  1. I really, like really need to get back to posting on here
  2. That's because I'm special
  3. Hehe....nah...few things happened in my life that sort of changed my outlook....mum died, had a little bit of a health scare, and my best mate died aged 40..... So.....i sort of, well, did stuff a little different :) Spend very little time online at all, packed in the smoking 9th june 1st, lost 4 stone, got fit, gave away 12 (yep 12 watches) to family and friends, oh, and moved across the country....we are now resident in Manchester of all places! Those of you that know me will know the reason why we did that. So, healthier, happier, but my interest in watches has waned.....i still have my jsar, poljot and an orsa, but theres nothing out there that gets me going anymore..... So there you have it :) good to see some of the old faces on here, and i do hope tyat your all keeping sell....and if anyone ever sees strangetoo or the other guy from corby whos name escapes me, tell them i forgive them....still havent recieved my 6309 mod or 007 mod :) Peace......... Shawn
  4. still a hommage however way you look at it...... er.....LOL
  5. Right...this is basically a knock off isn't it? Im sorry, but this is sailing way to close to the wind to be a "hommage" and is a blatant copy of a classic....."with aged patina" surely this is a piss take? A nod to a classic is cool, but to do such a blatant rip-off really is taking the piss.... There's a touch of double standards and hypocrisy around what is/is not acceptable.... the line between wearing a hommage and a fake is so blurred its laughable....... I couldnt care less one way or another if someone wants to wear a turkish beach knock off rep of a rolex, or this...it really doesn't bother me......but, some of you are so quick to get on a bandwagon if someone does wear a replica/knock off/panny-a-like or whatever......
  6. proper ***** week....best mate died aged 40 last week, traveled down to london yesterday for his funeral.....
  7. yep....twice..... first time was in orlando when a copper asked me about my watch in a 7/11 2nd time was a director a few weeks ago who came to visit my store from head office...... both times was wearing my jsar
  8. think its a winner bry......im a huge fan of some of your work bry and know the quality of the goods your doing is very high........i think there could be a market for this......would love the frames of my old raybans redone!
  9. Seiko make some of the finest most refined watches your ever likely to wear......the space walk springdrive is around the $25k mark, the astron range is upwards of 3 or 4k and the credor can cost over $400,000 i think you may have to ask yourself the question if your wearing the watch for yourself or wearing it to impress others, which, it sounds like you are..... personally, i prefer any watch sterile....
  10. welcome from appleton roebuck :D
  11. all swiss watches are made in a dusty old workshops by grey haired watchmakers in brown coats......who lavish there time and attention making every watch by hand...... :D Think i might have seen this......and i think they were talking about development of a new model......theres a lot of myth and legend around some swiss watch house's......
  12. going a bit retro this afternoon.....on way back from manchester in a bit, so will have Heaven 17's "penthouse & Pavements" and "the luxury gap" on
  13. turn left into forest lane, turn right into woodgrange road, left into romford road, then onto green street.... :D at the bottom of upton park market there used to be a block of flats on rochester ave....theres an estate there now.....about 300 yds from the Boleyn....the only thing apart from the football thats worth going for is the pie mash on barking rd.....Nathans.....
  14. Pulled down in 1998, there's now a Morrisons on the site. A great pity, IMHO... Had a walk round there last year.....a major shock for me and Tina......We went to Hoxton Market for Pie & Mash at Cookes, and hardly anything building wise has changed round there at all...Tina's old school, flats where she grew up and pubs were still there, and on the way back, decided to have a look round Westfield....Stratford has changed beyong recognition from when i were a lad :D The Swan pub has gone, but strangely the old stratford center is still there! Heres a pic of my old flats........
  15. another of my favorite buildings....unless you come from the same part of london as i, then you might struggle to know what and where this was
  16. Now, i love modern architecture, and i think this man was a complete genius.....not a view shared by many, but i love the brutalist design http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfron_Tower http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenkerry_House
  17. yep.....the space center :D where there just finishing off a new hanger to display this.....
  18. wrong side of the water merlin :D
