Explorer 1 - now that is absolutely an all rounder and one of my favourite watches. The classic watch, suitable for beach to boardroom, via a mountain hike and nice restaurant. :)

Please stop posting photographs like that, Neil. I had almost convinced myself I didn't want one. :lol:

Sorry about you troubles, but at least you have 5£ left to start the new fund.

Although the CWs probably feel a bit down in the dumps, as they receive minimal wrist time compared with the Tudors. :shock:
Horological anthropomorphism, Neil? Dangerous trait, means you're getting fond of them.

Re: The Tudor Black Bay 41 Slayer

I'm assuming that this is a personal view that the C65 leaves the BB dead in the water for you? It's a great watch and I would take it any day, but I don't think it will cause too much insomnia to the board of a global concern like Tudor. There's probably room for a little co-existential harmony in ...

Ordered for early June. Same spec as Mrs TC’s car, same grey I’ve got now.

Re: Manual or auto? (But not watches)

Interesting to hear a different perspective, Paul. I am on my second Toyota, having been with the brand for five years now. Never a hint of a problem and the dealership in Lowestoft has always looked after me extremely well.

Re: Brands - How Much Are You Willing To Pay?

Interesting proposition, Chris. We tell ourselves (or try to convince ourselves and others) that our thinking is not brand driven, but I think in many cases it is. When I bought my Tank I realised that I would probably be happy to pay more for a Cartier than for similar or perhaps even better qualit...

Re: Manual or auto? (But not watches)

Cheers, guys. Chris...model/colour? Not keen on that gold and I don’t do white, silver or pale blue. Most others are fine. No point in downsizing on the spec, so I don’t see the cruise, integrated nav system or climate control as negotiable. Climate possibly, as I don’t have that currently and the a...

Re: Manual or auto? (But not watches)

You were impressed with it then, Steve? How did you find the CVT gearbox? Well, for all I know Chris there could have been a couple of very small donkeys trundling a wheel under there! However, it seemed happy to run on the flat at low speeds using the battery, the petrol engine kicked in when acce...
