    Unfortunately as a boutique edition I paid list price (I forget exactly what it was)- did manage to get VAT back though, so that and the weak pound helped.

    Is that the new boutique edition Memovox?

    Edit: yes, I see it is.

    Nice. I like the case shape. I used to have a Le Cheminant that was a little similar.

    Good question. I still have it in a box from a house-move before last!. It's not seen daylight for a good 10-12 years. This spring I'm having a good clear out of the garage loft. I'll post pics if I find it as it'll need a check over service.

    I used to own two Longines before the Tag Heuer illness.
    I particularly love their Master Collection, quite refined and a lot of value for the money.

    Their recent vintage inspired releases are very well done in my opinion.
    The heritage 1973 is a modern Camaro alternative.

    And this is my new weekender; the Seiko SKX007, this one a rare made in Japan dial NOS.

    Check the Legend Diver, unless you want a dress watch.
    It is really nice, and there a couple of ones for sale on watchuseek (and elsewhere) for good prices.

    Welcome!

    Zenith vs. Omega? Quite different watches for me. The classic 3-colour subdial El Primero is a great watch and I'd buy that ahead of an Omega. Having said that, Zenith tends to be a brand that all watch lovers appreciate and respect...but never buy! Hopefully that changes.

    The new 38mm Heritage 146 is spectacular
