  1. Some people have way too much cash clearly! http://www.hodinkee.com/sale-of-bond-watch-at-christies-auction-sends-157250-to-orbis-international
  2. Come in now - which of you clowns are bidding on it? ;)
  3. Google UK Royal Mail for shipping price calc. As a rough guide I think roughly £10-£20 to ship a normal size / weight boxed watch to the other half of the globe. No tax / duty for stuff leaving the UK - check your AUS regs for inbound parcels. Send Phillionaire a message - he lives in the a**e end of no where down there so I imagine he buys mainly by post so might be able to advise you! ;) :cheers: Rich.
  4. 10watches I think - they don't seem to do them now though...
  5. My custom SKX007 today - have a good weekend all! :)
  6. Go for it with the coloured leather - maybe Toshi or Orb Straps to make you a nice chunky one?
  7. Half way through my reply I started to get deja vu - see previous discussion here: http://www.thewatchforum.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=56159&st=0&p=571294&hl=+media%20+server&fromsearch=1&#entry571294 Most of my comments still stand but the prices for media servers have absolutely crashed now! :thumbsup:
  8. No experience of Sonos personally but I have / have used various streaming options. A few observations: Depending on your phone / computer you may already have a streaming source with no requirement for additional gear. A lot of home media drives (NAS) have a media server built in. My new £50 Netgear router has one built in I discovered last night. This means you can have a constant source of media effectively on demand within the house that you can then play on enabled players / phones / computers etc. Current gen games consoles do media streaming, some of the latest TVs and digi boxes too.
  9. Absolutely ghastly Rog ...... in a good way!!! :thumbsup:
  10. Hodinkee article: http://www.hodinkee.com/the-james-bond-submariner-turns-50-today
  11. Gets me to thinking - what would people offer me in exchange for the very nice home cinema set up I've got spare since I moved in with my girlfriend (who works for a hifi manufacturer so has a ripper of a system of her own - what a girl. Lol) I'm off to take some pics and get model numbers from the gear in storage at the parents place! :P
  12. Nice Davey! I think I'll go for a dig for tradable items later myself. :)
  13. I want to get some Jeep parts shipped from the Netherlands to UK (s/hand bargain) but struggling to find a reasonable price for the shipping. Parcel is 100cm x 100cm x 40cm (20kg) Best I've found so far is approx £100 shipping. Any better suggestions please? :cheers: Rich.
  14. Sorry it's a rotten photo - wearing this!
  15. I'm always intruiged to know who gets what in trade - lets see some pics of what you swapped out in the Trades section please? :cheers: Rich.
  16. iOS6 is fine for me - my iPhone 4 seems to run better with it. To add Google Maps web app go to it in Safari and add bookmark, add to home screen. :cheers: Rich.
  17. That's a nice looking chunky watch Mach - you feeling ok? Orange Monster next? ;)
  18. Lifestyle change is definitely the key to keeping the weight off and staying in the shape you want. Short term health kicks always lapse and you undo the work otherwise! Keep up the good work guys! :)
  19. Can't beat some nice vintage freebies - congrats! :thumbsup:
