  3. Morning, 1950s Audax today, with a 17j ETA 1080. There are various attributions for this brand name, explored here by Honour with helpful contributions by others: https://thewatchforum.co.uk/index.php?/topic/109937-audax-watches-hunting-down-the-history/ As an aside, I’m all too frequently reminded by Mrs B that I’m prone to logic bypasses. However, the phrasing of this Huber ad from the 1950s seems to suggest that they were promoting free “All Risks” insurance (perhaps underwritten at Lloyd’s) for their Audax watches, as opposed to advertising “Audax All Risks”-branded watches per se. Do such animals exist and, if not so branded, what is their identifier I wonder? Regards.

  24. Regarding the boxes - what is so special? Take the Windsor 5 https://www.wolf1834.com/windsor-5-piece-watch-box#93=18 Its a piece of glass, a cheap lock, vegan leather (PU - calling it anything but that, or vinyl pleather etc. is a sham), some felt and probably MDF. €155? No thanks. With 70% off, at around £40 its reasonable. Whether their other products justify the price I don't know, but that particular one doesn't look anything like good value to me at full price.

  26. Saw a bit of that last night, there were a couple of the CCCP that were ok. but I don't think I'd buy any watches from them. I've bought a few plants mind and they were fine!

  27. Is wine still a thing, didn’t it out perform gold a bit back ??? Classic cars need to be maintained or in 18 years you’ll just have a pile of oil & rust and a very expensive restoration. Shares, made a few quid Pension not looking great On the other hand I wish I’d filled my boots and bought a bag load of LV’s when they were less than three grand a pop

  28. Agree. Perception of value is individual and can come in many forms. I don't go to the Tate modern because I think it mostly looks like children did it, but others will pay millions for that art. There are plenty of watches I wouldn't stump up for because I don't see the value in them. And no doubt people will think I'm daft for the stuff I pay money for. Us all being different keeps things interesting

  29. I have a teenage daughter, and she is not interested in watches at all. Group it in premium bonds and see what the 20k is worth in 18 years, hopefully a bit more, and then buy them a watch each if that is what they want. Small cocktail watches may be back in fashion then, and they won't be seen dead in a 36mm watch. Or buy a classic car, give them a whole childhood of memories in it, and then sell it and give them half each. You still have to work out how to tell them one of them was not planned

  30. Thanks mate, much appreciated. If anything, the photo doesn't do this one justice. In real life the case and bracelet look a bit shinier, but without being too "in your face". It's a satin finish, but the pic makes it look a bit dull. Also, you can't really see the carbon core part very well either. It's more obvious from the other side, where there's no over-sized crown (which is not a crown at all, it's just a button for the bluetooth!)

  31. Interesting question and not one to which I’ve ever given any real thought. All I can say is that out of my some hundreds of watches, I can only identify about 1% - 2% which are Swiss-made with French movements, plus a few others (German, Swiss, Italian) which have similar. Going purely on my sample, which really isn’t large enough to be anything like representative, I’d guess that the practice was not widespread. Regards.

  36. Finally managed to prise the new Fossil Decker off my wrist after almost a week, just because I fancied a change. Ironically, I've chosen this one today, which is VERY similar: I've been playing "spot the difference", and so far I've spotted: (1) red tachymeter, not black (2) small minute numbers next to hour batons (3) centre links on bracelet polished to mirror finish, not satin (4) tapered hands on dial and subdials (5) plain unpainted seconds hand with no lume pip (6) no crown guards (7) smaller crown (8) subdials have different functionality (9) minute markers have additional 1/5th seconds calibration (10) Plain Fossil logo on dial, no "10 ATM" included (11) Bracelet has got 3 micro adjustment holes (12) lugs are not drilled. Yes, things are a bit quiet around here today...

  38. Personally I would invest in renewable/alternative energy companies, gold (even Andrex ), if I was looking long term. Then liquidate the investment & let them choose an appropriate gift to celebrate, honour the occasion. Who knows what world will be living in 18 years from now? The twins may be more grateful for a regular supply of loo roll than a wristwatch when they are 18? Seriously, I wouldn’t want to be tying up 20K on an intended gift for someone 18 years from now.
