    So I phoned up a jewellers here in the UK - they stock Rolex, Tudor, Omega etc and are well known.

  2. My local AD is giving me a hard time

    TAG Heuer
    I recently asked for my local AD to order me a case to replace a damaged one for an earlier model Formula1. She said it would be no problem and that I would not need anything other than to put a new crystal in the watch and transfer the movement from the old to new case. Here is where the...

    Cartier
    I'm looking to buy a second hand Cartier Must 21 for my gf and I have found two that look very nice and with a "good" price. They appear to be the same apart from the fact that one is 1330 and the other is 1340. What do these numbers mean? Are they related to the year in which the watch was...
