Re: not a wind-up

As ever, opinions on these things are legion. I haven't a clue myself, but though I had read somewhere that you shouldn't, hence why I raised it.

Re: not a wind-up

Very nice piece of kit, but a question for the techies...should a manual watch be on a winder?

Re: Interesting Dilemma - All In or Fold

I've followed this thread, and I suppose it comes down to two questions for me: Are you able (or willing) to take the financial hit if you lose? Are there any watches in your collection that are irreplaceable for personal reasons? I fold. Mostly for reason 2. But then, last time I gambled with real ...

Re: 180 degree about turn

Interesting question, Lindsey. For me it has never been about an individual watch having that effect; more like combinations of attributes that were to my thinking proscribed at one time and have now gained acceptance. I went through a phase of only really wanting to wear smaller "dress watches", ma...

Re: What a difference?!!

What a brilliant photo! I have exactly that watch with exactly that strap and bracelet. I changed mine onto the bracelet last week. You are right it’s just so much better.

Re: Personal Engraving?

I have only one engraved watch: a gold Smiths Astral given in 1965 as a long service award to a chap who worked for an engineering firm in Portsmouth.

^^^ I didn’t get them engraved, Andrew. It’s sufficient for me that I know why I bought them.

Re: MiniMpi - February 2021

You may not have a Constance but you certainly have constancy, Ferg.

I'm not sure I could ever amass a one-brand collection like that.

And...you have refined the watch and shirt photo into a true art form.

Very well done, my friend! :clap:

Re: Which pieces are sacrosanct, never to be risked?

No surprises from me. I have a couple of vintage pieces I'm very attached to, but basically it's these two.

Both bought as mementos with money inherited: the Cartier in February 2016 in memory of my uncle; the Omega in March 2017 in memory of my mother.

Re: What would you change about your CW?

Ever since the new logo I’ve come away from the brand, I keep returning in hopes the logo changes but to no avail. Cannot tell you how disappointed I was when they announced the logo was changing. I like no I love the whole trident theme and the seconds hand trident counter balance is one of if not...
