Believe it or not:

A C3 Malvern Chronograph Mk1 GWT or SWT.

One of my regrets is not buying this when I got my C5 Mk1 SWT ...

Gonna call them tomorrow. I sure hope they ship across the North Sea. After all, it's not Oct. 31 yet!

I have a spare tan strap here that I'm going to put on it.

I hope so, I really do. Today I've been dreaming about selling rather than buying.

Today I've been dreaming of reducing my collection to 1 single watch. :shock: How hard can it be?

Can't say if I'll ever have the strength to do it, though.

I’ve owned maybe 15 or 20 Certina watches over the years, so I’ve quite a soft spot for them. I’m also rather partial to green on watches. Hmmm 41mm of green goodness.

I would be quite partial to owning one of these...

Oh yes, it even has the ~old~ logo on it... ;)

Just shows how different things appeal to different people - I like double date windows, I've just never found a watch with one that I like enough/can afford, to buy one

I do generally like them but I think it's the colour contrast that jars a little to my eyes.

I was reading about this one at the weekend. Great looking watch. However, it’s link to the New Zealand All Blacks put me off it, plus my dislike of Tudors other ambassadors make me not want to buy one new and line their pockets. 2nd hand market only, currently, for me looking at Tudor.

Nice, it I’m sure is essentially the identical watch as this one below, I had one on my wrist in the past hour. I like a lot but it’s a hefty purchase so needs a lot more consideration.

I have seriously been thinking of going down the Nomos route again.

Either the 36mm Club with sapphire back:

Or the 35mm Orion:

I love the Club, but am thinking the Orion might be sweeter on the wrist.

Any thoughts, chaps?
