Tyke wrote:Getting hold of entire matching movements for russian watches isn't that difficult as they produced rather a lot of them using the 'if it ain't broken don't fix it' philosophy of movement design. Basically, for something like this, as long as you have the original dial & hands everything else is interchangeable & available. There are lots of copies around, but generally they use incorrect hands, so anything without the sputik blob second hand is probably a 'homage'.

The hunt goes on......

Ah, fair enough :) I'm on the hunt for some chronograph parts for two of my Tissots that use Lemania mov'ts, but they're not in plentifull supply and don't tend to be cheap, so as you say.....the hunt goes on :wink:

Blimey 2 seiko 5 fathoms in the same random watch thread! shes catching on! Good choice, love mine :)

Little Tip wis: If you get a scatch on the domed hardlex you can buff it out using 1400 (or higher) grade wet and dry (a bit of silver polish to clean up helps after). if you do it in cirlces your left with a very light swirly pattern that can only be seen close up under direct light. only recommended for multiple scratches as prob not worth it for one or two, still looks pretty good after though!

Thanks for the tip. I'm pretty careful, so I hope it remains scratch free for a long time.

Btw,it's 50 fathoms, isn't it? After the Blancpain 50 fathoms, the very first diver I think: http://www.blancpain.com/fiftyfathoms/the_fifty_fathoms. A very classy look, good quality and affordable.

i really do love most of longines current lineup... they are making some seriously classy watches to suit all styles... from chunky and modern, to classic and understated. They have about 4-5 models i'd buy tomorrow if i had the cash

Too true! Every time i wear this one i think damn' i wish i had more longines!! This one has a 4 peice bracelet (the polished bits come away from the rest) and the rotor has that free spun feel of a 7750 (although i think is a 2893). Longines try so so hard with the quaility and build of there watches they should get more love in the watch world.
