  1. The first Aqua Terra ended up being my ‘one’ and I am so glad it did….
  2. So it ticks all of my boxes.....its a little sporty, waterproof, can be dressy, is shiny, has a white dial and is bloody comfortable and at 41mm is right in my sweet spot.... Without further a do I present my ONE WATCH......hope the wait has been worth it!! It is lovely in every way and I really like the rubber strap as opposed to the bracelet.
  3. Hopefully today......if I get time to collect it!! waiting is soooooooo painful!!
  4. Still at the depot…….making me sad!
  5. I cannot wait until monday either! In response to the above : 1. I feel my wisdom is probably temporary but I am happy to be a one watch guy for a little while 2. I will still be on the forum as I love the variety and scope of the watches on here.....oh and I couldn't live without @JayDeep's insights and opinions!! (in a good way Jay!!)
  6. The 'One Watch' has been purchased...... It arrives on Monday and is not one of the three I originally posted!! Update on Monday!!
  7. So following on from my last post about a one watch collection, I am about to embark on the challenge!! I became disillusioned with having so many watches that I never wore....so I sold them all!!! I have been researching the perfect One Watch for me....not for anyone else but for me!! I have narrowed my search to the three below and would love your opinions on them...... I dont mind quartz (less servicing costs) and am not too bothered by price (they are all affordable for me) and I like them all for different reasons. The Omega SMP.....well its an Omega SMP!! The Tudor Black Bay 41 is a classic, hassle free, beautiful watch....which also a strap monster so could be changed to match any situation. The Grand Seiko is different, lovely to look at and (in my opinion) at a quality point way above most other manufacturers. Oh and its a GMT for travelling!!
  8. I have been browsing some of the watch blogs etc and an interesting topic comes up now and again....'A one watch collection' Now I know it would never be possible (or would it?), but if times change and we all limited to only one watch each which watch would you chose and why? I feel that the one watch i would chose would need to be waterproof (up to 50 meters lets say), kind of sporty but with the ability to look good dressed up too. Perhaps this....
  9. Gone......I wonder if one of us picked it up?
  10. This one gets a dust off and run out today/this week
  11. Needed a sturdy number to tackle the depths of IKEA this afternoon……
  12. 438 cars took place and I bought mine from the drive of car 146!! Not sure about the movement. Interesting to see how the competitor editions differ from the ‘sale’ versions though. I do like your strap and deployment clasp.
  13. Still with the newbie….pic from yesterday!!
  14. So it’s arrived……and yes it’s a Chopard Mille Miliga…..BUT it was one that was given to an entrant in the 2015 race so a competitor edition. I wanted a red face in my collection and I love the fact it has provenance of sorts!! Anyway, first impressions are favourable and I think it may get a lot of wrist time.
  15. Awaiting a new arrival today.... Possibly me last for a while as it was a little over my initial budget. A new brand to me.... Swiss but with roots in italy for this model range A historical lineage Red faced and little racey!! This one belonged to an entrant! All will be revealed later (hopefully) but guess sway if you wish!!
  16. PM me your details and it will wing its way to you!
  17. On reflection.....and at a decent time of the day..... You are all right!! Having re-visited the site today and fully read all the marketing fluff I have re-considered my position on Horage/Homage/Horace..... Thank you all for putting me back on the right path!! Now to begin looking for a rocket powered chariot for my daily commute on 3omph B roads......
  18. https://www.horage.info/shop?currency=GBP I stumbled across Horage watches today and an amazed by their Tourbillon offering…..an in house Swiss made tourbillon for under 6k!!! Their other watches look nice too!! All to often I find myself bored with the usual suspects and somewhat underwhelmed by the mass of microbrands out there….but this…..this might be different!!
  19. Yep a new sexual position for horologists….
  20. So hot on the tails of @Bricey I have become the latest member of the time bum’s winners list!! I received this rather interesting watch today….. It retails at $215!!! https://mavenwatches.com/collections/for-him/products/mus-01-natural Anyway, I really don’t like it!! I would be very happy to send this along to another member if they would like it FOC unless they wanted to make a donation to @Roy…..anyway, message me if you like it!!
  21. Still loving the Alpina….pre-owned and unworn at 60% of retail - it is becoming a great holiday watch!!
  22. Postman came and delivered today and finally ended my search for a desk diver!! Must say I am very impressed with the overall quality from a brand I had never considered before! And at 44mm larger than I usually wear but my word it is comfy!
  23. I have had mine for a few weeks now and I would say go for it….at £299 it is a fine watch and one that I will enjoy for a long time. Agree about the straps…:the silicone is much more comfortable. It is quite tall but for me not a problem as I never wear shirt sleeves!! A full on polo guy at work!
