Re: Gordon Murray T50 Live Launch

Loved the Harry video - watched a few moments of the JWW version and it was cringeworthy! :) I like how plain it looks, although the rear (and rear 3/4s) look awful. Sure, I get the fan etc and the design/engineering is massively impressive, but it looks so stupid. Can't wait to see/hear/read more a...

Re: Explosion in Beirut

Apparently it was a load of sodium nitrate that had been confiscated and was being stored.

They use that I'm solid rocket boosters.

Very nasty stuff...

Re: Masks in shops

My concern is that people will somehow become complacent because they're wearing a mask - like it suddenly makes them "safe". I don't think people are really aware that wearing as mask is to protect others from you and not to protect you from them. We still need to be just as vigilant with other pre...

Re: Used Boxsters - Talk to me....

Wonder what they'd be like as a daily? Can only speak of my 987 but going from an estate to this I have no issues day to day - it can fit supermarket shops, garden centre plants and soft luggage with ease. It would be no use if you had a dog or kids. :) That's interesting, thanks. We'd be moving aw...

Re: Used Boxsters - Talk to me....

This thread, and seeing a lovely white with black wheels Boxster at the weekend, plus the sun being out again has got me looking at 981s on Autotrader I don't really know much about Boxsters But in the mid £20k-30k range for a nicely spec'd 3.4S, they seem like very appealing cars. Wonder what they'...

Re: The Watches Thread

I like the way the new Tudor 'blue bay' looks.

Kind of Matt finish.

But I've never really noticed the bracelet before. That's nasty! The kind of rivet things on the end of the links. Urgh.

That really spoils an otherwise appealing watch IMO

Re: The Watches Thread

Jobbo yeah, prefer the brown bezel on the Yachtmaster. It's funny how we react to things in the flesh though. As I said a few pages back, my step-Dad's Rolex with the "salmon" face I'd never have considered, but in the flesh it's a really elegant watch. Alex_ The thickness of some Tudor watches has...

Re: The Watches Thread

But you like the blue and black bezel on the Batman? I think the black face with blue bezel is more attractive than the Smurf Sub. Who knows if Rolex will ever make one themselves though. I do indeed like a Batman - I like the Pepsi too, but not the Coke (for some reason). I really don't like the S...

Re: The Watches Thread

Maybe it's the ubiquity of the black/black Sub that made me react against the blue bezel.

I've not heard of the "bruiser" - the link above is the first time I've seen one.

There was something about the blue bezel that didn't work for me.

But this is what makes life interesting, right? :)

Re: The Watches Thread

The new Pagani arrived today (a PD1661) which basically a Submariner but with a blue/black sunburst dial. Build-wise it feels identical to the GMT I got recently (which is understandable as they're the same watches, but with a different bezel/dial). It's unusual looking, and I'm not sure if that's i...
