Re: Worried I’m getting old!

Update: I've cancelled the order! Not because I don't want to look at the watch but, due to having a value over £5000, the retailer have emailed me this morning to ask for photo verification - send a picture of me holding my driving licence/passport to verify. I know most might ask why but it's not ...

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

The new Gold bezel version is actually quite smart but the price is silly for just that little edition of gold. Ok much prefer the blue version with bracelet so much so I bought one! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201130/1f18a00194581cf58317bd03cca693f0.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2020...

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

Well guys, thanks for all your input. Steve (AVO) did hit the nail on the head with me saying several times there are no rules so, I should really take my own advice. So, I’ve ordered a Zenith to look at - the worse that can happen is that I don’t like it as much as I think I will and have to return...

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

Got to be the Zenith to try on, against the others on your list. The Omega is too 'normal', which you have in your existing three ( BBR and 2 Bremont). Old? Why does considering a Gold, or part Gold, watch make you old. A case of each to their own, surely (I've got 20 years on you Chris and have no...

Re: Worried I’m getting old!

I think you are looking at watches that have a classic style, Chris. In 10 years time, you won't be looking at these thinking you made a mistake, although I do prefer the chronomaster without the open heart surgery. So, basically, you’re saying in 10 years time I will be old so I may aswell get in ...

Worried I’m getting old!

Before we start, I know I’m gonna get some stick for this but I’m a big boy and can take it! I’m getting as though I really can’t be bothered rotating watches etc... and have been steadily reducing the numbers for a while. I have 3 ‘keepers’ - my Black Bay Red and my 2 Bremonts (ATLT1-C/PB and MB2 w...

Re: C60 Lympstone

It must be me, but I really don't 'get' the whole watch box thing. Not just you. A smaller box with a nice leather travel case would be much better. Add me to the list of agreeing with this, I’ve commented a few times in the past a watch roll or travel case would be far better than a box you just c...

Re: Page and Cooper

Don’t ask why but I’ve been flicking through the shopping channels! Jonathan is on ideal world channel promoting ‘nubeo watches’ - to hear him talk they are better than Patek! - it was comedy gold to listen to the same old spiel from his Page and Cooper you tube videos; ‘I’ve worn one of these mysel...

Re: Non CW of the Day

I have been at work today and thought I would wear this for Tanks-giving. :escape: EA8EAC26-6B69-4974-9166-0A1A84A325E5.jpeg Love it! Does anyone do Roman numerals better than Cartier. A timeless classic. Des I have to agree - I'm not a Roman Numerals fan but, on a Cartier, they just seem so right.

TGV can be a very polarizing figure, but I think he does great videos

Re: The cult of Seiko

Seiko can be all things to most men and have been quietly for a fair while. Just look at this (i still would love to have it) Plus my mrs got me a seiko for our engagement 28 years ago and it is still working perfectly!
