Re: Impulse Buys - Watches preferably, but not exclusively

I bought this while killing time in Zurich airport back in 2014... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200526/b07bdc4512f14eb80ace38575ba86e75.jpg It was all a bit surreal and I had a bit of panic on the flight home. However, I’ve still got the watch and I’ve still got the same wife, so I reckon I go...

Re: “You and Your Watches” - 10 questions

1. How did you become interested in watches, and when? I was always interested, having worn them throughout my childhood. When I left school at 16, one of the first things I spent wages on was a 'decent' watch (the first thing I bought was a motorcycle crash helmet). It was mid-late 1970's and it wa...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Had this on since I got home. It’s just returned from a four/five week holiday in the fatherland. I read that Sinn were turning things round quick recently and although it was still running, a bubble had formed and it is over six years since Downer decided to part with it. Despite a worrying few da...

Re: C65 Trident Bronze Ombré

You can check resale and pricing information on both models in the CWArchives . As to the C65 Bronze Ombre ever having been available Nearly New? No recollection of that, but its possible it may have been. Why not put a Want To Buy in the Sales Corner? Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk Thank...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

I'm fairly sure it is from that steeped rear end but the rest isn't much below. May I be forward and ask your inside leg measurement. scooter Well after knowing each other for a decade or so, I guess I’m ok with it. I’m around 32”. However, I think quite a lot of this depends on the width and shape...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

^^^ I wonder if they are measuring to the top of the raised rear part of the seat - rather than the bit you actually sit on?

My GS is 870mm (at the seat) and I wouldn't want anything taller.

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

That electric motorcycle is very interesting, scooter. It seems to offer everything and even the range is acceptable (provided it's realistic). The only thing that would give me some concern is the seat height... https://www.horwin.eu/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Horwin_CR6_26.png Seems awful tall for...
