    Going for simple understated elegance today. Don't know why considering my penchant for brash, loud-mouthed idiocy.
    The boot sale threw up an interesting little Timex item, a Hopalong Cassidy child's watch

    .. which had been jammed and corroded for the last thirty years by the look of it. I gently took it apart and began a crash course on Timex anatomy. Success was slow but within my grasp when the mainspring broke,especially irksome as it had just started to run under its own steam again. So I put all the bits in a small box for later and the whilst doing so the face fell off - literally, the painted numbers and Hopalong Cassidy just flaked away from the base metal. That sort of thing is terminal in my book. It means that I have an original strap with the belt buckle and capped ends if anybody needs one. They are not perfect but they are complete. Let me know ...

    Picked up a citizen 555 this morning. I have to change the band for something that fits but I'll be wearing it after that.

    My watch of the day is a 1970s Jilin HJ1A Meihualu with repainted dial. In the tradition of Eduard Bovet (broadly speaking ), it is a pocket watch with a full-sized movement with directly-driven sweep hand:

    1960s Onsa Superautomatic today, ETA cal. 2453, 30 jewels and lots of radioactive material on dial and hands (although produced rather late for coming up with such readings), but it passed my personal safety test at 30mm distance with the probe left open for alpha-, beta- and gamma radiation. Above the 2 mrad/hour warning level from the front (3.8 mrad/hour), but acceptable from the back (0,15 mrad/hour).

    That's for all out there in the believe that collecting vintage watches is a safe hobby, better than bungee jumping!
