with strange rattling noise inside inside that "iconic blue plastic case"...... opened it up and a plastic "electro magnet housing tab" fell out..... got partial refund off ebay supplier (50%).... now i use it as a cocktail shaker.... in a bizzare and dangerous game of russian roulette..... as i bravely push the red button ..... draw the watch away slowly........then run ......
  9. This HAS to be your listing on ebay Cassie? ......surely?.... if not.... there is an imposter out their lol https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Tara-all-sport-swiss-made-diver-watch-17-jewels-39mm/163670635342?hash=item261b87b34e:g:WOgAAOSw5Qpcq8au here's mine.....
  10. Is that a "cockpit" watch @rhaythorne ?.... Saw an Omega one (same specs. 30 hr non luminous)....same large numerals... R.F.Ç. (broad arrow with A beneath) think it had the same "Mark V" on the dial....sold on e-bay for a handsome price....... but Quite a bit less than some of the W.W.W. "dirty dozen".....watches ...... Which I was surprised about..... Think 150,000 W.W.W. watches were ordered by m.o.d. from the twelve suppliers.... Can't have been nearly as many "cockpit watches" made during the 1st W.W. ..... You would imagine "age ....rarity and the thought ....that the R.F.C. "cockpit watch".… may well have been held in the fist of one of the first military aviators... Shouting...."Curse you red baron"..… Well you would imagine the watch may have commanded a higher price.… it looked in good nick....seller said it was "working and keeping time"...and had "been purchased in an other auction ....."..…hmmm.?.... The Omega serial no. Checked out to 1915 …..if I remember rightly.… but it looked like the hands had been retouched and the numerals seemed a little too crisp to be right..… that was what put me off.... I may have foregone a bargain....or avoided a catastrophe.... But either way.… would have loved to have owned "one of the first military aviators watches" love your watch @rhaythorne thanks for letting us look.....beauty
  11. He he .... Not just me with poor eyesight @JayDeep.... The crack/scratch on the crystal is the second hand... Will the real scratch please step forward...(in between lugs)....
  12. oops ....my apologies @MrF-UK82 lol..... please excuse my bad eyesight and haste..... when viewing your pic....my poor vision was drawn to what i thought was "the scratch" on the crystal....have just found my glasses and realised what i thought was "the scratch"... was in fact the second hand of your watch and the scratch is in between "the lugs" probably the same as the scratch on your head after viewing my well meaning post.....found the acrylic polishing post though pinned to top of "watchmaking and repairs"....just in case you ever need it lol
  13. Is it an acrylic or mineral crystal @MrF-UK82 ?..... If acrylic it can be done using very fine wet and dry then finishing off with poly watch...there was a post on here somewhere with a step by step method but can't remember where...was pinned on....think @scottswatches knows a bit about this if I remember rightly....may have been his post....if mineral crystal I think it can be done but requires much more elbow grease ...I know taking a piece of wet and dry to a crystal sounds like madness....and the initial "fine sanding" leaves you thinking omg what have I done?.....but once it is polished out with poly watch the results are incredible.... Have used the technique and amazed by the results
  14. or god ...that sheep's fit.....let's try these wellies on @WRENCH
  15. this sheep has wellies that fit @WRENCH
