  1. Wednesday 13th Dec watches

    This one for me this morning, and will someone please turn the rain off ! ....
  2. The sad passing of Mr Levity

    I'd like to add my name to the many here that will miss your dad Emily and I wish you and the family my very best hope for the future.
  3. Speedmaster Pro

    There's lots of info here on the early Moonwatches which will kick you off on your research ... http://www.chronomaddox.com/cm3articles.html#Moonwatch ... but with Omega's liking for producing so many 'Limited Editions' of the Moonwatch it's a huge subject these days as Padders says. A standard 1861, non 'special eddition' would be your cheapest option I would think these days ad it's a great watch, any variation on that tends to add a few bob.. :-)
  4. Sunday Newbies ~ made after 1990.

    This one for me today .....
  9. I Know... Not a Lot of Interest Here, but...

    I'm a huge fan of the original moonwatch and usually don't take much notice of the more modern versions of the Speedmaster but that one is truly gorgeous ! I'm jealous as hell ! .... I'm glad that the total eclipse came up to expectations too, I've seen a couple now and there is something unexpectedly sombering about them, a small reminder of our place in the universe....
  10. R.I.P. Keith Rose (Tiktok)

    Such a shame, Keith was the 'go to' chap when it came to bits and pieces for vintage G-Shocks, over the years I've bought many parts from him and he was always so helpful. It's niche suppliers like him that are always sorely missed when they aren't around and I for one will be sad at his passing and extremely grateful for his help when he was here. ...
  11. Selling the forum

    Roy has done an amazing job recently of invigorating the forum and bringing it bang up to date, so I'm not surprised at all that someone wants to turn it into a commercial platform and I for one would like to thank Roy profusely for resisting the temptation for now. This has and always will be my first log on point in the mornings and to visit throughout the day, even when I don't post, and I for one would hate to see it's core ethic change. So, thanks yet again Roy, it's a great place to be and long may that continue...
  12. No love for Ollech & Wajs ?

    I've had a few O&W but the one that I really like is this one...
  13. Now if you're going to have a god, Thor's your chap, at least you get a brilliant light show for the money you bung in the collection plate.
  14. Friday 18th

    This one for me today.....
  15. As the supposed 95% don't actually follow the same god, goddesses or gods, and don't actually worry whether theirs is real, it's not surprising they wouldn't also care much either about the difference in watch movements. The more discriminating minority prefers to know the truth.... (For the sake of balance, the 95% figure is also incorrect )
