Re: Tribus Watches

I thought setting up the new company was the only way they could untie their hands from the Liverpool deal to get access to the stock, which was being held by the manufacturer? (I may have completely misunderstood) By doing that they were able to go through with the fire sale(s) to recoup enough to ...

A wee bird house that caught my eye in The Hermitage forest in Perthshire yesterday.

Re: The Perfect Summer Hat ***NERD ALERT***

It's crazy hot in Scotland right now (although still a good bit below the hell they're getting down South!) and as a hairy chap I really don't get on with the heat... So packed the kids in the car and drove 90 minutes North to Perthshire for a wee walk in some cool, dark woods...and of course dug ou...

Re: New Zuludiver Endurance Explorer

Love the look of these, I suspect they'd also look great on the Highlander! Consider me tempted!

Re: The Definitive Nerd Thread

Unfortunately, the OnMyWrist app leaves out us that change up during the day. You can only enter one watch per day (at least when I last looked at it). I contacted the developer about it and he said it was something he was looking into but didn't have any timeframes. The good news is that mine shou...

Re: The Definitive Nerd Thread

There were a few posts around the new year of similar charts which is what made me want to do the same - annoyingly there's no Android equivalent of OnMyWrist that I can find! :(

Re: Tribus Watches

Yeah, I think I've mentioned before but I'm far more willing to forgive the lack of lume on my TRI-03 as it's a dress watch, with gorgeous stainless steel hands, but the TRI-02 is a field watch and there's something about that which just suggests that it should have lume. To be honest though it's th...

Tribus TRI-02 on their 303 Squadron Zula Alpha strap that I picked up in their strap sale (and posted a bit more about in the Tribus thread) - this watch continues to be an absolute favourite!

Re: Tribus Watches

I promised ages ago that I'd share some pictures of the Tribus Zulu Alpha strap, but then couldn't find any spring-bars and spent ages wearing my new C63 at the exclusion of everything else and it slipped my mind! Anyway, finally received some spring bars in the post yesterday so popped it onto my T...

Re: My Oris trio

Some gorgeous looking watches in this thread - I've long admired Oris from afar and would love to add one to my collection - I'm a big fan of their Big Crown ProPilot - there's just something about its simplicity that jumps out at me (and I've said before, I'm a sucker for a big crown!). Maybe one d...

Re: Does my C63 math add up?

The real question with these maths(!) is... what colour are you getting?!?

(Also, it'll surely cost more if they have any Highlanders left over ;) )

Re: The Definitive Nerd Thread

ha! I bet I could get the phone talking to the joystick at least :lol: But doubt Google or Apple would let me publish an app that was meant to be played while driving! I reckon the easier next steps though would be to wire up a system to spill oil or spikes behind the car though - I bet building an ...

Re: The Perfect Summer Hat ***NERD ALERT***

This might well be my favourite thread in quite a while :lol: I seldom wear hats, but do have a strange knack of buying them whilst on holiday, wearing them non-stop, and then losing them in the back of a cupboard somewhere - I suspect it's the Scottish weather just isn't suited to hat wearing, so I...
