  1. Hi. I have a temperamental Wittnauer Electronic. Its in pretty good physical condition. If you pm me your email i will send you some photos.

    Reards, Phil.

  2. Went into H Samuel yesterday and bought myself a Seiko SNN231P2, some very good savings at the moment, a lot of watches at 50% discount plus another 10%. Looks as if they are doing the same deals online. Might help someone? R
  3. Bullhead cheapies

    Was worth an ask ;-) I may just 'risk' it and order from overseas!

    Anyone fancy moving one of these on yet?
  5. Shame- butchered smiths...

    That looks familiar, I have one in the garage that has taken a liking to stopping, so at some point soon mine will be stripped and serviced, hope I don't find anything broken though.
  6. Yes, it is has a Jeco movement, they made a couple of styles, a round and a rectangular (as used by Smiths) this has one of the earlier, better made round movements before they cheapened them.

    I'm sure a local glazier would cut you a piece of glass to make it ok again. I have a bakelite Sectric on the wall in the garage, along with a vintage Gents of Leicester, though these clocks were common place a few decades back, I think they have 'character' now and it's nice to preserve and enjoy them.

    There is a lot of this going on, but to non clock orientated people, it has 'the look' and tells the time, it just bothers people like us!

    Oh no, not another tuning fork clock, I thought I knew about them all! That is lovely and will now be on the lookout for one of them too. Thanks for sharing
  10. Thank you David for hosting the photo and to Enrico for posting the Solari information. As for the movement, Solari produced the Cifra 3 in a range of movements, mains synchronous, and battery, motor rewound, tuning fork and finally quartz. The tuning fork version has to be my favourite though. The movement uses the resonance of a small electro-mechanically maintained tuning fork as a time base this drives the gear train via a magnetic 'escapement' which in turn drives the number flaps. I have a soft spot for Solari clocks... ask my wife !
  11. Posting images

    Hi thanks for your reply, I have tried copying the URL and deleting the unnecessary content, but this only opens up my photo bucket account and doesn't just post up the photo within the forum?
  12. Posting images

    Tried to upload photos from Photobucket, but I don't get the Direct link option there, only the IMG, but this will not put a photo on the forum page? Any ideas?
  13. Pics.. hopefully! I give up! They are over on TZ if you fancy a look, sorry.
  14. Can't seem to get pics to load...
