  1. I keep them pinned to the inside of my beige mackintosh.
  2. Idée fixe. @bdalg1 i’m not a fan of green watches, but the one you showed us would look very good in blue.
  3. I have a feeling that, since you are asking the question, you are unsure in your own mind. I also have a feeling that you wanted everyone to say No, It Looks Fine. Well, you did ask for opinions so...too big.
  4. Didn’t Sigourney Weaver have a run in with that thing in Alien? Perfect example of Ars Gratia Artis.
  5. Brilliant, @Roy. The forum has become much more fun to use and navigate recently. Great work, and thank you.
  6. How much would I spend given unlimited funds? Probably not as much as some might imagine. I would want a beautiful looking, beautifully made and finished watch with a superb movement that did the job really well in terms of precision and accuracy. I am not interested in: Precious metals and jewels. I don't mind yellow gold, but I'm much happier with steel these days. Too many complications. Keep it simple. Perhaps a date, or a chronograph or GMT for the right watch. I don't want one of these things that has 25 complications of which I wouldn't use 20 and wouldn't understand 10. "Ars Gratia Artis". Some of the really high-end watches are an amazing tour-de-force ("because we CAN"), but a lot of them look hideous and often it takes some time to work our how to actually tell what time it is. I'll spend under £20k and have one of these. Or I'll spend less than £10k on one of these:
  7. Two very nice straps, the black and yellow ray is fabulous.
  8. All was going well until French secret agent Raymond Weil (Kad Mérad) and the new head of MI6 Sir Christopher Ward (Benedict Cumberbatch) got involved. That’s a nice profile!
  9. Someone is having a pretty good day. I do like the Orient and the Dreyfuss. I wonder whether Dreyfus ate gâteau St-Honoré on Devils Island? Somehow I doubt it.
  10. My fault. I referenced it in @Bricey ‘s “Busy Week SOTC” Thread.
  11. One of these. Vintage Tissot Navigator World Timer.
