  1. Yep, nothing wrong with Seagull at all, although I would shy away from getting a proper mechanical moon phase unless you can quick set the moon phase section, otherwise you end up having to wind the crown potentionally through a whole month to get to the last full moon and then you can wind on to the correct date and moon phase. That's why I opted for a Quartz (I my case a Certina DS-8)...
  2. I've been talking about the a b art KLD watch ?? How about this Swiss Certina Moon phase for £380? https://www.francisandgaye.co.uk/certina-mens-ds-8-moonphase-brown-leather-watch-C0334571603100-p23623/s28137?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=certina-men-apos-s-ds-8-moonphase-brown-leather-watch-c033-457-16-031-00&utm_campaign=product%2Blisting%2Bads&gclid=CjwKCAjw9e3YBRBcEiwAzjCJuqk9Mc8TwNxcwS-RMB2Ujz0LHwA1lsUnkLBaZFv9ImvxvqJO2mpnBBoCkDUQAvD_BwE
  3. It looks to me that a black disc slowly covers a full moon over a period of a month to give the various phases. I could be wrong as they don't give many details or other screen shots.
  4. That's a nice watch but way too small in diameter for me I'm afraid

    Vinyl revival?

    It's certainly a lot more interesting (ie album covers, lyrics, coloured vinyls etc) but certainly not better audio quality than digital

    Vinyl revival?

    I think anyone who "claims the analogue quality is better than the digital format are talking out of their derrieres !!. Nowadays most musical instruments have pure digital outputs, but the voice still needs a microphone (which of course is analogue). Vinyls, pick up dust, have inherent imperfections and WILL degrade each time they are played. Mind you there are plenty of "digital snobs" seeing all those adverts for high sample rate DAC's (Digital to Analogue Converters) ??? But this is for another thread...

    DIY LED clock kit

    It's not as bad as it seems to be honest, a couple of boards with a fair number of R's and C's. The IC's have sockets just in case as do the Nickie tubes. A bit of cutting and stripping is required to modify the supplied USB mains PSU (but at least one is supplied) - it would be interesting to add the GPS module (Skylab SKM 53 ~ £17 from China).
  8. One good reason I tend to only wait for the sell for only a £1 offers (there's one on now as it happens). I then put a whole load of stuff on there knowing, I only pay the 3% to PP and not the extra 10% to eBay :(. At least if you lumbered with a partial refund you don't feel too short changed
  9. Yes it could well be a translation issue, it doesn't make any sense to me and I've owned a Fortis very similar to that one. I wonder if he could provide a video. Of course, he might by trying the old trick trick of seeing if you will offer him a small refund to go away??. I had one when I sold my Orient on EBay. I described my watch as Mint, the seller described it as excellent, near mint with a tiny scratch ( that I could have easily have polished out, if I had noticed it). The tale-tale part was when he said, he was thinking about sending it back...cue waiting for my offer. He tried to drop me a lot my showing me Creationwatches price ( I had to correct him that he had to factor VAT etc) but in the end I gave him back £50. In the end it's not worth the hassle A small point, but I assume you tested out all the functions were working OK before posting???
  10. A lot also depends on what was said on the auction - are you willing to share the auction number ?? It might help. If not then, you'll have to probably have to refund otherwise the buyer might raise a item not as described dispute

    DIY LED clock kit

    Indeed, apparently this one is powered by a USB charger, so plenty of those things around the house. At least CR1220 should be available in Tesco/B&Q etc..

    Well I ordered one of these... I hope it's OK, Building electronics is easy peasy for me (seams to be the only gripes looking through the reviews).. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0190420PY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Oh yes a nice Nixie tube clock, does anyone recommend any particular UK kit supplier I wonder?? Do they do make a very faint click/tick when they change number??
