Very nice :-)

Hawk's GS is superb also.

Lads, this is amazingly helpful and you are reading my mind in ways I hope to be able to make clear in a few days' time when I've actually bought the sucker. Updates coming soon…

Ha! I am actually in Pommeland already so it's hard to go home. Maybe I should leave and go back? Watch-Brexit?

I was considering a Tudor but Beckham has just started advertising them, and now every clown and wannabee is talking about them. My watch-mad pal thinks that Beckham could actually ruin the brand. But let us see...

Tooter seems to have issues with finding a brand ambassador who doesn't end up as a serial fucking killer--it was probably only pure dumb luck that they didn't sign up OJ Simpson before he went on his bloody murder rampage.

Anyway, while most of us here look down our collective noses at the whole "brand ambassador" thing, poor choices can certainly add to WIS perception of a brand--viz, if only assholes are buying watches because of a BA, then it's worth considering if one wishes to steer clear of 'em.
