Re: Are people warming?

The Aquitaine range itself looks ok and I prefer the bezel:dial ratio over the C65 diver, but I'm far from a fan of 'device' only, even in its applied form (C7 range). For me it screams microbrand and that kills this model for me. Nothing to do with letting people know what I'm wearing, just that I ...

Re: The Lottery Watch Game

A bit thin on the ground, but thanks to those who put forward their suggestions. @suicidal_orange - really interesting dial work from a brand I wasn't familiar with. But not overly keen on the case shape and I just can't warm to green dials, despite it being my favourite colour. @iain - as above re ...

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

As to your better half, I reckon that she may say that it would be preferable if the date was replaced with a numeral at 3. If that doesn’t cast doubt in your mind….. I think it could be improved with an applied "3" and a borderless colour matched date window, offset around 4-5 o'clock. I...

That's about as perfect a strap match you'll get Steve. Cracking :clap:

I could be in trouble with the better half here. I've got the bug ... badly!

Re: The Lottery Watch Game

Sorry, I did say I’d wait for a day or two, but a flurry entries arrived by last night so I made a selection. While too late to be judged, I’d still be interested to know what your choice was. I had written a response before you'd chosen, but it didn't submit. I've got previous; probably pressed ba...

Odd, I thought I'd posted a response for Iain :?

For Guy, I'll stick with the chrono theme, but something a bit left field.

Re: Return of Brown Super Compressor?

^^^ I'm sure the refund was because it was offered 'on sale' so soon after release.

People were offered replacement dials or refunds iirc, I'm not sure whether partial was offered as a form of compensation because of the above offer.

Re: Non CW of the Day

This arrived today. It's had a life, but most importantly, it came with original box, papers, manuals and even swing tag. Tough to find them untouched these days, nevermind with a full set! Even had a solid link oyster included along with the folded Seiko bracelet. :D https://i.ibb.co/fpjCXg4/PXL-20...

Re: The Lottery Watch Game

I'll go with this rose gold Gronefeld Principia auto. Elegant, yet with a modern, sporty(ish) twist that may suit Stephen's tastes me thinks.

Re: Bremont Bamford S500

Some inspiration taken from the Seiko SRPD81K1 by the looks. Plonk one of the many, widely available ceramic relief inserts on the following and you'd have a similar look on a much smaller budget :thumbup: https://www.topwatch.com/images/products/watches/146/48312/5391/1622022383-1.jpg I do very muc...
