@dddrees - spot on. Actually, I figured I did the Aquanaut some injustice. After all, our 5066/1A is the one Patek that my wife regularly likes wearing (I'm thankful for that too since she is HARD on her watches!)... so I can't very well be ragging on the watch that my wife prefers, right? :uhoh:

I know you have a great collection DDD! lol @ "pictures have been posted before" warning hahahha.

Now, just by looking at your pics, I love the way 5167 stands out against 15300. I'm almost passing out by looking at Nautilus lol.

 

Best wishes on the upcoming milestone and the piece that will help you celebrate it best!  And yes @dddreespics are fantastic, aren't they?  

 

As far as "pictures of watches that have been posted before" or "users that keep posting pics of their old watches," well. 

 

:bigstar:

Which is why I continually urge @dddrees to repost said pics. Heh heh.

@tifosi - me too. I'm so tired of looking at pics of the same old watches and watchmakers that I basically want to torch Instagram and all these platforms and websites that bombard us with well-composed shots that highlight fantastic timepieces!

Hey, stock doesn't always mean it's a bad thing. I.e. Galway in DOAK \ Walnut CC


Besides the Malvern in Chameleon and Loden Suede or the St James in Kudu and Cedar aren't necessarily what I would call stock. Hey, give me a break I'm branching out. LOL

It caught my eye a couple of years ago. It's simple, but detailed, and yet its fairly elegant for a steel sports watch. It wears so easy, and goes so unnoticed that is until you wish to stare at it.

Lolz...point taken. Of course context is everything. But perhaps that nuance was lost in the scrum resulting from my original point.

In your post's case, in the context of the broader discussion, totally appropriate. And I, for one, enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.

Hell, even the occasional repost of a fantastic watch is cool. But I think what I--and others--are sometimes at turns both bemused and tired by are the "it's been 48 hours since I posted a pic of one of my watches and no one is paying me compliments" posts. Those...feh.

I have two divers at present, with another due in a month or two (another poor man's version from Borealis). Not a Sub-clone by any means, but one can never have too many divers in my book wink.gif

I'm really rather speechless. Advice would be appreciated.

Ugh. Really sorry to hear this. Not sure I have any more to offer than what has already been said, but I'd definitely get my paperwork/receipts/proof of repair service together and provide copies to HRM Customs. My fear for you is that they say that since you are living in the UK, even temporarily, you will be subject to the duty. However, as @Dino944 noted, having it sent back to the US might be an even worse result.

Make sure you stress that this was previously owned, was being returned from service, and that you are only temporarily in the UK and will be returning with the watch to the US.

Good luck.

It's a watch thread and there aren't that many people and not many people have more than one or in some cases more than just a few.

Just remember most if not all are pretty proud of whatever they have. So some repeats are to be expected. Don't worry, you don't need to be top cop, if it makes enough people mad about it, then I'm sure it'll take care of itself.

Not to start a whole big thing but if we're throwing out thread pet peeves then consider mine every third post having 'YMMV', "Just saying" and/or "Just my two cents" in it.

PICS! :nodding:

^ I could show pics, but they wouldn't be mine. The watch hasn't arrived yet. I've pre-ordered it, should arrive around July/August. A 2000m diver, I'm looking forward to receiving it.
