  2. Not had much time for watches lately or anything else as building work to the house has taken over but did manage to acquire this Strela 3017 arrow recently , been looking for a while and this one seemed to tick all the boxes , another space watch for the collection
  3. Lazy day today as I feel like crap , with its very complicated dial and much as a like this watch it doesn’t get much wrist time as I can’t read the time without glasses . That’s old age for you
  4. Out in town taking back Christmas presents this morning so a good excuse to wear my current fave the sinn 142 just making it into the oldies

  6. Yes it drives me mad Bonklips are so much easier
  7. Fitting day to be worn, my speedy fitted with a Forstner band
  8. Beer time again after laying yet more concrete blocks for a retaining wall in the garden , next like a lobster back like Quasimodo bought this Military strap for the Sturmanskie , it’s had a life but at 20 odd quid all the way from the Ukraine you can’t really grumble , lugs aren’t quite right but hey ho
  9. All day outside labouring for the brickies building my garage extension wearing the g shock of course which is now covered in pug , now time for a beer and a sit down ...... Bit of a orange theme going on here so thought I would join in , new strap for the Sinn arrived this week
  10. I love a watch with a bit of provenance , 1989 G10 for men bought from a ex squadie that did a few tours of Iraq wearing it

  13. Finally come in from outside so the G Shock has been put to bed , time to cook the Sunday roast
  14. Can’t remember if I’ve shared this before but I am vice chairman of a club and have been collecting and showing old Stationary engines for years , this one weights in at 2 1/4 ton built in 1909 and is rated at 10hp , runs on paraffin and needs a blow lamp to start it , I’m the second owner from new

  17. Bought my first Transit diesel tipper new in 1988, had many more since and took delivery of my new Transit in January , gone through various engine variants all diesel and all including the new one with a smaller 2 litre engine have returned an average of 22mpg , so much for technology and more efficiency
  18. Not had wrist time for a while , best give it a whirl
  19. long term plans are to leave it as it I’m not going to repaint they are only original once , there is no rust anywhere it’s super solid , the engine will be “ hopped up” ie retain the flathead v8 but add some speed parts , heads ,carbs, cam , it already has a split exhaust system , I will update the brakes to 39 hydraulic and have got all the parts to do a period conversion I bought while it was in the states it will be used and abused in all weathers and going to drive the sh#t out of it
  20. Been enjoying my New acquisition that has kept me busy for the last few weeks I have just imported it from. Kansas , 1938 Ford with 32000 miles from new sat in a barn for 55 years had a gentle recommissioning and its first wash since the late fifties , runs and drives great and still on cable brakes it’s an original one old lady owner believe it or not
