    C'mon - most people on here would rather die than dismantle their treasured watches! It might damage their resale value for one thing!

    Are mechanical watches less affected by extremely low (or high) temperatures? In my (limited) experiences very cold temps can do funny things to most mechanical & electrical things.

    Doesn't really answer the question it seems to ask ie why every explorer wears a mechanical watch - as opposed to a quartz! I can see some reason for it as you don't want the battery in your quartz...

    Just think.....you'll have to look at that God-awful colour scheme for the rest of your life and think 'Why the hell did I blow x00 on that bit of Ugly tat?'

    Now that sounds like a fun new game! Where do I sit on the various scales??? I am rather anti-Bremont, not anti CW but not a fan, and whilst I'm not anti-Rolex, I certainly detest all the BS that the...

    A new RFU Bremont

    Just had an e-mail about this 'limited edition' Bremont. So so looks, silly price. Its really hard to see any link between it and the RFU!
    But what amazes me is that 20 years ago, I had a 20 Lorus...

    Sorry - just noticed that someone else had already posted a link to the Kinetic Repairs guy. Still, that's two satisfied customers!

    Ditto, though I had the more trad Diver style one, that looked a little Rolexy (Jubilee style bracelet). I paid 325 if I remember. Of course, I was mightily pissed off after a couple of years as it...

    I think this is a very valid point. The seller may be concerned that the buyer could be doing some sort of fraud, but as buyers, how do we know that the seller isn't a fraud, or that we've not...

    No No No...that's the position you need to assume to get on a ROLEX AD waiting list - the OP is buying an Omega!

    Presumably not too dissimilar in principle to these Ground & Air source heat pumps we are being encouraged to fit instead of gas central heating boilers these days?

    But what sort of paint were you using??? I hope you were using something suitably expensive to splash on your Rolex - you'll get banned from Rolex ownership if you were using cheap stuff!

    Now whilst most 'normal' people will ask why you needed 5 watches, I have to ask why you needed 5 mobile phones!!!!

    Now there's an interesting area to study - the price of Rolex vs 'normal' watches! It may depend on how far you go back, but I don't think Rolex have ever been just another choice of watch for the...

    Yes...Rolex do sell real watches, but actually telling the time is far from the main aim of (most of) their customers!

    Personally, I think they are really a luxury business. For 99% of their buyers, the product is frankly immaterial - the cache of owning a Rolex is the important thing. Many owners probably only...

    But why didn't they rate it to 200m or even 300m then? As a practical point, how can you separate the effect of the super compressor tech from any other WR tech it has??
