Dear reader of our Watchguy blog.
I enjoy acquiring and fixing watches that I find interesting. However it is an expensive hobby and the time I spend on my own watches takes time away from client watches. Therefore I have decided to showcase my collection to anybody who is interested. All watches I list on this page have either been inspected or serviced by myself personally. This is my own little project and Christian has very kindly allowed me to list these watches on the watchguy.co.uk site. He is not responsible for any of the watches I sell.
I have another Helvetia in need of a little attention as it is not running and the crystal is a little cracked. Continue reading
Anders has sent us this impressive B-Uhr for a service.
We’ve seen the alpha on this blog before, but not yet the beta, so it’s about time! Steven sent his watch in for a service, as it’s not performing any more as it should.
Amanda sent in her Nomos, and as my regular readers know, I’m quite fond of Nomos watches. It’s the design and simplicity that I like. Very Bauhaus, not only in looks, but also in spirit. Continue reading
I’m a fan and collector of Junghans chronometer watches, but also enjoy some of their more unusual watches with funky designs. This is the second-generation quartz movement from Junghans from some time in the mid 70’s.
The watch is in decent condition considering the age, but is not running!
My girlfriend’s uncle Dennis was given this Junghans on his 10th birthday and amazingly he still has it! Nothing I owned at the age of 10 remains today!
Considering the crystal and second hand is missing the watch is in fairly good condition.
Not something you will see every day, and as it’s a rare Junghans, it belongs of course to Torsten. The watch has a great looking black dial, red second hand, and, above all, a power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. Continue reading
It’s a Junghans, so chances are high that Torsten sent it in 😉
Junghans joined of course the Alarm watch craze, and came up with the TopTimer. This is the super high-end offering of alarm watches, with day, date, and an auto winder that winds both the movement and alarm mainsprings! Continue reading
From the heady days of highly jewelled pin-pallet movements, we have this Buler watch here that Richard sent in. The lume on the hands is breaking off, and the watch doesn’t work any more. Continue reading
