  3. Help dating an Eterna .....

    doubt it even if you cut a hole in the dial and stuck a date wheel in there wouldn't be owt in the movement to date it.
  4. Hi new member

    welcome you'll need a Seiko a Christopher Ward and a Steinhart or they will take the mickey out of you on here. Or is that the other way round?
  5. Help dating an Eterna .....

    Each to his or her own and everything - I do love my watches but prefer to date a lovely lady
  6. I know I've had one of your old Omegas!

    True but I think the yellow dialled version is generally accepted , I do have a couple as you can see the 70m waterproof one wasn't as waterproof as a previous owner thought Not the best of pics i'm afraid and my other later version This guy on Ebay has loads of Seiko parts , so worth an ask https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/schillachi61
  8. How good are CW watches?

    they could do a special edition like seiko do the ones with the compass and people still get lost up mountains we could have biblical guidance with a special edition cw/

    I believe the purists would say that the one I have shared is not a 'true Pogue' as it doesn't have 'Water 70m resistant' by the nine o'clock on the dial. Its a later 1975 model but its close enough for me!
  14. Bizzare IWC chrono fault

    :ummm9uh: Okay. Good luck with that.
  15. Wow, so cheap they couldn’t fit a PVD crown to the case. I think this post is in the wrong section, surely it was meant to be in the Jokes section...?
  16. Hi new member

    Hello guys, thanks for having me in this community, i’m a watch collector since 10 years, I own 25 watches between rolex ap Patek Philippe and Richard mille. I’d love to share some pics and experiences about the watches I have or I had. Have a good day guys.
  17. Has someone got a rope I can borrow?
  18. How good are CW watches?

    I am in the haters camp. I can handle them stealing design from other brands (most ideas are based on those that come before) but the constant sales I am less tolerant. I was always taught you only need to have sales if you are selling crap...it seems they aren't exactly crap but I think they hurt their brand with the marketing bull, the lack of heritage is also irksome for me. I accept that everyone must start somewhere but I would go for tried and tested brands I have had a relationship before the new kids on the block. They have their place but not on my recommended list nor very inspiring to me, I just feel no affection to them but am not irritated by them on the level of Squale or Steinhart.
  19. Vintage Omega ID please

    Take it to a local watchmaker/jeweler, ask them to open it and let you take macro photos with a good quality camera.

  21. @Nigelp ..... to be honest I think your tastes are deteriorating ......... and they weren't very good to start with ! ...

    The trouble is unfortunately spares for these are becoming harder and harder to find ,almost impossible , hence the increase in there cost imo. Even the after market parts seem to be becoming scarcer , so it might pay to get as good an original example as you can (easier said than done I know). The one you have shown looks right enough but original crystals are obsolete and the aftermarket ones don't look right , the edges are to rounded. The yellow dialled model is the real Pogue (as in the model worn by Colonel W Pogue during his time at the spacelab ), the other variants are trading on the name to increase profits
  24. According to those instructions it's aparently also recyclable
  25. Help with Seiko Alpinist 6R15

    I'd second what @Chromejob says. You could see if you've got a jeweller local to you who can put the watch on a timegrapher as this might flag up any obvious issues. It's worth bearing in mind that while many folk's Seiko's will be more accurate than Seiko's quoted figures at 26s/d yours is only just outside their quoted tolerance.. Taken from the Seiko 6R15 user manual... 3 Loss/gain (daily rate)............................................ +25 – 15 seconds at normal temperature range (between 5°C and 35°C) 4 Continuous operating time ................................. More than approx. 50 hours 5 Driving system..................................................... Automatic winding type with manual winding mechanism 6 Jewels................................................................. 23 jewels * The accuracy above is factory adjusted. ** Due to the characteristics of mechanical watches, any actual daily rate may not fall within the range of time accuracy specified above dependent on the conditions of use, such as the length of time during which the watch is worn on the wrist, temperature, arm movement, and whether the mainspring is wound up fully or not, etc.
  26. The Mk II Graywater was a 50 piece LE for the PMWF, or Poor Man’s Watch Forum. The forum was disbanded after a tragedy, and reborn as the Wallet Friendly Watch Forum, but the dials were already printed.
  27. Seiko Pogue

    One of our mods has one IIRC, if you browse recent threads you’re likely to find it (or use the SEARCH function). Buying from watch enthusiasts (tried WatchRecon?) you’re a little less likely to encounter scammers like on eBay.
