  1. Mate, you have already answered your own question there, just flog the Rolex and get the Merc - Sorted
  2. This is our 21 year old cat Gypsy, on a rare occasion when she's not asleep The look on her face says "You woke me up for THIS???"
  3. Worst... competition... ever!
  4. As others have said, if they asked Roy's permission and submitted a couple of watches for members to review, that would be fine. However, from what I have seen that almost never happens, and they just join the forum with the sole intention of getting free advertising. Sorry, but that is out of order, and totally goes against what this forum stands for. Apart from anything else, it's just plain rude and extremely disrespectful to Roy, who has put so much time and energy into this community. Personally I don't think there should be a separate section for them either, because that would only encourage more of the same behaviour. They should contribute towards the forum, and not just use it as a free advertising resource. Just my 2p worth, obviously.
  5. Blimey, there's some nice looking hardware on display today chaps, excellent stuff I decided to wear my favourite watch today, because I haven't worn it for a while: Still can't imagine ever owning anything better looking than this one, at any price
  6. Ah, I see what's going on here, you say it's not me but really.... it is me isn't it?
  7. This can only end one way................
  8. Oh my God, wait for it... It's me, isn't it?
  9. A recent pic of me doing what I love best, while, er, "working" in Austria:
  10. I'm a self employed technical illustrator, and I don't have a preferred daily watch, but my Bulova Precisionists are my favourites in the collection. If I had to pick a daily wearer though (and thankfully, I don't) it would probably be this T W Steel, which is surprisingly comfortable considering it's massive bulk:
  11. There you go Roy, I have corrected that for you. No need to thank me.
  12. Oh God, I hate these competitions - Why can't you just draw names out of a hat like a normal person? There's no way I'm going to spend hours trawling t'internet trying to find the answer to this one, so I'll just say it's either a heater knob from a car, or a volume knob from an amplifier/home cinema/stereo system. And... I'm out!
  13. Excellent stuff, and typical of the brilliant forum spirit, nice one Rob.
  14. Unless he was in Tignes last week that is pretty unlikely... For information, I only took one watch skiing, and that was the mighty Bulova Sea King.
  15. Next video release will follow shortly, snappily entitled "Tignes 2017 Limited Edition Director's Cut" or something like that
  16. Yeah, I know all that, I was just playing down my high probability of winning...
  17. Fossil for me today:
  18. We have a 21 year old cat, so my pic is likely to be an old cat sleeping next to a new watch - Hardly competition winning material mate
  19. Your home contents insurance should normally cover items away from the house as well, so might be worth a look at the terms of your policy when you get back home.
  20. Excellent stuff mate, and a very generous prize which I will do my best to win using my advanced photographic skills...
  21. Blimey Iceman, it looks like your autocorrect needs some work.... Congratulations on the 10K Rog, I thought in these situations it was customary to do a simple prize draw with names pulled out of the hat, which gives me an excellent chance of adding a Rotary Pilot Style Watch to my collection....
  22. Mate, you kindly gave that Ted Baker to me a while ago, and I have just passed it on to carlgulliver (I posted it to him today) as a "Pay-It-Forward" after I received a lovely Casio dress watch recently from graham1981. I love the way things go around in circles on here! Here it is on my wrist, just to prove it did go to me: It's a really nice watch actually, and the photos don't do it justice. The outer band which goes between all the numbers is a sort of mother of pearl effect, which hasn't been captured at all. Here's the Casio that prompted me passing on the Ted Baker:
  23. Excellent stuff, and a big improvement putting it on the rubber strap, nice one mate
  24. No problem mate, the Ted Baker quartz watch is yours - When I return from my well-earned skiing holiday, of course....
  25. Some of you will already know, I travel to Austria for one week every month to collect work, which is completed back in the UK. But what does that involve, and what exactly do I get up to while I'm there? I've put together a short 5 minute video to explain my typical working week. I've copied it to my DropBox, so hopefully this link will work: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7c2fd2q9glkhey4/Semmering 2017 Directors Cut.mp4?dl=0 If the link doesn't work, please let me know (I tried PhotoBucket, and that failed miserably...) Any feedback welcome, of course
