    I was only thinking of getting a Rolex to wear while playing snooker, pool and also darts, and a JLC for any other time ( pardon the pun ), but because I prefer Manual wind and thin case watches I'll just go for that kind. Now I've mentioned my dream watch being a JLC Master Ultra thin Jubilee, but another that would be a dream to have is an A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia.

    Before getting that metal bracelet for the JLC Master Ultra thin I had, I was thinking of getting one of those Rolex in the photo as a second watch, but from now on I'll only have a watch that has a leather/crocodile skin strap.

    25g. The good thing about those titanium stems, is there are two sections, so if the top of a stem gets damaged by a dart or anything else, it can be replaced with another which screws into the other section. Bet your wife will be throwing darts more than you when you have that board. 😀 Ah, just noticed these tops are aluminium.

    Received those Harrows Retina flights, and also short titanium stems which are now on my Unicorn darts. They probably won't make me play better, but think they make my darts look cool. 🙂

    The Rolex Explorer ll is a nice looking watch Rossliew, but there's something about JLC's that just appeal to me. 🙂

    I might just do that 🤔, joking aside I'd never sell my BHSE. As well as the Jubilee, I also like the Master Ultra thin 41, but it's an Automatic and I prefer Manual wind, having said that, I do play snooker and 8 ball pool regularly, and I'm left handed, so wearing that Automatic while playing those two game would be winding it up, don't know if it'd do any damage to the watch doing that though, but I can make enquiries. 🙂

    Because that JLC Master Jubilee at £11,650 is going to take me sometime saving for, I've decided not to give my brother that Reverso until I have that Jubilee, I just wish that Jubilee was available in a stainless steel case, which would then probably be priced at 5 or £6000. For me the thinner the watch the better, and the Master Jubilee at 4.5mm is quite thin.

    While I'm liking that Reverso Grande Ultra thin, I've come to the conclusion I prefer the JLC Master Ultra thin, and if the one I had, had had a black leather strap, I'd have never swapped it for that Reverso, my biggest regret though was getting that JLC SS bracelet for that Master, I should've got a JLC black leather strap with a deployant clasp. Now my dream watch is a JLC Master Ultra thin Jubilee, whereas my youngest brother very much likes that type of Reverso I now have, and I did promise to get him that model of Reverso, so I've decided to give him that Reverso and start saving for a JLC Jubilee, I'm also now not going to bother getting a Reverso Tribute 1931. Two photos of my dream watch.

    Thanks Torpedo. It is a very nice watch and I'm pleased I got it, but if I hadn't got that metal bracelet for that Master Ultra thin, I'd have kept that watch. Although I've now got that Reverso Grande Ultra thin, I still plan on getting a Reverso Tribute 1931🙂

    Thanks for that Reks, but when that Reverso needs a new strap I'll be getting a JLC with a deployant clasp.

    Didn't know that was/is available, thank you for letting me know.

    Got that JLC Reverso Grande Ultra thin and love it, not only do I think it looks classy, but it's extremely comfortable. I'm at it again with photos, but these are of that JLC. 🙂🙂
  13. Head-Case Darts

    Think I'll just see about getting an outer ring with secured metal numbers, then fix it to the board, for now though I'll use it as is.
  14. Head-Case Darts

    Received that Unicorn board, protective surround and mat, but have yet to secure the board to the wall where it's going. It does seem a nice board, but the numbers are plastic and removable, whereas that Winmau I had had metal non movable numbers which I much preferred.
  15. Head-Case Darts

    As I mentioned, I've just started playing darts again after having a few years away from the game. The last board I had at home was a Winmau which I was very happy with, but decided to get that Unicorn for a change. The darts I have that I've had for sometime are Unicorn, 22g and barrel length around 50mm, but because I'm not throwing with much authority now, those darts sometimes fall out the board, so I might get some Gary Anderson 25 or 27g darts which look similar to those I have shown in the photos. With that said I'm open to suggestions about different darts. Here are my darts. ( Sorry about the not so clear photos ) The flights look a bit flimsy, so I've ordered a few of that in the other photo.
