I was going back from 2013 in my photos, as far as it’s goes back on my phone and saw photos of my previous watches so I though I would share, as I say be gentle:

I like the CW on the strap and the Deep Blue looks good, although hard to see the dial properly in that pic. 

Which one is difficult with the pic? The deep blue was a MOP dial. I really liked it but flipped it straight away, think I made a tenner on it, Alan Sugar beware :tongue: 

i would buy another but I think they are mainly in America, I see the brand on the bay but not this one

Ah, MOP, I thought it was grubby lens and bad photography :laugh:

Although I'd go for a black dial and bezel, that watch has the style and proportions I like in a dive watch. Did it seem well made in the short time you had it?

Slightly biased, but of them all I prefer the 2CWs. 

I like CW, tempted when a sporty 43mm comes out, sense I’m going to be waiting a long long time

:laugh: grubby lens and bad photography may have played a part. No complaints, it was a Quartz not auto but good weight, size. Question is would I have another, answer yes. This from there range was the most daring they do a lot of normal divers.

It’s a Deep Blue Sea Ram, there are a couple just looked on the bay, some are from wider countries than the UK

The blue dialled Hugo Boss and the Deep Blue diver are the stars of the show for me (and that includes the Breitling - Sorry!).  I'd be happy wearing either one of those.  As others have said, not really a bad selection TBH, and I was expecting worse :thumbsup:

I respect your opinion, just curious the Hugo Boss Quartz you rate better than the auto Breitling, is that based on looks or brand? Cheers

Based purely on looks mate, and the fact that I only buy quartz, not automatic.  I probably should have made that clear, and of course the Breitling is an awesome watch, just not for me :thumbsup:

I would have preferred Quartz for me purely as it’s easier and I expect cheaper to service, I couldn’t get my head round the wild pricing, so some 2014–2018 were more expensive I’d seen 2 seawolf chrono Quartz one 2012 and one 2013 and they were just slightly cheaper, to be honest it blew my mind

It was my daughter who worked in TKMAX and there wasn’t a Rolex to be seen.

You have more chance of finding one in my recycled cardboard. You be amazed at the stuff that gets chucked out. And one of the boys did actually find a box with four watches in it, one of which was a Rolex. Money is a common find as well. 

:huh:

All I’ve found so far is a new IPhone power bank and again in an unopened cardboard box a new Swarovski studded bracelet. 
 

My eyes are peeled
