Re: A Trident in Thailand

Nice! Is that at the Serendipity resort? The Sunset resort was lovely for a couple of sunsets when we were there a couple of years back! (though Koh Lipe wasn't my favourite island)

Re: CWL of the day

Came in to work with one loved Kingfisher on and leaving with the one that arrived today from @Bahnstormer_vRS. Thanks again to Guy! This orange is as lovely in person as I'd always thought! Image

Re: Fulfilling a Lifelong Ambition.......

My thoughts in my head on reading your post Paul have ended up being exactly the same as Soporsche's - without the experience of building and driving my own kit car... :lol: I was thinking, get yourself a drive (or passenger seat) in a built up owners car and see which you prefer from inside as well...

Didn't see this earlier, but it looks like Akrone, a French microbrand, isn't on there:

Re: Fulfilling a Lifelong Ambition.......

LOL! If it helps (probably not) I have had 6 cars myself at one point - though they were very exceptional circumstances and only for a very short period (and one of them was a parts car for another). I know your feeling though. :) Having 1 car again is nice in some ways. And yes, their tendency to r...

Re: Fulfilling a Lifelong Ambition.......

Great news on the MOT pass! And the extra inspection sounds very promising...
Let us know if you decide to move it on! I keep toying with one of these as a next car. ;)
That aside though, I still feel that you should use this one as a donor; it'll make your life easier!

Re: C60 Franken . . . Mk II.

Maybe rather than buying a new watch I need to look into doing some modding of my own too! :D The bug is obviously starting to bite :) Yes, I have been thinking a lot about my next watch! https://www.christopherwardforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=53114 Do you just experiment with these yourself?

Congrats Kip! Having reached 12k myself on another forum I know full well how much effort it can take! :)
And as others have said, thanks for all the effort you put into keeping this place running!

Re: C60 Franken . . . Mk II.

As someone who has been wearing his Yellow Kingfisher almost daily for a few years now but has also been wishing recently that it was an automatic with a ceramic bezel... I love these! :+: Maybe rather than buying a new watch I need to look into doing some modding of my own too! :D

Re: Staring into the C60 Abyss

1.8mm strap bars are a pretty common size (I think it's what most dive watches use). You can also get the standard size spring bars (22mm) from WatchGecko as they link to those on the bracelet page: https://www.watchgecko.com/spring-bar-pins (you can normally get 6 for £3 in a few places elsewhere b...

Re: Learning to maintain a watch...

Thanks both for your answers! Location would probably help, wouldn't it?! I work down in Portsmouth and live just further up the A3. Unfortunately Epping and Bedford are quite a trip! I'm not wanting to learn so much to save on servicing costs but more out of my own interest. I like learning things ...
