    Help, is this a watch Q made?

    It's a disposable watch? I don't think you're meant to replace the cell pack but rather toss the whole thing in the bin and buy another one? OTOH, if (and it's a BIG IF) you can find a replacement cell pack, or make one up yourself, I can tell you DO NOT try unsoldering the wires from the watch end but instead cut and join at the cell pack end using insulated sleeving to cover the joints. The components on the board are Surface Mounted and without specialist knowledge and soldering gear, a normal solder iron WILL almost certainly lift parts off the board. BTW, I think Gimmllii is correct, and the capped button on the side hides the lens. (Of course holding your arm out like a robot to film kind of defeats the spy element/ )

    Oyster Watch Co

    A query for those who may know? Is this perchance some kind of entry level Rolex? I'm thinking "Oyster" and the "missing" screw down crown, and the screw back look of it, and the nice look about the movement - - Always willing - - could be today's new fact!

    Long service award

    Not me, being a stingy canny Scot, I will have to re-order a graduated candle to replace the one I've had for years, from when the sun dial succumbed to moss and verdigris

    Help please

    Have you Googled the company name and address? This will usually bring up a goodly bit of information, and then a Google on "Hallmarks" should do the same for any marks on the case. Good Luck in your info quest!
  12. 'sabout right -- but Ingersol(l) limped (limps) on a brand name via beng produced in the UK separately at one time. I have no idea what to-day's situation is regarding Ingersol with or without the extra "L".
  13. Phone Goldsmiths and ask when they had such a gimmick?

    DIY LED clock kit

    Well done to you both! No holdng you back now then ? Is the TWF LED clock club born?
  15. Looks nice enough Roy, I take it they've "twisted" the movement from having the sub seconds above the 6 marker and the crown and date around 4 to the position shown. So it's a Seiko innards?
