    Don’t look back, don’t ever look back........big mistake to try and recapture what you’ve let go especially at eye- watering prices. You sold it for a good reason.

    But we implicitly do that with most of our (non watch ) purchases thesedays.........we have very limited choice.

    Expensive ‘ceramic’ coating vs stone chipping........only one winner!

    I rarely bother cleaning my everyday car, especially in winter, it’s a futile waste of time. Rinse it with the hosepipe to...

    Be very careful!

    Sicura made some very cheap pin- pallet dive- style watches in the 60s, I had the dubious privilege of fixing a water- damaged example that held great sentimental value to the...

    Definitely smoke and mirrors, I started smelling bullshit 20+ years ago with car care products. At some point in the recent past, cleaning and polishing your car was transformed into ‘detailing’ and...

    If you’re prepared to pay significantly over list price your desire to own the watch has to be high enough to accept that the watch could end up being worth far less than you’ve paid, it’s a mistake...

    My dad had one in the 60s, it was used when parked in a 40mph zone at night as an alternative to leaving sidelights on. He worked as an insurance agent and did lots of short runs on an evening, lots...

    I was being flippant with the last comment, the money doesn’t really matter. In hindsight getting married in it was a mistake.....the choice of watch not the marriage!

    At the risk of sounding sentimental I’ve got some nice aluminium cooking pots that I’m quite attached to.......sad but true!

    Nah.....I got married in it and (more importantly) its going up in value so I guess it’ll stay where it is.

    As a confirmed vintage fan the price / availability of new watch models doesn’t affect me directly, but until recently I had a mixture of old and newer watches and was keen to own a couple of the...

    I have a similar decision to make, I’m on the verge of having my kitchen refurbished and the choice of hob has yet to be agreed. Traditionally I prefer gas for the hob and electric for the oven but...

    I have to smile when folks refer to ‘residual value’ when discussing watches, there was a time when folks bought watches because they liked them and planned to keep them. Nowadays some folks seem to...

    Maybe the answer is to stop wanting?

    I jumped off the Rolex roundabout a long while ago and I don’t miss it, owning a ‘desirable’ Rolex doesn’t improve your life and I doubt whether it endears...

    Fine wet and dry paper wrapped around a small flat rubber block is the best way to restore an acrylic crystal, work along the length of deep scratches and always keep the paper wet. Mask the watch...

    Demagnetising is the first thing to try, but there are several other reasons for a watch to run 1 min/ day fast. Find someone local who can put it on a timegrapher and see what’s going on. Ideally,...
