  1. Our trusted dealers are called that for a reason. Should your watch get ‘lost’ in transit or confiscated by customs, most TD’s will reship it for you. Relax and think about something else as @Champsy said it’s Christmas and the postal services are rushed off their feet.
  2. I have had a gen Speedy Pro that I bought new about 4 years ago. I rarely wear it because I find it annoying to wind. I dislike the crown guards which interfere when winding the watch. I’m now considering trading it for a First Omega In Space which doesn’t have the crown guards. Has anyone experience of the FOIS or indeed the issue with the crown guards?

    What will be your next purchase?

    Now it a Rolex Explorer 2, but the earlier one - 16570 in white Well, until tomorrow when I may change my mind again. I do seem to be going through a Rolex phase again for the first time in years.
  4. The less patience you have the longer it takes it seems! It’s a lottery unfortunately, it can also get held up in customs too. Sometimes the tracking doesn’t update and whilst you’re thinking the watch is still on route to you, bingo, it arrives. I’d say anything from 2-4 weeks isn’t uncommon at this time of year. I’ve just had one arrive from the States in 4 days and that’s a record for me. The last one I had from China was around 2 weeks.

    Wristies - thread consolidation?

    Don’t let @Nanuq buy it. Just send it to me and I’ll kindly dispose of it for you. No need for the bossman to get his hands dirty. 🤣

    Wow, that looks like the set of a disaster movie. The main thing is you’re unharmed.
