Re: Trident C60 suddenly gaining time - reasons?

I would check first with a pocket compass. Hold it level, let it settle, bring the watch up underneath it and if the needle starts to swing significantly out of line it’s a sure sign the watch is magnetised. Any watchmaker will have a demagnetiser and should be able to fix it for coppers.

Re: Rugby World Cup

England, immense! Australia are not a bad side, powerful in attack, but made a lot of errors and are being made to look average.

As far as we know, Paul, Chris has changed his avatar. Nothing more.

It would be great to see the dials as well as the movements on these dream watches, Om! :D

Re: Guess where this is thread....

OK, this one is a cathedral obviously. One of my great favourites, a wonderful expression of high Gothic throughout the building but particularly on this fabulous West front. But where is it?

Spot on with the location, scooter!

It’s the Polish Memorial, however. The Shot At Dawn Memorial is incredibly poignant. Don’t mind telling you I wept standing before it.

Tim, that’s the norm for Norwich, try visiting Windsor Bishop :(
I remember you posting about that before, Richard. Very strange, WB has always been very welcoming as far as I’m concerned.

Re: Fine Watch Club - New Norwich Store

Thanks, Tim. That does seem a shame – an odd way to conduct a business when you have a location in a relatively prosperous town where people might walk in live with the wherewithal to buy what you are selling! I have to go “up the city” as we say next week so will take a look, but as I’m not really ...

Re: Punching an extra hole in straps

I have in the past put a small screw through a strap into a block of wood. A little bit Heath Robinson but it works and the tang eventually enlarges the hole.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Whereas my two are to the right of it. I really like the transparent twin flag dial.

Not sure about the Ombré. I never liked the brown but the blue looks better.

I’m out on the Dartmouth. Don’t like the indices.
