  1. Finally added a boss watch to my collection. I must have bid on dozens, and every time someone was prepared to pay more . Just needed the case re-polishing. I looked at fitting a genuine boss strap, but the price to quality did not make sense. In the end I chose a Italian padded strap, to which I added the Boss buckle. Very pleased with the result, not bad for £22.71. all in.
  2. Looking at zenith defy el primero 21 ,anyone on here got experience of one?
  3. Hi, just started a watch collection and hoping to keep it at one brand of each (famous last words) Omega, citizen, ferrari, Wenger Globenfeld so far . Have purchased a used Globenfeld Super Sport Limited Edition but after chasing my problem all around the world wide web i can find no solution. The second hand hand will not move, maybe previous owner has messed up the resetting for it. Have tried the chronograph resetting options available but cannot find a chronograph with digital dials. Its not flat as alarm sounds , beeps work , light works and all 3 digital dials work. Hoping somebody knows something about this problem. Its a great looking watch , dont want to wear it but just want second hand to move. Many thanks in advance (I dont know how to add a pic )
  4. Dear Watchforum, I am writing to you concerning a problem I have encountered with one of my watches, and I would like to hear your opinion on the subject. I have requested an "Extract of Archives" from one of the top 5 watch company's for a rare watch from the 90's. I paid over 200USD for the Extract document, I wanted to have it because my watch does not have its original booklet and I was curious of the exact date age of the watch. After receiving this book, I took it home and looked at the reference number and something seemed off. I knew the exact reference number of my watch, and on the paper the last 2 numbers (which refer to the type of dial) were different then what it should be. I got upset, and started thinking that my watch could have been dial swapped in the past to the reference number dial I thought I had, therefore it would have been a fabrication. This could significantly effect the value of the watch in the eyes of the buyers. Doing research online I found that that reference number they wrote on the document didn't even exist. That was what got me to call the factory and question the accuracy of the document. They were even surprised to hear that the document was not accurate, and they asked me to send it back to them and they will replace it. If I would have not noticed it and thought that this document is accurate, then it would have ruined the value of my watch and It would have made it nearly impossible to sell on the market. My question to you is: is it common for watch companies to make mistakes on official signed extracts ? What would you do in my place? How can you trust watch companies with your watch? Thanks,
  5. Okay so last year I took some time off from watches to focus on other things and recently got back into it. I've decided to start "flipping" watches on the side which means I get all the fun of finding, buying and giving a little TLC without the hoarding! I will resist talking money as I do not think it fair when the plan is to sell on, but obviously the aim of the game is to "buy low, sell high" so all are bought at a fairly low price tag for one reason or another (e.g. low 'buy it now' price or lack of details etc) Anyway, without further adoo: Sicura Chronograph: Man I loved this! Really weighty piece, in great condition, with a really "basic" movement in the back. Was a non-runner and I was unsure if investing in a service would be as profitable. One I may regret having sold one day! Roamer Brevete This was a super cool watch I took in as part of a job lot. It ran very fast but was still nice to wear and somewhat interesting lugs and dial. Probably would have held onto it if it kept time. New strap: Erlana - 15J Jura Watch Co. Movement A really nice watch with a surprise Jura Watch Co. Movement in the back. I'd love to know more to the history about both brands - the engravings in the back are a mystery to me and I wish I could find out more. Its a super quality piece that keeps great time, just a shame no-one wants to pay much for an unknown brand. It is certainly on par if not better than a lot of popular, more budget swiss brands. Rodine - 17J Automatic Elbon Movement Awesome little automatic which came to me with a horrible knackered black strap and scratches all over. I gave it a polish up and new strap and it is really looking the part. Runs well but too fast (not as fast as the Roamer mind you). Has an automatic Elbon movement in the back. Before: Medana 7J This is one that has surprised me - I did not expect to love it so much despite it not working! As such I've since hiked the price up on eBay to make it unlikely to sell - didn't want to annoy watchers by taking it down altogether as well as incur a fee. I'd really like to find a cheap working one to "frankenstein" as a service will never be cost effective for this. It's tiny but fits my skinny wrists perfectly and the leather strap is very similar to my 1940s Rolex but in amazing condition. I believe this to be circa 1940s so make me wonder if both straps are in fact of the era or at least very old! Certainly a watch I'd like to hold onto but should it get bought for the higher price I will refrain from getting too upset :P One thing I do regret is polishing the back (can't bring myself to share a photo!) - I really overdid but luckily after wearing it a bit it is settling down a bit. Certina This one I took a bit of a gamble on. Photos were blurry but the price seemed somewhat low for what I'd seen. The case has certainly seen better days but the movement looks clean and runs spot on. I'm unsure of how well this will sell for given the condition. Likely to put it up for sale in the following months when I get some quality but low-price straps in that I ordered.
  6. Hi Simon, new member here. I found this forum by Googling “Sicura repairs” so I believe you’ve worked on these watches before? I inherited this Sicura which is in need of some TLC- https://imgur.com/gallery/84BDiZy It runs for about 30 mins then stops. Is this something you think you could fix? Many thanks in advance!
  7. See my listing for my Black Bay Chrono: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=183999729203&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229508&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111
  8. Hi, I'm trying to decide on a piece I can wear for everything. This is my first watch and at the age of 31 I am running out of reasons not to buy a watch for myself. I can't find a fiancé which comes with an engagement offering, or parents that will produce a graduation present. So I'm looking at either a more practical Bell & Ross BR02/BR03 Diver or a Blancpain FF (2200-6530-66) or a IWC. Any other suggestions welcome. All I know is I don't want something too recognisable . Would like something a bit different. The Blancpain FF with the black bezel is where I'm currently leaning, thanks in advance. https://ibb.co/Ypw8nL3 https://ibb.co/T0G0X9g https://ibb.co/8BYm5nP https://ibb.co/mGbkqfC https://ibb.co/7kYVg4g A D E E free online picture hosting
  9. Can anyone help me to identify this? I find it intriguing because it is a single-purpose watch, and I wonder why it was ever built. It is a tachymeter. The single hand takes only 18 seconds per rotation. The dial is clearly a tachymeter, and it also reads 'm/sek'. I found that is measuses speeds of 60 to 500 km/h, with the highest accuracy between 60 and 150km/h. As such it seems to be made for cars. You start the watch and 300m further you stop it, and it displays the speed in meters per second. It runs well, mechanism is clean - and it even has a small compartiment with spare parts. It has only one inscription, the number 95225. That's it. No brand name, nothing. Here's my question: Why 300m? What could be so important to design and build a specific watch for measuring speeds over 300m ? And one more of the inside: http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm62/Puckaneer/IMG_20170526_111216.jpg
  10. The year is 1976. I was a newly minted constable in the Queensland Police Force. My first day on the job, someone asks "Why aren't I wearing a watch?. Every copper has to have a reliable watch." So, at the first opportunity I popped down to the local jeweller's to pick out a watch. The one with red on the ring thing and a couple of buttons on the side looked interesting enough. The price was right and it was a Seiko. I knew precious little about watches but I knew about Seiko watches from my Dad who had purchased a couple during his tour of duty over in Vietnam in 1966 and he swore by them. So the purchase was made. For the next 15 years that watch stayed on my wrist. Four years in a first response unit, three years in outback Queensland, chatting with shearers about whether or not they should retire for the night, meant that the watch and I regularly took a beating. Needless to say that this watch and I shared many adventures together. It was in the early 90s that I became a police diver and required a more suitable watch, so I retired the Seiko and bought a Tag 1500 Pro which I still wear from time to time, to this day. The wife, the Seiko and I became separated and it was for another 15 years that my daughter was able to retrieve the watch on my behalf. That was six weeks ago, the watch still goes after a bit of a shake but is badly in need of some TLC. The pushers are jammed up with gunk and as you can see by the photo, the glass could do with replacing. So off to the doctor's it goes. That's my story about about a 6139-6002. It hasn't been into space but it's done just about everything else. Cheers Hog Seiko 6139-6002, a little worse for wear Seiko 6139-6002-At the Post Office Tag 1500 - Still on the wrist
  11. I won this on ebay for a bargain price.. The crystal was totaly destroyed by welding or grinding spatter. You could just make out the yellow hand., Hours of work have gone into removing the deep pits with progressive use of wet and dry paper starting with coarse and working down to super fine. Then a final polish with stainless steel polish, followed by jewellers rouge. I amazed myself by the end results, and treated it to a new aviation strap
  12. I'm very seriously considering buying a Citizen Proximity with smart phone linkup. What are peoples thoughts?

  14. Hello Gents, my name is Evgeny and I am the founder of PaceMasters Watches We are a young yet ambition company, who specializes in racing-inspired watches. Our first project - Paddock Chronograph - is a Formula 1 racing inspired mecha-quartz chronograph powered by SII VK67 movement. It has a completely original design, and there are some unique racing parts which we wanted to implement in it, like a Pit Board with different signs which enframes the date window, start grid and Pole position marks on the chapter ring, and a carbon fiber layer as part of the multi-layered dial. We wanted to make something unique and really took our time to design it all from scratch. The design team consist of two great professionals: one is a watchmaker with many projects behind, another one is a car designer from Berlin, who helped us a lot to find our style. We have many visuals, design descriptions, as well as development story in the blog, and I would appreciate your comments, as watch-enthusiasts, if we managed to do it right. Please feel free to comment and ask questions and also check out more details on the website at www.pace-masters.com
  15. Hi watch geniuses I just got a Nixon 51-30 watch (model: A083595), bought from ebay. The seller gaurenteed that it was authentic, but I'm not sure about it. It is bought as a new watch without tags. The picture of the watch on the box doesn't look as sharp as I would think it would, and the gold color of the watch looks darker than the pictures of the internet.I have attached a picture of the authentic watch, and some of my watch and box.I hope someone can tell me if it is authentic or fake. If it is fake the i got to contact the seller ASAP, so I can get my money back before it is too late. Thank you guys! Best Regards Alex
  16. Last few days i was looking for a old Casio watch i've seen a 80s advertisement, and found this Marlin and Databank models which i didn't knew much about them, and fall in love with this one, i saw a guy with a DB and Marlin Casio collection on youtube and loved it. I found the Marlin on recommended page of Ebay and take a quick look at it, after a day, i decided that i needed to get it, the condition was not bad at all and had a new battery added in, i won the auction today, i'm very happy, i don't know if there is Casio digital-watch collectors or enthusiasts but i believe this is a Rare watch. There is a picture of it: https://imgur.com/eI0pdH9 Who owns the same watch? Just let me know!
  17. Good evening, I've found an old watch which belonged to my grandpa. I was wondering if any of you have any clue about what is it. It's an Ulysse Nardin, I've taken it to a local store and they told me it must have been made around the 30's/40's. It has a 5,4 cm wide face in ceramic. I've written to the identification service of Ulysse Nardin and all they manage to tell me is that the caliber is a 19"" C. C. R. based on the design of Paul David Nardin patented CH54714A sold from 1915 to 1971. I'll put some photos of it hoping they could help and that some of you can tell me something more about what could it be. Thank you all for your time. Greetings, Marco https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Yo1kx06o7IxbnoubbEx5QhgegavVlKCs
  18. After a little help from the U.K. forum members. For my 40th (8yrs ago!!) I was treated to a rather gorgeous IWC Fliegeruhr chrono which has behaved faultlessly until the chrono reset button fell out and was lost recently. I’ve done a bit of digging, without much success and am trying to find an independent UK who could repair the watch, give her a service and generally freshen up the case and stainless strap. Any recommendations gratefully received.
  19. Hullo all, as I'm new here, hope you can give me a little information about these Pulsar Chronograph watches, YM62-X144. I bought these two Pulsar Chronographs from a dealer, both with faults & bracelets missing. I've since overhauled & replaced the defective parts in the watch cases, but would now like to find a pair of metal bracelets to complete the repairs. So far, my search for the bracelets has proved unsuccessful. I tried Seiko firstly, as the parent company of the Pulsar brand but meet with a very unhelpful response that the watch was no longer available & subsequently, no parts were still stocked. They wouldn't even point me in the direction of their dealer network to check old stock. Dealers & watchrepairers that I know were also unable to help. A few went out of their way to try & source the missing bracelets, to no avail. So I now turn to members of the forum. My options are to either find suitable replacement metal bracelets or refit the working mechanisms into other suitable cases, beit Seiko, Pulsar or Lorus, where they are readily available. As these watches are for my own use, I'm not too bothered about originality, more about functionality as I was impressed with the working internals of both watches. They both keep excellent, accurate time.
  20. I have a Valjoux 7765 movement that i recently cleaned, however when putting the watch back together, i found that the only function that doesn't work is the date change. The quick-set date function works, however when in time setting and the time has been changed +24 hours, the date wheel does not react to this. Logic would guess that this has something to do with the cam and wheel it sits on, but i just cant seem to pinpoint the exact problem as photos i have seen online of the calendar set up seem identical to mine. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!
  21. I've recently been handed a watch which contains a Valjoux 7760 movement. However the keyless work is very dirty/rusty. The stem does not want to come out to matter how much force is applied to the setting lever. Does anybody have any tips on how i could solve this problem? Thank you in advanced! Christian
  22. Hi, I purchased a second-hand 2012 Breitling Superocean from a London watch dealer back in June last year. I have had no problems with this watch in fact I have been very pleased with my purchase, up until last week when I went to put my watch on in the morning (I never wear it to bed) and noticed that the face of the watch had turned within the case slightly. After a few hours the face had turned nearly 180 degrees in the case. I contacted the dealer I purchased it from and they suggested it had probably been caused by a knock or drop, and will result in the watch being to returned to Breitling for repair. This leaves me slightly confused as I am certain that this is not the case. This watch is very dear to me and I look after it very carefully - I saved for sometime and waited in excess of 6 months to find a model that I liked. Has anybody else had any similar problems as me - and any ideas on a resolution?
  23. They seems to have good reviews on trustpilot https://www.trustpilot.com/review/watchesofmayfair.com and real shop in London https://watchesofmayfair.com/about-us but their prices are kind of too low.
  24. Due to poor impulse control, I've now ended up with 2 yellow-dialled Seiko chronographs. I'm going to flip one of them, just haven't decided which one yet. It all started when Roger the Dodger posted a picture of his yellow Seiko. Before then, I'd never considered yellow as an option, but that watched looked stunning and I went to eBay immediately! I'm not disappointed, both look great to me. Anybody else have any yellow watches?
  25. Just wanted to ask what you guys thought of the Tag Heuer James Hunt watch and whether you think the Omologato is worth a punt? http://www.tagheuer.co.uk/int-en/news/tag-heuer-formula-1-james-hunt-limited-edition-1976-2016 omologato.myshopify.com/collections/the-hesketh-f1-chrono
