      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. I thought footballers watches were Hu Blot
  2. A week on the wrist

    Give me a week or so as my camera has to go off to be calibrated, it needs a good camera to do it justice.
  3. Rare Rolex sold

    Went for a few quid more than the £8000 estimate http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-41597833
  4. AP Diver V7 JF from Toro

    Lovely looking watch, must admit to being an AP snob at the moment...nothing else will do.
  5. A week on the wrist

    I have 2 AP's, as Seb Buemi and a Marcus Limited edition black and white. I love the Marcus edition so much it is almost permanently on my wrist.
  6. Not a PN in my opinion

    I once got given a box of watches by my landlord, in it was a 1957 9ct gold Rolex datejust. They had been really good to me and I returned it to them as it was my landlords fathers watch, I got a few months rent off for my honesty.
  7. Rolex does disney

    Hate to say this but it must be taking the Mickey.
  8. Next time postie calls introduce them to a blunt end of a pineapple, choice of orifice isn't optional.
  9. I really worry about some members.

    I tend to read rather than post much, saves me the embarrassment of getting size 13s stuck in my throat.
  10. I changed my opinion of Invicta

    There's medicine available for your condition now. It might make you a little sleepy. I thought the medicine was more along the lines of animal tranquillisers.
  11. A closer look at Omega Speedmasters

    Certainly not Valjoux movements either one.
  12. Is this worthy of a complaint to a TD?

    No the lume on one of the markers is 10x as bright as the rest, if it were all even it would be fine
  13. Is this worthy of a complaint to a TD?

    This will test my photographic skills, it really is a shame as the rest of the watch is great. Will get some pictures up of it in it's glory.
  14. I received my Planet Ocean Chrono today and all is pretty good but only the dial marker at 7 glows with any brightness, it's a shame as the hands and the one marker are fantastic. The photo's shown on the watch page show a much better lume than I have for most of the markers and that aside have been very happy with the whole process. Am I just being a whinging Pome worrying about the lume? Otherwise the watch appears to be pretty close to the original and has been tested by the TD to +10 seconds a day.
  15. Tips on how to do a Quality Check upon arrival

    Just bought all the necessary tools and grease in preparation of my watch arriving soon. Thanks for a great tutorial.
