    Website problems

    Happy for the post to be moved, and I would have created it there in the first place if my navigation skills had allowed. Was all I could do to get a post in any forum, let alone the right one. I see it's moved :), didn't realise as I just clicked on a "show latest reply"notification without going through menu

    Website problems

    Glad to see it's not just me, which I had guessed as all other sites are loaded no problem
  3. TWF site appears as a set of menus for me, even if I change browser - totally unusable. Anybody else seeing the same or is it just me for some reason?
  4. Sell the oven - which at the end of the day cooks food, and wasn't designed to tell the time, unlike a watch

    Rolex Brochure

    Don't usually post links, but since you ask https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-vintage-Rolex-1016-Explorer-booklet-brochure-1963/222818112815?_trkparms=pageci%3Ac5c79043-110c-11e8-9a20-74dbd1807af9|parentrq%3A9145b07c1610aadc35a49141fff7b085|iid%3A1&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236

    Amazon and Prime

    Guess if you want the films and other media, then it MIGHT be good value, but to gain 'free' postage, it's definitely NOT (IMO) You should be able to tell them once that you want to opt out, and that be the end of if, but guess that's too utopian

    Rolex Brochure

    Now I know that anything Rolex related is over-priced expensive, but surely £800 for a single piece of folded card, AKA a Rolex brochure, (albeit from 1963) is just going one step too far, or have a totally missed the point of the Rolex phenomenon?

    Buying/selling watches with PayPal.

    I use https://transferwise.com/ For international bank payments - MUCH cheaper than via my bank. They basically take loads of transactions from one currency to another, and vice-versa, and then trade them all off against each other to avoid changing currencies, just move it locally to the right location. All adds up to a massive saving in fees. Takes a couple of days, but still not slow.

    The sad passing of Mr Levity

    Sorry to hear of your loss
  11. Friend of mine asked if I could help. Suspect I'm going to need for info, but anyway He has a mantle clock, with Westminster chimes and one of the springs has gone (not sure if it's the main spring for the winding or chiming mechanism). He's been quoted £500. a) Is that a reasonable cost b) Who would you recommend for clock repairs (preferably near Suffolk, as postage will be difficult and costly for a clock as opposed to a watch) What other info do I need to ask him for? Any help would be great

    text is grey rather than black - looks 'washed out'

    Surprise Hits

    You must have taken the pic 'mid tick' then, as it's not hitting the markers from what I can see! Nice watch though.
  14. Amazon logistics are great - don't knock them. Had several 'deliveries' that I couldn't find, so Amazon refund and I buy elsewhere, only to have the 'lost' or 'delivered (but who knows where to)' item turn up a few days later - win win for me!!

    A plea for help

    For me - PC using Firefox - Unless I scroll the page, when clicking a year half of the menu is off the bottom of the screen - use intelligent menus that detect their location and display upwards if necessary. Same issue with sub-menus too - Drop all the years in one line - I have 1920's at the end of line one, 1930's at the start of the second - Put the price next to headline details of watch. If I have a max budget, I don't want to reading details of a watch, to finally get to a price that I then don't want
