    An interesting idea but it turned out to be way off in my case, particularly at the lower end. Better to use your eyes, and a full length mirror as well as just looking at your wrist. A well sized...

    The main issue with decimalisation of the calendar is the 365 day year and the 29.5 day (on average) lunar month. Not that the moon is such an issue any more.

    People who's headlights are tinted slightly blue, but only out of the corner of your eye, so you think the police are behind you the whole time.

    Yes agreed, I was only pointing out that they already moved upmarket when they opened a boutique next to Harrods, followed by a pop up in Burlington Arcade. Nice to see a more permanent presence in...

    What, more upmarket than Knightsbridge? Nice to see anyway, and almost worryingly convenient due to the Elizabeth Line connection.

    The GS Omiwatari deserves to be in there somewhere. While light blue and very shiny watches aren't really for me, it looks great from both sides, and in person feels both special, and distinctly...

    That is the problem. It’s hard to define it, and we’d probably struggle to even prove that a human is sentient, we just know from our own direct experience that they are. But for me it’s interesting...

    I think he said we've been doing this for 30 years, which might explain it. Perhaps second generation in 'the game?'. Seems to know what he's talking about either way.
