    Remember to only use words beginning with ‘R’!

    I love these threads where an expert takes their latest purchase apart and then reconstitutes it looking better than the original. More pics please!

    I’ve only been once. I was based in the French Concession area; plenty to see at street level, older ‘east meets west’ buildings from colonial times, cafés, street food etc.

    I was there from ‘83 to ‘86 so we overlapped :). I do remember an open day visit, but maybe that was just for the Physics faculty. Me and three mates piled into a Cortina, with a whip round for the...

    That’s a nice looking watch. Montres Choisi relaunched in 2013. Their ‘Heritage’ and ‘1929’ ranges have some nice vintage designs, but make the OP’s point by having 42mm-44mm cases....

    Nice to see, thanks. MarkB mentions in an earlier post that he has a 5100 version with UAE airforce markings on the back. I’m sure there will be others, it was clearly a popular movement for aero...

    Watches running incredibly fast. The reason?

    My little blue box is a Tianjin off eBay. This video of it in action starts slow but is actually a very good guide to how to demagnetise.

    I couldn’t resist posting this press release from the European Space Agency website, 2006. It refers to a meeting where ‘the Head of the Federal Space Agency Anatoly...

    Nicely done! I was watching that one, thinking it looked nice but I’ve got one too many ‘project’ watches already. I’m glad it all works, must be one of the best around.

  21. Fortis Stratoliner / Lemania 5100 and a bit of aerospace history.

    That was well spotted :).

    Final link from me for now before I start boring everyone. Fortis published a book in 2012 to commemorate their 100 year anniversary.

    You are very welcome. Just take anything that comes from Fortis’ marketing department with a pinch of salt. BTW what does the caseback of your one look like if you don’t mind me asking?
  24. Fortis Stratoliner / Lemania 5100 and a bit of aerospace history.

    Apparently this is from the first spaceflight that used the original Fortis Official Cosmonauts watch - the Lemania 5100 version derived from the Stratoliner like mine.
