  1. Seiko Moonphase

    That makes sense. Thanks Chopin Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Tissot. Below your target price but you get a lot of watch for your money. Top end would have to be IWC in my book but probably too pricey for you. Cheers Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just bought a Seiko 7T36 7A10 as a non runner. Fortunately a clean of the battery contacts has it ticking merrily. The gold plate is a little worn and the case needs a sympathetic clean. Crystal has seen better days and a new strap is needed. Overall, good gently worn condition. When I’ve searched for spares the watch is described as Age of Discovery with crazy prices considering I paid £17. Am I missing something here? Pictures will follow.

  4. Tap and die

    BA stands for British Association. This is an old Imperial thread specification that covers small sizes Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. 2824 movement or Clone.

    Same question again? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes I understood the point. All I meant was that quartz movements are less varied than mechanical watches (on the whole). Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Clasp extenders on eBay too Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Balance wheels aren’t really standardised but a dozen quartz movements might cover 90% of the watches you come across. Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Most of these movements are quartz. When repairing a quartz watch, a new movement is often the most cost effective fix. The same can be true of inexpensive mechanical watches. That’s why most new bare movements are bought. You could as you suggest build your own watch, and some folks will rescue a dead mechanical watch with a quartz movement.

  11. That’s a lot of fuss for a battery change! Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Buffing; Myth or Fact?

    If you want sharp crisp detail on your watch with no scratches or dings, leave it in the box. If you wear and enjoy your watch it will get scratched, dropped, banged against things and show signs of use. You can then make a choice, polish it and make it shiny again or live with the patina. What you can’t do is make it look new again. Enjoying my watches every day... Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s boxed in the original box. Adds a lot of value you know... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
