  1. WHEN USING A WATCH FOR DIVING ONE DOES NOT WANT THE BEZEL TO MOVE TOO EASILY. IF YOU ARE TIMING YOURSELF AT DEPTH OR ON A DECOMPRESSION STOP ON THE WAY BACK UP, THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS FOR THE BEZEL TO HAVE MOVED ACCIDENTALLY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF TIME YOU HAVE STAYED DOWN ON A DEEP DIVE AND ALSO YOU NEED TO KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN AT A DECOMPRESSION STOP FOR THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF TIME. THIS WAS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT BEFORE THE ADVENT OF MORE MODERN DIVE COMPUTERS - I ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK MY DIVE COMPUTER AGAINST MY WATCH
  2. Oil may help but it sounds to me like there is a bushing gone in the chime mechanism. It will work for a while then settle in to the worn bit and start acting erratically.
  3. PM me your snail mail and I'll get 'em away

  4. It still gives me goosebumps when I think about reading his name that day... I lost a total of 3 uncles to 3 different torpedoes in WWII! Lost but never forgotten, not for one second! Maybe I should look for a Bulova model, if I can find one cheap enough...
  5. I used to covet one when I thought it was in honour of The HMS ROYAL OAK sunk at Scapa Flow in 1939. I lost an uncle on her. Have been there including a visit to St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall Orkney where they turned the page of the HMS ROYAL OAK crew list book to show his name. Very emotional. I will keep an eye out for a Bulova, it would be the only one I could ever afford.
  6. Originally born in Winnipeg but I grew up bout 230KM north of you in the Ottawa Valley, CFB Petawawa & Pembroke. But the last place I lived was in Aylmer. I still go back once in a while. Headed back to Winnipeg in '79 then all the way to the Promised Land in '85. it's BC for me now...
  7. Welcome to a fellow Canuck! Where are you in Ontario? I grew up there.
  8. Just about any watchmaker tool you can think of. I was going to get into it more seriously and acquired almost a complete set of tools over the years. Now my hands are just not steady enough any more. Lathe, cleaning machine, timer, winders, staking tool, jewelling tool, crystal press, case openers, the list goes on. Even a percussion tool or two though maybe not as substantial as those used by Karrusel...
  9. I can use em in Kirky Mel if still available. . Rod
  10. They'll be deceased Gremlins if I can get my hands on them! The Citizen hands look like the wings of a WWII Fighter aircraft! I think it was a US Corsair...
  11. Somethings going on here... Ist - Seiko 7002-700A which I posted pics of a few weeks ago - Now the :"stem/crown won't work properly 2nd - Tissot 1853 PR100 which I also posted pics of a few weeks ago - 5:00 marker is floating around inside. 3rd - Citizen Eco-Drive Titanium Saphire WR100 which I think I also posted pics of a few weeks ago - top register hand came off and jammed between the hour & minute hand bending both. The list goes on... a world time day date that when the day changes & it does change but it does not show in the window. These are all watches I have worn less than 10 times! Nothing happened to them, they weren't dropped or hit against anything they just took ill! They are all in a separate container now, with various others which are not likely to see a wrist in my time anyway...can't afford to get them sorted.
  12. Terrible picture, it looks better in person.
  13. My condolences for your loss Roy.
