  24. 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 small on my wrist, where the 41.5 mm was perfect. Trigger pulled and sticking to my favoured brand........ Now just the wait for it to arrive, then for my birthday to get it! Richy

  30. Running, cycling AND swimming?? Perish the thought! I say tuck a vintage pocketwatch into your waistcoat, don a stout pair of brogues and a bowler, and go for a nice stroll instead

  31. Great minds think alike, Steve. My first thought on this query was, "Why not a G-Shock?" Roxyben seems to agree as well.

  32. I often wear my garmin on one wrist and a g shock on the other when out running. Sometimes an automatic although I do worry how wound its getting out on the run. Can't really go wrong with a g shock I think. Nice and light too, you won't realise it's there.

  33. My favourite version of the AT as well. Congratulations Unfortunately, Omega's lack of any micro adjustment on its bracelets means I'll never own another AT. Even with judicious use of two half links, it's either hanging off my wrist or cutting off the circulation. Unacceptable at that price

  34. No argument here. Lovely watch and a perfect memento. Enjoy the big day when it comes. I have fond memories of my 50th – I was on holiday in Turkey and went up in a microlight! At least I think I did. The memories got a bit hazy later in the day for some reason.

  35. You`re probably aware or maybe not but theres a recent thread on these watches. It does seem a lot for an outdoor pursuits watch, your wife has a point, but everybodies budget is different, cant recommend anything as its not a field i`ve really looked into so sorry.

  39. 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.

  42. 100m is depth water resistance. Under water and 10 bar pressure the seals are pressed tighter. A common misconception is that means that a hot shower or bath will be fine, and in reality it isn't as everything expands at different rates with heat. I'm not suggesting you have worn the watch in hot showers, but it is just an example of 100m water resistance meaning not a lot. You might find that your watch passes the tests for water resistance, as they recreate the 10bar pressure under water.

  43. The 100m is a rating under lab conditions and it doesn't really reflect real life, problem with chronographs is that the you can get moisture ingress via the crown and the pushers if the seals are worn, personally I don't take my chronographs anywhere near water! You can also send your watch direct to Tag Heuer (LVMH) service centre I have just had a watch done by them, came back like new. https://customer-service.tagheuer.com/en-gb/contact/contact-watches
