Re: Fantasy Football 2019/20

Didn't realise I'd actually won it in the end, thought I'd faded away after the restart!

For someone who cares less and less about football as each season passes, fantasy football is a good way to keep an eye on what's going on.

Re: Impulse Buys - Watches preferably, but not exclusively

I was out on a walk the other day and decided to pop into the corner shop for a Snickers Duo. Does that count?

Re: Watch "The Tudor North Flag Is A Forgotten Bargain"

It confirms what I already knew. It's a great watch but not for 99% of the watch buying population. You need to be able to think outside of the box and be a little different. Not sure I agree with that; it always seems to be held in high esteem when mentioned on this and other forums. I think it's ...

15 year old AstroTurf football trainers :shock:

Re: Lockdown Boredom Relief

Great work, looking good (super heavy work, look after your back... I speak from experience). We all want to know what appropriate rough/tough watch you were wearing for this graft 😁. Definitely G-Shock work. Had to have a few days off after dropping one of the sleepers on my foot with less than op...

Re: Lockdown Boredom Relief

Took delivery of some repurposed railway sleepers just before lockdown. They were each ~5 metres in length and practically immovable (I weighed a 1.3 metre piece at 130kgs). 20200509_165924.jpg I'm very slowly (four brand new, now blunt, saws later) moving them to look like some raised beds. Will ge...

Nice! (The watch is merely ok!)

Early start for the beef ribs?
6am. Having a 2 year old and a 5 year old means I would've been up anyway so took the opportunity.

Re: Barton Elite Silicon

Hi! A bit of a thread bump but I'm considering getting a Barton Elite Silicon strap. I was going to get it from Amazon but saw on there lots of reviews saying the strap broke. How have peoples experiences of longevity been of these straps? I have a couple and have never had a problem with either. I...

Has van der Klaauw released a brightly coloured diver watch of late?
