Tan lines

No, not of the bikini variety. Today I am wearing my Metris on the 'wrong' wrist to try to mitigate the appearance of the seemingly inevitable watch tan line. I am not the best at remembering to put the suncream on, despite my wife being of the pale & pasty & ginger habit and wearing factor 50 from ...

Re: F1 2020 | 2021 Motorsport Thread

Interesting. Ricciardo reminds a little of Button - worthy of a championship but in the wrong place at the wrong time. For button the planets aligned and he made the right call to stay with Brawn, the team held their nerve, and he had the edge over his team-mate. I think Ricciardo is going to need s...

Re: Recommendations for my incoming?

I'm really pleased the pics I posted of mine were helpful to in deciding to buy your Metris, Avo. I went for a contrasting strap precisely because of the 'is it the right blue?' issue so aptly illustrated above, but if you're not afflicted (good for you!) then I'm getting on well with my watchgecko ...

Re: Spot the watch! (Actually about America's Cup sailing)

It's good to see this kind of high tech stuff happening close to home.

Though of course it's your lot pushing up the prices at the Bridge Tavern :wink:

Quartz has its place, but that place is utility. Art and therefore emotive, it is not.
No. A fine piece of electronic engineering requires no less creativity and mastery of craft than a mechanical movement.

A Sellita SW200 is just as much a mass market commodity as a Seiko quartz movement.

Re: Meistersinger now on sale via CW site

Lovely shot. Glad you like the watch. I think for me the denim strap works better on the ivory model as it's picking up the accent colour rather than the dial. Anyone else got a 'CW' MeisterSinger yet? Here is mine on a 'sage grey' - that is, green - cordura from watchgecko. Much happier with the o...

Re: Meistersinger now on sale via CW site

Well this morning I was thinking if I don't have my dispatch email sometime today I'll have to chase it next week, and then of course it turned up via TNT! First impressions are good. Case shape is lovely. Dial colour is an inky deep blue, little bit darker than the website photos. Numerals and mark...
