      RWG NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!   04/09/17

      RWG Needs Your Support - upgrade to a VIP/Supporter membership! If you find your time here to be useful and (we hope) entertaining, we encourage you to become a VIP/Supporter member. This only costs £21 (a little under $30 USD dependent on exchange rates) per annum and all proceeds go towards our hosting costs and making RWG the best watch board around. By becoming a supporter you will also gain a number of benefits including: 1. If you subscribe during one of our VIP upgrade competitions (announced above the shoutybox on the board index page and also found in our competitions subforum), then you could win a nice watch (usually a high-quality rep). We run these competitions approximately monthly, so keep your eyes open for the next one. You will also get access to our free birthday VIP giveaways - you could win a strap, watch tools or even a watch (there have been some amazing prizes including gen Longines, Raymond Weil, Hamilton and Victorinox watches, along with various high-end reps!) 2. Early access to the Member Sales area (see the sales area for rules) and the ability to bump your sale to the top of the board periodically. 3. Access to the supporters-only section of the board. 4. Increased PM storage 5. The ability to change your displayed user name (once in a 90-day period). 6. Occasional discounts from some of our dealers (keep an eye on their subforums for special offers). PLEASE PM Greg_r to upgrade to VIP

    Civility is in short supply. The internet hasn't helped that at all.
  2. Hello from Melbourne!!

    Hey I have a pile of sawdust at my feet welcome aboard mate!
  3. I got " why wear a watch - it only does one thing!"
  4. noobwatch.com

    Sigh. Fifteen trusted dealers must've began with 1 then 2 then .... well you know where I'm going. Why bother? Because that's how the dealers who don't shaft us are discovered.
  5. Vintage Watches...brands to start with

    I agree that Longines has real allure - you can get one from the 40's that is similar to the one Bogart wore ... I am looking at them now

    I just bought one this evening and hope to use it as a near-daily beater. I own one of the cheapish chronos which I'll sell once the PO arrives.

    Looks like a melbourne meet might be fun
  8. DREAM REPS - warning. A rant follows For me, I low-balled in the early days, capping out at around $200 all up. Then I started researching 1:1 reps that I really loved/wanted and were good enough to pass even rigorous inspection. Prices ranged from around $300 to $650 which is a bunch of cash but worth it for me in context of making a buying decision for a lifetime. I built a cabinet to hold my timepieces, their boxes, mb pens, after shaves and collection of ties. Considering the enjoyment this hobby has given me, the cost while considerable, has been over several years and a manageable addiction which even the mrs approves of. Hope this answers your question
  9. RWI down for anyone else?

    too many days for them to be well I suspect - reminds me to download any pics of timepieces that I love, but apart from that selfish statement, I sincerely hope Trailboss can get it sorted and will be back on soon ...
  10. my 2nd FM tourby just arrived!

    It really is nice ... and beautifully photographed. I was going to get one but the slight inaccuracy of the tourbillon 'fm' put me off. Still, it is beautiful
  11. nice .... lovely quirky things - this is my personal fave (sorry, can't see how to embed video)
  12. Hi from Australia

    Hey mate - welcome. Enjoy, learn, contribute, learn, stuff-up, learn again ... and have fun Once you decide which particular brands appeal to you, sing out and folks will be quick to assist ... at least that's what I have found Steve (Kilmore VIC)
  13. Which Breitling?

    I love my B4B Flying B Chrono No. 1
  14. Gen hornback arrived for my Safari

    Apologies for the quality of the pics .... my DLSR is being repaired so the iphone camera is all I have BTW what I really hate is that we have to spend $400 - $600 for an AP strap when real hornback straps for Pams can be bought for less than $50
  15. Gen hornback arrived for my Safari

    Everyone probably already knows, but for the hell of it, here are a few pics of the Monty with the supplied strap.
