^^^^^
Looked an awful crash didn't it?. I was amazed he only lost a minute. The only other one to retire was a Czech guy who had a puncture when he looked like getting bronze.

Re: Broken second hand

You will probably have an excess with your watch. If you decide to make a claim, it might make more sense to get a new replacement if offered, rather than pay for a repair, but it would be best to send it back to CW to get a quote, I think.

Good luck.

Are you in the UK or elsewhere?

Re: Cycling (Olympics and non Olympics)

That's not it at all.

Anyway, mountain bikes tomorrow, which ought to be between Tom Pidcock and Mathieu Van Der Poel, but you never know. Peter Sagan didn't have a great time in Rio. Go Tom.

Re: Cycling (Olympics and non Olympics)

I agree. I thought she performed fantastically. The commentators did as well The commentators thought she had just been allowed to get too much of a lead, under very hot conditions in Japan, and had been able to sustain the lead. Unlike team racing, where teams have 6 members, the Olympic national t...

Cycling (Olympics and non Olympics)

Olympics today. Well that's hilarious. Apparently there are no team radios allowed in the cycling, and from what I saw, the gaps weren't being communicated. In today's women's race, an Austrian cyclist, Anna Kiesenhofer led from the start, and with 2 others built up a 10 minute lead. The other two f...

I thought the pink dial presented very well.

Re: C63 Sealander Collection

Seriously, you would think they might consider a bigger range of colours and sizes of straps, to give buyers a wider choice. Many (most?) OEMs don't limit their strap ranges to just the standard straps they sell on the watches. CW straps aren't exactly overpriced compared with most manufacturers.

At least it's not a manufacturing issue, anyway.

Re: A celebration of colour

I'm not sure about the gold casing. It would be nice to see the same dials in stainless to compare them.

Re: Rolex on Posh Pawnbrokers

Yes. A UK TV programme showing high end pawnbrokers. There's also posh pawn (prestige pawnbrokers).

Not at all to be confused with Les on hardcore pawn on 8 mile road on Detroit.

Rolex on Posh Pawnbrokers

Yesterday, Wednesday they had a Rolex Daytona with aftermarket pink diamonds, for £6000. The owner had the diamonds added to bling it up. Today they had a 1958 Rolex bracelet watch dripping with factory set jewels that only fetched £3200 I just can't see how these sort of prices correspond to the pr...

Incoming - It's Like The Sopranos

I was nearly out, and they pulled me back in. I tried to resist the green AT Homage with as long as I could, but that AliExpress discount code made all the difference. My first green watch, your honour. Anyway, here's the new green Phylida (NH35A), with sunray dial, and the existing white Corgeut.(a...
