  1. #1

    My new Winter watch....(and end of year show)....

    .............has arrived today and I am very impressed - the white certainly has a Christmas/Winter feel and quality is top notch - big thanks to Claus for a trouble free transaction :thumbright:

    For specification check the FS ad http://www.tz-uk.com/forum/viewtopic...elson#p2046459










    And I thought I would take an end of year photo of the current pieces

    Yes, the bezel insert is sapphire and the dial is ceramic :)

    WOW - love the lume on the Helson 8)
    Can't believe you can get all that for just a few hundred quid :shock:

    The rest of the collection ain't bad, either...

    Interesting case design. Does it open up forwards i.e. the front section comes out?

  15. #15

    Re: My new Winter watch....(and end of year show)....

    the case..I wish they could have kept the contour..

    I like the dial on the Helson, nice watch. That Zenith in your collection is really great too.

    regards,

    Lovely watch, although these "tribute" watches do make me feel a little icky.

    Out of your collection I'd wear the ploprof as my all year watch. Impressed by the helson though, hadn't seen the white variation before.

    Very nice, looks like an impressive built quality.
    I wonder on which model it's based........ :D .

    Isn't it a crime getting it serviced? with the mono-bloc construction?

    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Any competent watch fettler should be able to get in, going through the front door rather than the back door (Ooo..err) can be a challenge, but I have managed it.......

    Stunning Helson, a real eye catcher....my favourite would be your Zenith Rainbow Flyback....had one and really miss it

    Re: My new Winter watch....(and end of year show)....

    Put it on the Helson mesh, and unusally for my wrist it actually fits reall well

    Very nice, Derek!

    I thought the claus reference was a joke at first :lol: has the right colour combo for a Christmas watch anyway, with the red and white.
    The back just makes me want to run my nail over it

    Is that still the same Breitling? :wink:

    Re: My new Winter watch....(and end of year show)....

    Sapphire covered bezels are probably the nicest.

    That's a great watch! I like the idea of pairing vintage good looks with modern, trouble-free internals. Wear it in good health!

    Hi Mate yes it is, don't seem to see many around these days, I love mine and so pleased I got it, perfect case size and functions.

    That Helson looks great - a real chunky watch.

    I like your Seiko 7a28 with the modded orange hand as well - I've got the standard one, again a really nice watch with classic looks and great build quality.

    Hi Mate, It is a 7A38-7080, not 7A28 or modded at all :)
