    How about the Omega Great White?

    I have several GMT’s, as I travel all the time, but the Great White is somehow always top of the pile.

    If it is from one of the big three - Swarovski, Schmidt & Bender or Zeiss - send it back to them.

    Very nice!

    There is something pleasantly tactile about old binoculars, as well as the intriguing consideration of everything that might have been looked at through them.

    It is indeed a stunning looking car.

    But does anyone know the particular reason why, given that the car is a DB4, in the film they feel the need at 4:07 to refer to "The DB5 as favoured by James...

    Many thanks - that looks just the job!

    I'll have to see if I can find one somewhere, or at least a reference to the official part number.

    Edit: Looks like it's the same as the 620 movement ring...

    Yes, that's what I had also assumed, but the fact that the movement is not snug within the cut-out of the case back made me question it.
  11. Omega 511.0504 - should there be a movement holder?

    Often when perusing eBay I'll keep an eye out for ladies Omegas, as my wife likes an occasional change from her Rolex DJ and she already has a stainless steel Omega with a 620 movement that Brendan...

    Not hijacked at all - that’s a lovely watch and, naturellement, a Helvetia.

    Thank you also for the link to the thread on the Wray binoculars. I have not been visiting the site so much recently,...

    From what I’ve read the only difference seems to be that the 7548 benefits from one more jewel and a battery retaining strap. Other than that they appear identical, including the hand sizes.

    It is a nice looking watch and it would be a shame not to get it back into service.

    Many thanks all.

    Regarding practicality of wear I was a little concerned whether, even though I wear a number of vintage dress watches, I would find the 33mm case too small. However as so often...
  21. Restoration of a Hamilton/LL Bean Field Watch

    I recently picked up a couple of watches on eBay, fully aware that they would need varying degrees of work to bring them back to a usable condition.

    The first is this LL Bean 9219 Field Watch. I...
