    Not my usual fare but I really like that.

    You can do better, not as flash as Ben Taylorís Daytona or whatever he is bought... he does like to be a bit flash, but remember he is a scouser sorry Ben, but you did buy an Aston Martin lol

    Please don't tempt me! Although i have already managed to scratch it slightly. But i was catching my 5yo daughter from falling off some rocks at Bude beach.

    It did come with a nice presentation stand though.

    Shame to here this after reading the great tale of you getting hold of it.

    Be alright, as Ash says I just need to take the missus out more. I've made a promise to myself I'll wear it every time I take the 911 out which on current form should be at least twice a year

    Lol,

    It's very close to my work watch...

    Can't complain for 20 quid off eBay, and the glow in the dark paint on the dial is really very good

    I really wish I hadn't started this.

    I seriously like this watch, but unless I won the lottery could never afford one.

    Technically guys, if you want a super accurate timepiece on your wrist, get a smart watch. They get their time from GPS. No quartz or mechanical can compete

    But Arry, think about the thought, design and craftsmanship that goes into making a smart watch accurate

    Serious Question : Why is the accuracy of a watch important except as a measure of the workmanship that's gone into the watch ?

    I don't wear a wristwatch but I always imagined you guys were wearing them as small pieces of art and/or workmanship and as a fashion statement.

    Even with my phone being accurate to less than a second, I still translate and round what I read to the nearest 15 minutes. 11:41 becomes quarter to twelve a.m. or "Fcuk! Where did my morning go ?!"

    Of course it is jewellery

    Do you think I used to wear an Apple
    Watch when I used to go out?

    I have started wearing a watch again because it is easier to just lift your wrist than pull your phone out to check the time lol

    Feels genuinely weird going out of the house without a watch on.

    I haven't worn a watch for 3 weeks
