    Agreed, that was a great interview. 80s gal and proud!

    They were well worn and a bit scruffy. Good to see 😉

    Nice, That’s using an expedition case.

    Timex do lots of themed watches (including other Snoopy ones) but they mostly use the Weekender case it seems.

    Just watched 14 Peaks on Netflix. What an incredible feat. Noticed that Bremont was one of the main sponsors so putting this up to celebrate.

    It’s a good watch, impressive, the Netflix docu I mean. I’m not sure about bremont, I’ve not seen them up close

    My local watch shop has them. I don’t know much about the movements etc. but they certainly look tidy.

    I have that exact same Bulova watch, it’s a great dress watch.
    I bought it on the back of this review, although I’m not sure I paid that much for it..:

    Good luck, I hope you find one!

    Looks like I got the omega just in time, the price went up almost 5% last week

    Buy some more, they’re a good investment? That’s how I’ll rationalise/justify mine when it’s time for the big reveal… 😲 Its stablemates have all done well to extremely well.

    Rolys look to have been a really good place to stick some spare wonga. I had a chum who had ‘a few’ unworn in a safe… He’ll be happy as a porcine in the excrement now… 🤪

    As a normal person I can’t get a Rolex. I’d a could, then everyone could, and they wouldn’t be an investment.

    Aye it’s crazy isn’t it? I remember when all you needed was the substantial wedge and you could walk into a jewellers and they’d fawn all over you as you made your choice…

    How times have changed.

    i have a collection but last night was considering adding to it…
    everyday watch is a G-Shock GA400. i’ve got another G=Shock and a Casio Solar Tough knocking about too. recently restored an Oakley D2 watch after finally managing to source a replacement strap all the way from Oz.
    my dress watches include a Raymond Weil, an Emporio Armani, and a Panerai Ferrari edition. i did have a Rado but i sold it a while back.
    thinking i might invest in another G-Shock (i fancy a metal one) or a Tag Heur…wife might kill me over the second one though!

    Got one of these coming

    Couldn’t justify spending on a Speedy at the moment but picked up a Lunar Pilot with the old style logo for a decent price. I know it’s a big one but it if it proves too big I’ll be able to flip it for more than I paid so no great loss

    52mm lug to lug……

    What’s the 2?2 kHz indication about?

    Normal quartz watches run at 32kHz. This runs at 262 kHz so should be more accurate.

    You watch people keeping an eye out for the watches stolen from Mark Cavendish? With all your expertise you might well glean some info?
    Just a thought…

    I understood he had a couple of Richard mille. A bit beyond my price range, even from a bloke down the pub

    I don’t know if that moonwatch Bulova above has the same quartz movement (Accutron) mentioned a page ago, but running at that speed, the second hand doesn’t click every second, but sweeps like an automatic movement…

    I really like those Bulovas, I’ve almost bought one several times and probably will at some point.

    Edit – there’s an interesting SE of the Bulova as well it turns out:

    Any serial modifiers here? I’m after a dive bezel insert 40mm diameter and flat, not sloped. All the flat ones seem to be too small, and the 40mm ones sloped 🙁

    I sometimes mix Cornflakes with Coco Pops. Does that count? 🙂

    Premier Icon igm

    Nah. That’s just mixing not modifying.

    Now if you’d injected each Coco Pop with Nutella…

    it is a big one. The case is no bigger than my Turtle but it’s very long in the lugs. Probably at the limit of what I can comfortably wear so avoid if you’ve skinny wrists

    Supplied NATO is not great as it makes an already big watch sit up higher so it’s on the strap off my flieger until a new one arrives

    Handsome thing though and as a space geek I love the history behind it.  I like it so it will stay, at least until I can afford a Speedy! Which at the rate the price increases seem to coming around will be never at this rate….

    Premier Icon IvanDobski

    I wouldn’t bother with the Speedy, might have been the first watch in space or whatever but it was also the first watch to fail in space as well – stick with something with a history of reliability. 🙂

    I’m thinking of picking one of these up. The strap will be a matching rubber strap, not the leather one.

    Which dial colour do you prefer?

    Black is classier I know but the blue is different…

    blue

    black

    Black

    I knew that didn’t sound right even when I wrote it, hence the edited in “or whatever” to try and buy me some wriggle room!
