Re: King Charles’ watch of choice

I also like Charles' approach of "buy once, buy well". It's certainly a sustainable approach as quality items outlast those that are more cobbled together. I've always sought to buy the best quality of anything I was looking for, cash flow permitting of course. Des I’ve taken this approac...

Re: Problem with my C63 - is this covered by 60/60?

The question you need to ask is: Did you get a dopamine hit when you bought it? That was its purpose and when you need that dopamine hit again- get some new straps for it (why do you think I have over 20 straps for my Reverso - including many I will never use😄) The hunt, the clicking on ‘purchase’ a...

Re: Straps for Reverso

The Reverso takes a lot of different straps, and I’ve indulged myself quite a bit. 1AE11DEC-2AFF-4B02-A783-54715D11DECF.jpeg I love the orangey one- where is that from if you don’t mind me asking? I’m running out of colours that I don’t own so orange could be the next purchase 😄 Great selection of ...

Re: Balancing smartwatch and ‘watch watch’

I got a cheap fitness tracker from Huawei before going down the Apple Watch Series 7 route, for 6-7 months I double waisted but it was just too big and looked weird to me- I felt self conscious and a few people a week would comment on it. Another problem I had was that my main watch was a Reverso wh...

Booked another trip to Scotland and saw this photo from the last time I was on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

Re: Movements

For me it depends on the price and purpose of the watch. I’m happy with a miyota/seiko in a watch that will be worn infrequently or as a bit of a beater. I’m happy with a selitta or eta if it’s regulated and up to a grand or two but I was put off the IWC mark petit Prince due to the movement as £4-5...

Re: Non CW of the Day

I usually stop wearing a watch the moment I decide to sell it, but this one wears so nicely I find myself keep coming back to it. Maybe I need to read that as a sign that I’ll come to regret it… like so many others that have gone 😄🤦🏻‍♂️

Re: Straps for Reverso

Thanks for the link- will have a look this evening 👌 The RW and Longines don’t get any wrist time -but do share the same lug width- all of these have had an outing on the Reverso though! The quick release straps make it so nice and easy to change depending on what I’m wearing and my initial fears of...

Challenge accepted 😄 (I will dig some more out tomorrow!). From mountain climbing, in shorts by the pool, on night busses wearing trainers, Christmas trees and occasionally with a suit… it always fits the bill.

Re: What's the brand that you no longer have but...

I’ve had a lot, the Rolexes and speedy I only really miss due to the price hikes, but the one that I genuinely miss looking at and likely won’t get again was Grand Seiko SBGW235. At the time I felt like it was too similar to the Reverso in that i couldn’t see an occasion when one would do what the o...

Re: Military Watch recommendations

Not sure if you’re specifically after British military but I think the Laco fliegers offer tremendous value for money and something a bit different.

Re: New Tudor Release 39mm Pelagos

I really like it but currently have the Seiko SPB213 and as Stef said, not sure I like it £2800 more (as I’d likely get about £700 by selling this Seiko).

Also not sure whether to wait for a better adjustment on the bb58 clasp that surely can’t be far away.
