Nothing particularly special in my opinion, and they included the complimentary price list.

Re: Strap Colour Question.

Thanks to you both, the "hirsch ayrton red" looks very thick, and bit out of my ideal price range (at the moment anyway).

Never been a fan of Nato's but these actually look quite good.

Things to ponder!

Re: Rugby World Cup

Stand out game is tomorrow (NZ v SA) - if NZ win, and don't pick up any injuries, then i think they will win the cup again. 12 Oct England V France will be good, but i think by then 1st / 2nd will already have been decided in the group so it may be dead rubber. Watched the opener today, Japan i thou...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

Just saw this on Jura's twitter feed with a link to a review. Very nice, but do not have the spare cash (sadly)

Re: CWL outside investment

Not actually looked but based on the no P/L comment, presumably they have presented a balance sheet. From the P/L reserves number in the bottom of the Balance sheet you should be able to work out the profit after tax - difference between the two years. Granted it wont give you revenue etc, but would...

What book are you reading thread!

As there are a host of threads dealing with music, drink, and watches, thought I would start one about books. I travel a lot with work and don’t watch telly in the UK, let alone a abroad so I spend most of my down time reading books. Currently working my way through the Lee Child Jack Reacher Novels...

Re: Guess where this is thread....

So would I!!
I just arrived in Cairo 1.5 hours later than planned thanks to BA / Air traffic control who had us sit at Heathrow for over an hour.
It is the view from my balcony before sleep deprivation set in.
