  1. Afternoon gents. This has been on the wrist for a good few days now. I've decided to look for another strap, still linked to motoring / rallying, but with smaller and more holes.
  2. I used to go to the Hammersmith Palais - and sometimes worked at the almost next door old dole office. I remember going to see The Bangles there, supported by some boy pop band called 'Sailor'.
  3. I'd take two. The Bremonts Terra Nova and Endurance. Both have been there and done it with polar explorer Ben Saunders and he had an input into their design. There you go. You can close this thread now!
  4. Welcome back, although for me, you never went away - lol! The MS is great. Very distinctive and distinguished. I have always been a fan of MS and you made the right choice IMHO. So much peer pressure with a Rollie.
  5. That's great! I really like cacti and have some that have succeeded and some that just died on me. I bought a couple more the other day when I was in Bkk. But when they flower, it is special. This little feller, which is really prickly, is about an inch and a half tall and all of a sudden, this time last year, almost to the day, it suddenly flowered and the flower lasted for ages. I must check if there is any sign of the same happening now?

    Chinese v Swiss

    Nothing wrong with noodles! But I agree with your sentiment. My neighbours wife is Chinese. She's working there now. She is no longer a Chinese citizen but has academic skills they need. She has worked in universities all over the World. She has no intention of ever living in China, as none of her family do. Someone else I know lived and worked for so long in China on big engineering projects, that he met and married his wife there, who is now a Brit. He has no illusions about the Chinese state, follows events there closely and views it as the evil empire. I think we can all agree on that.
  7. I think it's very nice, I really like it. I would like it even more if they had resurrected the original 'round' hour hand, rather than sticking with the snowflake. And it's too small at 39mm.
  8. Yes, they are Anglo-Swiss. Hence the two flags motif. A brand I don't get is Nomos. And no, I can't explain it. There are a few newer very high end brands whose designs generally leave me cold as well.
  9. When you find another you like, just ask on here. There's a better than even chance that someone has had / has one. If you're considering that price point, have a look at Magrette from New Zealand. You can buy from a partner company in the UK, thus avoiding extra tax.
  10. I would have never known that was her brand. I remember when she was with Malcolm Mclaren and all the faux punk stuff. She has stores in the higher end Malls in Bkk - you'd be pleased about that!
  11. When I saw those Benzinger watches, I thought of Breguet and Chronoswiss. The latter make mechanical regulators and fortunately, they have an outlet in Bangkok. I have always liked their pics, but in the flesh, they were something else. Their classic, pilots and Heritage range might be worth a look. This one, at 37 or 41mm, sells for 4,800 Euro's. One of my favourites comes in at over 17k! https://chronoswiss.com/en/EU/product/regulatohttps://chronoswiss.com/en/EU/product/regulator-classic-ch-8773-blr-classic-ch-8773-bl
  12. Are you wearing those as a joke? That's an actual brand and not something you have made up??? I have obviously been out of the UK for too long, as I have no idea what they are!! With skechers, I recall when they were a bit of a trendy brand just selling normal footwear, rather than the bouncy stuff they sell now (which is great for my sports injury decimated right knee). When did that change happen?
  13. As an aside I was a ball boy at Wimbledon in 1970, 71 and 73. The year he won, in 72, I wasn't allowed to be a ball boy because of mock exams!
  14. I had a pair of those when Smith was still playing tennis (and wore them when I did)! Pam's niece has a pair, she's 23. She was here last week. Of course, she has no idea who Stan Smith was. She was incredulous when I told her that I used to wear them.
  15. That's exactly the same as me. Always Adidas, now only skecher
