  1. Lugs with a difference.

    Mmmm, carbon fibre infills........:
  2. Thursday timepieces.

    I wore this one for my 5 yard walk to work, from my bedroom to the home office...:
  3. Watch / Car analogies .

    Not on my watch, Mister... (pun intended!)
  4. Watch / Car analogies .

    I think the word you're looking for, is "awesome" mate (for both the car and the watch ) Er, I'm going to say.... the car, because that is the whole point of this thread
  5. Watch / Car analogies .

    My car: And my closest watch to match it: I haven't got any intelligent or insightful reasons behind the selection, but it just seems "right" - I hope that's OK?
  6. My first custom modded Seiko

    I worry about very few things, and rubber straps isn't one of them
  7. My first custom modded Seiko

    Great to see a nicely modified watch that actually looks like it came from the factory like that, excellent stuff mate As far as the straps go, I think it looks best on the black leather flieger style. Personally, I would have put it on a rubber diver's style strap though
  8. 2 part polypropylene glue

    You could try searching for the name of the glue on t'internet, and see if any English instructions come up? Also, most things seem to be on YouTube these days, so it would be no surprise to find it on there somewhere. If it's 2 part, I'd say they would need mixing together first. One will probably be a hardener, and the other will be a resin, but that is only a guess.
  9. Wednesday Quartz~18 April.

    Ironically, not the brightest red in my collection... Now THIS is really eye-popping:
  10. Is less more?

    My taste has changed over the past few years, partly influenced by my eyesight, which has slowly got worse... I now look for simple 3 handers with bold contrasting hands, and generally not too much fine detail (with the odd exception, of course). Like a lot of people on here, I also avoid the recent trend of hands and dials that are the same colour. Not much point wearing a watch that can't be read at a glance IMHO. So, a few examples, starting with a couple of TW Steels, LESS: and MORE: And a couple from Bulova, LESS: and MORE: Obviously I love them all, that more or less goes without saying

    I'll see your eye-popping orange creation, and raise you a big chunk of red plastic:
  12. New hobby?

    No.
  13. Crystal refurb

    Excellent stuff, and an impressive result, well done Sir I've had some success with Polywatch on light scratches in the past, but never needed to use the more drastic wet and dry method. Your next stage should be to replace that horrible bracelet with a nice new strap mate....
