  1. I think the dynamic is the prettiest in my collection at the moment
  2. Been out with the dog in the wind and rain, so gshock this morning
  3. Not quite the same as a full smart watch, but I have a garmin 735xt gps watch for running and cycling. I do a fair bit of trail running and it’s great for that as you can upload the details and it shows masses of route details as well as heart rate, speed, pace, time etc etc. I like it a lot for what I use it for, but you can’t change the dial I don’t think. A colleague at work has the Samsung gear3 which is nice in the flesh, a nice size, well made and you can customise the dial. i like them both for what they do but wouldn’t swap my proper watches for them.
  4. Don’t mind the dial and roses, but the “swing low” on the rotor is naff IMHO. Especially given what the watch will probably cost
  5. I tried changing my SMP from bracelet to strap a while back. Bought a nice leather strap with contrasting stitching and swapped it over. It lasted 15mins maximum before the bracelet was back on. It just looked and felt wrong. even the 710 commented it looked awful and she normally doesn’t give 2hoots about my watches . it just didn’t work for me so it’ll be interesting to see what you come up with
  6. Well worn manual wind Omega for me tonight.
  7. Omega F300 Cone all day - old pic
  8. I love my SMP and generally like my Omegas but cannot see where they’ve got the pricing for this version. It looks quite bland to me and not even with a bracelet. I’m out
  9. Vostok KGB manual winder for the first day back to work and a belated Happy New Year to all. With one thing and another I’ve not been on the forum much in 2019. I hope to improve this year
  10. I like that, very like the old military issued CWCs. As has been said the mechanical monogram on the dial seems a little pointless, but wouldn’t stop me buying one if the price was right. The dial is uncluttered and I don’t mind the textured look. I can’t see the article either so price is a mystery.
  11. That looks like a big list. i helped my cousins husband strip and rebuild a 90 years ago. That had new doors, rear tub, rear quarter chassis, 300tdi engine conversion with correct gearbox, boost alloys with br Goodrich ATs, new side steps, window & door seals, stainless exhaust and a respray in Monte Carlo blue. It looked the mutts nuts. Plus all the little bits like stainless bolts etc. It was fairly easy to do really. Like a giant mecanno set. I think we put 6 coats of red oxide and about 4 coats of chassis black paint on the chassis once it was stripped of all but the engine and gearbox. It was then wax oiled inside and out. I would imagine it'll last a while. They sold it less than a year afterwards. Wish I'd have bought it really. Good luck with the rebuild. I imagine it won't be cheap, but well worth it.
  12. Some lovely looking watches there. My favourite is the memosail- love the look of it.
  13. I really like the Everest and wish I’d not let my mate “acquire” the one I had from me. I’d quite like another.
  14. Ask the usual questions about condition and time keeping and buy the seller based on their answers and feedback. My Smiths Imperial ran, but time keeping was all over the place. It turned out the baLance staff was broken and this proved very difficult to source, as there are limited supplies and limited people willing to work on them and guarantee their work. A new balance staff, service and crown was £150 and an 8 week wait. Be prepared that theRe may be additional costs after initial purchase. You may fall lucky and not have any, you may not be so lucky. Once fixed it keeps great time and is a great watch to wear.
