      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

    Posting a bit...
  1. Your top dealers?

    I've used Mary, Watchfinder (Fat Panda) and WatchOutlet (TD on RWI). All A+
  2. First luxury gen Chrono: Monaco vs speedy?

    I was looking at exactly the same watches for my 30th - after trying both on I ended up going with the Speedy. The Monaco has a pretty unique case and doesn't fit all wrist types.
  3. What do you have incoming?

    2x Pelagos 1x Borealis Sea Storm (pre order) 1x Omega Speedmaster Pro (gen)
  4. VIP Giveaway - AP 15202

    I'm in.
  5. Seiko SKX007 or SRP Turtle with a Super Oyster bracelet from Strapcode. Steinhart Ocean 1 series Armida (http://www.armidawatches.com/) is a great micro brand - I would check them out.
  6. Shipping between Iceland and USA

    Icelandic customs are not strict in the sense that they are seizing packages, they often do require a receipt showing how much was paid for the item in order to calculate the applicable VAT. Labelling the item as a "gift" will do nothing in 99% of cases. However, sending the item as an untracked letter, if possible, seems to avoid customs most of the time (my experience) but that method is not without risk. Seeing that this is a trade (equal value?) I think the best course of action would just be for him to contact the Icelandic post office and check how one should proceed in this case - he is trading one item for another of equal value and what he should do when the item arrives. Generic question that should get a response.
  7. How does this compare to the SKX007/009 size wise?

    I scored this Hamilton for 229$ including shipping. https://shop.hamiltonwatch.com/khaki-aviation-aviation-auto-h76665135.html Bracelet is utter crap but it looks amazing on leather.
  9. Be quick!

    Oh man. 239$ (+ possible 6.4% befrugal) for this Hamilton. http://www.ashford.com/us/watches/all+brands/hamilton/khaki+aviation/H76665135.pid Wasn't going to get any more watches...
  10. Anybody have experience ordering from Taobao?

    I think there is a member on WUS selling these watches direct. His nick is "tamtkpp" Hurr
  11. Heads up - great deal on SUN023P1 on Massdrop

    They didn't mention that it was a limited drop but it was pretty quick to reach the limit!
  12. FYI - SUN023P1 was just added to Massdrop for 174.99 - 169.99$. Currently listed @ Creation for 440$ https://www.massdrop...sun-diver-watch (no referral link)
  13. sourcing a rep buckle

    Linamarket is the go to source: http://zlimsnzlimsn.aliexpress.com/store/217871
  14. Are there any closet Sinners in the house ?

    Recently got my Sinn 6100 regulator, beautiful watch. Insane value.
  15. New Week Wrist Check - 25th July '16
