  1. Ask her why she needs more than one pair of shoes, they all look the same .
  2. Not a soldier, Sapper if you don't mind.
  3. I'm ready, kit laid out for inspection ....
  4. I've boxes of all descriptions from wood to cardboard, but one of my favourites is this one. It's the one for the Omega X-33, and it's made out of the material used for NASA astronauts' spacesuits. The only problem with it is that it is notorious for yellowing under the effects of ultraviolet light, so to keep it looking nice you have to hide it away in the original white outer box that it comes in and only look at it at nighttime ...
  5. I I know where you can get this if it helps ....
  6. It was a Newmark watch like that, which was a Christmas present as a young lad, which probably started me off on the long road of watch collecting, so it's lovely to see that.
  7. Morning all ... well, I'm ready for the Mars expedition, where do I sign ....
  8. Yes, there were some silly prices at the time, but it helped sellers after that to escalate prices quite a bit. However, look at where prices have gone on some of those watches now, it's absolutely frightening.
  9. Ah, but we can all dream, and you never know when your lottery ticket might come home.
  10. If anyone is interested in the history and how Victorinox started producing watches, this is a good read. https://www.watchhunter.org/2019/01/unofficial-history-victorinox-swiss-army-watches-origin-historical-timeline.html

  12. That is rather lovely, and I do like the size, it seems some manufacturers are learning that not everyone wants a brick on their wrist and that looks great to me. That's a great bracelet too, very clever. I suppose the cost is justified, it just seems they go up and up these days, I must be getting old.
  13. This one for me today, I like eccentric watches...
  14. ......................................... Right, so I'm back. So, if you consider that the watch may have been back to Omega, or another watchmaker, more than once, you can start to see just how convoluted it becomes to track down which are original parts, service parts and parts that may have been re-manufactured at a later date to service original watches or produce new editions. Hence, why the site that I referred you to is so valuable in that much of the research as to possibilities of parts has already been done, but that doesn't mean it is definitive, there always seem to be varia
