Re: Time to retire from the game?

I reckon we are on the same page, Neil - give or take. I've been wearing a few of my "better" watches recently, and I'm pretty sure I have everything I need, and a few I could live without.

Re: Watch winder or no watch winder ?

If I owned a moonphase watch I’d definitely have a winder for it. When I was working I had all twelve of my auto watches on winders, and for me it worked out well, as I changed watches almost daily. These days my wearing habits have changed and I no longer need winders, although I’m sometimes tempte...

Washing the car? Or wearing the Bremont?

I can understand not washing the car......
The watch gets worn quite a bit. If there was a help line for neglected cars, Mr Volvo would be making a call. :)

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

Full of admiration for what you and your fellow blood bikers do. I'm still waiting for the weather to change to enable me to go out on a few adventures. scooter Aye, there’s no doubt that biking is more enjoyable in decent weather, although yesterday wasn’t too bad and it was good to get out having...

Re: Ceramic dials...

Thanks guys. I didn't realise the current PO and SM300 had ceramic dials. I suppose it's an obvious progression really. @Neil, as for he BP Bathyscaphe, that's a watch I've always admired and actually tried a couple of times back when I was up for that sort of outlay. I never realised it was a ceram...

Ceramic dials...

Every time I wear my Planet Ocean Liquidmetal I am struck by 3 things: 1. It's a heavy old beast. 2. The lume is incredible. 3. The dial clarity is (in my experience) unsurpassed. I attribute the clarity to the fact the watch has a polished ceramic dial and double-sided AR coating - see spec below: ...
