  1. Thanks - I think I need to do some research! So many to chose from although I saw a couple that I liked but were out of stock!
  2. Is it a ‘standard’ model scuba dude or do you think it’s a modified one? I don’t think I have the skills to mod one so would be good to be able to buy and wear! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. +1 from me. I think the watch in first picture (the run Chronograph?) in the OP's link was the original design that has 'inspired' the designs. Why not make one like that with no date? Or maybe, a black faced one - again with no date - nice!
  4. I'm glad you purchased that - I was deliberating on it, so whilst disappointed, you saved me some money! Nice watch and the exhibition case with movement is great!
  5. I’m very new to this hobby but I’ve always like the idea of a manual wound watch and to the end recently purchased a Smiths PRS29 military. Time factors now put a Selitta movement as I understand that the previous ETA was becoming harder to source. I really like it but I’m worried about overwinding it! I’ve been assured that you wind until you feel resistance and that’s what I do every morning- a nice little ritual for me![emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. @Craftycockney Thanks again! I'll have a look for a second hand one but failing that maybe a new one. Good tip re the pre cut foam - as you say - its not shown on their site. Thanks for the info on the watches as well.
  7. @Craftycockney Thanks! I quite like the fact that the Case Farm ones come with the the cut outs pre done and the watch cushions included. I have looked at buying the Peli Case separately and then add the 'pick and pluck' foam, etc but it seems to work out at the same sort of money. The Case Farm one means that I won't make a hash go making my own watch slots!! On a different note - nice collection! Is the Alpina an 'older' piece - I can't see it on their website. Also, what is the one at the bottom right?
  8. I know, I know - it was always going to be a risky subject .............. Only 6 watches may prove to be a problem as I don't even own a Vostok, yet! And apparently you have to have several of them...................!
  9. I'm thinking of getting Peli case to keep my watches in. Strange, on a watch forum, I know, but I have limited myself to only owning 6 watches. Three are lifetime keepers and the other 3 have potential to be changed. I don't particularly want to have them in a display case. To that end, I thought a 6 watch case like this one from The Case Farm might do the job. https://www.thecasefarm.co.uk/shop/cases/watch/peli-6x-watch-case/ Has anyone had/have on and what did you think of it as a storage option? Thanks
  10. I have used one of these in the gym for years. Lost the first one so got another. I mainly use it to time my rest periods during my workout - as a stopwatch. Like most of these digital watches I can never work out which button to press, and in which combination, to change the time so for half the year it's an hour out I have used one of these in the gym for years.

  11. Your story at the market made me laugh so much!! Luckily you know/knew him but I can well imagine the scene - an Inspector Clouseau (or more recently a Mr Bean) moment I think! Be sure to let us know when you next go shopping!
  12. Aaah! I see that now - many thanks - I'll have a poke with a stick!
  13. Am I correct in thinking that I’m order to release the battery I need to release the small screw to the right of the actual battery? To me , it looks like the small metal tang with the hole in it is holding it in place? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
