  1. I have several watches with (I think) ST96 movements, Most of them have broken mainsprings, I'm wondering if it's a weakness with this movement This was the latest to suffer the bad luck although it actually broke years ago, Almost straight after I bought it but it's so nice that I can't bring myse;lf to scrap it and there's no repaires that I know of near by 9ct Rodania. Hmmm, I recalled someone saying about a place at Doncaster that repairs older watches, Probably only 25 or 30 miles from me too! John
  2. Hi all I've had this watch for years, Got it for a quid at the bootsale, It runs well and keeps time to say how scruffy it is inside(Shorter hand is actually the minute hand!!)I reckon it must have been a plaything for the kids and had no crystal in or something!! Over on facebook a chap that restores watches says he will fully restore it for £600, Would the watch be worth £600 when restored or would it be a pricey project?, Is that the going rate for a full resto? (Never had one done before!!) I don't actually have £600 spare at the moment so had to tell the chap that it'll have to wait (Been off work for ten weeks after a replacement knee!!).. John

    Well Karrusel, They were supposed to be pipes for the petro-chemical industry! How were we to know that pipes for the petro-chemical industry shouldn't have an eight ton breech?! John

    Deano, I work at Forgemasters and at certain times of the year we are subject to things called Triads, This involves shutting the whole firm down (Everything electric has to be turned off) for up to two hours at peak times, If we don't then it's possible that the grid could go down, For any power we use we get charged something like thirty times the normal cost! I can't see the grid holding up if everyone suddenly acquired electric cars! John

    'Fraid not Deano I've a Midget in the garage which I started to 'Do up' back in 2015 but then my knee went kaput so didn't get the thing ready!, Had the other knee done in June this year so hopefully, I'll be able to carry on the work needed to be roadworthy next year!! This is a virt that someone did for me with Mini type indicators, I'd already removed the big ugly rubber and iron bumpers! I'd started cutting out the rot below the headlight and filled the massive hole for the indicator (Going bumperless so they need filling and then drilling for the wire to pass through!) Put a section of inner wing in as it was tinworm infested!! And plugged a small hole in the wing! I can't wait until I can get started on it again! Hopefully then i'll be able to attend the meetups!!

    I love car shows! These were at the Festival of Transport ten years ago at Graves park here in Sheffield.. I've hundreds of pics on my computer but never uploaded them to imgur!! Ps, Sorry about the low quality of the pivcs, I'm not very good with a camera John
  11. I just found out that Cousins actually sells them, Three in a pack for £1.95!! Cheers, john
  12. Many thanks for that! I think I may be best contacting Tissot for the correct size as if I have to measure it, I'm guaranteed to get it wrong!! Cheers, John
  13. Ahhh!, It went over my head i'm afraid!! John
  14. I've already glued it back on with contact adhesive so it's on firm but still waterproof as it's a rubbery glue that will seal too!! Had it on all morn and it seems to be fine!! John I don't know where you got the idea it came from a bin, It was from a local St Luke's charity shop! John
  15. The numbers on the caseback matches the watch when I google images for it, There's no threads on the case, It looks like they're all snap backs rather than threaded! E662/762M THIS ONE is the same model, There is a pic of the back and it's a snap on back John Yes
