Re: C65 Black - Perfect strap monster

The colour scheme of the watch is similar to the C65 vintage which I also think is very versatile wrt strap choices.

Re: Klarna's online process - a note of caution

Websites/technology/online financial processes don't always go smoothly but woe betide you if you want to speak to an actual person to sort out the mess. Even once you have spent 5 minutes exploring the deepest orifices of their website to find a phone number. Then dial the number, listen to the 3 m...

Re: Vintage watch dealers

I recalled seeing a website called Birth Year Watches in the past, and a quick google and my memory serves me well. They are based in England. They also have a very good Trustpilot rating.

New to me yesterday. B3AA3982-AB2A-4004-93A9-8A6049D4129C.jpeg Four watch sales, a pm seeking advice, a fortuitous set of circumstances and a very enjoyable conversation over a couple of drinks led to this changing hands.
