Re: SOTC: EddieTheBeast Jan 2020

I enjoyed reading that, complete with some excellent outdoors pics.

My favourites are the Turtle and Alpinist; two watches that I have often looked at thinking I would like to try them at some stage.

Re: SOTC - Qubo | January 2020

An interesting write up of a great collection. :thumbup:

Seems you have the Rolex bug. :)

Mind you having already got the BB58, there will now be no need to get distracted and hunt for a Submariner 5513 or 14060.

What’s next?

Re: Unplanned (well a bit) new purchase

Ok the 2020 Olympic Games don’t start until late July, therefore if you flipped before then, you wouldn’t get the full benefit from one of the Omega Olympic Seamaster range, each with a different colour Olympic ring.....

Paul I think you have bought something that you will flip within 6 months! :lol:

Radio Captain Cook LE......

PS: I was going to say you had bought a BB58 (an excellent choice), but noticed the Chelmsford branch don’t have Tudor listed as a brand.

Re: Three Vintage Speedmasters (One a New Arrival)

Great write up Gary. :thumbup:

TV dial is my favourite. :)

I have always been a 3, 6, 9 only for the layout of three sub dial chronographs. However I would break that rule for that TV dial speedy.

Re: New Glycine Subs Are Out..

If it was 40mm and without a date I would like it. There aren’t many dive watches that use an Explorer style dial. Don’t understand the comments about the proportion of dial to bezel. The proportion of dial to bezel looks to me (well I did use the only head on shot to measure proportions! :) ) more,...

Re: It's a list in a magazine so it must have credibility

I also started out by reading the top 3rd and then sort of skimmed through the rest accelerating as I went.. There are however some nice pieces along with ehrmmmm... some not so nice! So, if you could only own one off the list and a second as possible reserve, which would they be? This will either ...
