    I think itís a evolution of social media, back in the Ďgood old daysí it was primarily a watch forum, now itís sort of a Facebook alternative for members, no bad thing really, I enjoy the diversity.
    Cheers..

    I did have a watch on and I was reading the forum while watching top of the pops.

    I was also looking at used Rolex on eBay but thought better about another post about rising used prices and went with the human league.

    Phil Oakey owns seventeen Pateks, fourteen assorted Rolex models, and five Omega Speedmasters, one of which was supposedly worn on the moon.

    In my defence I'm sure he's got the money for a collection like that!

    Jeez, what a dreadful list, truly awful. How did Stevie Wonder and an ex-Beatle come up with the worst duet ever?

    Apparently never actually meeting during the entire recording process didn't help.

    When "Come On Eileen" first broke onto MTV in the U.S., I thought it was DREADFUL! Kevin Rowland looked (and sang) like he was mentally handicapped! But over the years, I have come to really enjoy it.

    The year of my birth! My parents got me a CD a few years ago with all the number ones of 1982. There weren't many that I enjoyed! I tried to buy a birth year watch not so long ago too but that didn't go well.
