  1. No different to if petrol delivery drivers go on strike, or a war in the middle east pushes up up by 50% EVs have one major issue as far as I am concerned, and that is lifespan of the batteries. I am not taking range, but after 7 years will they hold charge? I prefer the environmental mantra reduce, reuse and recycle. Has anyone seen what it costs in CO2 Emissions to make any new car? Better emissions may not make any difference if you are digging up ores, making glass, purifying metals, producing plastics, shipping around the world unless you are doing big mileage.
  2. Welcome. Expect to purchase many more watches!
  3. Seiko for me too, but this is the rarer (MUCH rarer) manual wind 6300 movement
  4. I wear vintage watches 99% of the time, so anything 42mm+ feels huge on me. But I too fell for a Panerai, and did my spec needs. 44mm, display back, sub seconds, hand wind and titanium case to reduce the weight. I could wear it quite happily, and would buy another.
  5. Rio I believe, but it wasn't sold until 2020 according to the paperwork . Not everything has to be Omega though. This was for Barcelona 1992 and these for Atlanta 1996
  6. Like all big companies C24 have marketing departments that do occasionally overload on buzz words, but as @Daveyboyz says they don't set the prices. Well, they never used to but now they are starting to stock watches themselves which changes their market position - do they have programs spotting if a watch is listed under value and they buy it before the listing is offered to anyone else?
  7. Thanks. Omega don't mention an Enamel dial in their blurb, so I don't think so. Certainly has the look though
  8. It will be an Olympics like no other 'And the gold medal for the best chrono seconds hand counterweight goes to Switzerland'
  9. I can only wear this in the morning for about 20 minutes until it gets too tight. spare link coming I love the quirkiness of this design
  10. Loving the pogueness of this dial From 1979
  11. Have you seen what a steel auto blue dial royal oak is fetching now?
  12. Yep - and it was Los Angeles in the brochure for the steel bezels so this much have been an early one. That Y500,000 price was for an 18k version, and only one Grand Seiko cost more in 1991 (which had an 18k bracelet - the leather strap version was Y425,000 for the three hander GS
  13. In case anyone wants to see what these look like then here is a quick and dirty pic Spot the mistake Seiko made?
  14. Deals on Grand Seiko's are not easy to get - I bought a new one as it was only a few hundred more than a three year old one. The Type XX I understand the not getting thing, but that changed for me once I got one. The Moser reservation may come to nothing - I have people agree to buy a watch via C24 only to then send a message saying they will offer x price. Until I say no the watch is reserved for them. Very annoying all round, especially if the offer is 50% of the price. a leftfield choice, and one I know nothing about, is Blancpain fifty fathoms? Or how about a Panerai?
