    in London for forty years. It’s all about money. That’s it. Live in, say, Primrose Hill. Delightful. If you are a millionaire. Being poor in London means bad everything…….don’t...

    That was unexpected. The Rolex dealer gave me a new gold link for an Oyster bracelet , it was a bit tight. Anyway, no charge..,and they cost £500 so that was decent.

    Restrained, unobtrusive, slim, monotone, never drawing attention to itself.

    Excellent challenge, and surprisingly difficult to get right. As mentioned, I’d support the early GS ‘grammar’ designs. A style which has remained timeless. The markets don’t welcome really classy,...

    I wear a mask, when required. If only to be polite. But the weird thing is I never see any real evidence that it makes a
    difference. Let’s see the figures, see what helps. My own favourite...

    Rolex have numbers all over their carefully regulated production. I don’t see it as a genuine issue. Which is why I took the sticker off and threw it away, mind you, I’m still peeling plastic from ...

    We sometimes like a nice bit of paranoia to stoke. These microchips peel off, so you could stick them in the wrong stock. Confusion, betrayal, instant history. And to think, it was once all peace and...

    Maybe it’s a whole new game…..green tab, cards, box…..microchipped. Imagine that…..your new watch is marked as ‘stock control’.

    My new watch had a small plastic patch , Dotted with a series of microchips, secured in a quiet way. The dealer left them on the side of the case. But it will peel off.

    I’ve just noticed that my new Rolex is equipped with a microchip. From the factory. Quite subtle really. Never seen it before, but has to be a good idea.

    This is one of those ‘how long is a piece of string’? Issues. My oyster bracelet fits fine, but I’m now spending a lot of money to add an extra link. Not strictly needed, but I think part of the...

    I see that as a modern classic…..an attempt by Rolex to get the basic shape slimmer (lugs) and the whole design better-looking. It will , I think, influence many designs. If only by finally getting...

    Expense is always a factor. But we have drifted a long way from ‘greats’ such as the integrated Nautilus and the Royal Oak. Straps and cases as one. All gone? Are watch cases and straps little to do...

    I found Omega NATO’s rather good, not least the excellent quality of finish and a lovely protective case. Should last for decades. Most watch ‘accessories’ overprice. That’s life.

    Today, I’m wearing a Daytona 116509. And what I’m doing is changing the cat litter. The cat is duly impressed. They’re all just watches, nothing more. And you can’t eat them (says Lucy).

    Yes, that sounds smack on to me…..the best clasps, often solid gold with a glide lock, are quite something. But you pay, and pay.
