  • WAYWO this lovely Friday?

    $43 buck Vostok Amphibia for me... 15 dollars worth of parts ordered and once delivered will be as good as new. Taken on a lovely crisp Christchurch morning.

      Thanks H, I chose this over a vintage GT you had for sale at the time, interestingly similar money, the knowledgeable timekeeper who had this for sale suggested i make my own history with this rather than someone else's. On the Isofrane its got a long life ahead with me. Never been opened AFAIK.

    Morning all.

    Very fortunate and honoured to have been gifted this from my dad. It was his father's, my grandfather's. Presented to my grandad in 1958 my the South Wales Wholesale Dairyman. Other than a receipt for a service in 1970 I haven't had chance to research any further yet.

    My Dad rarely wore it and last wore it 7-8 years ago, however just a couple of shakes and off it went. Keeping pretty descent time however I will ensure it is given a light once over when a get back to NZ.

    Means a lot and it is quite a stunner in person IMHO.

    Have a good weekend all.

      This is the kind of history I think we would all like to create with our purchases. Congratulations on having a part of your own history and it being a significant watch too. I am sure many of us wish we had a similiar story. You must have felt great when that second hand took off.

          Yep - the studio made Marlon Brando remove the bezel from his GMT Master so that it wouldn't be recognisable (and look like product placement) which would have ruined the tone of the film)

          Is that right, didn't; know that (had always though (wrongly) it'd fallen off as they are somewhat prone to do... but they left the Martin Sheen 6105 alone, still massively recognisable piece imo

          Thanks for this info

            Was sorely tempted to keep it as is, with the crazed glass, however its perfect underneath and its a prick to read, so will fit the new glass and away we go... must have been a decent impact to break it in the first place.

              Not having the best Fri 13th. Courier has 'lost' package I sent to Christchurch, so that's $1650 I'm out already. Oven quite literally blew up! Molten steel and smoke everywhere - at least Fisher & Paykel are sending somebody out to check even though it's 5 yrs old. After the 3rd attempt from Christopher Ward to get me my watch - ordered on June 15th - they've finally got it as far as somewhere. Where that somewhere is, nobody knows, least of all me. So, even more haggling with them to get another one sent or get my money back. I'm going home before anything really bad happens.
