Congratulations. The best implementation of GMT - in my unbiased opinion. :D

Re: Sales Corner

I have no factual measure, but my perception is that the number and quality of listings has not dramatically altered one way or the other, and since the 50 post restriction is only intended to act as an additional layer of security, we can be thankful that (afaik) we have not experienced any problem...

Re: New arrival - I spy a Bremont

^^ That's exactly what I found with the Temple Island - a bit clammy and a bit too stiff. It will be interesting to see if it improves with time - as I never persevered for long enough to find out.

Re: Today's Showroom Visit

I'm also really keen to see the pepsi as I'm hoping it will calm my desire for a Tudor Black Bay GMT! Not wanting to be negative here but, speaking from experience, this rarely works. If you really want the Tudor, my advise would be to wait until you can get one/afford one. If not, every time you l...

Green grass! Egad! We have about 50 cm of snow where I live!
50cm of snow is unimaginable! It was about 9c and fairly breezy today, but I enjoyed a couple of hours on the bike - even if it is now filthy. Again.

Re: New arrival - I spy a Bremont

Tried the solo, tried the U2 and tried the MB. Didn't click with any of them. Too much fuss about not very much imo. This one looks no different, apart from the monster ugly day/date window. Sorry to be the dissenter but I can't get excited about them. Maybe I'll give the 40mm Supermarine a go one ...

Of all the watches/brands that have been through my hands (about 90) in the last 10 years, I have to admit it is Bremont that has cost me the most in term...
