  1. I suppose if you have a yellow gold Rolex then you are showing that you have some wealth and adding diamonds is just adding bling. If you go for white gold or platinum then many people might take it for the stainless steel version and you could argue that you are concealing the true cost and that is maybe stealth wealth.
  2. The OP is looking for a vintage watch to remember the relative that left the money and birthyear watches may well have something to fit the bill. Generally, any watch that is 20 years old is classified as vintage (at 100 years they become antique).
  3. Have a look at www.birthyearwatches.com. Run by a respected member of this forum.
  4. I just look to see if it is a post from you
  5. For the nespresso machine try some Jamaican Blue Mountain or Hawaii Kona - not cheap but really tasty.
  6. Of the three I would go for the Ball but would ignore them all and go for the Steinhart.
  7. On that basis you should only buy the cheapest available. Spend money on a car and you could have an accident, have some low life key it so best only buy an old banger. New pair of jeans - tesco etc rather than Levi just in case you snag them on a nail and rip them. If you can afford the watch whilst still putting food on the table, going on a family holiday etc then go for it. Otherwise wait until you are in that position.
  8. Now you have lost the love for Man U at least Liverpool would have the same shirt colour.
  9. No point buying a Rolex if you don't want to know you are spending a bit of a wedge on your watch. If you ask 100 people `what watch is expensive' then top answer would be Rolex. Of course, if you asked 100 forum members you might get 100 different answers.
  10. Must admit I do not like the dial and it is too small for me. Over the last few years watches have been getting bigger and 36mm has tended to be listed in the women's watch section of catalogues. That just makes me wonder how easy it will be to sell this later = sure it would sell be maybe take a while.
  11. With AXA (and probably all companies) you ned to check the policy and the policy booklet they issue - this can be 30+ pages. Although a single item may be covered up to £10k they may say you have to list any individual item over £X.. I am with them via the AA and last last year reported damage to a laptop and they said `no problem, get it repaired'. Sent the repair receipt and had an email asking if I wanted a cheque or payment direct to my bank account. Few minutes later another email saying claim rejected as a laptop is considered a `valuable' and not covered for accidental damage. Lodg
  12. Hi Steve - welcome to the forum. I have an Astron it also took a few days to charge. It would be worth posting again in the main discussion section using a less specific heading - maybe `how to keep a solar watch powered in winter' as quite a few members own a solar powered watch. This is mine. Just had a look in my handbook and from flat it would take 3.5 hours under fluorescent light in an office to charge enough for 1 day. To go from flat to fully charged would take 420 hours under fluorescent light; 115 hours of light on a cloudy day and 50 hours of sunlight.
  13. That will not be on my wish list - hurts my eyes looking at them.
