  1. Skeleton Watches

    I used to like them many years ago but only as I found them intriguing but now, I've yet to see one that really thought wow, that includes some of the part skeleton watches. I find that whatever of the inards you can see through the face just ruins the dial for me.
  2. Seiko Padi Turtle

    I actually like both but I just can't personally get over the turtle case, puts me off for some reason, maybe I need to see one in the flesh?
  3. SKX power reserve 20 hours!

    The hairspring could be tangled, a well reported issue with this movement, a short but firm tap of the watch into your palm normally sorts this out. As the SKX doesn't have a display back you can't see or confirm if the hairspring is tangled but the a firm tap shouldn't do it any harm.

    Ah Ok, thanks for the reply.
  5. For the last week or so I've been unable to access the forum using Tapatalk, complains that it can't logon. Is this as a result of a recent change?
  6. Why are Tissot so Faked

    Until this thread I didn't even know that Tissot watches were faked, interesting read all round.
  7. Orient Ray II - taking stem off

    I'd give the round hole directly below the stem and above the screw a try, no idea about the this movement but for Seiko 7S26 the stem has to be pushed in but unscrewed before it can be taken out.
  8. Which one would you buy <£200

    How is the 009 for ladies?
  9. Help with SKX Modding

    Sorry can't help with proper advice but I'd avoid Timpsons, they can hardly resole/reheel a shoe never mind work on a watch.
  10. Seiko Service Centre UK

    Quite a few people have mentioned a "miserable women" wonder if it's the same person and if it is should she really be the face that greets the public?
  11. Seiko Service Centre UK

    I sent my daughters solar watch to them as it wasn't charging and all they did was charge it under a high power lamp and send it back,still has the issue that in everyday use it stops so they didn't look at or resolve the actual issue. My daughter as a result has gone off the Seiko brand and has since purchased a few watches, none of them Seiko.
  12. Orient Star Classic

    Love the black, red and white. Wonder if the bracelet would fit on a SARB033/035?
  13. SKX MOD'S

    Managed to locate the thread that I purchased my watch from and it states "Murphy bezel and dagaz vintage bezel insert fitted".
  14. SKX MOD'S

    No sorry I don't, I purchased the watch with it and the insert already fitted.
  15. SKX MOD'S

    For me changing the bezel for a coin edge version just completes the watch.
