Re: New Atoll Special Edition

Yep, looks like they're gone. Drat - I've posted a few times about my wish for a more colourful Trident to use as a daily in place of my Kingfishers but it pops up and I'm in the sticks!

Re: A bit of a try on…

The above is taken from your OP, Neil. So what is it exactly you do like about this watch, it seems to have a few strikes against it. :lol: Quite! :lol: I can concur on the ATs though - they're lovely watches to see in real life and very comfortable to wear. Judging by your past SOTCs they would pr...

Re: I don’t know how you do it?

We pay someone (less than I think we should but he won't accept any more as most the street pays him the same) to cut and maintain our small (compact car sized) front lawn. We have a slightly larger garden at the back all lawn except for some paving. A few years ago when we were living here (we're r...

Re: C60 Elite Rubber Strap Advice ?

A black/blue/gunmetal strap just came in the post. Here's a second pic of both together, with the reverse side of the short part. I opened the blinds and the camel colour is closer on pic 2 IMG_20220630_095541306~2.jpg Thanks for those! I ordered exactly the same (though steel buckle rather than gu...

Re: Bespoke C63 Colchester possible / interest

I like the idea for the same reasons. I quite like the watch but with no association to the parachute regiment it would feel a bit weird to own or wear one of the originals. I won’t commit at this stage, but pending final design and pricing decisions I’d be interested. This is my sentiment too - an...

Re: Tissot PRX Quartz

Yeah, I like these too and keep considering one as an everyday/dressier watch than my dive watches which seem to be the bulk of my collection (with chronos making up the rest!). I have tried them on and they're a lovely fit even though 42mm is my usual sweet spot. But I can't choose between the PRX ...

Re: Recommendations from the amateur photographers

Ideally it also needs some kind of remote trigger (Sony cameras can do this with an app which is nice but I have tended to use Intervalerometers generally which have more reliability and flexibility) but self-timer works fine for many macro shots. I have generally found self-timer requires too much ...

Re: Recommendations from the amateur photographers

That could be fun! I love a 50mm focal length personally but the 35mm is very versatile an option. :+:

Re: Recommendations from the amateur photographers

I was going to write a long winded post but don't have time. ;) What I will say is I've travelled a lot and pretty much always without a telephoto as it's the first thing to get removed from my backpack (how I usually travel including to live overseas for almost a year). There have been times I've m...

Re: Can you help with some research, please?

1. Yes, lots. Last year of primary and in history in a couple of years in secondary school. Though I went to school in the Middle East, so that may not be of help. 2. No; that was before my time. I have, however, seen a similar Tutankhamun exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in more recent years. 3. I...

Thanks for the photos! That second photo is one CW should be using! It shows off the dial so much better than any of their images!

Re: Fake Hamiltons are out there..Beware!!..

Over here - as far as I know - selling a fake knowingly is looked upon very badly and there could be further consequences for the seller especially if they do this a lot. Admittedly it's easy enough to just create a new eBay account I guess, but personally I'd flag this with eBay so they can do some...
