    Seikos are frustrating beasts, the movements are rugged and reliable and don't suffer significant wear issues when neglected, but timekeeping from new is a bit hit and miss. This was OK when they...

    Definitely need to gather more carefully measured data to assess what's really going on. A non COSC watch in good condition should still be capable of running between -2 and +6 with careful...

    Definitely worth winding every day whilst checking, that eliminates any effects from the watch running in a lower state of wind.

    I don’t like movements designed to run for 8 days, there’s more likelihood of the watch running in a low state of wind and that won’t help the timekeeping.

    First check is to confirm the watch is...

    Dials get refinished when they've deteriorated badly, invariably that's caused by water ingress. The rubber used for caseback and crown seals in the 60s has a tendency to degrade to a sticky tar-like...

    You may be right regarding the dial, the date wheel could be sticking slightly and the dial OK. The term 'redial' is one of my pet hates and I blame the internet for introducing it into everyday...

    As far as I know they were never sold in the UK, we got the Ford Cortina which was produced in England. My dad bought a new one in 1966, I remember it well (I was 8) and it was still on the road...

    Good advice. I`ve worked on a few over the years and always been impressed with the quality, as a second-hand buy in their first flush of youth they're a bargain and make far more sense than paying...

    Turn the clock back to 2006 when Rolex introduced the 116200, complete with fatter lugs, better bracelet but polished centre links. Would've been a nicer watch if they'd left the case alone and...

    I refuse to use the term ‘redial’, it’s ambiguous, redial is something you do with a phone!

    I think the dial is refinished, its reasonable but the absence of the 120 notation makes it wrong. The...

    I`m watching the England matches plus the odd one that looks appealing, I find football a boring watch thesedays.

    Regardless of whether the dial is correct I can`t see much appeal. The bezel is in poor condition, the case is battered, the caseback is battered, the date wheel appears to not line up correctly...

    Maybe it's time to accept that the original ideals and aims of the NHS, which were achievable in 1948, are no longer feasible. The NHS is considered sacrosanct but it simply doesn`t work, I`m no...

    Fixed that for you, in case you need reminding you jumped ship overseas. Can`t expect to play the smug bastard at every juncture and still be considered as one of us.

    V interesting input from Helidoc.

    Me too, or an OP36. Some of us don’t like divers or so- called sports watches. Some of us prefer 36mm watches too!

    If you can’t find a point if ingress despite exhaustive tests it’s unlikely to happen again. Possibly it was a one- off, the hatchback door may not have been closed properly and that’s allowed water...

    No, just posing a fair question. I suspect there will be supply problems in some areas if everyone converts.

    I wouldn’t entertain an electric vehicle without a home off-street parking/charging facility, but it seems like the lure of cheap running costs and BIK is too tempting for some.

    I’ve been doing this for years, at the end if a gym session I ‘dangle’ from a bar to let my spine and intercostal muscles stretch out. Started doing this in my 20s, still doing it at 60+.

    I definitely think the grab and go aspect of the quartz would tip the balance in its favour.
