Rated 5 out of 5Â by Seele Simple elegance at a sensible price
Having sold watches since 1966, Sekonda UK has many very popular models over the years, most of them sourced from the then Soviet Union. Updated reissues of many of the best designs have been released, and this is one of them, the original was one built by Poljot 1MWF, and sold in the 80s until the mid 90s.
This current model distinguishes itself by adding a modern flavour to the classic design: it is bigger for both legibility and the modern taste, and the black second hand in the original has been replaced by a gold one to match the hour and minute hands. The in-house quartz movement in the original has, of course, been replaced by a tried-and-tested Miyota of remarkable reliability, and that makes it a very easy watch to get on with. For the modest price, this is a fine watch that looks many times more expensive. Recommended!
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Legislation
From 1st July 2007, all retailers of electrical goods must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation.
This is a scheme to prevent all such waste being disposed of in general landfill sites and to promote recycling of components and materials. The legislation aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by creating products with recycling in mind and encouraging reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE.
How do I know what product is "WEEE"? The definition of a WEEE product is one whose primary function is dependent on electrical currents to carry out the main function, e.g. a toaster. However, some product, such as a child’s soft toy with an electric circuit, is not classed as WEEE as its primary function is a toy. For further details on product definitions, please click here.
You may also take the item(s) to your local authority Civic Amenity Site if this is more convenient.
