How do you find legibility on the white Sealander? The indices have more of a bevelled / raised edge than the C60 ones so it looks like the silver doesn't blend into the dial.

Re: eBay / Chrono24 / other?

Pretty much every watch I've sold has been through eBay. I guess larger audience and the various selling / buying promos help. For example, there's a current promo running for 10% off when buying used / preloved goods including watches that makes it attrractive to buyers, and there's always seller p...

I really hope this doesn't mean more blue watches.

Re: Where do you keep your daily watch?

My daily watch is usually on my wrist and only ever removed when in the shower, swimming or doing DIY. No watch winders or routine here, I pick on the spur of the moment from the watch box but tend to match the piece with what Im wearing.

Re: Can you help with some research, please?

1. Yes, and my daughter is currently doing the very same thing at primary school and enjoying it loads :thumbup: 2. Bit before my time but I remeber the fuss about it all and have visited the Museum much later. Does the Egyptian display at Harrods count? :lol: 3. Yes to both. 4. Yes and loved both t...

Re: I don’t need a Dartmouth, right?

The solution is simple. Wear the Aquitaine on the left and the Dartmouth on the right. That way, neither will get jealous and no need to worry about rotation. Bonus that you dont need remember which arm to raise to tell the time.

Re: Blue watches? What’s that all about??

What used to be one of my least favourite colours has now become my most prolific :ka:

I really like blue hands on a crisp white dial though, and on a blue strap.

Re: C60 quartz developed a 4 second sweep

My Tag does this very same thing when the battery is nearing end of life. Still keeps perfect time though.

Re: Is it only me, or are used watch prices soft?

I think that he was mainly referring to a lot of the interest free loans that were floating around during that period. There was a lot of cash being injected through many different avenues. This +1. With all the free money being handed out like sweets, it had to filter it's way down somewhere and w...

Re: C7 Apex LE loss by UPS

In fact, only Royal Mail has never given me any cause for worry. Just my 2p worth, keep well. C I've had mixed results with the Royal Mail using RMSD. 1x successful claim for a repair to a watch that got damaged with nothing more than a few pictures and a repair bill to show, but also 1x unsuccessf...

Those new folding display phones are ridiculously expensive. I'd rather spend that amount on a watch :)

Re: Carrying a huge mobile phone

How do people who embraced huge phones long ago carry them? Personally I haven't embraced 'HUGE'. It has to be able to fit in a trouser pocket comfortably. I have an iPhone SE for that reason - 14cm x 7cm. I don't understand the trend for tablet-sized phones. Anything much bigger than I have mentio...
