  1. It's right the watch automatically switches on once you put the battery in it! Lool
  2. So the challenges begin! Matching the roof tiles that are now discontinued. I spoke to the manufacturer who suggested I replace the whole roof with the new version of the old tile which is 20% smaller in size! How convenient. Local merchant only has 200 tiles in stock I need double that, everwhere else said salvage yards or ebay is the only to find tiles. Even if I want to replace the entire roof with a new tile supplier's are struggling to meet the demands with 4 month lead times. Luckily after some more searching I managed to find some reclaimed tiles of a guy who just replaced his whole roof for new ones. Shade is slightly different but will have to do as not really got much choice.
  3. Builder is back of holiday so bit more progress. Hopefully will upto wall plate next week and start the roof.
  4. I'm hoping it's a watch! Otherwise I'm on the wrong forum.
  5. The early Tudors are very indeed and also seem to have a slightly thinner profile due eta movement.
  6. I will contribute £10 towards the set Roger recommended mate. So you at £60 now. Let's see if we can TWF crowd fund the rest.
  7. No indication at all just a generic response. I have even emailed Rolex on the same matter, how can so many unobtainable Rolex's be flooding the grey market, response was plausible denibility. Just stated their AD's are consistently monitored for best practices and that they wouldn't sell into thr grey market etc..
  8. No I was never asked to put a deposit down unfortunately. I definitely would have if asked just so I knew they would have taken my interest seriously.
  9. Some nice choices but you will be paying into the Brand names & they would be 2nd. Below you would get new watches for similar money and 'good as' quality.
  10. Would be nice indeed but you may have more chance of winning the lottery than getting a SS professional Rolex these days. Apparently I'm still on the 'waiting list' at my local AD for past 7 months now. I'm sure they just tell me that for entertainment purposes.... I requested an alternative to the Explorer 2, basically any SS sports watch and the response was: we will add you to the waiting list for all of them lol. Might buy a lotto ticket for Saturday's draw...
  11. Brought & Sold a few watches on here. Tbh I prefer this over Ebay as you generally only dealing with a small number of regular contributors. Although Roy does not ask for any money towards site/classifieds I'd rather give a contribution here than to Ebay as this is a exclusive forum for watch enthusiasts. Hopefully this is a minor blip and things will run as smooth as they been.
  12. I feel sad that this post even exists! Treat people how you want to be treated. Trust is a 2 way thing.
  13. Whole heartily agree Mr P. All my transactions have been spot on and trust is an important thing.
  14. Yes getting there! Although now looking at a single rear whilst we got the wheels in motion. Watch this space!
  15. Everyone on this forum should really have clear & honest intentions when you using the classifieds section of the forum. In most instances that is the case. I appreciate they be the odd occasion that something goes wrong but I would suggest the buyer if has any doubts to use PayPal but not friends+family. Request an invoice from the seller so should give buyer protection should anything go south.
  16. I would agree but as Tag was my 1st proper swiss automatic watch I still have a soft spot for them. I'm glad a picked a kind of never in/out of fashion model.
  17. I like the strap on the 1st watch looks alot like the C.Ward hybrid ones. Overall looks nice.
  18. Looks good whatever it is. That is my subjective view of course!
  19. Have you a badge for that Roy?
