Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

Called my insurance company re my car policy renewal. Despite no changes to my circumstances they wanted to increase my premium from £315 to £890. After giving me that information, the customer services representative asked "are you able to afford the excess". I told them, yes but did they...

Re: The Golf Topic

Lucky is the wrong word, but Scottie had his far share of good breaks. He chipped in twice in round 1. Somehow, he seemed to plug in a bunker, and the next time they showed it the ball was somewhere else. On one hole he touched the ball before hitting it, and it was no foul. Winning by 4 shots is o...

Re: Thoughts about this nato combo?

I like the colour combo, great for summer....but I don't really like Natos I'm afraid. A white rubber/silicone strap would be my preference.

Re: Cool Feature on TAG Website

Do you mean customising with different straps?

I was just surprised to see the price has gone up £300 since I bought mine a few months ago.

On the plus side, the straps are decent value. £200 for the perforated leather racing strap including deployent or £290 for the bracelet.

Re: New Bremont logo?

The Terra Nova is quite Radiomir-esque to me.

I also agree the Supermarine point made above, the new one seems more generic (leaving all logo comments aside).

Re: Just a place to put nice pictures you’ve taken

I remember sitting across the Thames from Battersea Power Station maybe 15+ years ago when it was being sold for £500m and dreaming of how to get my hands on that much money and what I'd do with the building if I owned it. I think it might be my favourite building in the world. Shame to turn it int...

Re: New Bremont logo?

The NATO logo: Blimey, I hope Bremont didn't pay a vast fee for someone to come up with a logo that is so close to a few others (Nato, Stone Island,...). It seems very uninspired. Having said all of that, we've seen it with CW, if they do go ahead with the change then the fuss will eventually die d...
