    I agree, bronze watches have zero appeal to me. If this watch was gold it would be fine (and expensive!), it looks nice, but I see no appeal in a watch that will turn a manky colour.

    Up to around 2012 it was standard practice for Rolex ADs to swap dials on certain models where several dial options were offered. Indeed, dials could be swapped retrospectively after purchase if the...

    Sheer arrogance from Rolex, they need to remind themselves who actually owns the watch, it isn’t their property.

    In principle I think scrums should remain an integral part of the game, but the need to reset the scrum 2 or 3 times spoils the flow of the game. The Rugby Union purists will defend this, but I think...
