  1. Hope you’re OK Bricey, you’re doing the right thing thinking about watches to take your mind off it. RTM Boy’s P101 is a good shout, or perhaps a Sinn 104? Wishing you a speedy recovery.
  2. That looks great. I hope it grows on you, I’m sure it will. Good feedback about Jura.
  3. Was going to say black. Good choice, I’m thoroughly enjoying my 1521 PVD. Let us know when it arrives.
  4. That was the same as my first watch! It had a rubber/plastic rally strap on it. Got it for my 6th birthday back in 1978. Was fascinated by the lume, loved the red seconds hand and the date. And the interaction with the manual wind. This is the piece that is responsible for this watch infliction. I’ve seen a few on eBay, must pick one up.
  5. Congratulations. I picked up the PVD version a few months ago. Love it. They wear really well. What other Squale do you have?
  6. What about a Weiss? https://weisswatchcompany.com/products/38mm-standard-issue-field-watch?variant=33237273477206 Think this looks great.
  7. Seamaster would be my choice. Wore my Seamaster as pretty much my one watch for 17 years, been everywhere with me, God knows how I didn’t lose it at times.
  8. Very nice, I like that a lot. Got to be a keeper. Enjoy.
  9. I placed an order with them for 5 straps about a month ago. As PaulBoy, took about a week to reach me in London. Overall pleased with them, I wasn’t expecting the highest of quality given the price and feel got what I paid for. In the order was a Marine Nationale strap, think it was about £6 or £7, in future I think I’ll stay with Natostrapstore.com for those type of straps, they are about £18 but much better without paying Erica’s mega bucks. Ordered a couple of 19mm leather straps for an SNXS79 I have which were perfect. I didn’t get charged anything by HMRC either. Cheers
  10. Great write up Ben. Think that looks great on the new strap. Feel the white dial SMP looks much better on a rubber strap or nato than the bracelet. Think you’ve found the perfect strap for it. Cheers
  11. Yes, absolutely. And it would be Omega without a doubt, would love to be able to afford to have a collection of only Omega’s. Easily think of 4 different Speedmasters I’d like, 4 different Seamasters, an Aquaterra. Lovely.
  12. Gutting, I know it’s hassle to send it back but surely they can’t get away with that. How many other people might they do that to.
  13. Morning all, Squale 1521 for me. Have a good day.
  14. Definitely reckon the Bulova Marine Star wears well, wasn’t aware of that model, going to do some investigation on that. Cheers
