    Sorry I can’t offer specific advice but this reminds me of my Dad a few years ago who got really worried about numbness and pains in his hands. He went to Harley Street as he was convinced he had MS...

    A fair point - I guess the essence of a g shock is as a proper ‘beater’ that can withstand nearly anything you can throw at it. They are ugly and utilitarian (I must admit to liking the ‘classic’...

    I used to pair animal straps with the plastic cased Tag Heuer F1’s back in the 90’s. I remember the watches were £79 with a fibreglass case, £99 with steel. I had an orange one and a yellow one be I...
