My Tag is flat because it has a battery...a winder wouldnt help

Rolex is worn day in day out...(take it off to sleep, shower or wash/work on the cars)

I have a leather strap for it too, chop and change when i feel the urge......

Looking at the IWC range atthe moment, they become addictive to own!

Love checking out the high end watch websites - should post some of my favs....... I'll have a look

I had a Big Pilot - well briefly, couldn't get on with it - nothing to do with watch size as I have 8" wrist, anything less than 45mm face looks too small + I like stainless bracelets - Agree tho' they are fantastic made watches and amazing movements.

What - battery watches go flat? Never! I think you knew what I meant, having being advised by Breitling to store them like this as it prevents wear on the windings, I keep them in here when not being used.

I like watches, never did and moaned about people spending stupid amounts on them......

I like them alot now Over the past 5 years ish ive treated myself to a number of watches ive lusted over.

My first high end watch and in some ways my favourite:

Opening day!!!!! Shocking iPhone photo...



Better iPhone photo lol



Ive also got 3 more watches (I cant even find one shocking photo of any) from what i consider the other top 3 brands (1 from each)......

I dont wear them often not for any fear but to keep them special, to wear a nice watch for me is an occasion.

Cheers

PaulN
