  1. Watches and Denim

    Nice piece on a Hamilton Field watch collector. All about the details, right? https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/confusing-fall-warblers-collection-hamilton-field-watches-found

    Ahhh, so that's what it stands for. Daniel Wellington. I see these watches absolutely everywhere in London. Them and Michael Kors bags.

    Need to snap these in the day when the lights good, but heres a pic of my 1109xx - the Signet ones that Edmond sorted out.
  4. Watches and Denim

    Really want one of these. Keep looking at it.
  5. Watches and Denim

    Popped this on for the time being. Got it off Etsy for my old Seamaster. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JonesInTokyoLeather

    My impulse buy Bell-Matic arrived yesterday. A little tatty but I'm pretty happy with it for the price. Going to keep an eye on eBay for a new dial (but they seem to be pretty rare and more expensive than the watch itself!). The strap is nasty though. Going to have a hunt round for a replacement. Open to suggestions from the SUFU hivemind? Wide lugs - might just get a nicer nato strap? Or a metal braclet?

    This may just be me, but I have had two pairs of washed 1109xx and they've been great, but one pair of washed 1109 and they are still (after 7-8 months) a touch too snug. Maybe the different denim shrinks differently or something, maybe I was unlucky. But aside from that, one-washes are great. Fade the same as one's I bought raw and soaked myself.
  8. Watches and Denim

    Yeah, same. Also the reason I really like the Omega multifunction watches. All those features with a really limited way to control them.
  9. Watches and Denim

    I don't know. To be honest, I got instant buyers guilt when the email from eBay arrived. The face is pretty tatty and I didn't even check if the alarm worked. CURSE THIS THREAD!! Will definitely add photos when it arrived.
  10. Watches and Denim

    Big time. I just won an eBay auction for a Seiko that I randomly put a bid on. Was cheaper than the 'beaters' I was look at so thought 'why not?'. t

    Thanks for the links! The smaller one is ok - I have pretty skinny wrists so 38-40 is about my sweet spot.
  12. Watches and Denim

    Ahhh - that Timex is just the kind of thing I'm after. And it's in the END sale...
  13. Watches and Denim

    Anyone here have anything they like wearing as a cheap day-to-day beater? I had one of those Timex military replica ones that was about £40/£50 - wore it when I was cycling to work and whatnot - but I lost it.
  14. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    I don't think they're on that level, personally. Soles are more comfy, rest of the construction is pretty much the same as the standard Vans Authentics. The ones I just posted are the Anaheim ones.
  15. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Pretty unimaginative, but it's a pair of white Vans Authentic. When a pair wears out, I get another and have done for years. Same colour every time. This pair is about to get relegated to DIY duty.
