Re: New pics of C65 SH21 LE Diver

Great Photo's, I would have one but funds don't allow (or Mrs Jimbo) The "proper" euro 7 is just another reason to want one.

A question to all.... does the power reserve ever go up to 5?

Re: The cult of Seiko

I was given a Seiko sports 100 as a watch for general wearing as a 15 year old. The watch was bomb proof as it later went through Commando training with me. Sadly I lost it in a great punch up outside Joanna's night club in Portsmouth. I was truly gutted. I even risked arrest going back to look for ...

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

Tigerchris..... i think you are making a mistake getting rid of your collection.

If you have a watch box it is rude to have space in it, so in effect you should have a watch box plus the one on your wrist.

Of your two watches I would have the Omega. The other one is pants :)

Re: W8 rest

Had a word with her "indoors" she says she will not wear it anymore as it's too big for her wrist, so will sell

(can't see why not.... she strangles pit bulls one handed)

Re: How many interviewers did they need!!

You're right "Interview" techniques have changed over the years. My father in law who was a police officer in the 60's/70's/ 80's before PACE came along said they once had an old DC come into the cell block when my father in law had just caught a burglar red handed, and punched him in the sternum, a...

W8 rest

Hi all, My wife's W8 chrono hand will not reset to 12 o'clock position. It just shudders and then stops. The second hand still goes around, and is keeping reasonable time. She has not worn it for some 3-5 years, and has told me to dispose of it as "unwanted". Shame really as looks nice on a female. ...
