Derby, U.K.

I collect wristwatches, very eclectic mix with brand new Hugo Boss and 1920's Elgin! I love Seiko's and Bulova's, anything unusual.

  1. A typical update of the "ERMETO" watches made by Movado in the 1930's. Very nice watch, I really like it. Well, I do collect Bulova... ;-)
  2. I think anyone who touts themselves as an expert rarely are one in my experience. I like that watch, it is probably around the mid-1920's in date. The swan logo is used by the Record Watch company (...
  3. That's a real beauty whyatt. I like that it uses those three particular blade styles, useful all-rounder!
  4. Nice old knife, the long marlinspike was for undoing knots in wet rope on board ships/boats. It looks to have been bent a little at the point. It looks to have quite some age, probably early 1900's ...
  5. Very nice and unusual watch! The "DOW" on the balance cock is for the Deauville (Ollendorff) watch corp. Pre-1965, I would say around the late fifties.
  6. I don't have any non-acid micro-crystalline wax. I thought that a baby-type hand cream (it's good enough and safe enough for hands/nails, right?) would be okay to use. I used a hand cream with no per...
  7. Thanks for the comments and the loves guys. Good thinking with the welding gear bb2, must check it out with a welder!
  8. Very nice knife! I love how it has three different types of blade, the clip point (the longest), the sheep or lambfoot (on the other end), and the Spey blade next to the clip. The "IXL" should be "I...
  9. Very nice knife. It is an image of the Greek island of Crete, both on the blade and handle.
  10. Thanks KJ, it certainly helps with an identification!
  11. Thanks whyatt, the scales do look kind of wooden, but they are man-made, I saw it was delrin on another site. This hardly ever gets used now, it is a real nail-breaker to open! I only open it with nee...
  12. Thanks Rick, much appreciated!
  13. Try these, there are a few links to look at. Possibly Samuel Saynor. http://www.sheffieldhistory.co.uk/forums/topic/3156-prunninggardening-knives/ http://www.britishblades.com/forums/showthread....
  14. Can't believe I missed this one! Absolute stunner to be sure, and I never saw one before. You sure are a lucky guy!
  15. The type of corkscrew used on this lovely knife makes me think it has some real age to it. Love the horn scales, and those horsey bolsters are great!
  16. Beautiful knife Bob. Cellulose used in old/vintage watch crystals caused rusting inside the watch, this is because of the gases given off by decaying cellulose. The same may happen if used in stored ...
  17. Expensive repair to the glass, I think these are set in place using an adhesive using heat. The case and band are ceramic.
  18. You are so right Bill! I have another identical to the Hallite advertising one (somewhere) and the blades are totally untouched and like new, very sharp indeed.
  19. Thanks KJ, and thanks to all for the loves.
  20. Thanks so much, glad you liked it.
  21. That is the Phillip Perseo logo. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Philip-Persio-Quartz-Dress-Wristwatch-70AAM02141-Spares-Repair-/282208320014?hash=item41b4ed3a0e:g:PqEAAOSw4shX59Bj
  22. Beautiful Bill, just beautiful. Love that Swedish hunter!
  23. Hi, it is a "CAVOUR" model by the New England Watch Co. https://pocketwatchdatabase.com/profile/aelgtoer/collection/view/59353 Yours is earlier than the one above because of serial number. Pe...
  24. Bill, such an amazing collection! I love every single piece, well done on having such a beautiful array. Thanks again for posting these, so cool...
  25. Thanks Bill, have you posted it? Love the oldies, me!
  26. You're welcome, thanks for the loves!
  27. This vase is so beautiful, it made my breath catch when I first saw it. You must be very happy sir! Congratulations, Bob
  28. Thanks again KJ, and thanks for the loves!
  29. Thanks KJ, that one was the cheapest one at £1. Thanks everyone for the loves.
  30. Thanks for the loves everyone!
  31. Thanks flea and tassie! Thanks all for the loves.
  32. Thanks, olebodie, and thanks all for the loves!
  33. racer4four, thanks so much. kyratango, thanks to you too. Thank you all for the loves.
  34. Thanks Efesgirl, I was so happy to find it too! I bought a nice slim silver chain for it, but my wife has yet to wear it... BTW, a jewelers shop I checked the day I found this had some similar but mo...
  35. I have "rescued" quite a few items from that particular shop Martika! I have tried to talk to them, saying I would help with any valuing/identification, but they don't care. I'm glad in a way... ;-...
  36. BTW, it's tough digging round that area! My crew and I once took over 13 hours to put in just two telegraph poles at a farm in Castleton, the rock was so tough to drill!
  37. Thank you Tassie, and thanks for the love. Thanks to Vetraio50 and Martika too!
  38. Thank you all for the loves!
  39. Thanks KJ, it is a looker all right! Thanks for the loves guys.
  40. Efe, thanks for the remarks and the link. I see what you mean, but when I said flakes, I meant that the blade of the case opener I used (sharp) took off a flake of metal. There was no base metal behi...
  41. Nice Omega! The serial number will be on the dial side of the movement, so unless you can do this the exact age will be hard to find. The movement is the 18''', made between 1894-1911. http://www....
  42. Simply stunning looking knife.
  43. I like it, great knife Whyatt! I think the blade you have out straight is an electricians, I have a single blade model that has been sharpened in a similar manner. Must post it!
  44. KJ, thank you for that. She will be in for a surprise when I show her this thread at the weekend! Again, thanks for the loves people. Regards, Bob.
