New acquisition, from your visit yesterday, or from deep in the watchbox?

Another watch box dig out Guy.

Yesterday was about sorting a minor issue with my new Americas cup Watch chronometer Certificate, having a general mooch around, and getting a couple of replacement straps.

The HQ is always a lovely place to visit. Seeing all the watch people assembling, servicing and creating the watches is always wonderful to see, and well worth a visit.

I must do it at CW as well.

Hi Bernie, Really happy with the timekeeping on the whole.

Whilst I don't keep a precise record, it gains a bit approx <10 sec per day.

However, you have prompted me to do a definite check so, being the 1st, I'll set it and check in a week's time.

So just an excuse to check them over.

Rather than going to CW Towers, an easier trip for you will be to Page and Cooper.

I'm popping in next week to have a mooch and hoping to get some details of the new Elliot Brown Tyneham, due for release imminently.

Thinking also doing a further consolidation of 3 or 4 into one for a purchase £1,250 - £1,700 (ish). Don't suppose I'd get a pre-loved Bremont for that, would I?

Yes, in-house movement with polysilicone main spring. Can't remember the number.

Very simply and tastefully decorated it is too.

I believe that Guy has indeed gone for the full fat in-house movement.

Indeed.

I do think that Guys Damasko could be the perfect 1 watch!!

I must have a look-see one of these days.

I agree Nick , very nice . They seem to be very reasonably priced too for the spec.
