    Someone else paired my last phone (or was that 2 phones ago?) but as Renault in their wisdom didn't bother moving the speaker for the UK's right hand drive version of their cars you just got this distant disembodied voice from the passenger footwell, why I haven't bothered pursuing it.

    Inspired by this thread I picked up this Rotary off of the bay.
    It's clockwork ... and by the look of it pretty much unused since it was bought from H Samuels in Hull in 1984 ...



    Keeps damn good time too - when I remember to wind it up

    ... here's another one I got years ago from a cheap tat junk shop.
    Apparently it was cheap tat in it's day as well ..

    Still keeps good time though:

    This is the pride and joy though - and my daily wear.
    Bought from some shop on holiday years ago.



    When I was still employed and timekeeping was very important for my job I would think nothing of spending up to £15 at Argos for a watch but as I was on holiday I thought I'd treat myself and pushed the boat out at £20.
    Excellent for when I'm mucking out the gutters or lancing the cat's boil

    Thatís very good for £20. I hesitate to tell you how much I spent on a watch when I pushed the boat out on holiday.

    I posted this on another forum, and after seeing Roy's watches it has tempted me to fork out for this one. https://www.creationwatches.com/prod...atch-9324.html
    I also showed this link, incredible value for such a classy looking watch. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071NQTB...link4973751-21

    How big Grant?

    I had to move this one on, 60mm was just too large.
