Omega looks good on you and is certainly not my type.

There, decision made. :thumbup:

They weren't such a bad fit as they look in the photos; usual issue with the angle the pic is taken at making them look larger - but yes I agree both are too big.

Lug to lug on both is 50mm and I always think that Bremont wear smaller than other 43mm case watches because of the curved down lugs. Even though the Bremont chronos do look too big on me the MBII which is thinner and with a flatter case back does fit ok.

The Bremont in the pic is basically the tool watch version of the more dressy polished case one that Nick has.

On the basis that the Bremonts you tried on at SPQ were an ok size for you I reckon the Tyneham will be as well. :thumbup:

Thanks for the vote of confidence Neil.

My Damasko is 42mm with c.50mm lug2lug, the Tyneham is 41mm. I agree I should be OK.

Trying to decide if I've got enough I could sell to slim the collection down and add one of these

The one that not many folks like.....

But for me - simple, very easy to read colours, and yeah, I do like the orange.

The white one is actually starting to grow on me and would be my choice for a Milly these days.

Don't worry Dave - no plans to sell or buy another watch in the foreseeable. I am "happy" where I am. After a purchase I always question the collection - I've done that after my recent Farer additions - all 7 are safe (I did have a couple of wobbles this last week or so but all sorted now)

Now don't forget Mark if you ever get fed up of the DJ I will take it off your hands. :)

Never happening - best watch I have owned or will own. I could quite happily sell the rest and just wear it on it's own. :thumbup:

Mark I did think you would say that. For me it is the perfect DJ configuration as well. I will have to borrow my wife's, albeit it's the all steel smooth bezel version. :)

A watch to grow old with, much like my 36mm Explorer.
