Should I Buy This Watch...

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I need a new watch, but should I buy this one ?

    ""Featuring highly accurate kinetic movement, this watch from Pulsar transforms the transforms the movement of your wrist into electricity, storing it to power the watch – you’ll never need a watch battery again.""

    A special for Guardian Readers Wrist Watch

    The problem is I always wear my watch on my right wrist and I do not want the battery to become overcharged and explode, thus blowing my hand off.

    But could I use the same system to power my i-Pod ?
  2. No, thats not a watch....... behave and get a Breitling
  3. MDN
    You impress me,
    Which is your particular choice?
  4. I'm a bit of a Brietling saddo

    NAvitimer Heritage, headwind, chronomat and just order a Bentley

    But I live in a carboard box under the M4
  5. There's nothing worse than these Rolex/Cartier/Muller "Bling" cretins

    Breitling/Omega Seamaster is the sign of a real man.
  6. I've got a daytona, by default, I hate it...... I like a cartier on a chick, not a blingy one, a santos or similar, understated and classy.

    Had a sea master for years, not worn it since bond slaughtered it

    I've wanted a Breitling for years, bought myself a Colt, it's as near to idolatry as I dare (tho' I wouldn't mind an M3 ;))
  8. Fair point about the Santos on a classy bird,

    Daytona, please bin it unless you are a chav footballer.

    The Seamaster is the best watch for the money. Nothing comes close.
    I've had mine for 7 years now and they still sell them and the price still goes up.

    Is this a bit of a silly conversation?
  9. No I'm a watch geek....

    The daytona gets worse, mother of pearl with gay diamonds :D


    Promise mine by default :D ;D
  10. Colts are the welfare variant of the Breitling

    You got me...see you under the M4 :p

  12. This sea master don't suppose you want to flog it??
  13. Back again after a good nights sleep.

    Or rather, my wife came home and caught me ARRSEing with a pile of empty beer cans and the baby unbathed, awake and only half fed.

    I am a 'recovering' watch geek.
    At university in London I used to buy and sell second hand watches on Hatton Garden.
    I used to barter watches until I had a really good one and then sell it on the Strand making sure the final version was not stolen and therefore traceable.

    Coincidently, one of the main diamond dealers was an orthadox jew, who used to wear all the kit, and had one of my old mates from 1 para as close protection.

    I like Breitlings, but the good ones look too big on my skinny arms.
  14. Might be worth a look for you watch lovers
    If there is something you like the look of PM me and i will try and get you a bit off the price too(an old buddy of mine)
  15. That must make me a waster, I'm still wearing the Casio G shock that I bought in 1987 from Curry's.....
