Now, if I could just find one of these somewhere closer to the £2.99 I think I paid at a car boot sale in 1987, I will be a happy man...

Speak for yourself, to me it is a genuine physical anchor to my childhood.

I had a grey/silver one as a kid and loved it. 

It might look nothing like a watch I'd now collect, but it is probably a good percentage of the reason that I do collect.

:thumbs_up:

We seem to think alike @Bricey

I managed to snag one a few years ago (the original was played with until he literally fell apart). That little guy was the start of my obsession with digital watches, which led to other watches and here I am. :) He's a bit too small and fragile to wear so I bought a similarly coloured G-Shock to wear in his place. :laugh:

You do not want to know how long it took my mind to process the word “snag” there, I was sickened!:laugh:

Putting this here in the hope that someone buys it so I it goes from my EBay watching list as I am stupidly tempted after seeing one in a recent WRYW thread, it looks lovely and I really want to buy it but I cannot justify spending anymore before I've had a chance to settle down on my recent purchases (and decide which could go to make room for it!)

The seller is accepting offers and just reduced from £275 to £250 so there might be a deal to be had.

This finally went yesterday, now I wait to see if it appears on the WRUW thread next week and whether jealousy hits me as hard as I fear!

Not watch related, but this rather smart tiny (for the time) Art Deco styled battery valve radio....

As seen in the 1948 film 'Red Shoes'........

And before anyone asks, yes I bought it...........(complements it's slightly younger sister, the P20B, that I've had for about 25 years and only just restored...)

It would have been around 1950 and my grandpa had an massive valve radio which nobody else was allowed to go within 3 feet of. My dad got one of those new fangled portable radios and set it running behind the sacred valve set. Grandpa lost his sh!t because someone had dared to touch his radio and switched the bugger off, except it was still playing music. Plug switched off, still playing. Plug out the wall, you’ve got it. :laugh:

I know you've posted that magazine cover before, but it still makes me smile. Bloke doing the gardening in a shirt and tie. No wonder he's sweating. :laugh:

Looking at that picture more closely and I realise that he is not digging but pushing an antique lawn mower, my dad had one just like it, the handle is very distinctive, about the same time, and yes they did make you sweat:laugh:

Not more on the way?:laugh:

God I hope not!!!!!

Going to remove the back row (or maybe the middle two of the back row), which will leave us 11-13 seats, which is getting necessary as the older girls all have partners that are (lockdowns permitting) likely to come out with us on occasion.

The added bonus is being able to split kids rather than have everyone sat next to a sibling which can be bothersome on longer journeys.

This is very much a weekend / holiday's bus. Mrs B and I both have a normal car with 5 seats and so for little local journeys we probably use the two smaller vehicles to make parking easier.

We are planning (again once lockdowns and restrictions lift) a few euro-road trip holidays next year, so this should be just the ticket.
