  20. The Quickster Use mine as a cooking timer occasionally. I can work out where 35 minutes gets me to. The problem is the older I get I find it hard to remember when I actually started cooking. I may be using the Bezel more in future years.

  21. Morning, French-made Mortima from the 1960s, with a 1j Cattin C66. Made by Emile Cattin who pitched the brand as a “working man’s” watch. Missing its sweep seconds and neither “Super” nor “…matic” in any shape or form, other than the date change. Regards.

  22. For years I craved a Tag Heuer watch but due to the costs of normal life I could never justify spending the money on a hobby. Now in later life I have more disposable income an am fortunate to have built a collection to be happy with. As I got into the watch scene it was soon evident that Other brands out there far superior and I am lucky to own a couple from the likes of Omega and Breitling. I do still love a Tag and although they get a slating on this forum, I personally think they are a great brand and of a good quality. So here are mine, and would like to fill the other 2 spaces with a Mon

  25. I don’t mind them, I had a Carrera back in the day and at the time actually chose it over an Omega Speedy, it just felt like a better watch. Fit and finish was superb. In case the Omega fan boys start foaming at the mouth I also bought a full size Planet Ocean at the same time which wasn’t a bad watch either.

  28. Morning all, I took a punt on this Ikepod Megapod at the start of lockdown and it arrived this week. It's a limited edition of 50 called the "Zaha". Something a bit different and I am loving it. Ikepod were originally a pretty expensive Swiss brand designed by Marc Newson who later helped design the Apple Watch. However, the brand has since changed ownership and their watches are now being offered at much more reasonable prices since the manufacturing takes place in Hong Kong. This one has a Japanese Miyota movement. The quality is great so If you care more about the aesthetics than

  30. They won't. That's one of the major reasons for preferring this forum to others (which, apparently, are available). The denizens of this place realize, by and large, that there is no "right answer" in general -- there is only a right(ish) answer for each member -- and even that will probably change over time. Diversity of taste and style is to be encouraged. There is no such thing as a "horological heretic".

  31. Carrera and Speedies feel very different on the wrist .... I know a few people who have Carreras after initially going after a speedy... The Carrera that @Igerswis has ( I thin his mum got it for him I seem to remember ) is one of the best examples... Speedie date and the 2016 Racings are still my favourites in that range and the only examples I would go for perhaps instead of the TAG ...

  34. Anything too big or blingy. Someone could give me a million dollar Ricahrd Mille, diamond covered Rolex or Omega Proplof and it would never go on my wrist. Even if it was a wedding gift, it would be down to the local jewellers and be sold the next day. I like to have nice watches but I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ who wears a watch purely to shove it in everyone else’s face.

  36. My first Tag was the Carrera bullhead (which ended my relationship with Goldsmiths for good!): Second was the Carrera Caliber 16 that was a gift from my mother when she went to Pakistan a few years ago: Third was my Monaco Gulf: It’s not my ‘go to’ brand; that goes to G Shocks or the Omega brand. But I’m glad I have these in the collection. As with most brands, it’s not the actual brand that catches my attention but the specific model. Same goes for cars; a poverty spec BMW 2 series is just an affordable leasing option but a well spec’d M2 is on another level. People hating the

  38. Snap. Never turned the bezel (except to make sure it did). Similar with me and chronographs. I have had one for twenty-six years, and am yet to use the chrono function. Will never buy another.

  39. I have owned a TAG and loved it. My thoughts on the brand are balanced. Currently their watches in the mid ranges are stupidly over priced , best value is achieved at the top and entry. Build quality is fabulous although recently their polishing systems have meant that bracelets mark way too easily with "rubs" as opposed to scratches. People who slag off TAG usually have never actually owned one. To be fair mostly on here the gripes are about price , but you can always get 25% off a TAG new anyway so I never really understand the over the top negativity. In their current range t
