Re: Tribus Watches

My tribi arrived yesterday- the my dog sighs and tri-04. The MDS was planned to be a bit of art/investment rather than a watch I will wear but the tri-04 was a bit of a gamble… here’s my thoughts: The packaging made me laugh as someone had previously mentioned it being like something from eBay- I ha...

Re: IWC service / repair / info

I use a guy called Joel Ferreira -TicToc man in Hatton garden (he’s actually just moved to a street next to HG). For a relatively straight forward movement I’d be happy to take it to any established repairer/servicer with a good reputation or endorsements. I was quoted £370 for a repair on an older ...

Re: Tribus Orders

I wasn't struck with any of the Tribus colours to be honest. I didn't fancy the salmon or teal. I didn't think even the cream was particularly well chosen. They should have had a plain white, though. It's the same with the cotton candy colours that Oris sell, and even the new Rolex colours, althoug...

Technically this falls under CW of yesterday but I’m sure the mods/admins can forgive me 😁 DDF2A35F-FE7D-40B5-8AA0-C22F46AB6F4A.jpeg CF385F98-8C62-49B5-9605-20B7298643BE.jpeg EF4BBEA4-8BA7-4CC6-9A57-972ACC069ADC.jpeg A4406483-ADFD-47D0-A517-6AC68EAEE958.jpeg BB3D2017-2C11-4EA4-906B-DFBBC52D386E.jpeg...

Over in Ireland so obviously needed a green watch… 7EE99A9F-6E8D-41E6-ACE9-0F577AD388DC.jpeg 56F0EFCC-AD09-4505-946C-A70C62AB4B84.jpeg A26F9C9D-49CB-4377-8019-3B0C051B852B.jpeg 5870CE22-4570-4035-84F4-4AF752CA831C.jpeg AAB778F8-3B99-4B59-B30C-19936A318CC2.jpeg 9B9BF875-E724-4492-9B37-707E2BEB565A.jp...

Re: Cheap Speedmaster

It’s not the new one, it’s the older sapphire version

Decent price nonetheless but not unusual for eBay I don’t think. Always a bargain for the brave on there 😄

Re: Tribus Orders

I ordered two on 3rd November and haven’t had a dispatch confirmation or tracking number. Glad some people are getting theirs but communication is dreadful- a standard blanket email after ordering explaining likely delays could have changed that.

Re: Meistersinger Metris crown/winding

Thanks 👍🏼 That’s good to hear, if i invariably end up selling it (like I do pretty much any watch that wasn’t a present) I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t selling a problem- especially as it’s still under warranty. But equally I can’t be bothered to send it in for a repair/service If I’m just bein...

Re: Tribus now in administration

With so much buyer protection I’m still hopeful and intrigued to see what the tri-04 is like. I got it on PayPal credit so even if they don’t honour it, I won’t be paying them for something if it doesn’t turn up 😄 so I’m risk free 😂

Meistersinger Metris crown/winding

I know a few people on the forum have this watch and was wondering what peoples experience winding theirs is like? Mine is tight and harder to wind than any of my other watches (maybe any that I can remember owning), I initially put it down to having a small crown but am now wondering whether it’s a...

Re: Tribus now in administration

Yeah I’m strangely optimistic and paid with PayPal credit for the 4 months 0% so I should be covered either way. I think their communication is really bad around it all but maybe that’s related to business/financial shenanigans I don’t understand. I know there’s certain breaks/loans and money availa...

Me too but their pricing was so “optimistic” that I figured it wasn’t too bad

Re: Tribus Orders

First one has landed on ebay And so it begins 😁 (The last one sold on there was a tri-04 that went for less than the sale price unused, £425 I think it was) That is a pretty low price for the spec though Yeah I paid £550 with the discount for the orange version, so would have snapped it up and canc...
