love the watch, hate that disproportionate small seconds hand.
I worked in Nairobi on and off for 2 years. We had a security induction where we were specifically advised to not wear high value watches or anything else that would make you an attractive target for mugging.
Enjoy Kenya - it's a wonderful country with wonderful people just take common sense precautions.
My wife was working in Mauritania and Senegal recently. She drew a lot of attention, particularly in Mauritania, for wearing a £75 pair of Nikes. Pretty certain a fancy watch would have been much worse.
day and month hands have come off your Ingersoll :( Ansel they cant do anything, do you want it back to fiddle with?
No thanks mate
Missed this, sorry. I think you’re in the same boat as me with small wrists and at the limit of adjustment, the straps are just a bit long.
In terms of hooking onto the buckle it’s just a matter of technique, I lift the bottom corner of the buckle with a finger on the hand that’s holding the hook.
Anyone interested in a Presage Cocktail Time??
Getting bored of eBay time wasters.
Tudor Black Bay 79220 (Smiley red pip)
Light usage marks, new Tudor bracelet (Cost me £500), Rubber B strap (cost me $250), unused Tudor NATO, original leather strap, box and papers.
I'm very happy to sell it on here for less than I would get on eBay, just to know its going to a good home.
Any interest at £2850? Equiv of eBay final seller fees donated to forum...

Urgh. My fave are the ones who bid in the last minute then ‘change their minds’.
I really like this
The lowball offer specialists coming in with £150 🙄
Forum black “Friday” specials
Planet ocean olympics limited edition 339/2018 £5570 now £4500
And seamaster 300 £4700 now £3800
New auto Timex is super nice. 25% off with Black Friday code too.
Timex continuing to smash it.
Nice - what 25% code is it?
edit - nvm, it's the main Timex website.
edit - i have to add extra text so @Velocio doesn't edit my post to lowercase.
That is a really good price for the "collectable" Black Bay with those extra bits, i'd be all over that if i didn't have a smiley.
Do you think the red-backed Rubber B would suit the blue bezel BB (and if so, any interest in selling that separate from the package)?
I think you will regret selling that in time .
Possibly, although that depends on how much I like the replacement.
If anybody is on the fence about buying it, I'll probably put on eBay on Monday if no takers.
I love the open worked lugs.
It's called Timex Giorgio Galli S1 if anybody's interested
Doesn’t work on the S1.
That Timex looks nicely designed but it’s 41mm. Bit silly.
Should be 46mm maybe 48mm
Actually I just bought a 42mm time and date watch, so I can STFU.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
