  1. It wasn't launched this year (or so, depending on corona changes) , so wouldn't qualify I have been really impress with the Piaget watches I have had, and they have completely won me over.
  2. not sure tomorrows category of Mechanical Exception is going to go down too well, but then we have chronographs on Monday and Divers on Tuesday before it all goes arts for arts sake again
  3. A clear win for the most legible watch this time. Next topic is Calendar and Astronomy
  4. Here's a tip. Use screwdrivers to measure if you need to cut at 1.4 or 1.6 mm.
  5. Don't follow rules, break them. I have happily worn £3000 watches while driving a £400 car and wearing a £80 Asda suit. I couldn't care less what anyone thought. (IWC, Alfa 145 cloverleaf. George suit) @Karrusel if anyone mocked my B&Q wellies on a shoot, they would find their range rover with lead shaped holes . Never take the mick out of someone holding a firearm.
  6. Today I bought a Gucci, a Longines, a WW2 pocket watch, three Omega's and some others but I spent time doing a gentle restoration on a pin pallet, chrome Elco because it appealed to me.

  7. There are several different methods of regulating a watch, and each has the potential to slip and write the hairspring off. Without a timegrapher it will take several days and a sheet of paper
  8. nope I quite like the key winding throwback - the watch has no crown
  9. More of a challenge this one, as few of us will have even heard of some of the brands never mind see them or have owned one. Maybe that helps - would the Bugalri have got more votes if it was a Zenith? Possibly.
  10. I didn't pick the category names, just pick a watch and wind your necks in
  11. money no object, which would you pick? Little harder this one
  12. The winner is De Bethune. The next category is Iconic, which does have some more 'real' watches (in this context)
