  12. Hi all Seiko Alpinist SARB017 back in rotation. I haven't worn this for a while, but it is quite captivating when the light catches the sunburst. Slightly smaller than my usual wear at 38mm.

  17. I binned pb for Flickr - big improvement and not too time consuming to do did someone say quartz? Still trying to find a decent 18mm strap that will take a 14mm buckle, but isn't very thick as it won't clear the watch case if it is a thick leather

  20. Bought through the Sales section, a big thank you to It'Salivejim and, of course, Roy :-) At 40mm bezel diameter it is the biggest watch I own and I was a bit worried that I would be swamped by it. However, the strap is actually remarkably comfortable and seems to flow off the lugs beautifully, in such a way that it wears smaller than one would think. Im also loving the "Root Beer" colour; having only seem this in pictures I did not appreciate how great it really looks! Not too garish or in your face, just refined, subtle and a refreshing change from blacks and blues! Im going to experiemnt with a few leather straps I have, see if I can marry the colours... J

  37. A good guide would be to look at the price ticket. If it's too cheap, that will be the biggest giveaway An alternative is to post a few photos on here, preferably with the case back opened. Our experts will spot a fake a mile away, and if you send it to them they will even take a hammer to it, free of charge

  40. lol can never save enough. Its good to see more watch stores being open there. I remember when only Tag was around but now there's some real watch making brands you wouldn't normally see in outlets. Problem is I get about 10 minutes to look at the watches and 10 hours in clothes and bags shops with the MRS.

  48. Simple problem with an even simpler solution. The cannon pinion has lost it's friction and it is a simple repair to restore the friction and fix the problem. This happens due to a lack of lubrication and on vintage movements with a date (day) it happens because there is no quickset and you have to spin the hands round to set the date, anytime you adjust the time and move the hands round with the crown, you are wearing out the cannon pinion clutch. Most times you only need to restore the friction not replace parts and if you do need parts, it's only the cannon pin, not a bunch of stuff...

  50. I know there are many learned and technical replies about this matter but I do tend to be in Roger's (RWP) camp on this one. Common sense and an avoidance of obviously strong magnetic fields seems to do the trick. After all, if mechanical watches, both past and present, were that sensitive to magnetic fields, the market for such watches would have plummeted long ago. After all, one just cannot go around constantly worrying that one's watch is suddenly going to be adversely "magnetized."
