  1. Good afternoon, Can you please help with explaining the function of the extra "second hand like" pointer with red pointer. It advances by one every hour? Thank you https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=parnis+automatic+watch+cream+dial&safe=strict&client=ms-opera-mobile&channel=new&espv=1&prmd=sivn&sxsrf=ALeKk02-0Rc4w0-hYE3nFpPEMCmVbV2Opg:1609081806024&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiMnNnruO7tAhVoQEEAHZ7nDHEQ_AUoAnoECA0QAg&biw=393&bih=685#imgrc=BjIKiPRoat-TDM
  2. Very glad to have the Opportunity to write here. We are HTD (Horological Tools Department) Watches. We are a Microbrand from Florence. We started this fantastic Journey in the watch industry 2 years ago, and now we are out with our first collection. In these 2 Years we have built relationship with The Man: Renzo. He is a watchmaker. He was the official Responsible for Zenith watch inspections in Florence from the 60's to 80's and the first Italian inspector for El Primero. After this he decided to open his own laboratory. We met him because we were determined to do something special
  3. Choosed some colorful straps for winter, whats yours ?
  4. I have now purchased two clock rings on ebay and the charging pad to charge the ring and set the time was not included as it was supposed to be in both cases. I have searched everywhere I can think of to find a place where I can purchase a charging pad that can charge the ring and set the time but with no luck. Can anybody out there tell me where I can purchase one of these charging pads? Thanks a lot Ray
  5. Back from the Post Office, picked up new arrival from China. Seagull Chinese Military 'Tank Commander' Watch D813.581 (Cal ST2553)
  6. Does any one have knowledge of setting up the digital side of this watch. It is not intuitive or maybe it is damaged. The analogue side is working well.
  7. Hello All, We would like to introduce our brand - V Koncept. I'm Raymond who focus on chronograph watch design and production. We have finished an eye-catching chronograph watch and it will be launch in kickstarter at 20 Dec 2018. The main selling point of V Koncept Chronograph Watch is offering 3 different color cases and 4 different color dials, plus various style straps for customers' choice. We would propose the major specifications of the watch : CASE MATERIAL : Japanese 316L High Quality Stainless Steel CASE DIAMETER : 43mm DIAL CRYSTAL : Special Pot Sapphir
  8. Young lad across the street asked me to look at his watch, digital works fine, the analogue does nothing. New these watches are less than a tenner. To my surprise when I opened it up I found only one battery a CR2016. his mum gave me the instructions that says it should have a CR2025. I am not an expert on Quartz watches but I had expected it to run off two batteries. Any one know anything about these.
  9. A question that, I think, can only be answered by experienced people...! I am not a watch guru, but was recently taken with a range of cheap Chinese watches which have the movement mounted in a thin bar running across the face - the rest of the watch being empty and see-through, with both face and rear glass. See here for example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/FORSINING I have a couple of these (two slightly different types!) at a cheap price as a dress watch, and am curious about one of them, as it appears to have no manual wind facility. Both are automatic - but while one has the t
  10. I Bought Chinese Watch Few Days Ago. And I Heard that They Use DG2813 Movement (From Dixmont Guangzhou) on Watch Some People Said to me "That is Copy of Miyota 8215" It' it True? And It is Reliabe?

  13. Hi all, Over three weeks I have on my wrist 'the watch of my taste', and I'd like to present it to you: It's a long story, beginning in 2012. While discussing the new '2012 forum watch', a suggestion for tourbillon was one of the variants. Maybe because of the price, but it didn't get enough support, and another type was chosen. But a commitee decided to continue a side project, if at least 50 members sign-in. The signing took a while, so the minimum number was redused to 40. Well, slowly, but at last the number needed has been reached and the project began. One by one, the willing t
  14. Hi, I'd like to show my new income - Shanghai chronograph SH9001 This watch caught my attention long ago, but the price was too much for me. Even with a discount, the price is ¥6 800.00 - on T-Mall , plus shipping, agent fee, custom taxes, VAT, etc... But incidentally I saw an offer in a forum exactly for it! The description was "like new, with small issue". And the issue is that the quick-set of the Day is not working. Using regular setting via the crown, the Day changes. The seller suggested that the issue happened because of setting in the improper time (between 22:00 and 02:0
  15. Hi there everyone. Recently I have been looking at Seagull watches, specifically the M170S Chrono with the flywheel, and I'm wondering where is s good place to buy one! EBay seems good and there coming from Hong Kong but I don't know if the EBay sellers are Legitimate or not and how to tell this. Also I saw the website seagullwatchstore.com Hopefully some of you can tell me what are good places to buy from! Thanks!
  16. Hi, As this sub-forum is mainly "Russian", let me bring little variety and show You some of my new incomes: Automatic "Shuangling" (Double Rhomb) 40j: Zhongshan make some very nice pressed relief dial. Luckily I succeed to find three rare watches - Two peacocks (or Phoenixes), Six pandas and Eight deers: And again rare Wuyi with guilouched dial: Hope You like them. Regards, Miro.
  17. Hi, I'd like to present You my freshly arrived: 1. Seagull 2. Dongfeng with white dial and "Serve the people" inscription in red 3. Dongfeng with black dial and the same inscription And both Dongfeng brothers black & white They look like new, probably are not NOS, but recently assembled. The movements are the same - ST5A, keep very accurate time. Hope You like them too. Regards, Miro.
  18. Hi all, I'd like to show you my new income - a homage of a well known AT: It comes from the Singapore department of Seagull. It's with ST16 movement, which is no longer used in Tianjin watches: The quality is very good, the details are fine and precise: The crown is signed and screw-down: The bracelet is solid, but the end links could be fitted more accurate: Overall - excellent watch, especially for the price: Regards, Miro.
  19. Hi all, here's my new addition to the Seagull's collection - Seagull m222s orange: It's a wristwatch with a movement from a pocket watch - some of You make this themselve :) Well, Seagull decided to make such, and I've been looking for it, only the price of ~ $270 looked some over for me. But at the Bay a seller accepted my offer, and after three weeks here it is: Unfortunately the red case came with broken lings, but otherwise I couldn't see signs of wear. The back is see-through and let us enjoy the nice decorated old ST3600: Maybe only from the bended strap I can
  20. Hi all, I have two chronos with ST19 movement, but as a collector I wanted to own a genuine 'Seagull' made. Today arrived my new addition - m190s, black version. The dial is a standard m190s, but in black - guilouched with two different pattern. The combination of the outer guilouche (outside the seconds marks) and the imprint of the sub-seconds is quiet interesting. The chrono hands are common too, but the main hands are a bit unusual for this style - with the black dial they make it look more like a 'pilot' nuance. The watch came 'second hand', but polished 'as new'. Unfortunately the
  21. Hi all, I'd like to present you the original Chinese reissue of the first mass-produced Chinese wristwatch WuYi. It means '51' and was dedicated to the International Labor Day (1st of May). There also is a version for the American market - limited to 800 pcs. It's influenced by the very popular Seagull m177s. And it was more than twice cheaper, so it was the first I got. But frankly I liked more the Chinese reissue, based on the original design of the 1955's. At last, after a year from buying the American, I got the Chinese WuYi too: It came in a very nice wooden case, colored in Bordea
  22. Have you guys seen this new Instagram User @dailywatch? Pretty awesome gallery: http://instagram.com/dailywatch Found my next watch there! I think you would like it :)
  23. Hi all, I'd like to show you my new income. It was an accidental buy, I liked the 3D renders, it was stated it's a limited edition of 199 pcs. Then I contacted the seller, he redirected me to QQ (chat program mainly in China), and after a long chat I decided I can trust him (You know the rule "buy the seller, not the watch"). Today the watch arrived :yahoo: The movement is ST2130, Seagull's clone of ETA 2824-2. The look is astonish, doesn't matter the case is 40 mm, the watch is so elegant and discreet. Every detail is very well designed, and perfect quality control is obvious - label, l
  24. Hi all, I've always been thinking about 'Parnis' brand as a cheap alternative, but with some compromises - sometimes with a little noisy rotor, sometimes with a very slight flaws on the case or dial, but mostly with not so good 'homage' translation the design of the originals, which make them look non-balanced and very far of them Yes, if bought from a trusted source, they are excellent 'quality for money' watches. I can't explain exactly what it is, but there's always something.... But when I saw this watch: I was grabbed instantly. Even I'm not a fan of diver style. But this Par
  25. Hi all, long time I haven't presented a new Seagull, and today my new addition arrived: I was wondering how to adjust the hands so everything available on the dial - day, date, month, day / night (unfortunately not a moon phase) to be visible. The dial is flat, perhaps with all the info on it a guilouche would overload it. The required red is still present as a crescent, stating the date, but the arrow could have been longer by 1-2 mm. The watch is mostly dress, especially with the "rose gold" cover. The case is relatively large - 43 mm diameter, and 13 mm. thick, but because
