Along with John Mayall, Pink Floyd and Yes, Cream were de rigeur listening for me too, as a teenager.
Seems you and me had very similar musical tastes :D

RIP Ginger Baker

As part of Cream along with Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce he helped form my musical taste in my teens. Now only Eric left. He was an argumentative and miserable sod but put him behind a huge set of drums and he was a master. This could be the end of the ten minute drum solo...….

Re: Delivery timescales

From what I'm hearing on this forum, it seems to me that something has changed at CW Towers at some point. Between December 2015 and January 2017 I ordered six watches From CW. Even though they were all ordered at busy sale times they all went through quickly and efficiently with despatch emails rec...

I am going to go out and buy myself a V12 classic of some description for sunny days.
Mercedes SL65 AMG sounds like an ideal candidate :D

Phil's got a better tan too. Doubt if the CW Tech sees much light of day at the moment. :problem:

Re: Erika’s orig

Would love to see some comparisons between the Erika, Watch Gecko and George's straps as quite keen on this style. I have both Watchgecko and Erica's MN straps. I bought the Watchgecko's first just to prove the principle to me and see if I like them before splashing out on Erica's. I did like them ...

Re: Damasko DA 44

I will google your suggestion. I am loving the grey and red stripe! Wow, that will look stunning! Thank you for the advice. It's going to be tough to hold out on this watch until the end of the year...who knows :D The Watchgecko elastic grey red stripe and some of the other colours are not in stock...

Re: Ooh la la! 'French Style' straps

EddieTheBeast sent me a link via PM for MN style straps from CheapestNATOStraps and they are really cheap so may be worth a punt for anyone interested... https://www.cheapestnatostraps.com/collections/paratrooper-straps Still got my Turtle on the wrist, this must be the longest I've ever worn this w...

Ooh la la! 'French Style' straps

As I said I would post pictures, rather than further hijack the Erica's straps thread, I thought I would start another. I had been thinking of buying an Erica's MN strap for some time but the cost put me off as a bit much for a speculative punt. So seeing the clones on the Watchgecko site for £18 I ...

Re: Erika’s original

Watchgecko have just started selling their own 'French style' elastic MN straps and I also saw this evening on Facebook that Moose Strap Co, Canada are doing something similar. In the meantime, as I don't like the single pass style of the Erica's Original type strap, I have bought a few more from G...

Re: Suggestions - deployant clasps?

Watch Obsession sell a selection of deployment clasps from Hirsch and other manufacturers from about £30. I had a deployment on a Hirsch strap I used to have until recently and it was good quality, way above the cheapies from ebay.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Giving the Superocean a rest from its bracelet for a change so fitted the black leather CW strap that came with a long gone Trident 600 38. Liking it for now. BTW the dial isn't really blue, it's the AR coating in the sun.

Re: Breitling anyone?

Wouldn't be without my 2002 Superocean, my most worn watch. A bit shiny for some people but I like it. I could also be tempted by a few of the modern Breitling offerings but outside my price range.
