    Don't be so bloody opinionated. Just because the finer aesthetic detail of a watch is unimportant to you, doesn't mean it should be to the OP, or anybody else for that matter. A minor detail to one...

    Reminds me of all that fuss concerning red font on old Subs and SD's, just send em into Rolex and have them swap those crappy old dials over for a nice shiny new one with proper lume etc. It's only...

    I get that re physical delivery of the/'a' parcel, but just say the buyer receives the parcel but then submits a paypal claim saying that the item wasn't as described or is incorrect? I don't know,...

    I guess I can't be a watch enthusiast after all then, as the Reverso does nothing for me style wise, but then I've never really been a fan of tanks, and having had a quick peruse of the Lange...

    How much is too much for a GS? Well, as already alluded to, that's very much down to personal circumstances. I doubt Mark Zuckerberg would lose much sleep over paying 20K for a GS, whereas I most...

    Well, I enjoyed the post. But I viewed it as a light-hearted post Sunday lunch read, which I guess most others would too. Perhaps you should put the 'Rolex' in the 'Show your Rolex' thread, bound...

    I agree wholeheartedly with that, well the underlying message at least. Just haven't managed to get into single figures yet..., though still considerably more focused than it was 10 years ago. In...

    I have two of my fathers old watches, both of which I wear regularly, and two of my grandfathers, one of which is now my wife's daily wearer (a 1944 30T2) and the other, being a gold dress watch,...

    I'm not so sure that any refinisher with a case lapping machine will be able to achieve a factory sunburst finish on a vintage Heuer... Yes, there's probably a few more these days than 10-15 years...

    When considering chronographs in particular, the ones that spring to mind, are the cushion case cal.11/12 Autavia's like the 1163/1563/11630 etc. I know they're auto vs the Daytona's Val72 manual...
