  1. I like that, very unusual. My only Tissot,
  2. Sometimes you go off a watch for a few years and then rediscover it again. There's definitely a few I should get rid of, or maybe I just haven't found the right straps for them yet....
  3. That's a nice dress watch you have there to remember him by. Odd coincidence, I collected my late dad's Pulsar this weekend and spent some time this morning cleaning it up and choosing a new strap. The original strap on his is really bad, almost falling apart. Hopefully it still works as I haven't got a battery to test it yet. He passed away in 1987 I think.
  4. This is my favourite watch at the moment.
  5. No way! I always wear it behind the bony bit, though a heavy watch can slip down.
  6. They seem a bit expensive for a Junghans homage. What about a Loreo? Only £57 on Aliexpress. I rather like the gold case with the tan strap.
  7. Seiko seem to want to move up a tier. I can't see many buyers who have only a passing interest in watches spending that sort of money on a Seiko. Most casual buyers would lump Seiko, Citizen, Accurist, Sekonda and Rotary all in the same group.
  8. It happens to most of us from time to time. Sometimes you go through all the right moves and nothing happens, that's nothing to be ashamed about. Alcohol or late night sessions flipping this and that might offer some light relief, but it won't last.
  9. I stopped wearing this one for years, but since the Black Bay Bronze has made brassy colour watches popular, I think I'll start wearing it again.
  10. It's a re-make of the Sea-Gull 1963 Chinese air force watch. I bought mine in 2010 from a user on this forum. There are a few variants out there, some possibly by different manufacturers but using Sea-Gull movements and some are bigger than others. Mine's 38mm and it does wear quite dainty compared to modern watch designs. I've certainly been happy with it over the last 9 years.
  11. Taz, I have a slight issue with your photos.
  12. No, it's just going to get in the way when I'm drying off. Might wack it against the sink or tiled wall as my bathroom isn't the most spacious. The only watch I've ever taken swimming was a Vostok Amphibia. I have to admit, I don't always wear a watch if I'm at home for the day.
