• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    Off to a good start?

    Ron hit it just right.....Dave another great idea. You both are on my frequency....... I think for what little I'd have to shell out though the Alpha wins here.

    When it rains it pours

    I have found it amazing that I started collecting pockets and as time slips by, I am looking at clocks, watches, and other instruments as well. Has anyone else been compelled by the uncontrollable urge to do the same? The more you read & learn the broader your interest grows. :oAfter all the...

    Alpha...........Interesting................ -> posts merged by system <- With all due respect. It is a "Swiss Made Mechanical Automatic Watch" and if there is going to be a problem, I'd like my post modified to state as such. Please Remove the name ROLEX from my first post as well as all...

    US$500.00 for one Hebdomas??

    I'd also have to agree myself, but unfortunately the Purists on here will spank you for it, bellyache and gripe. Best off to feel out a situation, learn who is knowlegeable and ask on a personal message.

    Honestly I don't know "7750 but it could be 7733" . They say I think Valijoux 31 Jewel if my memory serves me. Ron, I can't honestly believe a >>>>>CHINESE ANYTHING<<<<< let alone a watch movement is better than a swiss.....be it 7750 or any other! They are 200.00 and have a swiss made ETA...

    Off to a good start?

    What is the general opinion of quality on a Swiss ETA Movement. I want a Automatic Mechanical and a "Fakex" looks like a possibility. It has a Valjouix automatic movement. I know it is not a real Rolex, but it seems to be a nice watch all the same and meets the requirements of a jeweled...

    When it rains it pours

    The other thing as I have learned from trying to research my family's WW2 veterans is old records are sketchy. I believe anything is possible. With that said I'd like to thank all those people on here who with selfishless acts of kindness and hours upon hours of research, provided newbies like...

    When it rains it pours

    Tref.....DMK = Damaskeenor old 992 yes! Yes I do like Larry's watch(just to steep for me right now) Before I'd spend over 225.00 I'd be sure what it is I am buying. I would most likely do something like this at a show, spend a little extra but would be sure what I was getting. Robert, I would...

    When it rains it pours

    Ok now I'm confused.......?????:confused: Even if it would end up a 992 DMK thats ok too if that is what you mean...???????????? I seem to remember a thread on the #2 case not in White Gold for the 992B. Even still Yellow with no brassing will be fine. 992, #2 White or 992B #2 Yellow

    The five "best" Hamiltons?

    I've been bouncing this same question around for awhile and figured I'd throw my hay penny in (as I am now collecting these, I don't even have 2 cents). :eek: A solid inexpensive Hamilton start, and what I'm up to is: 940 21J Marked Motor Barrel Adjusted 5 Positions 974 17J 996 19J 990 21J 992...

    Back of the Watch Pix

    I would drive myself nutz with something like this. I could spend a lifetime trying in vain to figure out who that was, and I'd be crazy enough to do it. If I'd ever aquire a watch like that, I'd have to know. That is one of thoes things thats priceless. Imagine if there was a name on it. You...

    When it rains it pours

    Fred, Thanks for the link to the thread. It was great reading. I for the most part read the whole thing word for word untill the 950 parts. I skimmed those and zeroed in on 992 cases. 950's-They are just too expensive and of no interest to me. I see it this way, before I go after the high dollar...
