A few of mine. :)

Quartz LCD Six & I think my only battery Sekonda. The rest are all mechanical.

My first watch as an 8th birthday present, a fair few years ago now.

This one has a fantastic blue dial & I should really organise a strap to wear it regularly again. :yes:

I'm very glad to see that there is now a Watch Forum Sekonda club as I am a bit of a Sekonda collector. When it comes to collecting mechanical watches, Sekonda examples are still widely available at low prices, and for the quality of the watches they are amazingly good value. I also like quartz Sekondas and have many in my collection, including a number of chronographs. I see that you have now put that Sekonda steel chrono up for sale, dear carlgulliver, and I would hope that you have a taker for it. I already have a few Sekonda steel chronos, and I am now looking more for the one tenth of a second varieties, but your example is very nice.:)

Discovered this one when going through Ruthie's Dad's possessions after he passed away recently:

20210326_172226

I've sent a PM to @simon2 asking for an idea of cost to repair it, but not had a reply yet. Maybe Russian watches are not his thing, or perhaps he's too busy.  Not really a problem, we're not in a rush to fix it, and Ruthie doesn't even remember her Dad wearing it, so not particularly sentimental either, but it would be great to see it running again anyway.

It only runs for a few secs when shaken, and the winder won't turn, so I guess it must be over wound, or maybe just needs a strip down and good clean inside.  The hands move smoothly when the crown is pulled out, and the day/date changes fine, so I'm hoping it's not terminal and we can get it working again.  The bracelet is quite unusual, and complete, but the clasp needs replacing.  Might be easier to swap to a nice strap instead.

You need to delete 9 out of the 10 links in the post you quoted, and just leave the one you are talking about mate.

Am using an ancient old tablet that I can't figure out how to delete the others with , the one i'm referring to is the blue faced 23 jewel with the red second hand , the last one of the links in my original post although I don't remember my father's having the red seconds

Hi, apologies for the delay replying, I have only just seen your post. 
The watch doesn’t have any references on the case back or inner back I am afraid. The movement is a calibre 2209

Sekonda de Luxe

& if you search online using that there are some very similar watches. 
Also saw this https://www.watchuseek.com/threads/sekonda-de-luxe-caliber-2209-23-jewels.872235/ which has some information on the de Luxe models that may be interesting. 
I hope this is helpful. :)
