Cheers for the options all.

I personally really like the Seikos but I think he wants something a bit more Bauhaus.

Mr P has got this Uniform Wares watch with an extra 10% off so £229 instead of £425

Out of interest has anyone got a Nomos Tangente? Bought mine years ago and noticed they've over doubled in price.

Is a Tudor Blackbay 58 on a bracelet difficult to come by?

I've been wearing a Uniform Wares C35 for the past ~6 years and absolutely love it.

List was about 6 months I think however seeing the GMT pop up in windows now which were supposed to be hard to come-by. A mate recently picked up in December just by ringing a few stockists.

Thanks. A 6 month wait wouldn't necessarily be bad for me as I recently bought a Rolex Precision off here. I imagine my wife wouldnt be happy if I get it anytime too soon (April would be ideal).

I plan on moving on a Longines Hydroconquest to help fund it.

I'll check some ADs this week.

I got on a small list today in an Edinburgh AD. There's a couple folk infront of me and they mentioned April. Seems like they get one a month.

I had a Sub (114060) but, as much as it’s a cracking watch, ended up moving it on as it just didn’t sit well under my sleeve (shirts in particular). Felt too big for me.

I want something far smaller that I can forget is on my wrist. Does anyone have a Rolex date (115200)? 34mm will be too small for most Fukers tastes I imagine but perhaps not…

what about the 14060? it's way smaller and fit under the sleeves of a shirt. better looking as well as the newer fat subs

I got the precision in a 34 which felt small on a leather strap but is somehow much more substantial on a bracelet. I really like it.
