    I would say the Accutron 218 calibre is much more robust than the ESA tuning fork movements, as used in Omega f300s etc.

    Thank you BBC6M. Difficult to believe this sound is from 2017 and from South London. Love it!

    I've been a bit distracted with our house and my bikes over the last couple of months ---- all this good weather means I'd rather be outside than in a workshop. But it is raining today and I'm working on a few watches as I type.... Plus, opening website later today...I think

    It's been 5 days since we shook these Wood Pigeon chicks out of their nest . But they seem to be doing really well:

    A couple of days ago, we were removing strangulating honeysuckle from a whitebeam tree. We knew there was an old nest in the tree and there hadn't been any activity for months that we could see and it was too high to double check. How wrong were we . With all the tugging on the honeysuckle, we managed to dislodge these two from the nest: First response was "Oh no!", second response was "They are huge, what are they?" and third response was "God, they're ugly!". After a bit of Googling, it turns out that they are Wood Pigeon chicks and from what we've read, it seems Wood Pigeons are good parents and won't give up on their chicks easily.... As there was no chance of getting these chicks back into their broken / destroyed nest, and it was getting dark, we put them in shoe box and strapped it to the trellis under the tree they fell from. Next morning, a parent was feeding them : Two days later, chicks seem to be doing well but not the shoe box which is now full of sh*t and sagging somewhat with the weight of the chicks and parents. Any rain and it would turn to mush, so time to move them again. This time into a metal fruit bowl that has holes; built them a nest from twigs etc and they seem happy in it (very feisty during the move with lots of pecking of hands --- ungrateful things!). We also put the bowl higher into the tree, Again, the parents have found them and are feeding them. Not sure how this is going to end. They don't have a lot of cover although we have tried to shield them from the sun and predators. So far so good......
  15. any bikers here?

    My current "project" bike....it will be nice when it's finished (I hope!)
