  1. Thanks to Rolie...

    Very talented bloke is Neil.

    Top job ROLIE.
  3. ZF Factory Fifty fathoms promo pictures

    Got mine yesterday too, lovely piece. Only problem I've got is I can't get the screw into the deployant buckle, it's not long enough to reach the thread once it's on the strap. Let us know how you get on with your please. Do you have pictures of the watch? :) I haven't yet dilip, if I get a chance over the weekend I'll take a couple and post 'em up.

    I' ll give it a try in the morning, I spent ages on it yesterday with no luck. I think my screw might be a tad short though. I was trying it on the other strap though cos it's longer, might be that I guess.

  6. Tudor Sub from Mary (It's Nice...)

    Great looking watch the Tudor is. I'd also love to hear the back story to the 1665.
  7. Well done everyone and great job dal, thanks for making this happen.
  8. A morning dump bump.
  9. Question About Fliegers

    Jose Maria of C & B straps made it for me. I emailed him photos of the strap from the Laco site and 2 weeks later it was made. A few more pics.
  10. zenith bronzo, front loaded movement?

    ROLIE has worked on mine and might be able to confirm or deny whether it's a front loader or not.
  11. Onze is on there, he just ended up on the same line as Micscave. Or so it appears to me. Looks like she has copy and pasted ... and it's all gone South .. Trust Onze to find himself attached to Miscave's rear end. We knew I wondered what that was!

  13. Question About Fliegers

    I was going to buy one last year but couldn't justify the cost at the time as other stuff took priority. So I bought an Athaya vintage AV001R and had the Laco closed loop pilot strap custom made for the watch. Vary satisfied with it I am too and has scratched the itch for the time being but I am going to buy one in the future. I say if you can afford it to get it, it looks brilliant and you don't see many around. Also if you're not going to flip it, I wouldn't, it's immaterial if it'll hold its value or not. If you do buy one I'm sure you'll love it and post some photos when it turns up. Here's my Athaya on custom strap.
  14. Tribute to Baldrick. AKA Neil.

    I didn't know Neil but I enjoyed his posts hugely, this place will miss him massively. He truly was one of the things that made this great forum so special. My condolence goes out to his family and those that knew him personally. RIP Baldrick
  15. Zenith - Pilot Type 20 (PIC HEAVY)

    Toro will sell you a crystal for about $80 usd. I had to buy a replacement a few months ago as I dropped mine and cracked it. ROLIE installed it for me.
