  1. Thanks, watched many of them and the heat method is the one I tried, with no success. I will plow through some more just in case. DOH, you know, I didnt even consider that.
  2. Good morning folks, Looking for some advice and or guidance. I have a Phoibos PX002C which I like a great deal, and I chose the cyclops eye version when buying it, but after a year of wearing it i have now grown to hate that blinking eye staring back at me. I had a look online and have seen that it is possible to remove it using heat, but that hasnt worked for me - and other than burning my fingers I am back in the same position (only hating it a little more as a result). And I wondered if you might know an alternate approach? It wont kill me to keep it on, but I would much rather have it aff. Cheers folks.
  3. id be afraid that with my eyes i couldnt see yhe hands ;) i prefer it on a leather to be fair. good luck with it, hope you enjoy it.
  4. its built like a tank too, though doesnt feel it - if that makes sense. one of my more elegant pieces
  5. I have the 29er, lovely watch, really keen on the simplicity of it. looks good ont he bracelet, but i think it looks better on a nice leather strap
  6. one of the swatch crew here, i think this one (or something very similar to it)
  7. Ive had a look and the leather looks lovely, but Im with you bracelet all the way. Also helps that they do it in a 39mm (my sweet spot). And its a weird thing, my missus has a couple and loves them, but Ive always favoured Omega, never quite got the Tag bug, but I hadnt known the Carerra exisited to be honest.
  8. I was never really a Tag fan, my wife loves them, but this is a lovely piece. Beautiful, and very understated which i like, with a birthday coming up, there could be some hints dropped for this one.
  9. Nothing worse, glad i was able to point you in the right direction. its a cracking film, as my grandad would say they dont make them like that any more.
  10. you could be doing what I do, mixing james stewart with henry fonda. sounds like mortal storm, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032811/?ref_=tt_urv
  11. ahh the one that got away. I envy you this one, cracker.
  12. its funny how some watches make you react, I am the same with Hublot. just as well we have as much choice
  13. easy, it will be my christopher ward chrono, not gelling at all with the thing, as pretty as it is, as comfortable as it is, just doesn't do anything for me. why do i still have it, very good question, probably as im too lazy to look our the box, papers etc to sell it. though this may spur me on.
  14. I have two myself, granted im not bonding with my chrono, but I love my trident c60. have to echo the thoughts on service, build quality and materials. been more than a happy camper with me. Will more than likely to get another when the wifes not looking. and whilst i like the old logo, I have to admit to being completely unbothered by the new one, either does me.
  15. Lovely piece, and certainly looks bigger than its dimensions. Like you i was bitten by the German bug and looked for a while before spending more than I intended too. I bought the 29er (standard version for my small wrists, the Big 29er made me look like I was a kid again wearing my dads watch) three years ago, lovely piece. Excellent piece, simple elegant and robust (if you can have both). Not the most talked about maker, but I have been more than happy with my purchase.
