  6. Had this for a few weeks now, the analogue version of the G Shock Frogman in its Borneo Rainbow Toad edition. Limited to 2,000 pieces and going for twice the price of the normal analogue version. When most watches have wound down for the evening after a night out at a bar, this guy is still at a 3am beach party. I introduce you to the ‘hypno toad’:

  8. New battery for the regulator this morning, vintage camel strap to go with my vintage clothing! It's a double-edged sword this getting old lark - I don't have to traipse around 'Bygone Times' looking for vintage clobber, I can just open my wardrobe , but at least I saved the petrol and parking .

  13. Morning, Today, an early 1970s Austin in a 38mm gold-tone case and driven by the 16j Seiko 3702B transistorised movement. Presumably Japanese-made, but by whom I have no idea. Regards.

  18. It's a shame, as there is nothing wrong with some of the brands on Ideal World, Mathey-Tissot, Vostok Europe, Traser, Sturmanskie, Aviator, Swiss Military and now Eterna all decent brands, although everybody may not like the style of theses brand's watches they are at least watchmaking brands. Problem is, especially with the other brands Ideal World sell, is that IW's so called "Expert" guests and presenters spend so much time spouting lies, misinformation and rubbish that more often then not their watch shows have become a farce, it's hilarious listening to some of the nonsense, which IMO neg

  20. As someone with several watches in that price range, I’d say half the enjoyment is in the chase. Don’t just look at the top end of your budget as you might find something half the value gives you much more please. What do you already have in the collection? Any photos? [emoji4]

  21. I nearly bought one nice to look at but in the end I bought a Carter’s. Its funny McQueen is always linked with the Monaco and that Mustang but in real life he was seen driving and owned just about everything except a Mustang and wore a Rolex. The power of smoke, mirrors and marketing

  23. That Blancpain is just drop dead gorgeous! If all works out well and I sell my house in 2.5 years when my state pension kicks in, then that has to be on the cards. IgerSwis talked of the fun of the chase. I am already compiling a list for the 'one'!

  24. There is a bit of common sense to apply here. There may certainly be a problem with certain watches depth rated to 200 or 300 because the "usual parameters" of temperature and therefore possibly pressure swing could exceed the reasonable bandwidth they were designed to handle and could over time cause issues with gaskets etc etc I suppose it would depend on the brand but intuitively it seems the wrong thing to do to let watches bake in a shop window,,,, possibly why many upmarket ADs have polarising and UV barrier glass and also air-conditioning flowing throughout so displays are the same temp

  25. I think I agree re-budget, I have been a little underwhelmed by most at the top end. I have a feeling a Railmaster may prove irresistible first, I would also like a speedy pro but almost put off because it seems so cliché! I would like a chronograph but the IWC Top Gun is probably higher on the list for me- unsure about the size as I've not tried one on yet- I suspect it will bee too big, my Seamaster 300M is 41mm and on the large side for me. Will have to take an up to date pic

  26. Every now and then (well, more often if you believe my dearest Kristina) the alarm clock in our bedroom will be changed for a different one and Kris will throw her eyes up and ask if the new model is really any better or more useable than the previous one. I don't specifically collect modern alarm clocks, but sometimes I can't resist a particular model if I see it in a charity shop or some other pre-owned venue. As for buying a quartz alarm clock brand new, this is reserved for certain models that have a good brand name and which interest me for some reason other than just the alarm feature. T

  28. It is a traditional, straightforward design, with a bit of a twist. I do wonder why I would need a countdown timer and a stopwatch in the bedroom, but others may think of something.

  31. I think you'll find there are many fewer people who feel qualified to give you advice than if you asked which dive watch to buy. I don't really feel qualified, but I'll have a go until someone who knows something comes along. First thing is whether you want new or vintage. There are current makers of pocket watches and some of them are quite nice, I believe, though I don't have one. For example - https://jeanpierre-of-switzerland.com/product-category/pocket-watches/ For vintage, the choice is definitely bewildering. For a start you could try looking for the better known names, for ex

  32. Agree with your comment entirely, when i`ve ever bought a watch the last thing on my mind is what i could get for it if i sold it, i buy a watch cos i like it and at that moment in time i want to keep it forever.

  33. If you can easily afford it (flicking through watches up to 15k you obviously can) then do it. Some people will spend 3-4 grand or less on a used car, some will spend tens of thousands on a brand new supercar, its all about personal spending limits, i would never dream of spending so much on a watch cos i just cant afford to, but many can and do, if it dosnt skint you and leave you struggling its not a problem.
