  1. I'm bumping this thread for no better reason than that I really like what @nanuq wrote here.
  2. Thank you A, I saw the post and sent a PM, I think it can be a problem on a 'phone, that one doesn't always see post dates and other details.
  3. My heart bleeds for them and in all their righteous indignation about cheap inferior Chinese movements they quite forget to mention that the Swiss industry got started by making cheap, inferior copies of British movements. Once you get greedy there is always someone prepared to undercut you. Yes MOAB I flagged Fossil up some time ago as a company going places fast. Check the high street jewellers and they seem to have a good variety, but look into it a bit deeper and they are all Fossil. Relic, Abacus, Michele Watch & Now Coach NY, Skagen Denmark and Zodiac Watches. Fossil also makes licensed accessories for brands such as Adidas, Emporio Armani, Karl Lagerfeld, Michael Kors, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Burberry, DKNY, Diesel and Armani Exchange. Not bad for a company founded in 1984. They are also buying everything they can lay there hands on in the Swiss industry.
  4. I'm fortunate in that I have two houses and secondly that as far as my significant other is concerned the Subs and GMTs all look the same and I have three Panerai, the black one, the white one and one with funny little sub dials. Yep, one Rolex and three Pams, that's pretty much it love😇😇😂😂😂😂
  5. Fashion I suppose. I can understand a guy with 8 inch wrists might choose bigger watches but mostly I think it's just a fashion trend and might not last. I've always been happy with 36mm but I have girly wrists Have you seen Davison's, I understand they are not perfect but I rather like them.
  6. You did and the Mod Team are grateful. Thank you brother
  7. Sorry guys, I don't know how I missed this one, I've edited the post, please only use TD's for your own safety
  8. Let's take this one step at a time and see what actually happens. There is not much to be gained in worst case speculation at the moment. Josh is a good dealer and @Mike on a bike as well as @kernow have already offered to help. I have been watching this too. I think most likely it will take longer than expected (it already has), but will come good in the end.
  9. I think I already revealed my real name once in a thread and there are several members who have my full contact information. While obviously I don't want my personal details spread on the interweb, my name is Paul The allegation that I don't drink is a gross distortion of the truth. I rarely drink spirits, but good red wine has a remarkable tendency to evaporate near me. I'm still getting used to my new status, but obviously things will never be the same again
  10. Welcome to RWG. There are no stupid questions, it's just that it gets a bit tiresome when new guys ask basic questions without reading. You have been reading, so all is good.
  11. Thank you all for the kind words and support and for anyone who can't figure out why such a newcomer was chosen, well neither can I. When this idea was first put to me I was truly stunned. Aside from the great comradery, the champagne fountain, dancing girls and so forth, I see this not as being raised to the aristocracy, but as having become the servant of all.
  12. Please be aware this is the second time in a week that this member has solicited for people to send him watches. @nikki6 and I have had our eye on him for some time now.
  13. Welcome. There is plenty of love here for microbrands and Seikos. https://rwg.cc/classifieds/submit/?_new=1 Dont forget to read the rules and post a tagged picture, handwritten with the date, your username and RWG.cc
  14. "the only things one ever truly regrets in life are ones economies" money is over rated anyway
  15. Yes I noticed, it's very subtle, nice
  16. I think the less said about the software tools available the better. Also a leopard does not change it's spots, so if a guy has been banned for being abusive, any new ID will start to show the same behaviour again. If as in this case it is scamming, well for a start they won't have the community reputation and also again there is a "fingerprint" to what and how people post, so a good chance they will be outed by other members.
  17. Well it's your choice. I would keep the 6263 because I like the black bezels, but you might prefer to keep the 6239 so you have a black bezel and a steel one.
  18. I like it very much, especially the case. What is the red dot on the dial?
  19. That's really good to know S, I am and always have been a fan of Guns and Roses. I was a fan when they couldn't play for shit Steven Adler wasn't the most consistent drum machine, you need a jazz man for that. I watched them get tight and then fall apart and am still a fan. I always thought William Bruce Rose was a complete onanist and had the world's worst case of lead singer disease. It's good to hear another side. @cornerstone what makes you think I know what I'm talking about?
  20. I have always admired Slash for taking time to talk to fans. I understand that he personally reads every letter he is sent. In an industry where the high earners often treat the people who are ultimately paying them with total contempt, it's refreshing. Besides he is a Brit.
  21. And in the Church choir, but he doesn't talk about that much.
  22. Yep I've just cleared my debt as well
  23. I will say it again, the pictures never do these justice. However much you like it I guarantee it looks better in reality Want, want bad
  24. Baps on show, can't get more Scottish than that. God forbid anyone should have the temerity to try and butter one and eat it.
  25. I'm not surprised to hear this Sixx has always seemed the shy type to me
