  12. Morning, This Patic-Swiss for today. Any scant references I can find for these watches are in Spanish, so perhaps they were aimed predominantly at that market. The brand seems to have used various movements like AS, FEF and ST, whilst this particular one has a “Wehrmachtswerk”-styled 15j Unitas 6310. Regards.

  23. Whilst I was liking the silver Breitling 41 colt, on a recent visit to Edinburgh I was unable to try on a bracelet version. I am not one to take a risk so looked at a few options from both the new/used market , trying on various things. A rather mediocre service at Laings , made sure I would not buy nowt from them. ( However they did call a few days later , to say that model of Breitling is now discontinued?) I was back to the drawing board, when I saw a used model of a watch I have liked for a while. (Golf Green edition) The 39mm’s, I had tried in the past always looked too s

  26. Arrived this morning, it’s going to have to grow on me. It looks better in every image, video and photo I’ve seen (including the one I just took below) than it does in the flesh, the green doesn’t come through until you get the right light.

  29. RLT-17 is the best looking of all the RLT watches I reckon. I'm working from home today, so haven't worn a watch all day, but as I've just acquired another watch with a faceted crystal that is awaiting a battery, I thought I'd pull this funny looking thing from the back of the watch box to get me used to the look.

  30. Sorry, Honour. I was totally unaware of your 2016 Mount Royal dissertation until another member "de-necrotised" the thread. If it's of any interest, here's what I posted on 25th June this year about my own Mount Royal, along with the accompanying images. As you'll see, my superficial research didn't get very far. "Today, a 1950s relic of the Jewel Wars, this Mount Royal running on a Felsa 4002 pimped to 80 jewels, probably 25 of which are broadly functional and 55 which, er, aren’t. The most likely maker of this curiosity would have been the original Choisi company of Geneva (Es

  35. My great grandfather, he was a "contemptible" Royal Field Artillery gunner who fought at Le Cateau, First Battle of the Marne, Battle of Mons and the epic 250 mile fighting retreat from Mons followed by the counter attack at the Battle of the Aisne. The RFA had Quick-Firing 18 pounder (5 inch) guns in 1914 firing mainly shrapnel shells which were highly effective against troops in the open and did much to facilitate the retreat from Mons. At this stage of the war the guns were in the open and sadly great grandfather John was killed at the Aisne in September 1914 when his battery was hit by a 4

  40. Again I’m with @Biker on them, the Tefal ones works great, it doesn’t matter if you only do small portions, some of the other ones don’t spin round and turn the chips or whatever over as it goes for more even cooking like the Tefal one does. Like all things beware of cheap imitations, they’re usually cheap for a reason

  41. Depends what you like eating but for chips, roasties, chicken and so on it’s great. Chuck them in set the timer and off you go. We really only use it for chips, much better than oven chips and less oil than deep frying you literally use a spoonful of oil with it. Not cheap though @Biker got a bargain but as you would expect Big M wanted the all singing all dancing one. As I said expensive chips.

  43. Given your propensity for wearing 2 watches (which I occasionally also do but would never admit to) there’s got to be a pun in there about double-time, right ? I’ll get me coat ....
