  1. MG vernier -- standard on all their movements (IIRC).
  2. Benu Index 41mm WG. MG Kaliber 100.1 manual wind. And, it is indeed a "nice thing"
  3. Mmmm . . . Moules, frites + Trappist beer. Welcome Sir.
  4. One brown. one blue -- otherwise identical.
  5. The private seller deal has arrived. Watch has clearly been worn a fair bit, but the body is in good nick even if the strap could do with a litt;e TLC. On visual inspection, it appears just as described. It is a Nomos Zürich Blaugold -- my favourite Nomos. In fact, a Nomos for grown-ups. And yes, I do already own a Zürich Braungold -- which is why I was confident to buy unseen without fear of disappointment in the watch.
  6. Very definitely Scott. The original quoted delivery time was 4-6 weeks, which I refused. They countered with an offer of the same watch with a deployant buckle in ten days -- but not, of course, at quite the same price. Again, refused. Then they came back with the original watch in 3-4 weeks -- and I thought I would try the experiment. It is obvious that this dealer operates with a network of "cooperative" ADs around Europe. He could not possibly carry the stock behind all his offers. I will name him, with my recommendation or otherwise, once the deal comes to fruition.
  7. This post has received 56 "likes" and two positive comments to date on UhrForum.de. Obviously they are just as obsessed with divers over there!
  8. Nowadays you'd need to purloin the card and the mobile phone -- and know the code to access the banking app -- but I understand that caution is sensible. Just been notified that the first (the private seller's piece) is on its way. The other -- the grey dealer -- will take a month. Agog
  9. Oh dear. All of the above.
  10. OK oh Chrono24 sages -- what does "Your money has arrived at our payment service provider. We're currently awaiting approval of your payment". mean? I used a card, rather than electronic bank transfer -- so, I assume they are not waiting for the funds to clear. So, who is approving what? Thanks
  11. I don't normally like the products of that company at all -- but just sometimes they come up with something harmonious and restrained. This is one such -- apart possibly from the rehaut Like this
  12. I'm flattered, Sir. But, I notice you gave the police a false name
  13. Germany does make divers -- so not mutually exclusive. If I bought anything to warm the cockles of @Davey P's heart my SWMBO would probably get me sectioned immediately -- with some justification. You know my taste -- be prepared to be stultified
  14. Thanks for the reassurance Scott. I didn't think I would try anything too expensive for my first go, and, as I dislike buying anything I haven't had on the wrist. Will show as soon as they arrive.
  15. But tried it today -- twice! Once with a grey market dealer, and once with a private individual. May be some time -- but I'll let you know how it goes.
  16. I also like my Rolex. It is most worthy. Luckily, I am pretty unconcerned about "resale value" (see my signature) -- you don't have to be if you don't ever really want to sell. (However, I always endeavour to buy well) So I am able to enjoy the products of other companies, many of which I rate as much more than simply "worthy".
  17. I like green at the moment. One of these brands "speaks to me" -- and it's the one which is available. The more I see of the other brand, the more I fail to understand why people bother.
