  1. I've already got one Rog. Might even stick it on when I go out for the match later. Hopefully the mighty blue boys will give me the present I'm after..away day derby win and three more points!
  2. No today's the day Rog, I'm just too lazy to take a pic today!!
  3. Fussy Little Devil.

    The `Seiko 5 is a very good call. Its a shame divers are out of the frame as I'm sure an Invicta would fit the bill. Maybe not this one tho…He might never forgive you! Invicta 25106.. Invicta 24489.. Invicta 7039..A little less sub and no Disney characters! A bit more of a retro vibe from Orient. 40mm and £66 before duty. FEM70004W.. Different day/date placement and this one is £71 FEM70001W
  4. Birthday watch on my birthday! Keeping the Sunday divers vibe going.
  5. New arrivals :-)

    Update… The Ray is now on another Orient leather strap. I think it's an improvement. And the obligatory lume shot
  6. New Arrival

    Thats nice! I love the textured dial. In fact I think it would sit nice in this thread!
  7. Dual at Dawn - Seiko v Bulova

    That's all just sweep p*rn right there… I've got a Precisionist but I'd love a Spring Drive. I don't see finances allowing that anytime soon so it might have to be another Bulova in the mean time
  8. Feeling a bit of Orient love of late so while window shopping I found this Ray Raven II in stock. The price was right so I hit the button. I don't think I'll be keeping it on the stock bracelet; rattly clasp and a bit cheap feeling but at this price point it's perfectly acceptable I guess. Excuse the smudged crystal... With my birthday on the horizon my folks said they'd get me a watch! Happy days! So I chose the Orient Mako II in blue. I've seen lots of the Pepsi bezel ones but not as many of the all blue. Classier I think. I had to wait for them to come back in stock but as soon as they did I snapped one up. Arrived just in time as it turns out! I'd already got my Dad an Orient Bauhaus Bambino for christmas and was on the look out for something for my Mum. She's got a little silver Sekonda that she loves - "It's light and comfy and I can read it" - So I went for something similar in design and size but in gold instead. I think she'll approve. It's got more than a passing resemblance to a certain Swiss brand but it's clearly not; either way it won't matter to her! Made In Japan, sapphire crystal and an automatic movement. Even the bracelet looks decent quality with solid links/split pins. Not bad for under £100 duty paid and delivered.

    Nothing myself as yet. I'm looking to get into a spot of tinkering so I've got some tools en route from the web. Maybe start with something like a Seiko 5 etc. I'm aiming for items that are working but tatty for now. At least if I bugger something up that's inexpensive it won't be the end of the world!
  10. Fossil

    From the article I posted t'other day.. Fossil, Inc. is a publicly held company based in Richardson, Texas. It is a power on the fashion-watch scene, posting sales of $3.26 billion in 2013, 77 percent of them from watches, mostly fashion watches. Fossil makes watches under its own brand names and those of licensors. Its most recent acquisition was Skagen, purchased in 2012. While most of the Fossil Group’s movements are Japanese quartz, Fossil has recently made forays into the Swiss-made market, including the introduction of Fossil Swiss, a line of Fossil watches with quartz and mechanical movements produced by the group’s subsidiaries in Switzerland’s Canton Ticino. In 2014 the group added a Swiss-made line to the Emporio Armani brand. It also introduced a licensed watch brand under the name of fashion designer Tory Burch. FOSSIL GROUP (USA)Fossil, Relic, Michele, Zodiac, Skagen, Adidas*, Burberry*, Diesel*, DKNY*, Michael Kors*, Tory Burch*, Marc Jacobs*, Emporio Armani*, Emporio Armani Swiss Made*, Armani Exchange*, Karl Lagerfeld* * Watches are produced under a license agreement with the brand owner.** The company is a joint venture between the group and the brand.
  11. Obscure brands

    Weren't they something to do with the news?
  12. Seiko Overload

    Why stop at one (hundred)?
  13. Yeah it's a bit rough. Maybe that's what the originals were like? But you're right, not a great advertisement!
  14. Moe than a passing hint of the Seiko Turtle case.. No bad thing I guess and its oozing retro style and charm. If the price is right I can see one of these joining my Precisionist chrono.
  15. I came across this article and though it might be of some benefit to fellow members. It's possibly slightly out of date but a handy resource all the same. Apologies if this is all common knowledge already https://www.watchtime.com/featured/who-owns-what-a-guide-to-the-watch-groups/
