    My first proper watch, went for a Seamaster Pro :D

    Managed to get a nice discount at Beaverbrooks. Watch arrived today and inside is £500 of vouchers too. Can be spent on Jewellery between now and end of Feb.

    If anyone is thinking of buying a watch, might be worth looking at.

    If anyone is thinking of buying some expensive jewellery, pm me, I'd be happy to do a deal on the vouchers to save you some cash.

    I had a speedmaster that constantly broke, ok for walking on the moon but couldn't handle the recoil of my Mauser.
    Got a Seiko titanium chrono instead. Smaller, lighter and hasn't broke yet.

    I am horolophobic so I need to constantly know what time it is, there are four watches and a clock on the bedside table so its easy to grab one when I wake up in the middle of the night and need to know the time.
    So now you can see why I need a reliable watch :laugh::laugh:

    Well I have to say my Tissot Touch is fantastic, titanium & stylishly modern, paid alot less than the Omega, think was about £300 but I wouldnt pay anymore, I hate rolex, breitling, tah heuer, etc, I only bought for the technology touch screen & the orange strap, lol, best watch ever bought though, I usually buy Skagen Titanium as original but lately they've looked *****, so upgraded only ever time(excuse the punt) & havnt regretted

    Ive always loved good watches, and currently fancying a certain breitling chrono superocean - unfortunately watches are rediculously expensive in Oz, so will need to wait until my kidney sells on e-bay, or I'm on my next overseas trip.

    I'm currently wearing a Seiko divers chronograph and I broke the glass - local repairer said its very unusual and the glass is 3.8mm thick, with a 6 week delivery ex japan
