Re: Would marks on under side of lugs bother you?

I Like to think it wouldn’t bother me... but it would...especially when a professional has done it. I reckon though they could be polished out. I’ve got rid of worse using a cape cod polishing cloth, which will leave a shiny finish and then using an abrasive pad to rebrush the brushed effect if that...

Re: C8 Birkin's Blower TMB Limited Edition @ £2495

Again this is lost on me.... you take a piston from a car melt it down and recast discs out of the metal...to me that ceases to be a recognisable part of the car? All a bit emperor's new clothes? I'm clearly not the target market :?

Re: Limited chrono quartz on the summer sale

And a heads up...mines gone back today too.... having mulled over it for a week I decided it is just a little small for my taste and I just didn’t bond with it....

Re: Clearance section

Summer and Winter have generally been the “main” sale times...but there are regular offers from CW throughout the year where generally anything from 15% to 30% off on various watches can be found... :thumbup:

Re: C8 'Al Deere' TM-B Limited Edition marks RAF centenary

What I don’t understand about these watches, is once you’ve taken the original piece of plane... car etc and melted it down and reshaped it to fit in the watch, then to me it ceases to be an original part of the craft. It’s no longer recognisable and surely has lost the history and relevance?

Re: Seiko Samurai - Orange

Longislandwatch.com are shipping to the UK if anyone is that tempted, good saving on RRP as well.... Very tempted, but never dealt with them before. Anyone have any opinion? Plus not sure about import taxes, VAT etc. Delivery is very reasonable tho at $5. Pity we cannot get them here in uk, would b...

Re: Sale time

One wonders how they can run out of "limited edition" boxes for a set number of limited edition watches... Surely they had a corresponding number made up to go with the watches? Precisely :thumbup: In reality they are selling something not as advertised. If I was looking to buy one, altho...

Re: C60 New Limited Edition Chronometers

I love the red accents on the white version....but don't like the white on white...can't understand why they didn't follow the red accents onto the black version...it's these small details that make the difference... :problem:

Well.... I suppose the seller is free to advertise them....just as the members are free to decline the kindly offer..... I wouldn't lose any sleep over it :yawn:

Re: Grinding noise from crown when winding C11

This sounds exactly like a problem I had with a C600 Tri Tech I had. I returned it for repair and was advised that the crown stem was too long.... I have no idea how that causes the nasty sound but it was fixed under warranty anyway.

Re: CW On eBay

As a seller, if you are patient, eBay frequently offer "sell anything for £1 deals. That's the time to whack an expensive watch on there... These are becoming the norm now from Ebay... I can bank on varying deals from 25...50...75% off final value fees up to the holy grail of £1.00 max selling...
