1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I was directed to their .com site to purchase from my location.
    Unfortunately the site is not up to the job and contradicts what their emails stated, that's regards postage costs, address input and cost of item.

    For me it just looks dodgy so I'll not be buying unless they get their site working properly for my location.

    I've got a few quartz watches and don't mine wearing them, although I do tend to mostly by automatic or manual wind watches these days.

    Nothing in stock in Zurich today. Flight overbooked as well apparently. So much for a downturn!

    Put my Milgauss in for a service with Rolex. Think it’s just waiting lists to buy a watch from them? Nope. 6 months lead time. For a service. Crikey.

    Make 'em wait, keep 'em keen. These crazy sale prices must end at midnight!

    They're using all their workshop capacity to churn out those pre-loved Rolex Certified watches so they can get a chunk of that sweet, sweet second hand but higher than list price action.

    I bet. Take in a non working example for loose change, factory service, issue certificate, bingo.

    Was up in Enniskillen in Norn Iron at the weekend. Had a look in the local Rolex dealer's window there - used items only. A handful of s/h Subs of varying ages...£9,995 and upwards.
    I nearly dropped.

    Ok, long shot: want a new Daytona, steel, black dial. Any idea if there’s a snowball’s chance of buying one before December? Figuring the heat has come out of the market of late, there might - perhaps- be a glimmer of hope?

    Well, there’s no harm in going into an AD and asking the question, but be prepared for them to politely decline your business unless you have a purchase history with them. Or be actually laughed out of Goldsmith’s like I was last year when I asked to be put on the list for a bog standard no date steel Sub.

    I don’t think you’ll be lucky tbh, the market might have softened recently, but you’re still asking for something that you’ll immediately be able to flip for several thousand pounds more than you paid for it.

    I’ll try the AD where I bought the Sub and Milly new from them. At least I have a history with them!

    Yeah, I like his stuff too, he has some interesting stuff across his bench.

    You might well be in with a shout then! Best of luck.

    I’ll never buy even an earring from Goldsmiths again, however.

    Most of these sorts of watch repair videos just have music playing, it's nice to have one narrated and get all the names of the pieces.
