Could we have the blue Hombre dial on the Dartmouth? Christopher Ward logo at 12 Indented or applied twin flags at 6 (not sure if it has to be one or the other on the Hombre) Keep hour and minute markers as they are on the standard model? IF THE HOMBRE DIAL CAN ONLY BE USED ON A TRIDENT PLEASE ACCE...

Re: Non CW of the Day

It was sunny ☀️ when I went for a stroll this morning to watch the local Red Kites, Buzzards and Kestrel enjoying themselves.

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

A Dartmouth GMT looks good, but... there’s a practical problem with the un-numbered dial. The GMT hand rotates once per 24hrs and you need to be able to read off which hour it has just passed. In the images above the GMT hand is between the 4 & 5 hour batons, but what hour is that on a 24hr GMT sca...

I really like that band. Who made it?
It’s an Omega one. Not sure of the reference number, but it’s the strap that originally came with the Snoopy Speedmaster. I understand that most Omega ADs are prepared to order them.

^^Spot on! :D

Not a real border post now, but they keep it for the tourists.
I used my powers of deduction! :)

I know a chap who often holidays in Cyprus. Noted the Greek flag and colour scheme. Thought border post, divided island. Border through Nicosia. Bingo.

Re: Guess where this is thread....

My wild guess. Cyprus somewhere along the border. Probably in Nicosia. Taken from the Greek side. :)

^^^ Very nice Neil, but you’ve allowed some colour to creep in at the edges of the photo.... :wink:
Ah yes. Good point. A quick update then. :)

Re: What do you think of these watches?

IIRC the Port Royal was available in a few different dial configurations. It would probably help if you are able to post pics of the three specific watches that you are looking at. :thumbup:

Closely followed by any of the other Dartmouth variants with Rose/Bronze indices and hands, using the above 5 minute marker bezel and green or red gradient dial.

Re: Fine Watch Club - New Norwich Store

I don’t think I have ever seen a preowned dealers website with such hyperbole. I hadn’t realised there were quite so many fine investment watches out there. Plenty of other apparent BS as well. Not sure of the pricing of the Omega models, as I haven’t really looked at vintage Omega pricing recently....

Re: Do I want an Omega?

Neil, yes it's definitely got to be about the watch more than the brand albeit some of us have our favourite brands....you've got a pretty decent collection of a particular brand iirc I will only buy an Omega if I love the watch but I'm sure with such a great brand with such a large range that ther...

That will be Chawton House in Hampshire. The literature connection is to Jane Austin.
It is indeed! :clap: :thumbup:

I reckon I should have held back the pic of the Jane Austin statue. :)

A friend of ours used to live there.
