  9. Hi Simon I have a Victorinox Swiss Army Watch model 24150 which is a gift from my dad. The crown broke at the end of stem whilst I was pulling it out to adjust the date (later discovered there was some rust here) I went to the watchlab to ask for a quote to fix this and the guy (wearing a white coat) straight away said it will cost more than £200 and the watch needs to be sent away 4-8 weeks, adding that this is an initial quote and might go higher (all this even without looking at the watch) .... I felt that this is a bit of a rip off & looked into doing this somewhere else. I am newbie to watch repairs and don't claim to have any knowledge of what I am doing but replacing the stem seemed as an easy task after watching few youtube videos. I had a go at it & removed the stem, got a matching new stem & new crown but the new stem is not staying in and not engaging or not turning the date wheel ... I am assuming it's the locking mechanism pushed down too far when I removed the stem (I used a pin). Proceeding further is out of my comfort zone to be honest. I need help fixing this Any advice on what to do? Any recommendations on a good watch repair in London? (I live in new malden) Any help is appreciated
  10. Unknown Hermes Model

    Hi All, I very recently came across an image of a beautiful Hermes watch face, and i'm desperate to find out a little more about it. The numbers appear to be hand painted. Would any of you more knowledgeable watch fans happen to have stumbled across anything of this sort? Any information would be much appreciated!! Thanks, Jack

  13. Anyone here wear a Hamilton Electric as your everyday, daily wear watch? Shut it down at night to preserve the contacts, of course, but otherwise 12 hours a day, day in and day out, just like it was originally intended when new 50+ years ago? If it had been restored by Jared, Paul, Rene, or Dan, with contacts changed, then regularly cleaned and lubed every couple of years, would it last like a regular manual or automatic wind watch? Just wondering. Would love to hear from the BIG FOUR Master Restorers on this question, or anyone else familiar with Hamilton Electrics...specifically the 505 movement. Rene has a famous story in his book about one of the inventors of the Hamilton Electric modifying and improving the Hamilton Electric...I think he added a diode or something to keep the contacts cleaner than normal, plus some other changes. His modifications were never adopted, but to prove a point, he keep that watch on his desk, ran it continuously(only changing batteries) for years and years, until he passed away. Of course, that was a very special modified one, but how about a standard 505?
  14. Debate: Is the accuracy of a chronograph function the same as the watch it self?

  18. No, not the modern A&F. Back in the day, Abercrombie & Fitch were premier outdoor/safari clothing outfitters, and had a star studded list of clientele. And they sold watches that Heuer made especially for them. Read on... http://www.christies.com/features/Vintage-Heuer-for-Abercrombie-and-Fitch-watches-8375-1.aspx

  22. Heuer 1000 Professional 1985

    Good afternoon All, With children and work I have somewhat neglected TWF for my sins, some of you may recall I craved a Heuer 1000 for some time, I love my Tag Heuer 1000 and a few years ago purchased its older slightly battered older brother, both of which have served me well since. I thought the Heuer was running out of battery so took it to get a new one fitted (there is a good shop right outside my work) but when I got there it was ticking again, now it seems that it will tick and keep perfect time when it is being jiggled about on my wrist but seems to get stuck/stop when its off my wrist, the man in the shop helpfully told me its old you won't get parts and its time to be binned! I obviously don't want to do this, can this watch be repaired? I am more familiar with mechanicals than I am quartz watches. I mean ticking versions of this watch still go for £600 on ebay so not likely to chuck away anytime soon! Any advice gladly received Cheers Yogi

  24. montblanc or what?

    Hello all, My wife was given this watch. It is 27mm dia and says swiss made at 6 0clock position. The face seems to say montblanc in italics, but the watch looks 40's and montblanc didn't make watches then did they? On the back case is stamped 2979. Inside are some scratched numbers: jewellers marks? and it says fond acier inoxydable. The mechanism says fifteen jewels. Does anyone know anything about it or how old it is? Thanks in advance for any help. sorry wont upload photo but it is here
