  1. I hadn’t thought of that, thank you. I’m happy with it on leather at the moment. I could recase it using another mid-case. I have a later ceramic version which, by all accounts, will fit.
  2. It started out as a Bond era Seamaster. It’s actually a Closed Factory 40th Anniversary Bond Seamaster: 2537.80 (still has the caseback). I had Micky @SSTEEL swap the dial and hands. The dial is a gen 2230.50 that I had lying around. It was relumed in a white super luminova (originally it has a green hue). The handset was also relumed to match the dial, spare sword hands from a 2254.50 with a 45m Planet Ocean second hand cut down. The crystal is a Prof Steve 2xAR and the bezel is an early 42mm Planet Ocean. Running an ETA movement. It’s my favourite watch bar none. Micky assembled it years ago and it’s been flawless ever since. The only issue I have is the lug holes in the case. They are not in the right place and none of my bracelets fit correctly.
  3. Finally back on the wrist after a forced sabbatical.
  4. Very nice collection. I especially like the Datejust. This proves that I have too many watches!
  5. More traffic is what’s needed. The fun will come. To gain some attention I’ll post some photos of bobbies.
  6. Most of them and is is the best one for people and knowledge.
  7. Today’s nice black Seamaster Chronograph. Maybe up for sale soon.
  8. Actually, that’s not completely true. An investigation was carried out and both parties contacted for their version. Sorry you feel that it didn’t go in your favour. When members put lots of time and effort into helping others it doesn’t always lead to a success conclusion. Let’s not air our dirty laundry on this thread eh?
  9. I’ve had to check the date three times and I’m sure it’s December not April. It must be for the new LGBTQ+ Bond that will appear next.
  10. Yes, Adrian would be a good bet. Let me see if I can find his details. Or Rolie, would be a good bet too. PM me I have his no.
  11. Yes it it. He’s now gone. Thank you.
  12. We all have issues. It’s a badge of honour in the Knitting circle.
  13. As with all these watches, it’s a case of “because I can”.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
