Watch of Today

Recommended Posts

Today I grabbed this pretty much as I got up late after barely any sleep and it was the first watch I laid my hands on. It is a Jaz Paris Quartz fashion watch.

Thanks for all the comments on yesterday's Audax, it seems to have been well received.

Today it's a Vertex Revue.

One of my smaller vintage watches but very comfy and an excellent time keeper.

Hi all,

 

Wearing this Vulcain 'Meteor II' today. Don't you just love these funky names? I've always had a soft spot for Vulcain..a lot of it is due to the name itself and the logo (as on the caseback below)..

 

Inside is nothing spectacular.. just an ETA2452...tried and tested (sorry no pics)!

It's a Mondia for me today.

My first "proper" watch was a Mondia Sea Scout. It was my 16th birthday present from my parents and I still have it, but it was the start of my interest in Mondia watches and I now have 5 of various vintages. This one was an eBay non-runner that required no more than a service and clean up.

Nice job on that Sportmatic BL.

Geo I reckon you earned that test drive several times over.

I was out on site today so went for something a little more robust than I would for the office.

Citizen Promaster, a nice big solid reliable chunk.

I love the dial on that Omega.

 

Today I grabbed this Seiko Alarm Chronograph watch to be my watch of the day. You don't see many of these around anymore or fully working ones, especially considering that they used to be so popular at one time.

    • I'm Malcolm and from New Zealand and I have a small collection of watches 
    • Hi there, I have inherited this box lot of watch stems, please could anyone be able to decipher the numbers written on the packets please, some I can find using google but I am not sure of the way I need to describe them , thank you...  I am not using this site for selling purposes … just to gather information from anyone who might be able to help...  and also check out my large glass advertising piece … I am from new zealand
    • Just googled dial washer and the first part is definitely a dial washer - not sure if I need it though. I will struggle to photo the other part it is so small - I am of out now will have a go later today.  It is only about .5mm thick.  I was wondering if it is some sort of strap to secure the movement in place.
    • Hello everyone. This is my first proper post here I hope someone can help me to identify this "issue". I have a Vostok watch from the 80's with the 2409 movement. It keeps good time (within 3 seconds a day). Beat error is 0.1 ms and the amplitude fluctuates between 240° and 265° depending on the position. The issue with the watch is that I hear a strange sound that only goes away when losening the balance cock screw. As soon as the screw starts putting the minimum amount of pressure to the balance cock the strange sound begins. Currently I don't have the proper tools to handle the movement aside from proper watchmaker's screwdrivers so I cannot take out the balance cock assembly to check if something seems off. I have attached two audio files, the first one with the balance cock screw properly tightened. The second one with the balance cock screw lose. Excuse the poor quality audio but is the best I could do with what I have available.   Hopefuly someone can help me identify this issue. 2409 sample 1.wav 2409 sample 2.wav
