That is fantastic
FFS! That is amazin
Apparently it doesn’t have the “decommission” papers anymore but lots of pictures of him wearing it “ at work” . And it wasn’t like it’s a random stranger appoaching me , I brought it up. And the owners family I have known for years ( they were my daughters childminders)
Watch this space .
Having a little clear out and found these 20mm Zulu diver straps. The black stripe fake Erika and khaki Nato are unworn.
Light grey Erika Has been worn for about a week.
Any interest in all three for £15 posted?
Go on then.
Gah, second dibs!
@ejay2.0 Lose the strap and stick it on a Nato.
Also. Lack of the word 'diver'. :oP
so the discussion of depth that you can take watches to is kinda interesting to me.
I have a 1969 Seiko 6105-8000 (my fathers since new), and it's a "double" proof version. Says Water Proof 150m on dial and case.
Then during the 70's watch companies seem to have stopped saying Waterproof and switched to Water Resistant. Anyone know why ? Was there some court case / legal thing / worry that they are 99.99999% waterproof but shit happens?
I see all these watches "rated" to a depth but no one saves waterproof any more
Yeah, it was a legal thing. Waterproof implies infallible / guaranteed, water resistant is more “sorry, we tried”.
Apparently it was due to a law passed in 1968.
ahh thanks for the article! I had tried to google and couldn't find it
... heh shame my watch is DEFINITELY not even splash proof now. The guy who restored it asked if I wanted to go to all the effort of seals etc... I decided no for now, I'll never dive with it
Great find, I hope it doesn’t end up back in the drawer. They must’ve been happy when they googled what they fetch!
Well he obviously likes the omega seamaster. Trade him for one!!
How cool is this! Who needs a rotor when you can have a hammer winding mechanism that more closely mimics the power generation and delivery from a grandfather clock’s pendulum.
Er. That's cool as fuck.
First G-Shock I've had on my wrist, think I get it now!
Hopefully not too long a wait for the mod kit.
That's cool too!
Soz... I got over excited and felt like a kid watching the new old movement.
No. I like it a lot.
Made me think someone should use the mazda rotary as a template. 😎
Good morning Friday
Good evening Friday
