    • I've not found any reference yet to "sunbeam" I'm afraid.  The movement looks like this A.Schild 554 calibre as per this link.. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&2&2uswk&AS_554 I also came across this article which shows the movement being serviced which may be of interest.  https://thewatchbloke.co.uk/2015/01/09/a-schild-554/ I will keep a lookout and let you know if I find any information relating to the "Sunbeam" .   
    • The forum gallery for £5 is worth every penny and very easy. Ireland's finest linen today. Oh, and a watch.
    • Because I am so damn lovely, I decided to treat myself to a new watch. I had noticed some of you have Invicta submariner watches, and I quite liked the look of them, especially as I don't own a submariner myself. I did some research and decided on an automatic 8927 OB with a Seiko movement. The reviews are very good, and I think it looks stunning. Just the watch for my holidays I think. I looked around and by far the best price was Amazon, coming in at £71. However I noticed a seller on ebay was selling a new one with a starting price of £49. I suspected the watch would end up selling for between £60 and £65, so I decided to wait the 3 days and bid. Guess what, it sold for £70. Why the hell did I bother waiting, as I could have had the bloody watch by now. So many times I have witnessed people bidding unnecessarily high and early, when they could have just bought the item on a "buy it now" basis for no more. This is the watch
