  10. New strap arrived yesterday for my 1940 Movado Chronometer - strapped it straight on. Belonged to a Flt Sgt. air gunner in the RNZAF, who survived a terrible crash landing in 1941, and the rest of the war, eventually demobbed as a WO, back to civvy street and family life, so hurrah for that! His bro survived ditching in the North Sea, too! HAGD

  16. Been coveting this model for ages. One finally came up that was appreciably under list price, not new but unused and guaranteed By Tudor for full 2 years. also this one has the benefit of the NATO style Tudor fabric strap as well as a brand new full steel bracelet. I've almost never worn any watch on a NATO up until now, but I have to say this one looks the dogs bollocks - as we used to say in the old days. Seriously smart but slightly casual. The eyes have already popped out on stalks back home when shown to my two sons in their 20s! It’s caused a massive dent in my little watch f

  21. What is this ‘selling’ of watches you talk about...pray tell ?

  22. I've bought and sold plenty of watches on ebay in the past without any problems, but I'd only use it as a last resort now. The sales corner on here is extremely reliable from my experience. Everything I've bought has been exactly as described, and everything I've sold has gone smoothly without fuss. As @Roger the Dodger said previously, "The big advantage of selling here is that you will probably know the buyer, or can communicate with them via the PM service, as all are genuine watch enthusiasts". That pretty much sums it up really, the members on here have always been honest and easy

  23. I have just splashed out £30 in a local charity shop on a rather beautiful pre-owned Skagen Viggo in titanium with a steel mesh bracelet (Model number 234XXLT). I believe that this particular model is just about no longer current but I did manage find it still advertized on the Skagen website for £84.99, down from RRP of £135. I fell in love with the watch as soon as I picked it up; the quality of the watch itself seems to be impeccable and in addition to the fine aesthetics, the watch feels gorgeous in the hand with the case moving smoothly into the slinky mesh bracelet. The watch has a 42mm

  25. I bought this unusual square/round Jenny off that well known auction site. Style probably not to all tastes, but a Jenny for £29, can't be too bad. Now what strap would go well on this?

  26. Much prefer selling to people I trust on here. Ebay can be a nightmare and there are scams aplenty. The one you don't want is: "You sold me a fake watch" "No I didn't" "I want my money back" "OK, I want my watch back first" "You've sent me a fake watch back!" "Yes, I know. Told you it was fake" Ebay / Paypal then freeze your funds or issue a debt on the account if you've taken the money out first. Scammer gets his money back and your nice watch.

  27. It's pretty straight forward selling on here...write your ad, take some pics and simply upload. The big advantage of selling here is that you will probably know the buyer, or can communicate with them via the PM service, as all are genuine watch enthusiasts. Members can't access the Classifieds until they reach 50 posts, so hopefully by then, we have got to know them a bit better. There is also the 'feedback' section, where you can see a potential buyer's reputation, and you can also see a members feedback by clicking on their profile. Over the 11 years or so that I've been a member of the fo

  30. I've sold plenty on here with no issues at all, and bought a fair few as well. I tend to stick to well established forum members, some I have dealt with both buying and selling more than once, and have become very good forum friends. Yep, we did a swap some time ago with no issues at all.

  31. It's not so much the buying, it's more about the selling, and Flebay's bias towards the buyer rather than the seller. Sadly there are a few dishonest buyers, and to be fair some dishonest sellers. I guess it's like surfing in Australia, you know there are sharks in the water, and most of the time you get out of the water unscathed. The more often you get in the water the more opportunities the shark gets to bite you. I have a love hate relationship with Flebay, sometimes I love it, and sometimes I love to hate it.

  32. I forgot to mention, I've done a fair number of trades on here in the past as well (straight swaps, with no money exchanging hands either way) and that has also been great, with both parties completely satisfied and happy with the swaps.

  33. I’ve sold on eBay and bought on eBay and the same on the forum (serial flipper lol ) I’ve only had a few problems on eBay but that’s what PayPal protection is their for as a last resort if it goes pear shaped etc also traded with many members on the forum but only that have plenty off feedback and dealt with before but to be fair the forums a great place for buyIng and selling not as busy as the good old days but still worth browsing or selling

  38. Maureen O'Hara sometimes reminds me of Gillian Anderson in that she can flip-flop between Irish (or English in Gillian's case) and American accents at the drop of a hat depending on who she's talking to. But maybe a US production of a story set in Wales was too much for her. Too bad Meryl Streep wasn't around at the time [EDIT] It's just occurred to me that possibly the worst Hollywood movie interpretation (from the 1940's anyway) of a British story is the downright dreadful "Mrs. Miniver".
