    I had an extensive conversation with him some years back about repairs to mine, minute hand post and bellows. He was professional and authoritative. I spoke to several people who had used him over on...

    I think we are so used to an England who don't believe they can win and so desperately try to hold on to what they've got that we (or at least I) forget that this England team are capable of carrying...

    They were known as shitehawks in Shakespear's time as they were happy to eat the contents of middens. I always see them by Motorways, it started as you went down the long hill towards Kingston Blount...

    Yes. because it's about momentum, not gravity. As for Everest, Hunt's expedition was run on a military basis, with check lists including things like winding and synchronising watches. Remember that...

    I'm personally certain that Mallory made the summit and have been gently writing and researching the evidence to support that claim for a couple of years now.

    At the heart of the issue is the...

    I’d say it’s something a bit special from one of the great watchmaking houses. It’s an automatic alarm watch which offers a fairly discrete, and unique, level of functionality and when fully working...

    Find me any lever escapement watch that keeps time well when it's in the latter half of its reserve. That's more about the way that a spring can deliver torque and the effects of reduced torque than...

    Just out of curiosity, when you say 6 seconds a day, are you checking every 24 hours or after six days and dividing by six? Because if you are leaving it sitting for six days, with an 8 day barrel,...

    We live in a country with national debt hovering around 100% of GDP. We have a house price bubble that has grown to the point that I don’t even have to end that sentence. Our political system is...

    I’m lucky that pretty well anything that was excellent once gives me about the same grin. I’ve got most of what I want already and so if I ever found myself poorer, I doubt much would change.

    Another vote for the bus service. As long as you are not trying to get anywhere late at night it's brilliant and sticks to the timetable well. The fact that you can still get tickets for a number...

    More generally there's a complete disparity between the condition of the indices, date shroud and the paint. The dial is original and probably looked rather tired so it's been redone. Badly. ...

    I'm pretty sure we already have - the second hand is a giveaway as it was brought in with the Dynamics and infected everything in the late sixties/early seventies. it's a cheap redial, and the ten...
