Re: Non CW of the Day

I often ask myself why i buy luxury swiss watches and the answer is usally nothing more than i am feeble minded. For example, 1980 Seiko quartz from the golden era of quartz for £20 on ebay with original bracelet. Why do i need anything more than this: https://i.imgur.com/NFDteqG.jpg £20. +1 second ...

Re: Baselworld News 2019

For me the winners are Zodiac and Oris Oris and Tag Heuer for me but the Tags are not really that great, just more adequate tham the rest of the garbage this year. Even Seiko delivered a lot of overpriced, oversized hyperbole. Breitling seems happy in having no clue about which direction they want ...

The other Tudor leaks are just as bad. Driving up the site traffic though i imagine.

Re: which of these affordables for a knockabout watch?

Out of the two the Hammi is probably more reliable for smacking about. Personally id love a Merci Lmm-01 but for a decent cheap beater i fancy one of theae Vaers:

Re: Rolex Prince Ref : 912, 1934

Good observations mate. Any ideas how to ope the case back ? I assume you prise up the piece at the base of the case back ? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190316/d4e77a6aa49fb23f36a5a619988a7b78.jpg Yes id also assume a good caseback knife would do it but is it not silver? Looks like tarnished ...

Re: Rolex Prince Ref : 912, 1934

Thanks for that mate :thumbup: Looks the right font going by that photo but some differences alright. Could the dial shift slightly if dropped or something ? I think i have seen that on some vintage watches maybe?? Having looked at it a few times it may well be an illusion brought on by the angle o...

Re: Rolex Prince Ref : 912, 1934

Appreciate the info Pete ;) Yes I have looked at other Rolex Prince 912's and the numbers are a different font, saying that none were this early. I beleive it should look like this: https://i.imgur.com/kSaFqCi.jpg The auction estimate for the above was 7000 - 9000 CHF. It was made in 1930. Maybe th...

Re: Rolex Prince Ref : 912, 1934

To get it running an independent could perhaps do a total service for around £130. To me it looks a bit suspicious, im not outright saying it is but that dial is a bit off. For example how the 1, 2 and 3 hug the right side of the case but the 8, 9 and 10 do not and rather hug the minute track instea...

Nice watch, good to see a different colour to the Alpinist.
Do Hodinkee Seiko's come with a model number and tags, or is it just the Seiko US LE Hodinkee Alpinist?
Oh yeah, its got very own seiko model number and tags.

Cheers IAJ, likely be on ebay soon.
