Where are all these extremely large face watches coming from?

I know IWC do some as Klopp use to wear a few but are the others I see around just rubbish makes?

Here's some suggestions:

Laco Zurich - £200



Laco Pilot Ju (I'd change the strap) - £400



Parnis Pilot Plus - £150

Tissot are cheaper but they're a very well made and elegant watch.

I've got a Tag Heuer Kirium, it is an automatic watch, which I never take off. Had a strange thing happen recently, had a weekend away at Easter, had a few kickabouts with my lads and on the Saturday ended up playing in a game for about an hour. It was mainly kids/teenagers so I went in goal, was quite active and made a lot of saves. Next morning, my watch was an hour fast and has continued to be like that since, it was running about 4 seconds a minute quick. Did 30 minutes on the treadmill at the gym on Tuesday and since then, the watch has been running perfectly again.

Anyone experienced this before and any ideas what has gone on?

Might be worth taking it to a watchmaker to get it regulated.

You're in Manchester, aren't you, Rob? Mutter's in the Northern Quarter is good and doesn't charge a fortune. Worth ringing him to see if he can regulate automatic watches as not all jewellers will.

Gorgeous. And given its provenance, you are going to love wearing it.
Picking this up today:



Itís part of my inheritance from my dad (heís been off this planet 35 years). But the silly plonker managed to pull the crown and thread out just before he died. Iíve put off getting it fixed for years due to the prohibitive cost (relative to the watchís value) but in a place where I can afford it without worrying now.

Fair play to Omega, they have only charged a standard service fee plus a nominal charge. Canít wait to start wearing it at last.
That is a thing of beauty

I have a similar watch , 1963 seamaster deville , my second watch purchase , two years  after buying an aquaracer because I liked the chunky divers watch but a more subtle white on black tag , I know tags are a bit more common but thought the aquaracer suited my wrist and loved it , it has now got me hooked on watches so then a few years later researched a dress watch and the DeVille was the best by a mile in my price range.

Classy and elegant, unlike me

Would love an IWC but need to square it off with the wife first , keep telling her they are investments for our daughter to cash in later....much later
