  1. Personally I think it’s a fine looking watch and £210 for a Miyota 9015 is good value. Can’t say I’m that keen on the name - but then again it does get your attention and obviously creates a talking point. I hope it gets funded - although personally this isn’t something I’m after at the moment.
  2. Must admit I was looking at the PRS-40 when they originally came out as an Auto - but then there was talk of a chronology version which looked really really great - so I decided to wait for that. However, that is about to come out but as a Quartz - and as I'm not really interested in getting another Quartz Chrono I'm beginning to get a lusting for the PRS-40 again. It seems such great value. The only thing that's making me hesitant is their Mono-Pusher that is supposed to be coming out at the end of the month - but I've got no idea how costly that one will be. I thinking that I may try for a PRS-40 this weekend - on the basis that there's no guarantee if they'd be made again considering how long they've been out; whereas even if I decide that the Monopusher plus the PRS-40 is a bit excessive for this month - there's bound to be another batch of the mono-pushers made. Anyway - now you've had it some time - what are your likes/dislikes?
  3. Yeah, I can second this, Previously had a Bund made by him for my Newmark 6BB - and just ordered an Ostrich Strap from him for my Tissot Newtimer.
  4. Remember the Navigator has the Top Grade movement in it.
  5. Enjoy the ones you have - it's always good to have a goal to aim for; if you sold them now you'd regret it - and would no-doubt have to find something else to collect. The hunt is part of the enjoyment - it it were easy it would be no fun.
  6. I love the looks (including the Yellow on the dial) but I'd prefer a mechanical movement rather than the Quartz.
  7. Time and Tide has a video up - and frankly I think they look great. However, I’m also unclear how forged carbon fibre holds up for a watch. As to the price, yeah they’re at a point where you’re not going to buy one on the off chance, but it you consider the Tag Carbon Aquaracer I don’t think they’re that bad. Doxa have always been a left field choice - and to me that makes them all the more appealing. http:// Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. Nice, congratulations [emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Congratulations - it does look a stunning watch I wonder if the legibility would have been better if there was just a single numeral cut-out for the hour? But I guess, as on the Yema the hour doesn't 'jump' but just revolves, then you need the larger cut out to see the numbers when they're not centred. The brown dial does look very interesting and I think was the right way to go - certainly that was the one I'd decided on if I'd ordered it.
  12. Must admit I missed that - will try and watch it on iPlayer - thanks for the 'heads-up'
  13. I must admit I quite like that
  14. That's really weird - because you're right in that if you go to the UK Store it then sends you to the American one - that gives you the price as $590. But if you go to the Europe Store (not the French) it then gives the price as €590...... However, my days of wondering whether to purchase this are over - as I just picked up this, which is supposed to be NOS, for €300.00 plus €20.00 postage and packing. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tissot-New-Timer-cal-2581/224116585300?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  15. Actually can I just check on that £384? Isn't it €590 - 10% = €531; so at an exchange rate of about £1.00 = €1.14 wouldn't it be about £465?
  16. That's great about the fee - say your photo and I think its looks wonderful. Out of interest - how do you find 'reading' it?
  17. Wow - I think that's one of the best photo's I've seen showing the brown. Looks great.
  18. Yeah, and courier handling fees - but even so it has their latest in-house movement in it; some NOS single jewel jump hours are going for about that on e-bay. For a new watch - with that movement - I think it’s a good buy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. Must admit I like them, and I think that it’s great they exist - but I’m not sure I’d buy one.
  20. Ever since you’vew started this thread I’ve got ever stronger ‘lustings’ to get myself a mechanical digital/jump hour watch. Can’t decide to go vintage or not but at £384 that dies seem a great value. Wish the dial was maroon rather than brown - but I’d be really interested to hear what you think of it when it comes.
  21. Congratulations on your purchase
  22. Try and get the seconds as near to bang on as possible (back-hacking a bit if required) - then adjust the minutes hand when the seconds get to the 12. Although non-hacking watches are 'frowned' upon nowadays - they do have a big advantage of when you need to adjust the hour - due to a timezone change - it doesn't muck up the timing run that you're doing - if you're a bit OCD like me and frequently checks the accuracy your watch
