  1. I've found them easier to change than other quartz batteries, their large size reduces the chance of a fumble.
  2. Servicing over the 50 years could cost you 2 to 3 times the original cost of the watch but I get your point.
  3. Sporting my grandson's inaugural timepiece in his collection. Already has his eyes on a G-Shock. No hangovers for me, started antibiotics 3 days ago...
  4. Off to see the grandkids shortly. Happy Christmas everyone!!
  5. What a cracking thread! This is one of the things I was hoping to see when I joined the forum. Many thanks @Sir Alan for taking the time to post.
  6. Yeah you win hands down Ian! Thanks again for the info.
  7. Off to the shops wearing my latest acquisition. HAGWE everyone and have a happy Christmas!! That's a 'balls out' strap Rafy , Brilliant!!
  8. Not really a Stones fan but enjoying this..
  9. Was also going to suggest a G-shock although I doubt you'd be able to change a headlight bulb with it on!
  10. I'm only allowed in the kitchen when I have to fetch my own beer, so no mucky cooking hands for me. Will be playing with the grandkids for most of the time so something robust like SKX009.
  11. You could always hire one mate. (no affiliations) http://borrowedtimewatches.com/
  12. Thanks Pete. Apart from being on the lookout for an all black watch, I was initially drawn to the leather strap being shaped to the case. Not until I saw a few YouTube videos that I noticed the carbon weave on the dial, nice touch. It's very comfy on the wrist too.
  13. New arrival gets the rest of the day!
  14. Ordered this for no other reason that I don't own an all black watch, so was on the lookout. Orient Nami FAC09001B0, auto movement: F6724 Once again I've failed to capture how good it looks with my phone camera. The bezel has a glass like finish to it, very pleased.
  15. Hardly, I'm expecting something in return.
  16. It could indeed... My dearest will enjoy unwrapping this on xmas morning, well she'd better, she chose it. I had the hard part of hitting the 'buy' button.
  17. Come on then, give it to me straight. I can take it.
  18. A public forum is no place for the very thin skinned, just my medium skinned opinion of course.
  19. Great cover story, now tell us who's the target.?
