Re: sealander black or white

I can't get too wrapped around the axle on pretty minor timing differences on a mechanical watch. If I wanted perfection I'd buy a quartz movement (and save some money)

Re: Are people warming?

That’s the one I got as well. I’ve been kind of sad I didn’t order a GMT.

Re: Are people warming?

I really like the Aquitane - I'm considering it for my first CW watch. I'm hoping to be able to visit the showroom in the next few weeks and check them out in person - keen to see what that sapphire dome is like IRL, and if the bronze is as good as it looks in person. I find it a bit odd (and disap...

Debated back and forth for a while but pulled the trigger on the blue Tissot PRX Powermatic 80.

Re: Decent video of the Aquitaine models

I love that guy’s videos. I was on the fence about a Tissot PRX and his video pushed me to get one. Really well done.

Re: Purposeful regression

I love the look of your hi fi system. I went through a phase of getting rid of my turntable/kit and selling a lot of my records only to get back into it about 7-8 years ago and start buying some of the records I had previously sold. Prices have gone up a bit! I think I was drawn back when I found s...

Re: Purposeful regression

Impressive work on your hifi stereo system. Yes I'm old enough that stereo is still part of my vocabulary. Can you share some of the specs for your speakers. They remind me of some of the Tekton Design models. With all of that internal volume and two large woofers, they must be digging lower than m...

Something to mull over. Click on the image and zoom in for a better look https://i.ibb.co/DtrGQxR/Christopher-Ward-Aquitaine-1.jpg Looks Ok zoomed in, but back out like you see it on your wrist and I think it looks cluttered, illegible, and weird. Just my opinion. What I’m gathering from this threa...

Re: Purposeful regression

That is a fantastic looking audio system :clap: I also work in tech and have all the usual tech gadgets for work (multiple PCs, iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch). It was wearing the Apple Watch that started my interest in wearing watches again (having not worn one at all for over 20 years). However, I ...

Re: Purposeful regression

This is part of the reason I flipped (and it really was a flip/moment) into more traditional/proper watches again. The second smart watch had gone into the bin*. I found the C5 Malvern in a drawer, while Spring cleaning, and it just worked. Took a 25 year old quartz Swatch into a Swatch swap and th...

Yeah, that I don’t mind. Still not crazy about the choice of font but I like that a lot better than branding at nine and noon.

Re: Purposeful regression

Wow, just wow, what a sound system! It looks like something out of Back to the Future. Playing vinyl on that would surely transport you through time. Like Andrew, I love my coffee and don't opt for any of these flash gizmo's that do the rounds. Just a simple Italian stove top pot that makes a delic...
