  1. Well, after I said "a lovely addition to the collection, and I'm really pleased with it" the watch is now........... SOLD! I guess you could call it the ultimate catch and release, or maybe I've just got a short attention span. Anyway, I made the mistake of having a quick look in the Sales Corner "just out of interest..." and I think we can all guess what happened......... I saw something from @Roy that I simply had to have, so the G-Shock had to go before I became too attached to it. You've got to love this place, haven't you...
  2. Received this nice G-Shock from @Rotundus today, and wanted to say a public thank you: It was originally part of a raffle by @scottswatches for Macmillan, and I missed out on that (my lucky streak really has deserted me these days! ) so when it came up for sale shortly afterwards I couldn't resist it. I've never seen this model before, the design looks a bit "retro" by G-Shock standards, but condition is pretty much pristine and as new. The proportions are different to most other G's, with a fairly small but quite thick case. All the usual functions are there, so that means various
  3. @Roy, I think I might have inadvertently breached that rule as well, in my thread yesterday about my late father's Wedgewood collection. Please feel free to delete it if that's the case, and I will open up a new thread in the sales section instead.
  4. Something a bit different for me today, and one that I've hardly worn, so nice to give this lovely Fossil some wrist time:
  5. The mighty (and appropriately named) TW Steel Goliath for me today:
  6. A lovely TW Steel for me today:
  7. This ^ is exactly what I do, and I've never been defeated by even the most stubborn case back. Just be careful, use a twisting motion, and if you're not confident it would be a good idea to wear protective gloves and goggles. If it's that difficult to get off, you will almost certainly need a simple case back closer to pop it back on. Not a disaster, they are cheap from ebay, I think mine was about 12 quid: Easy to use, comes with a wide selection of dies, and very satisfying when the case back snaps in with a click
  8. Not a bad start to the year (considering I'm supposed to be reducing the collection...), with these so far: Pagani Design chrono: And my pride and joy, this lovely Avia from my wonderful father, who sadly passed away on his 93rd birthday just after Christmas: Working fine, and keeping time to 1 minute a day, which is quite remarkable for a watch that is probably older than me
  9. Saw this little beauty outside the front of our house this morning. I think he's a kestrel, but regardless of whether that's right or wrong, we are calling him "Kes" anyway!
