  1. Lots been delivered so it seems (not money!) ... looks delightful and getting g rave reviews, glad I jumped on this one
  2. I'm not talking stupid money brands like £10, 20,50,100k, but brands that are just about in grail reach for the average / comfy guy, sub £5k (I max out around 2!). Brands such as Bell and ross, Graham, Vulcain, Baume & Mercer, Bremont (to an extent), Cyrus, Anonimo, BRM, Raymond Weil... Is there no love for these (mostly not my cup if tea apart from months blanc & bremont)?
  3. Variety is the spice of life eh! My "collection" is pretty much vintage style divers bar a few exceptions, not everyone's tastes! (I'll leave it here for critique)
  4. Not so much brands but certain styles of watch for me, example include... The big cluttered breitlings Rolex subs All G shocks (and all digi except the vintage LEDs) Skeleton watches Most chronos (especially cluttered dials) Anything with a cyclops Anything jewel encrusted Too much colour Gold watches
  5. They wouldnt budge below 10% so right now it's a no (probably worth it still considering the in house movement, what looks to be a decent finish and a rather lovely bracelet but I'll wait for used or further reducctions). For me, the brown is more interesting but would it be as future proof as the black?
  6. As mentioned olim only 42 and in apparent good health but I have a will and the watches are in it. My kids & brothers can divvy them up, I'd like to think that they would keep and wear one each but if they chose to sell some ir all then it's no buggy (as I'll be part if the nitrate cycle). Me and my daughter (10yo) had an ace day out and she talked me into my rado captain cooke and she loves it, she'll have that. Anyone getting buried in one? (If the undertaker doesnt thieve it!)
  7. As per the title really! Any plans? I'm only 42 and not that morbid, but you never know what's around the corner
  8. Awesome arent they, got the brown on leather. Managed to get mine down from £1800ish to just under 1500 which I was very pleased with. The black looks stunning on the beads of rice!
  9. Thanks... one of my faves and a keeper for life! Here's a couple more, this Stevo trap is just oerfetc for it!
  10. And for a wet walk in the rain this afternoon...
  11. This morning.... Photos dont come close to doing it justice, the dial colour and polishing to the case are sublime!
  12. Do you not think they're just gorgeous though? Classic designs are just classic designs
  13. Put it better than my attempt... and yes, rado are doing great things, I couldn't resist this! My pic Stock pic that does it a little more justice , still not as pretty as in the flesh though!
  14. That Stowa seatime is stunning... one popped up in tbe classifieds and I just couldn't justify it at the time, gutted!
  15. Currently haggling with Yema directly for a 20% discount... gotta wait till tomorrow for an answer (they're sticking on 10% and a watch roll...). If I can get it at 20% off I'll take the plunge. Only trouble is, I love both the black and the brown so I suppose I'm canvassing opinion, especially if anyones seem one in the flesh (the black looks classic but the brown seems to have some kind of iredesence?) https://eu.yema.com/collections/digidisc
  16. i too find most of the big players are very samey... especially if youre talking dive / sport watches. Some of the bigger players do mix things up a little though, i think the likes of Rado, Oris, Bremont & Sinn offer something a bit different.... i 've felt myself drawn to micros of late, therss lots and lots of micros doing great things but harder to come across and research. Brands I have / had / incoming... Unimatic Armida D Hodge Nardi Mitch Mason MHD Undone Ventus Brands I'm considering / admire... Gruppo Gamma Helson Zelos H20 Vintage VDB (£££££) Lorier Stratton Baltic
  17. i like everything they do, in particular the nexus but at 44mm it may be a touch too large for me... Nexus NG-02 from Gruppo Gamma Watches
  18. I thought that at first but the more you look at it, the more it looks right and adds a nice bit of subtle detail to what's otherwise quite a simple three hander.
  19. Love the look and style of this type of watch, especially in the sand colour. I've taken a punt on this, due to be with me in April (I have to wait as I have the sand version). It will be the smallest watch I own so I'm a little anxious. Paid under the rrp as I backed it easily as a kickstarter. https://mitchmason.com/products/chronicle-desert-sand
  20. Rather nice isnt it.... https://eu.yema.com/products/yema-digidisc-black-ydgd2020-am
