I do hate to ask

I normally am not that keen on "what should I buy" posts. I think just go get it if you like it. However I am a cash strapped watch person. I have bee...

At work no one ever notices my watch except the lady I sometimes sit next to when we are in the same office. I have known her 20 years and she is a go...

I have sold before and regretted it every time. I must add that they were not worth much anyway and, the most I got was £300 for an Oris that looking back would cost me £1000 plus to replace. Yours are in a different league to mine. Looking forward to seeing what you get.

lol many a debate about this by people more learned than me. I used to walk to school, on my own, about a mile each way when I was 6 ! Sorry about the long drive, I bet you felt every mile (I use audiobooks for those trips)

Great post. When we are young we do stupid things and get away with it somehow. Then, seeing how things turn out is part of the adventure. Some you win and some you lose. Now everything has to be considered. I love old cars and ones that somehow got to where it was going by hook or by crook. You have a quality watch, next step is when its trade in time for the H, buy a Honda or a Toyota 😂

commented on Do you have a Solar watch? If you do, which one? If not, why? ·

I have three solar. I think they are great, but I do like all the movements. I would love a spring drive but cannot afford one. I few hours in the sun and a 6 month charge is amazing for solar.

Well I have to bow to your superior taste as you do have a cat watch.😂

I went to have a butchers at the sale (Timex getting pricey!) the only one that took my fancy was the Van Gogh. This did inspire me as I would have designed a bit of ear on the hour hand so it reattaches to Vinny's noggin twice a day.

A bit of bling occasionally does no harm.

Annoying people with your watch.

I find watches have many uses, but for me annoying people is the one I get most pleasure from, usually it is my other half. I am lucky to own an old O...

So, first new watch of 2024. It's a Swatch obviously and is well out of my comfort zone. I have had a couple of Swatches in the past and tend to give...
