    Sd43 is the perfect modern Rolex, IMHO anyway. Other opinions are available

    Would really like to try a 43mm SD on my wrist, but good luck with that, I guess.

    This arrived just now, and for £85, I'm thrilled. Bremont leather strap with curved end pieces. Can't think of a better watch for the wedge.

    Fantastic value! People talk about the 'field watch' and this really looks like a great suggestion.

    Thanks, it's hard to justify an Explorer I for 60x the price!

    I bought Unclealec's Delvina Super-compressor.

    From the SC photo I hadn't realised the dial was blue, but that turned out to be a bonus as I like blue dials.

    I wasn't convinced that the black and yellow strap matched it well, so, as I often do when a watch arrives with me, I trawled UK watch straps for a more appropriate looking (to me) strap.

    I found a nice Navy blue padded Fluco strap, with white stitching and Nick was as quick at despatching as ever and it arrived today (after ordering yesterday afternoon).

    I think it looks great and changes the look of the watch quite a bit, bringing out the blue of the dial far more.

    Fair play! Iíve had many iterations of seamaster and this newest model is pretty much perfect and half the price of most of the competition. I might add the white dial at some point

    I would have to agree - at 42mm, the size is pretty much perfect for me, whilst the step up in quality since the last models is really noticeable. I love the ceramic dial and more modern etched wave - not seen the white dial yet, but I can see it being part of the collection in the future.

    Not a new watch but a strap. Rubber B on the 116660 really changes the feel of it, love how the strap fits to the lugs.

    It's better than I expected, given how dark it is, but it's neither especially bright nor terribly long-lasting: I walk the dogs for the second time after dark, and it was just legible after about 50 minutes of that.

    They've reverted to the old logo after all the interwb hissy-fits I believe, hence why so many models are available very cheaply at the mo.

    He's just a silly old soak who makes many imprudent posts and has been unduly obnoxious to numerous forum members. Best to ignore although not always easy.

    It's nice to see some new arrivals in these difficult times and I love the 'Stealth-dinnerplate' description!

    Ta. Kind of funny TBH, as I've been astoundingly poor at selling anything thus far!

    Hi all, long time forum lurker, occasional poster.

    Couple of new additions for me to add to my trusty Speedy which triples the size of my collection :)

    Seiko Orange Monster Gen 1
    Breitling Top Time 2006 c. 1969-1970

    Love them both.

    Stay safe.

    Precista PRS-82. My recent WTB didn’t elicit a response so I ordered one direct from Eddie last Sunday afternoon and it arrived today. I’d obtained one of the ETA 2873 versions as a trade late last year and ended up trading it shortly thereafter. I should have given it more time. Anyhow, I regretted letting it go.

    The PRS-82 is a handsome watch that is solid and unpretentious. It’s also a lot of watch for £425. That’ll get you one of the non-date Hamilton mechanicals that I also happen to like (but don’t own), but not too much else. Or an entry level Seiko dive watch. Other than that you’re looking at fashion brands.

    I’ve been looking at the MKII Paradive for a while, which is not too dissimilar to the PRS-82. Except that it’s a fair deal more expensive. $895 probably amounts to not much short of £900 when the poor exchange rate and VAT is taken into account.

    This new arrival joins my CWC RN dive watch (quartz and non-date) and Omega FOIS. I do like a non-date black dial.
