  1. Kingsmen agents wear Bremont.
  2. I have just had an ad pop up on my Facebook feed an advert for Wimbledon Watch co Watches. Nothing unusual about that, I get loads of watch adverts, and I always click on them because I like looking at pictures of watches, whether they be high end unaffordables of rubbish cheapies. Wimbldon watches definitely fall into the rubbish cheapies category. I won't put in a link, you can work Google just as well as I if you want to look. What set these apart is the description of the movement, which claims to be the latest oriental Quartz that never needs batteries. This could be a major technological breakthrough. It could be that the watch is totally disposable and not worth the price of a new Renata. Or it could be that the person that wrote the copy for the website knows less about watches than the squirrel that raids my bird feeder.
  3. On a Jenny it has to be beads of rice bracelet, it's part of their unique look.
  4. Can't wait to see this. My guess is Digital in plastic case on gold coloured expanding bracelet. That should fit the description of "as far away from my usual tastes as possible".
  5. But not the blue plastic pin pusher you see for sale everywhere. Originally quoted wrong post.
  6. Big weighty diver? Have a look at Boschett You will have to look second hand to match your price target, but they are pretty industuctable, so I don't think you need worry.
  7. I had one of these, I have since moved it on. It was a lovely looking thing but the large face with no bezel ment that it wore far too large to be a dress watch, and it was too dressy to be anything else. So it never got worn. Yes they are UK based but the watches are from China with Chinese Seagull movements. I would say that they are realistically priced for what they are and I had no trouble selling mine when I decided to let it go.
  8. Simple rule. Your watch should always be worth less than your motorcycle.
  9. It looks like Harold Pinchbeck have lovingly handcrafted that watch using parts from the DEGAZ Seiko modders website.
  10. That's not a Mecca-Quartz. The Mecha-Quartz is a Quartz Chrono with a stopwatch that resets anti clockwise like a mechanical chronograph rather than rotating clockwise using the stepper motor.
  11. My guess is that it indicates that the sub-dials are in chronograph mode, rather than indicating the alarm status.
  12. If you had taken the same approach as me to the royal wedding, you would now be able to enjoy a beer in a garden with neatly trimmed hedges and lawn after eating a rather good home made curry.
  13. There is a Japanese movie in which the Yamato is extracted from the Pacific sea bed, and sent into space to fight with aliens and save humanity. Honestly, it's not as bad as it sounds.
