Recommended Posts

Can't believe it, the year goes so fast, time for the underwater egg-boiling championships again, and an outing for my 200m WR chrono from Squale ...

Morning,

Pulled this one from the hat today  -  a 37mm Lindor from the 1940s with a seldom-seen 15j Juillard (Bulla) 46 which keeps plugging away despite its somewhat exotic tarnishing.

Originally thought to have been French, but discovering the “Swiss Made” tucked under the bezel put paid to that notion and the hunt continues.

Regards.

1975 Seiko KQ, having got this and the QZ lead me to investigate a bit and this would have been the first year of KQ production before ending in 1981. Not sure what replaced them?

No photo description available.

To my amateur eyes. that movement looks a lot like an FHF movement - 70 or that whole family, some of which (according to Dr. Ranfft) were available with 15 jewels

Shown here as Waltham

Engineering drawing Dave? I can remember doing that at school in the late 1980's, part of Technical Drawing, no computers then though i bet theyve made that job a lot easier?

Good spot Nige. It’s the calendar we have in the office at work. A charity one put together by a Welsh mini club we deal with.

Many thanks for your observations.

Indeed, there are general similarities, but you'll see that the balance are of quite different shapes and the ratchet wheels are different sizes. Also, the angles of the bridges are different, as are their tails.

Today's effort had been ID'd from the dial side during a tear-down.

Regards.

There is an annual mini run/meet to llandudno every year. That one on the calender isn’t mine. Mine is at the halfway stage in its restoration, painted and rolling again, electrics, trim and engine to go.:tongue:

Technical Drawing was my thing at school, it just seemed to come naturally to me, which led to a 2 year technical illustration course at college, followed by a career from 1978 to today, producing artwork for parts catalogues and maintenance manuals, which is what you can see on the screen behind that ma-hoo-sive Bulova :tongue:  You're right, there were no computers when I did my training, but I haven't used a pencil and paper for drawing since around 1990.  And yes, it is a lot easier now.

In case you haven't seen it, my website shows some of the stuff I've been doing over the years: http://davepatey-illustration.com/
