    Generally, a tension ring crystal is required to give water resistance, there are exceptions but for an acrylic crystal to have the resilience to seal it needs to be thick, not a design I favour but...

    Question for the heating experts

    A bit of advice regarding my central heating, please.

    I’ve had similar feelings to the OP but decided against selling any, I’ve resorted to wearing mine around the house in rotation.

    In most watches like this the movement parts are OK and very few parts are needed. Thereís always a risk that somethingís broken and needs replacing but if thatís the case it shouldn't be too hard to...

    In a streetlit built- up area the limit us 30 unless there are signs indicating otherwise, like it or lump it thatís the rule and cameras will enforce it without discretion. Itís not the 1980s any...

    Not quite as easy as you think. ETA supply us very patchy to say the least, not sure about Sellita but I suspect there are long lead times to get those too. Price would also hike considerably.

    Dial looks reasonably OK, might improve a little by cleaning but uf not its still OK. Hands will benefit from careful cleaning and reluming carefully. Movement will needfully servicing, the rotor can...

    I agree, its nice to see stuff like this survive. I had to get rid of furniture in 2006 when my dad died, couldnít find anyone who wanted it despite our best efforts so it got broken up, seemed so...

    Yes, thatís true for Seikos in my opinion. Ideally, the rate would be the same at 230 degrees as it is at 280, but it always changes to a greater or lesser extent for any watch. In my experience...

    Two points to consider, which are inter-related: your current age and your pension.

    The better watches are able to maintain isochronism over a wider range of amplitudes. They also have better precision due to the positional variations being smaller.

    Lets consider the Omega 1120...

    Acrylic crystals are easy to refinish, but Iíve had limited success with mineral glass and I usually replace them. Sapphire is even harder to polish, Iíve improved minor scratches using a Dremel soft...

    +1, thatís my advice too, although it pays to be sure youíll have enough income to support the lifestyle you expect to lead in retirement. It helps if you have relatively modest tastes, but many...

    No. Youíre completely missing the point, youíre trying to draw analogies with other mechanical items and it doesnít work that way.

    Any watch that isn`t serviced for many years will end up performing 'out of tolerance' as you term it. Amplitude will fall markedly and unless the watch is regulated to account for this (not...

    Iíll bet a pound to a penny that the PO is running with better precision than a 36 yr old Rolex! With careful regulation ( thatís the hard part) the PO would give excellent results, Iím not a fan of...

    So are 60s Omegas, Seikos, and stuff you’ve never heard of with AS movements.......when you work on watches it provides a totally different perspective.

    Iíím surprised Cousins donít have any O rings that can be fitted, they have a very big range. Finding the right size can be difficult, theyíre not easy to measure.

    That crossed my mind, usually watches donít suddenly start misbehaving in such a dramatic fashion unless theyíve had a hard whack or become magnetised.

    People are buying Timefactors watches with the sole intention of making a grubby few £££ profit by re- selling on ebay, thatís the truth of it, and some will be forum members.

    The term ĎMr Unshiftablesí made me laugh! I used to borrow 3/4 drive sets from work when faced with similar jobs on the MGBs I owned, mainly because I didnít have big enough sockets in my set.
