Re: Strap Management

I have a box of straps, but I must confess I don’t access it very often. The vast majority of my watches stay on the same straps for months or even years.

Re: “ISH” Time returns: the Meistersinger Metris

A nice watch in what looks to be a beautiful location.

"Spirit of the Time" - FINAL VOTE

Well, the Admin Team has cogitated, deliberated and digested, and we have come up with a final six. There were some outstanding images and, whilst we took technical merit into consideration, we tried to focus on those that gave the watches a meaningful context. Not an easy task, and we had a few int...

Re: C65 AM GT Limited Edition

It's a brand new introduction. If there is a sale I wouldn't expect to see it.

Re: C65 AM GT Limited Edition

Is it a cheap chrono? No it is'nt. Should it be cheaper? No IMHO it should't. Do I like it? Yes i do. Will I be buying it? No I do't think that I will. Very much my thoughts, Pete. I have my two C70s and I have my Speedy. And much as I like chronographs I will be retiring next week, only working on...

Re: C65 Dartmouth QC Question

I must admit I struggle to see anything awry, but if they have offered to look at it I would take them up as Patrick suggests. I have just realised something, after months of looking at the Dartmouth, which would bug the living daylights out of me... ...there ARE NO 1 minute and 59 minute markers! T...

Re: Protecting Stainless Bracelets

I must admit, I am in the “Watches Are For Wearing” camp. The odd ding on a bezel or desk diving mark on the clasp is all part of life’s rich tapestry, and in the case of the latter they can be brushed out anyway.

Superb movement. The same one was used for the C70 Chronometers.

Re: Ball Watch Company - Under Rated Brand?

Since we're on the subject, Craig. I've never tried a Ball watch. I have the odd tool watch but in general I still prefer a wristwatch. Much more comfortable and easier to tell the time in a pubic public place.

I’m on record as saying that the box my LLD came in is ridiculously massive. It has its own gravitational field and I now have a plant sitting on it.
Gravitational field? That’s nowt! My Omega box has satellites.

Quite appropriate for a Moonwatch, I guess. :D
