  1. Watching the Abyss

    Is it the extended version, best version but you're in for a long night. Oh, the watch is a Seiko, right?
  2. Citizen 2100 How to zero subdials? Help.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried running the chrono function and resetting, alas no luck. Taking it to my local repairer today, I thought adjusting the hand manually would probably be the answer. I've had watches that you can pull out the crown and by pressing buttons which adjust the hand around to wherever you wanted, but alas this watch doesn't appear to be one of those.
  3. Does anyone know how to reset the chrono sub dials on the Citizen Promaster 2100 watches? I have a problem with the minute dial. Ive tried a full reset and that didn't sort it. I'm on to the the random button pressing phase now and I'm getting nowhere. Can it be done?
  4. Grrrr. More Ebay Woes

    Quick update on this one. The case was closed today and the good news is eBay closed it in my favour, so I don't have to refund this guy. Phew. It got to a point where he accused me of not supplying any service card or receipt, which I did. But I checked with Tag to see if they even needed the service card should the watch be sent back and they said no, as the watch serial number would be logged along with its service history. So the guy didn't have a leg to stand on. Good result all round
  5. Grrrr. More Ebay Woes

    Don't have the receipt, but I supplied the card that Tag gave with all the service details on it.
  6. Grrrr. More Ebay Woes

    I may do that as well, as this guy is taking the proverbial.
  7. Grrrr. More Ebay Woes

    Ok, my reply was: "Hello, During the Tag Heuer service they replace all waterproofing seals & the watch is pressure tested, it also had a brand new screw in crown fitted, so I find it odd that the watch can have water ingress from just swimming. Was the watch fogging up during the month prior to your holiday? As the watch is still well within the service guarantee period, I would suggest that the watch should be returned to Tag Heuer for assessment and they will be able to find where the fault lies. As stated previously, the watch was working perfectly prior to dispatch and I personally cannot be held responsible for any potential fault with the Tag Heuer service or user error. Regards Chris " How does that sound?
  8. Grrrr. More Ebay Woes

    No, not a peep. All I heard at first was the business with the strap length & glass scratches (which was just rubbish).
  9. I sold a Tag F1 on eBay in July. It was sold with a new Tag service and it was pretty mint. Almost straight away the buyer complained saying there were marks on the glass and the bracelet wasn't the length I stated in the ad. I pointed out that the watch has a triple buckle which is why it may look short and it needs to be opened fully, I also asked for pictures showing the scratched glass. I heard nothing after that. A month or so later I now get case opened against me saying that after swimming with the watch on the glass has fogged up ans now the chrono functions don't work. I'm not quite sure what to respond here as it seems the me the guy didn't want the watch in the first place and is looking for any reason he can to get a refund. Should I just respond with "you have had the watch for a month and a half, I don't know what you have done to it in that time. I suggest you return it to Tag Heuer as the service is guaranteed for a year". I'm reluctant to refund the guy as who knows what I'm going to get back in the post?
  10. Have been looking at the usual suspects (Seiko, Citizen etc) but I couldn't really find anything that looked like this Timex, plus I really like the shape of the crown. Granted, it's only a small detail, but it's the small things that matter :D
  11. Well, it's around a ton on Amazon, but around £140 on the High Street. I was tempted by a Torgoen T22, but this Timex looks quite similar (minus the bells & whistles) and a third of the price.......plus I can't really find out that much on the quality of Torgoen's either
  12. Does anyone know if the build quality of Timex watches has improved in the last 20 years or so? I'm tempted with the Timex Intelligent quartz range, but the last time a bought a Timex was back in the 80's, I think it was one of the Expedition watches, but the build quality was terrible, the worst thing was the bezel which would just pop off in a stiff breeze. I know that you get what you pay for, but I've owned some cheaper watches in the past and they never fell apart like the Timex did. Worth a punt for a ton?
  13. Fortis Phantoms Phorever

    It could be worse, it could be as cluttered as the newer Citizen Navihawk's, it's a shame as it's quite a nice looking watch, but there is way too much going on there.
  14. Apart from the price, ouch, just shy of £2000 What a great looking watch, and it's in honour of my favorite fighter, the F-4 Phantom, it even has the Phantom Spook on the dial, fantastic.
