This one today, Eterna-matic 100, from 1968. With its heavily patinated (or knackered depending on your perspective) dial I think it goes well with jeans, but that's just me.

Movement shot for those, like me, who like to see such things.

60s Zim, successfully de-magnetised at the nth attempt (thanks @WRENCH) and staying spot on - perhaps it should go back in the sales corner ....

But it's looking quite good on the Poljot bracelet (nothing else does :laugh:)

I think I need to, it only started playing up when I tried to sell it!  And erm....  I have got a new 8 section display case, so it could go into a 'second line' of soviet reserves. 

Oh, what do you think of this?  I put silly bids on two watches last night expecting to get one maybe, got them both ha ha ha.  But Chaika (Seagull) are generally ladies watches, they use small movements; but I have seen a few mens, often with a lot of 'pastry' round them and extended lugs that look a bit weird from the underside.  Anyway, I bought this one, do you think the hands and dial are asking to be lumed?  Anyone can chip in lol!  It's 35mm plus crown.

I'd leave them alone, and if that bezel is brass, a bit of a polish.

1950's Hourmaster by Louis Braham, made by Newmark?

Keeps good time and has the loudest tick of any watch I own. Not everyone's cup of tea, but, a little slice of British watch making history.

Who's that in the background? Answers on a postcard please.

Really weird I can't see your pictures, but seems other people can. Happens on Windows PC and Android tablet and it's only yours I can't see. @Roy any idea what would cause this?

The poster has not linked directly to an image, when I click on the link it asks me to login to google.
