    Speedbird III (PRS-22) from the few that Eddie had left over. Really digging this watch: dial is class and the size is just perfect. Bracelet off and now sitting on an Erikaís MN:

    New to me Omega 3520.50

    As posted previously, my recently purchased Omega 3520.50 triple date arrived yesterday but I only managed to pick it up today. A little nervous being an eBay buy, I've had the back off and can confirm all is genuine and in order..



    First impressions since wearing it all afternoon.. I love it! I thought the size would be an issue after wearing 42mm for so long but it actually sits really well and feels a little more old school, a touch more subtle. It is supremely comfortable, more so than any other watch I own so perhaps the 39/40mm is the way I should be going..

    Pros -

    Dial looks mint, even through a loupe.
    Bezel (not just the insert) looks brand new. Must be NOS but is totally unmarked
    Lume is very strong (which made me question if it was genuine, hence removing the back) but doesn't last long
    Comfort - fits my wrist nicely and is very comfy
    Winds smoothly, has been recently serviced (case is marked) and is a very clean movement
    All functions work perfectly. Nice snap back on the reset.
    Pushers are nice and positive click.
    Correct 850 end links and bracelet - this possible adds to the comfort
    Hippocampus is in good shape on the back. Serial number present
    That dial! Some may say busy, I say all the info I need.

    Cons -

    You might be able to tell that the tip of the second counter hand is ever so slightly bent. This does annoy me slightly..
    Sapphire glass is has a couple of minute scratches - you really need to look for these through a loupe though, they are not noticeable in everyday wear
    Catch is a bit loose, possibly from wear bit would prefer a more substantial click
    Bracelet does have a little stretch also, not too bad and l can live with that
    Case has a couple of dings and scratches, nothing major and again, I can live with that as it has history

    All in all I'm very pleased with it. I wasn't after a safe queen and it's by no means mint, but it is an honest example and is already a favourite..

    Not really new to me but this LIP has been off my wrist for ages due to my own ham fisted attempt at trying to change a battery and breaking the contact and the second hand coming off! I'd tried Paul at electric watches but unfortunately he said he has stopped working on this type of watch now, if that's permanent or not I'm not sure. Tried a couple of others but no joy.

    Anyway webwatchmaker (Brendan) kindly agreed to take a look at it. So after a couple of weeks it's arrived back this morning looking brand new. I wear this a lot while at home, I love the mix of colours and it looks great on the NATO. Many thanks Brendan. Here (hopefully) are some pics.

    Two small(-ish) Breitling Chronomats to a growing collection.

    1. Ref A13352 with MOP dial and UTC.

    2. Ref A13050.1 "Red Arrows".

    Both full sets and in lovely condition.
    Very happy.

    Traded my Omega PO for my first Grand Seiko, a 2010 manufacture SBGM023J GMT with the 9S66 movement.
    Iíve long been a fan of Seiko, but the quality of workmanship on this GS is stunning. Previous keeper Russell has kept it in beautiful condition. Looking forward to travelling with it - got several business trips coming up where this will be perfect company.

    Very nice, Searat.

    Just had a look at GS's website for info on the movement (wanted to know if it has the independently set hour hand) and it suggests it's a Hi- Beat movement, but no markings to suggest that on the dial?

    Pulling the crown out by one notch enables the hour hand to be adjusted without stopping the second hand so that the highly accurate timekeeping delivered by the Hi-Beat 36000 is not lost.
    But then it also says

    28,800 vibrations per hour (8 beats per second)

    I picked this up a couple of weeks ago from Prestons of Wilmslow - great service, as always.

    It's everything I expected from the Basel reviews, and the black/brown work beautifully with the rose gold.

    That combination, could be the "acceptation to the rule" when it comes to Bi-Metal watches for me.

    A great looking watch. Preferable to the Pepsi, in my view.

    Looks like the great service also extended to receiving the warranty card. I was under the impression that Prestons withheld the warranty card for all Professional models.

    Yes, it does !

    I have bought many new watches from Prestons (and previously Cottrills) over the past ten years.

    They know me well, and know that I will not flog it on for a quick profit !

    What a cracking pair of watches. I think this shows the range and brilliance of Seikos design language, that one company can produce two almost diametrically opposed watch designs to such a high standard. I would struggle to choose between the two for most occasions.
