    Demagnetising is the first thing to try, but there are several other reasons for a watch to run 1 min/ day fast. Find someone local who can put it on a timegrapher and see whatís going on. Ideally,...

    Are you sure you 'killed them' or did they just reach a stage where they needed servicing?

    As a child in the 60s I was obsessed with space exploration, I was 11 when the first moonwalk happened in ‘69 and I remember it well. There was a sense of anticlimax afterwards and I don’t think...

    I find it incredible that the buyer, who subsequently sold the watch on, mis- described the watch as automatic. Canít see how heís got any chance of returning the watch to the original seller (the...

    HS2 is more about capacity than speed.

    Maybe the working from home revolution will change the demand for rail capacity radically?

    I just can’t see the value in this watch unless you have a period correct dial, bezel and handset kicking around.

    Restoring it with service replacement items defeats the object, totally wrong way...

    Stand by my previous comments, canít see how this can possibly be worth buying, itís a tired old watch lacking dial, hands and bezel.

    Interesting article, although I’m not a Hodinkee fan. The obsession with originality has gone way too far in my opinion, this was written in 2016 and it’s debatable whether such articles inform or...

    Why would anyone produce a dial with 3 completely different fonts on the subdials?
