  1. Yes it it. He’s now gone. Thank you.
  2. We all have issues. It’s a badge of honour in the Knitting circle.
  3. As with all these watches, it’s a case of “because I can”.
  4. Isn’t it great when the great unwashed belittle our hobby without knowing anything about it. This proves that fakes can be ‘better’ than gen. Hope it runs for another 20 years without issue.
  5. A great servant to the UK, the Commonwealth and the World. There will never be another like her. She worked up until the day she died and was respected globally.
  6. Some TD’s take PayPal
  7. Looks much better now. Well done.
  8. Okay this thread is going to be locked. If, for any reason someone has something to add then PM me and I’ll open it up.
  9. I’ll ask again, have you contacted a moderator on a forum to assist you. If not you are just trashing someone’s reputation. PM me the details and I’ll look into it.
  10. Firstly, welcome to the forums. You’re in contact with Andrew - what does he say? Have you contacted a moderator on any forum to assist you? I’m happy to help if you haven’t. PM me with the details and I’ll have a look and take it up with Andrew.
  11. Polywatch is what I’ve used before but metal polish will do the trick. You don’t need a Dremel, just a bit of cloth and a few minutes rubbing! It should look 100% better than it does now.
  12. And it was. The Grape is now on its way to its new owner. So, today is the Hublots turn.
  13. Maybe the last days of the Grape as it’s up for sale.
  14. I was talking to a watchsmith friend of mine in his shop recently and a he told me a story of a young guy who’d been in at the weekend. Apparently, the guy brought a watch in which he’d inherited from his grandfather. He asked the watchsmith if he could remove and reset the hands as the date was changing at the wrong time. Not a problem, my friend took the watch and booked it in as he’s was busy there and then. It was only when he looked at it later did he realise that it was out by exactly 12 hours! He had to try and explain to his customer that he’d not removed the hands but just reset it to the correct time…… he didn’t charge him naturally lol. I imagine that his customer was a bit red faced. Not sure if it was true, but he told it like it was.
  15. Happy traitors day to our friends across the pond. 😆
  16. Aren’t the reps ‘better’ than the gen? Given they have sapphire crystals rather than plastic? Or, so I’ve heard. 🤪
  17. Welcome back. Always good to see the ‘old’ names.
