  1. Thanks everyone. I’ve already had two people stop me admiringly and ask what it was. I’ve only been out for an hour!
  2. Been coveting this model for ages. One finally came up that was appreciably under list price, not new but unused and guaranteed By Tudor for full 2 years. also this one has the benefit of the NATO style Tudor fabric strap as well as a brand new full steel bracelet. I've almost never worn any watch on a NATO up until now, but I have to say this one looks the dogs bollocks - as we used to say in the old days. Seriously smart but slightly casual. The eyes have already popped out on stalks back home when shown to my two sons in their 20s! It’s caused a massive dent in my little watch f
  3. I bought and sold a white 8 DAYS recently. Lovely watch but I really wanted the black one. Great advice from Scott. I am now convinced it’s the Radiomir Black Seal small seconds PAM00754 for me. Once I’ve got over the shock of my latest arrival today. Good luck with the hunt - definitely try a few on for size and comfort and make sure you’re really comfortable you’re going to love it.
  4. Thanks Scott only problem is the exclusions and the limits. It says up to £1000?only. Some of the fine print on these sites also exclude jewellery and watches very specifically
  5. Sorry Should say NOT COST THE EARTH of course! its about £2500. Last time I sent something it cost nearly £200 but it did get there safe and sound in 2 days!
  6. My nephew in Derby has asked me to source a specific watch and send it direct to his cousin (my other nephew) in Adelaide! I’m happy to oblige but it’s not a cheap piece and I want it to go fully insured any ideas, anyone?
  7. Lots more DIY today, enhancing my working at home environment. Braun Classic. My Go-to DIY watch.
  8. I was up to 67 watches in total at one point - Two months ago. Utterly bonkers really. I’ve sold a bundle so now down to 53. I would really like to offload or bin or sell all the older ones that literally never get worn. Thinking about applying a very strict “if it’s not been worn for 3 months it can go” rule. That might get me down to about 25-30 I guess. I reckon that would be reasonable and if I then employed a “one in one out” policy, all would be well with the world. At least until I get bored, or there’s another fair, or another manufacturer clearance sale!
  9. The story behind the Santos Model name is well known. Brazilian pioneering aviator Santos Dumont was frustrated having to use a pocket watch to time his initial flying attempts when vying with the Wright brothers to be recognised as the first man to fly. He complained about it to his pal Louis Cartier who promptly created the first pilot watch and named the model after his buddy. Wristwatchesformen weren’t really a thing. Some ladies had bracelets with fancy miniature clocks on them, but this was the first true gents wristwatch, invented for a pilot when pilots weren’t even a thing yet. Ver
  10. No DIY for me today and we are entertaining friends, so I can wear something a bit “nice”. Recent new arrival. A Cartier Santos 100 with a fantastic backdrop story. One that I’ve coveted for some years and finally found the exact right one...
  11. Working on various Saturday DIY bits today - fitting secondary glazing, changing in-line water purifier filter, wall mounting a new TV, wrapping a massive watch box, as you do! I have therefore gone for cheap and robust but ever so slightly stylish......
