  1. Newly landed solar atomic G-shock GW-8100. Cheers Tim!
  2. Hammy on a Pav strap today.
  3. Green for St. Paddy...
  4. Chris Ward Trident, on an Eulit perlon. Damn, that's a comfy strap!
  5. Hammy Khaki for me.
  6. 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!
  7. I've worked at home as 101jr hasn't been well, which has meant I could swap between these three:
  8. NIce one H! My brother-in-law wears a Nautica, and I was impressed by the quality when I changed the battery for him.
  9. I bagged the 300m quartz version on TZ recently, very impressed with the quality.
  10. Downs: It's Lent, and I've given up booze... The guy who has my BB red has still not decided if he wants it yet... Ups: Spring is coming Two incoming (CW Trident and Hammy Khaki) are looking great The sale of the BB should give me some cash so splash... watch this space.
  11. I'm afraid I'm in the 'change it when I pick it up' group, except for the Everest which is dateless, and the G-shock which updates automatically.
  12. Do try the Pelagos- the Ti is very different to SS, and can feel quite odd. Not for everyone. I really like where Tudor are going at the moment, very much developing their own identity and coming out from beneath the long shadow cast by their parent company. Lovely watches, and a bit more unusual than your ubiquitous Omegas, TAGs and Rollies.
  13. I have this little green chap. My son chose it as my Father's day present last year, and it's a really nice one!
  14. In my thoughts, chap. A few years ago, I lost my family ring (was my Grandfather's wedding ring) at my mother-in-law's house. I think I took it off and put it down somewhere, and it just vanished. It turned up in a cupboard in the hallway, on the day she was moving out. Bizarre! These things do have a habit of just turning up! Fingers crossed for you...
  15. Fortune smiles- the bracelet from my PRS3 fits like a glove!
