    Very good review. Worth watching not least for the history lesson. I've worn my Air Ministry constantly for 18 months so he's preaching to the converted a bit. Olive canvas? Er, no thanks, but...

    Lovely. My favourite Khaki. Just about perfect (minus the useless 24hr numbering - yes, I know it's a nod to Hamilton's American heritage). Shame Hamilton had to go and 'modernise' it.

    Congrats. I'd say it's hard to beat at four times the price. Has a kind of Aqua Terra/Rolex OP vibe going on. Bought one of these a couple of months ago and paid £60 for mine. Rubbish lume but...

    I like the idea of an Ey-Up! (I'm from Yorkshire). Ad slogan: 'Drive like you bl**dy well like!'

    Big fan of ATPs. That is lovely and looks to be in nice condition. Great heirloom.

    (a) is true for me

    (b) Cousins do not sell Orient movements separately. That doesn't bode well for the availability of movements/movement parts without hours of Googling and the distinct...

    No, for me the best dial design was from the 1953. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms - the original dive watch. TBH I prefer the more discreet 50s design to the modern version.

    Send it to Seiko and save some hassle. Most likely their 'service' will include fitting a new movement whether it's b*ggered or not.

    Thanks for the correction. However, a 30m Casio has been taken down to 30m and shrugged it off, but again, I take your point.

    Water pressure increases by 1 atm every 10m. So, at 20m the pressure is 3 atm. At 50m it's 6 atm. I fail to see how 'waving it gently in the water' can double the pressure. Perhaps you could...

    You're overthinking this OP. Small ziplock food bag from the supermarket is all I've ever used (not the same one obvs. - before some joker makes a comment).

    Have no fear. Mine has lasted four years and still going strong with no sign of going south anytime soon. The only problem for me with these is I'd like a bit more length.

    Don't mean to sound negative, but old doesn't necessarily mean valuable. It will be a niche market I'd say (ie not that many potential buyers) and only of historical interest (important though that...
