    Funny, but amongst my lot in the armed forces, the Bell and Ross go out the window, as do G Shocks etc. Everyone swears by the F91W, the older the better. And this is a fine, fine example.

    I went in all in Project Cars 2 and a Logitech G29 rig. I got bored after literally a few days and flogged it all.

    My research told me this was the set up to go for, but it just wasn't for me.

    As above, Talk Photography.

    I've bought and sold cameras, lenses and all manner of accessories on there without issue. I am wary of eBay.
