Watches


#221

I reckon you’ve dodged a bullet there. International shipping of watches is a nightmare IME.

Keep your powder dry for something more local.

It would be illegal for him, whereas if you flew in it would be illegal for you


#223

That’s what I just said…:thinking:


#224

Spooky you should say that - i’m going to look at one in Bishop’s Stortford today!


#225

Don’t forget it will be an hour different to the one in Switzerland.


#226

#227

No. Just NO.


#228

Amazing craftsmanship there, but a bit over the top for me.


#229

Yeah, its all kinds of wrong, but interesting video anyway.


#230

Saw this on the same page and well worth watching all the way through, he machines a pinion post down to 0.08 mm and makes every part of the watch by hand.


#231

Thanks for that Chris, probably the longest thing I’ve ever watched on YouTube.

I wish I had a quarter of his talent.


#232

After a couple of weeks making my mind up and looking, finally took the plunge!


#233

Very nice :+1:

Now try not to smash the crystal in the next couple of weeks :smile:


#234

That’s adequate Jim :heart_eyes:


#235

It’s similar to the one I was going to get from the Swiss dealer, only the power reserve version. Less busy with the colours on the dial :+1:

The place I bought it is slightly nearer - Bishop’s Stortford :smile:


#236

And you put it on the wrong arm?


#237

No, I put it on the right arm :rofl:


#238

Lefty is, err, besty.


#239

I appreciate that most blokes wear a watch on their left arm, but I’ve always worn mine on the right, fuck knows why :thinking:

I’m actually right handed, but strangely, use my left hand for popular lakeside activities :grin:

Basically, because you’re a cunt.
