Re: Coronavirus Vaccine.

I had the Moderna booster yesterday. I felt okay until last night then my arm became sore; I slept fairly well but feel washed out and sort of aching this morning, quite similar to my first jab. If that is any guide I should probably feel better by the end of the day. There are plenty of nice thing...

I haven't taken this one out of the watch box in a while.

Re: C63 Colchester

I'm a former "Bootneck" and proud of it. i'm not fussed about the Lympstone, but have no problem with any non "Royal" buying one. If it tickles your boat then dig out and enjoy. I couldn't buy a "Colchester" para watch because I wouldn't want to feel like a "Pongo...

Re: Forthcoming - Elliot Brown Bloxworth 3HD

And.... just when you're ready to order a new Bloxworth HD, they come out with another great colorway to make the choice even harder :D

Re: Tribus Orders

Ordered mine on Wednesday, it was despatched on Thursday and left the UK on Friday. Since then, nothing. Tracking has gone dead, but it might be stuck in customs. Not panicking. It was an unplanned purchase so I'm in no rush (so long as it gets here by Christmas and my wife has a gift to give to me...

Re: Forthcoming - Elliot Brown Bloxworth 3HD

And another new color this morning. I really like this one, including the Sunray brushed center of the dial.

New Formex Reef - With interchangeable bezel.

I don't know anything about the Formex brand, but this new version of the Reef dive watch looks interesting. You have the ability to change the bezel by hand without any tools and you can buy extra bezels in different colors for $160 each. This would be a great idea for CW to implement. Here is a vi...

Re: Rolex a discussion

Just a thought, perhaps Keanu getting his hands on five Subs was direct from Rolex themselves (who would have seen the great marketing opportunity and association with a Holywood blockbuster) rather than from a dodgy AD. Luckily I didn't have to do any special favours to get my sub back in 2017 oth...

😂 It gets worse- he can get tables at any restaurants and date hot women regular stiffs can’t too! Regular stiffs can date hot women, they just need to be better looking than me :lol: The bottom line is Rolex is full of crap. If you are special, you can easily get your hands on five submariners any...

Re: Rolex a discussion

I am not interested in playing the Rolex game to see if I am special enough to buy a new Rolex at retail. As a regular working stiff who could afford a steel submariner at retail, apparently that is not good enough. According to Rolex AD's I need to be able to buy other watches from a Rolex AD first...

Re: Forthcoming - Elliot Brown Bloxworth 3HD

Alex @ EB had told me there were other colourways in the offing which I'd probably like; I'm tempted by the Slate Grey but having got the Founders Edition already I'll sit tight for now. Guy Along with the new orange color EB added recently, they have just added this new color. They describe it as ...

Re: C63 Colchester

I have no problem with anybody buying or wearing one either. I, personally, wouldn’t be comfortable with it myself, that’s all. Plus, Ant Middleton screaming ‘Walter F*****g Mitty’ about an inch from my face doesn’t really appeal :lol: :lol: :lol: I agree with Chris, because these are for sale to t...

Re: Minis

Thank you all for the comments. I should have figures for the possible option pack upgrade and then make my final decision then and order the car. Interesting article on the future of Mini. I thought it might help you plan any future purchases Ferg. https://www.topgear.com/car-news/electric/heres-y...

Re: Your help needed

My personal experience is that it comes down to looks and and feel for me. The complications, COSC, power reserve, day/date etc. don't make any real difference to me because of the way I use watches. I have a C65 GMT, and can't recall the last time I set the GMT hand, but I like the look of the extr...
