Oops, ended up with my first Vostok

Yes @WRENCH I know I've over paid and they are cheaper if I would wait for stock at meranom.

Still waiting for my hip op, bemoaning my discomfort and wanted something pretty and shiny to clear me up!

Relisted and I keep looking at that middle "A". I know PRATina as a name alone should be funny, but that middle "A"......

The thought, honestly, never crossed my mind. I only use Meranom because they usually have a better choice.

I'm a genuinely quite keen on this watch, if any of the extremely knowledgeable folk on here that research so well such as @spinynorman, @martinzx, @Karrusel or @scottswatches, have a few minutes and some knowledge to share about it, I would be extremely grateful.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Mens-Smiths-Watch-Swiss-Quartz-6-Jewels-Excellent-Condition-/393425962680?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

I don't have any vintage quartz, I think this one has a lot of charm and the fact it comes boxed makes me even more keen. Plus it's a look that I like a lot.

Any ideas on the approximate age, or anything to do with the watch in the advert?

 

My main concern is it has run through 3 week long listings without anyone taking it, is it a lemon or a dud?

British watches aren't my field, but I'm suspicious of that watch because of the logo (SMI|THS), which I can't find on another watch anywhere. The sub-brand "Swiss Quartz" doesn't come up either. The movement is a Harley Ronda 375, which is obsolete now, but seems to have been around since the 1980s, judging by these.

My success rate with vintage quartz is poor, you can very easily end up with a dead watch that no one wants to repair.

I don't believe that watch has anything at all to do with Smiths as we know it.  I have never seen any Smiths watch from the eighties, nor with a quartz movement.

Avoid

My search found an Astral Quartz, assumed to be Smiths since it was their brand, and the apparently short-lived Quasar, but both from the seventies.

@yokel didn't tell me that Moser make 'sensible' sized watches (for midgets like I)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224507363787?hash=item3445ae81cb:g:eRAAAOSwqTVgThBz

Is there much money in child trafficking, as I have stock.

 

You didn't ask. The Mayu (now rebranded as Endeavour) is a lovely watch  --  but I'd prefer richer colours than that example.

Having said that, there is a really rather nice example in rose gold and white available at https://www.chrono24.co.uk/hmosercie/mayu---id14039479.htm

Spotted this interesting Rolex on eBay. Like the offset dial, I can only assume that is so the pilots can read it when their hand are on throttle and stick. Look a reasonable price for a Rolex assuming it is real. 

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/164958051352?hash=item2668441c18:g:JVkAAOSw0uNg7e2j

Looks very much like a "marriage watch" to me. (Modified pocket watch/movement).

I’d stay well away from that. The dial says “16 World’s Records” which is enough for me.

Is that just because it's on the dial? It's well documented on the caseback. eg https://www.vintagewatchstraps.com

Just now, relaxer7 said:

Initially, yes. I’d only ever known this be a case back thing but I’ll have to correct myself because after a bit of a search about it appears that it did occasionally appear on some dials. That said, I agree with Wrench’s marriage watch comment rather than the military pilots watch description.

I'd been looking at this Elliot Brown, labelled as a ladies watch (but 38mm and not exactly feminine in nature imo).

Brand new (according to the seller, who has been on for 5+ years and whilst not super busy has 100% positive feedback) and as it was in my watch list I just received an offer at £90 with free p&p, so they might even take £80-85 if anyone was interested.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Elliot-Brown-Ladies-Kimmeridge-Black-Leather-Watch-/224536422886?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

 

Another I stumbled across that I liked the look of a so searched further to learn a little more:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VANDAAG-Schallmauer-Sound-Barrier-Heritage-Chronograph-F104G-/265226869445?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

A solid review here (as an aside, regarding that thread about reviews, I do like this guys style of review, runs quickly through all of the specs without a load of waffle about himself, and shows the watch well in the videos with just a minimal amount of opinion which he clearly shows as his opinion)
