  1. This made me laugh

    Agree with @Daveyboyz best to tell him sooner in case something can still be done.
  2. Well put @BlueKnight and thank you for your former service!
  3. Nice unique watch complete with the RCMP Police crest @BlueKnight & pictured alongside the standard issue RCMP sidearm. Thanks for sharing. No need for the insulting Sad Is this a watch forum or Gun Nuts 'R' Us? If you need to compensate for something lacking, see a doctor remark!
  4. Hi @Perlative Cernometer, Not exactly, just the 3.
  5. My Watches competition? = My Kids, Clocks, Scuba Diving, Cycling & Fishing. My Kids = Though having blown past 65 recently, I have 3 kids who I love dearly! They are 15, 13 & 10. Clocks = I have far too many... I think it is 7 tall-cases including a master clocking in tall case, half a dozen regulators, maybe half dozen or more Zaandams, various cuckoos, numerous Black forest wag on the wa' clocks, mantel clocks wall clocks, countless parts tools cases dials movements etc. And oh yeah, anyone need to time any pigeons? And no, I am not a watch or clock maker... Scuba = I gave up cold water diving so now only dive the rare times I get somewhere tropical Cycling = got to get back to cycling, gained about 2 stone 12 (40lbs for you non Brits) since my last PAINFUL crash. Fishing = Don't get fishing much any more either... It's a 2 hour drive to where I wade into the river to fish for Salmon & the last 2 times I went, after maybe 8-10 hours wading up to hip deep in heavy water I fell asleep driving home. Went off the road both times, luckily I didn't hit anything & managed to get back on the road but now I don't go any more until I can find a fishing partner...GOD I MISS FISHING! Watches = Oh yes, don't even get me started on watches... Help?...
  6. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    Love the dial on the quartz. Unfortunately, they are cracks on my Caravelle crystal so I will have to find a new one.
  7. Nice basic Rolex Sub or Omega Spacemaster Just dreamin...
  8. I once forgot to change to my Seiko 6105 (Apocalypse Now) instead of using my 6139 Pogue before going to the pool, & had no issues. Ergo, I began using the 6139 to time my laps in the pool for a few years. However, I finally used the Pogue one too many times in the pool... & then didn't dry it out soon enough. A rather expensive error in judgement....
  9. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    Cheers Mo! I found mine, but she's not a Timex after all. Same era though... Caravelle Automatic Waterproof N4 One of these days I"ll have to get a new crystal but for now she's ticking away nicely.
  10. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    Is the "Red Nebula" designation from Timex? I think I have a similar watch around here somewhere...
  11. Traser

    There is no excuse for the watch misting up every time you go out. The only time I ever have had a watch mist up is when I got water in it. Have you had the watch under water? If yours is brand new and misting up, then it either has a leak or there was moisture in it when it was assembled. From the response by Traser, I wouldn't touch one of their watches with a barge pole!
  12. Sindaco Chronograph

    Very unusual looking watch...
  13. Thanks. I have a similar bracelet where you have to pry up at the joint in the loop joining the links... see arrows
  14. Maybe post a pic anyway? Not all have arrows.
  15. Usually the removable links are near the clasp on both sides. Can you post a pic showing them?
