  1. I am still alive. I don't visit much because I can't afford to spend any more on reps. Still, I'm sure a decent Rolex Submariner could pull me back in. Who has the best Sub? Or 42mm PO?
  2. Happy Birthday Pugwash!

  3. I remember when the racist internet went spare at baked beans being Halal. It made me laugh because by default, any non-meat is halal. I don't like the way Halal meat is killed, but I don't object enough to complain.
  4. In case it's interesting. Reposted from http://www.rwgforum.net/topic/169361-thursday-24042014-wristies/
  5. This old seconds-at-six IWC Portochrono died, as all old seconds at six watches do, and I tried to revive it with graphite powder under the seconds wheel (there's got to be a tutorial on how to do this here somewhere) and it sort of almost worked … until it just died again. A year or three later, after it's been sitting in the back of my watch drawer, I got it out and put it (and the blue-handed one I have that was in the same condition) on my new watch winder and after a day, it was within a few seconds of bang on time. Both dead watches are running fine now apparently, and this one has been on my wrist for over a day. I don't know if leaving them alone for a stretch allowed the graphite to settle or something, but I have got two watches I thought were dead back in rotation. (edit to remove stupid LightRoom default watermarking oops)
  6. great AR on this one.
  7. Dammit, now I want a fish! Are they still as good as they were when they came out years ago or are there dodgy ones?
  8. You do know what mock-up means, right? After the Sonny Dickson episode, I'd be surprised if the leaks are as close this time. Also, remember in previous "leaks", there has been misinformation. Time will tell.
  9. Yeah, apart from they are not yet tooling up for the iPhone 6. The design isn't even finalised yet.
  10. I'll bet that the new iPhone will have a bigger screen, but not as big as the stupidly oversized android phones. However, I know for a fact there's a lot of [censored] going around the Chinese suppliers. The information is most definitely not coming from Apple; the Chinese are guessing again.
  11. Wednesday Wristies

    I pulled this old one out of the drawer. I really should get round to finishing it. Modded MBW 1610, gen crystal, crown, tube. ETA movement needs work, don't like the bezel, etc. Maybe someone can finish it … Edit: I am really, really pleased with the crown guards, though.
  12. I honestly can't remember. I'll search the forum archives from a long time ago and see if I can find my initial post about it.

  14. Where can I find one of those? All these new words I'll need to learn.
  15. It's hard to stay away. My brother visited from Bangkok and gave me his old, dead, seconds-at-six Daytona and it reminded me of here, so I popped back. I'm still looking at who has the best Sub, though. I sold my Noobmariner ages ago and would really like a replacement 16610.
