    Can someone explain to me why it is that primarily cyclops are featured on dive watches? Why would that be? It's not like you need to see the date underwater is it?

    Apparently, Rolex have a cyclops on most/all their watches with date (apart from the Deepsea). I reckon a lot of divers are maybe just trying to emulate the Submariner by putting in on there.

    Also, I guess you might not want a cyclops on a dressier watch, as it detracts from the simplicity and elegance, whereas a dive watch it's not so much of a concern.

    Me neither. I tend to look around them as its easier to see the date than trying to look through the bloody things!

    I think it looks slightly better at 6 than at 3, but ideally not at all.

    Nice banana. Needs a little time to ripen, though.

    Same as 3 for me.

    Do like that Aquaracer nonetheless!

    EDIT: I can see me buying a Chronograph (probably Breitling) but an Aquaracer is also inevitable!

    Apparently as they ripen they become sweeter due to more sugar content, need to eat more green/yellow ones than brown/yellow as part of the diet.

    But...green bananas are disgusting. Plus apparently yellow bananas help your digestion, green ones do not.

    Who cares, what matters is how good they look paired with a watch

    Don't confuse the man, he got it right the first time. :)

    Pared spelled like that means trimmed, cut or reduced in size.
    Paired is correct, as is paired up (in a pair) :)

    Ah, sorry, that one went straight over my head. It might have gone over Jim's too, as English isn't his first language, but then again I could be underestimating his abilities :D
