  1. So many Speedmaster and I don't have one... and it makes me want one even more!
  2. Eating out is an expensive hobby I have... even something like a KFC can cost around the £10 mark!
  3. Craig! Congrats! You totally deserve that watch! as Mary Poppins once said... "A thing of beauty is a joy forever"
  4. I'm in two minds about this... When I was 18 the first thing I did was get a credit card and a few store cards and I bought myself New clothes, a digital camera, a holiday... all on plastic! It took me around 6 years to pay it all off! I reckon I've learnt from my mistakes. So I tend to save up to buy things these days (I have a credit card for contingencies, but I try not to use it) If you can't afford it... then you shouldn't really be buying it... Although I would consider a 0% finance (with a reasonable about of time to pay it off) If I was absolutely desperate for something... I know some people who are 26/27 in age, who have a Rolex/Hublot, drive a Range Rover, always have a new outfit on for the weekend, have flashy holidays etc... with very modest jobs... (Retail/Teacher) but still live in their parents box room, and can never afford to get a round in! (Posers!) But regarding watches, I would just keep on squirrelling money away here and there, keeping my beady eye open for the watch I wanted... If I have the cash when the right watch comes along... then it's meant to be! Rant over...
  5. Hope they've found the B@$#@*d who took it in the first place as well! Im very happy for you Kristy!
  6. My brother in law has a Bvlgari Assioma, (Black dialled/Chrono) it's a really nice watch, very well made, the strap feels solid, chrono hand sweeps super smoothly, incredible detail on the dial, something "a bit different" he got his at a very favourable price, it was around £1700 (10 years ago)
  7. There's two number threes at the 3'o clock position!
  8. Hi Stiver3 Welcome to the forum Both great options you have narrowed it down to there! It's a bit of a catch22 situation here... Clearly you've got your heart set the Breitling... But the rarity of it means it'll be difficult to get a hold of... Then the Omega, you could get hold of one easily, if you want to change the look, it will look amazing on its Original Bracelet/Mesh/Rubber/NATO/Leather! It's a very versatile watch (I used to own a 45.5mm)... I have a Breitling Superocean (Chrono) and in my opinion I feel the Breitling is a better watch (quality/time keeping/maintainence) which is why I still own it. My advice to you: 1) Try on another Breitling Superocean, and try on some Omega PO (42/45mm) or better still ask your friend to come with you/borrow his Breitling Superocean so you can compare then side by side and get a feel for them! 2) Go for what you want! Don't settle for second best... It's a fairly big purchase and there's nothing worse than thinking I've lost x amount on this watch, or I'm stuck with this now... hope this helps!
  9. When I was a kid... The Blue Peter pets were Boni/George/Kari/Okie... You got toys/prizes in your cereal... Odeon was £3.60 a ticket... Freddos were 10p... There was a rumour that if you drank too much "Sunny D" you'd turn orange!
  10. I am absolutely fascinated at the variety of jobs people have on here! I've never heard or thought of many of these jobs! I am a retail manager, I'd be lying if I said I loved it, but it pays the bills, and allows for a few horological treats now and again I don't have a "daily" watch really, I have a modest collection, and I tend to rotate, or change watch depending on the occasssion/outfit I suppose. At the moment I'm wearing a TW Steel
  11. Is that where "Lovely Jubbly" comes from? O_o
  12. There's no 20s option... so I classed myself as a baby
  13. I haven't been, but I've seen clips on TV and on YouTube, looks like there are mainly fakes/replicas and cheapies left over... (from what I've seen anyway...) Yes there were lots of games consoles/lawn mowers/mountain bikes too!
  14. I'd go with the Alpina personally, just because you don't see many of them around, looks substantial, and a lot of bang for your buck. (I have never owned or tried on any of the three you've suggested either!)
  15. If I leave it on, at least I know where it is when I wake up.
