Re: The Non-Curmudgeons Corner

Well. Last night ... I've never wanted time watching any Glastonbury on the BBC. However last night channel hopping I came across the Prodigy set at the Isle of Wight, (sky arts) and was pretty transfixed by it. I recorded Johnny Marr, and the Pretenders afterwards.

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

And another thing. I've had 4 recent problem orders in the past couple of weeks. 2 with AliExpress and 2 with eBay. I've hardly ever had a problem before.

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

What a waste of money. I just bought a lucky dip euromillions ticket and the numbers include 13, 14, 15. Obviously no chance with those.

Re: More CW quality problems.

I expect calling CW watch boxes coffins doesn't convey quite the right message. :D

Re: WatchIt! Watch Fair, Solihull.

I'm going on Saturday. No 1 son is at a BBQ birthday party, but Mrs Jafo may join me to make sure I don't spend any money.

Do you think the growing number of alternative colours will dampen resale values of the original blue and green options?

Re: CW and Andrew Morgan Collab??

Not sure if they have jumped the gun but it’s now up on the Time and Tide website.

Re: Watch Tracker App

If anyone wants an access watch database, drop me a pm and an email address, and I will send you one. It stores details of watches, and your wear stats. Not protected in any way, so you can tweak away.
