  1. Well worth the money (+£2 postage) if not the claimed £24.95. Always great service from Heinnie Haynes. I've stopped buying knives since I realised I only really use them to open other knife purchases! Cheers. Gary
  2. Just ordered.....

    I think my local bus company drivers are all issued with one-handed watches to follow their random number generated timetables!
  3. Just ordered.....

    I've got one and really like it. You wouldn't use it to be sure to catch the 6:51 but for most time requirements it's easy enough to read. Of course they're just normal watches with an extended hour hand and no minute hand? Gary
  4. No love for Ollech & Wajs ?

    http://www.ow-watch.com/en Welcome to the forum. Cheers Gary
  5. No love for Ollech & Wajs ?

    I've love my orange O&W ocean master (Unitas 6948). A few years ago, when I was looking for some "old" watch catalogues etc, I wrote to Albert Wajs and he very kindly sent me a bunch of old stock O&W leaflets. I now see: "Mr. Albert Wajs has passed on Ollech & Wajs to a watch enthusiast, customer and collector of the brand for two decades. A limited series commemorating the birth of OW in 1956 is in preparation. This model, developed with parts from the former inventory of Mr. Wajs, is currently being assembled in Switzerland. Subsequently, a new OW range, inspired by the most iconic references of the 60s, will be available from the spring of 2018." I'm really keen on the 50s/60s/70s styling of O&W watches and will be interested to see the new range. Cheers Gary
  6. Poljot 3133 chronograph

    Just now seen this thread. Fantastic. Amazing skills and knowledge. Really interesting. Well done on a great job. Cheers Gary
  7. My understanding is the same as yours. You can transfer part or all of non-current year ISAs to a new provider. Current year investments can only be transferred as a whole (100% of money paid in during the current year). Transfers don't count towards annual ISA investment limits. https://www.gov.uk/individual-savings-accounts/transferring-your-isa Cheers Gary
  8. Long term investment

    I agree that that it's not worth £1.7k; but that's the Amazon price (though Amazon prices go up/down like a yo-yo). £1,550 at Jura watches. £499 is a steal. Cheers Gary
  9. Long term investment

    https://www.tkmaxx.com/uk/en/christmas/christmas-gifts/gifts-for-the-gentleman/cognac-leather-automatic-watch/p/76224761 TKMaxx (online) have the Fortis Terrestris Hedonist 901.20.11.L.08 for £499. They claim a £1,302 RRP but it's (currently) £1,700 via Amazon and a similar price from other retailers. It has the fantastic ETA 2895-2 automatic movement. This is a bargain. Cheers. Gary
  10. At the risk of repeating myself.....

    Important to note of course that the council tax band property values, in England, relate to April 1991 prices (2003 for Wales). The equivalent of the 1991 £320k band H would be a very big pile outside London (and a vastly over-priced decent house in London). Cheers Gary
  11. Mark E Smith.

    Some really nice tributes for him - Jeremy Vine and Jim Moir (Vic Reeves) among many others. I don't think I realised that Mark Radcliffe (of Mark and Lard) used to be in The Fall. Cheers Gary
  12. I bought a Crosley Cruiser suitcase turntable from Asda which was a steal of a price at £19.50. £69+ at HMV. I never used it and sold it on eBay because I had nowhere in the house I could keep it.
  13. Bush Classic Retro Turntable down to £14.99 at Argos. Bush isn't B&O; but this must be a decent not much more than a tenner's worth? Cheers Gary
  14. Which make of watch would you buy.

    TKMaxx website. CCCP "Brown Automatic Analogue Watch" £48. Nice Slava 2427 russian movement. Quite dressy. Cheers Gary
  15. "Fortis leather strap" in Amazon's search will bring these up. Cheers Gary
