    I love the reversion to the original blue markings on the dial and hands.

    Then realise your rear brakes were binding the whole time, after you adjusted them the day before.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. I love the hands on that Accurist, like a 1940s JLC.

    The Fortis Stratoliner has a tachy bezel and a couple of different dial options (numerals or indices). This is mine.

    That is quite funny, no offence intended. I’ve never heard of an adult fan changing clubs. I ‘chose’ Arsenal when I was 5, most of my class chose Chelsea as it was the Peter Osgood era.

    New phone contract Sky or Virgin

    We have Sky and it’s good, but be aware they don’t have a deal with TfL so you can’t use Wifi on the Tube.

    If that matters to you at all, or indeed you ever spend any time in London.

    Smiths W10 NOS from 1969

    Wow, that looks stunning. If I’ve worked out the price correctly it is £10k, which is about 10x the going rate. No idea if it is worth it but very special.

    ‘Rolodex’ was apparently first used in 1958.

    Rolex and Radox and 1908

    Mr. Curta’s Eureka moment did get me searching in a different direction.

    Maybe ρολ?ι (roloi) + Radox = Rolex.
