  1. SKX013. Back from its service, doing sterling work in the rain.
  2. For me (and in order): 2. Omega constellation 14ct 1966 auto 3. IWC platinum pilot manualwind 1960 6. JLC 18ct Memovox 1950's auto But I do like the old Rolex too.
  3. And mine too - I think it was the precise same model, and remember marvelling at the 24 hour clock markings without fully grasping the concept.
  4. I don't think these were replicas, copies of or homages to anything specific. And whilst at one level a generic retro three hander, I do think they had something a little unusual about them in a nice way.
  5. No, no, no. This would look much better with smart or casual wear, you could flip it over if fearful of damaging it, and take it off if you go swimming.
  6. Back this morning from the nice people at the Seiko Service Centre,who relieved me of £110 for the pleasure.
  7. I think getting something classic that you can wear when you are as old as the rest of us is a great idea. But it would be JayDeep's alternative for me. Unusual, legible, stylish and a more widely recognised brand. .
  8. Thank you. I wondered whether pedantry would be inappropriate, but am pleased that I am not alone. Oh, and Baltic.
  9. Decent enough of them to allow you the discount retrospectively.
  10. Dreyfuss 1953, £385 with 5% further discount at Dipples
  11. Would be too big for me. Before you shell out several thousand on a real one, I would buy a crappy homage and wear it for a couple of weeks. Then if you find it far too big to get in your cuff, or keep bashing it into furniture, you can reconsider with minimal loss. And you will have a crappy homage for gardening etc.
  12. Better for the changed strap. Now if you could also swap the bezel, face and hands, it could become quite lovely.
  13. Quite possibly, it is far from my comfort zone. It would just be a shame if a kindly gesture backfired. Sounds like the plan has been shelved, which is sad but I think sensible.
