    When it became clear that the PRS-57 was not going to be a hand winder I moved into the happy position of there being nothing in the shop that I want to buy.

    I feel blessed.

    I think an element of frustration and longing is part and parcel of any good pastime.

    If you don't want wait for a watch there are still plenty of options. Goldsmiths, for example, had a lot of...

    Cartier Tank is my standard suggestion for a woman because focus is on the look of thing and brand recognition. It's almost as if a mechanical movement would be an unwanted distraction. A 16 year...

    That does look good. Before I was asked to take a zero off the budget a Cartier Tank had been my suggestion.

    That looks good mineral glass would usually be a downside but on a dressier watch I suspect it is not and issue. No date good too.

    Nice woman's watch on a tight budget?

    I've been asked for an idea for a: new, dressy, but not tiny, woman's watch on a tight, sub £200 preferably £100 budget. Will probably end up with a fashion brand but I wonder if something a little...

    I went through a similar of elimination process recently. Skirted round; JLC, Habring, Grand Seiko, Dornbluth, Rolex Cellini. My first conclusion was that an occasionally worn dress mechanical has to...

    I've worn the GMT II for the best part of 20 years whenever I want, often for months at a time, day in day out. Before the last few years the only time somebody asked about it was in a bar in...

    Not to my taste at all but I can't help thinking that 5241s and 5240s might start to be come collectable. They have a better fit with modern life than a GMT.

    I think that is the crux with this one. It is the only watch I own that has been noticed and remarked on. I'm 6'5" and 15 stone so even at my age I'm not particularly concerned about my security. It...

    Thanks for all the replies and this advice. Looking back, I've worn whilst travelling alone it in an awful lot of dodgy places in; Europe, Asia and the USA without a second thought. At the time it...

    Can anyone recommend a dealer who could would give me a reliable base price?

    The 1983 reissue is a great looking watch in its own right.

    I've had automatic and manual CWC divers in the past and the reissue a much better looking thing. Pictures really don't do it justice....

    Hard to take a photo that explains why, but for the £650 I paid s/h the reissue is great value. If i lost it, and liking it as much as i do, I don't think i could avoid paying £900 for a replacement....

    Thanks, that confirms my view that if I let one of the Explorer or, more likely, GMT II go a complex as you like bespoke watch is affordable with about a year to wait.

    Admirable watchmaking but too austere. My instinctive enjoyment of the Hanhart aesthetic is telling in that respect.

    It should be perfect but I've never had a Hamilton, and i have had quite a few, that wasn't frustratingly less than the sum of the parts.

  25. One watch hand wind collection; suggestions beyond a Speedmaster

    I've previously got down to a two watch collection; a Rolex Explorer and a GMT II and have found during lockdown that I just don't wear them enough to justify automatic movements.

    That led me to...
