Fantastic new arrival from the fantastic @scottswatches, fantastic service and very much under promise over perform imo, because this watch is stunning and appears to be brand new (if it has been worn, it was sparingly and carefully!)

I do like a bit of colour. :thumbsup:

The colours are fantastic, this vibrant blue in the sunshine drops to a deep moody blue away from the autumn rays.

An absolute beauty and immediate favourite, has significantly improved the overall vibe of my little quartz sub-collectiin box.

Thanks again Scott.

 

Been eying up a Pendine for a while now but was reluctant to pull the trigger without trying it on 1st.. Ascot is a trek for me so was therefore hoping they'd open the little boutique in Primrose Hill again. Doesn't look like it's happening though. Can I ask what wrist size you are?

6.75 inches, about 17.5cm, but fairly narrow and round more than flat if that makes any sense. 

Remind me what watches you have (or have had) and their sizes and I'll happily see if I have something similar so you can get a direct comparison of this vs watch you have or similar if that helps?

 

Got one (I think!?)

Do you have a Marloe Coniston?

This is my wrist shot of my one, to give a comparison of wrist size for the Farer.

Vs Farer

Obviously it wears a little more compact and a fair amount less proud on the wrist being slimmer and having a dome that slopes to the bezel and then a bezel that continues that slope towards the wrist, but it gives a comparison for size with a watch you're familiar with to offer scale and shape of wrist.

I feel these are massively underrated, all down to the poor kickstarter campaign fiasco, but then it does make them very good value for money

Especially this particular one if memory serves, a generous @JayDeep giveaway on this fine forum?

Breitling superocean 42mm. I am beginning to like the watch again except that the bracelet makes my wrist itch a bit1332174950_20211030_1447462.thumb.jpg.5701a712b25780922fb7febbdd1ddc85.jpgVery strange, I have had similar problems with leather straps before but never with a stainless steel bracelet. Might give it and good scrub with soap and water.

Overall I think its a nice watch for the price.

This morning whilst pratting around with a shed in the pouring rain (at least the shed doesn't leak) I was testing out the water resistance of this. It stayed on my wrist while I, rather more enjoyably, finished off my latest pen on the lathe this afternoon. It's a fine watch indeed :thumbs_up:

Well I did something today that has made space in the drawer and maybe one day regret , I have sold all 9 of my Dirty Dozen watches as getting the full set is now somewhat elusive and getting ridiculously expensive and bought this instead a unmolested  1981 14750 GMT 

Perhaps I’ve sold my soul to the Devil that is Rolex

"If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There’s no use being a damn fool about it."

Usually attributed to W C Fields, but probably not his. Good motto though.

Very nice looking watch - 9/10. I had to deduct 1 mark from you for not lining up your bezel properly. :yes:

You will I am sure enjoy the quality of the watch long after you have forgotten any financial concern. :thumbsup:
