  1. Being of a certain age, I only think of "Adam Adamant Lives!", a TV series from the 60's.
  2. A bit of Googling appears to indicate that Omega would charge £450 to service it. "Uninteresting" watches might well be interesting to the forum members here!
  3. I like it. Nice simple looking watch. You won't get any valuation info from anyone on this site. The usual suggestion is to look at auction sites and see what similar watches have sold for. You may get info on servicing such a watch though.
  4. Blimey! I like all of the preceding watches. Thanks folks. Here's my humble Mondaine offering. I must pop the back sometime to see what's in it.
  5. Thanks for the name check! Like the Relliac too.
  6. Many. many, years ago my mate had an Omega. It was running OK, but he wanted to get it serviced. He contacted Omega and they said it would be 6 weeks. He didn't want to be without his watch for that long so he said, "Put a note on the "watches to be serviced" shelf and call me when it's the next but one to be serviced. I'll then bring it in." They absolutely refused to play that game, so he was without it for ages.
  7. If you fancy getting a cheaper watch to practice strap changing on there's a nice Casio Marlin. Might be fun with a blue strap instead of the black one? https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/casio-duro-dive-watch-mdv106-1a
  8. Square Tag Professional Golf watch. What! Not a Kered?
  9. In the mid-1980's I went on holiday to Soviet Central Asia with Clive Sinclair's ex-wife*. She explained they had had a divorce party that cost £25K. * To be accurate, and for the avoidance of doubt, I went with my then girlfriend and two friends. Ann was part of the rest of the group on the tour.
  10. Today I'll be wearing my Timex Marquette. 1950's with an M21 movement. I previously identified this as a Monroe but, having done yet more research, the Monroe is much squarer.
  11. That's all true, but the guy was, sadly, offering neither scenario. Yes, a nearby watch repairer would be handy!
  12. I asked an eBay seller about the meaning of "serviced" for a watch I was looking at, and it was effectively just a clean and polish of the outside. That's like taking your car to be serviced and them only doing the valet.
  13. My best buy? Easy. It's the solid 9K gold Kered that cost me £18. Didn't know it was gold when I bought it, so that was a nice bonus. It means you have a watch for every day of the week and twice on Sunday!
