True racer, smooth but ruthlessly quick, an all round gent and - as the obit fails to mention - also the founder of Duke Video, which brought motorcycle sport to the VHS generation of the 1980s, when few other broadcasters or media companies could be bothered.

Motorcycle racer who dominated the sport in the early 1950s and became the first to don a leather one-piece

Let me get this straight; millions in diamonds, gold, cash, watches etc was all left in safety deposit boxes, with an alarm system that DIDN'T send a code to keyholders, the local Police station and the building owners?

Nobody heard/saw the robbers bringing in heavy equipment, using the lift shaft to drop power tools into the basement, then merrily drill and cut through walls either?

All sounds like a Hollywood heist movie and like many movies, this story requires the viewer to suspend all disbelief. Amazeballs

Near mint Orient auto just in - tags, box, papers, seals on the strap clasp and see-through caseback. Minter, with a dash of Seiko in its DNA. Lovely smooth second hand sweep...

This is our first clock resto project. Once proudly hanging outside Warrington trading standards offices, it's going to sit inside the new market hall when the four year town centre redevelopment is complete. At least that gives me plenty of time to learn how this amazing chunk of history works... :)

Just got a wonderful 1950s Ingersoll bedside alarm clock in the shop. Original box and the shop receipt/guarantee as well. True Antiques Roadshow stuff.. it even works well - alarm sounds like the hammers of Hell in your earhole ;-)

Always interested in buying a classic wristwatch, if you have a nice Omega, Tissot, Rotary, or maybe a Seiko or Orient automatic, then I will have a look at it anytime. DM me ;-)

Engineering genius or something that looks like a gas cooker hob on your wrist? What's your take on the Urwerk watch?
 
Nice pic of the new UR-1001 "TITAN" by our Singapore retailer The Hour Glass.

Sold this Uno Swiss automatic today, just hours after I took a few photos of its inner workings.

Uno weren't a big name brand, but I love the jewelled gear cogs resting under the rotor on this watch. So solid, so precise, like cam gear work from a Honda VFR750. For a 40-ish year old watch it kept accurate time too.

Can you ask for more if you're collecting classic watches priced under £50? Probably not. The bloke got a bargain today ;-)

Said it before, will keep saying it - gold is being held down in terms of global $/oz pricing, and this interesting blog post highlights one reason why the price may spike later this year.

Fascinating that nations keep asking for their gold bullion back, but they ain't getting it shipped over...mysterious eh?
By lending out their stocks of physical gold, central banks may be committing the perfect crime, says Bengt Saelensminde.

Very proud to be a stockist of Seiko wall, travel and carriage clocks. Our little jewellers shop is punching above its weight.
