I haven't been for a couple of years, but last time I went there were a couple of stalls selling nice vintage watches, including the guy who specialises in WW2 German (and one, not so nice, stall selling very dodgy "rolexes")
Fake Rolex guy was still there, has moved onto fake comex and milsubs now, kinda cool in a naff way that people fake those. Vostok guy wanted 60 quid for his amphibia, i told him to stop having a giraffe. i won't be going again unless its moved back to paddock wood.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

I love that Oris, in the flesh it's one of the most legible watches I've seen.

My sterile B-Uhr 47 today, complete with new CWL C15 brown croc grain strap & brushed butterfly clasp picked up for £10 in the recent sale.

They go together better than I thought they would and look great for the office.

Got to properly unbox my Steinhart Ocean One (Green) today. Managed to take a few more pictures of it.

Jealous! I'm on the fence on wether to get one or not.
I reeeealy want the 50th anni Rolex on which this steinhart is based but it will be a few years before I can afford one!
How does it wear with regards to the straight lugs?
Any wrist shots?

I've seen a "Froggy" in a London Jewellers window and think its the best looking version.I only have a 6 1/2 inch wrist but its fairly flat, not round. I've taken five full links out of the bracelet. A good range of micro adjustment make for a very comfortable and snug fit with no sliding about. Its got some weight to it also. :thumbup:

Thanks. I am really tempted by one but don't want to feel like I'm wearing a wannabe which it sort of is as its pretty much identical. I don't know... Lol
Did you get it direct from steinhart?

It does seem to be unusual verging on the unique - I can't even find reference to another, and nor could Mathey Tissot! The closest I have come was a similarly marked one but of a different design that showed up last week on eBay... and I bought it :-)

Either it is fixable - which is good - or more likely I will end up with spares for my original - also good.

Some discussion of it here;
