  1. Nothing to do with current Tissot.
  2. And they are funny about antibiotics these days. Forewarned is forearmed AVO. Are you up on verucas ?
  3. Sartorially my tastes run to boots and socks, or just socks. The idea of anything remotely resembling sandles and socks, or even no socks, or even sandles brings to mind beards and unsuitable shorts
  4. I confess.....no search at all. I will wear a hair shirt for a week.
  5. Don’t know about wear , good on a shelf .
  6. Somebody would have liked those.
  7. I paid , I get to call mine what I like.........fair? Plus there twenty years worth knocking about.....that’s collecting The living area on home is clutter free, I have a wife.
  8. I’ll take your word for it AVO I’m either wearing boots or just socks, mainly the latter.
  9. Often seen Skagen mentioned but never seen a Skagen thread.....so I’ll fix that omission I have couple but only a pic of this Chrono........ Not worn a lot , but I like the look , soft leather strap, and lightness. Any other Skagen out there ? Going to play ? Cheers
  10. Like the thread says, have you ever binned a watch, through practicality, temper , or desperation. I only ever lost it with one, a mechanical Timex I picked up, off Amazon new. I bought it because it had ( gasp) a power meter. The first one they sent gained time as it was shaken to power up, a lot of time. I returned it for another. The replacement was even worse than the original, about as good as a candle clock In a fit of pique I punted it across the room and ummmmmm “ damaged” it. Too badly for money back.....so the bin. Never since, with anything Binned anything? Circumstances? Cheers
  11. Noon...time to get up, I’ll pick after a shower. Not worth going out roads are clogged with fleeing Grockles.....
  12. In the last two weeks I’ve bought one for 320 and one for a fiver. The Sekonda was a fiver all steel, pretty and I like. If I get absolute “ junk” it goes, and that has happened with a few three quid watches. I still managed to find somebody who liked them. Cheap doesn’t mean junk.......a commonly held views by some. I like them THAT is the point.
  13. Īhmmmmm.....I call it COLLECTING
  14. Good finds , especially for the wife
  15. It’s confess I missed that bit. Must concentrate
  16. Conspiracy theorists are usually unbalanced. The thread is about what it says, just off to theorise about the Kennedy assassination. Nobody collects anything from stamps to coins without their collecting habits, and collection changing with taste, knowledge, and pocket. That’s what the thread is about. If you think it is about 21st century distribution of wealth or horology and the socialist state I can’t help that Eclectic.....varied, wide ranging. I d say my fiver to hundreds qualifies.
  17. I’ve had some “ idiosyncratic “ Parnis, but they all keep on working
  18. Shop around.....I’ve been looking at a watch that retails from 350 to 791. I’d be ticked if I paid 791.
  19. I've yet to have a sub 50 quit on me apart from the three quid Amazon specials sent from China, bought out of curiosity only. Fifly quid will buy you a reliable and lasting Sekonda, Timex, Vostok or Casio
  20. Nice review and explanation of choice I do like the watch and the GMT although I do think it has limited functionality but it looks great and is a boon when resetting. I wish you long hot relaxing days far far away looking at your CW
  21. I am not to thank for your Sybaritc watch choices I do however claim copyright on the term “ horological sybarite “ , no royalties due
  22. On the autos now Cassie.....it’s a slippery slope Run out of flies again Reggie? Thanks for the typically jolly contribution.
  23. In the progression of the WIS habit it generally seems that buying better and better watches is par for the course. In my case my buying is still eclectic and can cover a few pounds to a few hundred. I can still find a Sekonda that delights me. So high enders, horological sybarites, I make no judgement and I love seeing your watches but would any of you ever conceivably buy a Timex, a Sekonda, an Invicta I am wondering if once you have had “ the best” is there still room for more humble watches. Going to play ? Cheers Thread number TWO for the day for the moderator to whome it matters
