Aquatico Watches (Tritium)

I was looking at Tritium watches on-line, when I came across this brand, that I hadn't seen before. I really love the design and its Tritium lume is e...

Which Rolex next??

What do I go for next. Which watch should join my Explorer 36mm and Yacht Master 37mm as the next Rolex in my watch box? It has to be the right watch, rather than just a financial decision. All commen...

That’s a smashing collection for anyone, let alone a 20 yo.

It’s fine. It’s just to do with the hand stack positioning. A watch repairer can easily re-sit them an hour earlier if you prefer.

He now looks like a dodgy English teacher.

Eddie runs it like that as he can only ship 200 parcels a month and he can’t hold customer’s funds for more than a month. It’s nothing personal, but he’s limited by capacity. Yes, he’s also a stroppy Yorkshireman, but the watches are worth it. You just need to get your credit card details into the system. I believe that any purchase on a Shopify site will save your credit card data, to speed up future purchases. I have an Everest Expedition and a Monopusher. Both great watches. I didn’t but any more as I’m now looking to invest in more expensive watches, but you won’t regret buying a Smiths.

A SotC post needs to be done!!

Please do suggest some others.

All good points! These would be AD purchases (I don’t buy grey market). I have a 16.5 cm / 6.25” wrist. I may put the Sub on a NATO (Bond obviously 😉)
