  1. that's not entirely fair, clearly is a prototype being winter tested with a soft exterior designed to deceive. I'm pretty certain something beautiful lies beneath.
  2. Life is good looks like a great way to spend your day.
  3. "Mr Wong from Hong Kong to see you minister" that schoolboy within me can't resist a little smile. The watch for me looks a little drab and the story doesn't excite me but as others have said maybe the Chinese will lap it up. Lucky really as I couldn't afford it anyhow
  4. not been on the wrist much lately but it's sunny - Milly our old cat in the bottom of the shot, she's getting on for 20. Ships bell is the closest I got to building my own boat [url=https://flic.kr/p/2hf8TKM][/url]IMG_20190914_094901316_HDR[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/137308996@N02/]David Wren, on Flickr
  5. Lord and Lady Wrenny1969 have just got back from watching the Downton Abbey film at the cinema. Not a bad effort but my Lady got more out of it than me.
  6. It's lovely isn't it. We know it as https://www.northumberlandnationalpark.org.uk/places-to-visit/hadrians-wall/steel-rigg/ there are two national trust properties which you can rent the closest https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/holidays/peel-bothy-northumberland literally walk out of your front door to the wall and https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/holidays/springwell-cottage-northumberland about 3 mins walk down the road. Springwell is a larger property for not much more money both dog friendly.
  7. The pronounced wrist bone is a congenital defect, natures way of telling you not to wear a watch. Watches are to be worn low on the wrist any higher and it's an armband, I think it's a Celtic throwback to torc wearing days. Vercingetorwrist was so named because he was wristless, the Romans had proper wrists so they won. So maybe evidenced more in Cornwall, Wales and Scotland? In short I think a watch worn to high on the arm looks $hite.
  8. Orients are a no regrets purchase normally I think. Pick a design you like and make sure you don't overpay. Crystals can be sensitive to scratching as I found out.
  9. I wore a pair of jeans today - first time out of shorts since er...months ago.
  10. Indian owned company, Slovakian made go to the Frankfurt motor show to see one. You can almost smell the heritage. That said it looks alright, perfect for the yummy mummy school run, I'd turn my head to look at it. Doubt Fred Dibner would buy one, if he were alive.
  11. aye, ultimately when it's alleged, by some online, that Rolex control who can sell what, for how much, any reputational damage caused by market manipulation might be seen, by some, to be owned by them.
  12. agreed but when some AD's withhold warranty cards etc. from the man in the street to try and dissuade quick profit taking, it probably wouldn't be too difficult to do the same with the touts - "no tags or warranty card" would put a few off maybe but I'm no expert.
  13. You are probably right given your knowledge however personal thoughts are only irrelevant when kept as thoughts. The introduction of doubt has a remarkable effect on markets. Personally I don't mind people owning something which goes up in value but I'm not keen on dealers touting.
