      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

  1. Dealers in Pattaya?

    Never heard of him, and don't want to. Never heard of him, and don't want to.
  2. Watch spotting

    It has to be curved, or it would flop over, it's so thin. Bit like trying to hold upright a sheet of paper.
  3. Total noob to reps. Buying question

    Surely the 7750 has the secs @ 9 as its native position, so hasn't needed modification. I've always considered secs @ 9 to be the most reliable.
  4. Why do people advise against Gold Rolex or Ap's?

    Because shit happens. This isn't reflections. This is SS showing through.
  5. ...just seen an advert for a Hublot that looks like a watch. If this reps, I may even consider it .....
  6. Got a IWC on the way from josh.. can't wait

    So excited, you posted twice
  7. A week on the wrist

    Bought an Invicta Mickey Mouse at the GTG. Pretty well worn it exclusively since then.. The only time I wear something different is if I leave the house.
  8. When in Greece........

    Does the countdown timer work?
  9. Noob question about rules

    If you can see M2M, you are allowed to buy. Whether the seller will accept you will vary.
  10. New in from Reg

    Guys, Deployment is what you do in the military. Deployant is the strap.
  11. A Rolex (rep) as a graduation gift

    Use postimage to embed the pictures. It ain't rocket science. Great choice .
  12. Rollie is brilliant, and has one of mine at the moment. However, he is a gifted watchsmith in his spare time. He has full time work, and then does repairs evenings and weekends, when he hasn't got a life. Give him time and patience and you'll do well. Demand service by tomorrow, and he'll probably tell you to fuck off. (He may be more polite than that, of course)
  13. Regmariner hands

    Here's a wild thought. Drop Reg an email, and see if he can advise.

    Really don't know how they can sell at this price, and cover postage. And they even include a battery.
  15. UK Customs delay - Parcelfroce "Sorted"

    When you're awaiting an illegal counterfeit import, the last thing you should be doing is drawing attention to the package. Keep your head down, and be patient.
