A caseback with a story adds to the enjoyment of the watch.

Re: Caseback of the day

I’ve throughly enjoyed looking at each photograph posted. Some I’ve immediately recognised others not so. That Bremont does look good as does the CW TRIDENT caseback, one of my favourites. The simplicity of the Rolex IMHO is perfect.

Caseback of the day

The front side of a watch gets lots of attention and photographs. Yet the caseback with all its detail and variety often gets second billing. Time to show what’s hidden on your wrist today.

Re: The Olympics

Re: The Olympics

I have to disagree with some of the comments made in this thread about sports that are judged and appeal to the so called ‘yoof’. My daughter trained for 5 years to gain a place in the London 2012 Olympic GB cheerleading team, at the time an Olympic exhibition sport. The level of athleticism and ski...
