Re: FLE #8 design submissions

For me all C60s are out, despite some nice designs, due to the 9o'clock name. Any red or green C65 based designs are out as I don't like these colours on a watch. Any grey or black C65 based designs are out as IMO I already have my best possible black dialled watch. The blue GMTs are not allowed. Th...

Re: Rolex: OP39 v Explorer1

Goldsmiths in Reading were more than happy to tell me they wanted a purchase history or another purchase to go along with it before they'd part with one. Never a smugger muppet have I met. There's no chance I'll ever buy something I don't want just to obtain the right to buy the watch I actually wa...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Plain or graduated blue GMT please - at last it'd be a CW GMT with the name logo at 12. Slightly unsure of the different shade blue GMT hand - IMO doesn't work as well on the graduated blue shade shown as the dial is moving towards the green end of blue (if you know what I mean). Just about works on...

Re: Do I want an Omega?

An interesting observation above about the Speedy being a momento rather than a practical everyday watch... Though one perhaps not universally shared. Personally I find the Speedy eminently wearable and practical for day-to-day use. As I've said before on other posts I've worn my Speedy every day s...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Here's another Dartmouth variation I've been working on, with a light blue sunburst dial (hopefully looking a little more metallic in real life): https://i.imgur.com/MrQzBKU.jpg I like this although i think the bezel colour needs to be a bit closer to the shade of the dial. It's a bit like the Oris...

Re: Almost a year.

The last watch I bought was my Speedy on 12 October 2018. I've worn it every day since and the only other watch I've worn in that time has been my Samsung fitness watch at the gym. The Speedy seems to have made any other watch redundant even the 38mm C60 Trident 600 black/black which was previously ...

Re: FLE #8 design submissions

Like you my initial reaction was "too much yellow now" but looking again I think it's small details that's not quite right that gives that impression. I realise you've photoshopped what was asked but how about leaving the 20 in white as it looks strange to have that in yellow but no minute markers b...

Re: Advice please

I am not a watch fan and no little about watches and some have been kind and helpfulyet others are very rude. Are all forums full of men i presume so rude?? ?! I was going to...

If it is a hoax, what on earth would be the point? I can’t see what the hoaxer would get out of it.
if a hoax who can ever understand such idiocy. But they are the sad person and at least any Forum member that tried to help was the better person.

I imagine any nearly new Dartmouths appear, probably would quickly disappear.
Probably a bit too soon after general release yet.

I didn’t see any c65’s in the sale, did I just miss this or does is say something about their popularity?
There were some a few days ago - black, blue and olive.

Re: What would you tell yourself?

Buy a Moonwatch before anything else.

Then buy 2 x Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award watch when they were at £6k each. Keep 1 and sell the other at the current £20k, buy an Explorer and previous model Explorer II with the profit.
