Re: My new C65 Super Compressor inspired a photo shoot.

They are lovely photos. The leather strap looks ace, a great compliment to a captivating dial. I expect we'll be seeing more of you in forum member photo of the month. Enjoy your new timepiece.

Re: Personal Engraving?

5AB110C8-EB0B-4C36-B8D8-9B3486235FE0.jpeg I think an engraving can be really nice on a watch, if done well. But, it's a bit like a tattoo, you should be sure before starting out on the process. I got a custom made Elliot Brown watch for my 50th; I was in quite a bit of negotiation with the company ...

Re: MiniMpi - February 2021

First off, Ferg, if if there was the definition of a brand ambassador it's you! Shame there's a Rolex in there sullying an otherwise immaculate collection. :lol: :lol: My fav three: the C9 jumping hour; the C65 MK 1 LE and probably the C65 SH21 LE, so we share two the same. Your photos are always a ...

Re: A Man & His Watch

The sound was a rapid, metallic plink plink plink plink plink. A siren song which when amplified by the night and sung from my bedside table, gave me comfort in the dark, protected me from the monsters and sang the lullaby that sent me to sleep, every night for years. It was a constant through the ...

Re: Longines silver arrow

While we’re talking about all things Longines, here’s my one dislike of the whole package - the brand marketing focus on ‘elegance’ above everything else, including it seems, substance. The way they ooze on the website about their brand ambassadors, chosen simply for being ‘elegant’..... did my hea...

Re: Non CW of the Day

Third day in a row for this, I always find this watch incredibly accurate, has only lost 4 seconds in over 2 days. Not bad for a nearly 40 year old 7750. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210220/a93ecb4411fbfc4b52810c7b4ebd1b16.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I always admire this watch, I l...

Re: Longines silver arrow

I like that; simple and elegant. I'm learning a lot about Longines of late: their heritage and back catalogue. Being a part of the Swatch group they have access to premium ETA movements, some of which are made to an individual watche's spec making them pretty much IH movements. Their finishing and d...

Re: My Chris Ward Assessment

Well, I do not own a CW watch, but I very much enjoy being a participant of this forum. It is a great source of information for all things watch related. Although I do not own a CW, so have never been in a position to examine one of their watches in the flesh, they do seem to offer quite a lot of wa...

Lovely watch you got there, congrats. We better not gush too much about it, Sam might have second thoughts and ask for you to trade back (indian giver). :lol: :lol:

Re: Watches that have haunted you?

I saw that C9, 5day PR, in the sales corner too. I looked long and hard at that; I've got a huge tinkering for a Roman numeral dial. I just need something that would look equally at home with jeans and a T-shirt, which funnily enough I think that would have. So, not haunted by anything to date; long...

Re: Sinn 104 RS

One more thing; I'd spent a lot of time mulling over pictures of the 104 and thought I'd looked over everything in fine detail. Then I saw review on YouTube and the guy mentioned that a lot of people, including himself, had failed to notice the alternate sized numbers on the bezel. It was only when...

Doesn't that look just awesome in the sun, the grey really pops. Think I like that as much as the white and black variant, very nice.

Re: Sinn 104 RS

Love that watch so much, I think it's a classic. Personally I prefer it without the red seconds hand. The dial is perfection, just love the scrolling font used in 'Automatik'. I'd be curious to hear how you get on with the H-link bracelet? Some have said the buckle feels a bit cheap/pressed for such...
