Re: Kickstarter: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Just found this one, quite like it but December delivery (for me) a bit of a turn off.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/de ... nding_soon

28 days to go, fully funded but deals still available.

Re: Collector’s dilemma...Do you wear ‘em all?

I might need some sort of consolidation myself but after one or two culls recently, it will be very difficult. My second Formex arrived yesterday (total now at 13) and as per the Kickstarter thread I have 3 Krakens arriving in September. That would bring me very very close to my 17 watch box/winder ...

Re: Coffee machine woes.

For capsules I quickly went away from the real Nespresso pods at c£0.50 apiece. Aldi's Ristretto (16p per pod) is great - but can be hard to find as it gets snapped up. Otherwise I watch out for Amazon deals... last year L'or pods were there for £16/100 pods and currently I'm on Amazons own brand (...

Re: Mk3 Trident Christopher Ward logo/txt

Not sure about new logo, but never watched GOT. Took me awhile to realise what GOT stood for. So I’m glad it’s the final series.

Sick of people going on and on about it. It’s not even real, unlike Star Trek etc :lol: not a Trekkie By the way! Just trying to lighten the mood

Re: Mk3 Trident Christopher Ward logo/txt

Just as an aside, I visited Watchlords Forum (mentioned by Kip). What an awful place. Layout and design hard on the eyes. Not to mention, so many members using the F-Word. By the way, I’m not a prude. I have used it myself at football matches etc. But never felt the need to use it whilst writing. Ei...

Looks like Glycine has a new Sub coming out..
I quite like the look of this one.

But delivery for December would put me off. I’ve hated waiting for my Kickstarter watches, and this has put me off a little of venturing there again.

Just my impatience showing through though.

Re: Stunning Images of the Mk 3 GMT

Whilst not agreeing with everything he said, he did confirm my fears over that awful strap. . if you believe him. I prefer to wait, allow a little running in time and see what people here think. Did he not say he had the watch for a couple of months. Enough running in time I think. Are you waiting ...

I was very tempted by the Elite but hesitant about the new hybrid strap. I would’ve snapped it up on a bracelet.

So his review has saved me from ordering and returning it.

Re: The Best Nato Strap Money Can Buy?

I hate NATO straps :D

However, I have this one on my Bulova Moonwatch. https://www.watchitallabout.com/product ... iece-nato/

Great quality and has QR pins. Comes in 20mm or 22mm.

Josh also has the usual one piece too.

Lawrence, Bahnstormer_vRS, H0rati0, and 0uatiOW, Thanks for the feedback gents. Perhaps what I will try next time is a more descriptive intro to a link so TheBeatles and others who might not care for such content will get a better idea and pass. That might be the ticket to ride.
