I havent but I did asked that question and was told it was not difficult for someone that knew how to do it (which my mate does, not myself)

i dont necessarily think its digs, but generally speaking they're making inferior watches to their competition, whether thats movements, tech, finishing etc but charging far more due to marketing. maybe they're just a bit fed up of the unstoppable rolex hype train.

for example, you could get a brand new black bay 58 AND a new aqua terra for the price of an explorer. the aqua terra alone is a 'better' watch. it's madness.

their videos are great though. also horology house does some great vids, definitely worth a follow on insta/youtube.

on another note, the guy who does watchfinder sounds exactly like alan davies Laughing out loud

Maybe it’s the start of the Richemont influence?

No idea - he was fiending over it yesterday and I said the wise men of FUK might be able to point him in the right direction.

Finally got the handset changed over to a correct and matching set, well happy with the colour match.

Got em from Michael in the end as well. Thanks for the recommendation.

5 digit Pepsi and a day date next on the list now.

Tried on a super case Hulk and definitely dislike the new lugs.

I know, its getting silly. Will hopefully be able to jump on before they get even higher.
16710 is exactly what I'm after.

try to get one with the black inlay and buy a pepsi at your local AD for around £50 - could be cheaper Eye-wink

I sold a Rolex on here around 2012/13? I sold it for my housemate who was skint at the time… oyster datejust… it was originally his dads who passed away this week.

Having no joy in my dm’s finding the buyer, if whoever has it could pm me I’d really appreciate it!

Thanks.
