    She is a carer for her 93 year old Mother and is terrified of passing anything on, so we live in a sterile house, which is fine by me.

    Out of interest, you should see the colour of the water when she finishes or changes it, shows how much muck and dust is on stuff on supermarket shelves.

    Wallasey Runner, we are living the same life. My wife does exactly the same. She's been doing for a little while now, and frankly if she stopped, I would continue, even though I thought this was unnecessary to begin with. It's a bonkers world we are currently in. But looking at the rising infections today, it appears so easy to catch. Stay safe all.

    By the way Martyn I’m wearing and enjoying the Breitling during lockdown!

    I have no idea. Maybe today is now the new normal? I hypothesise it would be when the virus mutates to something less virulent - could take a few cycles. Meanwhile - I’ll do what I need to, to keep safe. (I don’t plan to stay home for the rest of my life either.)

    Meanwhile Martyn, all this jolly banter about Covid-19 has brought you another day closer to opening the package! As I tell my grandson... “only one more sleep...”!

    I was going to post, “Did anyone notice the date of this original post”, but it may not go down too well

    (actually it’s still in quarantine).

    I would take it out the box.

    put the box in my shed along with everything inside the box except the watch and strap which I would wash.

    I did this for my leatherman micra,space pen and CWC watch that arrived recently.

    even letters I leave in the sunshine of the conservatoire window for hours before I open them,read them wash my hands again then dont touch the letters again for days.

    other stuff I leave out the back in the wind for as long as I can.

    You shouldn't leave the house ever if it's your attitude to risk as you are more likely to die tripping and banging your head.

    no one will criticise you for a belt and braces approach,the fact you cant see it means its the best way.



    Is there a risk of being infected by groceries and packages that we have delivered?
    Marcus: It’s a low risk, but it’s possible that if someone is delivering a package to your house and they are sick, that may be a route for transmission. I would recommend that any time something new comes into your household, be conscious of washing your hands after handling it.

    Iwasaki: The [virus’s] stability is pretty good on the cardboard. Once you get those packages, open them, quickly throw away the cardboard, wash your hands, and try to avoid touching your face. Take any measures that you can to minimize contact from the surface of the package to your face.

    Is it possible the contents of a package could have been contaminated by whoever packed it?
    Iwasaki: There’s definitely a possibility of contamination, but it’s much more likely that the outer cardboard itself will come into contact with a lot more people than what’s inside. And if it takes days to get to your home, whatever virus that was inside will be deactivated already.

    Let's hope for the sake of their families Bally and in the case of Hood, his dental patients too, they don't contract and pass on the virus.

    Taking thorough precautions at this time is common sense and shouldn't be disparaged.

    I guess you counted the 2000+ that have already died. You and others do not know my personal circumstances.

    Seems to have been some extreme views against public health recommendations. And yes - I’m not leaving the house except for essential reasons.

    The watch is open and on wrist - very nice it is too. Functions perfectly. Thank you Eddie and seller.

    Hope to do a specific review of this military edition without inscription some time soon.

    That went pretty quick, enjoy the watch, looks like a great example.

  23. #73
    Very nice Martyn, not your first, as I seem to remember you having an example on the bracelet before. So you felt the need for a reacquaintance. I've never had one but have been very close a number of times. Enjoy it, as I'm sure you will.

    BTW here's a chart from today's Times - for anyone who's doubtful.

    Overreacting to circumstances can be as damaging as not taking sensible precautions.
    There is no evidence of catching Covid from opening letters or parcels and guidance is to wash your hands after opening them.
    What if the staff in supermarkets or logistical staff were to take theoretical risks of Covid transmission to heart.You would have no deliveries,food in the shops,no pharmacy supplies etc. It is important people keep things in perspective.
    Your comment on my dental patients isn't too valid as there is zero dentistry going on in practices,it is emergency treatment only at dedicated regional centres.
    To the OP i apologise if my original response was a bit curt but hopefully we can all keep things in perspective.

    My view in this is i personally would of opened and it washed and then washed my hands.
    But! Who the hell are we to judge how others react in these times? There is no over reaction, do you know the OPs personal circumstances? Do you know what his local connections are? Maybe there is someone he knows that is at risk?
    Everyone is doing what they feel is correct and as long as this includes following the restrictions then good luck to them and stay safe!

    Nice watch!

    Well done for holding fire on opening it and for ignoring those who think they know better than you.

    May be. It’s a silly hobby. I think this is perhaps the third MK2 I’ve owned now. I’m not selling this one
