    I always felt a bit of an odd one out in not 'getting' the Dreadnought. In 38mm it suddenly makes complete sense to me. Lovely. I'll be looking forward to that arriving.

    And this is precisely why the argument over there was so solid. Almost every inch of it had been argued here, at WUS, or over at IWL over the last decade or so.

    I agree I'm stronging it, so lets...

    They didn't even have that. It was a dreadful choice. Hunt was a military planner at SHAEF and the last thing you need when you are going to be hacking watches on a regular basis is a screw down...

    When you get a movement which i built down to a very low price across the board it's just really hard to improve it. In this case, it's almost certainly cheaper to start off with a movement of...

    I've always wondered why Eddie didn't do a kit designed for a suitable Smiths movement. There are plenty of them in wrecked gold plated cases that would pop in a treat. A limited run of a few...

    Thanks. I'm currently discovering that there is far more interest in this question than I ever expected and from people who you wouldn't expect to care about such minutiae.

    Second.

    It was the second successful ascent. Admittedly it was the first successful decent, but there were reasons for that.

    It felt to me like most of the pain came from his gritted teeth rubbing together. If he really felt that who was first didn't matter, he really should have read the advertising that he released when...

    To be honest, I really haven't posted enough there for it not to be taking the mick. However, if you wanted to, feel free. I suspect it will get there as Oliver pointed them at me and he's always...

    I own that precise model with a red dial. It is one of my favourite watches.

    It has the Omega Cal.565 which I really think can stand toe to toe with any movement from any manufacture ever. Your...

    It gets better for a while, but it never stops being a faff and if you don't do it for a while it becomes a real faff again. On a good day fifteen minutes is a realistic target. Mind you, once you...

    They also release a mixture of faeces and some other foul thing that you either can or can't smell. I'm told it's genetic. Unlike grass snakes which release something that stinks for day and everyone...

    It allows the gun camera to record exactly when the guns are fired and for how long. I've got a dennison case for a Smiths one that I've been hoping to fill for about a decade.
