Re: “You and Your Watches” - 10 questions

Wis 1. How did you become interested in watches, and when? I guess I was about 10 when an old ladies pocket watch my grandmother had caught my keen interest. It seemed to the young me a thing of rare beauty. She gave it to me not long after I expressed an interest in it. I still have it. 2. How did ...

Re: Have I “Finally” Cracked the Perfect Trio?

A superb trio indeed Steve, and one that covers all ‘needs’. I have come to realize that what I really like are watches with a strong ‘personality’ and striking yet simple design, and it seems you do too.

I really can’t see how you could tire of that trio!

Re: “ISH” Time returns: the Meistersinger Metris

That looks the business! Just the right amount of quirkiness. The case shape is so much more interesting than the regular, round type. Congratulations. I predict lots of enjoyment with ish-time, and maybe occasionally some frustration when you need to know the time to catch a bus.

I quite like the Westminster Abbey! But I could see the novelty wearing off.

Congratulations. I agree with Lindsey, it is perfect (with 200m WR).

Re: Exit watch for 2020? [WARNING - REVIVAL!]

Intriguing Steve. Could it be a ‘holiday’ watch, something waterproof and fun? To be worn with sandals and shorts while sipping a mojito?
