  1. Walking into that high end dealers

    fabulous summary....
  2. Walking into that high end dealers

    in my experience ... there is no "looking the part" , with the exception of a couple of Major cities in the UK ( most millionaires I know are scruff bags )..... And if you want worse than the UK , Oslo in Norway is ridiculous..... if you are not perfectly manicured you get spoken to like dirt in Watch shops and Louis Vuitton..
  3. Just a thought. Nano Screen protection?

    yep , they are superb..... not used them on a watch, but perfect for the job....
  4. A kind of blue…

    Certinas tend to have light bracelets.... good shout for the one you went for....
  5. moped gangs in london

    yep a targeted attack. My friend Matt who collects Rolex watches was targeted twice by muggers.... the second time at his home and he had CCTV evidence..... but you can guess what the response from the Police was.....
  6. moped gangs in london

    Watch snatchers and muggers after watches tend to be much more savvy in places other than London... The reason is pretty simple... the motive for people trying to steal in the first place is not really the same the world over.
  7. Strapped for cash...

    If you contact Francis and Gaye , they will be able to get you the genuine straps at that price....
  8. moped gangs in london

    London is so awash with fake watches.... anyone is fine wearing anything really... unless you have been targeted by a known... ( i.e. another Londoner ) ... I would be more worried in Napoli or some areas of Paris to be honest....
  9. Strapped for cash...

    Longines genuine straps for their watches are £30.... Hamilton and Longines are both owned by Swatch. Both produce very ordinary straps imo.... maybe go for a decent German leather strap... !?!? [ £120 for a Hamilton strap is a bit much ]
  10. Best Rolex justification ever.....

    with Wrench on this,,, try on Tudors... I tried on Rolex and Tudor.. went for the Tudor..... [ only had to sell my 3rd testicle ]
  11. Best Rolex justification ever.....

    yep dinks loose the value... but thats part of the journey... it give the watch character....
  12. Best Rolex justification ever.....

    nonsense... I paid £2400ish 10 years ago for a Breitling and within a year had put a couple of minor dinks in it... its part of its "journey" ... you need to embrace watch wearing... once you get passed that fear , its hugely enjoyable.... you will be fine. One day own an expensive watch , maybe bash it slightly...... and just enjoy it... life is too short..... watches need war wounds , it defines them.... especially nice ones.
  13. When a Fossil watch is not a Fossil watch

    was privileged to have watched him in many live games 89-97 ... and met him a few times ... a fabulous guy , and he wore a modest watch actually ( from memory a low end TAG ) , drove a modest car ... etc etc ... but was a pure genius with a football...
  14. When a Fossil watch is not a Fossil watch

    yep , thought so......
  15. When a Fossil watch is not a Fossil watch

    thats because you probably never saw Matt Le Tissier Play football.....
