    Red indicator ring for 36mm, single crown, super compressor case

    I have been fortunate in finally securing a World Time to go along with my Time. It's a project and more than a bit on the well used side with a patinated dial and hands -- hmm, when does patina became corrosion? It went for modest dineros because of its aforementioned condition, a wrong crown...

    Send in the clones

    Do you ever settle on one?

    WRUW today?

    Nice! Jets are my favourite after Guides. I find the Guides more "visually interesting" but the Jets are a purer design.

    Jim wrote "... the Graph was the top line of Enicar..." That's the funny thing. At the time the funny looking "Sherpa Star" watches were more than the Sherpa Graphs. Can't imagine why...

    Sherpa Guide city bezel

    Steve directed me to a ebay sale. I don't think it was his. Watch ebay. They do come up. I bought an NOS one earlier this year. Wasn't cheap, mind.

    User Guide 33 Mk1-2 transition?

    PS: Looking for a somewhat less beat up cities ring (not a mint one) and a set of main hands in fair condition (again, not mint) to replace these ill-lumed ones.

    User Guide 33 Mk1-2 transition?

    Picked up another Guide 33. This one may be an early Mk 2. It certainly doesn’t look messed with — other than heavily used, of course. Curious about others’ thoughts on whether the crescent moon 24 hr hand is legit or a later replacement. My plan is to overhaul it and use it as I find myself...

    An Enicar Beads of Rice bracelet thread - previously named "Just in from Jakarta"

    My concern would be with the ill fitting end links marking the case. Not a big deal with my user oriented watches but you’d want to be careful with a genuinely nice watch — don’t worry, I have a few of those as well ;-)

    An Enicar Beads of Rice bracelet thread - previously named "Just in from Jakarta"

    I have “adjusted” end links in the past. I use a large drum sander on a dremel. Works well. Go slowly as there is no going back from “too far”. You can also loosen loops the link sits further back. All this I have done for user watches. Mint watches I would just keep looking until the...
