Re: Footycrazy straps

I have the lizard (above) and as per Guys comments: leather and stitching is good quality.
The lizard (scales) may eventually wear a bit but I would not expect this to be before the usual life expectancy on a leather strap.
Put it this way, I will be buying more.. hope it helps!

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the cream coloured strap but it’s really classy, and I think would look great on any blue or black coloured dial.

Re: Trident/C60 Bezel question

Thanks guys and good to hear from you Gary (hope the road trip was OK). Yep Ive had a movement swap in the past (completed by watchmaker for me) and getting the right retaining ring was a challenge. Going to give it a try myself this time. However, my new(ish) business has hit a big bump (Covid-19) ...

Re: 15% off Tridents

I also dont have an issue with a sales offer at all, I was a being a little sarcastic about the 15 emails (there really were 15 though). From a Marketing perspective the multi emails is a big no... offer vs spam, but hey these things happen. Wording and message wasnt great or massively enticing but ...

Re: Where have you travelled to today?

Amalfi coast, driving a little hired speedboat down the coast to a deserted bay where I had lunch: olives, cheese, bread, hams etc washed down with a lovely crisp white.

Re: Coronavirus

Currently in a Perth hotel, as our second cruise has been cancelled en-route due to ports closing due to COVID-19. Fortunately we had only travelled from one side of Australia to the other, so rather than having to fly home from Mauritius or South Africa, we’ve hired a car and are driving back home...
