Re: Two posts on General Discussion today - is this a new record?

I was thinking how quiet it was and how few subjects of real interest for a few days now.
That said, if no one else in the room is saying much... best way to liven proceedings is start the conversation and hope others will join in..
Oh, I see what you did now 😁😂

Latest Steveo

Heres the latest custom creation for me from Steveo, its his Vintage Racer style but in 'Whisky' leather and looks awesome. Im looking forward to getting it on the watch.
Excellent communication and value for money - bespoke for not much more than an off the shelf offering.

Re: Deep sea diving for Oldies

Haha, good observation. Most of those that notice dont care 😁 Exception being close friends who will actively enquire as we support each others interests/passions and/or that rare breed that is fellow watch enthusiasts. Point is I wear what makes me happy (as Im sure everyone on here does), not what...

Re: Deep sea diving for Oldies

I wear a 600m diver in the 1m kiddies pool with my son. A driver/chrono when visiting Goodwood, Brands Hatch, even when spectating. Sometimes a GMT when traveling as it the extra orange hand makes me feel 'different' from everyone else on the Eurostar. A dress or vintage when going to the micropub 5...

Re: New Omega Bond watch

I love mesh bracelets but this looks a bit aftermarket (which is fine if you stick a Staib on a C60)... Its attractive but maybe trying a bit hard and £ vs value is not great. Can think of 2 amazing watches you could have for the same overall investment and one is a diver..

Re: Alternative strap for Legend

I quite like it TBH but possibly prefer a vintage black or croc with pale stitching to match dial... I think its a good look and am particularly fond of good brow straps at the moment mixing with both black and white/cream dials. Its been ages since i bought from them and your post has prompted me t...

Re: Misery seeking company

Great to hear that its been resolved so well and so quickly. Sounds like Steinhart have been very fast, efficient and good VFM.
Like H0rati0 ive contemplated Steinhart in the past but never purchased, sure I will at some point!
Lovely looking watch by the way!

Re: Incoming - consolidation watch

What's the thickness like as IIRC the black and silver versions are relatively thick so maybe that's the part of the reason and all I can think of why it didn't sell. The model generally has sold very well, especially the black/silver being the standard model. Only Harrods have struggled a bit (Pri...

Re: Incoming - consolidation watch

They do indeed, consensus is though, there was little social media/editorial coverage of this model unlike the Harrods Tudor BB or Calibre 11 white 'Siffert' Autavia and they didn't sell that fast/well.
