  1. Rolex Sub from 2005 ( no holes) today.
  2. Either of these two are candidates. The SMP has been around the world with me over the past 10 years and is my goto summer watch. The Daytona would suit if I have up wearing a watch every day and only for special occasions.
  3. I prefer automatic movement watches. In fact I only have one hand wind watch and that's my Grandads Smiths Deluxe. I have a couple of quartz, mainly solar powered but the rest are automatics. I never have a real problem with them not winding enough even though I'm retired. When I was a lad, hand wind watches were old hat and, automatics were the height of sophistication. Then came the quartz revolution but my fascination with automatic movements has survived.
  4. Seiko Astron GPS solar for today as needs a bit of charging.
  5. Ollech and Wajs ID3066 automatic chronograph ( Valjoux 7750 movement) for the first day of meteorological autumn.
  6. Probably not a bad idea to contact Cousins and ask? I can't think of a reason unless a 10 piece set comes in a fancier box.
  7. Don't forget Brandium. Used by many wannabe makers.
  8. Keep the Carrera. Nice classy dress watch vs everyone recognises a not too special dive or sports watch that says 'TAG'. I know, I've had both and flipped the Carrera. Regretted it ever since.
  9. Been to a retirement do so now on way home wearing my Daytona. Great choice. Can't beat a sub for all purposes ( except perhaps mowing the grass or mending the car).
  10. Bought this 4 years ago for less than a tenner. On its second battery now but does the job.
  11. Bit late on parade but couldn't resist giving my Daytona a day out.
  12. Not all bracelets. Here's mine after 10 years careful wearing.
  13. Great choice in my opinion. I love my SMP from 2009 and its been my all time favourite watch over the last 10 years. Still runs within Chronometer time as well.
  14. Sitting out in the garden with my Omega SMP coaxial today.
  15. In my view its a different sort of Rolex from the ubiquitous DJ, Sub etc. It may not have the meteoric rise in value of the others but looks very wearable and versatile. Buy it, wear it and don't listen to those who call the Air King an ' entry level' watch.
