Just a further heads up regarding the AMJ watches Seiko sale.
I bought the SRPC31 & SSG013 and they are in 100% perfect condition - with tags and in untouched condition.

I suspect they have bought a shed load of older models from Seiko, but first time experience and all seems good.
The SSG013 is completely dead, but it's solar so hoping that will show some life in the next day or two.

After posting about self adjusting watches, or watches you can adjust if they are fast or slow. Someone posted about the Tissot Calibrator. I now want one and found what looks like a stonking deal on Newegg, but fulfilled by Watchgrabber...is this too good to be true

https://www.newegg.com/global/uk-en/bul ... 0183VV6803

The first photo shown is of a Hamilton the rest are of Tissot. I went to the trouble of setting up and account and it works out at £361 shipped to UK with all customs and Taxes. This is very very cheap for a hi beat Sellita movement and sapphire. What do you guys think?

I think that was me, but it's a Bulova Calibrator and personally looking at WatchGrabbers feedback on newegg I wouldn't be a buyer.

I’d steer clear, personally, especially as they have the main pic as a Hamilton GMT with a description of a Silver Bulova. Who knows what you might get, if anything?!

The Hamilton would be more expensive, but I know what you mean

Replacement arrived this morning, at least it’s working. After an empty Breitling travel pouch arrived yesterday, so CS not as good as previously reported.

Also, It’s got a $200 price tag attached, so his RRP of £230 a little optimistic.

By the way!, best of luck adjusting bracelet. It’s got me beat and I’ve changed all kinds. This has got to be the worst design in history. Watch almost ended up in the bin :oops: , at least the bracelet will end up there and I’ll put a strap on it.

If the one I've ordered is the same I will just pop down to the local jewellers and let them do it for £10 :thumbup:

Anyone after a watch box? £29 is the cheapest I've ever seen these. Same price on the Dulwich wesbite too. I have a couple already, and they're good quality inside and out.
