  1. Started reading Lee Child's Jack Reacher novel 61 hours. It was something I picked up because I was bored and found I can't put it down.
  2. Ooh not tried the toffee yum Yums. I like the cheese twists, pizza slices and the ciabatta bread.
  3. Got one from Lidl in Southport as of 4pm there were four left if anyone in the area is interested.
  4. Thanks Sulie hi ho hi ho it's off to Lidl I go
  5. Thanks guys. I can't wait for the Lidl one I need to clean some model railway parts so I can get the model railway running after Boxing Day. eBay/Amazon it is then.
  6. My ultrasound cleaner died this morning and I need a new one. Ebay and Amazon come up with lots but I cant afford one of the nice proffesional ones, can anyone reccomend something good 1 litre or thereabouts max budget £50.
  7. I have had a set of AF screwdrivers for a about five years and they have been fine apart from when one of the blades dropped out and disappeared under the garage workbench. As said above they take a Bergeron replacement blade.
  8. Might help if you narrow it down to which model you mean is it a touch screen and what the crystal is made of. If its Acrylic then Polywatch or toothpaste will shift shallow scratches but wont do anything about a deep scratch as by the time you have removed enough material to take out the scratch you have weakened the crystal. If its mineral glass you can polish out scratches but its not easy. If its a Saphire crystal replacement is the only option.
  9. Seiko do quite a few watches with a power reserve indicator in the Prospex and Presage range and Orient do some in the Star range. The only thing is watches with PRIs tend to be either cheap and cheerful or eyewateringly expensive they arent usually found on a £1000 watch in my experience. The only PRI equipped watch I have seen recently in your price range was a Rado Coupole Classic at around £1300 in Ernest Jones.
  10. Well its now been 8 days since I picked up the Dynamic from The Old Watch Shop and I have been checking it against a radio controlled clock, the BBC time signal and my laptops internet clock. I make it 0.5 of a second slow after 8 days, not too shabby I think
  11. The landlord is a company based in Gibraltar and for all I know owns millions of properties they probably dont care wether its empty or not.
  12. It will probably turn into another flaming charity shop. As if the 13 we already have is not enough.
  13. I would hate to be running a shop selling anything these days. A local jewellers has just put the closing down sign's up, the landlord more than doubled the rent
  14. In January this year I bought an Omega Dynamic from The Old Watch Shop in Southport. It instantly became my favourite watch and was worn every day till mid May when I noticed it was stopping overnight. I took the watch back to The Old Watch shop with horrible visions of getting a big repair bill, straight away the proprietor diagnosed a broken Main Spring. There was no discussion about warranties or as I have had at other watch shops the accusatory questions on how I wore it or stored it or have you dropped it just "I will sort it for you there will be no charge" he even apologised that it might take up to three weeks for the return, I was stunned expecting to not see my watch again before Autumn. Three weeks later I had my baby back fully serviced with a new main spring and wow if I thought it was accurate before it now runs like a dream I cant actually tell if it has gained or lost any time, if it is its a second either way at most. I have no connection to the shop or the owner but after some absolutely rotten service from watch shops over the years it was such a pleasure to deal with a true watch enthusiast and gentleman that I had to write this post. Of course if this post results in a sale I will happily take my commision in Swiss Francs
  15. This is why I wont sell anything I cant afford to lose on fleabay. Too many people know how to game the system and ebay dont care as long as they get their $$$$$$ If I have to sell on some of the good stuff I might use an auction house.
