  1. My mother has a Citizen watch which needed a new battery. My father removed the old one so that I could replace it but lost it. I have read the inscription on the back but can not work out what battery I need. This is what is on the back: 3220-893476SMW 9081571 32-9568 My mum really wants her watch working again. Could anyone please help me?
  2. I'm new to this site. Is "Honour" or "Super Sleuth" his user name? How do I contact a particular member on here? This all seems very clandestine as if I am a character in a John le Carré novel looking for "Mr Big" and only have his code name.
  3. Does anybody know anything about "Visible" watches? I have seen one recently which is obviously of some age and of high quality. It has a a mechanical Swiss movement (poss 17 jewels) and 51589 on one of the cogs. The back (at least) is silver and bears the hallmark and silversmith's mark on its inside with the number 417635 and the number 230 beneath it. That is all I can offer at the moment but I may be able to get some photographs shortly. In the meantime any information about this piece would be welcomed especially the history of the marque, its approximate age and if it has high enough prestige to make it worth pursuing.
  4. I have an Accurist ms040 with a MIYOTA 6R29 movement. What's puzzling me is "what does the button do?" The button is spring loaded so is obviously intended to make only a momentary contact. Inside the case this mysterious button moves an, apparently electrical contact on the movement itself. I have found diagrams of the 6R29 on MIYOTA'S website clearly showing this but no explanation as to its purpose. I have attached photos to clarify what I'm going on about and hope someone can help me. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156181643381647&set=a.10150506588146647&type=3&eid=ARBG5UMp054p-aBOmX8V_SAc5Y3ctXVuFr3afTZa97Ilskax5TJP3ckVm_xUKH7DHAj_VAa76yQhs2Ne Oooops! I'm just leaning my way around here. I'll try photo again in a minute.
  5. I have recently acquired a Junghan's "TITAN" quartz watch. I have heard of Junghan's before but never actually owned one.On the back is 47/2436 408. The watch has a black dial with three hands and date. There are logos on the Face back and crown. The movement is a Miyota GL10.Could anyone tell me more about this watch such as approx date it was made, did it originally have a strap or a bracelet and is this the original movement?
  6. I really can't work out how to include pictures with a past. Is there an idiot's guide somewhere?
  7. Do I need a mobile phone to use Instagram?
  8. How do I attach photos to a topic?

  10. I have recently acquires a Junghan's "TITAN" ladies quartz watch and would like to pick someone's brains. All the numbers and logos seen to be authentic and in the right places. The movement is a Miyota GL10 quartz. Is this a movement Junghan's is known to use and, if so, when? Its the first Junghan's watch I have ever had so any advice will be gratefully received. Phil
  11. I'm Phil. I often buy watches at auctions and boot sales etc. normally the are in the mid range (Rotary, Accurist, etc.). However, I have recently acquired a Junghan's "TITAN" ladies quartz watch and have a query regarding the movement. What part of this site should I go to to raise my question or can I just ask here? Thanks Phil
