  1. So I’ve had four recent disappointing purchases:- 1), NTTD Seamaster, I bought this blind and it was a BIG mistake, I just couldn’t get away with how light it was on the wrist, it’s a gorgeous time piece and I like the bond connection (and the subtle way they did it this time) but it just felt cheap on the wrist, even as a smaller guy I prefer my watch to have a noticeable heft to it. Fortunately since it was an online purchase I was able to return it for a refund under the 14 days distance selling regulation so didn’t end up out of pocket. 2), Bulova Chronograph A “Surfboard”, I
  2. Probably between these two:- I’m probably leaning towards the Tudor, at £3,900 before any AD discount it’s a remarkable watch for it’s price point,
  3. I have absolutely no idea how I’ve managed to miss this over the last week-or-so, but wow! That new selection of BB Chrono’s is simply stunning:- I do get a slight Daytona vibe from them (not a bad thing), although it’s still more than different enough to be taken seriously as it’s own thing, probably leaning towards the white even though the black looks more legible. Priced at £3,900 on bracelet and with the recent price hike by Omega for the Speedy could we see this as the go-to “Budget” Chrono on the market, especially considering it’s got the herita
  4. I got a man and his watch last year, very much worth the money. I’ll have a look at a journey through time, although £300 might be a bit steep! I’m open to read anything tbh, from history around specific manufacturers, the history of horology, watches in military, industry and aerospace to simply catalogues heavy on picture or things that make good coffee table style books. Ive got some way to go to have 4m worth full (I’ll need a bigger bookshelf as mines only 3m!).
  5. Hey, Hope everyone has started the week well, I’ve recently moved home and have a generous sized bookshelf that needs some filling so I thought I’d ask if anyone knows of any good watch books or catalogues that would make a good addition, are worth a read, or will just make a nice coffee table/display pieces? Cheers,
  6. If I had £100 to spend on Amazon I’d probably grab a Mirage Watch Roll, I’ve had one in my basket multiple times but haven’t pulled the trigger (Edit: just checked and Mirage seem to no longer list on Amazon UK). Beyond that I’d probably use it towards another hobby or save them for when something stands out that I want/need.
  7. I got out of supply chain & logistics last year as I saw the storm coming, kind of glad I did as everyone I know that is still in the industry are having a total nightmare.
  8. Can’t go wrong with the Kamasu, amazing watch for the money and a great first purchase, I’ve got one in black but wish I had got the blue (the blacks too uninteresting imo), let us know how you get on but most importantly make sure to upload some photos once it arrives!
  9. That’s not too bad, it’s only running 30 days slow... might want to regulate it though
  10. Yeah, ignore the snobs, they exist in every hobby (I also collect men’s high-end fragrances and the snobbery in that niche is unreal). Most people here are great and very helpful/knowledgeable, but the best thing is they are welcoming to everyone which is great! Hows the search going down far? I think you had mentioned possibly going for a Kamasu?
  11. I like it, but think I’d need to sell a kidney to have a chance at one during my lifetime, the standard sub at just over £7k is my “achievable” grail lol!
  12. There’s a sale section? Maybe I shouldn’t ask... this could be dangerous for my bank balance...
  13. I was more referring to the colour, that it has no gradient to it, it’s a single tone resulting in it just looking flat and a little underwhelming.
  14. Maybe I need to see one in person, but the Pelagos always looks a little “flat” to me in photos.
