    Saw it this evening. Someone was clapping at the back of the cinema at the end. I can only imagine because it had finished and they could go home.

    Space horses! Not even Wedge Antilles could recover it from that

    I like those. Prefer the 556a with the 3/6/9 dial but both are handsome watches. 38mm case came up a bit small for me though

    Mrs Kato bought me this a few years ago but I rarely wear it. Got it out today and I’d forgotten what a handsome thing it is. Lovey domed sapphire and a clean dial
    Visodate

    Blimey – I just checked again. An Omega Speedmaster Professional with the hesalite dome now retails at MSRP of £4000 (!!!) That’s a full £1k more than I paid for mine 2.5 years-ish ago

    Hackett Watches will do it for £3295 still. I was going to px my quartz Seamaster but was advised to hold onto it

    We get issues Haix GSG9 at work and I find they size up really narrow and I can’t get on with they. Wear Salomon Quest 4D Forces and they’re much better. A bit warm in the summer though. Both waterproof

    Had a type B Laco before and sold it. Busy but interesting face.

    Tudor Ranger on leather is also something I fancy. Was bidding on one on eBay last month but missed out in the end

    PSA. Bit big for my tastes but the 44mm Geckota K-01 is half price over at Watch Gecko

    £149 down from £299
    clicky

    Flieger Klassik 40. Type A face. No date. No logo.

    Waiting to see if one pops up in the 25 days of Christmas sale

    Nice choice

    I keep toying with buying stainless/black face/black strap

    But then it’s £250 towards the Stowa that I really want…..

  • I like DeWalt and another vote for FFX

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    Nice price too. Tempting! How are you finding it? Seiko movement isn’t it?

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    That’s handsome Merak

  • Been an iPhone user for years and got seduced by Android. Bought a Samsung S9+ and was massively underwhelmed especially with the camera. Screen was nice though. Have it the wife and went back to iPhone

    I bank with Barclays and use Apple Pay a lot so I don’t carry a wallet at work. Barclays isn’t compatible with Android Pay and it really annoyed me

  • Kato replied to the topic Fenix 3 vs Apple Watch 5 in the forum Bike Forum 2 months ago

    I’ve had Fenix 3, Fenix 5 and 4 different versions Apple Watch. If you want a smart watch Apple wins, but it was rubbish for running and cycling I found.

    Google Apple Watch smoothing GPS tracks.

    I went back to the Fenix 5 and stuck with it. If you want a sports watch it’s a winner

    I use a 3 cup for one mug topped up with water but I like a string coffee. I also have a 6

    I meant the Stowa

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    I’m looking at one of those on eBay beej. He wants £800 for it. I’m toying with making an offer but not sure about the polished case. I prefer a brushed finish. It’s a really handsome watch though

    Looks a bit like the Dornbluth I’ll never be able to afford

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    2836-2. Every day a movement school day

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    Trying to decide between a Stowa Marine or Fleiger at the moment. Maybe I’ll end up with both!

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    There is something about the Tissot that looks cheap and I can’t put my finger on it. I have a Tissot Visodate with the silver dial and it’s a lovely thing. They’re worth looking at. Has a standard 2824 rather than a Powermatic. I know the Powermatic has a long power reserve but the lower best rate puts me off it

  • Kato replied to the topic Watches N+1… in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    The Seiko is handsome. I’d take that over the Tissot.
