  1. I'm not even going to post a pic on here because everyone must be getting sick of seeing it, but the Bulova "Davey Pee" offers plenty of bang for buck, especially at the price I paid
  2. The most I would ever spend on a watch would be around 500-ish quid, and even that is quite unlikely. Ironically, I've got more money now than I've ever had in my life, but I still wouldn't splash out more than that amount on a single piece. Sorry guys, they're just watches at the end of the day. Maybe I'm just not taking this hobby seriously enough?
  3. My most recent impulse buy was the now infamous Bulova "Davey Pee". I wasn't looking for a new watch at the time, and more importantly I didn't have any money in my PayPal watch fund to pay for it. However, there was a heads-up on here about a black friday deal, and at £160 it was just too good to miss: No regrets though, it's an outstanding watch and a definite keeper
  4. Ah, in that case the answer is no, nobody else does non-white lume apart from Tissot. Probably.
  5. It states in the advert: "This is NOT 'glow in the dark' paint.". Looks like it only glows under UV or blacklight, so not a lot of use in normal conditions... Nite watches use green, red, and blue illumination on the hands and hour markers. They are Tritium though, so that's cheating Citizen Orca features blue lume, which looks ultra cool. Or did you mean non white when not illuminated? In which case, ignore my comment, as the Orca is white in daylight, of course.
  6. Cheers mate
  7. I was also making a connection between USA and Manchester in my first guess, and V8 engines wasn't the obvious choice....
  8. I had to look it up as well, so Rob's not the only one who didn't get it. My first thought was it might be gun related...
  9. My criteria are: Is it quartz? Is it big? (minimum 40mm excluding crown) Is it comfortable to wear? Can I read the time easily? and finally.... It's definitely quartz, isn't it?
  10. Wet and windy here, so giving the Rotary Aquaspeed an outing today: This one was kindly donated to me by RWP a while ago, and I've just changed the original Aquaspeed strap for a nice Nixon branded one, and it has absolutely transformed the watch. The original was made of a fairly rigid plastic/resin and not very flexible. The Nixon is probably one of the best straps I've seen, made of really soft rubber, and even has a bit of stretch to it, so extremely comfortable to wear. It fits the Rotary's concealed lugs perfectly, as you can see here:
  11. Please don't put it on a Nato/Zulu/Rhino mate You've already said the bracelet is awesome, so just leave it alone and enjoy it. Oh, and post a wrist shot when you get time, it would be good to see how it looks when worn
  12. No worries mate, I've just had a look and there are a few in a bag labelled "Tiny Springs" PM me your address and I'll pop a few in the post for you to try.
  13. I think I might have a few of these in my spares box mate. I gave some away on here a while ago, but can't remember if I just sent them all to the member who needed them, or if I kept some. I'll have a look and get back to you if I can find 'em.
