Re: Bracelets for C60 Abyss and C60 Lympstone

I'm seriously tempted for my Abyss! All my recent watch purchases have been on straps so would make a nice change.

Re: Non CW of the Day

Decided to dig this out for a bit, still thinking it might be a candidate for moving on.

Re: Levels of recognition?

I'm guilty of watch spotting (glasses/sunglasses and footwear too) but rarely discussed with the person. I find a lot of people nowadays either don't wear a watch at all or it's a smart watch and they are generally not worth talking about.

Re: CWL of the day

Been this for a while now, on an Elliot Brown utility strap that I think suits this better than my EB Holton due to the slimmer C60 case. Now to enjoy a week off work and a few days with just the better half while little one is at nursery! That's nice, very stealthy. Just curious, how do you get on...

Re: CWL of the day

Been this the past week, including my daughter's first birthday and my first return to the office since early March.

Congrats! Having previously bought from Guy something I wasn't sure he would part with I'm getting worried about him :lol:

Re: Watches and Coffee? Unique Collaboration?

I've seen this a lot as I follow Elliot Brown on Instagram, I'd be tempted if I didn't already have a Holton Professional that I acquired from a fine gent on here :D

Why am I not surprised you've ordered one Guy!

Re: What's in the strap drawer daddy?

I like the elastic one, would look good with my C60 bronze! Where did you get it?

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

Is there more chance of a discount if you pay upfront or is it better to use their finance offers?

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

Getting a discount is mostly self-confidence and the perceived interest from the salesperson. I think it helps to wear a watch (a nice one if possible and a CW counts as they won't have seen one before). Spend time show interest and then just ask. You are armed with the fact that you know that disc...

Re: Speedmaster gossip from the Omega boutique

Damn, I was hoping to have more time to save for an SMP especially after the white dials that have appeared here lately!

I've never bought from an AD before, how do you guys manage to sweet talk your way to a discount? If I purchase soon it's likely to be from Goldsmiths or similar.

This probably won't help then... 210 W 210 BG.jpg Well that's just mean isn't it! What are your thoughts on both? Sorry Dan. :oops: I loved the blue/grey when I bought it but I think the white dial has taken its place in my heart. The blue/grey is the "shoutier" of the two. It's a watch that begs t...
