    My little box of vintage pieces.

    This is actually my first post in the vintage forum so thought I'd share with you my small vintage collection.






















    Hope you enjoy the pics.

    Kind regards,

    Simon.

    Thanks joeuk. Been admiring a number of JLC Memovox's lately as well as a Croton Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver. Would love to pick up a nice clean Speedy cal.861 too. Just need some £££.

    The Cyma is probably a redial but it is a nice design, evocative of its era.

    The TAG is a classic from the mid 80's. The movement is a Dubois Depraz chronograph module mounted atop an ESA quartz movement. Heuer first created this watch with the same chronograph module mounted atop an ETA 2892-2. Actually Lemania built the movements and called the automatic version the LWO-283. Hamilton and a few others also used them. I know of no calibre designation for the quartz version you have. (Note the use of a below crystal cyclops to make the base movement mounted date wheel usable. The DD module is not super thin...)

    Nice examples in very good condition. Thanks for posting!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    Excellent taste. All nice - particularly like the Cyma. Welcome to the forum.
