Re: C60 Apex Limited Edition Preview | Launches 28th August

Better still would be to leave the valve off altogether, as it will serve no practical purpose. :) Ah, but then these boards are full of "I never use the...": mainly chronograph but you could substitute GMT, moon phase, planetarium, sky chart, tide indicator, repeater, alarm or even date!

Re: Paint has come off He valve, Elite 1000

I think I'm for reporting the fault to them for feedback and QC purposes indicating that your desire not to lose possession of the watch for the period it might take them to examine/investigate/remedy outweighs the disappointment you feel, nonetheless seeking a reply from them. ^^^This, really.

Happy Birthday downer!

Many happy returns, Richard. Have a splendid day, wear a superb watch (not difficult in your case) and hopefully Mrs D will take you out for a fabulous lunch!

Re: Iconostasis - the Watch Wonderwall

I give you the Rolex Datejust. Launched in 1945, to most folk outside the strange world of WIS, Rolex = Datejust. By far the best selling Rolex model. Available with a range of sizes, materials, dials and indices, I reckon it’s the most recognisable Rolex model to Joe Public. For one watch Rolex ow...

Re: Questions - Chat with Co Founders - London GTG / CW Event - 31st August 2019

1. Please consider publishing service price guidelines so that we know what to expect. Other brands manage this and as an "internet only" brand it would be a useful way of communicating "future cost" expectations to customers. There may be another way to approach that question. People with long-ter...

Re: Iconostasis - the Watch Wonderwall

I’m going to give you a little vintage icon now that I have been rather fond of for a long time. The Tissot Navigator World Timer dates back to the 1950s, the end of what we might call the golden age of the ocean liner, before they all became cruise ships and the jet aircraft shrank the world. What ...

Can’t believe it’s not been mentioned yet, but the Omega Speedmaster simply has to make any “Iconic” list. Produced in countless versions since 1957; yet still around and more popular than ever.
We were leaving that one to YOU, Gary. Right, Neil? That one’s a stunner. Thank you. :thumbup:

Re: Edinburgh Fringe trip

An interesting hour! The IWC would also be my choice from that lineup. I have realised that I only like gold on smaller watches with leather straps.
