Breitling Sirius Perpetual B62011
Breitling Sirius Perpetual
Stainless Steel case with Gold riders
Blue dial with gold hands
New ETA movement with correct H3 height for hands
I bought this towards the end of last year, it wasn't working and the movement was beyond repair. The case also displayed signs of being a daily wearer for a number of years. The perpetual calendar movement in this watch is no longer available, not even to Breitling, so I have fitted a brand new replacement non perpetual movement as specified by Breitling. The movement retains the ability to move the hour hand in 1hr increments, perfect for changing time zones with out affecting the minutes.
I have given the case and bezel a polish. There are a few marks remaining here and there but in general it looks really good. I have also replaced the case back seal and greased the crown, I have not tested its water resistance however. A nice black leather strap completes the makeover.
A couple of things to point out, there are some areas of paint loss on the dial, the few around the centre look like they are from a previous hand removal. They are fairly discreet and don't detract from the watch. The AR coating also displays signs of being well used under the right light. In reality this is a really nice watch with a brand new movement and provides an affordable entry into Breitling ownership.
The Brenray Watch Cleaning Machine
I've been using this for the last 18 months during which time it has been faultless. I've just purchased an Elma RM90 so this machine is now surplus to requirements.
The cleaning basket has to be moved manually from one jar to another so it's best suited to occasional use as opposed to professional use, hence my purchase above. The upside is that there is far less to go wrong with it than an automated model.
The machine has one cleaning jar, two rinsing jars and a heater. There are a few bits of aesthetic wear which can be seen in the pictures but everything is working as it should. Included are the original cage, insert and basket plus 2 small pea baskets (which have seen better days but are still usable). The basket will also take RM90 trays inside it should you want to increase its capacity.
It's perfect for someone just starting to learn the trade or a hobbyist that completes one or two movement services a week. All that's needed are some cleaning and rinsing fluids for it to be up and running.
I'm looking for £175 collected from the West Midlands.
I could potentially post it at extra cost but it's quite heavy so I would imagine this would be quite pricey.
Here is a quick video of it in action...
Moebius 8000/4 natural oil £7 SOLD
I have no use for it as I work predominantly on modern watches which are designed to run with synthetic oils.
Cousins charge £11.95 + VAT for this.
Tag Heuer SEL Auto Chrono Dial £40 SOLD
Fits ETA Valjoux 7750
28mm in diameter
Raised and applied Tag Heuer logo
Damage to the lume at one o’clock and some spots in the paint next the nine o’clock subdial. There are also some marks on various parts of the dial some that look like they will clean off but I’m reluctant to attempt this. There is chip on the top of the chapter ring at twelve. Lume still glows apart from on the damaged marker.
Great for a 7750 project.
Heuer Trackmaster Stopwatch £80 SOLD
Plastic Gold Plated Case
1/10th second mechanical stopwatch movement
Individual start, stop and reset buttons
Dial in fantastic condition
Case showing some wear to plating in a few areas (mainly on the reverse)
Works perfectly with no known issues
I’ve not seen another gold plated version so this must be a fairly rare model.
Breitling Colt A57035 £525 SOLD
Breitling branded ETA 955.412 Quartz Movement
Breitling 18mm bracelet- A lot of these only come on a strap and these bracelets cost a fortune from Breitling!
No box/papers- Production of these was between 1995-2001.
I have fitted the following new genuine Breitling parts during my ownership- a new crown, new bezel spring/ratchet spring and a couple of new bracelet pins/tubes.
The watch is in lovely condition but please note the following- there are 2 scratches on the mineral crystal (never bothered me so I didn’t change it but a standard mineral crystal from cousins would suffice), the case has been lightly refurbed using a satin wheel so it appears sandblasted but on close inspection has a slight grain and the case back has a non original polished finish. The bracelet and clasp have the usual wear related marks but nothing that wouldn’t polish out.
Its a shame I can’t keep it but I don’t like to keep watches that I’m not wearing. Must be the cheapest way into Breitling ownership!
Tag Heuer 2000 WE1111-R £250 SOLD
Full size model with grey/silver dial. Movement dates it to 04/1994.
Dimensions approx- 10mm high, 41.6mm inc. crown, 20mm lugs, bezel width 37.5mm.
Full Service carried out by myself this week and new battery fitted. Running excellently as you would expect.
The condition is fantastic for a watch that is 18 years old, there are some scratches here and there on the case/bracelet but a light polish would remove them. The worst areas are the bezel tabs and the clasp, which has a number of desk diving marks. The left hand side of the case has a few of tiny sinks that aren’t noticeable on wrist but could be polished out. The sapphire glass appears to be unmarked. The dial has a few tiny age related marks but the lume glows and looks as new, out of all the 2000′s I’ve seen this one has the best condition dial/handset I have seen. I liked it in original condition so I decided not to refurb the case/bracelet.
Watch only. No box/papers.
Rolex Oyster 6480 £700 SOLD
Rolex manual wind calibre 1200. Serial 13xxxx which dates it to mid 1950′s I believe.
Case is approx 34mm without crown. 36mm with.
Recent service by Rolex accredited watchmaker (No paperwork/guarantee). Timekeeping is really good as shown in picture below.
New Rolex crystal and generic leather.
Case in good condition, could do with a light polish to make perfect. There are marks in the reverse of the lugs from the original bracelet end links.
Rolex signed crown. Steel batons/hands with a blued steel secondhand.
The dial has a few scratches running from the number 2 baton down to the 5 baton. They don’t detract too much at all but are noticeable.
Got to be one of the cheapest and nicest Rolex around.
Ladies Must de Cartier £450 SOLD
21- 123 000 P- The nicest two tone version IMHO without the gold chapter ring.
Case approx. 29/30mm without crown and 33mm with. Dial approx. 15mm.
Sapphire glass and swiss quartz movement.
Stainless steel and 18K gold plated accents on this ‘bullet’ link bracelet. Will fit approx a 7″ wrist.
18K GP cabochon set crown.
Condition wise, the watch looks fantastic, there are obviously scratches and scuffs that you find on most used watches around the case and on the bracelet but nothing that wouldn’t polish out. The bezel displays most of the wear, with a few scuffs and scratches, the worst being between the 11 and 12 numerals. No wear on any of the gold plate and I’m sure a light polish would get this looking almost new again.
Watch only, no box/papers.
