  1. Citizen 67-9071 from early 1970’s. 8110a movement with sweep hand. 31 jewels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Underrated Japanese design. Citizen Monaco. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. One of my favourites ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This is the other colour variant. I have both and no matter how junk folk regard the movement as, these are beautiful watches ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good day to you all I am desperately trying to find a date disc for my Sorna worldtimer Bullhead Chronograph. It is for the EB8420 movement and most importantly has the date at 12:00 I know this is a long shot but thought perhaps someone here may be able to help. Kind regards Garp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hi All I’m trying to locate a split stem that fits the EB8420 movement and was used in the Heuer-Leonidas Jacky Ickx Easy Rider watches. The female end has lost one of its flanges to dock the male crown end. Have tried Cousins but it’s not listed and cannot find it under Heuer-Leonidas as it’s not their caliber. Any help would be gratefully received Thanks Garp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. One of my favourite watches. Beast of a thing ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I know that some of these movements are regarded as junk but this one of my favourites in my collection. While setting the time today, the crown came out and after some investigation, it appears the “lever” that allows selection between winding and setting has snapped. Please say this is a relatively generic piece and a qualified watchmaker could get this sorted. Chrono still works fine and seconds run. Movement is hacked and as such, does not advance.
  9. I recently picked up this lovely Bulova Jump Hour watch but it appears it has been fitted with an incorrect stem, and as such, the date cannot be set. The movement is a German 11COAUD and I’m having a lot of difficulty sourcing a replacement stem. Can anyone offer any leads on an original, or better still a suitable replacement. Thanks in advance Garp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks to all who answered. I guess just keeping an eye and having spare batteries to hand is the answer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have a collection of 1960’s 1970’s electric watches (mainly Bulova) as well as early Omega TC and Bulova Drivers wedges - currently all are running with fresh batteries. Would it be a better idea to store then without batteries and only power them up if I plan to wear them ? All of these watches are fickle to say the least.

  12. Designed specifically for the “arms race” - testing of the Lockheed A-12. More dependable at Mach 4.5 and High cockpit temperatures than a spring and balance movement. Fascinating history ...... oh, and Elvis had one ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Sooooooo want one of these ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Makes me smile. The fact that it still works !!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Got to be special for a Friday !!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
