    Thank you.

    I will try to get the story written up in the course of the next few days, but suffice to say that but for Brendan's diligence the watch wouldn't be here.

    Arrived back from Brendan just this morning, who has worked his magic in resurrecting this Breitling.

    Full story to follow.

    I cooked venison goulash the other day, using smoked sweet paprika. After initially browning the meat in a casserole dish I then stuck it in the bottom oven of the Aga for a few hours.

    Yes, it might well be a redial.

    The "black underneath" comment about the hands was more an impression than a certainty though!

    Quite possibly - on both points.

    However the typeface doesn't look like the corporate Dupont logo (either the "S.T." or "de Nemours" variety). The only other Dupont Extra watches I've found on...
  7. Dupont Extra - anyone know anything about them?

    This watch tickled my fancy on eBay, if only for the Geneva strips on the movement and the somewhat quirky red hands on blue dial with gilt hour markings.

    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.

    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.
  18. 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.

    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.
