Another one from tz

Another one from tz

Postby sixer » November 16th 2015, 11:04am

Hello all ,
Another one here from the land of warm beer and wet weather.
I actually joined a few days ago but for some reason my IP got banned permanently. Admin has now sorted this.
I have modest collection of watches including Speedmaster pro, Seamaster GMT, Seamaster Chronostop, and several of Eddie's finest including Speedbird, Dreadnaught and Everest.
Pictures may follow if I can recover my photobucket account after I left all my stuff on my works computer when I retired, and I've forgotten the log in :-(
Cheers Chris.
Cheers
Chris.

Welcome Chris. You have been a bit modest in describing you 'modest' collection. Looking forward to seeing more of it.

Welcome to the forum.

Do you know why the Brits drink warm beer, Their fridges are run by Lucas Electrics!

I used to have electrical gremlins in all of my British sports cars from my 64 MGB to my E types. Of course the damn Lucas carbs sucked too.

Lucas stuff isn't compatible with warm weather, cold weather, or any weather.
I had a friend who worked for Lucas in Wolverhampton in the '70s and he said it was so unionised, and everyone worked to rule, that it was impossible to get anything done.

No, because I don't have to buy that.
Anyway, I call it 'fooling around'.

Welcome to Watchlords; the joint's more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, and the food is much better.

Yep it's a great watch.
I also have a Zeno Explorer, (I refuse to call it a Zex as described above), and I find that they both wear well even though their size is very different.
For clarity, I'm not a small person, but I'm not hung up on large watches.
Cheers
Chris.

You know, you goddamn Aussies are really the end. I mean, here I am, trying to salvage the Special Relationship so that America and England can continue oppressing the brown men and Muslims to lead the free world, and you guys have to throw goofy Smilies into the thread, trying to Cecil it!

For fuck's sake (as Toby likes to say), here we go again. Before you know it, the fucking blowhard Colonel Blimp snobby Brits fine UKers at TZUK will get all fucked off, calling for my head again, and Alain will have to, very correctly, point out that America saved England's bacon not once, but twice, in the last century, The next thing you know, you lot will start bringing up Gallipoli and Transportation and the whole fucking thing will fall the fuck apart.

Jeebus!!

Nah! I didn't exactly finish on good terms with the directors, and I was just happy to get out without decking any of them.
Got a G shock solar atomic and 2 bottles of single malt for 25 years though.
