    By coincidence I got a new IPad mini 5 today, and saw the option to upgrade to 15, but I think I am going to leave it for a week or two before I do that. I don’t use 90% of the stuff on it as it is,...

    Thanks for the find, it definitely seems to be the problem. IWC really need to put something in the manual about this, as I suspect it will catch many people out and they will get a lot of...

    I wound the watch anti-clockwise a few turns last night. It was very stiff in that direction, but it started running immediately, and did not stop all night. I think @EJL25 may have cracked it! I am...

    I have always thought the gearing on MTBs was too low speed for road use, so you have to pedal a lot more to reach the same speed compared to a hybrid. It is a bit like buying a 4 x 4 car and only...

    The watch stopped at 15:35 after being supposedly fully wound, so it ran for just over an hour.

    There is nothing in the manual about the winding direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise), and I...

    Thanks for all the great advice. I had assumed that two days on a watch winder would be enough to fully wind the watch, but I suppose I was wrong. I was thinking of selling the winder anyway, as I...

    Thanks. Regarding A, there is no power reserve indicator on this watch, so I don’t know when it is fully wound. The manual says to wind it 20 times to get it started, but does not say whether that is...

    IWC Portugieser problem - stopping overnight

    I recently bought a brand new Portugieser Automatic 40 (IWC 82200 Calibre), which supposedly has a 60 hour power reserve. However, I have noticed that once I take it off, it stops well within the 60...

    I ride a hybrid, and for me it is ideal for commuting on roads: the gearing is suitable for decent road speed (unlike MTBs), and the upright position is more comfortable with a better view (unlike...

    I tend to agree with this sentiment (he says as he posts on a social media web-site). On balance, I think the Internet as a whole is a net loss for humanity.

    I agree. Despite this I would have bought the 1926 if I hadn’t directly compared it to the much more expensive IWC Portugieser.

    I tried the Tudor 1926 and a IWC Portugieser IW358304 side by side as they are superficially quite similar - white/silver dial, Arabic numerals, blue hands and numerals. In my opinion, the IWC wins...

    Many years ago we bought a “lightweight” alpaca wool duvet. Boy, was that thing hot! We had to return it, it was just too thermally efficient.

    I am pretty sure my identity was stolen via the public information on directors that is available from Companies House. It has not caught up with the security quagmire of the modern Internet.
