    I've only just installed tapatalk, for the first time, and it found thewatchforum straight off. However tz-uk & wus were already loaded! It must be something to do with log in as I always have to log into WT but tz & wus remember me using a normal browser.
  6. Kärcher window vac. The first gadget I've had that's actually useful.
  7. It takes me back too. I've smoked both those brands in my youth, along with now defunct brands such as Player's Weights, Passing Cloud & Peter Stuyvesant
  8. I very much doubt that the management's remuneration has been reduced, as they will certainly be salaried/under contract. The rig operatives will be trained/skilled as well because the employer won't want to risk the rig or find their insurance doubling. The rates for unskilled cannon fodder may have been frozen,but they are not likely to be in a position to cause much damage with heavy plant

  13. Thos. Russell & Sons did make wristwatches, indeed I have one, the movement is Swiss though, and not decorated
  14. I have the offspring of your car, a '98 C70 T5 auto, comfort personified, I also have the same watch.
