Today is the first time I am seeing that posting. I should read the forum more carefully. :scratch:

I´ve never seen the Benrus watch and would love to see how the module is built. Thanks for sharing! :-D

That's probably because I didn't post it until 1am this morning. :lol:

Perhaps Mick has some shots of the inside. He informed me that there's nothing nasty lurking when you open her up.

But then again I still haven't delved that far b e c a u s e..... :ntars:

Thanks again Hanno I love yours too.
Ps. Did you get the booklets done? :call:

You have made a good point. ~:(

The manuals should be here tomorrow finally. It´s more a small booklet but it completes the package. It took over 2 months for the (german) printer to do the job. :fool: :fool: :fool:

I'm glad it was you who said that: M:)W:)M

Looking forward to the Booklet/manual turning up.
One thing,
At first I was uncertain about the display being a little more set back than I'm used to.
Now I quite like it, it is reminiscent of the dials on my (now gone and sadly missed) Jaguar XKR.
They were so deep set that only the driver could see how fast you was going.
Mind you sometimes it was a good job. !@@! !@@! !@@! M:)W:)M

The deeper the dials are, the better. I have an old BMW from the 70s for sunny days. If the weather is nice and matches with a weekend plus we have planned a trip (combination happens twice a year maybe) we will probably take that car. Because my wife is always complaining about the speed I changed the way how I hold the steering wheel so that she couldn´t see the speedometer. That worked for a while, now she can guess the speed just by the motor sound. :eek: :eek: :eek:

Best get yourself an XKR or Xjr saloon.
I promise I have never been going so fast ( in either ) that the Mrs was over 35 MPH out with her guess. :no:
Honest. ~:( ;-) :grin1:

Thanks Jason.
Don't think we're alone on that one. ;-)

I think that this Santa only comes when you work so hard you F your back and shoulder up
so bad that you can't even get out of bed for 2 days let alone walk.
The pain was so bad No over the counter pain relief would work.
The only relief I did get came in the form of 2 bottles of Merlot and 12 pints of real ale.
Shared with my best mate along with one of the longest meals out I have ever had.
Started at 7 pm and finished off the last of our cheese boards at 12.30 am :grin1: :Prost:

Nice catch on that Benrus, they're very rare, I sold one on eBay some years ago and it fetched £650 :eek:

Do you have the instruction book? If not let me know, I made a scan of mine before it went.

Oops just checked, it was a long time ago before I had a scanner, it's just photos, I gave all my Benrus pop up photos to Adam at DWL so the manual pics are there..

Hi Rich :Hi: errrrm take a look at what's in the box lid in the pic. :eek: ;-) ;-) ;-)
If anyone wants a copy/scan of them, I'm sure the Mrs would sort it on her new scanner.
(see piece below) :grin1:
Thanks anyway always good to know. I've been in touch with Adam re. the Benrus.

And thanks for your comments. All of you. :Prost: :Prost:

I was chuffed just to hook them but with all the positive comments I'm over the moon.
Even the wife said the other day while pointing to an area on the landing:
"....and I thought that just there might be a good place for your watch display cabinet" :eek: :eek:
Well,,, I almost passed out. :ironie: I don't even have a cabinet:: YET. :grin1:
All I've ever mentioned is having a part of a room to keep and work on my watches.
Now she wants everyone who uses the bathroom to walk past them.
That's what I call progress.

Sorry I was not bright enough to take photo's of its guts when I had it in bits.. ... the next time it needs some TLC I will (promise) ;-)

Cool watch with a very James Bond pop-up action - great catch 8-)

Here's mine to share.. ... ..

YEP that's the one I was referring to earlier in the thread.

All your bloody fault. !@@! !@@! !@@!

Grrrrrrrr. I want a box like yours, :scratch: and a band come to think of it. :grin1:

Oh well as I just said to my friend "Mother always said count your blessings son,
for they are many fold" ;-) ;-)
:amen:

On another point I'm having trouble seeing how to remove a link or two.
Doesn't seem obvious to me.
Any ideas Mick?? :Prost:

Hey Jagmad, i'd love a good copy to go with my benrus pop-up.
Maybe you could send me the files or ask the Mrs.
Those benrus pop-ups are The Holy Grail. Welcome to the club of happy few owners. :-D
