Re: Smashing Christmas lights

They are fun.

So what is the consensus. Do you all straight swipe them all left to right or slowly break random lights...? (Or just ignore them!?)

Re: Bentley Continental Flying Spur

Two cars which are completely different, so certainly an odd choice to have. If you can do the Bentley then go for it. Should be pretty deprecation proof (except the dealer margin), but watch out for repairs. As has been said above, this will all be offset by the MUCH higher depreciation on the newe...

Re: Trident Summer Weekend Offer

Trident discounts have occurred in the past over a weekend, certainly not a new thing. Most people either wait for a voucher such as this or usually a £100 off code, so I would suggest not linked to the MK3.

Re: Would marks on under side of lugs bother you?

Its not acceptable at all. There is no excuse for it. The amount of watches for sale i see that state 'Only slight marks on lugs from changing straps' yet ive changed a thousand straps and never made a mark. Its really not hard if you take care. I think next time, I will be taking a drive down to K...

Re: Would marks on under side of lugs bother you?

Difficult with the sports models. I love the submariner bracelet and if that was on the BLNR then great. But just couldn't get on with the PCLs. Sub didn't once come off bracelet and the adjustment was brilliant. All personal preference I suppose. Anyone interested here is a pic of the BLNR on the E...

Re: Explorer - Uncomplicated

Awesome, wish I had to courage to get and wear one of these. Hopefully CW will offer a casual, elegant, rugged and affordable explorer watch like this some day. ;) I have always thought that the C65 Trident Vintage is 'slightly' similar. Although I had to return as 38mm just didn't work for me. htt...

Re: Would marks on under side of lugs bother you?

After much research I went for the Everest. Although expensive, I think I made the right choice. From the pictures I have seen online - I wasn't really sure it would work. But on the wrist I really think it works great. I noticed your nato on the Sub yesterday, really looks great with the slimmer lu...

Re: Would marks on under side of lugs bother you?

^^^^^ I am assuming that the strap wasn’t fitted at an AD for the watch brand concerned, as they all tend to have the correct tool that enables them to remove the bracelet and fit a strap (and back again) in about a minute. Enjoy the watch, remembering that it’s a hard to get model and remember the...

Re: Explorer - Uncomplicated

Congratulations. One of my all time favourite Rolex. I think you have summed it up very well. And there is also the Everest link which gives it a nice fun fact!

Here's to many years of memories for you with that on your wrist.

Re: Would marks on under side of lugs bother you?

To clarify. I was buying a strap for the watch. And the gentleman took the bracelet off for me, and fitted the strap. He did not charge for the service and I only paid for the strap. He was a lovely chap, which actually makes it hard for me to be angry about it! I agree with sentiment above, had it ...
