    Bullionbilly reacted to vand in Is London all that great?   
    Like any big city, its great for when you are young, dumb and full of c-u-m.
    When you're a bit older and especially if you have a family then there are other considerations to take on board.

    My dad was a Grenadier Guard who has carried out the ceremony of the keys back in the late sixties as the sentry. He carried out quite a few ceremonial duties as well as a few tours of Northern Ireland and loved every minute of it.
    There's a saying; 'Once a Grenadier, always a Grenadier', and that sums him up.
    I should add that although he loved his time in the Guards, as a kid, I was never once taken to see any ceremonies in London like trooping the colour or even visited Buckinham Palace. All the stuff that tourists love to see I missed out on. Tight git he was.

    My daily is an Omega Speed Master Pro Moonwatch which I wear on a gasgas bones made to measure strap (great quality and a good price - https://www.gasgasbones.com/)
    Crystal sandwich version so has a crystal front and case back so you can see the movement which is nice, comes in a huge presentation box with lots of extras.

    This year i purchased what i would describe as my “dream watch”. It’s not something i wear every day but its something I appreciate every second it’s on my wrist. I’ve wanted it since before i had a pot to piss in as they say so to me it was a really special purchase. Plus... ITS GOLD!

    So @Madstacks if you think you will get £1000 worth of enjoyment out of it then i say go for it!

    Got my Rolex 12 years ago (also when I was flush) model is a GMT-Master II 
     
    I do wear mine everyday, although the service costs are high they do come back from Rolex literally looking brand new.
     
    Lovely watches

    WOW some incredible watches here - Omega and Rolex are so out of my league price wise but you cant help but marvel at them. Watches for life. 
    Heres the one i am eyeing up,  
    Seiko pressage, Shippo enamel dial, crocodile strap, sapphire glass front and back. They do two versions and im looking at the 12mm thick one without power reserve dial as at 14mm i am concerned its a bit to chunky - still deciding. I think the movement is a fairly basic work horse of a movement - but the dial is where a lot of the money is going and quite out of the ordinary.

    Jesus ! so surprised by how many people have Rolex and Omega watches here, well done guys, I love this forum.
    I'm 29 years old and at the moment Rolex and Omega are way out of my league too, not that I can't afford to buy one but I've got more important things to save my money towards  , maybe I'll buy one when I'm 40 and driving a Ferrari 😎
    anyways, exactly two years ago I had to make a decision on what watch to buy with £500.
    I went with Tissot, because I wanted to buy my watch from a well known brand who their speciality is making watches and nothing else.
    so this is what I bought and I love it.
    I don't wear it everyday though, because I'm sure it will be destroyed at work in maximum one week
    my everyday watch Is a G-Shock and I love this one too, it tracks my steps, and when I play football I know roughly how much I'm running and nothing can destroy this watch, I had one of them for 8 years until I got bored of it and bought this one.
