  1. What's going on, divers and watch collectors! I just got my PADI dive master license and start to look for a new diving watch, then I saw this Crestical TX-1 on kickstarter recently and found that pretty cool. What I like about it the most is the duel bezel design which gives me a 24-hr GMT bezel for adjusting time zone while traveling and an inner bezel for calculating dive time. Of course you can use a dive computer for this, but I think most people prefer a real watch when it does the same thing and has luminous coating (for both outer and inner bezel). A little bit
  2. Hi, folks. Does anyone have a view on the Tag Connect? A nice looking watch and I know it won’t hold its value but it’s a bit different. Must be a popular thing as a couple of models are on a 12 week delivery. thanks.
  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 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?
  6. I have a timex model 63 and I suspect the balance coil is open circuit as I cannot measure and resistance between the electronic board output and the body of the watch, I am an electronics engineer with suitable kit. Any ideas on what the resistance should be or where could I get a replacement balance assembly. Any Ideas welcomed, this particular watch has been with me since new but not warn for a long time since it stopped, but it has a lot of history. I would like to get it working if possible
  7. Good morning everybody, I am thinking about buying a cheap automatic watch with complications (chronograph, lunar phase, or the like) Do you have such a watch serviced? Or do you just buy a new one when the time for a service comes? Do you spend, say, £300 for the service of a watch with some complications you have paid, say, £400 or £500? Or are there cheaper ways to get these watches serviced? Or am I missing something? Thanks to all in advance Cassius Longinus
  8. Hi all, I've got a quartz ETA 455.412 movement - everything appears to be in good shape until the seconds hand reaches around 12 seconds and then it just stops. I pulled the crown into the second position and pushed it back in a few times and I can see that it's itching to move but it can't. On further inspection I noticed that if you gave the seconds hand a slight nudge it would go past this point and then cycle around until it reached the same point and stopped again. I thought that the hand might be magnetised at first but after giving it a nudge there is a definite resist
  9. Does anyone please recognize this watch maker? The brand looks to surely be TP, but I can find literally nothing about it. There is a modern watch brand TP Time Piece but this watch looks a bit older than when they started and the logos are completely different. On the back it says TP Collection; there is a company called TP Collections but they are a wholesaler and don't look to actually make watches just sell rolex's and such. Any help appreciated thanks, I'm just highly curious and don't like an unsolved mystery Images: https://ibb.co/r3ZNWHM https://ibb.co
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Hello, This is what we have been tinkering with as a hobby project for a while: Décantheure Wine Watch. We wanted to give new meaning to the internal rotating bezel (from the 1960'ies diver's watches - introduced by the Swiss company Ervin Piquerez S.A.). We added some time arcs so that the HOUR hand (and not the MINUTE hand) is used to keep track of time intervals (0.5H, 1H, 1.5H, 2H and 3H). We also added a green mineral glass as see-through back ("wine bottle colored). We are also been inspired by the Pilot Watches where a lot of information has to be presented in a logical

  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
  15. Hi can anyone help me to identify one of my older Citizens please? Don't know what happened but one of my favourite Citizen watches given to me some time ago by my parents has lost its crown - looking to see if it can be repaired or not and identity the model and movement info. in case replacing the entire movement is required - also would appreciate any feedback on likely costs Thanks Jim
  16. Hello Everyone, I’m stumped with this watch. My gf’s grandmas watch. I cannot locate anything about it online, yet it seems a special purchase back then since it’s 24C gold plated. If you could ID it and perhaps give us a bit of a background? It’d be highly appreciated! Unfortunately I cannot post any pics yet.. The watch is a: FC First Class Gold Crown Swiss Quartz - 24K Gold Plated -Hardness Crystal - FC2091L Cheers!
  17. Hi All, I need some help finding the right type of watch for an affect. I need an analogue quartz movement that will keep time but when a reed switch (fitted across the right point) is operated (magnet in the strap) the hour and minute hand move quickly (about one full rotation of the min hand in 3 seconds) till the reed switch is released. I have an old video of an example, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtSFYcbRgWg) but can’t find any more information on it, apart from it keeps time but the crown is a dummy. You set the time by operating the reed switch with the magnet.

  21. Hello all, first time poster and hoping your experience and wisdom will help me resurrect this 1950s/60s car clock. It’s a 2” in-dash Smiths, CE 2160/02. It looks complete and the movement looks clean. I acquired as a non-tested clock. I think it’s negative earth, but first question is how to correctly connect it to 12v? It has a single yellow wire - is this for live feed or earth? Other than this it has two threadposts at the rear with knurled nuts and washers. I huess these fix it into the dash but are either of the threaded posts at the back for 12v positive also? All poin
  22. Hello Watch Forum users, My name is Jakob Martin, and I have founded the relatively new watch brand Clairette Watches. We started by releasing two models at the beginning of the year and have now introduced two automatic models we intend to release on January 25th. Now we would like to get the feedback from the users of The Watch Forum! We are at the beginning of our journey as watchmakers but feel that we have been successful with our new automatic watches. In the future, we have already started sketching on watches in a slightly higher "premium" segment where we use movements
  23. Hi all! I am currently working on a new wristwatch project and it would be helpful to get some insights from you to understand what you look for in a quality watch. Could you please kindly fill in the short survey (it will take less than 1 minute) such that we would understand the market better? Your help is much appreciated. Wish a Merry Christmas! Many thanks, MCJT
