No watches, but hopefully a strapcode oyster bracelet for my new Turtle.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

It might work, but can you confirm the width, it looks more than 22mm?

I prefer “Father Christmas”.
But I guess if the OP is one of our American friends then fair enough. :lol:

And no. Not expecting a watch from either. :lol:

Went to Cheshire Oaks Outets on Friday and looked through the several watch stores there including the TAG one, I was wearing my Trident Pro600 Orange it just made me appreciate how nice CW watches are that I didn't see anything as good especially value for money wise, even in the TAG store.

Ended up grabbing an Emporio Armani white/rose gold piece from Watch Station, £389 down to £139. I don't mind the odd fashion brand as some can be nice and great value for money.

I messaged Santa on WhatsApp a couple of days ago, to ask if he might be able to deliver a Deep Sea for me this Christmas (I've not got a chimney so mentioned he could leave it behind my purple bin).

He messaged back to say where on earth did I think he would get one of those at this time of year! :shock: :grumble:

Nevertheless, he would Sea (bit of a lame pun) what he could do. :santagrin:

Santa has pulled out all the stops to ensure that my Sinn has arrived Down Under before Xmas. It’s been quickly checked for any damage (fallen from the sleigh/nibbled by reindeer etc!) and is now safely back in the box. :thumbup:

Just bought a Tommy Bahama Pilot watch off eBay. Not a brand familiar with most, and probably not even a watch brand as such, but I bought one of their watches whilst on holiday in Florida around 9 years ago and it remains a favourite of mine.

So a second one on the way, just £100, for a new watch RRP of $550. So basically since I first commented in this thread I have now bought 2!

It would seem that Santa may be bringing me a C60 CWE LE this Christmas! :)

I'm also trying to find a suitable ladies watch for him to bring for my wife. Hmmm.
