  1. Fortis watches?

    Haven’t they filed for bankruptcy? If they are in financial difficulties this will affect the prices of their watches. Perhaps worth while keeping an eye open for heavy discounts? Can’t imagine that the company won’t be snapped up though.
  2. Good looking G-Shocks

    I wouldn’t want a G Shock to be pretty because then I’d care about it getting battered. I’ve had a couple of G Shocks and the only reason I haven’t still got them is I used to travel a lot and I lost them. I’ve got a solar Protrek which I’ve had for 15 years and it’s still going strong. And Proteks aren’t even as tough as G Shocks.
  3. Price Comparison

    I’m not sure about a comparison site purely for watches though Chrono24 or Watchfinder can give an idea. A good start for retail is camelcamelcamel which does an historical comparison of Amazon prices.
  4. Merry Christmas Everybody

    And to you, too
  5. Full lume dials

    Thanks- it appears that it’s been discontinued unfortunately. An internet search shows quite a bit of variety in design too. I have to say that the one you have is by far the most elegant.
  6. Full lume dials

    Ooh, that’s nice. I wasn’t aware of that Alpinist. What is it?
  7. Bulova heads up

    Ta for that
  8. Watches you just don't get.

    Patek Philippe Nautilus. Out of my range, mind, but don’t understand these when there are so many of their other products that are stunning.
  9. Advice

    Either of those may scratch the itch to get yourself something new and shiny but if you hold off a couple of days and do some digging on this forum, you may find that something more traditionally WIS (Seiko 5, Orient Mako for a couple of examples) floats your boat. I have noted that you’ve narrowed it down to two already, so you may have already done all the research but other than being chronos, I don’t see any similarities between your choices, so (and I may be wrong, so forgive me) it could be that there’s still more research to be done before you get to what you really want.
  10. Unfortunately this singlemindedness for one point of view/opinion is not just reserved for watches. For the people I know that are like that I think it may be to do with the sheer amount of information available nowadays; it’s just too much to balance all the pros and cons of something, so it’s kind of understandable that they pick a single, comfortable position. I’d love a Rolex (along with twenty other makes), though of course I always consider everything from every angle, as do most WIS. He sounds like a good bloke in every other way. Like my granny - she’s a grand old girl and a hoot but she is also slightly racist. I just have to steer the conversation sometimes! And she likes TAGs!
  11. I Want a Nice British Watch

    Found this: https://www.ogdenharrogate.co.uk/collections/vintage-watches/products/vintage-watch-3?variant=20777211393 No connection to seller, etc.
  12. I Want a Nice British Watch

    If you want something a bit out of the ordinary you could try to get hold of a Harwood. Bolton-born inventor of the automatic: http://www.harwood-watches.com/en/history/index.html
  13. Mechanical Alarm, I feel like a little boy in a sweet shop but those are stunning too. Thanks
  14. What make is this, please? It's a bit nice
  15. What WAS that watch?

    Good man! Thanks
