  1. The Richard Mille Bubba Watson is made for just this. Although you could probably buy a golf course for what it costs
  2. Seems pretty good for the money. I'd have the onyx and put it on a rubber strap.
  3. The Ball Magneto S, with its closable magnetic shield over the display cashback. Daft. But I still want one.
  4. If it helps, in this case, JeanRichard (one word) is the surname, his first name was Daniel. They had a couple of really nice designs, my favourite being the JR1000 Diverscope in green, although I'd need to try out the 50mm case before committing!
  5. This vintage looking diver, but with silicone hairspring and escapement, and forwards/backwards quick set date..
  6. Haha, yes I suppose so; a constant reminder that the weekend is but a fleeting relief in an otherwise constant grind
  7. Thank you OP, I love a good complications rant. Why would I need to know the day of the week when diving? Actially thinking about it, the only time I forget what day it is, is on holiday, which is also the only time I'd be diving. Even so, date would suffice. Far more useful when under the surface is a power reserve: Thinking about only diving on holiday, I suppose a GMT could be justified: Aside from divers, I appreciate complications, but have little interest minute repeaters, perpetual calendars etc. What I do like is when complication is implemented in a way without text or numbers, regardless of how impractical: Month: Day: <pretentious post begins> There is something about the way that these display the passing of time which moves away from the man-made segmented concept of time, and conveys a more natural, fluid notion of how we pass through life <pretentious post ends>
  8. Although I'm not a fan of cushion cases, this is one of the watches that stood out for me at W&W2021. I like the discrete date window and the colouring, and the flash of colour on the second hand.
  9. It's a bit like having sporty low profile wheels on a Land Rover; they look cool and probably fine for your use, but still a contradiction that I couldn't get past.
  10. Thanks for the replies. Careful magnet experiment coming up!
  11. Going through my late Dad's things, I found this ladies' watch in a dresser. I'd love to restore it for my wife to wear. As you can see, it is pretty corroded, and the crown is missing. Gently winding by pushing the ratchet wheel, it starts , but not for long. What material do you think the case is made from? Silver wouldn't corrode like that would it? Here I have rubbed some Brasso to see what's underneath Inadvertently rotated the entire thing in the case while pushing the ratchet wheel. I love the number style and the intricate hands, and the index markers really shine.
  12. As someone who lives within walking distance of Upton hall, this is very interesting. Hoping for lockdown easing soon!
  13. I always thought an open date window was so that the date could always be read (or inferred) regardless of where the minute hand was.
  14. Edit, too early in the morning- I read chronometer, but registered chronograph. Anyway, this is both.
  15. This comes in on budget - The Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Racer Chronograph https://www.jurawatches.co.uk/collections/sports-watches/products/ball-watch-company-engineer-hydrocarbon-racer-chronograph-cm2198c-s1cj-sl
