I understand your complaint about English speakers. But if Wikipedia suggests there are 800MM proficient and semi-proficient English speakers worldwide, that number is way too low. There are 450MM in USA, Canada, Australia and the UK. There are 1,600MM people in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, where English is relatively common compared to other countries. Many Germans have some English as well as every Dutch person I ever met. It's relatively common in many African...
That's great that you're getting value out of it. I think this guy objected to the marketing pitch that was accompanying the watch. I got interested because I read a Slate article in which the guy said that Swatch was basically marketing this as the Second Coming of the mechanical watch. Some of the press release stuff did seem a little over the top, but hey, it's all about the value for you. I'm sure there are plenty of mechanical watches at the same price with similar...
I did a quick search and couldn't see a reference to it, so just in case this hasn't been posted, here's one man's take on the new Swatch Sistem51 watch. Warning: graphic pics of a watch being torn apart are included. http://watchguy.co.uk/review-a-trip-inside-the-swatch-sistem51-eta-c10111/

Need computer help and I'm assuming that there are lots of young stylin' IT types around here : ) A friend has an older laptop running Win XP. He's about to buy a current rig with an i7 proc and Win 8. He has some audio recording software along with plug-ins that he wants to continue to use. Let`s say we make an image of his current drive on an external drive (or conceivably just rip the old drive out of the old laptop). Is it likely that we can plug that external into...
My situation - I'm moving house in 48 hours and everything is packed and already on the truck. I had cleared my schedule. Then something came up which I really need to attend. Obviously no time to buy trousers and hem them. Local consignment store has a pair of Cantarelli trousers with a very close, very faint blue pinstripe. They actually fit me very well. They also have a solid black suit jacket but that's it. I think I know the answer, but this is forbidden right?...
Jesus Christ. I was done posting here but I just have to say that this is totally unbelievable to me. Blitz the orders? Really?No fucking wonder criminals do what they do. It's just too easy.

Just another endorsement for Master-Classter. Great guy, extremely knowledgeable and patient. Why screw around on eBay or other places where you don't know for sure what you're buying, how it's been stored, etc., when you can buy directly from M-C at unbeatable prices. My only source for TF juice going forward, for as long as he's in business.
