    I’ve taken a side-by-side shot of a 34mm Omega DeVille next to the Conquest, but Flickr seems to be down so I can post it right now. I’ll edit and add it when it starts working again. I think a big...

    Yeap it’s 35mm. My wrists are pretty skinny, but quite flat which helps. I think they’re 6.75”.

    I’ve got the 18k version of the conquest. A beautiful watch for sure, but they’re a bit thick for my taste so it almost always loses out to my sixties gold UG. Not a great photo, sorry.

    I might have some older bits lying around, but this is definitely my oldest runner. From 1938 give or take a year, and quite possibly the earliest known yacht timing wristwatch.

    Seventies German goodness this morning from my local DDR flea market, plus an M3, F40, and Super Soaker to keep the kids happy.

    A question for anyone really... is it correct that the movement needs to come out to access the crystal, or is it just retained by the front bezel ?

    This seems as good a thread as any to post this. Just arrived this morning and hidden amongst a large parts lot. Came in at under £200 and it looks to be in pretty good condition and seems to run...

    Anyone that invests a reasonable amount of time and effort can pick an original up for less than the new price of one of these. It might not be museum grade, but you can get an all original watch in...

    Are the H&M hands correct on that one ? In that photo it’s hard to see if they’re chamfered or not.

    With a bit of effort and daily checks, you can find a good 6105 for £1k or less. You need to do your homework though.
