    Sounds like there was a job lot of that particular gift doing the rounds, I received mine in 1998 and value it to this day. ;-)

    On the OP's question, I think the main question for the parent is...

    Thanks, Guy - I'll take a look in a bit. To add to the update btw: it appears to be losing about a minute per day...!

    The expectation that one will go on bended knee to dealers, chucking money at things you don't want in the hope of being allowed to chuck more money at the thing you do want, strikes me as the very...

    To Bodo’s question: not a glimmer. Under the loupe they do look like they’ve been painted plain white. Possibly with tippex!

    Well, itís arrived. Not all bad news; the case has obviously been over polished, especially on the 3 oíclock side, the case back is exactly as bad as it looked on the eBay listing, and the bezel...

    Thanks for the input everyone - sounds like Iíve done a silly! Ah well, this is why I shouldnít combine beer and buying. FAOD: unless there is something seriously amiss with the watch, Iím not...

    So - having fallen head over heels in love with the beautiful UFO I received last week, I pottered off to eBay to see what else I could find. On Saturday night, emboldened by beer, I put in a bid on ...

    This has been the first podcast that I've really got into and enjoyed. Wonderful stuff, and absolutely chock-full of fascinating technical details and personal reminiscence.

    Another vote for CTEK here, mine did a great job of resurrecting the battery in the 928.

    There are a few which use the generic ETA version of the Aerospace movement, but they all work the same way, via the crown. Aside from the options above, if you stick with Breitling thereís the B-1,...

    I'm in too, I *really* want this one to fund, the watch looks ace - the bracelet especially, it's a real cut above. Blue, no date, 12-hour bezel for me. :smug:
