  2. Wearing my new addition today. [emoji7] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. There may be a few bits from that sale in their way to me now. [emoji57] I just need to sort out what’s going out of the watch box when they arrive. [emoji3525] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’ve just had a mail with some 15-20% reductions. I many have accidentally orders one. [emoji2957] Here’s the link - https://www.stowa.de/en/special+offer+watches/?utm_source=CleverReach&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Newsletter_Aktionsuhren_20190620_EN&utm_content=Mailing_13401885 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. That first one is stunning. One of these is also on my list and that’s a really good price. Here’s a review if that’s any help, from someone who knows what he’s talking about - Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That dial is growing on me from day to day. It’s been a week since I’ve bought a turtle, so I may have to start looking! [emoji2960] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I couldn’t decide between the two, and seeing that they were selling quickly, I thought I’d get both and then make a decision between them when I could look at them properly. Unfortunately I like them both now. So they’re staying. The wife raided my watch box this morning and heads claimed my blue lagoon to be her daily wearer! I can’t complain realty as she hasn’t complained about me buying these. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Picked these up from the post office this morning. Should have had them on Saturday, but the wife decided to go out when the postman was due! The one on the left is the dawn grey Turtle and the one in the right is the dawn grey Samurai. They look much better than they do in the pictures, and will be going straight in the watch box when the stickers are taken off and I size them.
  9. And there’s 2 more spaces in the watch box filled. [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Going via Abu Dhabi. Unfortunately I only have a 3 hour wait between flights, so won’t have much time to look in th airport. Will have to look at the Singapore or Hong Kong option next time.
  11. I’m visiting there soon for my brothers 50th birthday, and it would be a shame to go all that way and go and look at what’s on offer. I’d probably be looking at pre-owned, but could also be tempted with something new if the price is right. Does anyone have any recommendations?
  12. The sales guy said they were omegas we’re lovely watches but I’d never wear them. He’s probably right. I tried a few of the Nomos watches on, starting with a club, then a tangente, both in various sizes I think. They just didn’t sit right on my wrist, which was probably to do with the absurdly large lugs that stick out from the case. The metro was the only one that came anywhere close to fitting me. However, for the near £3k that they wanted for it, I wasn’t impressed. Ooooo......now that’s nice. I’ve been watching X33’s for a while, but they all seem to go for far too much money for me.
  13. It’s stupidly high, but as soon as it’s was on my wrist it didn’t seen too tall. I have flat wrists, so maybe that helped. Saying that I’d be surprised if it wasn’t over 20mm tall. It it made my Speedy Mark II Look positively dainty.
  14. I think it’s more the angles that I was taking them and the distance I had the phone from the watch. They all all looked like they fitted nicely when I was in there.
  15. It was very high on the wrist, but once it was on I didn’t notice it. It wore much smaller than I thought. Couldn’t believe how light it was. Then again, the proplov had just been on my wrist and that thing is a brute! I was surprised myself. It’s in the top two along with the other Cartier.
