Re: Watches and Coffee? Unique Collaboration?

You can even combine watches and coffee with the "what do you use your chronograph for" challenge... I don't need a coffee brew kit. I have a cafetiere, coffee grinder and I'm quite willing to blend coffee beans to get the flavour I want. Mind you a good dose of Columbian Medellin Excelso in the mor...

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

There's another snoopy coming too. I've been asked about it a number of times but I'm not a big snoopy or moonwatch person. The Cal 321 is another matter but I'm not holding my breath.

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

Omega gave up on getting me new springs for my Seamaster clasp. They got me a whole new clasp instead. No more real gossip but I did notice a new addition to the shop. I think they're making a big effort to promote the moonwatch. What do you think? I thought this was fun and whilst I was in the stor...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Dynamic range and shake issues aside, this is why I love my Speedmaster.

Re: Draken Benguela - coming soon

As I donated my last Draken to charity (the Kraken I think) I'm unlikely to go for this anyway. Well, I know that the Benguela is the “current” offering in this maritime namefest. But seriously, the “Draken Kraken?” :lol: What price the Oris Boris anytime soon? Well it was early in the morning here...

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

Dan - Not sure about this. I strongly suspect that you'll get a better discount if you pay upfront. This has been my experience at least.

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

^^^^Gripper - It's tough getting a discount on Omega watch parts like straps (I wish they did do discounts on straps - Oh how I wish they did) and clasps and such. It sounds like you got a salesman who actually knew something about the wider watch landscape. A contact to be treasured, I'd say. My lo...

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

Getting a discount is mostly self-confidence and the perceived interest from the salesperson. I think it helps to wear a watch (a nice one if possible and a CW counts as they won't have seen one before). Spend time show interest and then just ask. You are armed with the fact that you know that disco...
