Re: If not watches, what would your weakness be?

Fountain pens for me also! (which would invariable lead to buying large quantities of different colour inks to go with them) - costs would soon mount up.

Re: Fountain Pens

Echo cult pens - spent a fortune with them this lockdown(s). Could also try The Hamilton Pen Company, Pure Pens, WriteHerePens to name a few more if your struggling.

Re: Ulysse Nardin San Marco GMT +/- Big Date

Lovely watch - always wanted a UN GMT back in the days when I travelled a lot for work.....my desire had decreased over the last year or so, but may now be rekindled!
Enjoy

Re: Brexit - additional duty to pay (UK to EU shipping)

I am not sure about UK to EU, but i have brought from Iguana Sell (Spanish Company) last week, and I was charged full UK VAT (for Iguana Sell you actually buy from the .co.uk website, not .es). There was something on the BBC last week about EU companies not selling to the UK anymore as they where no...

Re: How many interviewers did they need!!

I recently managed to get a new job (starts in January!). The recruiter seemed to want to "interview" me first before he would submit my CV, and then i had 2 1.5 hour interviews, including a 20 min presentation to the hiring manager and some HR ladies who sat and took notes (did not ask an...

Re: A Watch Celebrating Cricket

Thanks for this - it is an interesting watch.
Like the 4 /6, and missed the "12" wickets until i read the review.
What material are cricket balls made of - is it leather? - Perhaps they could have used the leather from worn cricket balls to make the strap .

Re: Its what we've all been waiting for . . . .. .

I like it. Nice to see it only has a 30 min counter - don't think anything more is needed for everyday use?? Was reading the "features", and noted the below - i don't have my glasses on, but i am sure it is a sold case back - perhaps finishing the rotor added extra cost! "Twin-flag en...

Re: Which Cartier

Sorry about that Steve! Like i said, i had not noticed it until it was commented on by a reviewer - funny what you see / don't see when you look at a watch. If you don't mind me asking, did you buy the watch on the bracelet with yours, and change to a strap - or just buy it on the strap. Most of the...

Re: Which Cartier

Thanks again for your valued input!! - (most unhelpful :D ) I have considered the Drive de Cartier, and the shape of the case puts me off - just a odd shape for me personally. I was looking again at the Xl Tank Solo, and noted something I spotted in some YouTube research that I had completely missed...

Re: Which Cartier

Thanks for all comments / suggestions.

Not a fan of the date wheel on the Diver (although the blue looks very nice).

Funds permitting, i will be buying early next year :D

Re: Which Cartier

That's a lovely picture.

I think i prefer the shape of the Tank, but i would want to try them both on at the same time to make a final decision :D
