    I'm not sure how any 1000m Dive watch can be 'good value', when the technology is utterly pointless! There may be cheaper or more expensive versions, but any watch with 200m or even 100m WR will meet...

    Timpsons charged me 25 for the battery in my Certina (their lifetime deal).
    Best deal was a market stall for one of my Seikos (lockdown desperation). He asked if I wanted a standard battery for 2...

    I have a complete weakness for Chronos (almost everyone of my watches is!), and anything with a reverse Panda dial gets me reaching for my credit card!!

    Yes, especially as current quartz watches are more accurate, more robust, cheaper and have less servicing requirements than any mechanical movement!

    But the joke is that we have all this hassle with VAT and shipping - and there aren't any import duties on goods from the EU. Imagine the hell No Deal would have produced if Import Duties (which are...

    Yes, finally a Bremont I like!!! Though anything with a reverse Panda dial gets my vote! However, its still a ridiculous price, even though less OTT than the E-type limited edition.

    Ooh! Sharp!! I see where you are coming from though! I too was wondering how a discussion of a dodgy Bremont had turned into a profile of the motivation of Rolex buyers!

    My guilty secret is that I rather like the modern Rotary Navitimer hommage - better known as Chavitimers. I have several! Quite appallingly vulgar of course, but I like them!
