Finished replacing a u-joint in the front axel on my old Dodge pickup today.

New brake pads, tire rotation, and a quick drive to town just to see if it all held together. :D
The Zenith held together just fine.

Wearing the 1928 Rolex 912 'Tank' as it is in the family from new so is the perfect choice.

I am still wearing this one a lot of the time. An ideal watch for a medium sized wrist, on a medium sized body frame.

@nbg I guess you’d call it a very average watch then, Neil. 😉

^^^ Yep very average Des. Far more average than any of the more shiny loud watches that I own. :)

I keep thinking that I am maybe missing a trick. If I took action to increase my wrist size by eating more pies, I could perhaps wear a greater selection of large brightly coloured watches. :)

Don’t worry Neil, I’ve tried eating the pies on your behalf and can confirm it’s will still be your best option.

The dial was a bit boring, so my 3yr old daughter gave it a much needed upgrade.
