I've spent part of the evening grumbling at the iPhone's text autocorrect, which seems to forget two words for every new one learned, so that (I've highlighted it for clarity!) has just cheered me up no end :lol: :lol:

I must apologise, it certainly was not intentional. :o

I am a bit concerned where the auto correct picked up that word though.

It must be all the ornithological forums that I am also a member of! :lol:

Not AN Anium, just Anium.

Roman name of Agno, a town in the Ticino in Switzerland. Near Lake Lugano.

Looks the opposite to me. Very messy overlapping subdials and...what is wrong with the numerals at 12? :shock:

Plus, look at the printing of the numbers on the seconds dial. It bleeds all over the place. And the number alignment on the minute dial. Noooooo!

Apart from that it's wonderful! :lol:

Who the hell is Dan Henry? Where are the watches manufactured? I feel a bit queasy having looked at their website but it kind of reminds me of Avi-8 with a complete fake heritage and made somewhere in the far east. And sorry, but the watch above is far too messy for me.

Withdraw that comment sir! :)

His liking of the 16570 is probably the most sensible thing he has ever said!
