  1. Thanks Roy. Seem to have copied the entire album but will try and fine tune a bit.
  2. I haven't but Flickr now copies and pastes directly onto the page anyway. Looks like the button linking the Gallery to the forums is missing so possibly a site settings issue?
  3. Yesterday's photo but also wearing the same today. Zenith el primero triple date moon phase chronograph ref 03.2091.410.
  4. Good choice. Looks like a WAF1113 as I have the same model which has been a solid performer for several years.
  5. Missing on Firefox, Edge and Chrome. Two PCs, a laptop and an Android phone. Was there before yesterday.
  6. Same as others have said. My Coaxial movement Seamaster with the 2500B movement can be hand wound in the first crown position and runs slightly off spec at - 5 secs per 24 hours. This is after eight years of ownership, several activity holidays and wear in rotation with other watches in my collection. Power reserve after a normal days activity is around 30 hours. If yours has been in the AD for a while it may take time to settle to your wearing pattern. An old watchmaker once advised me to wear any watch new or just serviced for two weeks on a daily basis. This was before modern movements but still sound advice in my opinion.
  7. Same here but I've usually managed to flip the worst drunken acquisitions
  8. My Dad collected watches but sadly suffered from Dementia in his last years and swapped most of the better ones for a load of silver spoons. To be fair, the spoons fetched a good amount after he died but not as interesting as the watches. I did inherit my Grandads 9ct Smiths deluxe and my Great Grandads Hamilton in rolled gold case though and pleased I can appreciate them.
  9. Well spotted. The movement is an ETA7750 and agree about the hands and dial. For some reason I keep reverting to this watch over several others I own and wonder if it is the layout etc which appeals to my subconscious somehow.
  10. Not exactly back to work as I've been retired for a year but wearing my Ollech and Wajs ID3066 chronograph today. By the way, Happy St George's day.
  11. Agree with this. Seems anyone can follow you on Instagram so like Facebook I keep my watches off those sites.
  12. Bet you can't wait Rog. I was in exactly the same position this time last year and can recommend retirement.
  13. Zenith rainbow flyback chronograph for Bank Holiday Monday.

    From the album: Daily wear

  15. Sunny again here in Devon so wearing the Steinhart Ocean GMT 39 mm today (and possibly for the rest of the weekend as it looks like an ideal sunshine watch.

  17. I'm not usually a fan of square or rectangular watches but that is really something special and a superb Patek to boot. Congratulations on obtaining it and hope you enjoy it.
  18. 20mm looking at my watches. In my vintage phase I used to file the edges of 20mm straps so they would squeeze fit 19mm lugs. This gave me more choice of straps and often gave a fuller looking result on the watch.
  19. My turn today. Only watch bracelets but already the question has been asked.
  20. Out with the local real ale society today so wearing my O and W chronograph.
