  6. Morning, It’ll be this Hamilton today, running on a 17j Tissot/Hamilton 2451 and one of the occasional freebies from my watchmaker in return for my help over the years in ensuring that he'll be able to retire in some degree of comfort. Regards.

  13. I just took this off ... And put this on, ready for today's daring far-flung expedition ... Here I am patiently waiting for low tide ... So I can throw off the shackles of my home office, and escape to the exotic shores of the kitchen table! Might need the compass, barometer is fairly steady so hoping the weather holds.

  27. This for the evening, don't know why I like it so much. I've had a go charging it on a Sonicare toothbrush induction (air-gap) charger. Not sure if it works but the watch does get warm I'll plug it through a current meter later.

  31. I put my money where my mouth is with this, a Breitling Superocean Heritage B20 46mm on mesh strap. It's probably my favourite dive watch period. It's just so versatile, I've worn it on the beach with board shorts and I've worn it with a Dinner Jacket to special events and in neither instance has it looked out of place. The dial can look quite flat in some photos but it has a fantastic yet subtle starburst brushing that really makes the dial pop under certain lighting. The date at 6, the Tudor / Breitling 'manufacture' movement and the yellow gold 'B' logo all make it an amazing watch (to me

  34. It also raises the question of whether customs have access to the system that manages NiNo's, which I very much doubt, so it's a pointless exercise in any case. Worth remembering that your NiNo is a lifelong identifier and a defacto 'identity card', that your whole life history is recorded against. From when first issued, all the addresses you have ever lived at, who you have worked for, tax paid, benefits claimed and so on, until the day you die.

  36. If you agree please sign the petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/572127 The problem is that now we (the UK) have left the EU everything being imported has VAT at 20%, making buying anything from Europe is difficult. On new items the seller should be able to show the price less VAT for export. But on used items, including of course watches, most sellers are registered on the margin scheme for VAT and are not allowed to show prices less this VAT. For example, a £100 watch new would be invoiced at £100 less the local VATs so about £80, and we would get charged 20%

  37. Not so sure about that, back in the day if you were looking for me you would have ended up in a skip hire yard on a not so local industrial estate.

  38. Not sure how to or if I can transfer them. Anyway the point is moot as I've spent some of them on a book on urban decay (knackered abandoned buildings etc) & a high level brake light for the SS1. I've been out for a quick run in the car today & felt quite vulnerable on the motorway - it's just about level with an hgv's wheel nuts - so anything that makes me more visible to road users is a good thing. Anyway not sure what I'll spend the rest on but I'm sure something will turn up. Sorry for pratting you all about & if you want to delete/lock this thread then please do so

  40. Swedish design it may be, but there is nothing particularly Swedish or fascinating about the design of this chronograph. Having said that, there is nothing inherently wrong with the design either, and if the watch lives up to the blurb on the Kickstarter campaign then it seems to be a respectable and well-specified watch at a fairly reasonable price. I especially like the quite well-integrated combination of quartz chronograph and diving timepiece, powered by a decent jewelled Swiss movement. As a final note, I did wonder about the use of the word "handcraft" in the Sirrush Watches Kickstarte

  41. So, as I was saying, I am slimming down my collection, and I have started by adding this watch, quite slim, recessed crown, and fairly short lug to lug, jolly compact I would say and definitely makes my collection a bit slimmer. I suppose technically speaking I have slimmed my collection up, rather than down! Arrived safely via sales corner from @Roy, and the work of a moment to put it on my Geckota super-engineer bracelet. Thanks @Roy HAGD

  43. Depends if you look at them as an investment or if you simply enjoy having them. I don't look at my watches as an investment. That market is fraught with danger and if you want to cash them in it is a matter of predicting when they will be at the top of the market before (and if) they fall in value. Also are the asking prices being achieved? It is not a dilemna I have with my two because they are family heirlooms. One is my Dad's service issue and the other he bought in the 60's as a backup. So they cannot be sold with any good conscience. One thing is for sure - if you sell the
