  1. Just launched my first SoHo watch collection- NEWTON Watches- Stylish, Affordable, Minimalist with premium components Under $79 http://kck.st/2u5o88i
  2. I have a mechanical gentleman's wristwatch which is Swiss made but is called a Zorro Sportmaster Calendar (spelt with an 'a' before the 'r' on the face and 'calender' on the back plate!) . Also on the face it states 17 Jewels, zorroflex, antimagnetic and waterking. The face is coupled Gold as is the casing but I cannot see anything mentioned as being other than base metal. On the reverse it states Super De Luxe Swiss watch, Zorro, Sport Master, Calender, 1093-35. Waterproof mainspring, stainless steel, unbreakable. The back plate has a ten sided shape for removal but I do not have a took to do this to see the movement. It winds and works well, if a little fast and I love the look of it but just want to know if anyone can provide more information? Thank you.
  3. Afternoon all, I've been saving up, and am looking to buy a Rolex. I've done quite a lot of research, visited quite a few stores and have finally found a piece that looks great. It's an Oysterdate Precision (1974), priced at £3,350. I was just wondering what people's thoughts were on it - good value? good model? Any thoughts much appreciated!

  5. Mr Wright

    Hi. New to the watch forum but have been a watch enthusiast for as long as I can remember. Looking to discuss all things luxury watch related with like minded watch lovers. I own a Breitling Superocean Steelfish (2014) and have recently purchased 2 of the limited edition Tag Muhammad Ali tribute Carrerra Ring Master. I want a watch with a brown leather strap next to complete the hat trick of Steel, Black and Brown straps. Open to some suggestions from other members on this subject. A more long term dream is to own a Jaeger Le Coultre dress watch.
  6. Hello The Watch Forum community! First off, I would like to thank the admins and The Watch Forum for granting me permission to share my project with this community. About us Inspired by the French lifestyle, Monsieur captures the essence of bold living with an eclectic taste for adventure. This project was birth from an idea that quality can come with a low price tag. As an avid watch collector and enthusiast, the key to owning a watch that could stand the test of time does not only rely on the materials used but also the craftsmanship of the timepiece. We are a small team of watch enthusiast who has a passion for timepieces that are simple and bold. Now available on Kickstarter: We have named the first series of watches ALLIAGE. The ALLIAGE SERIES is inspired by the distinct alloy materials that birth the GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE case that we offer. Dimensions and specifications are as follows: Dome Sapphire Crystal 316L stainless steel case 5ATM water resistant Swiss Ronda movement 753 Lugless: 22mm Thickness: 10mm Diameter: 40mm Please feel free to ask any questions about the watch.
  7. Greetings to all at the Watch Forum! Thank you for giving us, elegantsis, a watch brand from Taiwan with 20 years of experience in manufacturing, the chance to share our latest creation. JSK Series: Mechanical Watch with The Custom Motorcycle Soul The JX65AS-JSK Series, is two mechanical watch collections inspired by custom motorcycles. In joining forces with the custom motorcycle design company, JSK Moto, we bring together the common values of craftsmanship, strength and style, while drawing inspiration from their signature and classic works. Drawing inspiration from JSK Moto’s newest creations: Cobalt Storm and Rhodium Omega and its signature works: Chocolate Slider and Ivory Comet, resemblance to the components on the customised motorcycles can be found throughout the watch design, from the rotor, brake disc and the suspension system on the dial surface; to the throttle and the fuel cap on the metallic crown. Features: AR Coated Sapphire Crystal Glass Sellita SW200-1 Swiss Automatic Movement Super Luminova 47.5 mm Stainless Steel Case Waterproof to 100 m Italian Vegetable Tanned Calfskin Special Edition Hard Case Packaging We believe we are not alone in the obsession for motorcycles and watches; the passion in speed and precision, and have chosen to launch on Kickstarter to build a community for like-minded souls. This is also why we are reaching out to the watch enthusiasts here and we'd be happy to receive any kind of feedback! Thanks again for your time and we invite you to visit our Kickstarter campaign for more details
  8. I bought a Ball Hydrocarbon Silverfox 4 months ago. The protection system for the crown has broken twice now with no real force. After fixing it once it happened again. The bit of metal that holds the protecter is thin and for me not fit for purpose. Its meant to be a rugged divers watch. Anyone else had this problem?

  12. My dad gave me an 18k Gold, Dual Zone, Desta Swiss Watch that has been passed through the family for a few generations now. It has a beautiful solid gold band and a partial map of the world surrounding the two clocks. The back of the watch says "Tresta Swiss" along with "Fond Acier Inoxydable 584." Not sure what it might be worth or what date it is. I assume it is most likely from the 60's but I'm not sure the exact date or the pricing. If anyone has any prior knowledge of the watch, it would be appreciated. Not sure how to add pictures on here, so if anyone wants them, I can send them via email.

  14. Week started with three arrivals from amazon prime day. A Braun, tidal Timex and a Samsung gear 3 smart watch. All swiftly returned from whence they came. Then bought the grovana below. Cheeky bid accepted. Wrist shot now the query. What are the numbers across the moonphase? I assume they are something to do with that, but am baffled why they go to 29 1/2

  18. Hi all, I am fairly new to this forum and am looking for some advice or ideas on the identity of my friend's Rotary 18ct Gold Manual wound 21 Jewel Incabloc watch. He inherited it from his grandfather earlier this year. He estimated it was bought for his Grandfather between the late 1950's and early 1960s, although not certain on this. He hasn't opened it up as he is nervous to do so, neither of us, though interested are experienced with watches. It was serviced just before he aquired it and valued at approximatley £1800, if this helps. He also knows that, at the time his grandfather bought it, it was a limited edition.The gold could be solid or plated but as far as I have been told, it is at least a solid case. Here are a few pics.

Cheers Charlie

  20. Mathey Tissot help

    I have had this watch sitting in a box for years. For some reason I pulled it out yesterday to examine it. It is not currently running. Can anyone tell me a few things about it? 1. Is it worth anything/repairing? 2. Model information? Thanks. https://www.dropbox.com/s/aws19ykw73ufq64/image1.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/s7k6trtrwvvjoz8/image2.JPG?dl=0
  21. Good Morning to You, I'm a 35yo guy from Hungary. I have a Marvin-marked old watch since late 90's. I got it from my grandfather, but I have no information of the origin. He fought in WW2, and spent some time in Germany and more than 3 years in Russia after. So, this is my watch. It is a bit scrached, also the plexi and the case. The back side of the case is like bronze - it is a very massive watch. If I had to make watches for miners or smiths, they would be so like this. It has a self-winding mechanism. What do you think? When and where it could be made? Thank you for your opinion.
  22. Hello There, I received this watch as a gift a few years ago, from someone who collected watches as a hobby. I myself haven't worn the watch although i appreciate it's very lovely! I was looking for further information about it, i am lead to believe it is 1960's? The person who i received it from i remember saying it was a nurses watch? Could anyone help to let me know when it dates to and if it has any value at all? I've attached a few photos and would appreciate anyone's help on this! Many thanks, Christy https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8IiWL_5Y1M-OUpDOUxPX1AxV1E
