  1. This was given to me, and i have no idea about anything. Anyone know a background or a link to tell me what the watch is (beside it being a Mathey-Tissot) such as what model? What year it was made? What value does it have?
  2. Hi, I have being trying to find out about this watch, the manufacturer, where, year of manufacture etc., but nothing comes up online. Its 18k old case with patent and brevet stamped on the crown. On the dial is the name Neutral. Thanks for any information
  3. Hello, I am new to this site. But I have inherited these two vintage ladies watches and was wondering ifanyone could enlighten me as to their value. I think they are from the 60's and the UNO one is 9ct gold case and strap. The Everite is just 9ct gold case and rolled gold strap. They are both working perfectly. The seconds hand on the UNO is missing so ive ordered a replacement for it. I look forward to hearing any information you may have. Many thanks, Alison
  4. This is my first Luxury watch and I am very excited to share my experience with you all. This is the two-tone TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500m Ceramic/18k Gold Bezel Calibre 5 with 18k gold two-tone bracelet. Some people compliment it but others just strictly do not like it based on the color. However, this piece is unique and I'm in love with it. What do all of you watch enthusiasts think about it?
  5. In the 2 watches thread Bond makes an interesting point that if you spank £150k on a car and then get a watch that you can hardly read the time on to match does it matter? Sometimes watches are simply pieces of art and excercises in engineering, I give for you an example of the Titanic DNA day & night watch. http://blogs.wsj.com/wealth/2008/04/25/the-300000-watch-that-doesnt-tell-time/ one balance wheel turns in the AM and the other turns in the PM, if you had the money would you still get it? The only thing that would put me off getting this (other than the price!!) is the fact it is mad
  6. Hi Guys. I bought a vintage Jaeger Lecoultre, but i dont know much about it maybe you guys can help me with some info. Its a mens watch. The watch is made of 14 carat gold The case is 25mm wide without the crown, 27 with crown. The height is 25mm and 30mm with the lug. *What would this watch be worth? *From witch date is it? *Witch model is this? *Will the value go up on this watch? I hope you guys can help me with some info, Thnx. Greetings, Vintage3489
  7. Guys, I love the aesthetics of this watch. The two-tone is not overwhelming as there is a great proportionate combination between the two colors. The black face is really nice. I love the skeleton at the 12 O'clock. The band feels much better quality than my Tag Heuer Carrera and Aquaracer. I'd have to say that I really love this piece. The engineering behind this simple, classic, classy, piece was carefully thought out. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. It looks wonderful on my wrist and already got a dozen comments on wearing this piece. Let me know what you guys think?
  8. Hi. I just came across this automatic watch and am curious if anyone has details or info on this brand and model. It is a Moviga Chronotech Automatic. Top of case tests to be at least 14k gold. Runs.
  9. Hello All, This is my first Luxury watch and I am very excited to share my experience with you all. This is the two-tone TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500m Ceramic/18k Gold Bezel Calibre 5 with 18k gold two-tone bracelet. Some people compliment it but others just strictly do not like it based on the color. However, this piece is unique and I'm in love with it. What do all of you watch enthusiasts think about it?
  10. Other opinions on the watch I posted? I would say 98% of people I ask about this watch tell me that it's ugly. Is it really that bad looking? I also have a Movado 800 Series Chrono and I was told that it looks better than the new Tag Heuer that I posted. Is it true? Tell me what your thoughts are please.
  11. Still Learning and trying to remove a movement from a Unicorn Watch I have removed both the case screws and the stem. However the movement does not want to lift out of the case. Do I need more force? or have I missed something? I am always wary of applying too much force, but dont see any thing else holding the watch.
  12. Been waiting for this since Feb/March. I've eluded to it in a few posts and it finally made it! New Arrival and I am Absolutely Ecstatic! Door jams - BEWARE! Have not seen anything posted on here for these but I pre-ordered mine back in Feb/ March. It is the Helberg CH1 and it is not for the faint of heart... Or Wrist! I absolutely love it and have had an extremely hard time keeping my mouth shut about it coming. For those that are not familiar... it is an homage to the Rolex Deep Sea Special which made the most incredible journey on Trieste down to the Challenger Depth (36K feet!)
  13. Can anyone offer info on a Moviga brand Chronometre Watch? I would be interested to understand value and offer it for sale as well. I will post a picture if interested. The watch is a Moviga Chronotech chronometre Automatic with date window.
  14. Hey everyone, I got my first pocketwatch yesterday for Christmas. My great grandfather bought it in the early 1930s in Amsterdam. Why is it so hard to find any information about Ronson pocket wacthes? I can't even find an auction online about one. Am I just not looking hard enough? Anyway attached are some photos of it. It seems to keep time really well and is in good condition. Kees my grandfather told me it was his dads everyday watch not his fancy one, apparently that one was lost quite a few years ago.
  15. Hello chaps, chatting to the father-in-law last night in the pub and the topic of watches came up, he mentioned his fathers watch that he has in a drawer, a non-running approx 1950s swiss made Roamer manual wind and wants to fix it up, I have done a bit of digging but cant find anything about the watch at all. Perhaps someone here can help? with info on the watch and where best to get it fixed up? I know its not worth much but its sentimental. Greatly appreciated.
  16. Hi there I bought a Longines watch from a seller in Hatton Garden, he has said the watch was discontinued, although I’m unable to find it online. I would be extremely grateful if you could help me find out a bit more about the model? The two photos are here: Thanks very much
  17. Hi All from the two swiss brands Edox and Mido do any users on here have any personal experience on these brands Your comments greatly appreciated. thanks
  18. The Certina DS Action Diver Automatic is a watch that has been on my radar lately. Today I went to the store to have a look at it and try it on the wrist. They only had the titanium version, and I'm more interested in the steel version... but else I thought it looked great. It's very easy to read, and it didn't feel big at all - something I was a bit worried about since the case diameter is 43.2mm. This might just be my next watch. My dream watch is still the Omega Planet Ocean, but that will not happen in a long time. It seems like this could be a nice diver until then. Anyone here has
  19. I've just got hold of an interesting old chronograph in good condition. I've been looking for a Lemania-powered chronograph for some time, but the prices of the Omegas, Heuers, Sinns etc. have been quite high. Lemania_Chrono_03small by wotsch2, on Flickr This Lemania-branded chronograph came up Buy-it-now on eBay and, I was rather surprised that a somewhat cheeky offer was accepted. It has a Lemania 5012 movement inside, which is the 5100 without 24-hour subdial. Lemania_Chrono_01small by wotsch2, on Flickr While waiting for its arrival, I've been looking for information about
  20. Hello, I am looking for an everyday smart casual watch that can also be used as a dress watch. The brands that I found to be within my budget are Maurice Lacroix, Raymond Weil and Longines. I also see Movado, Tissot and Mido are within price range but as I read in articles these brands are Low-Mid range while the others mentioned are High range...for this I am not sure so this is why I am here to ask if you have a suggestion from the list or a brand that I don't know of? Thanks
  21. Hello All, I recently bought several CWC G10 watches. I read a brilliant article on here on how to remove the scratches from the crystal. Two of the faces have what appears to be rust on the batons and I would like to remove the crystal but can't quite figure out if I need to get the back off first. I don't have any tools as yet but am keen to have go. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Hiutsuri
  22. Hi everyone..I'm from the Lake District Cumbria and have always been interested in Tissot watches. A Seastar Seven was my first watch some 50 years ago..Yes I'm a grumpy too. I have a modest collection of Tissot's and one Le Cheminant. photos to follow.
  23. I've not been very active on the forum for a few months - sometimes absent, sometimes just reading, putting a couple up for sale and occasionally posting. Things are busy at the moment and there hasn't exactly been a fountain of funds for new watches of late. But I just picked up a beauty with a story behind it and I think the bug is back again. At least for long enough to write this post, anyhow... 1960s Hamilton Intra-Matic Here's the little beauty. Intra-matics00small by wotsch2, on Flickr This is a Hamilton Intra-matic from (I think - see below) the late 60s. It's in beautifu
  24. My father recently gave me an old Mido Ocean Star Datoday that he acquired secondhand about 35 years ago and it probably dates back to the early 70s or possibly the 60s. The watch itself has remained unused for a good 30 years and was left in a bedside drawer. Last week after pulling out the watch we set the time & date and we saw it ran perfectly for three days, however the clasp is missing the small pin that would allow it to stay closed on the wrist so we popped into a local jeweller who seemed to get very excited the moment he saw it and shuttled off into a back room before coming
  25. Hey again guys! Basically I have got a new job and I don't spend much (I'm a youth xD) but I am looking to get myself a nice watch, a respectable watch, to go with my Invicta (queue the hatred). Now I've estimated quite a lot of unused cash by Christmas time but I'd rather not get rid of it all in one go... I'm looking for a Mid priced watch (£300-£400 would be nice), preferably swiss, maybe automatic... metal, hopefully sapphire crystal, not bothered about a chronograph... not too big and just as long as it looks appealing :) Any suggestions leave bellow :) Thanks :D
