Thanks for the info. The Rodeo is remarkably similar to this.
.. but perhaps is closer to this.
It has the cruder balance, but a different "shock" spring arrangement as opposed to what looks suspiciously like glue on the example here.
The "LiJac" is certainly from the same stable, but even simpler in its construction.
Hi all, was just wondering what was the very first proper watch other forum members ever owned? In my case it was a Nidor Vibraflex 17 jewel manual wind, that my nan bought me in 1966. Hopefully one will pop up on eBay as I have lost the original !
I usually get to tinker with it later on when it’s dark. I just bought two 15W cool light - light bulbs for the room, it helps a little but it’s not great, it’s too high in the ceiling. Ideally I could do with something behind me (from the side) and fairly close to cancel the shadows but having a floor lamp would be very awkward. Ideally I’d like something I could put on the desk, sort of a spot light that’s powerful and I could move about and direct the light where I need it.
