    • I do rather like that watch, dear Biker, partly - it has to be said - because of the price. I have never heard of "Drop" but they are obviously a retail site worth checking out. I am always a bit nervous about moving away from the Amazon/Argos bandwidth but as I recently had such good service from Microglobe, who were also new to me, a bit of exploring might not go amiss in future. 
    • For those of you who are interested in the history of Patria watches, you might like to read my Forum article on the brand. It is in my Forum Topics section, posted 6 March this year, and titled, "Patria, An Erstwhile Brother of Omega". In my topic on Patria, I did mention the Brigadier wristwatch and the new reborn Patria watch brand. However, I did not discuss this recent development in any detail partly because there is no genuine link between the original Patria concern and the new Patria brand. I am aware that using a distinguished name from the past in order to achieve a certain status in the present is a frequent marketing tool but I am not very keen on this method of launching a new watch company. The Brigadier is a nice looking watch and no doubt  one of quality but it feels like taking a backward step into a previous era rather than being any sort of real "next step" in watchmaking history.
    • Make sure there isn't a coat of lacquer or some other coating on it, that'll stop it soldering.
