Re: Best way to start a collection

Question on the Moonglow - do you need to store it on a watch winder to keep the moon phase correct when not being worn? That might be a really daft newbie question, but I assume it would be difficult to set the moon phase yourself if the watch is left wound down for an extended period? :? It's eas...

Re: Best way to start a collection

I couldn’t handle a one-brand watchbox. I need variety. :D I've got 6 CWs, the only repeated feature is the hands on the oldest two though one has steel the other rose gold plated. Different cases, different dial colours, different sizes and one's even square - and my collection still has nothing w...

Re: Martu Black Friday time

you can opt for two shipping options for Martu straps - free snail mail, or express courier service that costs about £60! I would never choose express shipping on a handmade item which isn't expected to be ready for weeks as whether it does or not it feels like pressuring the maker which seems rude...

Re: Martu Black Friday time

I’d bet my watch fund ( :lol: ) that anything is going to look good on this watch. :thumbup: I don't think the blue and orange hybrid would look great, I find bright white looks a bit clean for a canvas strap too. Other than that you're probably right :thumbup: How long are you expecting to wait fo...

Re: Still my favourite flieger - Typhoon c1000

There was a Fleiger shaped hole in my collection so I bought one of these - not sure it's right to call it a favourite with no comparison made but I love it. The only "problem" is my unwillingness to put it on a black strap, it looks great on a bright yellow perlon but it's getting grubby ...

Re: Let's hear it for the Royal Mail/Parcel Force

It's a strike, the inconvenience is surely the point. It is, but knowing there's a strike and backlog why are they still advertising/selling guaranteed time-frame deliveries they know they can't achieve? Living very near the sorting office Royal Mail has always treated me well - second class and tr...

Re: Calling All Members - Guess Who I Am

^ I would be shocked if I could identify anyone (except perhaps missF) from their whole entry in this, how can people do it from just a few words?! Amazing :clap:

Re: FLE 2023 Launch Announcement

They will make more. We are currently at 31 reserved numbers via Kip's thread! :thumbup: :clap: Congratulations! I suspect there are many more reservations than that, not everyone will have wanted a specific number below 30 let alone one that was still available. I wonder how many chose to have a m...

Re: FLE 2023 Launch Announcement

^^^ That's high praise :thumbup: It's true though, the Bronze and Lucerne are plain dials with one colour font and plain hands and I'd messed up the white by using the 36mm making that the same. The pop of colour on the standard black and white versions make them more interesting but even if they w...

Re: FLE 2023 Launch Announcement

Interesting! The black dial looks bigger to me. +1 Replacing the dials with orange and pasting in the FLE dial reveals that the black dial is indeed the biggest, it's not even close. Good eyes gents :thumbup: Sealanders2.jpg The bezel will be the same size as the standard C63 39mm. Any differences ...

Re: Calling All Members - A Chance to Get To Know Each Other

These are surprisingly short, not sure if that makes it easier or harder to write one. I'll have a go!

Is the FLE's bezel thinner too? Maybe my eyes are broken :lol:
