  1. 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
  2. I recently pulled this watch I inherited a long time ago out of the safe and have been trying to identify which year it was made, and failed miserably to nail it down. Since a few kind folks here on the forum recently kindly helped me with a similar search for knowledge I was hoping someone here might be able to pin it down — a big thank you in advance for indulging me. It's a Chronoswiss Lunar Chronograph with moonphase, marked with reference number 77990. Given who owned it before and their biography, I'd expect this to be from around 1985-1993. I looked in every place I could
  3. I am not sure if it is a legit watch, any ideas?
  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. Hello All. I'm a fellow watch enthusiast from the North-East of England. I hope everyone is keeping well. I'm new to the forum but not exactly lol I joined a couple of years back, forgot the password/display name within the first few weeks, and wasn't getting a reply from admin so just left it! I'm back now mainly because I recently bought myself a cheap watch repair kit, dusted off the old watch storage box and started to give my watches the attention they required. Last time I did a full intro of my watches - this time I'll keep it short. Top Row - Left to right
  6. Hi guys and girls, A bit of an opinion poll for an isolated Sunday afternoon: Do you have any "must haves" when buying a new watch? Complications? Colours? Calibres? Mechanical or Quartz? Swiss or Japanese? Big boy 50mm or the more classic 40mm? I realise this is a very open question, but let's be honest, we all have a little extra time at the moment. Dive, dress or pilots, what makes a killer watch for you?
  7. 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. For comprehensive articles on the 1872 and 5012, please feel free to follow the relevant links below The Lemania 1872 SAAF and The Lemania 5012 SAAF
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Looking at zenith defy el primero 21 ,anyone on here got experience of one?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!

  15. 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 i
  16. 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
  17. 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 com
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. I'm very seriously considering buying a Citizen Proximity with smart phone linkup. What are peoples thoughts?

  22. 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
  23. 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. T
  24. 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 wat
  25. 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 abou
