Re: For sale section is really limited

You know its not 50 topics just 50 posts. You dont have to come up with 50 new topics the posts can be on any thread. I think if you participate on the forum for even 2 weeks you could get what you need. If you could just post straight away i'm sure there would be more sales where there were issues,...

Re: Clearance Returns

Are these watches really "..having been used as press and photography samples..."? The number that get sold and the frequency of these sales leads me to believe that is a disingenuous description. Most of them have to be returned watches, right? I always assumed that most were customer returns that...

I found it a little too tempting [emoji854]
It's a very nice looking watch, if I didn't already have 2 on the way I might have got it myself

Re: C65 sh21 bronze v c60 bronze

Its like many things especially watches - you pay more and more for marginal improvements over the cheaper option. Is it worth it? Only you can decide that. For some the CW quartz range gives them the 'same' watch at a lower price for others we see no value in the quartz. Similar applies for the SH2...

Re: Rolex: OP39 v Explorer1

Maybe it's advancing age (but still 20 years younger than AVO)... You can go off people... :grandpa: However, the more I think about the Explorer, the more I can’t stop seeing this blue Santos. https://www.cartier.co.uk/content/dam/rcq/car/17/09/95/1/1709951.png.scale.1600.high.santos-de-cartier-wa...

Re: Rolex: OP39 v Explorer1

I recently picked up an Explorer and did consider the OP39 (liked the white face) as well although my local AD didn't have either for me to try on. I decided on the explorer was told I should be able to get it before xmas but actually only took 4 weeks. I had zero history with the AD and there was n...

Seems like the prices moved quite a bit from the 2009 to 2010 list above.
Rob, are you sure you aren’t comparing the 2009 to the 2012 lists above, explains better the increase.
Yes you are right... Seems I can't read properly!

Re: Dress watch - Help me decide

Vintage watches tend to be smaller and thinner. Anything ever caught your eye? I wear my Seiko Chariot quite often for dress up and it's ultra slim so no problem at all slipping it under a cuff. That is very nice, classic clean and simple design. looks very thin too. This caught my eye but its way ...
