  1. That doesn't make me feel any better mate....
  2. Only basic tinkering for me, changing batteries, swapping straps, and re-sizing bracelets. I've had a go at quartz module changes, but I usually struggle with refitting hands and/or resizing crown stems. I've had more disasters than successes I feel like I should be able to fit new crystals (I've got a press, currently only used for refitting pop-on case backs) but haven't got round to trying this out yet.
  3. Ouch, that hurts!
  4. Of course, how could I forget the most important bit....?
  5. Cheeky git - Although unfortunately not too far off...
  6. I had a birthday recently, and my Dad put 20 quid in with my card (bless him, he's 89 so I wish he wouldn't do it, even though he can afford to). Anyway, it almost goes without saying that I was going to use it to buy a watch, but the dilemma would be what can I get for £20 these days...? Just out of interest I looked on the watchshop.com website, did a quick search for all watches up to £20, and came up with this Sekonda at £19.99: I've seen it before in the duty free shop at Stansted Airport, so I knew what it was like in the flesh, and for the money I reckon it's a bargain. It arrived today, and I really like it. The watch head is translucent plastic, and the strap is soft rubber, so it's light as a feather and you can barely feel it's on when worn. A nice fun addition to the collection I think. Cheers Dad
  7. I don't always bother with that mate... Slightly ironic, the Precisionist movement should be accurate to within 10 secs per year, but they get changed twice a year anyway, and in my case not always exactly to the second
  8. Worst.... competition.... ever! What a bleedin' swizz, I woz robbed Congratulations to the winner, and thanks to mach for the generous gesture (even though the result was clearly rigged....)
  9. This ^ is the correct answer... Getting back on topic, I didn't get back home until yesterday afternoon, so my first to be changed to BST was this carbon fibre beauty that I'd been wearing since thursday: No wait - shock horror - it might not be "real" carbon fibre, so let's just say "carbon style" just to be on the safe side...........
  10. Nice one mate, congratulations on winning the Casio, but I thought that complete git bridgeman was king of the freebies these days....?
  11. It's Bulova for me, 6 in total, 5 of which are Precisionists
  12. Not a retirement watch, but a while ago I did manage to reunite a nurses watch with it's owner by doing a bit of detective work. I found it in an ebay joblot, and after I offered it up as a freebie on here someone suggested trying to find the person on the engraving. Full story here: A very satisfying outcome, she was absolutely delighted to get the watch back, and it showed the forum in a good light as well
  13. Oh yes, in that case I am definitely in! Congratulations on your 2000th post mate
