Re: Going for green: Mühle Glashütte Panova Grün

No, not really. Just came across it today, and it is increasingly rare that I come across something that ticks most of my boxes. Mühle did a great job with this IMO. Green is not something I would consider for a daily wear. A fun summer watch on the other hand - I could see myself with this one. Not...

I like it. 40mm, 10.4mm thick, 100m WR, SW200 movement. About €900.

That’s a great result scooter; something of a victory over the replace rather than fix mentality that permeates far too many places and things.
I second that. It is really a disgrace that this minor problem couldn’t be sorted by an AD. Well done Scooter. :clap:

Re: Non CW of the Day

This seems to me a perfect watch for autumn, especially with the Casa Faglianoesqe strap.

Re: Wall Art for the Watch Obsessed

You could buy wall art, or if you’re lucky like me, your daughter could draw a picture of your favourite watch as a gift. :D 5215D91C-9369-41C0-8B99-806226E9E748.jpeg That’s wonderful! Much better decor than a print of a movement. Thanks Andrew. Maybe she’ll do commisions? Joking, of course.

Re: “Yes, Minister” - Fantasy vintage watch picker

Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister are brilliant, and firm favourites of mine. Like Steve I have the DVD sets, and return to them regularly. Sure, it is comedy but also very true in its essence. I can’t improve on Steve’s choices. They are spot on. There are some actual movie watch choices that are...

Re: Wall Art for the Watch Obsessed

More bragging, my avatar is this watch related art work that my other daughter created as part of her studies and later gave to me.

A colleague sent this round this morning. For anyone else dealing with young people (or not so young, as well) who may be experiencing anxieties about the New Normal, I thought this was very powerful. So I will share it:

Powerful and very, very true.
