Re: Non CW of the Day

Love the Trip-Tick case on Bremont watches. It really sets them apart from the norm in my opinion.

Sadly not, I’ve other plans made before the date was announced so won’t be able to attend. Hope you (and everyone else) has a great day out

Re: Manchester GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 27th April 2019

Coming from Suffolk it will be up north via A1 or M1 then M62 west, M60 and into manchester via the M602 at J12 of the M60. Iain Just realised if you look on a map, this route seems a bit daft as it appears to take you round manchester and looks a long route. Don’t be tempted to come off earlier th...

Re: Manchester GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 27th April 2019

Do any other forum members have suggestions for directions? I’m planning on driving up (from Suffolk) and use whatever park and ride options are available. Any advice which stops would be a good start and finish? C I personally won’t bother with a park and ride, and to be honest I don’t know of any...

Re: Non CW of the Day

It’s my running club annual awards dinner this evening. I’ve dug out my watch movement cufflinfs for their yearly outing. I’d better get a move on, that bar won’t drink itself dry.

An older photo but I love the way this watch catches the light.

Re: C1000 Typhoon chronograph question

I have an El Primero which goes the same thing. It’s not a typical quartz tick though, about 1/2 a second beforehand it seems to start to move slightly then spring over exactly on the minute if that makes sense.

Re: Sales Corner

Thanks for the comments Steve. I was around when the rules changes were being debated and recall many of the for and against arguements. Has there been any evidence to say whether the rules changes have had a positive or negative effect on sales corner? I suppose what I’m seeking is anecdotal eviden...

Sales Corner

I’m interested to hear if there is any feedback to the changes to the sales corner rules which took place several months ago. To recap, the old rule was any member needed a post count of 30+ to even enter sales corner, but once in they were in. This changed to 50+ posts to sell, but only 5+ to view ...

Re: watch strap question

I’ve not used any strap in the sea but the Hirsch was fine in a pool. I should add the caveat that I don’t spend long in the pool on holiday, maybe half an hour a few times a week with the daughter. I wouldn’t class it as heavy pool use therefore.

Re: watch strap question

I have to say that waterproof or not, I would not trust any leather strap in water, especially salt or chlorinated water. I personally think it's misleading to imply that leather straps can be used on dive watches other than for wear on dry land - just my two penn'orth. I would agree, however I hav...

Re: watch strap question

Interesting. Guy, It does look as if the two exaomples of the yellow soft touch have more of a tendency to wrinkle than my older red version, which dates from mid last year. I wonder has the supplier recently changed the construction somewhat? Note the blue strap I’ve pictured above was purchased l...

Re: watch strap question

Here are some photos of my blue soft touch strap. I bought this as it was advertised as being waterproof and wanted something to wear on my bronze trident in the pool on holiday. I assumed the deterioration was due to the chlorine as this is the state of the strap after just one week permanently on ...
