All titanium SMP (2231.80) today.

Morning...   1930 Silver cased HARWOOD 'AUTORIST' Automatic. [img]https://i.imgur.com/i4q6mUD.mp4[/img]

1940s Recta made by Muller & Vaucher with their own 17j G2 movement. This one’s case back isn’t Recta-signed but, instead, gold plated inside and out along with the fixed bars.

The addition of the “Majex” wordmark on the dial suggests that this watch may have been introduced to UK by Marchand & Jobin, importers principally of Majex-branded watches, but also of Recta and Minerva models.

New arrival, from Moldova ...


200m Vostok auto 'ministerial', not the best time to take a picture, but only 15 minutes till my next meeting.

Fixed lugs.


Needs some lume in the bezel, where a pip would be.  I can do that ...

Hope your day is going well.

This arrived today (ESA9158 Swissonic), bought for less than £20 as 'not working'...........


Put a new battery in it and when I put the back on it burst into life:thumbs_up:. Can only assume that the seller had not tried replacing the back when he tested it:wink:.  It did need regulating though as it was running about 3 minutes a day fast. When I opened it up to regulate it I found that the tag on the +ve battery connector, that makes contact with the side of the battery was missing, but my stock of Swissonic spares furnished a replacement, allowing 'live' regulation on the Timegrapher with the back off.:thumbsup:

You mean you’ve done no more steps :whistle:

Apparently I'm up to 189 steps now - But I'm not sure if that is just today, or in total since the start of the week... :laughing2dw:
