Walking with my flightmaster to be used for telling of the time only....probably :rolleyes:

A pilots watch an a top visible to passing aeroplanes? It's a bold choice :thumbsup:

Seiko 6N42-00F0 from Feb. 2005 ish ( I can't see this being 1995)

Bought from a certain auction site with a scratched crystal, and a bracelet so full of 'wrist cheese' that I could have grown fruit and veg.

I don't like big watches with tiny movements (6N42 is tiny), but Seiko have an uncanny knack of making black dialled, silver hands/indices watches that are stunning.

Have a great Sunday guys!

Spooky, just sitting here trying to think of some "big watch, tiny movement" pun as that popped up.

Nothing wrong with the way these 'big watch, tiny movement' watches look, but my heart always sinks a bit when I take the back off a watch and see the 'heart' of a big watch that's so tiny.

Anyone that has ever owned the revered Casio Duro/Marlin will be somewhat disappointed the first time they change the battery.

My rule of thumb is that if there is a full indices next to the date then there is a good chance of a tiny movement. @Always"watching"mentioned a couple of new watches the other day, Locksley of London being one of them, the date window on one was so close to the centre of the dial that it had to be any rather small movement in a fairly large watch.

Maybe there should be a thread for 'Big Watch. Tiny Movement' (BWTM) not showing the front of the watch, but showing the movement in a huge case.

I don't know if this is pre or post 1980. Where it came from or who made it.. but I have a sneaky suspicion that it is unusually accurate for such a fugly thing! 

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the "Swiss made", Trafalgar!

This fine timepiece 'probably' debuted at either Topman or Tesco and instantly became rare as no-one purchased any.

It's size 44x35x11mm is only dwarfed by the amount of dust that has accumulated in it's non-water resistant casing.

So I am going to wear this today, safe in the knowledge that only I have the ability to appreciate this fine example of horrorology!

Joking aside, I'm going to find out if it's time keeps as good on the wrist as it's accuracy reading gave me last night.

Oh wow! Look! So THATS what a clean one looks like. 

I'm stunned and amazed.

Edit- that guy said it is more than 40 years old.. it looks pure 80s to me. He also paid too much.. mine was £10 (including delivery). :thumbs_up:
