  1. mmnnn ... the black version got me thinkin' ... please excuse the slightly rough quick and dirty photo edit but it gives the general idea I think ... t'would be nice :)
  2. I wouldn't go as far as calling it crap but definitely not cool in my eyes :stop:
  3. Like a lot of members here I go through phases when watches are put on the back boiler for a bit whilst I get on with other things in my life, but when the wis-fire is re-kindled it's time to do some wheelin' & dealin' :wink2: and although I've bought and sold on other forums I feel most comfortable and relaxed on the RLT forums ... the friendly attitude here is second to none on the internet in my opinion :grin: :rltb: :toot:
  4. Was tempted to buy one of the Precisionist's just to enjoy the smooth movement but so far I can get beyond the 'unpleasant' styling of the watch in general ... I wouldn't go so far as call the design ugly ... but there's something about the current batch that make them look cheap which is a real shame 'cause the movement is mesmerisingly smooooth ! Think I'll hold off for a bit until more models are released :dontgetit:
  5. Apart from my late father's pocketwatch for the obvious reasons I don't think I could ever part with my Seiko Alpinist 8F56 ... a fantastic watch and very robust with it's titanium case and sapphire glass, also very accurate if worn daily, mine sits at about +1 per month ... it's my work watch or 'beater' if you prefer! Sorry about the bad picture, just took it now with a flash on, bad reflections from the unmarked sapphire crystal. :thumbsup:
  6. Cyclops lens ... grrrrr ! :thumbsdown: Fat / Thick cases that interfere with cuffs / sleeves Any watch with jewels in it :shocking: :disgust:
  7. great watch at a great price, I paid a bit more than that for mine but well worth it ... mine arrived with a full charge 'H' and has never dropped lower, I leave it at the window when not wearing so it gets plenty of top-up time. mine updates daily at 2:02am :)
  8. that's a beauty mate, health to wear :good:
  9. You're right to be cautious, I am too but regards ebay I rarely get into a bidding war, I just place the highest amount I'm willing to go for a particular item or what I think it's worth and leave it, if I win, then a big hurrah for me, if not then it wasn't for me anyways :) That method keeps me happy and I never second guess myself.
  10. I have to agree ... I used to love logging in to see the updates and snapping up an import Seiko before anyone else ... distant memories now but I'm guessing Roy must be pretty busy ... good times
  11. :eek: you sinner you .... ignoring a perfectly good watch like that ... :crybaby: I look at mine all the time (pun alert) :)
  12. what a great watch ... I like very much :)
  13. Latest beater has arrived ... very comfy and easy to read :)
  14. Watching Stephen Hendry scrape through in the snooker yesterday and he was wearing a fair chunk of steel on his wrist ... don't know what it was but it looked too big for him :P
  15. I'd looked at the GW-5000-1JF DLC too, it was tempting but have ordered the GW-M5600-1ER as a "safer" cost option to see if I like the styling ... it'll be my first Casio G-Shock :D I saw someone on youtube with the GW-M5600BC-1ER and black braclet instead of the resin strap ... now that was tasty !
  16. I have to admit, Casio's never really interested me until recently ... I've always preferred the classic Seiko styling from the early 80's but I have to admit the GW-M5600-1ER sorta floats my boat, not overly bulky and atomic too ... kinda tempting for a rough and ready beater :)
  17. Being a good Citizen today and donning my Cosmotron :D have a good friday chaps !
  18. best. post. ever. ^^^ agreed mate ... I've never heard of a 'funny off' before ... hats off yes, bully off yes, **** off yes but a funny off ... erm ... nope !
  19. well done Danny on getting ignored with your first post ... I'm still trying to get ignored but it's taken many years, what's your secret mate, I'm here to learn ?
  20. Ouch ! .... great watch but O U C H ! :fear:
  21. I voted equally the same ... I enjoy both B)
  22. I always think I have enough until the next one that catches my eye ... I think all wis's are similarly afflicted and therefor utterly doomed :bangin:
  23. yes, very frustrating ... the longest I ever waited was 6 weeks for a Poljot to arrive from the Ukraine :wallbash: but it all turned out rosey in the end :thumbsup:
