    Crownpuller : timex ssq
    Purchased for the princely sum of 3.60 + 2.90 postage + 3.22 (inc. postage) for a couple of batteries - All in for less than a 'tenner'
    The elbow grease & fettling were 'gratis'



    Fuzzy B : Juvenia

    Someday I will try to clean up the dial and movement a bit, but for now the original character will remain. What drew me to this one was the movement. It is a tidy little thing and the gold chatons and snail finishing in the winding mechanism hints at a decent movement. The delightfully quirky bezel also adds a bit of character to a relatively simple dial.

    The only models similar to this I have found is a solid gold ladies' version and a black dialed variation, which sold for 5 times more than mine.



    DJW : LUCH 2209
    Gains 1min 20secs in 24hrs
    Matched with a white nato strap
    cost 7.90 all in, needed new click spring (kindly donated by your friend and mine ISMY)



    Litlmn : Here is my official entry, I shall call it champagne dream.
    Vintage 19Something Casio 358 AMW.
    Everything works as it should, just needed a new battery and some slight adjustment of the pusher contacts.
    All for the low low price of $16.01 ($25 with shipping).






    Matt : certina
    The beating heart of this hand finished confection is a superlative Cal.25.651 high beat automatic, lovingly enrobed in a thick layer of creamy Swiss brass, topped with pure sapphire crystal, and lightly strapped in IWL colours



    Meijlinder : tianjin Dong Feng

    The early st5's were 18000bph. Those movements are marked with the Chinese signs for dongfeng.
    Then when the 21600 bph version was developed they were marked just 19 zuan (jewel) and ST5

    It wasn't until the branding was changed from Dongfeng (East wind) to Seagull that the now famous Seagull stripes were added to the movements.




    Ismy : Casio MTD-1067D-1AVEF chronograph.

    fully working 2000 - 2010 ish model in very fair con after a bit of elbow grease and cleaning up all in for 12.90 does come on a casio branded bracelet but for comp come's on a big chunky leather nato I had knocking around



    shout out if I got anything wrong with it oh and when you have done a comp pics / info are done I will add them to it



    edit I will remove the entry's that did not make the next level so members have an easy way of seeing what is left

    Ro63rto: Seiko 5
    Model SBW031
    7019-5000 aka "Monaco wannabe"
    Full length original bracelet
    Watch was probably used to dig for potatoes it was so dirty.
    http://www.intlwatchleague.com/showthread.php?t=19470

    It runs, keeps time to within 1min/day BUT while removing movement from waterproof casing I must have dislodged some dirt and it stuck the stem release lever open???
    Stem won't lock in and I now can't set time or use quickset to set day. Definitely needs a service.

    How about this essay

    It runs, keeps time to within 1min/day.
    Originally had a problem with the stem not locking back in place but now, after removing the hands/dial etc and fiddling around (I am not yet proficient enough to be allowed to use official watchmakers terminology) the stem release works normally. Must have been dried oil/dirt that dislodged itself.
