  1. I understand the concept of a ‘grail watch’ (hate that term), but just don’t think I am the kind of person to ever be content. In saying that one of me dream watches (just now) is an A Lange & Sohne Tourbillon. Don’t think you get much better
  2. Haha yup exact same experience mate!! Took a crow bar to prize my jaw from the floor
  3. I usually buy, with the intention of selling something else in the collection, then buy again, with the intention of selling something else in the collection.....and the vicious cycle continues! i would say only sell to upgrade, if your not then that’s when you could potentially get buyers remorse
  4. Like i said, that’s from my experience. And value does not necessarily equate to high horology
  5. From my personal experience I have couple of Pateks and a rose gold JLC I would class a league above a steel Rolex. A Daytona is nice buy certainly not high horology
  6. Plain and simply that’s a cool watch. A lot bang for your buck
  7. My wife and I have a deal....every time I buy a watch she gets to buy a handbag. It’s certainly slower down my watch buying! Some of those handbags are well into 4 figures, ridiculous.
  8. Oh yes! Buy that omega Deville!! Pure class
  9. Thanks guys. Wouldnt exactly class a Daytona as the big league but a very nice watch all the same.
  10. That NATO is perfect for that watch! Lovely choice
  11. After searching for months, I finally found a Daytona in mint condition (with full set) at a really good price. Arrived yesterday but just tried it on.... https://www.dropbox.com/s/e100elqk97h7r5r/Photo 29-10-2018%2C 09 48 42.jpg?dl=0 ...oh excuse my terrible photography. Really need to improve
  12. Yup I agree with the big man. The prize is simply not good enough for the ticket price. For me personally anyway. Pat on the back though for to raise money for a good cause
  13. Haha just admit it Jonny you were caught out trying to be smart and failed miserably. Good attempt to try and change the subject though after being proven to be wrong again. I do find your mad rants amusing
  14. Oh somebody is touchy about Breitling haha. Ehhh have you tried looking on the internet?? Even you should find one there. Tag F1 chrono for example. Made a fool of yourself there mate
  15. I agree. That watch is on the same level as a £1k Tag or even £500 Certina. Breitling are so overpriced considering the movement and level of finishing, both very average. Great logo though!!
  16. CYup series 2 4.2. Next stage is to convert to RHD. Fit red interior. Triple SU carbs. Stainless steel bumpers, wheels and exhaust system. I have a matching S1 fhc 4.2, but in LHD
  17. Yes that’s the car! Mine had dark blue interior. Sold it last December, I miss the car but the offer was too good to turn down. Plus it financed a Jaguar XK120 roadster, and a few watches, so no regrets. Heres my Etype just back from painters.... https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gdudi7fwecoxbqe/AAArE0QKh_wAOXgX7pqR8zSha?dl=0
  18. Yes I am a classic car addict. I’ll post pics shortly of some of my cars. My favourite car I have owned, was my wedding car from last year, a 1970 Mercedes 280SE Cabriolet
  19. I have genuine Rolex boxes and one possibly not genuine Rolex box. Yours look more like my possibly not genuine box. The inside looks a cheaper material than genuine. Just an educated guess. Like somebody mentioned above, don’t think having a genuine box is really that important. Unless it’s a very rare rolex
  20. Jesus H Christ. Don’t know what’s more impressive...the list or your ability to remember the list!!! My list is too long to type, plus I wouldn’t remember most of it. My Jaguar Etype roadster arrived back from the paint shop this morning though! After 3 long years....
  21. Problem is, despite everything we just said, I would probably buy/own them all. What the f is wrong with me!
  22. Must be the only boutique to get rid of 50 Datejusts this year!! in all seriousness though glad those scumbags are behind bars. With a history of criminality it’s the best place for them
  23. Hmm think I’d say old bangers....and probably money pits too!
  24. What did you use to ‘brush’ it? And how good was the outcome? I am thinking about doing the same to my Daytona
