Re: Are people warming?

You know, the more I see the twin flags, the more I think it could have been just a single cross. It's still representative of both countries. Maybe that symbol wasn't available as a trade mark. I like Ryan's example with the word name underneath the TF. I can't help thinking an underlying aim was t...

Re: CW has quietly changed the warranty for the better

. The sixty day return is a little different. It really shouldn't be "wear it as if you own it", but then still send it back, but I am not sure how they can control that. Where has the 60 day return ever said that? Its always been that it must be returned in 'new' i.e. unworn condition, a...

Re: CW has quietly changed the warranty for the better

Given the proud statement of the 60/60 guarantee, it was a faux pas for the 60 month warranty to come with an asterisk,band it's right that it's a no quibble statement. The sixty day return is a little different. It really shouldn't be "wear it as if you own it", but then still send it bac...

Re: I’m pretty sure my classroom is possessed!

That's a great spot Andrew. That's like the face on Mars at Cydonia. Mind you, I think there really is a face on Mars. I take Graham Hancock pretty seriously.

Re: Is the logo changing soon?

I notice the Super Compressor has just been re-released with the new flag only logo. Must mean that's what they're settling on? I'm not sure it works on that particular dial as it's already busy enough! I think it looks okay but still glad I have the older version (even with the off center text :lo...

Re: The Wordle Thread

Made quordle very tough for myself. Wasted 2 guesses on Q2, so ended up needing to make the last three words on 7,8 and 9 to keep a streak going.

Re: The Non-Curmudgeons Corner

I went to a medical appointment in Cork today, before I did a bit of shopping. Thought I'd pop in to the local H&M with the intention of picking up a few cheap, colourful T-shirts for the summer. It seemed that a lot of the pastel T's had designs of one type or another on their fronts. I did ho...

Re: Happy birthday suicidal_orange!

Wow. Sorry to hear the update orange. I should talk to Kip about changing your forum name. :D

I hope your year gets rather better from here though.

I just thought I would listen to Sixteen Tons to revitalise me. Here's a nice version. I hope it helps. https://youtu.be/A9kb4-wUAU4

Re: C60 Trident Pro 600

I do place great store by the "swiss made" at 6 o'clock. Perhaps Chinese watches with miyotas and NH35s inside are as good but I on the whole I am more comfortable with swiss. When you see what CW (and others) can provide for £1000 say, it does make me wonder what a "luxury" watc...

Re: An interactive guide to how a mechanical watch works

It's clear, but as you go through it, it gets more and more complicated. I think you would need a lot of time assembling and disassembling watches to really understand. Then I recall instructional videos by Mark Lovick (I think) demonstrating how to repair a bent spring, or showing how to trim a cro...
