  1. I have what appears to be an extremely rare Movado RAF Military Watch 6B/159 and I would like to know a possible value?

  4. Hi Simon, Very much a novice at this very interesting hobby (for me anyway). I bought Montine 17 Jewel watch on ebay to practice on, it has an AS5203 movement. I stripped it down videoing as I went along. found a broken setting lever spring which I am sourcing a replacement (445/1). The trouble is when I rebuilt the watch I could not set the hands. I looked again at the video and rebuilt the watch again with the same outcome. It seems the 3rd wheel and the setting wheel are in constant contact with the minute wheel/cannon pinion (it is a one piece item. Having checked the video

  7. Hi, Does anyone know where I can get a replacement acrylic crystal for a Conquest Calendar Automatic Longines watch (made in the 1950's)? Thanks in advance for any help. Bassam
  8. Hi all, I'm pretty new to watches and I do have this Vita 105115 mechanical watch. I really like it, but I cannot find any info about it on the web? Nor about the brand, nor about the type. (all search results go to Viita smartwatches or to Longines Dolce Vita ) Does anybody have any info about this brand? Or about this watch in particular? It's Swiss made. Family-rumours guess it's from around 1945 (or later), but i'm not sure. I'm trying to add pictures but don't know how that works on this forum... Extra info: 17 Jevels - Calendar type Hands have some glow-in-the-dark in
  9. The only good thing about wet days is you can tinker. I dug this one out of retirement, and treated it to a good polish new glass, and a lube. surprising how they recover with a little effort.
  10. ello. I have only few pictures of Tudor Prince Oysterdate 7966. Can someone help me? Its real piece of Tudor? What do you think? greetings Photos: https://ibb.co/mR6Cjxm https://ibb.co/1TxJhjw https://ibb.co/1RZ02JL https://ibb.co/7tRbkdb https://ibb.co/TmF5NYn
  11. Been coveting this model for ages. One finally came up that was appreciably under list price, not new but unused and guaranteed By Tudor for full 2 years. also this one has the benefit of the NATO style Tudor fabric strap as well as a brand new full steel bracelet. I've almost never worn any watch on a NATO up until now, but I have to say this one looks the dogs bollocks - as we used to say in the old days. Seriously smart but slightly casual. The eyes have already popped out on stalks back home when shown to my two sons in their 20s! It’s caused a massive dent in my little watch f
  12. Hi, I’m new to the forum. My grandad left me an IWC Portugieser (automatic) and I’m thinking of selling it but I’m unsure of how to go about it Should I get it authenticated by IWC for 300 CHF or just try to sell it? And if so, what places would people recommend in London to get it appraised or sold? I’m not too comfortable with trying to sell it online Thanks in advance. Any advice would be appreciated -Jerry
  13. Greetings everybody I’ve just joined this forum and would love some thoughts on my next purchase. I currently own a Rolex Datejust which I bought new in 1998 and an Omega Planet Ocean, which I purchased new in 2010. I’d like to add to my collection and have seen some cracking prices for the Omega Speedmaster (Sapphire Sandwich) and the Chopard Mille Miglia XL 2016. I don’t know much about Chopard, but the looks are appealing to me. The Speedmaster, I think, speaks for itself. I would welcome anyone’s thoughts on these please. Thanks in advance.
  14. I recently bought an Helvetia Automatic watch marked "32 Jewels" on the face. When it arrived I found that it was marked "25 Jewels" on the rotor. As I thought that the movement had been changed, I returned it for a refund. There was another similar watch for sale so I checked with the seller as to how many jewels it had. He replied that it was also marked "25 Jewels" on exactly the same movement H847. Please could somebody tell me what is going on? Have Helvetia added some extra jewels and if so, why didn't they put the correct number on the rotor?
  15. Hello, does anyone have any information about Behco Swiss watch? I have recently found this watch for sale but can't find any information about the brand. Thanks very much for your help.
  16. Good afternoon, I'm not sure, but is this Venus movement an FHF 25? I cannot see anything under the balance wheel. Love the translation of FHF thou, last F being; "Fontainemelon"
  17. I was fortuneate to recieve a Smiths Astral, 9 carat case, with a Swiss 17 jewel movement from a late relative. I bears no country of origin or manufacture on the dial, just Smith Astral and the crown logo. It has a screw down back hall marked for 1972, the inscription is dated 1974. I can't find any similar dials online having just the arabic numerals, and a centre second hand. The back has the number '1715/1' stamped inside with the various marks. Any ideas on rarity? or value? or is it more realistic to browse ebay for current prices? My grandson has his eye on it so I doubt I'
  18. Hello can anyone help with any info on Japy watches? are they any good, are they reliable, etc thanks

  20. Hi, I was hopeful for some advice regarding a watch I have been looking to purchase. I am no expert and would appreciate any input. The watch in question is a vintage Jaeger le-coultre uniplan (from my understanding) however I have some concerns regarding authenticity. For one the dial is marked "Jaeger" only, where as the movement states "Jaeger Le-coultre. Could it be a Frankenwatch? Any thoughts on this and anything other comments would be greatly appreciated. I am really sorry but I cant load anymore pictures for some reason. Any thoughts on the above however would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Hi, Would someone with more knowledge than myself be able to confirm the legitimacy of this watch: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Rolex-Oyster-Date-1500-Stainless-Steel-Gold-36-mm-Cal-1570-COSC-/402279787850?hash=item5da9be6d4a%3Ag%3AXQQAAOSwxbhe0nWb&nma=true&si=cHlGt5Fju4iwwAUmg4a7D8QJp2Q%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 I have purchased it, but am concerned that the reference in the case back (1500) is different to the one between the lugs (1505). The serial number (5827306) suggests it was made in 1978, but am I right in thinking

  23. It would be interesting to know, if you could travel today, which watches would you take on an Antarctic journey? I watched this video (with subtitles. Original Language: German) and found the choice quite interesting: I look forward to your selection... and please explain briefly why you would choose them!
  24. Hello Simon I was given my late father's Roamer Rotodate watch, it has '44' in the face too (presumably the number of jewels) and Brevete and various patent numbers on the back. If I wear it, it seems to work OK except the winding stem and knob (crown, jewel etc) are missing. There is only a small round, hollow piece sticking out of the watch. Whilst my research suggests this is a rare model, I'd quite like to wear it. To do that, I'll need a winding stem and the 'knob' or whatever it's called. Is this something I can insert myself without dismantling the watch? ...if so, do you kno
  25. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143647158804 Hello. I have recently acquired a Camy miss 25 solid silver watch. It has been scratched '1979' on the inside case. I know nothing about this watch, and can't find any other like it. Any information would be greatly appreciated, and also I would be interested to know if there are any links that could be added to make it bigger. Thank you
