@JerseyMo has it right, from a distance and at a glance these two are incredibly simiUn

Unlike the Movie "Twins" with Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger,  both these are handsome, stylish, healthy and strong, one is sensible and affordable there other is a status symbol and has held it's value

Omega on the left, Timex on the right... They look like eyes, starting at me, following me!:startle:

I'm so glad this topic popped back up. I'm new here and hadn't seen it. Blue is probably my favorite dial color, in contention with champagne. Even so, looking through my collection I appear to o

My Swiss homage to the same Omega watch, Camy Kings Club.....

131283359_CamyKingsClubwrist1.thumb.jpg.ce7d2181dbcce6fea298b30d79267ddd.jpg

It dates from 1969 and is absolutely mint condition and came with the original strap (now replaced with a genuine crocodile one), a tag and a service booklet.....

  The movement stamped 'Britain', I've been looking for a while and I have never seen another Black dial Marlin with the gold block indices. The silver case may be an over the pond thing, I'll ck the 'bay'

Thanks

Back on 'blue dialled watches', I finished sorting this one out today, day and date change were 12 hours apart :blink:. Turned out to be that the day change finger had somehow jumped over its stop on the plastic date change finger....:startle:.

Anyway once working correctly it deserved a nice new crystal and some wrist time..:thumbsu:

Its a 6923-8000 from June 1982, not a quartz calibre that I've come across before, rather surprised to find that the usual bronze 'C' clip that usually is used to hold the day wheel down had been replaced with, a very much more expensive to produce, solid ring with a sort of collet on the bottom, that clips onto the tube when pushed down..........

The blue dial Presage is one of my all time fave Seiko watches!

It really is an Incredible watch, the detail is unbelievable for the price point... Looks killer on a tan strap too!

6139-8039 NOS. 

Love it but I'm in two minds about should wearing it with a solid links bracelet, or let it go to a genuine collector.

Does the bracelet bother you? Do you have a preference?

In general I love bracelets. The original, with folded links one is light but flimsy by today standards. Good  solid links ones are made for other case references, but not for this one. No big deal really.

My restored Seiko Kinetic purchased and worn since 2004 SMY093P1
Rotor removed and running from a non rechargeable battery. Sapphire crystal fitted.
 

Seiko has always had a keen eye for the color blue. May I ask why you opted for a traditional battery over using the kinetic feature?

Hi, the reason is that I don't wear the watch everyday anymore like I used to. In my experience the kinetic batteries seem to go bad if not regularly charged. So for me it would be a waste of money to fit a new kinetic battery.

While I'm generally not a fan of the Submariner aesthetic, it is a beautiful watch. The shade of blue is very appealing. I like how they color matched the hubs of the hands so they kind of disappear into the dial, it's a nice touch.

    • so now we have the ultimate? How do we deliver it?  
    • Russia is member of the Universal Postal Union and as such their Post must accept pieces for any destination. International tariffs link https://www.pochta.ru/documents/10231/726549028/УУС+2021_.pdf/ Interstingly unlike hey do not group destinations by listing orcontinents but by distance - however measured.  Then any individual seller is free to decide where they do ship and where not. I suggest that you contact the seller and inquire, he may be just be unfamiliar with remote destinations prices. 
    • I don't get your point. If you make or maintain a measurement tool, of any kind, you need a reference for calibration or just validation. It can be more or less accurate but it has to be there, that's metrology 101. You can have all the atomic clocks and Network Time Protocol to disseminate time, the issue is how to bring that accuracy to a standalone device and know if it is reliable.  Otherwise one can get into watercolor painting or other interests that do not require that kind of approach at all. 
    • Material houses like cousins, eslinger, ofrei, julesborel do carry watch parts, though I doubt you can find a sign crown for this. Familiarize with  Dr ranfft's very popular database for good general information on most calibers, just google ETA 1260 ranfft. Good luck
    • You can use any crown of your liking and that matches the pendant tube. Since you haven't posted pictures of the case one can't tell how it should like.  Two piece stems are easily available, even on Ebay.    As answered sometime. In the past service manuals did not exist because the watchmaker was supposed to known his trade well enough.  Parts lists were issued to ease identification and ordering, very many including for the one you have can be downloaded from Cousins UK.
