  1. Hi everyone, Just a quick update, I've had the watch on now for almost 24 hours solid and it's kept time perfectly. I have tried winding it a couple of times today and there seems to be no problem now . . . . strange Is it possible that it just became a little stiff from having not be worn for a week or so and sat still in a watch box? I will certainly keep a close eye on it and still seriously consider getting it looked at in the new year.
  2. I think the new ones are but I bought mine at the end of December 2017 when they were still doing a 2 year warranty, unless they've extended it for those holding 2 years
  3. Yeh it appears to be keeping time well, I've only had it on my wrist for a few hours but nothing noticeably wrong as of yet. Thanks for the replies everyone, I suspected it might be in need of a servicing. Slightly disappointed in all honesty, I was hoping I would be able to go longer than 3 years before requiring one, especially given the price point of the watch. Oh well guess my hopes were too high
  4. Hi everyone, I'm after a little advice, it's coming up to the 3 year mark of owning my colt automatic and I've encountered a problem. I've had it off my wrist for a few days as part of my usual rotation of watches and this time round when I came to wind it up it doesn't feel right. When I turn the crown it feels like the rotor is spinning inside and it becomes difficult to fully wind the crown back in. It's currently on my wrist now and appears to be keeping time just fine but slightly concerned. Any ideas what the problem could be? Also if I should get it looked at does anyone know
  5. Thanks ill have a look into Taptalk for future reference. As far as the lume goes, in the short space of time I have owned it I cant say i'm disappointed. I think the main reason being that from the Youtube reviews and written reviews I knew what I was getting myself into buying the watch. I admit that its far from the best lume I have seen but lume is not a deal breaker for me. The bezel is aesthetically very pleasing to look at and is a little more effort to turn than some people may hope. In my opinion I like the rigidness of it, I like to think of it as "over engineered." all bei
  6. I've tried to upload some photos, I used to use photobucket but that appears to charge now so have had a go utilising Flickr. Looks like its just a link tho
  7. Well the bracelet is resized, I've got a slotted watch block which helped and after struggling with the first screw I opted for the hair dryer. Worked a treat and now the bracelet fits perfectly. Thank you for the tip! https://www.flickr.com/photos/189345369@N06/shares/A71Cb7
  8. Hi guys, So to my surprise the watch had arrived! Much faster than anticipated but I'm not complaining. The watch at first inspection is great, I love the Jenny fish on the crown and the dial is really nice. The BoR bracelet is great - however, it is a little large and now my challenge is to resize it. In my unprofessional opinion I need to remove 3 links . The links appear to have screws, can anyone offer any advice/guidance on how to resize? Thanks in advance
  9. From the many reviews that I've read and YouTube reviews I have seen the lume does appear to be a little lack lustre. Fortunately in my case I'm not going to be doing any real diving and as a general rule I don't tend to wear watches to bed so I can forgive the poor lume. The main positives for me (my mind may change when I receive the watch) are the brand heritage, the unique bracelet and fingers crossed the quality. I wanted something that is a little different and not quite so common and I think the sub 200 fits the bill. I'm hoping that this doesn't unleash a fascination with Do
  10. Thanks for all the replies, I’ve bitten the bullet and ordered the Caribbean dial version. As much as I like the other versions I think they are possibly a little too vibrant for me. Now I have to play the waiting game until it arrives!
  11. Hi everyone, what is your opinion on the Doxa sub 200? I’m due a small bonus and a promotion in the next month and have decided to treat myself to a watch. I’m willing to stretch the budget to around the £1000 mark hence my consideration of the Doxa. I’ve known about the promotion and bonus for a little while now so have spent some time thinking of my options. I already have a Breitling colt which I’ve had for a couple of years now and consider that my best watch. I want something which is automatic, slightly smaller than my colt which is 44mm and something which has good WR so I c
  12. You’ll have to excuse the pun
  13. Thanks for all the replies guys, I’d like to say that I have made a final decision on which one . . . . But I still have several weeks until I get my house keys and therefore a bit more time to make my mind up about what I will treat myself to. I feel I’m swaying more towards the Oris just because of the brand heritage but only time will tell.
  14. Hello forum members, I’m after some opinions. I like both the Christopher Ward C65 trident automatic on SS bracelet and the Oris 65 on SS bracelet with the hint of bronze on the bezel. The C65 is 41mm in diameter and the Oris 65 is 40mm, both have Selitta movements and both have more than enough water resistance for what I need. In my opinion I don’t think the watches are hugely different aesthetically although some might disagree. I don’t own anything from either brand so can’t comment about them from a personal perspective, the only thing I will say is the Oris is pretty much doubl
  15. An old picture but nevertheless, wearing this today.
