  1. 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.
  2. Looking to buy a second hand "Divers" watch with a budget of around £1500. I would be eternally grateful for the Forums guidance into the more "random" manufacturers out there as well as the more mainstream. "Vintage" would also be of interest within the prescribed remit.
  3. 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.
  4. Could somebody please tell me the difference between these two longines legend divers? I notice that the dials are signed differently at the automatic - can anyone explain why or which watch is “better” thank-you Okay, so I just read up that they added this 30 bar bit to the dial in 2013 or thereabouts - but after some deliberation and customer dissatisfaction they dropped it back off... what does anyone think about this becoming a rare model some day?
  5. Just picked up a crazy Citizen divers watch that I’ve had my eye on for some time. Couldn’t say no after they gave 50% discount. Suits Thailand’s sabai sabai attitude but don’t think I could get away with it in the UK. Lets see what other crazy divers watches you have. I’ll start:
  6. Hi, looking for some advice please. Im interested in purchasing a christopher ward c65 trident automatic. I love the retro design, colours and leather strap and size. But due to them being online only i am interested in asking about quality and value for money as im very much a fan of being able to feel and see a product before i buy. Ive never spent more than £300 on a watch before so this what i consider to be a more sizeable investment. I am new to the world of watches, ive always had an interest of sorts and have always liked Omega but feel i cannot justify the price (yet) any help in these matters are grately appreciated. Thanks in anticipation Robert Catley.
  7. Hello, please let me introduce you the STH Carbon, on Kickstarter from the 1st June! Case and Dial entirely made of carbon fiber. Double domed 4mm thick sapphire crystal AR coated. Screw down crown. 300mt/1000ft water resist. Seiko NH35a automatic mov.

  8. I got this watch a couple months ago. Previously I had the stainless version which is also shown in this video. Both are extremely accurate. http://youtu.be/coJVgXmNGzM
  9. hi Simon....I have managed to find a bezel that seems the right size to fit this TARA allsport watch....(original one missing)...however am struggling to get it to fit securely...have tried giving the spring a few bends in different places but it doesn't seem to want to clip on tight...don't know if this is something you could point me in the right direction for...advice wise....or if not ....something you could remedy quite cheaply for me... perhaps with a different spring? maybe... many thanks
  10. Anyone know where i could find a bezel for this TARA All Sport Divers Watch?....Or if one can't be found ....if it would be possible to fit a generic replacement of some type or perhaps one from another watch with same size face?....Any suggestions?.......watch face is 30mm diameter and case 35mm (minus crown) many thanks
  11. Hi guys, tried signing up up and it turned out I was already a member. Really don’t remember doing that, may have been a lurker, anyway just a quick hello. obviously into watches, started about 18 years ago when my parents bought me a nice Raymond Weil don something or other, really classy Art Deco chrono. I’ve bought and sold on numerous seiko divers and eventually about ten years ago I bit the bullet and got a planet ocean with white numbers and black bezel. I love this watch and I think it’s my favorite dive watch. Bought a new explorer a bit over a year ago which again I’m totally in love with and last week I got a moonwatch which I’m smitten with. On here to learn more about watches etc, love good pictures of watches and always nice to see what’s out there in the way of straps and new models etc. Kind regards to all Chris
  12. Evening ladies & gents, Firstly, thanks for having me, literally just made an account. So you all are aware I am a complete novice in regards to watches let alone Rolex's so apologies for any naivety on my part. My current range is a bog-standard Casio G-SHOCK and a Kirby Morgan (diver) watch which I believe runs with Seiko internals but don't take my word on that. So, I was recently fortunate enough to have won a 'Rolex Deepsea 126660 James Cameron Edition' watch through a BOTB (Best of the Best) competition run through the UK. For those of you who don't know it's a guessing game where you selected from a variety of tickets from cars, watches, bikes, holidays etc. The aim of the game is to guess where the center of the football is in the screenshot of two footballers looking in the direction of the ball. I was lucky this week and my winning ticket was the Rolex. So as a winner you are given the opportunity to either take the prize (worth 9050 GBP according to their website) or take a cash alternative at 7000 GBP. I hastily took the watch as I have been made aware from a fellow Saturation diver who collects Rolex's that their value usually increase overtime. They have now placed the order and have been told the waiting list can be anywhere from 1-2 years. My question to you is, over the next year or two whilst I’m waiting for the watch could you estimate any increase in value and also over the next 1-5 years thereafter? I guess the answer to that will also answer my next which would be do you think I made the right decision in turning down the cash option. Completely understand no such thing is guaranteed and any estimates given are exactly that, just an estimate. Thanks for taking the time to read through this, apologies for it being a bit long winded, just wanted to spin the whole spiel. Cheers ads
  13. N New arrival from the current C.W. sale. Had to go for 38mm as i know 43mm will be large. First impressions are fairly heavy , the patina lume sort of looks odd when you are used to white. Has a nice domed sapphire and nice matte black bezel which very closely matches the dial. Is it a dressy diver though? , it came on a nice bracelet and has 600m wr, but the hour markers might be to petite for some. Lume shot above. Nice matching date wheel and a lovely shaped and machined case with a slight brush finish. Has the dreaded logo, which takes part of the 9 marker away, a nice vladimir script C.W. would probably suffice below the 12 marker, and I would love to see ward do something like this next time around. Will give it a wear for a few days to see how I get on with it. Thanks.
  14. Every now and then I get a bee in my bonnet to expand my options for watch stands. I try to get good former retail display stands. These can feature the logo of a brand you favor (or want to display), or are made of fine material (wood, plexi, leather). Some are made cheaply and wont survive the use and abuse of regularly having watches put them, taken off, put back on. Others are superbly made and will last a long time. Sometimes I get lucky and get some in VG or like new condition. This month I did a look-see and found a black, plastic one with the Nixon logo very discreetly embossed into one corner, hard to notice except in direct light. Suited me because I own no Nixon watches. What intrigued me was the elegant chrome arm coming up that supports the "C" band support in two positions: vertical 12-up, or a 45 degree angle dial up. In low light it sort of disappears and the watch appears to be floating (I'd guess this was never apparent in a brightly lit jewelry or watch store). Nice shape, good bargain for $11ish. The same seller had some Seiko stands, most of them sort of beat up and the coverings or material showing wear and tear, coming off the underlying base. (With some snazzy stands, when the covering gets scuffed or ripped, is coming off, the whole effect is ruined. Think of wood veneer that's peeled up and showing particle board underneath.) This one's in fine shape. I have no idea what model it was intended to display, with its carbon fiber pattern, and yellow highlight down the lateral center. I'm guessing it was for a sport watch, maybe with a racing tie-in. The "C" band support is huge, that's an issue I found with some stands: they are intended to hold a watch with the unadjusted factory bracelet (no links removed), so with small wrists like mine a watch that's sized for me doesn't a quite fit. Except for my 7S26 diver (SKXA47K), which has a diver extension on it (a small latch that expands the bracelet to fit over a wet suit, then locks away under the bracelet clasp when not in use). With the extension released, this lovely underrated watch stands proud on my new stand. Looking high speed?
  15. Hey guys, This is my first post here on the forum but I’ve already read some interesting threads. I’m from a small town in Sweden best known for out chocolate factory and together with a couple of enthusiast we set out to start the brand Amant. Our goal was to make durable and versatile dress watches. We’re currently sold on three continents and have reached over 60 countries. We still haven’t received even one international return since our start about 3 years ago. So this year we decided to celebrate by launching something special. A few specs: Movement: ETA 2824-2 Case: 41mm, 316L Rostfritt Stål, 10 ATM Glass: Anti-reflexbehandlat Safirglas (fram & bak) Price: €249 - €349 It will be strictly limited edition and available through Kickstarter. What do you think guys and is this something you could wear? All feedback is appriciated! More info: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/amant/the-ultimate-explorer-watch-swiss-automatic-diver Cheers, Ashkan Updated specs: Movement: ETA 2824-2, 38h Power ReserveCase: 41mm, 8mm thin, 316L Stainless Steel Glass: Sapphire Crystal (Front & back)Water Resistance: 100 m Price: €249 - €349
  16. So, I've found a heavy 21 jewel Miyota diving watch which has two diving company names on the dial, the name of a ship/expedition and the divers name with serial number (no 137) on the rear. I guess a Miyota 21 jewel is £40-80 but does the "proveance" add alot more? I'm deciding whether to clean it up and service it...
  17. 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?
  18. Hello! First time posting here, have a few watches myself. I've been eyeing up a few dive watches (Steinhart 500 Titanium/SKX013/SKX009 as well as few others) but for now think I'm going to get the special edition Seiko Prospex PADI some point in the next couple months. My question is mainly about the prices, on the Seiko website it's around £400 as well as few other sites, and in shops where I live. But on Amazon they are selling it (brand new) for £280.. I'm just wondering why/how there is such a price difference, is it the real deal? Do you get all the proper papers and certificates? Thanks for any replies, Oliver.
  19. Hi there, this is my first forum post. I have a few watches in my collection that I have purchased over time. However recently I have been saving up so I am trying to sell a few of them, however, I have no idea what they are worth. Most of my watches I know how much they are worth but I have a Zodiac and a Zenith that I don't really know much about them, could you possibly help me out?
  20. Thanks to the people who do this work of art. A week ago, I went to the site http://komandirskie.com and I found a cheap watch, made an order. They are very cool. Many advantages and most importantly beautiful.
  21. Hi All, I'm new in the forum. I have been looking to purchase a new divers watch now i've caught the bug! I would live a submariner, unfortunately that looks a good few years off at the moment. I have been looking around at non homage alternatives and I have really taken a liking to the Tag heuer Aquaracer (Wan 2110) .. i was hoping to get some yhoughts or maybe some alternative ideas. Thanks, Gino
  22. Hi guys! Happy to share with you part 3 of the Enicar collector’s guide series, now focusing on the two-crown Sherpa Divers. Enicar Sherpa 2 Crown Diver Collector's Guide This includes information on the first two-crown diver, the Sherpa Super Divette, named after the Divette, its one crown counterpart, along with other equally interesting pieces: the Sherpa 600 Lady Diver, Super Dive, Ultradive, and what we consider the grail of two-crown Enicar Sherpa divers, the Sherpa OPS. As with the earlier articles, we share our recommendations for the “Entry”, “Keeper”, and “Grail” models for this line. Let me know what you think Special thanks to @DaveE for giving permission to use his Super Divette image. Enjoy! Cheers, Andrew
  23. Hello Guys, I'm greenhand in this Forum, very happy join in this forum. I am a watchmaker from Pantor Watch company, some may heard of it. located in HK, focus on making automatic watches.
  24. Hi everyone! I discussed my projects in other forums and got great help on a verity of questions which led up to my own watch project. I thought many of you might be interested in. I while ago I quit my job to chase my dream of creating a high-end wrist watch from scratch. It's a risky, dumpy ride and totally worth it! The design is ready and I found a manufacturer in Switzerland who can both modify a ETA movement to fit my requirements and assemble the watch. The model will have a unique feature never seen before, so that is incredibly exciting! I would be honored if you wanted to follow it, all opinions makes a Huge difference. I'm posting daily on my Facebook page: facebook.com/ecanderssonwatches Thank you!
