Re: Expensive ETA

My original Black Bay is an ETA, Bremont based on ETA, IWC have ETA movements (I believe downers has an ETA in it). There are many more that could be mentioned. I don’t see the issue, but a lot of ‘WIS snobs’ look down their nose at them. I prefer ETA/Selitta base due to cheaper and easier servicing...

^^^Chris, you got me....I definitely do.
What is it about this 'addiction' that makes people with Panerai, Rolex, Tudor, Omega, Bremont, Grand Seiko etc.. 'have to have' a 500 odd quid quartz?! Makes no common sense, but makes perfect sense to us :lol: :lol:

Re: Farmer Quartz Chrono

^^ So much so in fact, that I’ve placed an order for one... [emoji57][emoji850] Wow, that was fast :shock: I must admit I too am tempted as I don't have a chrono in the collection and have been looking for a legible one for a while. This might fit the bill. Interestingly the video on the Farer webs...

Tan Barenia leather for me Chris...

My delivery will be a good two weeks later than yours due to distance though... [emoji51]
My leather option would be perforated Jeans, and I'm torn between blue or orange rubber. Decisions Decisions!

My last visit down there in October I didn’t see anything, but probably because I’m usually having more fun knocking people over walking into me that aren’t looking where they a...

Re: Manchester GTG - Chat with Chris - Saturday 27th April 2019

Hope everyone that goes has a good time. I’m disappointed I can’t make it due to timings. I was really looking forward to getting Guy up to do the Macarena, as requested by several on you tube in Edinburgh! :lol:
