  1. These look like Lucas side markers either original or repro. These were fitted to a wide range of British cars and commercial vehicles in the thirties and forties. These were often used to provided a sidelight but also as a direction indicator in later years. Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Very attractive watch. I like shiny pretty things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m going through some medical challenges that will leave me an armchair horologist. It’s very calming to log into WRT for the sometimes scholarly, always good humoured banter. People from around the world doing what people do best, making friendships, sharing information. Long may it continue! Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lovely cat. If you can grab them give them some wormer otherwise you’re feeding the worms. Hope the relationship works out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. In my experience, ladies watch bracelets can be very frustrating and because the more complex design of a fashion watch bracelet isn’t always matched by good engineering. If you have through holes in the links, you may find a pin may be less frustrating than a spring bar. Pins don’t have to come from a watch spares supplier. I have used sections of a paper clip, bits of guitar string and bits found in the bottom of that special drawer in the kitchen where you keep the dog lead, bits of string and batteries that might work (but never do). And the gratitude for the repair sometimes makes it all worthwhile! Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Wow. We’re putting a lot of thinking into this and the plot seems to be lost. 1. A movement doesn’t know when midnight is in any precise way. Most watches change date between 23:00 and 01:00. Rotating the dial 5 minutes(time not angular rotation) is unnoticeable. 2. The date aperture can be anywhere on the dial. As long as 9 is showing on the ninth, it works. You may need to adjust the printing of the date ring if that matters. 3. The printing of the dial and positioning of the dial feet is determined by the case and movement orientation, not by anything intrinsic to the movement. Naturally you will find some watches that break these rules, but not many. Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. How often do you need to loosen and screw down the crown? I do it twice a year for BST changes and occasionally to correct the date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Dead right Vinn3. But the knife has a handle and the blade is more robust. If the razor blade works for you then go for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I use the jewellers hammer and my Swiss Army Knife. Safer than a razor blade. Neil Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stripped Screw Pin on bracelet

    If you have a bracelet pin extractor you may be able to apply pressure to the threaded end while turning the slotted end with a screwdriver. Apply heat to the threaded part of the link at the same time. No guarantees but worth a try. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Inside except for two of them. They have access to an outside run with plenty of space and fresh air. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We have 30 cats so I must be gaining half an hour every minute! Mind I don’t love all of them all of the time. Worming tablets usually involve some blood loss on my part! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
