Re: CWL of the day

Re: The term 'WIS'

I don’t think there has ever been any instance of its use on the forum in any kind of spiteful or derogatory sense.

Re: The term 'WIS'

I believe the word idiot has now been replaced to better represent modern thinking. I think it’s perhaps more correct to recognise that the term idiot, once a medical definition, entered common parlance and became misused; changing, or at the very least distorting the original meaning of the word. ...

Re: The term 'WIS'

It could be seen an insulting to use this term now. The WIS acronym comes from the use of the term Idiot Savant. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/idiot-savant I’m pretty sure, but might be wrong, that the Doctor in the film Rain Man uses this phrase to diagnose the character playe...

Re: Watch box / watch pouch

Bremont supply their watches with a pouch if bought on a strap, or a watch roll if bought on the bracelet.

I bought a case of this myself. For what is effectively a marketing gimmick, is actually a very good beer.

Enjoy

Re: CWL of the day

Wearing this on a Red Rock canvas strap today, it’s been on this for a few days and it gives the watch a very different look and feel to the bracelet.

Re: Recommendations for Leather Quick Release Straps

Just bought a Hirsch Robby, not leather I know, but it arrived with quick release spring bars fitted. Not sure if it’s just this strap or whether Hirsch have rolled out quick release spring bars across their whole range.
