    I came across this watch whilst doing some research on a non watch related subject; The Nairn Transport Company. This company was set up around 1923 By brothers Gerald and Norman Nairn from New Zealand. Initially they used cars, Buicks and Cadillacs, when the 650-mile (1047 km) desert route from Beirut to Baghdad was opened, and to begin with was an overland mail service which replaced what was described as a "fast camel service" which often got robbed by bandits. In 1926 the cars were replaced by 16 seater busses, which were replaced in 1932 by double decker trailed (articulated) busses. In 1937, the brothers commissioned two stainless steel Pullmans from Budd of Philadephia, which were air-conditioned, articulated and fast. These were used until the late 1950's when the company closed. The later busses were diesel powered, capable of sustaining speeds in excess of 70mph, and could return 9mpg, a big improvement over their petrol engined predecessors which made just over 2mpg. The coaches were kitted out for luxury travel with inflatable rubber seats to soak up the worst of the rough unmade desert routes, and they also had a sleeping compartment. During WW2, the busses were used to transport RAF personnel. A watch with an interesting history, and looking around at some of the sales sites can be picked up for not much money.

    Tag Heuer bullhead today with the 1887 movement: Got hold of a third Pomeranian; this is a sable coloured puppy that’s three months old. Named her Ghost after Game of Thrones series and hoping to breed her when she’s older with the male as Thai people love to buy certain dog breeds if they can afford it (Poms, huskies, corgis, chow chows, chihuahuas). The poorer people or people in the gutter end up with village dogs and mixed breeds so in a way the more affluent people here buy certain breeds as a sign of wealth and status. Project GTR has changed to Project C-HR lol. The daily runaround has been modified but a motorbike hit it the other day. Will have to make a thread of the car with updates if anyone is interested in that kind of thing: Feel free to laugh at the guy; he accepted full liability for everything. Road safety here is shocking; the amount of people killed everyday is horrifying and yet nobody’s attitude changes. They stay in the gutter and never want to get out of it. Quite similar to the chavs in the council estates in the UK to be fair.

    £2250 more than the spectre 300m when that was released which included both ss & nato straps. To me it is Swatch group just plucking numbers out of the skyfall! Time to live & let die... They can shove it up there goldeneye

    Interesting that it's nearly £2.5k more expensive than this bracelet version, which (to my eyes at least) looks much better in every way: The aged lume is probably the worst feature on the 007 version, and for £6.5k I'd expect them to at least include a bracelet as well as a NATO. I'm obviously missing something, and it's a definite from me.

    Perhaps it's just clumsily worded but there isn't much humour to be found at the scene of an accident unless it's me out of touch. Nice watch though.

    Just thought I'd put up a quick post about Ruthie's new pride and joy after we sold the MR2. Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing "Daisy" (as in, "Daisy Juke" - Geddit? ): Ruthie has been talking about getting one of these for a while, and now it's here I can definitely see the attraction. Even the quirky appearance is growing on me It's a low mileage 2014 1.2 turbo, 6 speed, and is absolutely loaded with every conceivable extra you can think of, so it's going to take a while for her to suss out all the gadgets and gizmo's Condition is nice and clean, with only a few faint surface scratches on the paintwork in a couple of places, but nothing that won't polish out I reckon. One of the wheels has been curbed, so that will need looking at sometime. The interior is pretty much as new, and finished in black leather with yellow highlights on the seats and dashboard. The added toys include electric windows/mirrors (auto folding when parked), climate control, reversing camera, sat nav, bluetooth phone connection, keyless entry, blindspot assist, rain sensing wipers, stop/start engine system, auto dimming rear view mirror... she seems to find something new every day I've driven it a couple of times, and it's very easy to drive. Steering is light, gearchange is silky smooth, the engine is nice and quiet, and although it's obviously no match for the Boxster it does accelerate well in all gears. Despite looking like a pretty big car, we checked today and my Porsche is actually about a foot longer So there you have it, what a great year, with the wedding, my Porsche, and to top it all, Ruthie got her dream car - Get in!

    My Grandad used to say the; Egyptians used to do this during ww2, that he once saw a camel bite a man's head clean off and an unfortunate fall down one of the pyramids breaking every bone in his body. I don't know when he got the time to kill Germans and Italians. Hyderabad is supposed to be good for pearls and Biryani, so one of my ex colleagues told me once. Shame it's not where you are going. Have fun.
