  1. Well, I couldn't stand listening to 17 mins of a guy that sounds like the big one in Penn and Teller, so that failed miserably after about 30 secs... I printed out the 22 page user guide when I first bought the watch, and got as far as "Set the Time" - That's about all I need
  2. That's exactly what I did when mine first arrived. Oh, and tested the backlight, obviously. Then downloaded the Casio App, and quickly realised that was useless, so I deleted it from my phone straight away
  3. See, I keep telling people I'm not just a pretty face - But nobody believes me... It is a beauty mate, and I'm glad you like it. Now go and have a look at the 22 page user guide (or alternatively, do what I do, and just use it to tell the time!)
  4. I recently bought the black and red version of this one, so thought I would see how it compares: Difficult to pick which one I like best - Lucky for me, I don't have to choose between the two
  5. Seems to be a lot of Omega on display today Well, I can't compete with them, but a very nice TW Steel for me today anyway:
  6. TW Steel Goliath for me today: This one always makes me smile, and gets quite a bit of wrist time
  7. Ha ha, nice one mate, you will love it
  8. No problem mate, it's not always obvious, and the split pin can sometimes look like a slotted screw head. I only knew because I've got that exact same watch (bought fairly recently), and I had to take out a couple of links on mine.
  9. Ah, not seen that type, sorry. But no doubt it will be covered by someone on YouTube, which seems to be the go-to place to find out almost everything these days
  10. I always use AO for kitchen appliances, and I recommend them to everyone. I bought a replacement integrated fridge / freezer from them last year, to replace an existing one that wasn't working properly. Fitting the outer doors to the appliance doors was really easy. They come supplied with new tracks that slide both doors together as they open. There will be printed instructions supplied, and also a video on the AO website shows how it's done
  11. I think they're not screws mate, they are more likely to be pins that need to be pressed out with a pin press (in the direction of the arrow on the back)
  12. Predictably, it's the new incoming Casio Edifice for me today, and probably all weekend as well:
  13. OMG, that is the first decent watch I bought when I started working in Germany after leaving college in the late 1970's or early 80's. I suddenly had a load of money coming in, and I remember seeing that in a jeweller's window and thought "oh yes, that looks the bees knees, I've got to have it!". In those days it cost the equivalent of £100, and I thought I was Billy Big-Balls at the time
  14. Yeah, I go through phases..........
  15. Mate, I've already bought 4 Casio Edifices and 1 G-Shock in the past couple of months, so just about the last thing I need is another one...!
  16. Latest incoming Casio Edifice getting a bit of wrist time today, and probably the rest of the week as well: It arrived on Monday, but I've only just got round to adjusting the bracelet to fit. Two links out, and it sits perfectly. Another stunning looking Edifice, and I love it
  17. A belated Happy birthday to you mate That's an excellent haul you've bagged there, I can't even decide which one I like the best (who am I kidding, it's got to be the Seiko - But there's not much between that and the Phoibos)
  18. Weirdly, none of mine have got any sentimental value, they are just watches at the end of the day, but... as you say, it's not always easy to move them on
  19. Yes mate, it's a great watch, and for what I paid it was indeed an absolute no-brainer, even though I didn't "need" another one I have been considering slimming down the collection, but I just haven't got round to it. I don't really need to balance the books, so I haven't got much incentive to flip them. I've built up a decent collection now, but most are just sitting on a shelf unworn, which seems a bit pointless. I might go mad one day and have a massive sale to make some room. As always, it's much easier buying them than letting go and selling some...
  20. Cheers mate, I've managed to bag quite a few bargains this year, and this one is no exception (Note: I can't actually remember how much I paid, but I do know it would have been a lot less than 350 quid )
