  1. I'm not on there, plus it's low on my priority list. I just think it's a refreshingly fun design
  2. Best of luck, great to get stuck in and the weather looks fair too which always helps!
  3. Their offering on Certina make them very reasonably priced - DS1 for under £300
  4. 40mm without a bezel often ends up looking like a plate on my wrist. Its very handsome, the blue is fantastic. I'm really taken with the rainbow model
  5. Really like that and a fair number of the watches they make. I just wish they made them in smaller sizes
  6. Herein lies the danger of just buying bits, trusting the seller and hoping it all goes together unfortunately!
  7. What is the issue? You have the bits, they should fit together if they are all for the same movement, go in the case and be away.
  8. Is this a similar reason why Trevor became TVR? @WRENCH speed racing with hand love? Best get something cooling on that. Upside, if it's an auto, at least it'll get plenty of winding...
  9. Couldn't agree more, very good saddles, I've had a couple on bikes in the past. I've currently a Giant TCX SLR2. Great do everything bike, a little aggressive on the handling for what I generally do but its light, compact and can hold its own on fairly rough trails whilst being a breeze to press on on tarmac.
  10. I understand the toughness and requirement, even the aesthetic of some, but they just aren't for me.
  11. I guess with some types of older automatic this may be the case, a bumper maybe which isn't as efficient as winding. Thinking about how easily the rotor swings, just look at the exhibition case back on a Seiko 5 for example, making a cup of tea, walking to the toilet, even changing the channel with a remote. Even more so with the proliferation of smartphone use will wind if the worn wrist is moved. Perhaps not enough to fully tension the mainspring but certainly enough to get it going. With a lot of modern autos having 40-50+ hours reserve and efficient mechanisms, small movements
  12. I can't see how this happens. even on the most sedentary day there is still movement to shake a rotor. A service is perhaps required rather than an issue with the watch
  13. My latest discovery is Soudall Crystalfix. Incredible. The blokes fixing the flashing on my garage roof used it and I had previously used. It for my kitchen backsplash and fixing vanity panels to the ends of the cabinets
