  1. I thing it look massive to be honest! I too have girly wrists and a few larger watches but they seem to set well... This is my Oris Aquis DAte, worn yesterday with short sleeves, its 42mm and a bit of a lump (short lugs admitteldy), i also have a Tutor black bay heritag that is supposedly "slab sided" but doesn't wear big either (IMHO). I think you need to get the bracelet sized before you can form an opinion.
  2. It's not your problem Roy, kickstarter is a gamble... if it comes good I have a unique watch that "brands" would be asking four figures for. Win some, lose some... I've had great kickstarter watches!
  3. Have to say a big thank you to @scottswatches for this one... If anyine fancies something bit vintage/ special / out there, you won't be disappointed, a joy to deal with.
  4. It's not a loss just yet... And redundancy was the best thing that ever happen to me, good luck!!!!
  5. Yep... me too sadly. Emailed them a few days ago, not a sausage. Something is amiss
  6. Worryingly, no contact and no Facebook group posts
  7. Variety is teh spice of life! I'm yet to get my hands on it but have admired the diastar for some time, a new one is circa 800 quid but this is from my birth year (1978) and a fraction of the price, I couldn't turn it down!
  8. Got one Yema, it's a bit out there but was impressed with the overall service and the watch itself....
  9. Lots to like, good call! I nearly pushed the button on one myself but decided it's maybe a little busy for my tastes and I already have a good few divers so fancied something a bit different to what I already have. Just to play along, this is my latest order...
  10. Backed this on kick-starter some time ago and it's now finally on my wrist. Full review to follow but being honest, I'm impressed, expectations have been exceeded!
  11. Not yet, problem after problem at the moment but i'm confident it will be worth the wait.
  12. Great tastes, not to dissimilar to my own preferences (apart from that sh1tty Tag!)
  13. This seems to get more wrist time than almost anything else I own; cant quite put my finger on it... It's small, doenst feel (and isnt) expensive, it's on an aftermarket nato, it's my only hand winder; I just love it!
  14. Power reserve meter is a novelty complication IMHO... a nice one nevertheless. If tbe watch is worn, it makes no difference. If an auto isnt worn it will be wound and set regardless. Longest power reserve I won is 80 hrs (certina DPH200M), it does make a difference on convenience when it comes to rotation, once it gets worn, it keeps getting worn
  15. Worse than that... https://www.surfdome.com/Nixon-Time-Teller-Watch/sd5057745.htm?colour=Black&sku=431188&productid=126548&gclid=CjwKCAjwm7mEBhBsEiwA_of-TIM8Igx5GvwDPHIjLbf4BruNcz-MHtJgFXcobNhUX5k2nHPC3VQ-mRoC8s4QAvD_BwE I've now got £2.55 left for two watches wish here we come!
  16. £88.50 left for 3 watches... https://uk.mondaine.com/collections/sale/products/helvetica-light-38mm-minimalist-brown-leather-watch-mh1-l2110-lg
  17. Theres one... https://www.rado.com/en_gb/collections/diastar-original/original/R12408613 I'll easily get 10% off so I've got £208 to play with for the remaining 4 watches.
  18. Tried one on today, (18kt solid gold pushers on leather... WOW, just WOW. What a watch. Quality as your expect and the design / finish is stupidly good. When you push the pushers the almost click, well, they do click and the second hand just snaps back to zero in an instant. Lovely lovely thing https://www.tudorwatch.com/en/watches/black-bay-chrono/m79363n-0003
