  1. I think that is the most likely scenario, Swan Hunters bought a batch of the watches in the early 1960's and distributed them as people reached the long service milestones. Good to see earlier predictions of the movement inside the watch to be accurate also - thanks all!
  2. Just a slight update in case anyone is interested. This morning I found the below link: https://www.vintage-wristwatches.co.uk/watches-catalogue/archived-watches/rolex-watches-archive/1960s-9ct-gold-round-vintage-rolex-precision-watch/ Interestingly, this is the exact watch I have and has been inscribed by the same company for the same long service award. I'm still struggling to find this exact watch anywhere else online. Could it be the watch was made for the company? (Unlikely in my head but nothing surprises me in the horology world these days). Also, does anyone recognise the movement and have any info on it?
  3. Fantastic condition for its age, I like it!
  4. I ordered one for my old Rolex a few weeks back (16mm strap) and was extremely impressed with Steveostraps. Custom made, tell him what you’re after and he will have it rustled up and posted out very quick - and at a reasonable price. Worth every penny!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. What platform are you buying it through (i.e. eBay, Gumtree, Facebook, Chrono24). Looks a cracking watch but remember, if it seems too good to be true....
  6. The Le Locle is a great shout and a very nice dress watch.
  7. I’ve eventually got my new strap fitted (steveostraps), big thanks to [mention]simon2 [/mention] for help with the spring bars. I love it and it’s great to be preserving the original leather strap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Also interested to see this movement. That watch is a belter!
  9. I could sort his accounts out but I don’t know my ass from my elbow when it comes to watches...do you think that will work in an interview? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Simon - you're a saint. I really appreciate it.

    Spring Bars

    Hi Simon, I've just bought a new strap for my watch which is being delivered in a few weeks time. I've just had delivery of the Bergeon spring bar removes so have taken the current strap off. One of the spring bars is standard and one is flanged and both look questionable so wanted to replace them. When I'm buying them online (I've been looking at HS Walsh), is the size I need relating to the lug width or the length of the spring bar? My lug widths are 16mm, do I order a 16mm spring bar or do I need an 18mm spring bar (the relaxed size of the ones I've taken out) Apologies for the potentially stupid questions, I'm very much a novice! Cheers!
  12. This tension is killing me. Did you buy a watch? What shops did you try? Did they offer discount? What did you try on? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
