  1. Classic bike! I will make a point of NOT wearing a watch whilst I lay under my 4x4 and paint the chassis with Hammerite today! :D
  2. How about getting either a custom strap made by either Toshi or Orb? I used to have a Chrono TT1 and before I eventually sold it I considered a leather strap to get me to wear it more. I think I spoke to both Rich (Toshi) and Paul (Orb) and they indicated they could make me one no problem. :cheers: Rich.
  3. Good on your for reading up BEFOREHAND rather than showing up with a clunker and asking if you did ok! :) Plan to spend ages more reading up and spend some time watching eBay and let items go until you get a proper feel for things. Lke you say it could be a big investment and you want to get it right. Oh and welcome btw! :cheers: Rich.
  4. Slightly annoyed with myself just now - always fancied a 6139 Pogue, (as some of you may recall) stumbled onto a fairly nice one a few months ago, wore it for a few weeks when I got it, haven't worn it since! Either materialism is leaving me in general (partly true - I've been doing the life laundry bit most of this year) or the chase for a grail is better than having it!!! Harumph! :( :cheers: Rich.
  5. Yes very cheap - think they are about 4 quid including postage!
  6. Some girls want diamonds, some sports cars - my good lady informs me that tacky eBay Hong Kong tiger watches are the order of the day.... :) :cheers: Rich.
  7. Great to see more progress as ever Paul - more power to you mate! :thumbsup:
  8. Not bad at all - they're £80-85 on Amazon so could be a good catch. Did you go for one?
  9. Check out the DW-56RT* models. http://watchshock.com/archive/Casio/G-Shock/DW-5xxx/ http://www.casio.com/products/archive/Watches/G-Shock/DW56RTB-7/ http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/wat/en/qw2991.pdf :cheers: Rich.
  10. Just sounds like a new buyer getting drawn into buying other items. No alarm bells for me.
  11. Nah you'd hear the hacking sounds of her being sick in the pot plant in the next room if that was the case. :wallbash: If they aren't keen on tablets try crushing them up with pestle and mortar, adding a little warm water and then squirting it into their mouth. We feed one of ours joint supplements that way no problem every day / wouldn't fancy our chances of administering a tablet! Probably helps that they are chicken flavoured though.... :lol:
  12. If he's into making stuff then how about sourcing some plans on the web and getting him a stack of balsa, beech, nylon covering etc to build the lot from scratch?
  13. what store did you get them from? i will head to my nearest one in Springburn tomorrow.................. Blantyre store.
  14. FYI - back this week. £6.99 :cheers: Rich.
  15. Get onto Casio UK and see how much a module would be. I find their prices surprsingly reasonable - much better than certain web shops that are obviously a load of stuff then marking it up MASSIVELY for re-sale. :cheers: Rich.
  16. Check out yobokies (via Google) - he does cracking solid link Oyster, Lumpy (Anvil) and President (Hammer) bracelets. His Oyster bracelets come in various forms, one of which has solid machined end pieces. I've got a Hammer bracelet and it's tremendous. :cheers: Rich.
  17. Hurrah! :vinsent: :hunter: and :beer: :beer: :beer:
  18. Nice Phil! :thumbsup: I really must get round to buying one rather than letting my two post-cull autos going flat in between wears. Mind you I might notice the slightly off time keeping of my Pogue more if I wore it more than one day at a time, a prompt to get that service done maybe.... :whistle:
  19. Took this on the way into work this morning then forgot to post it - might as well stick in on now before it becomes Saturday!
  20. GW-7900 recent arrival (via the wanted board here - cheers Ventura!)
  21. Very nice indeed! Damn you both - could be another one for my list! :yes:
