  1. I'd love to see the pictures, post the pictures on another watch forum site and let us know which watch forum it is, then we can see them.
  2. Help with Tavannes pocket / La Captive

    I think it's fabulous, very nice piece.
  3. Just a question, was the car boot sale in Bournemouth.
  4. Traser

    Yes, it is his watch. Well I've worn the watch now for a week, it doesn't mist up. It's been worn everyday, good and bad weather , inside and outside of my jacket. It's been heavy rain it's been warm some days, I have it on a nato strap, today I showered in it, the first time I've ever worn a watch in the SHOWER, the watch did not mist up , it did exactly what it was supposed to do, worked without fault. Someone said it might be the ar coating on the inside of the glass, I have not seen the misting, but it's possible that what has been seen is the anti reflective coating. So we will leave it at that, there is and is no fault with the watch, it is and has been the ar coating on the inside of the sapphire glass...

    I'm still not getting the fact that you said the watch mists up every time you went out . I've been wearing the watch all week , in the pouring rain, in the cold, sat above a radiator, I've worn it inside my coat, outside my coat, I've had its inside a fridge then worn the watch. I cannot get it to steam up, or mist up as you have said it does, it had moisture on the out side of the watch after it came out of the fridge, but there was no evidence at all that the watch misted up on the inside. So I really don't know what the man has been doing to make the watch mist up.. I think I've done all I can to prove that the watch is fit for purpose. So before every one makes there mind up on one persons experience a watch, take someone's else experience of wearing exactly the same watch. Which has performed exactly as it is expected to.

    It's use has been mandated in the procurement specification MIL-W-46374F. Over 3000.000 watches in the US army were illuminated by traser. Does this still count a a small boutique brand.
  7. Teeeny Omega

    Gosh, it's an old one..
  8. Traser

    I'm a bit confused, you say it mists up every time you go out, but it's just the same picture, so is it every time you go out or not.
  9. Traser

    Well I had a look for Traser watch problems, and it kept referring to some company selling the watches ,who was having problems, and some one one else from Australia. All depends on what you do with a watch when your wearing it, a lot of people where them in the shower, which I've never understood.
  10. Russian watch , crown problem

    Well I sorted it out now, removed the stem, fitted a small spring within the pendant tube and ta da, no more wobbly crown.
  11. I have just got one of these waterproof russian watches, it has a bezel on it a anchor on the dial. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement screw down Crown, as the one that is on the watch the spring has gone on it, and it just flops around when its unscrewed. Thanks.
  12. Aluminium Case

    Well , so many makers used aluminium, longines , omega , smiths , to name but a few. I've a couple of smiths some where, still going strong.
  13. You Buggers !!

    What photo.
  14. Longines TLC

    Yes a nice result, as Simon says if a jobs worth doing its worth doing well. When I service and repair any of the watches I get in,I strip it all down and check and oil every thing, some times it takes a bit longer , but ha ho. I have a nice old Longines some where that I've had for many years, a bit older that the one pictured above, it's a stainless steel, blued steel hands, Pre shockproof.
  15. Ingersoll Triumph

    Well if your numbers are correct, it's an early one around 1893. I've a few of the old ones myself, nothing quite that old, but there good fun to use, once you've have it service should make quite a talking point.
