  4. Morning, MuDu is another of my favourite brands, having more examples than is strictly necessary although not quite yet in numbers which could be deemed clinically obsessive. Made by Adolf Müller & Kurt Dubach based in Geneva who registered the name in about 1957, what will be today’s effort runs on a 25j Felsa 4007N auto and dates from around the mid-60s. Compounding MuDu’s colourful reputation for shady provenance, a 2018 publication by author Peter Walsh highlighted the exploits of the Investigations Branch of the then HM Customs & Excise and relates a 1961 incident of a g

  8. How many is clinically obsessive? I'm asking for a friend. Nothing obsessive about this old favourite, the Zand with its unpretentious Lorsa P62.

  10. Today is less blue - Eterna Tangaroa, bought for a massive bargain from Drop for complicated sentimental reasons. I expected it to languish in my watch box hardly ever getting worn but it's a sold member of my rotation, mainly due to it being deceptively easy to read (when there is light - no lume) and it being incredibly comfortable to wear - the bracelet is some sort of oyser / president hybrid that is just so comfortable. Long lugs means it sits on my wrist just right and things like the signed deployant and crown are just icing on the cake. The ONLY thing i would change would be the date w

  14. It's this weird little Raketa today: Found online for next to nothing, I wasn't sure if I liked it but wanted to give it a try. It came with a heavily scratched crystal, so yesterday, I tried PolyWatch for the first time (rather than on a more valuable timepiece). I have to say, I'm intrigued. Before: And after the first round of polishing. Probably gonna do another one later:

  21. Remember the old ads when real people achieved real things, and had to wear a good watch to achieve them, What is there today to match, let's see them, and no James Bond nonsense, he's fictional. Here's mine. This young lady works for a window fitting company and can be seen here holding a window in place whilst wearing the latest Tudor.

  24. I've been away for a few days on an early surprise birthday jaunt to Butlins at Bognor Regis (a similar 80's music themed weekend to my stag do last year) so I decided to give my favourite Bulova Precisionist some wrist time, and I'm still wearing it today:

  27. Hey Graham! I think 150 would be a max cap, but trying to stay lower if it's possible. A bit hard when it comes with sapphire glass probably. Looking at Reef Tiger now, didn't know the brand! that's not a bad one! thank you so much

  31. You could try rust remover. Leave the whole watch submerged for a day or two, then throw it away. Its past saving

  32. I've followed the brand for a while and although I think some of their designs are spot on ( and some are pretty whack - what's with the combined dive / gmt bezel guys?) The one, single thing that's stopped me buying one is the branding / logo. The original Chr. Ward London was too 'wordy' and looked very 'Chinese watch trying to be upmarket', The swiss / english flag logo is great but then they go and slap their name all over 9 o'clock. Again that makes it a hard pass, They need to bite the bullet and like Kentucky Fried Chicken changed to KFC, move from Christopher Ward to CW although Daniel

  34. Hi Rafy Think you already know that I’m a big supporter of the brand & have acquired quite a few to date, including their own in house calibre SH21. Regarding quality I struggle to think of any other brand (that I’m accustomed to) that can offer more bang for buck!! Customer service has always been exemplary in my experience & the owners willing to engage personally, particularly Chris Ward (watch this space) ? Remember that you have 60 days to return a timepiece if it doesn’t come up to your expectations for a full refund. They’ll even send you a free returns pack

  35. You're not serious, are you? It looks like a pizza that's been left out in the rain. Without the rust there'd be nothing left.

  38. Part of the problem is that all the 'Highest, deepest, furthest, moon' stuff has been done. Probably the closest recent 'thing' was Baumgartner falling a few miles and then pulling a cord wearing a Zenith. I've not seen Zenith make a big deal of that though and to be fair taking a step, waiting and then puling the ripcord when a computer tells him to isn't on the same level as Hillary and Tensing. Also in a world where a bad actress, mediocre singer or any athlete has more influence than explorers, adventurers, scientists and derring doo, it's just plain economics to use the former to haw

  39. Do you consider it safe to drive that distance with only a couple of five minute stops? We are not all going to be so desperate to get somewhere that we will risk our lives by driving when tired. IF we all had to switch to electric cars on the same day then I doubt if the infrastructure would cope but that will not happen. It will be quite a few years after 2025 before petrol/diesel cars are just a memory and technology will have advanced to extend range and reduce the pressures on recharging. Just look at what Tesla are doing - https://www.driving.co.uk/news/tesla-semi-electric-lor
