  2. Helvetia (and Helbros) German DH Site Update

    I did Carl, very interesting. Iíll take a closer look at the serial this evening. I donít think mine is the Type 3, not sure what it is really. Mine has definitely had the dial painted, although...

    Thanks Carl, Iím looking forward to reading and enjoying this over the weekend.

    Iím off the check the serial number of my Finlay Strauss marked watch, with a very strange dial.

    My Tissot with the same movement was the first decent watch I bought for myself. I had started travelling with work a lot and the hour hand setting really sold it to me. I actually bought it at...

    Black Jacks were my favourite. 8 for 1d which was my weekly sweet money in the late 1960s.

    Very nice WG, looks great. I reset the chrono hands 3 or 4 times I think, trying to get them right. You did pretty well first time out!

    Fingers crossed it runs for a long time for you. I...

    Iím pretty sure the effect would be very weak compared to the already fairly low beta radiation. I think you might get a tiny flicker of X-rays.

    I can generally forgive teens pratting about, on the basis that in the late 70s I was just as much of a prat in public from time to time. As long as they are harmless.

    Here you go, it was on the Cousins website. More of a parts diagram/list, but it does have some information on the order in which to assemble/disassemble parts. Page 5 seems to confirm that the date...
