    I like that one Roy. I used to have a square white-faced Rotary, but gave it away as I didn't use it.

    A bit small & subtle for my taste Barry but Iíve recently put a new battery in it just to keep it going.

    At the other end of the spectrum (almost literally!) this arrived from the US today.

    You do like your diver's watches.

    So I can wear them in the bath (not that I do).

    Now to lower the tone. Four Budweiser branded promotional quartz watches I bought at a boot sale about twenty years ago, they cost me ten quid for the four! The one far right died from leaking battery contamination. These keep very good time, the three to the left had new batteries a month or two back and are still as spot on as needs be. I normally used to reset them once a year, but no longer wear a watch.

    That's odd, when I popped into the forum for a quick look at work earlier I could see the pic, but I'm home now on my tablet and can't.

    It's a Brooks Bentley (no, I'd never heard of them before either). Popped up on ebay at a fair price for a nice looking watch with, what looks like, a decent automatic movement.

    Yes, the Daytona's still on the radar but I've got a couple of holidays to pay for so I'll have to wait till my finances recover a little first. I'm only a poor old pensioner you know!
