  1. Genuine Wrist Check October 17

    See my NGWD thread for more details on this Welder Photochromic watch:
  2. NGWD (New Gen Watch Day)

    So whilst on my travels in Thailand, I met up with an associate who's well into his watches and who was wearing a really eye catching piece. As the watch moved, the glass seemed to change colour dependent on the light that was hitting it at the time. He explained it was a relatively new thing called 'photochromic' glass, made by a company called Welder, and for whom he was the sole UK importer (he also deals in U-Boat, REC & Visconti). Italo Fontana, designer of U-Boat, is the man behind the Welder. I had to have one, and so did Mrs Dave and we bought two on the spot over dinner and drinks - well, they arrived today and I have to say that they look amazing and they really do change colour in different light! Mine is a WWRC812, dual time in rose gold, 42mm with a gun metal mesh strap and Mrs Dave's is a WRC107 in rose gold, 38mm with a sumptuous soft pink leather strap. https://www.welderwatch.com/en/collection/moody If anyone is interested in any of these, PM me

  6. So - managed to grab myself one of these beauties today and was wondering what you lovely folk have done for replacement straps? I'd love one of the Angus Jubilee ones from Strapcode.com but they're all sold out and looks like no longer an option. Have read these: https://strapcode.wordpress.com/2017/07/20/share-the-curved-endlink-bracelet-between-two-watches/ http://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.php?305081-Seiko-SARB017-Alpinist-bracelet-options Any more ideas for some sort of really nice SS bracelet? Cheers all! Dave

  8. NGWD (New Gen Watch Day!)

    I've lusted after one of these for a while and after viewing just about every Youtube review there is out there and finding one on a deal that was good - I thought, fuck it, sold some pieces to fund it and took the plunge! Have to say - it's much prettier in the flesh than the reviews/pics/videos do it justice. It's a stunningly yummy watch! I get the green is not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm not everyone. This will be on the wrist for a while...
