  1. Just couldn't resist strapping this one back on. Loving everything about this baby - neatness of design makes it wearable for casual everyday rather than exclusively a dress watch imho. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Traser Navigator while watching the cricket world cup final. Come on England!! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Yep, boring git wearing the same watch as yesterday. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Yes it's a classic. I've flirted with it before. The only thing that bugs me about what appears to be a substantial and well built watch is why it is only 50m WR. Surely Longines could have stretched to 100m with such a case? The WR doesn't preclude it from being a serious contender for me. It's just a bit 'meh' given what I expected Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk

  6. Is there going to be a reveal post? Seems that the presentation of each description is designed to promote B more. Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
  7. Haven't worn this one in ages. The Reactor Gamma. 300m WR, 100m WR with the crown unscrewed! Crazy. This thing is built like a tank. I have a fair few tough watches, but this thing is probably the toughest. And the lume is ridiculous. Reactor's strap line is 'The best built performance sports watch.. Period.' They may have a point. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. Muchas gracias* *no logical reason for switching to Espanol Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. That is VERY cool. I love how they've switched the emphasis with regards dial placement. Simple yet clever. Quanto es por favour senor?!
  10. I think Im going to have to sell a few watches as my taste is apparently ahead of my budget. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Both beautiful Can't choose a favourite. I really like the brand's 'Terrascope' model. Very cool.
  12. Sorry gents, have been off the grid for a bit. Thanks for all your excellent suggestions. Some really cool and individual pieces that come at the GMT thing from lots of different angles between them. Your pics have definitely helped me progress my thinking as to what I want. I'd like something with a modern feel, but still classic overall. Probably a mechanical I think, seeing as I'm new to mechanical but already have two! I didn't get any feedback from anyone on the Armand Nicolet I posted. Any thought s on the model or even just the brand? And my budget is now around the £1,000 mark,
  13. Have been rocking the INOX for most of the day, but changed to the newest addition (arrived on Thursday) in order to run the mechanism in (if indeed that's a thing - opinion on rhe need for new mechanicals to 'settle' seems divided) Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you sir! The Seiko I have is often referred to as the Polar Explorer due to its many similarities to your original. What's the team's thoughts on the Armand Nicolet I referenced at the top of the thread? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. The Mido is nice. The Seiko is cool. There are some very interesting suggestions chaps. I haven't seen the one that induces dribbling yet though The Orient is very nice. I could see myself wearing it. Same with a fair few of the suggestions. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  16. This one appeals Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
  17. Definitely a good possibility Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
  18. The Seiko definitely ticks the box of having its GMT scale on the dial rather than the bezel. However, it's too similar to my existing Seiko GMT. I didn't mention this before (apologies chaps) but I'd like a little refinement/ understated style, so no G Shocks. The Rolex is of course not even in the budget ballpark, but to be honest it isn't what I'm looking for aesthetically either. This Monta Atlas GMT is closer to what I'd like, although it too is a little over budget. Sent from my SM-T230NU using Tapatalk
  19. Cheers bro Ita surprisingly wearable considering it's tank-like qualities imho. I've missed it. The hexagonal-ish bezel seems to divide opinion. I'm a fan but many aren't. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  20. I'd like to buy myself a new (or new to me at least) GMT watch. I have one in my collection and find it very useful in keeping track of my youngest son's time while he's been travelling for the last two years (and is off again soon). My requirements aren't too specific - can be quartz or mechanical, most dial colours considered. The only specific requirement I have is that the GMT time measurement isn't on the bezel as it is with my Seiko Sportura Kinetic GMT as shown here. I fancy one where the GMT bit is within the dial. I've seen this Armand Nicolet which I quite like, but it's maybe
  21. Finally got a fresh battery for this one today, having let it languish dead in my watch box for the last month or two. Went mad and paid for new seals and a water resistance test as well! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  22. New arrival today And yes, I am very happy and have shamelessly posted this new addition on three separate threads! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  23. Here's the reason for my question chaps. Very happy The white dial one is still with RW service. Thry take ages but I believe they are vwry thorough with the regulation process, which is appreciated. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  24. Thanks for your post and advice Joe The watch is still at RW Service. The guy there has fixed the issue, which he described as teo cogs in the setting system being faulty. I wish I could explain the detail but my horological understanding is way behind both his and yours! Thankfully my identical black new arrival doesn't have the same issues!
