  1. Nice watches on display today guys I'm taking this to the CAWF tomorrow, as it can be used as cash if I run out and see something I need. If not I can bring it home - it's a win either way

  31. Further report . . . Ten glorious days in Berlin (barely a cloud seen in that time), but, from the perspective of this group, not that interesting. Was busy, so did not have the chance to dig out the watch specialists -- so saw only the usual city centre outlets (Wempe, Bucherer, Leicht) selling the usual stuff, but did notice that the asking prices were higher than UK by a few per cent. During my stay, I did contact GO to ask whether there was any possibility of looking at their manufacture during my subsequent visit to Glashütte. At least three emails in each direction ensued over the course of a week, culminating with an extremely polite and apologetic phone call on the day I arrived in Glashütte (when I was already there) to the effect that they could not accommodate me. Ironically, I then sent a tongue-in-cheek mail to MG, only to receive a reply within 15 minutes apologizing that, that day, they could do nothing -- but that, were I to visit again and give them a couple of days notice, they would love to show me round. Drat, backed the wrong horse -- but impressed with MG. To their credit, GO did give us (Mem'sahib and me) free entry to the Glashütte watch museum, and have subsequently followed up with another mail hoping I got home safely So, general impressions (to add to the report provided previously by @scottswatches) . . . . . Glashütte is a large village rather than a small town. It is very attractively located (meaning that there is quite a drive on very small roads to get there), is quite picturesque, and (considering that it was in East Germany thirty years ago) very well maintained. It does have a railway station, but services are infrequent. The most amazing thing about Glashütte is the juxtaposition of so many famous brands. I took a panoramic photo from outside the front door of GO to illustrate, and caught four world famous brands (and the source of five of my watches) . . . . This is ALS with the tower of GO visible immediately behind . . . And Nomos and MG are separated only by the railway line . . . Tutima is about two minutes walk further on . . . . Additionally, Union, Mühle, Söhnle and Wempe are only a few hundred metres further. High prices seem to be reinvested -- this appears to be the ALS car park!! Interestingly, there seems to be only one AD in Glashütte (Union, Mühle, Söhnle), though there is a small but smart Nomos factory outlet. GO told me that they had a factory store, but moved it to the centre of Dresden. So, you can visit the source of German high-end watchmaking, but you can't buy a really high-end watch Enough for now. Probably tomorrow I'll report on the beautiful museum and some of the history of the town since WWII. David

  32. I would suggest the 2531.80.00, Cal1120 circa late 1990's early 2000's the full size automatic model at 41mm. The James Bond model with the wavy blue dial and excellent bracelet. Priced around £1250-1600 Cheers Martin

  33. As seen in todays WRUW thread I was ecstatic to receive my Smiths PRS-29AM (air ministry) this lunchtime. At 36mm dia and 48mm lug to lug it is one of the smallest watches I have purchased. The usual speedy and secure package arrived to be signed for from Eddie at Timefactors. Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr A new style black two watch travel case with red stitching and embossed logo awaited, along with the information sheet. Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr The usual warranty card, cleaning cloth and watch secured within, along with the stunning Air Ministry Smiths. Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr Smiths PRS-29AM by Paul, on Flickr A quick change of strap from a rather nice black nato to an old Perlon that I had in my strap box (the 18mm Eliut I had purchased didn't look right I thought theweave was too tight and modern looking.) followed by a first tentative wind , then onto the wrist it went.

I think like me only (5ft 4" dia) sometimes great things come in small packages and size isn't an issue.

  34. I mainly work with people about 10 years younger than me, and they get offended at everything! They also get offended if you are talking about them, or if your aren’t talking about them! I just stay out of the way! Haha

  37. if you can only have three, go large Although I say goodbye to the Patek today, so I have to find something to fill the vacancy. Possible this, as the dial is a different colour, and it is auto where the others are manual and quartz But then I would need a hummer. And a Chronograph. And a moonphase. And a GMT. And a Seiko - everyone needs a Seiko. And a Black dial of course, and a beater. Three watches - impossible!
