Can use the fagliano leather strap now

Mine came on a black croc strap with a JL buckle.
I have a dark brown one on it now.
The normal buckle is more of a faff to do up than a deployant but is much less bulky, so I find it nicer to wear.
Must get mine out, I haven’t worn it since I stopped travelling 15 years ago and it is very comfortable to wear.

For the first week I kept pressing the crown so the hands flipped to 10:10

Doesn’t take much to entertain me :joy:

This is nice, I think it’s an original instead of “fagliano designed” and manufactured by JLC. They make leather polo boots so I guess it’s a nice connection.

Feel free to suggest straps, leaning on a darker brown distressed leather or alacantra at the moment. I preferred the 16mm deployant from the other watch as it was a nice taper. The 20-18 seems pretty chunky for such a slender watch

Anyone had any dealngs with BQ watches watford? Good, bad, indifferent.

Done the usual diligence via google, just looking to see if anyone has first hand experience of them.

Thanks.

Some new U50 offerings from Sinn. Liking the S L full face lume.

They have been all over the internet for years with Spencer Dryer (the owner) on loads of youtube watch channels.
I have never seen anything negative posted but never dealt with them myself

Want, but considering my U50 has never been deeper than the bottom of a hot tub I’m not sure 5000m is really necessary.

Historically a mixed bag. Went through phases of selling ‘afterset’ fake dials and bezels around 10-15 years ago.

Their standard practice was to go to the big jewellery trade shows and sell at near market value to jewellers and suggested a retail price for them in their window a grand over normal market value.

At this time most were not serviced if they ticked and if serviced would be a mix bag of real or aftermarket parts.

My last dealings with them was around 3-4 years ago, so plenty could have changed in that time.

I’ve always felt that if I’m that deep in water then my watch stopping is the least of my problems.

There was a case some years ago when a body was found in water and the date and time the Rolex Sub stopped less the power reserve was used to estimate a time of death

The wearer must have been delighted.

It certainly helped the police and the coroner

Quite fancy a JLC Atmos for the lounge. Usually they have to deliver and set it up because lol yodel good luck

Definitely worth paying the premium for a serviced one with a guarantee like that one.

I have had three over the years, love the slow pace of them and they are really accurate when properly set up. Just expect to pay the same amount on a service in 15-20 years unless something goes wrong

If only we had a mantlepiece… :thinking:

Always fancied an Atmos, just always something more pressing to pay for. Really clever bit of tech - closest thing to a mechanical perpetual-motion machine out there, and a lot of clockmaking for the asking, used.


I have a brand-new Carrara marble mantleshelf - would just need either letting-in to a suitable wall, or of course, a couple of brackets.
