  1. Yep, dropped my Hamilton Khaki Field Quartz a while ago and the sapphire now has a crack running across it. Not just a scratch but a proper crack. So not shattered but not far off.
  2. My current fave ana digi is this Casio. Solar atomic so you don't have to worry about a thing
  3. I've got this one, which I rather like. Have had a fair few others in the past and they're great little watches
  4. This seems to have become my go to Wednesday watch IMG_20151118_075318 by Olly Clarke, on Flickr
  5. That Mako (in orange) was the first watch I bought after getting into watches. Really solid and handsome piece
  6. Seamaster midsize quartz on Nato - perfect weekend watch IMG_20151114_144914 by Olly Clarke, on Flickr
  7. I was amazed when I saw that yesterday, seems out of character for Eddie although I understand the reasons why he has made the decision. The company taking over is the same one that took over WatchUseek about a year ago and I think the general opinion was that that move was for the worse. There was certainly a mass exodus of users
  8. That's really lovely. I'm kind of convinced that 2 handed quartz is the way to go for dress watches - thin, understated, reliable. Love it
  9. That's true for me too, I never buy watches I don't think I won't wear, but I often end up not wearing watches I buy!
  10. This one again for me Checked the timing of it today and it's gained 5 seconds since I had the battery changed in December 2013
  11. Nato seems like a good choice, I think it would look good on black leather with a white stitch as well
  12. I think it's a depth gauge. While the colour scheme isn't to my taste it's actually a really neat watch. It has a timer function so you can see how long you've been diving for. Hard to explain, but basically a press of the crown resets the hands to 12 and then the start counting minutes and seconds. I'd love a more traditional looking watch with that feature
  13. There was a certain amount of interest in this when Vinny posted it on the Sales Forum so as the buyer I thought I'd provide an update It arrived today and it's probably fair to say it's a mixed bag, which is completely in line with my expectation. I won't wear all the watches, but certainly got my money's worth (in fact it ended up being 5 watches and a fitness band) and the G-Shock alone is almost worth the price of admission IMO. Thanks to Vinny for a good deal and an an enjoyable experience. Here are some pics I took while unboxing it all: 2 of the watches will definitely be worn, 2 will probably go to charity and 1 and the fitness band will be moved on somehow, I'll let you guess which fall into which category! ^^^^^^^ (this one is better than it looks in the pic) ^^^
  14. Seiko SND377P2 on Time Factors Nato
  15. I added an Archimede Pilot 39h to my collection a while ago and I love it. Simple, classic aesthetic, great quality and a good size. IMG_20151018_093200 by Olly Clarke, on Flickr
  16. I'm genuinely excited about this. We've just rewatched all 6 movies as a family and while the newer trilogy really is pretty awful there's scope for this to be really good. I don't think Abrams will make a film that will stand the test of time like the original trilogy has, but I do think he'll deliver a very entertaining 2 hours.
  17. I had a Swiss Legend years ago and I have to say the quality was very good for the price. Really solid piece. I'd give it a few days on the wrist and then decide if it's a keeper or not.
