    Default I done got me a new watch!

    Impressed Iccy? You should be son.

    Tis a sad tale, a terrible accident befell my trusty 20yr old 13.50 Sekonda, gutted I was, we'd been through so much together over the years.

    Whilst feeding branches into a chipper the strap caught, well..you can imagine the rest. *Sob*

    After an extensive rescue mission all we could find was a small piece of mangled strap.*Sob again*.

    To ease the pain I got myself down to The Watchman and hey presto, rummaging about, he pulls out another brand new Sekonda that had sat lonely in the back of the draw for 10 years.

    8 quid later and all is good again, this one should out live me easily.


    Feast yer eyes on this little beauty!

    Good watch JJ. I am wearing a Sekonda Titanium which I have had for a very long time. Works wonderfully so long as you don't have it too near your ear when in bed. It can then resemble Big Ben.

    I like a thread with a happy ending.

    Seriously though the abuse the old one took was amazing, several falls, one from around 60ft bouncing off scaffold on the way down, under water, splattered with weld, down drains, in the bath etc.

    I should write to Sekonda.

    Am I the only person who was expecting the 'watch caught in a chipper' story to have a much stickier ending?

    I knew that would catch someones eye Daz.

    I'm not oblivious to that danger hence why I fit cheap leather straps. My wrist didn't twitch as the strap snapped.

    The new one will have the same before I return to work.

    A watch is a watch is a watch.


    I used to like their ad slogan:

    Sekonda. Beware of expensive imitations.

    I prefer the rubber or synthetic rubber straps. Better when getting wet.

    That looks very nice JJ. Wasn't there somebody else who was looking for a watch with a blue face and a metal strap?
