Yep. Charlie @ Equus made the strap for me. The other pieces are Cleverley.

I swap around between a couple of Seiko 5's a basic Orient watch and an entry level Tissot automatic. They're accurate enough for me.

Go traditional? http://www.zatchels.com/default/sale/up-to-50-off.html Decent enough quality for the price.

I have a vintage automatic Seiko diver that I haven't worn for over a year. I'm glad that watches have no appeal for me, one less thing to spend money on. I truly don't get the appeal of a quartz watch - they work fine but we're surrounded at all times by perfectly accurate time keeping machines, so timekeeping seems like the least of a watch's appeal.

I too love the Russian reindeer. Wish the smaller pocket wallet was still in stock at ASW so I could wear that all the time. Don't wear jackets every day now that the weather is nice, so jacket wallet is a bit much every day

She's starting on her A level after the summerbreak, so I was planing on giving her something nice, which is also large enough for all the stuff she needs to carry.

The watch loving gene skipped me, but if I ever decide (or could) get one, I might as well go to this small place in my back yard

Lange makes beautiful watches, if I had that kind of money to drop on a watch it would say Urwerk or Greubel Forsey.

The larger 14" size is pretty capacious (my wife teaches A Levels and she can get a day's worth of marking in one wink.gif ). The quality isn't bad - they're made in the UK from reasonable leather and come with a lifetime guarantee.

If you're wanting something nicer maybe try Henry Tomkins: http://www.htleather.co.uk/category/satchels he makes very nice bags.

Most of my wife's students seem to use sports bags, but I'm possibly too far away from 16 to know what a 16yr will like.

If it was a 16yo BoK I think you would hit the nail on the head, but I don't think she would go with something like that.

My Liberty printed suggestion got shot down a while back, so what do I know.

Get her a tote bag. I wouldn't know what she's like, but I would think that a tote bag is the most versatile option. 

 

She might like something from Haerfest.

watches haven't been very popular on the SWD side, especially as it's become less traditional over the past five years or so. In, say, 2010, I think more of us would've been excited about a watch thread.

@RegisDB9 do palm beachers think its funny that there's a vinyard vines on worth ave now
