Re: Automatic - Why?

If you had £200 to spend, i guess the quartz would offer better quality, probably even swiss made (Rotary Elite for example)

Or would you rather an Alpha or Orient Auto ?

Re: Electric Hybrid Bicycle Recommendations

Saw a video of these on YouTube, they look good, some nice features. I've gone down the YouTube rabbit hole since so i can't say ive looked at any alternatives. But they are labeling them as the Apple or Dyson of electric bikes. https://www.vanmoof.com/en-GB/s3?gclid=CjwKCAjwztL2BRATEiwAvnALci4dKmR_...

Re: Spinning rotor syndrome

I am quite surprised to have these kind of issues on "this kind" of watches. Befor my C60 I only bought Orients, Seikos and other sub 400€ watches, but never had movement issues. Is it normal for a 1000€ watch? It's the movement ETA 2824/SW-200 can have it Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Tapatalk My C...

Re: Impulse Buys - Watches preferably, but not exclusively

I bought a pair of Monkey boots on impulse last week. After watching Daniel Craig not wear a pair, in the snow in Spectre. They looked like monkey boots in my view, but i think they're more a hiking boot. Unfortunately the size 7s that turned up, wont fit my size 11 feet, so I've had to return them....

Re: Jokes to cheer us up

I went out and bought some strong cans of lager, i was sick down my front, but i couldn't tell the wife i was drunk, so i decided to turn up with a £20 note in my hand and say, a drunk had been sick on me and had given me £20 for the dry cleaning bill. My wife asked why i had £20 in the other hand. ...

Re: What did you do with your CD collection?

I had the very same thought this morning, when chatting about Spotify. I have most of my CDs burnt to iTunes, but i need to bear in mind they are not as good quality, due to compression or something. I thought i may list them as a job lot, also the same with DVDs. But when i consider the amount of m...

Re: Which way to go for the big 5-0?

I'm a bit confused, with this 1970 reissue.
As its a tie in with the 1975 Film "Jaws" and has a limited number of 1975 pieces, but still called 1970 re-edition.
But i do like it, perhaps you may.
