    I'd like to donate this Seiko 6309. It was the subject of the Refurbishment tutorial I did back in march, so it's in pretty much as new order.

    All working fine.

    The work was indeed reasonable. I never expected an STS finish to the case, nor did I want one. I wanted a workaday finish to a watch which I could wear every...

    Omega - Good service recommendation.

    You may remember a few weeks ago, that I bought an vintage Omega Speed master Professional Mk II which at the first sign of a shower showed water inside the case.

    I spoke to a few repairers, who...

    Welcome!

    That could find a home on my wrist, any time. With that kind of style, it doesn't really matter that there isn't a name on the dial, it's what's inside that matters, and it's almost a...

    An ultrasonic cleaner can be useful if you are absolutely certain that your watch is water tight. Otherwise any of the solutions above can be worth trying.

    If I want to give my watch a thorough...

    The Friday watch thread.

    Sadly, I'll never know, because it doesn't have the original case back. The chap that serviced it said that it almost certainly is, the dates match.

    Whatever, it's still quite rare, and in lovely...

    They are fine on modern watches, but frankly, awful on vintage watches.

    I feel that in the light of the edit I've made to my OP, that I don't wis to make any futher additions to this thread. It now seems pointless. Others may do so if they wish.

    Read my post above.

    The same goes for the pair of you.

    You have absolutely no idea, and clearly no idea about watches, their construction, and expectation of use.

    If you had taken the time to read my posts properly, you wouldn't write such infantile hogwash. You obviously know nothing about watches/watchmaking/horology. Take some time to learn before...

    OK,

    I'll tell you why I'm so bloody annoyed.

    In my post I do say that I do not hold the seller responsible for the fault. I do say that I did not expect any service history, nor did I expect the seller to meet 50% of the service cost, except...
  19. Sales corner. First unhappy deal in over fifteen years. Have I expected too much?

    I bought a watch last week. Not a cheap watch, at least I don't think so, over ฃ150Watch was delivered on time, no box, no warrantyn but I expected this, it was a vintage classic. Even so, one...

    Well, Pinion Watches!! I have admired these watches for quite a while. My sort of watch in fact, with real design integrity.
