I picked up another unsung hero of the horology world, a genuine Casio F-91W (and a fake counterpart for comparison).

The new fake cost £1.99 shipped from some dubious source in China, so time will tell if that was a wise purchase.

The genuine Casio came in slightly more expensive, but was still priced well within the rules of the 404 club.

Another bargain bin HMT - this time a Kohinoor.

It looks like a nice clean example with no frankne-nonsense. No doubt in need of a service (and a new strap).

I blew the budget slightly for this one, but I think it was worth the extra quid.

The world's scruffiest and thus, one of the world's cheapest Timex Marlins from 1978.

The seller claims it "runs sometimes", so running all of the time will be the first priority, followed by a complete cosmetic overhaul.

I suspect the hair-puller band may be for the bin too, but I'll make a call on that when I see it. I think the previous owner may have spent some time painting "stuff", including  it seems, the crystal.
