  2. I have a beautiful 1916 Rolex 'Trench Watch' which could really do with a professional service, and I would love to know where I could get it serviced. It has one slight issue that I know of which is the mainspring. It could do with going on a mainspring winder to tighten it up, but I did not see the point of buying one just to fix this watch only. The one on the left is the Rolex needing the service. (Rolex, Elgin, Rolex) Any advice regarding servicing, watch repairers that could do this, or cheap mainspring winders would be really appreciated.
  3. Hello all Firstly, thank you for allowing me access to your forum. I've always liked to have one "nice" watch since I treated myself coming out of my apprenticeship in early 90's. Through the years I cycled through a few but nearly always one at a time .... until fairly recently. 2 things happened in quick succession which found me in receipt of 3 "new" watches. I inherited a gold mechanical wind Bulova from grandfather / father. I got burgled and splurged on a new Omega Seamaster with the insurance money covering my pinched Tag Aquaracer Calibre S. I spotted
  4. It's been a few months since my last "haul" so I thought I'd update because its lockdown and I'm that bored Plus I think it might be nice to have them posted somewhere so if someone ends up owning one of them they can see a little of the "history" (if you can call it that). To keep it tidy I won't list absolutely every watch, as I sold a lot and truth be told forgot about them (e.g. Tissot Seven Seastar, 50s Doxa, Lanco etc), just the more recent ones I quite like(d) or still have. I will put an asterisk* by the ones that I've since sold. 1952(?) Tissot Visodate Seller had very lit
  5. Hi to all! Just approximately one year ago I wrote here in order to receive some feedbacks from you about our new collection of automatic watches, the AVERAU, that we launched on KS. The campaign has been very successful and so our dream has become reality. Now we will launch in June the second collection 1956 but I'm here again to receive some feedbacks about another project the AVERAU in 39mm. I know that many people didn't like the case size (42mm), the Date writing, the Jewels writing, etc. etc. So we have made some improvements and these are the new specs: - 316L case - 39mm w
  6. The Lemania 1872 SAAF first dial issue 1971, The Second issue 1975, then the Lemania 2220 from the mid 60's and last but not least, the Lemania 5012 issued in the early 80's.

  7. I'm new to the watch repair scene and was wondering if anyone could give me some more information on this vintage Rolls watch I've just bought, I can't find this model online anywhere, it has the letters RR on it.
  8. I started collected G10's when my GMTII started increasing in value, I wanted to feel slightly less conscious when travelling on the underground, reaching up for the grab rail and exposing my watch. Whilst I wanted something 'every day' and less obvious, I still wanted something I enjoyed wearing and that had something about it, history and desirability etc. Anyway getting to the point, my life long friend wants to offload his GMTII and I am looking at purchasing from him. In order to get this past the Long Haired General, I will need to sell some or all of my CWC collection...
  9. G’day guys, I’m new to the forum and I was wondering if anyone had advice on an alternative to the Bremont ALT1-ZT/51 (link at bottom). I’ve just earned my pilot’s wings and I’m looking to treat myself but there’s just no way I could afford it. I’m in love with the watch but if anyone can suggest similar watches for around $700 USD I would greatly appreciate it. Cheers https://www.bremont.com/collections/watches-mens-alt1-z/products/alt1-zt-51
  10. I have a small collection of vintage British and German military watches. Just venturing into American. Started with an A-11 and an A-17 and an A-17A. I like the look of the A-17 best . It seems to be legitimate to me but I don't have enough experience to be sure. What concerns me is very low serial number on the case back. not the best photos I'm afraid. Would appreciate any comments

  12. This is a watch i bought from eBay last month, i have to say the watch impressed me. It's a Chinese brand you may not heard it before, neither do i, the brand called San Martin. I found they made a lots of bronze watches which really interested me, and finally i decide to take this one. so far i'm very pleased for this watch. Here i just want to share some of my experiences, i talk about it as i'm a fan of watches, and a collector of good watches. here we just go for this watch. The watch diameter is around 39mm, include crown around 42mm, thickness is around 12mm, wea
  13. Hi All, I’m Tom, random member with some random watches. Everything from a GShock....to a soon to arrive Panerai with a splattering of Pulsar, CWC, Tag, Dunhill and Montblanc in the middle. Looking forward to chatting to you all! Very best.
  14. The lume is layered - the hands are the brightest, markers slightly less bright, and the bezel dimmer still, to avoid flare in night vision goggles - either yours or the enemy's lol See you in a bit, just going on to Ebay to get some night vision watchmaker's magnifying goggles Oh, in case you didn't see the watch - it comes on a chunky rubber strap.
  15. I did a search on the forum for 'Holton' and it only cropped up twice (both times in posts by me) - I have just bought one (as I implied I might, in my post 'one more watch' over a month ago). I hope to be wearing it later this week, but wondered if anyone else had come across them - this is a quote from an Elliot Brown spokesman: The Holton is different because ... it is NSN’d and Issued, and that’s rare. As we’ve said, we’re not aware of another British brand doing that in a decade.It's available to buy on the NATO system, and has been purchased from MoD budget by specialist military s
  16. Hello.Help me find the information and the price about the watch. The clock was inherited from my grandfather. I could not find anything anywhere. Photo https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pobqKTt9SzdyGQWHb70ViMdmltWStSf3 Photo https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pobqKTt9SzdyGQWHb70ViMdmltWStSf3
  17. Hello, Looking for some advice. I recently found in my father's belongings a dirty dozen Vertex watch (father was in army in early sixties and fought in Borneo, I think this is the watch he used at the time) I remember him wearing it when I was young. It is not working so I took it to a watch repairer who said after having a look inside that it was not repairable due to rust inside... The balance is also broken. Can you recommend a Yorkshire based specialist who will be able to do something with it? I would love to get it up and running again... Sentimental value etc.... My everyday watch
  18. After oh so many videos in which the host TALKS about a historic watch while showing us the rather uninspiring modern derivation, this video actually shows us the originals. In EXQUISITE macro shot detail. Simply lovely. Featured Watches: Heuer Carrera 1153 Heuer Bundeswehr 1550 SG Heuer Monaco 1133G

    JLC 497

    Looking into buying a JLC 497 movement watch (40'S army issue) never worked on one this old or an automatic watch for that matter but cannot seem to find much info on how exactly how these movements work. More specifically what the part with what looks to be some sort of adjustment with "P.S.A.R." around it.
  22. I am trying to find a replacement second hand for my 1968 Benrus MIL-W3818B. The watch met with an unfortunate accident, breaking the glass and losing the second hand. I have sourced a replacement glass from the US, but have been unable to find a cottect matching second hand. Any help would be greatly received.
  23. Hello, would somebody know which kind of watch this is? There are the only pictures available. Thanks! Insert isn't possible it seems, pictures here: https://imgur.com/a/lfl31U2
  24. So I bought a MWC G10SL MkVI as I wanted a quartz watch for work (EDC) as I ride a bike and it need to be sturdy, the watch has Sapphire Crystal, Field style dial, Screw lug bars, Tritium (GTLS) hands/chapter ring and Ronda 715Li movement (10 yr battery life). £275 which is abit much but I could not find a cheaper watch with these specs. Now this is when things go sideways when I noticed the seconds hand was not exactly on the indices so I stripped the watch down and after refitting it a dozen times finally got it sorted. Then after staring at the watch enjoying the precision, I d
