    This. Easy to kid ourselves that our watches are investments. Most Rolex, Patek, AP and FP Journe have all appreciated massively in recent times but this tide could easily turn. Buy what you like...

    I've actually just sold mine. Absolutely cracking watch but it's not getting worn so it had to go. It was the right decision but I'm already missing it (despite it sitting in the watch box for the...

    Absolutely this. Chrono24 may give a ball park figure too but asking prices tend to be way north of selling prices lately.

    They look great but the size might be pushing it for most male wrists. I'm no 'big watch facist' but my 37mm SBGX061 is just about ok on my 7 inch wrists so 34mm is likely to be too small in...

    My girlfriend was in San Francisco last week. She found the Rolex AD and got quite excited as there were rows and rows of gents sports models in the window. After speaking to a sales assistant it...

    I actually think that entry level 9F quartz is the sweet spot for Grand Seiko. The tech in these things is incredible. Just in case you haven't seen this, there's a great Hodinkee write up here:...

    Great choice. I have it's older brother the 061. Perfect daily wearer. It gains less than 2 seconds before I have change it due to BST.

    I surprised myself by moving towards larger watches. I'd always dismissed anything over 40mm but after wearing a Mark18 for a while (40mm but wears bigger due to tall lugs and thin bezel) I went to a...

    We and the OP are the initiated though! Both great watches that I'd be keeping.

    Move the Smiths to a 'second tier' box. I have a 'beater collection' that gets used daily when I'm out and about and likely to be in situations where I don't want to have an expensive watch on.

    Thanks Paul. I will do as you suggest next week ( I have a run of gigs so will not be wearing the watch until after the weekend). Do you know if there is a resting position where the 1861 loses most...

    UPDATE: it now appears to be +3 seconds over 24hrs worn on wrist for most of the day and stored crown down over night. The other data I got was for an unworn watch stored crown up for 24hrs so it's...

    That's what I thought. Will keep an eye then get in touch with Omega if timekeeping doesn't improve.

    Interesting, I hadn't heard of a 'settling in period'. I have a brand new 1861 Speedy and it appears to be racing well outside of spec. Am still tracking results as its early days but it looks to be...

    Thanks. It goes mental when near speakers but not so much when hovering above the laptop. If I rest the phone on the centre of the laptop where the speaker is it goes into the red though.

    Thanks. There's no discernable difference in reading when I bring the watch close to the device so I guess that suggests it's not magnetised.

    Can I asked what app you used? Suspect one of mine may be magnetised so would be good to check.

    Finally added a Speedy to my collection. Can't believe how well this wears for a 42mm watch. It manages to actually feel slim too.

    I had the same conversation with myself. The 3861 is definitely a step up. Omega Metas cert calibres are phenomenal in terms of accuracy plus I like the anti magnetic quality. That said, I prefer the...

    I just measured my wrist again and it's 18cm which is a tad over 7 inches, plus my wrist gets bigger in the mornings. In terms of what is a good fit, I like the bracelet tight but obviously there's a...

    It's 'just about ok' right now for my 18 cm wrists but my wrists get bigger in the mornings. Time will tell. I do hope it's not going to be a problem but if it is I'll probably seek out the clasp...
