Re: Steinhart Grand Prix LE

Excellent timing on asking as I finally got it last week after a very long wait. It was actually ready around Oct, but as it was bad timing Steinhart were good enough to hold it a couple of months longer. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8499/8325568649_588401064a_b.jpg A bunch of other pictures can be...

Re: Have you ever wanted to keep just 1 watch.

I completely understand and often think about going down to one. Since I recently sold my Ball's wrist time is being dominated by my Benarus Remora for two simple reasons..... size & convenience. It's the smallest watch I own (width & more importantly.... height) and pretty much suits any oc...

Re: NN SALE LINK IS UP!

I got the email and took a look this morning.

I had a wish list of 1 watch - a NN U-2 Vintage C8 Pilot Mk II watch, but none available :(

Missed out on a Ball engineer but....

At what you've paid I think it's just about impossible to find a better value new watch at that price point. The quality is nothing less than excellent and (personally) a noticeable step up from CWL, Steinhart, etc

I Look fwd to the pics

I reckon its closer to 0.6 and that Rick has rounded it down to make it look better than it really is.

Not quite sure if the new Helson Turtle is just plain Fugly or a bit of an ugly duckling i.e. a bit of a swan in there somewhere. Not for the shy and retiring: http://watchwerx.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/helson-turtle-trio.jpg?w=640&h=325 http://watchwerx.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/helson-turt...

Re: New BOSCHETT

I didn't expect that when I clicked i.e. last time I looked, Boschett was 100% divers.

Nice watch overall, but not 100% sure about the 'super cup' font/colour

Re: Ernest Jones Sale

Nice pick up Mr Hammer. Just as well I'm short of money at the mo with the Steinhart Grand Prix LE to pay for. The quidco (pays, but takes months) on top of the sales price, make the Ball's ridiciously cheap and a very good investment. If I had the money I'd buy a few and sell them on after the sale...

Re: Steinhart Grand Prix LE

I've read that they should all be delivered by the end of July, so maybe another month or so for mine (#112/150).

I'm about to move house and don't really have the money for it. Now that I've seen pictures of the real thing I'll just have to find it!
