  1. A friendly DPD delivery man has just been to see me and this is what he left I was a little nervous about ordering as I haven’t had a Chris w before and this model seemed to generate lots of interesting comments.....however..... It is gorgeous.....it feels heavy and well made, the 40mm is a perfect size, the dial is beautiful - all in all I am super pleased. It compares very well in quality to my 36mm OP. In short I am very happy that I took the plunge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So the auction has ended and I sold the delightful watch for £137 so after PayPal fees (only £1 eBay fees) I reckon I may have just broken even.....phew!!! Lesson learned......or is it[emoji23] the door bell is going to ring again tomorrow..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I know - May have been a lucky purchase!!! Ha I worked in Atherstone for years - it is indeed a small world! For those who are interested...... I may still escape without my pants down! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. PO 45mm today for doing absolutely nothing!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. To be fair it is already on £1.98 on the bay after only 15 minutes on there!!! Guess some people have no taste!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Damn my plan to ‘loose’ the Xeric backfired.....thanks though [emoji106] The dial is interesting and the GMT function is kind of unique but at retail of $500 [emoji15][emoji15][emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. So my ‘bored in lockdown’ purchase of a Mystery quartz watch from Xeric arrived from the US today Let’s see what’s inside....after disinfecting of course Fairly nice box...promising maybe?? Xeric do some hideous watches so maybe not!! Nice internal watch box....getting excited now!! Not so excited anymore.......silly size 46mm and daft printing on the crystal. So for those who interested it cost $124 plus customs charges so approx £120. Probably going straight on the bay!!! Perhaps won’t experiment with mystery watches again.

  8. I was bored and you inspired me....I ordered one too!! We will have to compare when they arrive....[emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. You know you are right - my father in law has had jags, Mercs, range rovers and now he has a Lexus and will never change brand and says they are far superior - maybe I need to move on from Rolex et al and experience something new......hmmmm?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have seen a pre owned 2001 SBGT003 for a decent price (under 1k) with box etc - not quite vintage but nice all the same.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have been researching my next possible purchase and whilst I thought that I knew what I wanted I wasn’t prepared for Grand Seiko. I would like to gather opinions on them - I love the look of the snowflake but I am finding it hard to think of spending 2k plus on a Seiko! Is this just the Swiss Watch snob in me?

  12. Legend today..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I saw this too - can anyone give an opinion on quality etc as the perigraph does look lovely Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I am interested in adding a skeleton type watch to my collection once COVID buggers off!! I have seen a couple i like and wonder if anyone has any suggestions and any photos of their own!! Budget wise I guess up to 2k ish. Look forward to ideas!!
  15. On my window sill rather than my desk!!! Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos clock. A thing of beauty although it does need a service and small repair Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I am slowly falling in love with the look of the Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec chronograph https://www.xupes.com/watches/product-details/23761/montblanc/nicolas-rieussec-chronograph-stainless-steel-106488.html Has anyone got one and if so is it worth buying? Also, are montblanc watches in general worth looking at - they make some stunning pieces and I understand their in-house movements are very very good. My other slow burning appreciation is for https://www.xupes.com/watches/product-details/35055/jaeger-lecoultre/reverso-night-and-day-stainless-steel-278854.html Again thoughts and reviews are welcome. I own a Jaeger Atmos clock and absolutely love it but I am not sure if this piece is too small for me - I like 40mm plus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I would go for the AT - I have a 36mm blue face OP that I want to sell as I don’t wear it enough. Lovely watch but just too small for my tastes. It is in the classifieds if you are interested [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Ready for le jour ahead.....[emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Thanks guys - it is now listed!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I am considering selling my Rolex 116000 which really doesn’t get enough wrist time. Just wondered on people’s recommendations for the best place to sell it. Thanks in advance!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I am itching for a new purchase (don’t tell the wife) but I think I want to search new horizons....can anyone recommend a brand that is unusual or different. I have done the Rolex, omega, tag, iris, Longines etc etc so fancy a total change. I don’t mind what style of watch or whether it is Swiss made or auto/quartz. I would be happy to spend up to 1k. Looking forward to suggestions!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. happy new decade everyone!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I personally have an Apple Watch which I wear for work as it is much more practical. I then have an Omega Planet Ocean, Rolex Perpetual, Longines legend diver and an Oris which I can wear when I want a ‘proper’ watch!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Hi I wonder if anyone has put their Planet Ocean on a new strap and if they have what did they choose? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mom today - latest acquisition Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
