  1. Hi rhaythorne,

    just had a look at your old page listing rlt watches. The entry for rlt 4 mentions a legend about rlt 50/50, just wanted to know if you'd like to put the record straight or leave it as is, since watch rlt 4 50/50 is numbered just like the others in the series. My suspicion is there might be a 51/50, owned by Roy himself, and maybe being at the root of said legend/myth.

    picture availsble upon request! ;)

    best regards, in or out :P

      Hi namaste (isn't that a bit like saying namaste namaste? :-S),

      That's interesting.  I don't really maintain the page anymore but I'd love to see a picture of said watch.

      All the best,

      Rich H

      Oh, I was an "in", but I guess we're all "out" now ;-) 

  2. I'm glad I didn't know that at the time! It's not the watch that would have skipped a beat! I obviously need diver's watch!
  3. UPDATE ON THE 69! water resistance I'm on holiday, taking the kids to visit their grandparents from both sides who have all emigrated to the South of France. Not much computer time available, a lot of time is spent around swimming pools. It's very hot down here. The problem is I have brought my RLT69 with me, and I have already twice forgottent to take it off before swimming (I know, some people don't deserve their RLT's) Good news! Jumping in the pool and swimming, even under water, have not done any harm so far! If I remember correctly these watches are rated 50m, so that's a 100% pass rate so far on water resistance! I'll update if I have another senior moment around the swimming pool!
  4. Alan you're not trying hard enough, those bookshelves could make room for many more!
  5. There is too much butter on those trays! I like the Tag Monaco ( I know it's not a Manuel wind-up. And oh boy is he a wind-up ). I'm sorry can't hide it, can't help it, I dig the Monaco. Now I would never buy one (well not for the asking price) because there are a lot of other options that offer more "watch" for the price. I mean a proper good movement, maybe in-house, with some history, so from that point of view the Speedmaster sounds like a good option to me. But there's a lot of choice out there, and if you are willing to consider secondhand, you are spoiled for choice! Good luck!
  6. I love the M2 (and the EarlyBird, and the Caribbean 1000 ) DI3077 looks very good too... and quality seems to be on a par with RLT (well almost!)
  7. Great watches Ian! As Pavel said, the dial and hands look fab/mint! Are the crowns original? Great find as a pair, congrats Ian.
  8. There can't be enough, ever. If there is not a next one, you're just someone with more watches than he needs! As soon as there's enough, you're not collecting any more! As long as you have this next one on the horizon, (no matter how far away the horizon!), you're collecting, you're in business, you have a reason to live, you can waste time searching the internet, walking into every watch shop you come across, spend hours on forums, ebay, etc. To be or not to be! What was the question? (help I need a doctor )

    175 pages of forum topics to read I guess I'll skip the JoT leaving posts then ! Still curious to find out what happened. So many changes : Scottishcammy is back, Ericp is back, is there also a weekly topic from NeilC praising Foggy's Seiko's, and Foggy praising the superior quality of Omega's??? Nalu, taking good care of yourself? Still camping at the foot of the Afghan hills? and as far as Mac's posts are concerned, even when I read them I usually don't get them ! ;) But it wouldn't be the same without them !
  10. That is an amazing watch Roger. I'm going to ask Roy to hold one for me!! Seriously, I know not a lot of people here are familiar with the concept, but I'd consider that a KEEPER! Enjoy without moderation for many years to come!

    Been a while, soaking up the past 18 months here on the forum as I go through the posts and the many new RLT watches that Roy has created since. You guys have been on my mind a lot during all this time. Sometimes things come your way, sometimes they don't. Still waiting for the rising tide, but it's nice to be back, like visiting old friends. A lot of catching up to do, more than I have tim eofr, but hey, that's what nights are for! cheers, Pieter
  13. Thanks everyone! Where to start??? I had a great birthday. My nicest present is... not a watch (not had a new watch for about 18 months )... but will be delivered 9 months after my birthday! Number 3 was concieved on my birthday. I'll soon have more kids than watches!

    It's London

    yes! I lived in France for 6 years, I spend about a month in France every year or more, my parents live there, French is my mother tongue, I have even eaten frog legs on several occasions, though I stopped when I found out most were imported from China, I'm not too keen on snails, though I will eat them if I have to. I'm not saying I like the French more than I like the Brits, Americans or Chinese. I just have no prejudice and don't buy into "patriotism", citizenship, national pride, belonging to a Nation, a country, a race, one that is better than an other, different, other. Although most people feel the need to belong to some kind of group they can identify themselves with, I think it's a very divisive thing, just like religion. It's a way to reasure ourselves, help us get a (false) sense of who we are, and most of us what we are not, the others, the unknown, all we don't understand, so that we can project all our fears on them. We ALL like the French, most of us just don't know it!
