    I've been after a cheap analogue quartz "beater" to compliment my G Shock for a while now. I received a marketing email on Friday from H S Johnson with a sale offer of up to 80% off rrp so had a quick browse...found a nice looking grey dial piece with nice orange accents on a decent looking grey rubber strap.

    RRP was quoted at £149.99 (not sure how much weight you can put behind that) but with an extra 5% discount code and free delivery the watch arrived on Saturday morning at the bargain price of just £36.94

    For what I wanted it fits the bill perfectly...I'd have liked 100m w/r resistance and maybe a screw down crown but for £37 I'm not going to knock it. I think it looks great too...oh and they're sold out now so I guess others thought so too....

    Thanks. This is the older 41mm model. Not too bad.

    Been 4pm for probably a year now, due to Covid initially but now I think it's just an excuse. Will be interesting to see if it ever goes back to 1pm.

    It's 41mm no?

    Edit: I see the owner also says it is. I had no idea they'd increased it in more recent variants to 43mm, that seems a bit meh.

    To be a fair I was a little tongue in cheek as I know theyíve not had the 1pm guarantee during COVID .

    It arrived around 3pm...:

    Iíve had this for just over a week now, I wasnít sure about the size but itís the best 4 or 5 digit fit that Iíve tried, the spider dial is pretty cool when you can catch it.

    Nice watch, but it's a 40mm and you and 40mm Rolex don't tend to get on.

    I hope it works out for you, but wouldn't put any money on it

    Which colour is that metal.......because if it’s white, then the writing for ‘Yachtmaster’ should also be in white. Red features only for smaller rose gold, but the lighting can be tricky and hard to tell. With the white gold 42 version Rolex removed the red writing and changed it back to white. Presumably to be ‘monochrome’.
    Nerdy I know......and hard to capture. I just don’t know which version this is. With Rolex we all know that the use of ‘red’ writing can be significant, as I said. Nerdy.

    That's definitely not a white metal mate!

    The lighting can be an issue, here’s a 42mm in white. Doesn’t seem very different to me, tricky to capture well.


    To my eyes, the metal on this and the earlier ‘red writing’ are virtually indistiquishable. In a photo, not ‘real life’.

    Thanks guys, Iím really enjoying it.
    Yes, itís the 40mm Rose gold version. Lighting can be tricky inside but when the sun hits the 18ct gold it looks fab!

    I know that ones white gold from the pics because the text is white. Some clever chap on a watch forum taught me that!

    I see what you mean though, can be a bit misleading.

  39. #13489
    Much better size on the rubber as I suspected but the reflection is a bit strong, I'm not used to seeing my face when I look at a watch dead on.

    Not sure there is a better watch new for under £300, quartz or not.

    Absolute cow to photograph but a pleasing change from my usual divers.
    I seem to be having some luck with limited editions tucked in dealer safes at the moment.

    Birthday arrival, a while ago! Williams L panda chrono with Miyota Cal.6S21. 40mm. Nice and not very expensive. French.

    Delivered in a nice pouch.

    Nothing for ages and they come in 2s. After getting a grail on bank holiday I get the AD call randomly for a watch Iíve always been curious about. Iíve had numerous vintage datejusts from the 70s but never a modern 36mm.

    Took a bit of time getting used to it as I mainly wear 38/40mm watches now but itís a great all rounder. Love how low key it is.
