  1. Watch Nevers

    I agree with this one: - don't remove a case back if you don't have the proper tools to put it back on Unless you want an unscheduled tool purchase...
  2. I use do dive at university, and went down to about 30m. Sadly back then, I didn't really know much about watches, so bought a quartz 'Sea&Sea' branded, with a Seiko movement (probably a bit like an Apeks). It did the job, though, as I didn't drown or get the bends.
  3. £600 - What should I buy?

    With that kind of cash, he could buy both and have enough for a weekend in Blackpool!
  4. £600 - What should I buy?

    This is an outrage! He should by the Hamilton Khaki auto on the sales section, which is £10 cheaper than the iPad, and auto.
  5. CHr Ward sale.

    Just to say, I have an old old logo CW Trident 300 quartz, and I have been so impressed with the quality. Bezel click and the bracelet clasp are the best I've encountered this side of Omega.
  6. I tend to take off any metal bracelets when I'm at a keyboard, as it swirlies the clasp horribly.

    Hammy Khaki for me.
  15. Date window

    I used to really dislike dates that weren't at 2, 6 or 9, but I've mellowed now, and it no longer bothers me (in fact, I have a CW Trident with the date at the position shown above). I think that is chosen as it means all of the cardinal markers (ie 3, 6, 9, 12) can match and the watch is balanced. Below 4 seems quite common, as again, it doesn't interfere with that marker- not an issue for the CW, but definitely for the Spork, which uses this location to great effect I think, and very discretely. I'm a bit undecided about the cyclops- I've had a couple of Rollies that had them, but they are so part of the Rolex look that they were ok. That said, these days I would prefer a Sea Dweller to a Sub, for that reason. One thing I do not like is date windows that don't match the colour of the dial. Not so bad if your dial is yellow or orange, but white on black/ black on white? No thanks!
