£8,000ish like it? And as a boutique model, no discount if bought new.

You guys can keep your Speedmasters, I want a Sinn 103 again :lol:

The left sleeve really looks like a Timex datalink to me.

My visit to SalonQP determined that I like the twin crown style of the Bremont MBii and U22 but, in all reality, I'm unlikely to be buying one anytime soon.

So my thoughts have drifted back to a favourite of mine in the form of the Elliot Brown Canford, in particular their Clipper Round the World Clipper LE ###/1,000.

Got a new Elliot Brown Bloxworth turning up this week - insanely excited for a quartz movement watch - which is very unusual for me as I am a clockwork man through and through.

I think it is the confidence wearing such an indestructible lump gives me - wearing an Elliot Brown - its a bit like driving a Volvo - not a modern one but a 240 or a 940 maybe - the feeling of indestructibility it gives you! :D

My visit to Elliot Brown keeps being postponed but with luck it should happen during the next two weeks. I'm really looking forward to it.

And photos will follow - Alex has given me permission to take snaps on the day :)
I am not a collector of watches. I used to be able to say that and know I was telling the truth.
