  1. Can anybody tell me anything about these two pocket watch? First one is Lamont which have Unitas movement I guess.Cant find exact match from Ranft but very close ones.Diameter of movement is about 40mm.Inside telling its pure nickel. My second guess is that it might have something to do with Nivada because they are only movements that I found connected to Compensamatic. Can anybody with more wisdom tell me if Im in right path or totally in forest?
  2. Hi all, looking for 2 Matt finish bracelet links for my Tag Heuer Aquaracer CAF101A, I think they are 18mm widest part and 9mm respectively. Thanks for any help
  3. I am looking to buy my first 'serious' watch. I love the look of Pilot watches, especially the Archimede Pilot. Anyone have any experience with these watches? If so, do you like them? How do they compare to other watches in the same sort of price range (500-1500)?
  4. I've just bought an F1 Grande Date for the second time this year and after wearing and owning quite a few watches over the last 10 months I've come back to this because I really do love it! So to show my appreciation I thought I'd have a stab at a bit of a write up. It's my first one so here goes.... The Heuer Watch Company was founded in 1860 by Edouard Heuer who opened a watchmaking workshop in St-Imier, a village in the Swiss Jura region. Heuer watches soon became recognised for a high level of accuracy and workmanship which were perfect for the timing of sporting events.
  5. Hello everyone, I'm relatively new to watch collecting, and new to these forums, so I thought I would take advantage of the massive wealth of knowledge on this site. I have a decent collection going with some lovely Swiss pieces and a couple of excellent Japanese ones. What I really want to get into though is vintage pieces, as the stories they can tell and their character are unrivalled. I already have a rather fetching vintage Hamilton, but what I would love to add to my collection is a vintage omega. Omega is a watch brand with an incredibly rich history in horology, and I si
  6. Here is my review of the new CT60 3-Hand from Tiffany and Co - <link removed> What do you all think ?
  7. What is this Leonidas watch worth ? It says Americ Metal on the closure ,on the back it says Leonidas St Imier Suiza Fundada en 1841, my dad bought this watch in Spain in the 60's .thank you
  8. I am so giddy, About time I bought a Swiss movement, will post pics if I learn how to do it when it comes Told the wife I bought a grass trimmer for our holiday home and btw bought a new watch..... "Will it cost more than a new washing machine?"...."no love it doesn't"......"ah that's ok then " Happy bunny!!!!!!!
  9. Hi I need some help deciding between new Rolex Daytona ceramic white face, new Santos 100 carbon and Jacob and co epic x, I love all of them but I can't make my mind, I already have previous Daytona black face, hublot black magic, Cartier calibre. Which one would you choose.
  10. Hi this watch was given to me from my grandfather. I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me anything they know about this watch (Age, model, fake/real, value, etc). Thank you http://imgur.com/a/Cgmyr
  11. My Mum just gave me this watch that was in Dad's things (he died a way a few years ago). It came from a friend of his who was in the RAF. The guy at the Omega shop thinks it might be an RAF watch, but the numerals look unusual. Anyone know what it is? Isn't it missing the second hand? I think it looks cool and will get it serviced and cleaned up, then buy a strap (thinking brown leather, but any other strap advice?). Thanks!
  12. I was looking at watches on amazon and i stumbled across a sturhling grand regetta for 60$ reg 695$ i thought its too good to be true and it claims to be a swiss made quartz movement. After some research it seems to be a good watch however i am still wondering if its a good deal also the company who is selling it on amazon is 100% legit and credited. Another reason why i am kinda debating on getting this watch is because i also like the seiko sna 411 and its flight master beauty, so should i wait and save for the seiko and get something i will really enjoy or get a steal on a quality sturhlin
  13. Dear Forum good day Another newbie here, I have trawled some old posts and perhaps my quest may remain a forlorn hope, I seek replacement watch back removal tool for 1970's Omega Dynamic Geneve ( the red plastic thing) and possibly "coraform?" strap ( think think not available now) leather replacements are somewhere .....? I note from posts I have reviewed from quite some years past Roy from Brid suggested he may know of a source .......but chances are it's dried up now......strange thing is that my origins are Nth Yorks but now am close to Geneva ...and still here have not been su
  14. Hi all I'm helping my father clear out the loft of a few possessions,, hoping to raise some cash for him. We came across this rotary ladies gold watch which he thinks with his cousins and would like me to sell it for him. It's 9 carat gold case and bracelet as well as the safety chain. It was assayed in Birmingham 1964, and that Is as much as we know. Not wanting to under sell it for him, could anybody tell me any more about it and it's possible value? many thanks regards Dee
  15. Folks, I have had my Carerra 1887 less than one year (Aug2015) and I have had to send it back twice. The first time the anti glare protection film totally deteriorated which they replaced but when it came it wouldn't tell the time!? To be exact it ran about 2 hours fast in the space of a 12 hour time period. I have now sent it back and they have had it coming up on 3/4 weeks. I have really lost confidence in the timepiece and they want nothing to do with it. Should they not do something extra??? Any of your thoughts would be great! Cheers Richard
  16. Hi there, first post so hope this is in the correct place! I'm a big watch fan and am looking to buy a striking chronograph as one of my more regular watches. I'm really torn between the Bremont ALT1-WT in BK and the Heuer 80th or 81 (silver or anthracite dial in each respectively). I know know bremont also is a world timer, but that's not really a particular driver for me, just torn between the styles. I have a couple of tags already but have not had any experience with the heuer. Also have never seen the Heuer 80th in the flesh! Both beautiful watches but any thoughts?
  17. I have had this Grana KF320 in a drawer since the 50s when I had a new balance staff fitted in it . I now want to service it but the dial is not good and I am wondering if anyone has a flat 27.44mm Dial maybe even for a Certina as it is possible that this watch has the wrong dial?

  19. Hi Everyone I just wanted to introduce Mulco watches to you, design to detail, and top quality, available on sundialwatches.co.uk/mulco twitter@sundialwatches FB fb.com/sundialwatchesuk Since its creation in 1958 by Mr. Muller (Muller and Co.), Mulco quickly became a prestigious brand that stood head to head with other competitive Swiss watches. With its suggestive designs and impeccable quality, this exclusive brand superseded the expectations of the demanding European, American and South American markets. Mulco maintained its place in the market until it was bought by one of its co
  20. I am looking at buying my wife a watch. Criteria from her are two-tone and a metal strap. I know she would love an auto. Do you have an informed opinion on any of these three? I know some on here own the gents version of these watches. Build quality? value for money? My leaning is towards the Oris as it is slightly different and the pointer for the date is unusual. Last consideration - this watch is likely to lead a hard life! BR
  21. Hey everybody! I'm sure you are all you aware of how frustrating it can be when your TAG starts ticking every 4 seconds. You know its time to get the battery change. Then the ultimate question is, where to go? If you go to Jewellers they will quote you around 3 weeks and charge you around £70. If you go to the local shoe repairer they will more than likely charge you £5 but will damage your watch. Here at Ross Watch Repairs RWR our prices for a TAG Heuer watch battery replacement starts only at £29.99. This is including resealing, pressure testing, 12 month guarantee and return posta
  22. Hi all, I have acquired a J W Benson Pocket watch which I don't know a great deal about. I believe it is rose gold and is dated 1871. It is in pretty good condition and works fine. It has "swiss made" & "15 jewels" engraved on the inner mechanism. Any info on the watch would be greatly appreciated and any indication of what it might be worth also Thanks All Eric
  23. Haven't posted an incoming on here for a while (couldn't access the site) but here's today's: Tag Heuer Carrera 1887 bullhead. Completely unexpected as I had my heard set on a JLC Squadra but once I saw it in an AD and tried it, I was hooked. AD had it in for three years and it hadn't sold so I negotiatied a deal and slept on it. Then it came up in the sales and got an even better deal so it was a no brainer really. Wears extemely comfortably due to the lugs following the wrist and the case being angled upwards. The amount of detail in the dial is awesome too, lots go
  24. How do you think watch sellers should collect and use customer data to achieve better sales and ensure the best customer experience? What would you, customers, like to see there?
  25. Hi. I have two vintage watches that I inherited a few years ago and I wanted to know if I should have them insured. The first one is a Fulgens 18 carat gents watch. It also states "17 rubis" on the face which I know means 17 rubies. The reverse has the hammer stamp with 158 stamped in it. It also ha "6 508" stamped on it and a small scroll with the letters "C G" in it. The second one is a Avia gents watch. It has a stainless steel back. It has "17 jewels" and "incabloc" on the face. The reverse states "10003" stamped on it. I know the first one is worth more, but that's
