    Beautiful watch and I couldnít agree more on size. 36mm-40mm is where Iím happiest. A bit bigger can work (Turtle and Tudor BB in my worn regularly rotation) but really those 4mm are great for my 16cm wrist.

    I sometimes envy those with the ability to carry off a bigger watch with aplomb but then think about all those lovely older watches that go for less money while still,looking amazing. Like yours

    I've been very restrained recently, not having bought anything since August but in a quest for spares I bought this:



    The trouble being that it is in better condition than the one that needs the spares so I don't want to break it up. The broken one is still broken and I'll have to splash out again for the spare part. Failed WIS logic there.

    The quest for spare parts also introduced me to Yaphoo Japan and Buyee which lead to another prime example of slightly dodgy WIS logic. I bought this battered green dialled Seiko, the logic being that I could bundle the two together and it wouldn't cost me any extra in postage.



    I only bought it as I don't have a green dial. It needs a fair amount of attention so it is another project watch. At the time of purchase I neglected to consider the other two project watches I have had sitting around since last winter.

    And one last one. I couldn't let it go for under £50:



    Definitely worth the punt. Beneath the scratched plexi the dial, hands and lume are in lovely condition, as is the bezel. It runs a bit fast but, surprisingly, has a power reserve just shy of 48 hours. So a bit of rework on the crystal and it should be lovely. Hang on, that makes it another project

    Had this delivered on Saturday.

    Orient Kamasu, 42mm, in-house 22 jewel, hacking movement, sapphire crystal, 200 meters water resistance and less than £200!

    The bracelet has a flimsy clasp and the crown is small and fiddly but at this price, who cares.

    The dial colour is teal green but doesn't show too well in my picture. I blame the light.

    So you went for it! I know all about flimsy clasps.

    Look forward to checking that out at the Monday night watch club

    To my mind this is an underrated version of Seamaster. Tried this on and the dial colour and contrast with the bezel is stunning. I was swayed by the new bond ltd edition but seeing this again makes me think !

    Nice little Skyliner arrived today. Frustratingly I have a strap but no 18mm spring-bars in the spares box.

    I used to have one of those, and I loved it to bits. Wonderful.

    I am very pleased with it. Just got to get used to wearing a smaller watch again. I like your photo. It nicely shows off the very pleasing dial details.

    Thanks Rajen. Canít decide if it needs a bracelet option as well . Rubber is very nicely made and super comfy. Suits it too.

    I have seen that Rubber strap. FWIW, I think it is superb and the orange accent suits the watch well. Unless, one is a strictly bracelet person, Rubber is a better option. Will look nice on a bracelet too but the rubber is so good.

    Dial is signed ĎTolletí which is amusingly similar to ĎToiletí

    OK well this arrived today and unfortunately it has a large crack/chip in the crystal at 11:00 which isn't in the pictures. Not very happy. Will see what the seller says but I REALLY don't want to play the minefield of trying to find a competent watchmaker that will replace the crystal without messing something else up in the process. Might just send it back - I wanted to open it and wear it but already the experience has been ruined... wonder why I bother sometimes!

    EDIT Iíve spoken to a watch repair place in York who will replace the crystal. It wears really nicely. The Landeron 49 movement is LOUD!! Very accurate too as far as I can tell currently. I didnít realise it has fixed wire lugs too but I wanted to try it on a perlon anyway.

    Hopefully the seller will do the right thing and compensate for the crystal. Will let you know... I little bit concerning that it arrived wrapped in bubble wrap only and it clearly hadnít even been wiped down with a microfibre cloth.

    Without question, not a chance this will be flipped. I wanted a watch for my 40th and been waiting ages for this.

    Polerouter inbound - sellers pic.



    Although I like the date version and it's trapezoidal window, I just have too many non-quickset date watches already!

    Well that lives up to its name. Puts Seiko to shame on the lume.

    Wouldn't Seiko be feeling pride, rather than shame?

    Depends. As a company yes, being part of Seiko Watch Corporation. However Lorus is at a very different price point so this is where they put their higher priced Seiko colleagues to shame.
