Re: Quartz - no need to hide...

The whole snobbery question is an interesting one. That watch snobbery exists in the wide is beyond doubt, and I suppose it could be based on movements just as well as on brands. I don't think it has really ever been a problem on this forum. We generally have a pretty oecumenical take on brands and ...

Re: Vintage Oak Straps

Quite agree, Ferg. They are lovely straps. My C65 wears a camel one when not on the bracelet.

Quartz - no need to hide...

Sunday morning musings. I know that for many of us, myself included, it is the love of mechanical watches, be they hand wound or automatic, that brings us to places like the forum. Sometimes, when people talk about their quartz watches, I almost sense the keyboard equivalent of the slightly nervous ...

Re: How often do you sport a moonphase?

Seems like the consensus is most of these watches are mainly fancy conversation pieces. MC When I used the term conversation piece, I was obviously just meaning for myself. There is absolutely no reason why a person could not wear one of these as their every day watch if they wish to. If the Moongl...

Re: Of your own watches. your favourite dial?

Two beautiful and different chronograph dials to begin with.

One of the great designs of all time from me. The Cartier Tank has changed very little in over 100 years. There might just be a reason for that; how DO you improve on perfection?

Re: Laptop etc. Recommendations please?

If you are upgrading your phone, I recommend an iphone 7 which has both a very decent spec and camera for a (relatively) lower cost. Interestingly, Patrick, this was what the chap at EE also suggested would work well. I will probably effect the change the week after next, over half term. I also loo...

Re: How often do you sport a moonphase?

I have thought long and hard about all the CW moon phase watches, especially the most recent one, and yet I have never taken the plunge. Why not, I ask myself? The main reason, I think, is that it would not be a watch I would wear regularly, and certainly not all the time. This would inevitably mean...
