    Thanks, Toshi. That Royal Mail info's very helpful. And your Google skills are much better than mine!

    Thanks, everyone. I see I'm not alone with Italian post woes post-Brexit.

    Does anyone know how to troubleshoot International Track & Trace postage? I posted a parcel (clothing return) from the UK to Italy a month ago. It arrived in Italy after a couple of days. But the...

    Does anyone make titanium spring bars? I ask because even stainless steel can, eventually, rust if immersed in seawater enough (it's happened to me).

    I’m convinced the snobbishness is (has?) fading away. As CW was getting established, snootiness was to be expected. Initially, I was a Christopher Ward sceptic. But CW’s innovation and exceptional...

    Jean Rousseau

    How about a Jean Rousseau NATO? There are several Cordura colours, plus calf and even alligator (!) NATO straps.

    Exactly. I own some watches (from reputable non-Swatch brands) with ETA movements. They include everything from Steinhart to Oris, and I get them serviced every 5-6 years. What do you think their...

    That’s an incredible bargain! Both the Pelagos and C60 Elite 1000 were on my titanium diver list, and I found the C60 Elite indeed rivalled the Pelagos for quality. In the metal, the C60 Elite’s case...

    Uncertainty

    The monopoly corporation has won, unfortunately.



    Precisely. How many micro-brands had ETA movements? There’s got to be innumerable (non-Swatch) watches with ETA movements – what does their...

    Has anyone handled a non-steel (carbon or titanium) Doxa? The titanium models appear rare, and the carbon-cased Doxas seem pricey, so I’m curious what they’re like in reality.

    I looked long and hard at these very watches.

    In the eye of this beholder, the black ceramic is one of the most handsome Omega Seamasters. But its ceramic case means, inevitably, that it lacks a...

    Subscribed for updates.

    Why has Seiko started adding a cyclops to several models? The watches look better without a barnacle on the crystal (who likes a cyclops?).

    While the Sub had been THE iconic diver, it has – for many of us – tarnished its image. In many people’s eyes, Rolex has, unfortunately, gained negative connotations.

    If I’d spent £6k on Breitling's Avenger Hurricane (it has a breitlight® case), I’d be disappointed by the edges fraying over time!

    I agree on all counts. They approach 45mm in diameter and 15mm tall – doesn’t this sizing rule them out for many potential buyers? Why does Seiko make such a whopper? Despite liking big watches, even...
