Re: 19mm straps

Depends on whether you can live with a squidgy look, and the meteoric effort then needed to remove the strap when you find you can't.

Re: Why wouldn’t you wear this watch?

The other watch I have my eye on this morning is a 1970 Tudor jumbo Prince Oysterdate. Things could go either way! :lol: You would like an Oysterdate of one form or another. I find these vintage ones are very dependent on condition, though, and dial choice makes a big difference. I found my gold/ch...

Re: Why wouldn’t you wear this watch?

I’d wear it because looking at it every day would make me smile and remember not to take things too seriously. I’d be able to tell the time on it because by now, I know where the hands are in relation to hours and minutes. If for some reason I forgot, I’d be able to work things out by looking at th...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

^^^ Go for the Explorer. The only watch that I have that I would ever consider wearing, if restricted to wearing one watch for a few months, with no rotation allowed. :) C472C560-4213-4616-9DEE-1C8A73DF76FA.jpeg8DD590DC-1487-40CC-9B06-1C6F0F2CA439.jpeg0479B6E4-2426-426F-9CFC-4501D4DAB4CA.jpegFE21A0...

Re: Leaving the forum after three and a half years

I think the last time I bought a new CW watch was around 10 years ago.

I don't particularly feel like an imposter.

Stick around. :thumbup:

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

I just noticed this. Can you not do both? I don't really know Rolex models that well, but that oyster date looks like a classic vintage watch that would be hard to replace, and doesn't seem to be a watch that has been homaged to death, as it were. I'm considering the "both" option too. :t...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

Do it Anthony :clap: Yesterday I came to the conclusion I'm definitely going to do the trade. Everything about the Explorer is "better" - more modern, more durable, classic looks. This morning the gold dial and markings of the Oysterdate is trying to charm me back. https://i.postimg.cc/NM...

Great watches you have there.

Something thick with a gold buckle would work. Brown or black.

Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I was obsessed with all the games, gadgets, tv and music of the era. My first watch, which looked much like this Casio, was so exciting.
