    Check out the Bristol Horological Society on Instagram. I think there's a UCL one too. They'll have some ideas, I'm sure.

    Nice to see that they've short-listed a "dive watch" from Reservoir that only measures up to 30 minutes. Ever the practical.

    Are you sure it was "without failure of any kind'...? I thought there was a +/1 mins per day standard applied. I know that the Omega gained 21mins during one test and lost 15mins during another.
