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

Oh that looks like a new 1159. Did you take any side on pics to show the case profile and cut away lugs? As to selling a house, it would have been far worse if you were taken by the Minute Repeater Supersonnerie at SFr295,000! :shock: Neil Very true and no I didn't. I didn't take the wrist shot eit...

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

This. But I quite like my house and don't think it's a good idea to sell it to buy a watch! But it is rather lovely. Pic taken yesterday at the AP boutique in Bangkok (they wrap new watches in cling film here, so excuse pic quality).

Re: Bronze Magrette Waterman

. . . . but it also states (on FORaSEC at least) " You can cancel the deposit during the waiting period and receive a full refund. " and then there is the usual internet distance selling rules allowing you to return etc. What is there to lose? Guy Thanks, that's useful to know, although I would be ...

Re: Forum Survey Results

Yet I contibute very little. The reason being; why make the effort when the replies will be negative. Are you really suggesting that the mere thought of any negativity, will dissuade you? Are you sure you're not mistaking negativity for someone disagreeing with your views? I'm really confused, with...

Re: Bronze Magrette Waterman

Not sure it's right to seek deposits based on a prototype, when the website states:

Note: These are images of the prototype. There maybe slight changes made to the production model.

Re: Carrier bags

When I bought my Chopard in Bangkok, they removed the watch from the box, placed the box in the AD branded bag and then placed the watch, already in it's travel bag (supplied by them), into the shoulder bag I was using. I wasn't given any say over this and it was the first time I learnt that care wa...

Re: Forum Survey Results

On the topic, are there any changes envisioned based on the results of the survey? Yes, you have to post with a smile on your face, even when your watch has been returned with the problem not fixed! :D If as the survey say's, folk aren't posting because of the perceived negativity, however that is ...

Re: Charles Frodsham Double Impulse Chronometer

It looks fantastic and it's a great achievement and read, but it would be nice to know more about the future plans for this watch. Not even the company website really gives much info, although a great video of the movement. I guess the moneyed of this World just call and say, 'I want one, how long i...

Congratulations on a fantastic new arrival. I've had this on the wrist as well and I didn't want to take it off, so I can imagine how you feel!

Re: Logo at 9 o'clock poll

I think it's all a load of hype really to keep the brands name in the limelight. No-one disputes quality, value, whatever, but wherever one of their watches is shown, you can be as sure as night follows day, that so will a dispute about the branding. What is also evident from other forums, is that o...

Re: New arrival - I spy a Bremont

In fact the only rubber straps I have got along with have been moulded at the lugs (Sinn, citizen and Bremont). It's a lovely watch and welcome back into the fold! I have a foot in both 'camps' of your watch as I have the U2 blue and the MBIII (orange band). I'm not a great fan of rubber straps, so...

Re: If you want to buy a Rolex

we have once again demonstrated how good the Rolex marketing machine is at creating internet content to drive the perception of exclusivity and thereby demand for their product. Spot on. As the largest selling luxury watch brand (as opposed to group), they are hardly exclusive. Popular, yes. But th...
