  1. My Time

    My Time

    £10.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    This 'product' is for exactly as it says, you are purchasing my time or slots of time to do your work.

    In the past I have been too generous with my time doing one off jobs and not charging for the time its taken. I have even been known to do jobs for free ! I enjoy doing favours and one offs for people but its just not good business sense for me to do stuff for free ! For example, some time ago I made some clock stands which I have to design and CAD draw from scratch, this turned out to be a 2 and 1/2 to 3 hour job of which I just charged £12 of the normal clock stand ! Ive done other jobs too, repair work, engravings etc and barely charged, so this year Im determined to get a grip on of the situation!   Not only am I under selling myself, time taken has a knock on effect with all other jobs I need to do that comes through the books. I hope this makes sense and you understand my action taken to address this. 

    So from now on any 'off piste' jobs that require me to down tools and work solely on your project will incur the My Time fee.

    Time is broken down in to half hour slots of 10 GBP each, making my hourly rate just 20 GBP.  

    My Time is charged for time. It does not include materials or shipping, these are additional costs to be added to the total.

    What would you use this for ? Well, for example you may want a watch stand making and engraving similar to my LE Speedy stands. You may want me to design a strap for you that doesn't already exist or you may want a wall plaque manufactured. Maybe you want an aircraft clock stand making or a bespoke mouse mat, or even engraved brass plaques for your door or desk. These are all things I have custom made for people in the past and barely charged !!

    If you want to use this service then the first thing to do is to contact me with your requirements. I will assess the job and give you a quote. I will never over quote for a job and if I find the job takes longer than expected then I will not charge for the extra time its taken. You will never pay more than the initial quote.

    Q) what can I use this service for?

    A) Anything that you think I can make for you. A quick look on my website here, 6B watches.com and on my instagram feed will give you an idea of my work.  In my inventory I have a laser cutter/engraver, lathe, milling machine, usual hand tools, a vinyl cutter etc as well as a dedicated engraving machine. I can work with wood, laminates, plastics, aluminium and brass, nylons and leather and do lathe and milling work within the capacity of my machine.

    Q) How do you take payment for one offs?

    A) An initial quote is given and if you accept you will then pay half up front using this page. On completion of the job images will be sent to you and if you are happy then second half of My Time is to be payed before the job ships.  If you dont like the finshed job or you simply change your mind then the initial half payment is not refundable.

  2. ROCKET

    ROCKET

    £75.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    SOLD OUT

    ROCKET 

    Some time ago I made a proto version of ROCKET and posted it on my instagram feed. It gained a lot of interest and thoughts turned to producing more of these cool desk top ornaments. 

    From that initial proto discussions then started about making a small run of these. The proto was made on my manual lathe and milling machine and I could carry on doing this. However, this method is very labour intensive and with all the best will in the world it would be hard for me to get every single one exactly the same !

    So I have had some CAD drawings and renders made and from there have taken my design  and found a machine shop willing to part make these in small numbers. 

    ROCKET is manufactured from solid aluminium and stands 145mm high. It will come to you boxed as shown. Its not based on any rocket design in particular, I just wanted a retro look and feel, hopefully I have achieved this. 

    Please look at the images I have supplied here, I think you will agree that it looks ever so cool and of course, GGB unique !

    YOU ARE BUYING A BATCH 2 ROCKET - SMALL LEAD TIME OF AROUND 2 WEEKS 

    Remember, this is all my own work and all made in the United Kingdom 

    Q) What is ROCKET ?

    A) Good question. Id just say its a super cool desk top ornament or metal art. It could be a paperweight in your office or imagine it as a bonnet ornament for your classic car :-) 

    ~

    Q) What does it do

    A) Sits on your desk looking super cool.

    ~

    Q) Its a lot of money, isn't it?

    A ) Not really. I've built it from proto to finished product. Its a unique product and in small numbers. You're paying for CAD drawing, CNC work, fees I incur from my payment gateways, tax mans cut, oh, and after all that I have to make a few quid. Price is based on all these factors. 

    ~

    Q) How many are you making 

    A) I would love to sell a 1000 :-) However, I would imagine initial batches of 10 and see how they go. 

    ~

    Q) What surface finish will ROCKET have ?

    A) As shown

    ~

    Q) Whats the lead time ?

    A) Batch 2 - around 2 weeks from 28th 02 19 

    ~

    Q) Where is ROCKET made?

    A) ROCKET is designed and manufactured here in Great Britain. 

    ~

    Q) Do you make them ?

    A) ROCKET body and fins are CNC made. They will come to me in rough format which I then do some post proccess work like polish and grain and box work.

  3. Spitfire ~ NEW PRODUCT

    Spitfire ~ NEW PRODUCT

    £65.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    Your new favourite strap ? Possibly, it certainly is mine !

    I have come up with this completely new design for a great GGB strap which I am proud to show you!

    Designed and manufactured from the ground up, this strap features UK produced webbing and hardware (which is unique to GGB) making it, I am proud to say, a 100% British made product. 

    Features:

    A Tri slot main buckle (engravable as like the Hop-Up buckles) and a smaller Tri loop allowing the straps length to be adjusted for changes in wrist size but also changing from one watch to another as this strap allows you to adjust for different lug to lugs easily. The strap is still made to your wrist size but now with extra flex built in it could potentially be adjusted for over a wet or flight suit or ski jacket for example. Both Tri buckle and Tri loop have a curve in them to follow the curve of your wrist. 

    The touch and close is changed to a lower profile product than standard velcro and once attached to the wrist the metal loop slides over the tail end to securely hold it down. As with most GGB straps, your watch is attached between two keepers and sits on a single ply of nylown webbing. This means that in the event of one spring bar failing the watch head will still be attached to the stap and not lost. 

    I am really chuffed to bits with this strap and have high hopes for it doing well. It looks the business in my opinion with its multiple piece unique hardware and is going to suit many tool watches. Hopefully one of yours too :-)  

    I would certainly recommend thinking of this strap for wrists of around 7 inches and above. I can make to smaller wrist sizes, however you may lose the adjust-ability the smaller your wrist.  Spitfire is only available in black. 

    Engraving as shown here is an example. There are many options in the Hop-Up gallery, If you would like one of those designs then let me know in the dropdown.  If you have your own idea for design or text then please ask prior to purchase so I can double check I can engrave it on the buckle. 

    Pre designed buckle choices HERE   Note : designs in gallery are engraved on differant buckle but will fit the Tri slot

  4. Vintage rally timer by GasGasBones

    Vintage Rally Timer

    £380.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    If you wish to purchase one of these units while GGB is closed for catch up, please email 

    gasgasbones1@gmail.com

    subject Rally Timer

    Here we have a beautiful piece I just created and am very proud to show you. With this unit, I was aiming for the vintage /steampunk look and I think I have met both styles half way. I hope you agree, it looks pretty darn cool !!

    Constructed of aluminium, brass and steel throughout. The unit measures - Base plate dims L140mm/5.5 inches x W80mm/3 1/4 inches with actuating arm W113mm/4.5inches

    The timers are designed to be actuated either at the same time, by pressing the centre T bar or independently of one another.

    The clock, if desired can be fixed to your car by either using the corner screws or there is a a hole behind each timer with which a screw can pass. If you wish to display the timer on a desk then it simply rests on the stand I have made for it and is included.

    I sell this unit complete with two vintage stopwatches. However, should you wish to fit your own then I have designed adjustability into the unit. You will see that the two lower bobbins for each clock are fitted in a slot. The screw at the rear can be loosened making the fitting of larger or smaller diameter timers easy. The press buttons running through the T bar are threaded so you would unscrew or screw in to balance out the buttons to just make contact with the new clock winder. You could even fit a pocket watch to this unit, though then of course the chosen sides actuator will not operate as such. however the other side will still be operable.

    Units are engraved with my CED logo ( Carl Evans Design ) and each unit is individually numbered. The unit comes in its own custom box .

    Designed and made at GGB HQ in the United Kingdom, this rally timer is completely unique and original in every way. You will not find anything like it !

    Thank you. I truly hope you like RT1

    IMPORTANT NOTES

    The timers supplied with RT1 are of vintage. At time of shipping each timer will be working of course. However, I do not provide any warranty on the timers. They are sourced from different places and I do not know their service history.

    Fitting to a vehicle - I have no control over how you fit this unit to a vehicle. I have provided two methods of fitting to a car. With corner bolts or with just two screws that run through the base plate behind the timers. You will need to figure out the best method for your application. This timer is in no way meant to be classed as a serious timer for rallies etc. It is more a working show piece to fit in either your classic or sit on your desk.

    The timers you recieve will not be exactly as shown here ( these are mine )  I will always aim to fit British made Smiths timers however due to diiffering designs of Smiths stopwatches over the years they may come to you slighlty differant to as shown.

    SPV4 ~Earth bound NASA strap

    £28.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    The main body of this strap is made from 25mm loop Velcro. On top of that is sewn either 20 or 22mm nylon keeper tabs for the black but is only available for 20mm lug widths in the Tan and green.  The end of the strap is squared off by folding over the Velcro so that the fold is visible as worn.

    This strap is a scaled down version of the NASA blueprint strap V207 but with a rectangular loop instead of the D. If you dig the NASA look but don't have the space suit to go with a V207 then this strap is the perfect solution.

    Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap.

  15. Identity buckle for NATO G10s

    Identity buckle for NATO G10s

    £18.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    Strap identity buckle. REVAMPED with new, dedicated buckles. Smaller, sleeker, sexier :-) 

    These have proved very popular so I have given them their own dedicated buckles that fit 20 and 22mm NATO G10s perfectly 

    Designed and conceived to be use with NATO G10 straps the identity buckle fits standard G10 straps of 20 and 22mm. Perfect as supplementary Identity for Military, fire service, pilots, Po-Po etc

    Design here can be re-jigged a little but I only have limited space, character count is around 10 to 12 depending on letters used. Please enquire before any special request. Once confirmed put in your special request in the box below and If I have any problems I will let you know and we can work something out.

    Buckle simply threads through as shown in pics and locks in place. This buckle will also fit nylon and leather NATOs from other manufacturers.

    From time to time I may ask permission to take some snaps for social etc. It goes without saying that any private information engraved on these buckles WILL NOT be photographed and posted on social media etc.

    The mid size BRV in the range is this 30mm wide strap and available for 20 and 22mm lug widths. Personally I would recommend that you order this strap for 22mm lug widths as the 20mm can look a bit narrow. Visually the same as the other two BRV straps it has a slightly different webbing with a larger looser weave. Like the other two in the range, the 30mm wide pad can have the option of a coloured border stitch sewn in to match colour detail in your watch. The BRV2 comes in black only. Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap. Learn More
  19. BRV3

    BRV3

    £27.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    Visually the same as the other two in the range, the BRV3 is only available for 20mm lug widths.The keeper webbing sits on the pad which is 25mm wide. Coloured border is an option and the strap is fitted with the standard loop. Four core colours here ( Black, Tan, NATO Green and Light Olive) are supplied from MOD contract suppliers and is mil spec - mil issue. The webbing here are used to make the UKs military PLCE ( Personal Load Carrying Equipment) I particularly like the look of the Light Olive and for extra geek points the Light Olive is infrared reflective. Now I don't know about you buy I find this feature extremely handy as I know my watch strap wont give my position away to the baddies (Wife) when im in the garden or fixing the car etc :-) Tons of colour options here so plenty for everyone. The Light Olive webbing looks equally good with green or the Tan stitch but is separate from the border stitch option. Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap. Learn More
  20. Aquatimer

    Aquatimer

    £17.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    No need to pay IWC prices for that replacement Aquatimer strap, the GGB Aquatimer is pretty much exactly the same and I would dare to say better made! It will of course suit many dive watches as well as other none dive tool watches. Simply attach one end via the spring bar and thread the loose end through the other end, around and attach. Available in 20,22,24mm widths and in any length for possible use over dive suit etc. Important note : If you select 24mm I will actually use 25mm, this is because 24mm is a none standard size from my suppliers. (and also hard to find consistently anywhere else) Customers note that they have no problem squishing the 25mm into 24mm but I will happily refund anyone that is not happy with the fit once tried on the watch. You will need to make sure there is a couple of MM gap between the watch case and the spring bar or tube. Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap. IMPORTANT : I can only make a 22mm version in black Learn More
