Re: Do I want an Omega?

Have you tried a modern pie pan Globemaster Constellation? I have one put away for a significant birthday, bought at discount earlier this year. It's a beautiful thing. I haven't Jon but one to try, certainly the pie pan dial is quite a unique feature and I did like my vintage Constellation. Hopefu...

Do I want an Omega?

I recently posted in the "What watch are you dreaming about now?" thread, a photo of the Omega Planet Ocean 39.5mm. Omega is a brand that I've been quite undecided about in the past (I have owned a couple of vintage Omegas including this Constellation Pie Pan, now moved on, probably rashly :problem:...

Re: What are you listening to right now ?

He's looking a bit older (don't we all) but great voice and classic song. I remember this song dates back to '84 as I started university then and there was a guy who was his dead ringer at my uni, even down to the red curly haired quiff. I didn't know the guy so never asked him if this was by design...

Re: What are you listening to right now ?

^^^that is a great tune. The brilliant original of course by Sting which was then sampled by Puff Daddy (Diddy) in this song, which he wrote to remember his friend Biggy Smalls (aka Notorious BIG) after his murder.

Re: Guess where this is thread....

The original poster of this thread was Richard D. I know he hasn’t posted for quite some time but his current avatar pic would imply that he’s been banned? I can’t imagine that he has. The image is smaller and facing the opposite way to that of the official ban banner. Has he changed his pic to giv...

No prizes for this one. A clue....the last time I visited the obvious landmark in the photo I held a door open for this guy, then realised it was Rafa Benitez :shock:

That’s right Chris, better hope England win the RWC :wink:
Not a prayer mate so you’ll be able to get a few digs back soon I reckon. If you give it you have to be able to take it :D :thumbup:
Well I think you have a chance to win. If not I’ll be gentle.

Brilliant! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Full disclosure: I have no Scottish ancestry but feel as though I have the right to laugh as the Scots take the mickey every time England get beat at anything :lol: I guess we walked right into that one by threatening legal action before the match.

One of the great things about rugby is that this is possible!!
Although I am more of a football than a rugby man, sadly you are right. In football there would likely be a barney :aufsmaul: :löl:

Re: Almost a year.

Since I joined the forum roughly 3.5 years ago, it loks like the longest I have gone between buying a watch was just under 4 months between the Tudor GMT and the Halios Seaforth. That's pretty poor, I thought I'd bought very few watches this year but it's actually already 4, 2 of which I've already ...

Re: Rugby World Cup

Without rising to any baiting that may be going on :silent: Japan are clearly a very good team, which I think everyone realised after they beat Ireland. So it's not a massive shock to me that they beat Scotland. We played ok in spells but they were just too strong. If I were a Springbok, I'd be conc...
