  1. Yes I did look at the 50th anniversary but it's the most expensive one and for me a little bland, I'm not overly keen on non bright bracelets...
  2. Have you seen the other Citizen Satellite Wave I posted in the Japanese watch section, if you think this has a lot going on the other will give you an instant migraine
  3. Today I found this (not in Tesco Leatherhead!) in Guildford, I have been lusting after it for a while now, limited edition of 1973 per colour and comes with a fantastic display box with plaque and certificate of authenticity for limited numbers. But when I tried it on I was so underwhelmed by it that I didn't get it, it wasn't as green as shown and it wears a lot smaller than it shows in the pictures, shame really as I'm in the market for a new watch....
  4. I had a look at the Seiko Introduce The Prospex 1986 Quartz Diver LE topic and when I clicked the advertisement there was a panel to the right showing a Citizen divers satellite wave which caught my eye. I have too many dive watches already, they're big and chunky and look ok on my fat troll wrist so is what I tend to go for but the tech in this excites me, solar powered, radio controlled and satellite GPS for instant change all over the world. However I would like something other than diver style, so put in the search satellite wave and came up with the Citizen webpage for these types and this watch came up as the best alternative https://www.citizenwatch.com/us/en/product/CC7000-01L.html?cgid=satellite-timekeeping#start=6 it doesn't seem to be available in the UK but is a rather fantastic, if somewhat busy, looking watch. What do people think, to many sub dials, confusing layout or just plain ugly. There are a couple of videos showing how it works and it does look like it has exceptional finishing and tooling but does look big!!
  5. Um....have to admit to being more interested in the citizen promaster in the advertisement to the right..... https://www.watchtime.com/wristwatch-industry-news/fresh-tuna-seiko-introduces-the-prospex-1986-quartz-divers-35th-anniversary-limited-edition/ Sorry!
  6. Boom AGAIN! And a £1 to spare....
  7. £500 that's all I have.............. However if I won the lottery (doubtful) then if money was not limited then who knows! I have only ever, my entire life, had limited money and unfortunately my mother always taught me not to spend what I don't have.
  8. You could also get a welded handrail purpose made with glass fittings, nowadays the toughened/laminated glass is structural so self supports and would only need some small feet to go onto the laminate flooring. If you allow around £600/m² for glass and polished SS handrail you should be allowing enough to get something half decent. As for the floor option you would only need to create a rebate around the edge of the floor for the glass to sit into and with a small mastic bead to 'hold' it in place, you could acid etch it if you didn't want to see through it and you wouldn't loose any floor space to handrails and balustrades.
  9. Coming in from America so slow delivery, I have this one and a Blue one, I might order a couple for the kids as my daughter keeps taking mine and has scratched the glass!!
  10. Depending how deep the recess is around the edge, flooring to window frame, you could also place some toughened & laminated glass over it of suitable thickness to walk on. Being octagonal and small the deflection would probably allow something like 15-20mm thickness. This also depends on how deep your pockets are too!!
  11. The window in the floor is crying out for a glass balustrade around it rather than the dog frame!
  12. It'll be one of these stupid things..... Modern day tech 'innit.
