Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

At the moment, I’m not going for the FLE. But it’s interesting that me and a few others who are not in, are commenting the most.

Not a criticism, just an observation.

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

Because, human nature being what it is, rather than just going down a list checking every box, people will tend to pick a few of the many in an attempt to influence the vote for their favorites. At least, that's what I would do. I don't see ANY downside in running another round. Fair point Phil, an...

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

And I'm not sure that picking up the football and going home is the right way forward. Surely the top 10 designs (or 5 or 7 or whatever should now go to the next round to let members decide if they would be prepared to change their vote if their first option(s) didn't make it through? In life it is...

Re: A few wrist shots from the Bristol GTG

Steve,

Thanks for the photos.

What’s the overall legibility like on The Abyss. In general, photos make it look ok. But I’d appreciate your thoughts on it.

I’m leaning towards that over the Anthropocene, as I like a bit of red.

Re: When will I get my watch?

Not too bothered about when I get my CW as it was a bit of an impulse buy, but it really is too much sometimes. Not even sure they’re embarrassed about poor CS etc anymore. As it was an impulse buy and still no despatch notification, I’ve decided to cancel order. Cancellation confirmed by CW. Keep ...

Re: Apple Watch Series 5

My daughter has one and when she showed me all the features, I was genuinely tempted. It’s so clever and intuitive.

She loves it and is so much better in every way than her Series 4.

There are some nearly new dive watches listed under Watches -> Clearance. At 30% off, they’re pretty good value... and they go very rapidly.
Clearance Section now gone.

Re: When will I get my watch?

I have received a watch from our upside down friend Gary in less time than this! There is absolutely no excuse for this. I have bought comfortably over a zillion watches and as far as I recall they are all despatched same day or next day. The only watches when this has not happened have been from (...

Re: When will I get my watch?

I ordered and paid for a watch from CW clearance last week. Received my confirmation email and nothing since. I have emailed them with no response, how long does it usually take to get the watch? :oops: I ordered one, but credit card not yet charged until despatch. Nothing as yet other than email c...

Seemed like he phrased it perfectly well. Clear to me that there are some designs he'd buy and he's voted accordingly.
Hence my recantation and (if needed) apology. :)
Same here, just a discussion with absolutely no slight or disrespect intended. If I misread, it’s my fault.

Re: FLE #8 Design Vote

Are we so blasé about some of the (I think) fabulous designs that have been done that we’re not, as a group, willing to ante up and buy them and meet a meagre run of 25? I’m disappointed... I really wanted to see an FLE produced, even if it’s not one that I personally will buy. With the greatest of...

Re: Rugby World Cup

Poor game in general, nervy and tense throughout. Loads of handling errors by both sides.

However, because of that, I couldn’t take eyes off screen as it could’ve gone either way.


Tough on Wales, but congrats Springboks.

I remember some big named companies wouldn’t supply Argos, because they were so cheap and considered somewhat down market.

Re: Rugby World Cup

Steve, I think we’ll have to agree to disagree. Maybe in teaching circles, a smirk. But most of papers are referring to OF smiling on the big screen. Apparently he winked at Aaron Smith (AB Scrum half) too, who stated he was trying to scare OF. Which is why I disagree with it. Why do they get to fir...
