Re: Hi everybody (after absence but not the prodigal son)

Hello fellow forumites! Thought I’d say a few words since I haven’t really been around here for about two years, and even before that rather infrequently. My interest in watches hasn’t waned but work (and the drive to work) plus children (the older four this week, and the younger two in the autumn)...

Re: I’m thinking a CW bargain......

My best bargain CW was my first one, a yellow dialled C6 Kingfisher. I actually bought it twice... Well, to more accurate, I bought it the first time, sold it, then a couple of months later my wife bought it for me, without being aware that it was actually the same watch I'd sold not long before. T...

Re: Longines Heritage Skin Diver

Celebration of vintage pieces is really hot, and in my opinion rightly so. This Longines is very nice, looks a little like the Oris Divers 65 Heritage, which comes in a little cheaper and is also a fine homage to good old days, with a slightly smaller 40mm head, sapphire crystal and an automatic mov...

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

Liking this thread....

Someone earlier said “fast and furious 5, what load of sh1t”, we’ll you haven’t seen a FF3 Tokyo Drift have you? Because that’s the worst of the lot. Utter crap.

Re: The Curmudgeons Corner

When the ebay or Catawki seller lists a vintage watch as ‘running well’ or ‘keeps perfect time’ because they wound it and the second hand moved. Meantime, those Catawiki experts, whose oversight we are expected to rely upon, even though their input extends to looking at low res photos and reading th...

Re: Post Count System

Yes, if only to identify the newbie sellers. If you join the forum and start selling as soon as you reach 20, then that’s useful information for the buyers to know. Agree with others that one should not have to qualify to see the FS forum though. I may want buy even if I am a rookie or a former lurk...

Re: Marine Nationale Straps on C60 divers....

Duh :clap: , thought the OP was Jan 2018, sorry - I’m a year late, but worth noting that the colour range and size options has increased since the original launch.

Re: Marine Nationale Straps on C60 divers....

No pictures, but I have been looking at these: https://erikasoriginals.com They are made from parachute webbing, which I read is nylon rubber, so they are stretchy and have an innovative buckle mechanism. I’ve got my eye on a Tudor BB and she does a nice blue (“Trident”), which would go very well. T...

Re: Are forums dying?

I agree with a lot of the earlier posts, the forum carries more depth of discussion, which I personally prefer, as it keeps me interested for longer. Good and bad, as long as it’s honest, should be of interest to the brand. How else can they gather market intelligence or customer feedback? I hope th...

Tudor Black Bay GMT, 58, what else?

Having seen the launch of the new Tudor offerings in Basel this month (not in person, unfortunately), after an initially cool reaction, my attention was gradually gripped by the new GMT & 58 models. The blitz of publicity has won me over. Two different watches with different personalities, both refr...

Re: Trident GMT - perfect travel/holiday watch?

The Tudor GMT Pepsi just released is 3x the price of a CW Trident GMT, but it doesn’t look like 3x the watch (I haven’t seen it in the metal, but watched some reviews with close ups - I keep going back to the Rolex with the Jubilee bracelet but it’s well out of my price range). I’m not keen on the ...

Re: Trident GMT - perfect travel/holiday watch?

I have the existing 43mm Trident Bronze - I love the case but every time I look at the dial I am underwhelmed, which is the opposite of my reaction when I look at my CW GMTs and my Oris. Is it the blue color or the lack of wave marks? A lot of people encouraged the removal of wave marks on updated ...
