  1. It should obviously have been the Omega.
  2. Tis a beautiful little watch to be sure!
  3. This is something a little different and for that reason I like it, but as the dials are all unique I guess you would need to see one in the flesh and fall in love with it rather than simply ordering online as you may get a dial that just doesn’t click with you.
  4. Funnily enough yes. I ordered a £10 Chinese quartz watch from Alibaba for the grey wool strap. Not bad for the money.
  5. I saved up the tokens from something for that James Bond watch when I was a lad but when I sent them off I got a letter back saying they’d run out. Devastated. Probably the underlying cause of my kid in a sweet shop approach today.
  6. Thanks chaps. Yes blue rubber strap, very comfy though I do wonder what it would look like on a blue alligator leather strap. All in good time!
  7. My new Omega Aqua Terra. I've had my eye on these for a while and one came up at a good price so I took the plunge. Very happy I did. Sits somewhere between a dress watch and a sports watch, stylish but chunky. I love the detail on the dial, reminds me more of a Grand Seiko than an Omega. I think Omega make some superb watches, definitely on a par with Rolex even if they don't have quite the same brand recognition. If you can get a decent discount on them, which is getting harder these days, then I think they might be the best value luxury watches out there.
  8. From the album: GASHEAD

  9. I’ve also had the original version and it was an awesome watch, just a tad large. This new one looks great though.
  10. I think it’s a combination of the massive rotor and the display caseback. I even sent a video to Moser in case I had a dud but they said it was usual. Just made the watch sound tinny, which I couldn’t handle for that price. The dial was absolutely beautiful though, so a real shame.
  11. I don’t think it looks too bad. I’ve seen a lot worse on here
  12. I guess I got mine at a decent discount while everything was a bit scary but it did take a fair while to sell even once things had settled down. Moser might be the next F P Journe but not yet. Maybe I’ll regret selling it when they’re going for £25k in a couple of year’s time but I really couldn’t stand the rotor noise and much prefer a good solid Rolex, even if their designs are a little tame by comparison.
  13. If there’s one thing I just can’t stand, it’s entry level Patek Oh, I bought my Moser Pioneer (Cosmic Green) brand new at the start of the pandemic for £8.4k and sold it for £7.3k. Beautiful dial but a touch too big on the wrist and I just couldn’t stand the noisy movement. Took ages to sell. Try before you buy.
  14. I’ve bought a few off of Chrono24 and usually all goes well. A couple of minor niggles have been sorted by negotiation with the seller.
  15. The 116000 is a great watch although prices have started to go slightly crazy this year. Until recently I had the white grape dial version which was beautiful but I found it just a touch too small for my 7.25 inch wrist so moved it on. It took about a day to sell.
  16. I've had three and still own two of them! Often available at a heavy discount which makes them fantastic watches for the money.
  17. I've had a couple of Muhle Glashutte watches and they were both excellent quality
  18. That's a cool Sinn. I've had two U1's but ended up selling both.
  19. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but the truth is that if you'd have put £100 in Amazon or even Dominos shares ten years ago then you'd have done better than with any watch. We don't beat ourselves up about that so why fret over the watches?
  20. I've been sensible enough never to invest in a loupe. Terrified that I'll find fault with all my watches and never buy another!
