The box is filling nicely, Dan. A good variety there, and an Omega such as you mention would be a good step up.
Thanks Steve. I think the next purchase will be a more luxury brand, eyes have been on Omega for a while but others do catch my eye, I blame this forum entirely!

SOTC - Danbailey007 - September 2019

As I've been a member nearly a year now I figured it was time to get one of these up. IMG_20190914_153618.jpg Starting top left and working along as that is the order I got them in - Avia - don't know too much about this watch, given to me when my grandad passed when I was only little. Never wear it...

Re: Can the forum format be changed?

I can see both sides of the argument, I like the idea of a like button for topics like the watch of the day as I'm not keen to clutter it up with replies but on the other hand I'm not overly fussed about if people like/dislike what I post. I don't use Facebook any more as I got bored of the mindless...

A C3 Malvern Chronograph Mk1 GWT or SWT.

One of my regrets is not buying this when I got my C5 Mk1 SWT ...

Are you talking about a single watch, or annual spend?

Either way, it depends on your circumstances.

What you can get away with, without feeling guilty, is probably the answer for most.
Agreed :thumbup:

Re: How Careful / Paranoid Are You About Wearing Your Best / Most Treasured?

I tend to only wear my better watches now so they seem to be worn for everything, meals out, work, garden work, golf the lot!

Admittedly my most expensive watch in my C60 bronze but it was still a lot of money and a big decision for me to get it.

Re: CWL of the day

My first CW back on the wrist today after too long. On a NATO that's slightly too big but wanted to see what if it worked.

Re: On the Trail of the Grail

i struggle with the concept of grails for myself. i may have bought in a little when i started, because my original budgets on getting a "nice watch" were very small compared to what i own now (think, $250-500 max). today the idea of a grail for me is stuck more in the "i don't think i would feel c...
