    Doesn't say on their web site about a discount, but I got an email (maybe with being existing customer) from them a couple of days ago with a 20% discount code for VE & Sturmanskie, that was all the temptation I needed.:) Have a few true Vostoks as well, fun watches, and like Steinhart, have the...

    GX pillows, were do you sell them, only on our web site or Ideal World, we took the decision not to sell to anybody else in the UK. Yeah, I bet you were saying the same when you were selling them on QVC couple of years ago and of course you're selling your pillows through Amazon right now...

    Hi ronzy75 and welcome. I collect watches too, far too many, it’s an addiction and just can’t help myself. Just ordered a new one the other day, Sturmanskie Chronograph "Ocean" Special Edition 3133-1981599, which Ideal World are selling for a reduced price of £1199.99 (normal price £1299.99)...

    Between Friday and Monday we have Constantin Weisz, CCCP & Reign watches, what are the chances that these shows are only taking place because of Baselworld's cancellation. ;):)

    I bet that was dig by Reynolds there, he was speaking of Mathey-Tissot, Aviator and Vostok Europe "these are real brands that display at the Basel fair". Pretty sure that was to make sure that viewers realise that these three brands are actually watchmaking brands and would have been at...

    Well looks like a Vostok show tonight, although no Peter Simon, surely recovering from a bout of verbal diarrhea, given the amount of :poop: he's spouted lately, he needs a deserved rest, so probably won't be so over the top show. But it does look like the line up of watches is the same as the...

    Peter Simon would probably spell it Basil anyway, he's never good with getting names right. ;):ROFLMAO: That's probably the closet these watches will get to Switzerland, even on their journey from China, if by air, flights from China to the UK go over Russia, Sweden to here.:ROFLMAO:

    Empress, China made, watches, nobody else will have them, were to launch at Baselword (christ every watch on IW was going to Baselworld:ROFLMAO:), yeah right, that's why Empress themselves have been selling since 2018 on Amazon UK. Of course doubt they sell many, they are charging their inflated...

    that'll never happen. :ROFLMAO: I've had a search but apart from their own web site and Ideal, can't any jewelers etc selling them. Peter says you’re getting a £400 watch James Fields replies and people who see it say they expect to see another zero on the end of that price. £4000 delusion...

    See they copy of the article is being shown again, and Peter Simon pointing out the yachts, Mercedes car etc as the kind of people who would be buying these watches. Well if I owned a Mercedes think I would be wanting something a bit better than a Swan & Edgar on my wrist and if I owned a...

    Of course you're forgetting they will need a script writer to write all the delusional crap their spouting, can't believe the the guy Fields or the presenters have the intelligence to come up with the sheer nonsense in these shows. Now I know IW are good at nonsense on watch shows, but these...

    The Swan & edgar VT says, "from Swan & Edgar who produce, high quality, hand assembled British designed timepieces" They don't produce anything, they order them from China, it's a Chinese factory that produces them. Peter - "extrodinary relationship blah blah, four generations of watchmaking...

    Personally I think Swan & Edgar should make an official complaint to Aliexpress, it's obvious that brands on Ali are producing homages of the Great British designed Swan & Edgar luxury watches, it's just not cricket. :ROFLMAO: Or maybe it's the other way around a Chinese design pinched by the...

    Anybody who pays £140 for those Cufflinks & Pens needs locking up, sorry to say this, anybody falling for this crap has to be an imbecile. The crap from these two tonight is unbelievable. :ROFLMAO:

    Have to laugh at the Bloomfield "sports" watch, it's a "sports" watch has a water resistance of only 30 mtrs, and they have the cheek to have a diver style bezel on it, a bezel that non rotational to boot. Some sports watch. :ROFLMAO: Peter Simon Classic quote - "Swan & Edgar competes favourably...

    I know, the folks that buy these Baselworld specials, will be nervous wrecks, imagining having these precious luxury heirlooms sitting in their homes uninsured. :eek::ROFLMAO:

    Not sure, didn't see the show last night, she's the young one that does Proskins, but recently also became a presenter. Yeah she is a bit enthusiastic, but she's the only one i can seem to like, the rest just annoy the hell out of me with the rubbish they spout. Speaking of rubbish, those...

    Yeah IW read here, Rob Locke mentioned something I posted here shortly afterwards on a show. Funny thing is despite them reading here and where it's being pointed out the misinformation they are saying, they keep doing it, which just goes to show that instead of just being mistaken, they are...
