    Good to know, although I have never know anyone to be wary of accepting or using them in NI. The Channel Island banks also issue their own notes, so I expect the same would apply.

    I agree. I also have a Steeldive ĎSKXí that I bought used on SC. The combined price of these two was under £200.

    I think it's a shortage of tanker drivers, rather than fuel per se. Probably just best to get a tanker parked beside your house and problem solved.

    A yellow Seestern has just arrived today and I must say I am very impressed. This is a seriously well finished watch for its £130ish price tag. In fact, the BoR bracelet on it's own would not be over...

    Iím not sure that I understand it either.
    Does it actually mean that a motor vehicle can only be driven on the street between 7am and 9am Mon-Fri and not at all, anytime, on Saturday or Sunday? That...

    Your movement number is later than the transitional watches. My Ď68 transitional is #2655xxxx and would actually have been manufactured in 1969, although itís a 145.022-68.

    A 145.022-69 should not have a transitional dial. However, the bezel may be original to the watch - both this and the earlier DON bezel are correct for the -69 cases. To maximise the value you should...

    Very, very nice.
    Iím down to three now, a Ďlong arrowí 005, a 0010 and a preA 1. If I was to add a fourth a smooth bezel 024 would be high on the list, or a 004.
