    Actively seeking Tuna of all shapes and sizes...to hunt your pride of lions...

  • #2
    i was a lot happier at LVL4 & 3. it seems kiwis are only interested in filling up shops to buy pointless crap they lived without for 7weeks and driving like retards every morning. nice to see after all the nonsense people still think 5ft is a safe following distance at 100kph

    on the up side, tuna today and a wee bit of Venison going in the slow cooker for the boys its great when the fun police have to do their site business remotely.

      Tell me about it. Can't believe we didn't work out a way to ban tradies from driving during lockdown. Some of the stuff I've seen since Level 3 started has just been ridiculous, although not surprising unfortunately.

      Maaate, this is exactly the sentiment I got from someone yesterday, saying the exact same thing as you.

      Yip, was guessing that much (plainly not a rabbit back steak) but I mean what did it weigh & how did the 4hrs work out Sir?

      Few of us have a wee bet on the heart rate of that slab at the 4h mark

      Good shot too, deerworrier,

        Welcome to Timekeeper, vm100in ...I think it was very smart how Tissot turned the ETA Quartz Chronograph 251.471 upside-down to achieve the Bascule chrono. Like the rectangular case also—must give it a great wrist presence.

        Arrived this morning - one of the Citizen Leopard high-beats that they produced for a little while in the 1970s. The 7700-series movements had a few variations across the number of jewels (24, 26, 28 and 31) and beats per hour between 28,800 and 36,000. Managed to snag this one dated to September 1973 in good condition with all original parts including the bracelet and the 'CTZ' signed crown. From what I have read these are high-quality movements that were near the peak of Citizen's automatic offerings at the time.

        The 7710 movement inside this particular watch runs at 28,800 and has a real quirky day/date quickset function. Depending on the position of the watch, pushing the crown in will change either the day or date - with 12 o'clock up it flicks the date forward, while inverting the watch around to have 6 o'clock up flicks the day of the week. I'd like to know more about the specific mechanism in the movement that allows for this (a positional lever of some sort?) but it's very weird and interesting.






        Old and new(er) together:





        The case has really nice angular lines and is a comfortable size, the dial is clear and legible and has a subtle striped finish that is visible in certain light. I haven't had a high-beat movement before and this feels like a nice way to start, looking forward to wearing it today and over the weekend.


        Have a good weekend all!

          Beaut watch, love to know how it senses which wheel to adjust based on case position.

          Probably uses a computer of some sort.

          I liked this so much when you posted it the other day I went searching. Sadly it's well out of my price range. Cool watch though.

          They go second hand for well under half retail. It’s a nice watch, Bracelet is excellent for what it is and it’s not one you see every day. I enjoy having one in the box.

          There is also a rubber strap metal case version instead, that I same close to buying, but my gorilla wrists prevented it fitting.

          Leroy, I was in the same boat as you, and didn't have that much to spend on these new full-metal. However, I discovered the original late-1990s MR-G full-metal, and I got my fix. They are affordable, collectible, and, provided you buy well, no depreciation.

            Lovely. I have a soft spot for the Lord Matic. Really good value for money and so many variants. I think I've commented on this one before and said the same thing - this is a nice early one without the LM badge on the dial. I would guess very early 1968??

            Thanks - it's a lovely piece. Had it for quite a while and it keeps great time for its age. It is August 68 judging by the serial. Also got a King Seiko from 72 but don't wear that one nearly as much
