    Agreed with the other two, can't think of another.

    They make such cool watches.

    Oh yes! What a strange place for it, given you'll grip it when cutting?

    How does the lock work - what do you have to disengage/press to make the blade close?

    I can find very little information about those at all.

    That is a fantastic looking thing.

    I was looking at Questar 3.5'' on eBay just last week having learned of Stanley Kubrick's and Arthur C. Clarke's discussion on them prior to 2001.

    A very nice watch indeed.

    Is that a compass on the strap at 6?

    Many thanks to you all for your advice and suggestions - I'll investigate the various options and see what the current state of play is with servicing these movements.

    This duet is phenomenal. Never heard of Haley Reinhart before, but that is one of the most impressive and enchanting voices I've heard:

    Apologies, I was referring to this in the context of mechanicals rather than digital watches.

    Shoot Seiko an email? Only they'll be able to tell you what it's rated for.

    Maybe to prevent accidental stopping if knocked when under water?

    Unlikely though.

    Pushers being used under water is an unusual and usually shouted-about feature.

    Mine is not set-up for audio quality really (Bluetooth or optical audio to aux adapter) as it's on a shelf above the TV, but it sounds good to me for most uses.

  16. Recommended watchmaker for Lemania 5100 and 1341?

    Afternoon TZ,

    In my search for a Lemania 5100 movemented watch, I've come across various sources citing concerns about servicing and parts sourcing.

    Who do you send your Lemania 5100 and 1341...

    The independent hour hand is the main appeal of the GMT for me. I'd love one on my non-GMTs!

    The Hong Kong one does look very similar. The one at the exhibition was brassy though, rather than silvered (presumably the coating had worn off?).

    It is quite honestly the best exhibition I've ever been to. Absolutely superbly curated, extremely well organised and extremely interesting too. It's not often you get the three combined!

    To me, this feels like a special edition for the sake of it, rather than a redo of an old classic, unlike the Gulf version - is there history here that is missing from their blurb?

    It's essentially expensive Lego. They want it to be easy so you can swap out parts yourself and constantly buy more and upgrade.

    Software is the faff.

    I've never heard of such a thing, but sure enough, they do exist and don't look as daft as I'd assumed!

    What cracking looking things.

    These seem cheap (too cheap?) but you'll need to import.
