    1979

    Rolex or Omega at that budget for me. Lots of brands were struggling in 1979, so quality went south except for a few brands. AP and VC dress watches would also be a consideration, but you will need some documentation to date them accurately (Vacheron Constantin charge £150 for an extract from the archives) I'd either choose a Datejust that you can wear everyday, for every occasion, or an 18k president on leather. Research all thoroughly as the Rolex waters are very muddy. I currently have nothing near this price budget for this year. I'd better get buying!

    And this one. It came from a horology shop in Dorchester. Cost me a whole ten pounds! It's actually a presentation clock to an ex BR worker, so I like that it has a 'history' Enfield clock by

    Im not to keen on the logo myself, i don't know if it affects the value of the watch in a good or bad way

    Stylistically these two are poles apart, they both perch on a couple of my bookcases. The small deco bakelite Smiths 'Sectric' dates from the late 1930s. The original 'Sectric' mains movement was wrecked so this now has a more convenient quartz one! The larger Smiths 'Sectronic' is from the late 1960s to very early 1970s (later versions of this clock don't have the 'Sectronic' marking as they were quartz, the battery Sectronic movements having proved somewhat troublesome so I've read) Unfortunately the original movement in this had badly corroded due to a leaking battery so this now too has a quartz movement.

    I spied a nice AirKing on chrono24 with a 'pool intairdril' logo on it. Now... I think it looks kinda cool but does it detract away from what the watch is all about, or does it compliment it?

    This one for me today..I love it! As it goes, it also came with the bracelet...Id never put the bracelet on, as the strap is sooo! comfy! Anyways, when I went to put the strap on...it was quite dirty...long story short..a while back I got a cheap ultrasonic cleaner from Lidls.......I didnt have any "proper ultrasonic cleaner!"..so I used Fairy Liquid and water...they are good little things! Gets lots of muck off! (I still kept it on the leather though!) Old pic as well......sorry!

    I think I'd be looking for a speed master. I think a good example from the 70's with the right level of visible ageing is just about as perfect as a watch gets. Alternatively a Rolex submariner as per your previous post is a really good shout.

    are there any markings or assay stamps on the case back ?
