United Kingdom 2016 Range Rover Autobiography SDV8 Corris Grey

I can appreciate a nice watch, but since retiring 3 years or so ago, I've not worn a watch as I've no need of one. Still keep looking at Brietlings mind you.

United Kingdom 2012 Range Rover Vogue 4.4 V8 Orkney Grey

Only watch I ever lusted after is the Omega Speedmaster AKA 'moonwatch'. Never bought ( invested in) one as it's a bit too big for my wrist, I'd be worried about loosing, damaging it of having it stolen and ultimately just don't want to spend that much £££ on a watch.
Practical watches for me with Tritium markers so I can tell the time at night. 2012 TDV8 Vogue (L322)

Which brand with tritium market did you choose? Looking myself at the moment.

Most of the mainstream brands use SuperLuminova, Rolex have their ChromaLight, I think Ball still use Tritium encased in glass tubes.

Military Watch Company AKA MWC. Not ‘genuine’ military watches apparently but tough, functional, cheap and with tritium versions. 2012 TDV8 Vogue (L322)

I’ve been looking at luminox for a while, but also the g-shock watches as a weekend beater. Will check them out.

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Vogue SE SDV8 Siberian Silver

This is mine. Always wanted a watch that I could read the time from when it's dark. Also prefer a stainless steel strap rather than the fabric ones. This is my second Traser. The original I have had for over 20 years. But, with a half life of 10 years it's now rather dim at night. Hence the new one. This should last me another 20 years. 2013 Vogue SE SDV8

That's the downside of Tritium and why I don't spend a fortune on them. For an even cheaper option Timex do some nice looking 'field watches' where the whole face illuminates with a press of the crown. 2012 TDV8 Vogue (L322)

Nite Watches do a good range of practical everyday watches with tritium markers at reasonable prices.

Timex are no longer cheap and cheerful. they are now considered desirable in the US. worn when your Rolex could pose risks

Spain 2012 Range Rover Westminster TDV8 Baltic Blue

Thanks, @JayGee for the heads up on the MWC recommendation Thumbs Up

Great website and a cracking range, it’s nice to see some character in a brand without the need for slick marketing.

I’d like a new ‘daily’ watch as well as a special one. The MWC Divers range looks more than adequate. 2012 4.4 TDV8 Westminster - Baltic Blue, Jet interior, 20" Shadow Autobiography alloys.
1997 P38 2.5 DSE auto - LHD - ex -workhorse, now being restored.
1988 Vogue 3.5 EFI - Manual, gone.
2004 Volvo C70 2.0T convertible, had since new.
2007 Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport Roadster/Coupé, had since new.
