Re: C60 Elite GMT 1000

As it’s a slow day and I am in pedantic mode, thought I would point out that a Rolex GMT Master does not have an independent hour hand. :) Neil Just using the "accepted" terminology - but you knows wot I meanz 8) I do indeed and I knew you knew. :wink: I try to convince myself that when I bought my...

Re: Forever watch...

Thanks all - yes you have helped in more ways than one. re the Steinhart i've come to the same conclusion which is whilst they look great and are great value for money i'd be forever (well, maybe not forever but quite often) trying to explain no it isn't a Rolex blah blah. for that reason its off t...

Re: C60 Elite GMT 1000

I have actually been questioning whether I need a GMT watch when I go abroad anyway. Actually just knowing the local time seems more than sufficient on practically every occasion. Strictly speaking these "GMT monitoring" type watches (independent 24 hour hand) are really for use in the home timezon...

Re: C60 Elite GMT 1000

I like the look of GMT watches.

I like the use of internal markings for the 24hr indicators.

I like most aspects of the design language of this one.

No interest in buying one though.

Not convinced they will sell very well in the current climate.

Re: £5k budget - what would you buy

Sit on it for six months, prices are going to come under a lot of pressure and you'll be pleasantly surprised at what becomes affordable. Very interesting idea, very pleased an offer of mine wasn't accepted prior to cv a few weeks ago. Keeping an eye on availability and formulating a plan. 5k's a l...

The task that I have allocated today is to jet wash the patio.

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 29

All ok here.

Thankful to be living on the outskirts of a small town, with open fields and footpaths meaning it’s easy to get out once a day without getting near anyone.

Mrs nbg Is doing some decorating to keep herself busy.

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 21

^^^^ I agree Lance. :lol: The upside as that I ended up ordering from an independent wine merchant that I used to drive to outside of town. Shop closed to visitors, but still doing deliveries. Their sales to the restaurant trade has evaporated overnight, so I thought I would play my part in trying t...

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

I really like Moser's usual fare, but this takes dressy diver to a new level, in a rather confused looking way. Was it a "proper" job, or were they exercising their humour as they've done in the past? Truth is I don’t know for sure, but I understand it was just a prototype that wasn’t intended for ...

If someone decides to sell one of these, I would break the rule I made about 6 months ago and seriously think about buying it. :) https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200328/f5ea2700b15127773e2131faea87c585.jpg I hear you on that one Neil.
