Bored bored bored oh wait what is that on ebay ..... I like the look of that



Currently at 99p with 5 days to go .... I have just the watch that I think will suit this insert also I have a spare bezel for it to go on

I quite like that and think it will go well with the minute and second hand.
It's also not a lot of outlay, well at the current price, to give it a try.

The only slight query is with the mark below the "40" position and if it's a scratch whether it could be touched up to conceal it. Very Happy

Dont mind trying a bit of Tcut on a cotton bud it may help hide it a bit better . Lets just see how the bidding goes first

I just need to change the bracelet as I do not like how the pattern continues over the clasp I think it looks cheap and tacky

Yep, I've always liked the squiggle, looking even better with the new insert. I'd never let the squiggle leave your hands, almost a signature watch for you
