    We like our VW Golf R, but in the first two months it had to go back for a new turbo, then a little later a new valve in the heater system was causing a coolant leak.

    I just use a chromo or diver bezel. I know a length takes me 48 - 55 seconds, so it's not too difficult to work out how many I've done. At worst, I might be a couple out, so instead of doing 36 x 50m...

    For £1830 you could get one of a number of used but VGC Omega or Seiko GMT models, which would have the proper "travel" GMT functionality. That is, the GMT hand stays set on the 2nd time zone time...

    I paid the equivalent of around £3200 for my full set, Y-series NOS with B&P in 2015. Do I think it's worth £10k now? Well, that depends on what else that £10k would buy me. Given that the...

    Actually, when you land the air pressure inside the bottle is the same as the air pressure outside the bottle. The bottle collapses since the volume of air at sea level pressure is less than the...

    That hi-res shot of the crew shows a Fortis Chromo with the 7750 rather than the Lemania 5100. Look at the subdial at 12. The 5100 has 4 markers for 6h, 12h, 18h and 24h; the 7750 has 10 and 20...

    It's pronounced "hussif". At least it is (or was) in the RN, where they weren't issued but were available from the NAAFI. I still have one, and dug it out the other day to sew a button onto a pair of...

    Do you remember this Rolex ad? Perhaps - apart from the white dial - this is where the Polar tag came from.
