Nigel, I know just how well that watch of yours is going to do, and if it's the same as it was when I wore it, you'll do extremely well indeed... :)

I'm in with my Valjoux 7750 which I like wearing for long periods, so I'm in.... :thumbsup:

I'm honoured Sir its just become a bit more special now! I wondered who the one family owner was. I love it. Its the first watch I know I will keep and why I sold my modern Omega qtz. The quality is amazing and I secretly expect it to do rather better than most peoples!:notworthy:

Yes it was in my family from new and I've owned it for the last few years and I'm really pleased that you like it, it really is a great little watch and the only reason I let it go was that my hands now suffer from arthritis and I have real trouble with small winders. It really is a very accurate watch and a joy to wear, so I'm really glad that you own it now and it has a good home...:)

That is really special to know for me Mike. Rest assured it is staying with me forever. It is a Birth year watch for me I was born in December 72. I had my eye on it since summer with Scott. But various watches got in the way. For some reason though I kept going back to look at it! When I received it I fell in love with the quality in the cut of the case and the sheer class of the whole thing. It is just so cleanly designed. The condition is exemplary. I wear it every day. So rest assured it is getting enjoyed and appreciated! I feel a bit unworthy now!:thumbsup:

It is actually the reason which inspired this thread as the time keeping is amazing! You have blown my cover:laugh:

If the king seiko wasn't temporarily out of commission I'd be putting my chips on that. In fact I might add that as well. Swiss vs Japanese,  electronic vs mechanical.

I'd throw my CCCP in as well but I'd have to wear it on my ankle

:laugh: :laugh:

I see we've already got a few excuses from the Seiko's boys

:biggrin:

Are you callin' me yella ? That's fightin' talk where I come from !:aggressive:

As I understand it a grace period has been allowed so I guess I'll go double wristed and hope I can keep the DX going. Will set it (it hacks, as does the Hamiton) at 8 this morning.
