  1. I'm still not convinced, does it no favours, especially a diver looks much better on a steel bracelet But hey ho that's just me and each to their own
  2. Similar to @sabailand thoughts, they are one of those things that no matter how much you pay for them they still look like something off the Wednesday market and just make a decent watch look cheap. Years ago I bought a reasonably expensive one thinking I'd save my LV bracelet and it just looked naff
  3. Not me the phone filters did that
  4. Some snaps from last nights stroll to the boozer, other than trips to the supermarket and going to work this is the furthest I've been for weeks.
  5. Do they all actually come with the protective plastic stickers ?? I bought my Seiko Padi new from a small independent, it didn't come out of the window or a display case, the girl got one from the stock room and it never had any stickers on it.
  6. To be fair I usually go for Adidas, trainers are just another thing that have went crazy these days. I was after a couple of pairs recently but within minutes they were sold out and on ebay an hour later for three and four times the price. Some shops are even running raffles. The Signiture Diadoras have doubled in price in last year or so since I got mine. Complete Madness
  7. What a gorgeous sunny day and we can actually go to the boozer this afternoon. Happy Days LV & Borg Signiture Diadoras Elites today
  8. Tried that once but every time I jumped in wearing my porno pants they all did a runner Maybe I was using the wrong approach
  9. The JLC to me is more of a dress suited and booted piece so not really my thing, the Rolex is an everyday anything goes watch so regardless of the money side of things it would be my choice.
  10. Yep depends whether it's a Chinesium test cert or one from a UKAS accredited test house. On keeping its polish, 904L does have a slightly different sheen to it compared to 316L
  11. To me when someone talks of HSS I'm thinking high speed steel or tool steel, back in the day as an apprentice we used to use it to make various cutting tools. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-speed_steel But it is noted here as Hard Stainless Steel. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.thewatchsite.com/attachments/seiko-case-material-codes-pdf.375901/&ved=2ahUKEwjB3pbwlIHwAhUPilwKHRXlBHwQFjAPegQIBxAC&usg=AOvVaw0VraMUJZLmCmAzr2sUSlhX Every day is a school day. As for the 326L vs 904L that's been beat to
  12. She doesn't have one, despite her best efforts they wouldn't let her in the shop. Back in the day she had no idea about invitation only locked doors at those sort of shops. The was a LV shop in one of the high end shopping malls in Singapore, she just walked up and started trying to rattle the locked door off it's hinges all the while the big Growler of a security guard inside just stood stony faced staring back out at her. Funniest thing I'd seen in ages
  13. I know high end novelty stuff usually gets scowled upon here, I mean it's not a Seiko and they make suitcase so it must be tat but..... what does about 0.001% of the watch buying community know about real life. https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/louis-vuitton-tambour-carpe-diem-minute-repeater-introducing And yes if I had some spare change I'd buy one.

Apologies not sure how this got posted twice. Could a mod delete one of the please. @WRENCH @JoT Cheers B.
  15. Forgive me for not being up to speed on this but who is the recipient of this VAT charge ?? The UK Dot Gov or the imaginary Euro Mafioso
