  1. when i was young and daft and used to fly about on my T120 bonneville the vibration at over 6000 RPM induced blurred vision and i used to have to loctite the screws in my glasses ,remember the tingling hands well..,still got the bike,have owned it for 40 years, now its a shed queen.i am too old to ride it...
  2. this one is 40mm,just right for me but there is a bigger model..
  3. oris now,
  4. sub c this morning....

  8. fresh in from the forum revue thommen..
  9. i do wear a watch at night,SMP with sword hands is my favorite for its lume..
  10. sub c this morning...............
  11. there are some lovely gold vintage watches inside that budget but they are a little small for some tastes but if you find one which is all dial and little bezel they do wear larger..this MuDu is only 34mm but i am quite content to wear it on my 8"wrist....
  12. i have found a cigarette lighter quite good for this,enough localised heat to soften the loctite but not enough to discolour the metal.sorry..just reread your post i woundnt not apply any direct heat near the movement,but if you heat up a metal rod the same size as the pin and hold it against the threaded end of the offending pins this might do the job.....
  13. i like it,if you really like it ,go for it.
  14. starting the day with an oris [old pic]...
  15. super buy well done.hope you get much pleasure from it,that box looks great but i carried one around a spanish port all morning in a carrier bag[the watch was on my wrist] and it was a a pain in the bum.but wearing the speedy i was on cloud nine so didnt moan..
