    I've got the mark 1 5002-01. It's a scaled down IWC B-Uhr homage essentially. IIRC the WW2 B-Uhr was 55mm & worn on the outside of a flying jacket or on the ankle. It needed to be big for that. I...

    I've got this Marathon SAR which I believe is from the first contract (October 2001). I like the size & it's solid build quality. A proper tool watch.

    I’d have thought that the non-lumed nuclear submarine version would be rarer.

    Haha, yeah...but I love the smell of Waxoyl in the morning!

    Further to the OP....I've got a Welsh Springer Spaniel but there's no way I'd let it in my Land Rover. It's too nice for that. It only...

    Riders of fixed will typically say that they ride a 72 inch gear (or whatever). This dates back to the ‘Penny Farthing’ or ‘Ordinary’ cycling days when the gear size or gear inch was described as...

    I was fortunate enough to get hold of this one a while back. Same NATO stock number as a Milsub but rarer!

    I rode a 25 mile Time Trial on a 72” fixed gear once. That’s 48x18. I got round in 58m 40s. Average cadence was around 120 iirc (2 full turn of the cranks per second). Once was enough.

    I've already done all the things that you said. A 3 year wait for the hip replacement on the NHS (or whatever it proves to be) might as well not be a waiting list for me. I booked my hip replacement...

    You could try your local dental school if you're feeling lucky.

    ….and if my patient needs 2 bridges I wouldn’t get paid any extra money and I’d have to pay another £400 lab bill, use more materials & spend more surgery time etc. It’s not good business.

    No, I'd get my UDA value of £21.50 (ish) x 12 = £258 & that's the lot. That's about £25 less than the patient actually pays. Out of that £258 I'd have to pay a £400 lab bill in this instance. So I'd...

    Correct. There are only 3 fees that you can be charged for a full course of NHS treatment:
