Re: Omega Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 Review

@dukerules and all, I think the issue of a ceramic watch shattering whilst of course possible has been highly over rated as whilst I am sure we have all seen the few examples of broken ceramic watches they are the exception. After so many years now if this really was an issue we would of seen a lot ...

Re: Omega Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 Review

Hi Timeless and all, Firstly thanks for that really well thought out and comprehensive review. I actually bought this watch my first new modern era Omega and the first Omega I could put on the wrist and not think F**k that's way too thick. I have to say though while 44.25mm does sound large due to i...

Re: Hodinkee will do anything for a buck

@logan2z Well not so much a buck more like $14,875 to be precise, someone tried to tell me Hodinkee are all about the "The Collector" whilst I really think they are about the $$$$$'s and the cool hip look at me I'm rich and better then you crowd IMHO.

Re: Need an opinion on a Speedy Pro

Plus as you are getting the original dial and hands you can always swap them back and the Gemini dial and hands...

Speedmaster Apollo 8 Dark Side of the Moon

Hi all, I was lucky to have managed to pick mine up on the 21st June 2019 as fell in love with it on first sight and I have to say pictures just don't do it justice IMHO. What drew me to this version of a DSOTM is the fact it is much thinner then the others at just under 14mm achieved by using a hig...

Re: Engine Tuners

Hi mainman, Lastly just a heads up don't forget if you do go down this route that you will need to let your Insurance company know exactly what you have done or risk in the event of an accident them not paying out claiming invalid insurance due to modifications. That is not just for your car but als...

Re: Tudor BB58 Disaster

Hi all, I also stumbled across this video and thought a lot of it was strange at first but it seems it was not Tudor at fault at all but the Manger of the well known AD and his actions that have reflected badly on both Tudor and his company. This AD is quite a large group and I doubt that Tudor whom...

Re: Someone made a quick profit flipping the Hodinkee VC watch

Hi all, Unless it was the dealer that bought the watch and flipped I seriously doubt the original owner saw any profit and may of been lucky enough to just get his money back out IMHO. Most dealers seem to work on about 40% markup from what they buy their stock in for and then re sell it at from wha...

I was once told by a well respected and experienced watch dealer that it is really easy to make a small fortune in watch dealing you just need to start with a large fortune.

At least until Panerai lift the embargo on reporting on them for mere...
