Final piece?

As I've mentioned elsewhere, I recently retired from teaching (although have gone back for a while part-time). I'd planned on getting a new watch to mark the occasion, and it was a bit of a process as I expect this to be the last new watch I buy. There were lots of pieces in the running from the Sei...

Re: Setting time diver chrono' gmt

Thanks everyone, appreciate you each taking the time. I think I've finally got it, after, of course, the school-boy error of not paying attention to the 24-hour cycle: I originally set it at just after noon (the actual time) but had set it at just after midnight :doh: :oops: I must have either a ver...

Re: Setting time diver chrono' gmt

Haven't done one of these for ages. Blue SMP kick for couple of weeks now; my son appropriated my original and is still away at Uni' and I managed to find one, new-old stock at a discounted price. Happy Sunday :cheers:

Anyone know anything about them? Can't seem to find much on the web, so am assuming they're not especially collectable?

Re: Stay at home binge watching?

Just started season 2 of Bosch. One of those series I'd never bothered with and now I'm glad I didn't - really enjoying it and means I have another 5 seasons to binge on.

Watched The Gentlemen last night. Never been a Ritchie fan, but I really liked this one and there has to be a Bremont in the film somewhere.

I missed this at the cinema, where is it on?
