blimey, is that because you had pre-existing complications which could not be or, were not foreseen, requiring the 'supertough' joint? Sounds like you should ask the hospital to comment if it was a problem with the first hip, or its use in your case.

My kinda Easter cross

I've just noticed this watch has a sigma dial - the two Greek letters σ either side of the word Swiss.  Have a look at the Hodinkee article here to see what this symbolises

https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/what-is-a-sigma-dial

The weird thing is I bought a watch yesterday with a Sigma dial, and thought it was the first one I had owned!

I can't make head nor tail of that article scott, it doesnt seem to reach any conclusion as to what these mean, and i usually like hodinkee for their vids at least. It just seems to leave open the suggestion that the watch contains precious metal? To me it just suggests 18ct gold? Am i missing something? I can see where they are coming from, but i think they are wrong identifying it as for the purpose of the owner, surely it would be for the purpose of a watch repairer? Advising them of the soft nature of the metals and their value? You woul not want to prise the back of that with a rusty screw driver out the back of an old BMW. :speak-no-evil-monkey:

basically it was a quality mark to show the buyer that no corners were cut in making the watch, at a time where gold had rocketed in value so some people were using gold plate for some items like hands and hour markers in gold cases.

It's a good thing, and worth looking for

i think i get it, sort of more of a badge to say you've got the best model like M5 on the back of a 5 series BMW.

hi Nigel,i had my left hip replaced 5 years ago no problems.the time had come this year to have the right hip replaced so i duly went through the usual preamble until i had the op on the 23rd of march.8 days later the pin/stem/spike which had been hammered down the centre of my shortened thigh bone came loose allowing the leg to point itself in whichever direction it liked.i am a biggish chap 6ft and 16 1/2stone  of which about  a stone or so is flab,the rest is just me.that may have something to do with the failure of the first joint but i was 19stone back when i had my left one done.i have been described as being of robust construction.the new "supertough"joint is i think the remedial surgeon is just using the belt and bracelet approach so he does not get egg on his face..i had the hip x rayed after the second op and the radiologist said it had the longest pin/stem/spike he had ever seen on a hip joint.running in instuctions:biggrin: for the second joint are very different from the from those of the first.this time besides the obvious precautions i must not walk more than 20 yards a day using both crutches for 6 weeks to let everything heal and knit together.at the moment i am just glad to be at home in the minimum of pain and looking forward to the arrival of my second granddaughter.later on i might have a rethink about raising some dust over the first joint though but i think i will just put it down to one of lifes experieces,cheers  kevin

I can understand how you feel, having just had surgery on my foot, its always a big relief when its done. 

Good luck with the recovery process. :yes:
