    I don't need to know the whole story. Your vitriolic replies tell me everything I needed to know. So glad I didn't send anything to you a couple of months ago before you showed yourself up on here....

    It does run, just badly. To be honest, it may have been crap before the fall, my Dad only wore it for a few hours at a time. Main problem is the edge of the domed acrylic crystal is compromised. Not...

    Going through my drawer of unfixed watches, I pulled this Mondaine out last night.

    Put another new battery in it - just a cheap one from the pound shop, rather than a Renata - and it now seems to...

    Just realised I've not got round to organising to send this off yet, and given Brendan's recent behaviour on here, can anyone recommend anybody else?

    I've also been given my Father's 1950s...

    To be fair, that is actually how a lot of high-end car dealers work.

    I went car shopping with my Uncle, who had a £150k budget for his dream car. The number of places that wouldn't even book an...

    I wish my Koa looked like that. I ordered mine online as my local place took 12 weeks to tell me they couldn't get one, mine looks nowhere near as nice as that.

    I've killed two G-Shocks at the beach. One surfing - big wipeout smashed me into the bottom. When I was paddling back out, it was full of water. It had lasted 6 years though as my only watch, so...

    I've always thought if I had to have only one watch, this would be it:

    But I've got too many that were gifts, or purchased at a special time...

    The old Shimano BioPace are oval in the opposite way to the modern ones.

    I managed to injure my knee quite badly using BioPace a few years ago.

    I've been deliberately staying away from Goldsmiths because I know I'm going to buy one.

    Still love my 10 year old+ blue one.

    The older I get, the more I like them. I was very tempted by the one in SC this week.

    I think they're a bit like mid-range Seikos, or Tesla cars - second hand ones with all the bits aligned and working well are sometimes worth more than a brand new one, because you know you don't have...

    Yeah, nothing as yet. A few updates here and there but no sign of the watch.

    Have you tried reversing over the same bump to see if that knocks it back around?

    I mean, wristwatches became popular because people didn't want to bother with pocket watches any more.

    Using your phone as a digital pocket watch seems a step backwards to me.

    Just to prove this, I very nearly forked out £140 for a NATO strap for mine, until I saw someone's comment on here that they came with it now in the box.

    Dug my box out of the loft, lo and behold,...

    Wife bought me some of these in an effort to reduce expenditure on pods, and cut down on waste (even if it is recycled).

    Because I want to time stuff.

    I think probably:

    Diver: Rolex Sub
    Chrono: Speedy Pro
    Dress: JLC Reverso

    Though for me I'd have a Pelagos over the Rolex. Maybe a co-ax Speedy for ease of use.
