Re: nope, nope, nope, nope, oooooh!

Evening Lindsey. Glad to have you back girl. Can't really answer your question as I don't think that I have ever ended up with the watch I went in to get! Gotta admit, the old sales pages are a demon place to view and Jura have a lot to answer for. Sent from my Redmi Note 6 Pro using Tapatalk

Re: more than one of one watch..

I have a few CW multiples, c60, C11, etc, and like Guy have a few Elliot Browns multiples (5 Cranford's and 5 Bloxworths if I remember correctly) My real soft spot is for the C8 series however, my favourite of the CW models. Currently the C8 box sits as below, (the Navitimer is a place holder until ...

Re: When was the last time you used your timer on your wrist trinket

Whilst I do use the chronograph function on a watch I don’t get why anyone would use a dive bezel for timing above the water. I get why they are used under the water, however do folk really get confused and disoriented on dry land? :) Oh look l have just parked my car for an hour, it’s now 9:40am. ...

Re: When was the last time you used your timer on your wrist trinket

on a chronograph: about 35 years ago, then got rid of all chronographs because I never used them (and so there was no need for their cluttered design) bezel: this morning for making tea Outside of the conversation above, I probably use the bezel more than the chrono. Bezels are bloody useful things...

This evening, to time the porridge in the microwave. Exploded after 3.5 minutes. (The porridge, not the watch.) Porridge is a dangerous game to play in the microwave. As is trying to microwave an egg in one of those plastic poacher things. Lethal. Sent from my Redmi Note 6 Pro using Tapatalk

Re: When was the last time you used your timer on your wrist trinket

Thanks for that. Every day is a school day! StrapMeister was spot on. Very simply, when navigating in Visual Flight Rules you fly a series of legs at a known heading and speed (taking wind speed and direction onto account as you can't fly in a "straight" line) that you have plotted. At the end of e...

Re: When was the last time you used your timer on your wrist trinket

There are two sets of rules for flying any aircraft: VFR and IFR. VFR stands for Visual Flight Rules IFR means Instrument Flight Rules Depending on the weather conditions a pilot may opt for one set of rules or the other. Thanks for that. Every day is a school day! StrapMeister was spot on. Very si...
