  1. Unfortunately, it's not about proving "the lug damage has caused damage to the movement" but that the watch was "sold to you faulty and is not fit for purpose" from the October 2015 - Sales and Supply of goods act... Hope this helps... Product quality As with the Sale of Goods Act, under the Consumer Rights Act all products must be of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described. The rules also include digital content in this definition. So all products - whether physical or digital - must meet the following standards: Satisfactory quality Goods shouldn't be faulty or damaged when you receive them. You should ask what a reasonable person would consider satisfactory for the goods in question. For example, bargain-bucket products won’t be held to as high standards as luxury goods. Fit for purpose The goods should be fit for the purpose they are supplied for, as well as any specific purpose you made known to the retailer before you agreed to buy the goods. As described The goods supplied must match any description given to you, or any models or samples shown to you at the time of purchase. The first six months If you discover the fault within the first six months after buying the product, it is presumed to have been there since the time of purchase - unless the retailer can prove otherwise. During this time, it's up to the retailer to prove that the fault wasn't there when you bought it - it's not up to you to prove that it was. If an attempt at repair or replacement has failed, you have the right to reject the goods for a full refund or price reduction - if you wish to keep the product. The retailer can't make any deductions from your refund in the first six months following an unsuccessful attempt at repair or replacement. The only exception to this rule is motor vehicles, where the retailer may make a reasonable reduction for the use you've already had of the vehicle after the first 30 days. If you'd prefer to keep the goods in question, you can request an appropriate price reduction. Six months or more If a fault develops after the first six months, the burden is on you to prove that the product was faulty at the time of delivery. In practice, this may require some form of expert report, opinion or evidence of similar problems across the product range. You have six years to take a claim to the small claims court for faulty goods in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and five years in Scotland. This doesn't mean that a product has to last six years - just that you have this length of time in which to make a claim if a retailer refuses to repair or replace a faulty product.
  2. Trusted vintage watch sites ???

    Agreed! If you find one let us know!
  3. A guy I work with was complaining about his Aquaracer, how it keeps stopping when he doesn't wear it for a day or so... (Mate it's an automatic watch... you need to keep wearing it) One of my best mates recently received a re-isssue Tag Carrera Chrono from his dad, he was complaining how it stops if he doesn't wear it in a day or so, and he had the chrono running and didn't realise it was a stopwatch function... I told him by constantly having it running will run out the power reserve quicker, and you can also manually wind the watch to help keep it ticking.. anyway I suggested that he should stop the chrono... he was going to wait until all of the dials lined up until zero... I had to show him that the lower pusher resets the chronograph, (not change the date, like he thought) bless.
  4. What Rollie is this?

    Not yet... lol
  5. What Rollie is this?

    I hate to admit it... but I always check out the watches on commuters/colleagues too
  6. Thank you to @Davey P it's really appreciated! Basically I have fond memories of a local Odeon cinema as a child/teen, I spent many hours watching classics there... unfortunately the Odeon closed down in 2006, and it was left to rot over the next 8 years, when the council then gave the "green light" to pull it down and build flats... I have always had an interest in cinema and arcitecture... A few months ago I was looking on the Modernist Britain website, and saw lots of "technical drawings?" in particular there are many cinemas listed on the site... (check it out!) http://www.modernistbritain.co.uk/ I was a huge fan of the style of drawing... and I happened to stumble upon a post where Davey had put a link to his website, after having a look, I had the brainwave of getting in touch with him, regarding this commission of my local Odeon (which I have so many fond memories of) Davey had a look through the website, and managed to beautifully replicate this for me... http://i1005.photobucket.com/albums/af174/jizzle87/Odeon Cheltenham A3 version - YELLOW_zpsvleszgxn.jpg I am so chuffed with this commission! It looks amazing, and also this is (probably) the only one in the world! I can not wait to get it printed professionally, mounted and framed, I'm also going to get a copy for my best mate! the TW Steel is an awesome watch, unfortunately it wasn't getting a huge amount of wrist time from me, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to trade it for something I've wanted and probably won't get another chance to get... Thank you so much to Davey for the commission! You're a top man! Also thank you to Roy for creating such an amazing community which brings so many people together!
  7. New one

    Adrian, Congratulations! Looks superb!
  8. Advice needed on vintage Seamaster

    Go with your gut feeling...
  9. It depends on the person and their finances/situation IMO... A mate of mine who was strapped for cash (Student) still went ahead and paid £180 for an "official" strap from Tissot, when he could have got the same look (without Tissot branding of course) for around £40! Each to their own...
  10. How old

    16 here
  11. Pizza or a Speedmaster?

    I hate having reality checks... but sometimes you need to just sit down and work it out... Why not buy in frozen pizza from now on...
  12. Just wondering if anyone else was going to the one over this weekend? 28/29/30 July - London Olympia I'm going on Saturday, a friend of mine is meeting Pamela Anderson, another is going for Benedict Cumberbatch.
  13. I like Gary Lineker, not sure about the Hublot though, it doesn't suit him IMO...
  14. Sale Ends Sunday

    I think the DFS sales finishes Sunday too...
