    Lot of mentions of the big chains. But there is another way......use of local independents. Especially out off-the largest cities. These ‘family’ type jewellers can be nicer to deal with. And tend to...

    I’ve had two CP2s, lovely watch, real class. I wouldn’t mind another one. In terms of history, I seem to remember that they were worn by ‘starfighter’ pilots. Not the luckiest bunch in aviation...

    Interesting that in Wimms latest monthly thread, AP scores very low....two mentions against 100 for Rolex, ranking with the likes of Corum. Whether this tells us much about AP sales, as against TZ...

    As someone just said ‘pure marketing waffle.’ It’s the same process as people marching around in track suits and ‘trainers’ and driving big SUVs around urban areas. All a triumph for marketing...

    I’m just another ordinary owner of a Rolex. I don’t understand the scale of hostility. In truth, many owners of older models must do very well financially. Without the sheer power and stability of...

    Pretty relentless collecting over all those years......how do you view your attitude to watch ? (I don’t think ‘disinterested’ would fit the bill.)

    Fair enough....it’s obviously a personal choice and plenty of buyers go for the bracelet (I believe). But I can’t escape the visual impression that the Speedmaster ‘sits’ more naturally on a NATO....

    The new Speedmaster does tempt me, it seems a lot of very fine watch for the money, these days. However , try as I might, I can’t get on with the metal bracelet. Somehow, they look too big for the...

    It’s an old watch. We can’t know the full history of all this. Rolex surely have the right to set conditions, after all, no-one has to accept.
    Personally, I’d just use a good independent and not...

    Useful....
    Look at the lugs. The 42 lugs are so much slimmer, less ‘blocky’. This was a crucial factor for me. Because the case is also slim (same depth as a Daytona) the sense of bulk is minimised.

    I assume that strictly limited supply is crucial to the long-term reputation (and value) of this model. In some ways, the new standard Speedmaster offers a superior spec at half the price...but it’s...
