I'm not sure, but I think it was Doofus that got me into magrette. I own two and they're two of my favorites.

I’ve started wearing my watches again, after not doing so for a good few years

If I wanted to venture into the world of NATO straps for this one, would I need new spring bars as well? I’ve never tried changing a strap myself before, but have been inspired to try by this forum

If the spring bars in that strap can be removed from it, then you can use them with a Nato.

I absolutely love the stepped dial on this, the raised numerals, and the fact that the white bit of the dial looks like high grade card. It's very different.

On leather today.
Not my favourite, but it was included in the box.

Really like these. Fancy the 38mm for my next purchase. Got a khaki field mechanical. Very much a fan of the brand

A Discovery II is high up my list of wants, how do you rate the quality etc?

The 38 looks to be a nice size for those with 7" or less wrists really like the aesthetics of the Murph and the movie tie in is a nice bonus too.

Been wearing this for my return to the hamster wheel.

The sun was out yesterday so this seemed fitting, it's my fault the weather turned today.

I have two Farers, and the quality has been exceptional. Finishing especially is great. The Sellita movements are OK - there is a bit of slack when adjusting the time, but they actually work very well. Whereas two of my three Christopher Wards have broken...

Dion doesn't do reference numbers because he's a human being. smile

It's a Magrette Moana Pacific II. Mine's number 44 of 500, and they're no longer available new.

I aslo have a Moana Pacific Pro Steel and a Moana Pacific Pro Black, also both limited and also both NLA new.
