Re: When the wife

I once, by mistake, referred Mrs Mc as "the wife". The result was, shall we say, frosty. However, I managed to worm out of it by explaining that the term referred to the one and only, unique lady who chose the marry me. Despite that, I have never since risked using that descriptor in her p...

Re: Most unique watch you own

I have 3 watches that can be described as unique in that I machined the cases, backs and crowns and made the dials.
I also have 1939 Omega in a gold Dennison cushion case in exceptionally good condition. This was bought new for my Dad

Re: C65 Super Compressor Timing Accuracy

Timed mine at - 0.6 secs per day over 1 month when it was about 2 months old.
It was a manual check, ie no machine timer, so it is fairly crude

Re: Oops, how did this happen?

Have to confess I hadn't been looking at another Omega and wasn't even aware of this particular model. I had gone there to look at a Longines heritage model, but they didn't have the specific one I was interested in. In passing, I did look in the Omega display, but defaulted to speedmaster and seama...

Re: Oops, how did this happen?

Lovely watch, congratulations! You must be chuffed. I'm intrigued by the polished center link within the strap, where it butts up to the case. It is part of the strap, isn't it? It is indeed Guy, standard straps will fit nicely. Chuffed? Doesn't come close! Gaf beat me to it, but yes, they are poli...

I've just shown this thread to the Mrs... didnt work as her response was simply "thats nice, you've got enough watches though".
Maybe you should have bought her jewellery and a watch before showing her😉
