Have had one for sale for six months!...
Not even a nibble
A couple went for silly money a while back I noticed. Can't understand the lack of appreciation, lovely watch IMHO - which is worth zilch, obviously :silent:

Re: Insurance

I used to add cover for my watches (over the max) but it is very expensive. As Paul says, the insurers demand you take all sorts of measures to cover all probabilities of loss. What's the point? Take the measures anyway (eg proper safe, two German Shepherds :lol: ) and skip the big premiums for cove...

Interesting watch and pretty rare I would have thought. I too, like the dial, but I had not noticed the GMT complication until you pointed it out. Nice find!

Re: Automatic watch winder

You can find the turns per day requirements for all CW watches in the Archive Spreadsheet. Open and click on the TPD/Battery tab. Hmmm, I had not noticed that, Kip. So, I have reset one of my turntables to 650 TPD and put my Seiko with PR indicator on it to see how it does. My last winder (angled t...

Re: CWL of the day

The one that started it all. Love it! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181213/7fa178b7028456fc47634bf5ee472aa1.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk That is a stunner, superb colour combination while remaining understated and day-date too. I'd be very tempted if one came up though it would compe...

Fortis Hedonist for this evening, getting a lot of wrist time ATM. Clean vintage look, light catching prisms for the odd numerals and double sunk dial.

Re: C9 big day-dates on ebay

Oh. :( :( :( Only kidding though, you did write "I have one and it ain't going nowhere." from which I assumed you wanted to sell (double negative = positive). :wink: :lol: Seriously, I think it is just one of those things. It often happens that you can't find a particular watch For Sale, notably wh...

Re: Automatic watch winder

900 TPD alternative directions in a vertical config works well for the Trident, the SW200/ETA2824 winds in both directions.

In my experience, the vertical config winders work more effectively than the angled type, but that could just have been my old unit which didn't keep the watches wound.

C9 big day-dates on ebay

What it is that so many are up for sale at the moment? I counted 5 currently available and a few have gone through (at decreasing prices) recently. strange how these things go in phases, but why have these seemingly fallen out of favour? Theories? Full disclosure: I have one and it ain't going nowhe...
