Totally agree. I can also recommend getting some advice from the gentlemen on omegaforums.net. Here's a link to the thread where they helped me out with a 1967 Seamaster 565 cal. I paid $285 for it from some guy in Mexico, had it shipped to a guy in New York for a service and have had it serviced once since in Sydney (when I finally had it confirmed face to face that the watch was genuine and not a 'frankenwatch'.Here's the watch.

Thanks, was missing the friendly banter As for the Jeke, I don't think I'll ever get sick of that brute of a scent. Almost finished the bottle. What to try next?
I've been getting some tempting spam from George and King recently, and being close their Sydney showroom I am thinking of having a go at their "bespoke" service. I think I'm looking at $1,200 to $1,700 depending on cloth. Fully canvassed but I doubt it's your own pattern hence putting bespoke in quotes. Anyone have any experience, good or bad, with them?

I bought a pair of slim 'comer' thin wale cords a couple of months ago. Nothing special, but at $25 on sale can't complain. Were really slim though. Would size up next time.
There was some shirt talk a few days back. I am tallish (6'1"), bit longer in the body with the kind of hips that mean my trousers are often around the hips as opposed to just below my belly button. As a result I find that many OTR shirts come untucked at the gusset (the bit on the side, typically shorter than the front and back). And for some reason that really pisses me off. But a few months ago I finally found the perfect OTR shirt - Kamakura. The sizing options are...
