Re: Incoming C65 Trident QR bracelet

Well I guess QR stands for quick release, not quick refit :problem: That’s quite true... They’re a piece of cake to remove, but refitting is a little more fiddly. I’d say that refitting a standard bracelet with a Bergeon is almost as easy, but removal is super simple with the QR bracelet. My commen...

Re: I bought a Rolex above rrp

A great acquisition Bjorn and if you had to pay a bit above rrp it makes sense to me if that is the going rate and it is a watch you are keen to own. I’d have no hesitation doing the same. I’m sure you are going to really enjoy wearing that watch for many years and if you ever did decide to move it ...

To give a backdrop for Sir Trevor McDoughnut to read the News at Ten?

Re: New Omega Bond watch

Very nice, not sure about the mesh and the price is high (RRP £7,390 in the UK) albeit it is Ti (including the mesh bracelet).

Re: Has Rolex gone to far...

Why would you want to mod a Rolex?!?!? Because you can is probably the answer, although not my cup of tea. I agree with comments above - if I want to mod my Rolex then that is up to me and nothing to do with Rolex. If someone sells a modded Rolex as such and it is accurarely described in terms of n...

Re: Alternative strap for Legend

I'm not too sure Paul tbh, sorry! I think I would have gone for black leather with stitching to match the cream colour of indices or one of Erikas black ops (probably the "Sand"). I know they are pricey but are custom made to your wrist size.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Still in the honeymoon period with my Bremont U-22 BZ and, whilst I like the riveted flieger style strap, it didn't somehow work in black. I've therefore switched to a brown strap of the same style (which belongs to my C8 MkI) that tones much better with the grey dial which has a brownish hue to it...

Re: Deep sea diving for Oldies

Des, you are not alone here I feel. I'm sure I have at least 6-8 divers that could go 200-600m and they are lucky if they get to 2m in a holiday pool.

The C11 is a great watch, my first or second CW was an Extreme and like you the hands were a big part of the attraction.

Thanks bud. It’s from 1964, 36mm.
It looks in great condition for being 50 something years old.

Re: Ooh la la! 'French Style' straps

Question on the watchgeko strap for those that have them please... I would quite like to try one on my little LLD but it has awkward lug width of 19mm. Do you reckon a 20mm strap would squidge in enough to fit and not look dodgy? thanks I too think it will be fine and for a few quid it must be wort...
