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. Evening Gents,

    Im looking to buy a new watch, i have an everyday watch which i quite like, and so am looking for something slightly more formal to wear at functions etc.

    Clueless in this area and since most likely off to RMAS in Jan thought i would consult those in the know about what is acceptable.

    Thoughts etc, many thanks

    Nick
     
  2. Thanks for your help.

  4. Breitling Navitimer Heritage
     
  5. ON2 have a look on the forums tab,The intelligence cell,there is a link for Telford watches a site sponser,the disney watch did look smart though!

  9. Thanks,

    Telford seem to be the answer, however most of the mess dress watches on display are out of stock.

    I dont need assistance choosing a watch merely deciding what is recommended.

    Anyway everyone else thanks for the help
     
  10. If you don't want to splash too much cash but look like you have, Rotary have released a 'traditional' range which I think is quite spiffing for the money. The following model retails for £175 (which is about the most expensive).

  11. If you want to splash a little more on a vintage or new watch give these guys a look. They specialise (obviously) in chrono's...

    Includes the rather wonderful glycine combat automatic (£695 in white, red and blue) which uses the Valjoux 7750 movement, the same movement that is found in watches that retail for 6 times the price...
     
  12. If you're looking at spending more than a £1000 on a watch, a Breitling is a solid investment.
     
  13. Rotary is ideal if you are old and crap and limp wristed.
