    Got my UK Ed White back from the spa — it didn’t even need a service. But I put a proper A1 crown on it (thank you @omegastar !). :)

    I’ve also put it on an 1125 bracelet (thank you @Toishome !). :cool:

    Bad news is the Istanbul Ed White has a broken hammer spring (infamous part 1734). :oops:Now on the look out for more Omega unobtainium. Ah well... win some and lose some.

    One thing not in doubt: I am indebted to OF and its members. :thumbsup:

    EDIT: ordered two 1734s from these guys, found from another OF thread!

    Even unobtainium can be obtained with OF’s help!

    We were there in 2008. We were supposed to go on a boat sight seeing trip that day. Missed out because the boat was out of commission. Drat! Loved the Lakes District!

    There's too much "Seiko-ness" on the Forum today. I'm suggestible so am doing Seiko Saturday here.

    Was not that fun. Adjusted the stainless steel bracelet. Damn those screws are small. At least I believe I can now change straps, adjust bracelets and not butcher the watch. Kinda proud of myself when others unfortunately have boutique employee scratch the hell of their watch. 3C701DFD-05C4-41F7-B0AE-E586C2826102.jpeg A3A0CE4B-2CB9-4653-8BE9-52BAE7AEF785.jpeg C675536D-B029-40A6-A30F-D16B649E1393.jpeg
    Automatic watches spoil me, I am sitting here waiting for the Speedmaster to start “ticking” till I remember like a buffoon to wind it

    Quite the contrast in these two specimens. Really like them. Can’t wait to add to the modern group over the years. E0D50BE0-6ABE-44FD-A95C-893C7A23414F.jpeg

    I kinda thought it was magnetised.
    Would dealer service it to have it demagnetised?

    Thanks

    A rare and valueless vintage swiss automatic watch in a very old and used original omega strap. Love the dial and the numerals.
