  1. Trying to work out where this is... Going through a couple of places I thought and discounting them...
  2. Doesn't have to be expensive to make you happy
  3. If I had the money in my pocket this second and knew where it was you wouldn't have the opportunity. 34mm blue face air king screams (quietly) everything that a watch should be. Understated and perfect for any occasion
  4. Totally agree. If it was a 36mm I'd be happier! But I guess they'd sell fewer watches
  5. Clap clap! Great aren't they?
  6. Thanks! I keep thinking about buying parts, but not brave enough to commit yet!
  7. Any details? Quite a fan but have a feeling its a 40mm+ case
  8. Is 'hipster' still fashionable? If so all my watches are now ironic. I'm with @Always"watching". Q1. Do I like it? Q2. Do I care what anyone else thinks?
  9. Raketa antimagnetic 2610 by Alex Bennett, on Flickr This has been sat whilst I've moved it ran way way too fast but after a couple of days of winding and checking it's within acceptable limits for me. Bought ad working a while back but with the crystal and minute hand missing, hence the condition of the dial! Fitted some hands from a dead donor watch after stripping the gold coloured plate with some brasso and then enamel paonting the reverse with some Humbrol black.
  10. Accuracy to the second isn't important to me at work. A date is nice but not necessary. It fitting under a cuff isn't usually too much of a problem either as sleeves usually end up rolled despite being in an office. My topic area is fairly niche and complex, even within the industry so I can get away with something quirky, interesting or just down right puzzling pieces and people seem to be interested or curious
  11. If you are in certain states/outlets they will do tax back if you spend $xxx. We've profited from that in journeys in the past. Its not huge but may tip the scales to making something worth while nas end enjoyable for the rest of your holiday
  12. They just aren't for me - can't put my finger on it. The trident is a nice touch though for interest, but again I'm not its biggest fan.
  13. Think I've seen online that there are fakes being sold on Wish. I'd steer clear of anything that advertises in the way they do, just plain annoying!
  14. Old pic, but Seiko love from me too today
  15. Short of a sluggish starting Vostok I've not had issues with any old Russians either. Nothing a quick shake can't fix
  16. Great job. Always amazing what a bit of effort can do. Micromesh is my current favourite weapon
  17. Hmm, I prefer my relatively 'rare' Seiko. It was an awful lot cheaper than that guide price too. but I do find amusement in the Scottsass name
  18. Too big in a 40mm for me too. Pity as I like the styling
  19. Good on the nato. I'd stick the bracelet straight in the bin else you are going to have a bald patch! A good value proposition that you know will be tough as old boots
  20. I'm glad people are latching on to Starking.
  21. I've had a few good purchases from there. All hare been excellent quality. The Starking, some guitar machine heads and an air conditioning and combined heater matrix for the project car. You have to put the effort into finding things though
  22. Looks good. I've thought about it a few times but being waist deep in doing the bathroom, then the ensuite and the kitchen has slowed progress on any fun whatsoever!
  23. Nice idea. Just a quick re-dial, new minute and hour hands and a new bezel and it'll match my Amphibian
  24. Something obnoxious today. The tick is LOUD. Probably annoying colleagues by Now... Prefect by Alex Bennett, on Flickr
