  1. https://www.thewellmadeclock.com/tag/time-savings-clock/ Is this what you have? An explanation is on the page. It may be the "lock feature" has been disabled or removed to allow normal running. I remember these and similar to be used for renting a radio as well.

  4. Gimli, was working from my old android tablet and cut and paste doesn't hack it for the link. Scott, thanks for the edit - might have got it changed except knew I was out of time. The strap is the new NOVIS version, you just can't see it! I dunno' if it's worth so much, but it's a cracker IMO. Seems to be in excellent condition - -
  5. I have a search on the bay for Lewis's watches ( mainly were made by TIMEX for Lewis's the Department store) and today this showed up. Absolutely bloody lovely PW with complications.

    Royal Mail to bring out Dad`s Army stamps

    Check your local area for a "stamp shop" or philatelic supplies - - some may have special arrangements for FDC's whereby they can arrange for them to be hand stamped locally with a clear date stamp and not the generic "through the machine" cancellation. Obviously you will pay more for this as a service? It's a pity Wormington on Sea is fictional, as that would have been perfect Otherwise unused "mint" might be a way to go, one of each denomination kept in the correct pocketed pages from a philately shop/supplier.
  8. Should be possible = = try an email to Greg at Woodland Technical, he can be good at this sort of thing --
  9. Wasn't that on the "Homes under the Hammer" TV show? - - and that was the "after" picture!

    Great Countryfile tonight.

    Yes, we watched it OK. Great show. Many many years ago, I worked for a company as a Service Engineer, holding a Royal Warrant. Was working in Dundee at a client's office, and the office phoned me to go to Balmoral as both machines needed fettling. Fired up the Mini-van and offski, arrived at Balmoral estate "tradesman's" entrance and it was teeming down, had been all day. Security gave me strict instructions on route to take, and not go off the track as I would get bogged down. I head up towards the castle and lo and behold there's a grey Landy coming towards me. I thought "sh*t" I'm going to get bogged, it was single track. No, lights flashed and the Landy pulls off and I drive past waving thanks to the lady with the Barbour Jacket and headscarf who was driving. I've been a fan of HM ever since !
  14. The one in the Ad has had the cow slurry cleaned off Are they as tough now? TIMEX? Not really if you want mechanical, they don't make mecanicals nowadays - - but then to-day's IRONMAN type ranges are fairly tough. like G-shock but a tad cheaper, although I would agree they are not likely as tough as G-SHOCK. (I still like 'em )
