why what happens when you reach 1000 post marc
When Marrick posted his 'collection thread'.... I foolishly suggested that I would do the same when I got to 1000 posts.... Trim said he would do the same at 2000.... just need someone to do the same at 3000 (I note you are at 2761)....why what happens when you reach 1000 post marc
Join the club... My collection is small and pathetic... with a few quartz chucked in... but wheels have been set in motion... 1000... and a 'collection thread' will appear. The way I look at it, in 3 (10? 20?)years time, I will still be updating that thread... it will be a 'live' record of my collection! So, I can look back and see how my collection develops with age... see what 'fads' I go through (military at the mo)... etc.my collection is only small and 3 of those are quartz watches, look forward to your collection, so thats you on 993 need a few more questions to ask you lol
Cheers radger,Very very nice, a vintage Tudor for thirty quid is excellent and this could turn out to be the bargain
of the month. Lots like these are the best as someone clears out a drawer, describes mechanical watches
as not working and nine times out of ten all they need is a service and are often in very good condition
as they've lain unloved for years.
Job lots from watchmakers estates, on the other hand, are usually junkers.
Nice one, and I'm also looking forward to your thousandth post.
I have no idea!!! I thought it was really difficult!How JLSmout picked that one out is beyond me....good eye.
Yeh, that's a nice early Tudor Oyster that you reference, this watch has a cappedIt would be nice to see something like:
Gents Very Early Military Type Rolex Tudor Oyster Watch stunning | eBay
I can dream....
Heh, actually not so much the plus. I really think it is between 29mm and 30mm. It is just scraping 30mm, and I think it probably would just be called a 30 mm watch. If you come back with 32mm I won't believe it o|.Interesting.... Only time will tell!!
That Tudor has cleaned up nicely. I like that retro Seiko. Congratulations on a really good find.Well,
Here are the first 2... Seiko and Tudor!
The Tudor.... even though in a bit of a state... I think was worth the £30 on its own... I would have paid that much!!
As the crystal is missing... The dial was very dirty!! See the pic, where I had just wiped it with a ear bud and warm water...
The caseback that holds the movement is a weighty 'Denisteel' back, that is signed as follows:
The Signed Tudor Movement is a 1260 ETA (I think!) as its signed under the balance 1260 See Rolands as a comparison:
bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: ETA 1260
As you can see the movement is nice and clean... but is 15J and has no shock protection - Compared to the one on Rolands site... Im guessing mine is an earlier version??
The top section of the case is chrome plated and a bit worn... but on the whole... cant complain!!
The shock in all this, is the second Seiko (not the Bellmatic).... Its a cracker... and worth the £30 on its own - easily!! It was very very dirty and scratches... but has come up ok - if I do say so myself! ;-)
Take note of the crytal - A rare feature and I have not seen it before on a Seiko (Have searched since and see it was standard on this watch)
The movement is very clean and running well... all the quick set features work... what a result!
I will look to get a replacement crystal for the Bell-Matic and give it a clean! Then post that also... But what do you think... good buy??
