  1. First post - 70s sports Rotary

    The crystal looks like acrylic, If so it can be brought back as new simply using an abrasive metal polish like Brasso or Solvol Autosol, If there's deep scores then a fine-ish wet and dry abrasive paper first until all the deepest scratches are gone then the metal polish, You'll be amazed at the difference it will make John

  3. New addition - SEIKO 6139-6011

    I swapped my Seiko World Timer for the Bulova Precisionist! I bought the World Timer from an ANtiques centre some years ago, I then (I think) Swapped something for a Navigator case that had been refurbed, The case back had been polished way too much so I put the original caseback on to the refurb'd case (y), I preferred the inner bezel with the hours on rather than the capital cities so I left it in place! The orginal case/bezel I was supposed to be sending the old case in case the gent wanted to put the original inner bezel back in but couldn't find it , When it turns up i'll send it to him along with the staff and gear that drives the inner bezel too EDIT- Ooops!!, I really need new specs, I thought the OP's watch was a world timer when I just looked at it again!!

  4. I can recall (Vaguely) A lady in the US Bought a motorhome type vehicle, Just a few miles down the road it careered off the road and collided with something or other, When the Police asked her what happened she replied, 'I don't know, As the vehicle was automatic, I went to make a cup of coffee and left it to drive itself, It crashed soon after'!!
