I can't wait to get back out again after my hernia operation on the 6th September has settled down.

I hope your recovery goes well, scooter, and that you're soon back on your bikes. Today's views were life-affirming.

Re: Help me Remove a Rubber Strap

Can I see holes in the lugs (at the sides)?

Re: Third Time Lucky?

This happened to me with my first IWC. Having lost faith in the watch (after numerous issues) I sold it and bought another IWC.
The replacement has been perfect.

Sometimes, you get a lemon. I’d be offloading it asap.

CORRECTION: It was Frankfurt I flew into that was horrible, not Hamburg.
Amazing fact about Frankfurt airport… with more than 80,000 employees it is Germany’s largest employment site.

Re: Sell me on a travel destination

If you are looking for somewhere a bit cooler (in the weather sense), I can thoroughly recommend Switzerland or Austria in the summer, but it also depends what you are looking for. The scenery is amazing and off the beaten track, the local culture remains intact.

Since I retired I have found my watch-wearing habits have changed considerably - in that I now often wear the same watch for weeks on end, and the allure of the watch box has reduced significantly. My interest in new models and the latest and grea...

Re: Archive feature suggestion

I’d be willing to help however I can to track data down. CW may have a list of what watches use which bracelets. Thanks. We have started the data collection and added the feature to the archive. It's all still in a 'prototype' state, but we will work on it (slowly as we all have other stuff to do)....
