    I wasn't expecting you to bash the BB. Actually, after now reading your post, it was almost exactly the angle that I thought you'd write about. You have a tendency to incorporate various perspectives from this C11 form (including your own) and then write about it in a blog. So no surprises, it was entertaining (perhaps a better word for amusing).

    Thanks for the post on one of my favorite watches! :thumbsup:

    I absolutely do take opinions and information from this forum to advise my posts, even Charlie's.
    :D

    But no, seriously... without a doubt I definitely rely on you guys to get a general feel for opinion which sometimes makes me question my own and sometimes just hardens my own stance. And I very much appreciate everyone who contributes through the COCO council, I think that really adds to the new release posts. Also I am not the most technically minded person in the watch community as I'm sure you realise, so it also helps to read and pick up on things like the winding problems with the ETA 2824 / SW200.

    And I do try to be entertaining and amusing if at all possible because that's just how I am. If there's one thing that's missing in the watch world it's a sense of humour. Eveything is so damned serious and pompous and I hate that. Actually, scratch that. A lack of humour isn't the most problematic thing, it's a lack of opinions. I would love to open a magazine or a website and read a review where someone actually says 'I don't like this'. I don't see why it's such a big deal... why can't we have an opinion anymore? So that's my starting point really... if I don't like something I'm going to say so, because I have no reason not to. And it doesn't mean I'm right, it's just my 'opinion'.

    Realistically there's probably only about 2-300 people that read my blog anyway so I might as well have fun with it rather than trying to turn it into some kind of commercial enterprise.

    I was a bit disappointed Rob I have to admit. I was hoping to see a mock-up of a pistachio BB58 :D

    Oooh nice, not too long then! Very nice, there are many very cool and luxurious looking 6000 models

    I can imagine it took quite some time.

    The 6000 post was supposed to be done last year, it took a long time and I ended up redoing it because I left many gaps because there are so many 'strap options'. In the end I came up with this idea and filled it out this way...
