I didn’t. This was ‘in house information.’ Roll with it.

Re: How often do you see strangers wearing a CW?

^^^^ It’s probably covered by affinity bias which is one of the unconscious biases. Affinity bias is favouring people from the same socio economic background or someone with shared interests. I think everything is on the HR radar these days. I guess you can fairly accurately judge a person by the w...

Re: How often do you see strangers wearing a CW?

Not that often if I’m being honest. I did, however, interview a group of candidates for a position with my company and it came down to one of three candidates. There was a hair’s breadth between all of them. Now, I’m not saying that this was the decisive issue but, the two blingy Rolex wearers didn’...

Re: Re: C65 Aquitaine Collection - Released

I've read the discussion and I agree with what others have said regarding other brands such as Omega and Rolex using the name and the logo etc, and I agree with one member that these also reminded me of the Tag Autavia - it was the first thing that came into my head when I saw the release. I love t...

Re: Bremont Bamford S500

He's a rich bloke's son who has his own watch company - I don't think it's an homage to anything, more a collaboration. Isn't he just guy that ruins Rolexes and then sells them at a ridiculous premium? This watch is definitely not for me. I've never understood Cali dials, and after seeing this, I s...

Re: Bremont Bamford S500

I’m clearly ignorant of this but I think it’s a bit odd, an homage to a rich bloke’s son? I may wait for the Bremont Tamara Ecclestone, motorsport style of course.

Re: Rolex a discussion

Thanks Guys & Gals :thumbup: I'll openly admit that I wasn't too sure about the two-tone, well specifically the gold, and whether it would be too flash. I also had the dilemma of the price - the most expensive watch I have ever bought. But once I saw it was like "love at first sight" ...
