    I think they always had a plan, it just didn`t work. There was a point where the company seemed to be recovering and the share price recovered somewhat (around 2012 I think) but the recovery wasn`t...

    If the watches arenít being worn they wonít need attention on anything like the same timeframe as daily wearers, thatís my opinion.

    My 2004 Omega Speedy reduced is a good example, Iíve owned it...

    The problems arise when things like the mainplate or barrel bridge need replacing. I doní know what Rolex charge for these parts, but when a movement becomes obsolete the stocks of these major parts...

    Iíve never been a fan of GMT watches, but this one definitely represents Omegas second golden era from around 1996 to 2010. That was the period when the quality was significantly better, tge watches...

    Thatíll highlight problems with how itís running, but it wonít tell you that the auto-winding parts and keyless work are as dry as a witches fanny. Given the age and value of the watch Iíd treat it...

    Rule 1 is to always buy used watches at fair prices. Like cars, buying new equates to a big initial loss.

    Rule 2 is to always buy the best quality examples, they'll sell easily if you decide not...

    How do you define 'well looked after'? A watch can be in good cosmetic condition because the owner's been careful with it, but he may have worn it extensively for several years and the movement's...

    I`m not familiar with the Rolex 3135, but I`m sure there's a post on the mainplate that can wear if the lubrication isn`t maintained. That's the sort of problem that will cost money to fix in future...

    I think the chronometer versions had a better poised balance, and were adjusted more carefully to get within chronometer spec.

    Much as I like these movements I think the later 1010 series perform...

    Constellation Timekeeping

    Those who have been paying attention will recall my post last week, featuring the service and sorting of the 1972 Omega Constellation I recently acquired.

    Surprised to see Warrington lose, I thought they would’ve pulled out a big performance last night in the same way they did at Wembley.

    Nice result, it looks a whole lot better.

    The best way to do the bracelet is to remove all the scratches and marks using fine wet and dry paper prior to polishing, I never use polishing alone to...

    For a watch of that age Iíd definitely talk to a Rolex accredited indy such as Rocco at Watchworx (Bristol area) or Willian Rice (East Yorks). There are others, such as Duncan Potter (Genesis)....

    It would be a more sensible choice in some respects. If I wanted a Day-Date I`d look to spend a minimum of £11-£12K and find something as new as possible. Unlike other watches it's (almost) all about...
