That your's Dee? Beautiful watch mate.
I just received a Sinn 104 St Sa and was surprised at how small the thing is. Might have to back it. Thought a 41mm watch would look ok on my 7 inch wrist. I know it's subjective but any thoughts on what size range I should be looking at?

sadly not. lifted it from watchuseek. I would say 40/41mm is perfect. best trying a few larger watches in a local dealer.

Yeah I thought i'd be good with a 41mm. Looks so small to me though. Maybe because i'm a bit square shouldered…reckon body shape has as much to do with sizing as the size of your wrist tbh. Maybe just need to get used to it….or back it and buy a Sinn U1….

Hi
Which secondhand watch dealers are good to sell to in London? Any good experiences? (Not Rolex) Thanks.

Anyone able to help me here? My Dad got bought a watch for his 40th Birthday. Recently got knicked on holiday along with my mums bag. He has been wearing it daily for 10 years so is obviously gutted. I want to try and replace it for him.

It was an Armani watch, fairly standard generic thing. I have obviously done the usual trawling of eBay pictures but to no avail. I will no it when I see it. Does an Armani back catalogue exist anywhere online? Cheers

You can check chrono24: http://www.chrono24.com/armani/index.htm?dosearch=true&query;=armani

They probably do quite a lot of model every year so it will not be easy to find the exact same one.

Cool Cheers for the link. Checked and it isn't on there. It is pretty close to this though, same linkage and shape, different face though. AR0115

Anyone seen/bought a new Daytona? I'm curious to see one in real life.

Seen one. Look decent. Not sure they justify the extra cost at the moment. 50% on top of rrp. Paying about 14-15 for one at the moment. So much choice at that price.

They are starting to filter through now definitely wouldn't pay that much above rrp for it.

the "cheapest" ones starting from 13.6k which is around 4k above rrp. I think this will hold on

is it worth the extra money? I don't think so

How long is the waiting list? Seems a bit silly to spend 4K more rather than just waiting it out.

it's a mystery. I know guys that entered the list right after basel 2016 and still waiting and guys that asked for a daytona in nov. and received it in dec.

so I think between 1-3 years

Can anyone point me in the direction of a reasonable quality 2-piece canvas strap? Timefactors ones used to be reasonable, but they don't do them any more. All I can find on ebay is 99p ones, and then more of the same priced up a little bit.
