  1. Blimey @Bricey you don't muck about, do you? Your "cheap addition" is right at the top of my self imposed top budget Both lovely looking pieces though, well done mate
  2. This ^ is the correct answer I've got several smartwatches in my collection, and I only bought them because I liked the look of 'em. I don't use any of the "smart" functions, to me they are just nice looking watches, and I enjoy wearing them. I think the Fossil hybrid type are a good compromise, with normal analogue hands and good battery life. I did have a full digital smart watch for a while, but again I only used it as a fancy looking digital watch, and the only function I used was the ability to change the display style Here are mine, starting with the TomTom, which looks quite "old skool" with it's low-res display compared to the more modern type, but I really like it: Next up is a Fossil with an E-ink style background display: And finally a Fossil Q Hybrid, which is Bluetooth but has an analogue subdial for the smartwatch functions (none of which are used by me, as previously mentioned: I've also got an awesome G-Shock, which is Bluetooth connected, but not sure if that is classed as a smartwatch: So there you have it, shock horror, you don't have to use all of the functions, they can also be used as.... gasp.... a watch!
  3. Oooh, apparently they are "diver’s watch experts and the undisputed masters of reimagining such historical prototype watches for the faithful few."
  4. Awesome Spinnaker auto for me today:
  5. Looks great mate, and that strap is a massive improvement over the horrible NATO that @spinynorman seemed to think was a good idea.... See my previous comment................
  6. Yes mate, it has finally happened. I've got two autos now, and I'm not ashamed to say they are both awesome
  7. Steeldive Auto for me today:
  8. I reckon black suede would look great on that one It's a slim case thickness, so whatever strap goes on it will need to be quite thin as well.
  9. I'm not a greedy thief (unlike that despicable tea leaf @Bricey ), so I would only pinch one, and that would be the Omega Seamaster, which is still my all time favourite watch. Oh, who am I kidding, on my way out I might be tempted to pop that Monaco in my pocket as well.......
  10. That has turned out to be a nice looking thing now you've repaired it, but it's not really my cuppa tea, so feel free to offer it up to anyone on here if you like mate
  11. I would only consider having it back if you promised to burn that NATO strap mate Looks much better without the massive crack in the crystal, good work that man I think crystal replacement is something I need to learn. I've already got the press and a selection of nylon discs, but only ever used it for push-on case backs so far. I'll probably start with a practice on my lovely Skymaster, I can't think of any others in my collection that have any damage.
  12. I drive a hard bargain mate I'm wearing the Skymaster today, and despite the non-working digital parts and a slightly scratched crystal, it actually looks quite nice on the wrist and makes a great beater
  13. Oooh, I hadn't thought of that. There is a small rubber "bung" in between the 2 batteries, and I thought they were both the same way round, but of course I might be wrong. Next time I take the watch apart I'll try flipping the large one over and see what happens. Very frustrating, knowing that the digital functions were working previously... If I can get it fully working I might have a go at changing the crystal as well, which is something I've never done before. What could possibly go wrong... Bummer, that's just the sort of thing that would happen to me
  14. Thanks for that mate. The link was dead, but I managed to work it out from the description, and got the stem out. However, after changing both batteries and reassembling the watch, it now has a working analogue part, keeping good time, but the digital display is dead (and that was previously working!) - I really shouldn't attempt these things....
