Glad you like it. Looks pretty nasty though IMO.

Dress watches hardly get the best rep here, so would be very surprised if anyone had one.

I looked at vintage a while back, but far too small on the wrist at 34mm.

I tried the 5127 on yesterday. Very nice watch. They offered a decent discount too surprisingly Smiling

Hi nickyboy84,

Do you work for Opumo? If you do, then posting like this on a forum is some seriously underhand and snide marketing shit.

The only reason I'm asking is that a lot of your other 18 posts seem to be all about the wonderful world of Opumo too…

Opumo sale is small but good - Andersons Belts are on sale. I just picked this up:

Anyone got an iPad case suggestion? Thinking something army canvas like but good quality..?

Maybe you should think about checking Opumo? Strangely enough, they sell a couple by Hasso which according to the Opumo website are "Handcrafted with gentle yet sturdy cotton canvases and the finest waxed vegetable tanned leather". I'd pop a link to them, but I think you already know exactly where to find them…

Anyone have any knowledge/ thoughts on the Tag Link Calibre S…

It's either that or a carrera chrono automatic, how do they compare? Is the Link considerably inferior to the Carrera?

Could do with some tips- I can get a new link calibre s for £1400- the carrera would be double, is the link good value at that price?

The Link is ugly (to me at least) and a Quartz which I wouldn't touch with a barge pole, so I would definitely go for the Carrera if you must have one or the other. I have always thought the Carrera was a nice enough looking watch for what it is but you can get a Omega Speemaster (which is infinitely cooler and more classic) for a similar price if you want a Chrono or a Rolex Submariner second hand around the same price if you are not worried about a Chrono.

don't have any watch fund at the mo but this looks like a great watch for less than a K, nice fresh looking case with a lovely patina on the dial, huge crown, lugs are nice and sleek and looks the business on the wrist.

I need a replacement leather strap for a couple of watches I have….the ones that "go" with the watch are nearly a bottle each and i really dont want to pay 400 quid for a tiny bit of leather!
Anyone know a good site for quality leather straps please?
