Ha ha, yeah I was just kidding.   :lol: :lol: :lol: They're nice watches.  Just aiding along the onset of the filth.


I see that now!

You had me worried for a second though :lol:

I was pretty sure it was just the 'gay toy' thing, but like I said, I dont really know what good watch brands are - havent cared since I got mine, so was unsure enough to have to ask!

I've been watchless for a while now, but recently got myself a watch made by the Slava factory in the USSR sometime in the 50s. It needs wound every day, goes a few minutes out of time each week but I don't care too much as I wind and set it to the school clock each morning.

Oh and Wez I had a binary watch, students are constantly perplexed by it. Not having a proper face or hands, only a circuit board and LEDs confuses the hell out of kids.

I'm mad about watches, I go through them more than anything.

My current one is a Casio Edifice, and it bloody cost more than the RRP for it right now:

My friend had a binary watch, by the time I'd almost figured out the time it had already changed :lol: I'm no good at binary.

As for watches, I'm not a fan and don't own one as I hate the feeling of something strapped round my wrist. Oh and I find that in the summer the straps get very smelly as they seem to accumulate sweat rather easily. Mobile phone or computer has the time on it and most of the time I'll have one of them with me!

I've not worn a watch for like 8 years now. I just look at my phone. Same with Tom I don't like having stuff around my wrist in general.

The binary watches are awesome.

Behold! The binary watch. Don't use it much now though, it seems to cr@p itself and reset randomly after I changed the battery.

just dug out my boss bass synth watch to remind myself what it was like - it unlike me to keep stuff in boxes



Just been watching it on eBay.  That was a nice little windfall for you!  :D
