Ooh, that would be good. Although having had the back off mine meant I saw things I didn't want to see. Like the lack of movement ring and wrong battery clip. Shouldn't be too difficult to rectify though.

Wimm Thank you all for your warm welcome. I know it is a slippery slope. I've only really started collecting in the last twelve months but the watches have ballooned from two to twelve or so. I really need to slow down and be a bit more targeted. I'm just a bit of a sucker for watches with cool sounding names. And I think the Japanese do that best. Helps if they look good too.

In my excitement of writing my first post I neglected to mention a couple of other Japanese watches.

Pulsar "Spoon" W671-4170 which was the first watch I bought for myself and probably begun this journey, albeit twenty years ago.

And my trusty Citizen eco drive BM8180-03E, my camping and general outdoor activity watch. Love the idea of a solar watch. Definitely one for the zombie apocalypse.

bradurani Welcome! 70s watches have the best names. Computron, Accutron, Tronosonic, Speedsonic, Time Computer. I too got into electro-mechanical watches when I started because I loved the cool history, names and cheap prices. One caveat though is that if they have a problem, most watchmakers won't service them. You can probably find specialist watchmakers online, maybe even on this forum, but the service cost is often more than the value of the watch. Don't let that dissuade you if you love though, just know that caveat.
Enjoy the hobby. Get a second job. You're going to need it to fund your habit [emoji6]

mwadner Howdy and welcome aboard.

And +1 to the Cosmotron - more watches need far out names like that.
