  1. Tried to get one today, no luck. May take a few days until they are literally unavoidable
  2. I wouldn't take any notice of trands and averages. They make out the average person makes a good salary and lives happily ever after. The last 2 businesses I worked for completely ignore all UK employment laws and get away with it. One of them had 40+ workers and handed me cash in an envelope working out at £6.50 an hour. I am over 25 so that is illegal to start with. Do you think the Gov helped me ? Hell no Sorry rant over, I just hate the UK employment system with a passion. So many businesses I worked for break the law and get clean away with it.
  3. I know the date is wrong lol. Too lazy to change it
  4. Nobody else is mad enough
  5. Japanese has a cool factor with Seikos and the like but other languages no IMO. I would imagine people wont be so interested in buying them
  6. Lying or DIY. I had a basic movement serviced and it cost £8 to sent it RMSD, £8 return RMSD, £95 for the service with no parts or repair needed. Total cost £111. Now with a quartz they may have just changed the battery and called it serviced.
  7. Be careful buying any watch used full stop, there are some real sharks in the used watch game. Fake, stolen, no warranty, worse than described, bits missing, the wrong booklets, wrong box, issues, bull s adverts full of lies about age. Iv seen it all
  8. Ah always makes me feel better when I see others with WAY more of a problem than me lol
  9. Older Steinhart Nav B 47mm. I think they switched to a blue lume now that is not as good on modern ones ?
  10. I was unaware that people still used mechanical watches for most of my early life, I only discovered it when I seen a Seiko Monster review in my late 20`s early 30`s. My mother who grew up in a time when only mechanical watches were available, was stunned when I showed her a modern mechanical watch. She still thinks it is odd and a step backwards. Kind of like going back to a typewriter and candles.
  11. From reviews I have seen the quality has gone low. They were decent when I was a teenager
  12. Means you get less and less improvements in quality for you money beyond a certain point.
  13. Compare them in person in a shop in your hands. The difference in the real world is ALOT more than you can see online or on paper. However diminishing returns kick in with watches after about the £350- 700 mark
  14. The advantage of diesel is the fuel efficiency and torque on hills. They tend to be fitted with turbo, usually 121 CU inches on average I would say. Where I live in Wales you are almost constantly going either up or down in elevation so torque is very nice. I have driven plenty of them and passed my test in one but never owned one myself. As for future fuel prices, I think they will rise as electric cars become more common. Road Tax rises every year for many people because they are punishing cars that pollute more and rewarding small clean engines with low Tax rates. But when most people have electric cars they will hike electric prices in to oblivion and they will be expensive to charge lol. I cant see driving here ever being cheap, even if they invent cars that run on water they will invent a new Tax for it.
  15. They pay less than half that. That is why they have teenagers driving V6 cars
  16. This is one of the major differences between the USA and UK. I know you are probably aware of all this but I will say anyway what I think Your fuel, car tax and insurance is cheap, ours cost a bomb. Your average size engine is a V6, ours are tiny things in comparison. You hardly ever drive diesel, nearly half of us do. We call the engine size by litre, like 1.2, 2.0 etc etc we call it petrol, you call it gasoline My car engine is petrol and is about 85 CU Inch On a side note our roads are never flat and straight so Japanese cars like Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution which are only 121 CU Inches would burn off US cars with massive engines on our roads but on your roads the large engines are much faster
  17. When you have lovely watches gathering dust most of the time. Its funny how people who love watches the most end up wasting their life the most in a rotation
  18. I have one with white dial and 2824 movement. I don't have a SS strap for it but it is a very dressy watch, I would not wear it everyday or at work. Maybe one with black dial and SS strap would be a lot better as a daily wearer though. Nice watch, my only gripe is no screw down crown on my one.
  19. I have seen some really nice ones on the dark side but I just don't have the buying power. Wish I did have 1500 - 2000 spare
  20. You could always get a used watch. There are always excellent condition 1500 - 2000 Omega and Tudor for sale. People buy them and 18 months later get bored and take a huge loss in some cases.
  21. Nice, looks like Japanese Cartoon style.
  22. Sorry to hear that, my mother is feeling the effects of being 73 also. Kinda awkward to photograph them indoors at night but here is a pic anyway.
  23. So i`m using a product that comes from dead animals on a product that comes from dead animals also.
  24. I much prefer to sell UK only because of ebays habit of siding with the buyer in any dispute and shafting the seller. And if they claim the item is fake or defective they don't even seem to need any real proof, ebay will force you to pay return postage cost.
