my original post with the extreme denim was meant as a joke, which i hope you took it as... it isn't jealousy. Like I say I am sure it cost a lot and I actually like Hublot unlike the youtube watch channel guy... but denim is to me a bit of an odd finish on a watch. It's fine for me to not like it. You like it and that is also fine.

Nice bit of early evening lume on the 11-01 (the first is still by far the best iteration of the 11 IMHO by a country mile )

Do you have a thread on your RM's?

Think you own a few?

Stunning technical achievements. (and marketing for such a young brand)

Bit of a sentmental one, this. At the moment my 86 year old mother is recovering in a care home after a fall which broke her arm, not ideal as we can't even visit her at the moment.

So we've this opportunity to try and clear her house as she's a massive hoarder in an attempt to get it safer for her on her return.

Found this in a drawer belonging to my father who died in 1994 with the mankiest leather strap imaginable.

It must have been consigned to a drawer in the mid-70s when the new LCD/quartz watches came along but I always remembered this one as a kid. It stuck in my mind from about 1969/70 together with brown suits and orange shirts and my dad's friend's light blue Daimler 2.5 V8.
Probably some of my oldest memories.

Half an hour of cleaning, a new strap and it's been keeping perfect time. The scratches look worse in the pictures than they actually are.

Really chuffed to have found it, something to actually smile about at the moment. smile

Yeah, I know, I should have set the date...

Good memories as a bonus.

I find the availability nonsense around this brand a little off-putting, but I am a huge fan of the quality and that's a lovely colour to boot!

Decided to treat my self to a smart/hybrid watch, and to keep track of my steps.. I went for the Garmin Vivomove 3 Luxe, usual watch face with analogue hands when in stand by, it also has a couple of AMOLED screens behind the face, Stainless Steel case, with sapphire glass, so a nice feeling thing. It came with a milanese loop strap, which I didn't like, so purchased this dark brown leather strap instead.





The hands move around to acomodate to what it's showing.

A £5 tube of polywatch & a little elbow grease will have those scratches gone in no time.
