It might be worth dropping Piers an email. I was in touch with him a few weeks ago regarding an Axis II and he had got an old model Atom with the Miyota in it that he would have sold me for 500 quid.

Ahhh, yeah, I’d forgotten that the original was 41mm not 39. I’ve emailed Piers myself earlier this evening for a stock update as he hadn’t got what I wanted a few weeks ago. If there is one on the list when he mails me back I’ll let you know :thumbup:

These seem a very nice and better sized alternative to the tudor ranger and the blue version a well priced and slightly bigger alternative to the lovely blue op36

Leave them alone, Paul. You’ll only buy one then sell it a week later at a loss :lol: :lol:

Paul (aka “four good watches are more than enough”) the blue looks good. :)

However, shouldn’t you at least wait for your new watch to arrive, before flirting around for something else as well.... :wink:

Am I wide of the mark with my guess that the new owner of the Hamilton you are meeting for a pint, is a fellow Dolphin friend?

If the date is to be at 4:30, this is the way to do it. Numbers laying on their side? [-(
Time is fleeting....happy hour, doubly so.

Always look at the shiny objects in the Goldsmiths window and my eye has moved from an SMP 300M to this...

Has to be the green
Definitely leaning that way atm. I'll be wanting to see them both in person before making a decision, preferably side-by-side.
Decision made :wink:

I thought this looks rather good and a bit different. Titanium and not just the case. Weighs only 55 grams on the fabric strap.

Excellent let’s wait a while until the usual large Omega discount is available.

Then I saw the price. :shock:

Completely bonkers!
