    How did you make the leap from self love to man love? Freudian slip perhaps

    i find an alarm a extremely handy addition to any watch for the field that's why i moved away from the analogue watch.

    don't mock self love its a beautiful experience

    that must be one of those Gucci 'ambush watches' - the type a lad in training with me had, and when it went off in the ambush the Corporal made him undo his watch and put it on his helmet (which was on his head) and then butt stroked him so the 'ambush watch' never compromised a killer group again

    you can shove your alarm where the sun don't shine (add extra man love if necessary)

    Paid €220 for it.

    It has power saving feature which means at night time the screen goes blank until it sees light or a button is pressed.

    Its solar and atomic clock..It updates every night.

    220 squid is a lot for a watch, I've no doubt it class but do you not worry about when you're using it in service?

    My time peace of choice. I got it when I was on a course about 5 yrs back as my nice Festina watch was getting a little scratched. I got it on e-bay, and iirc, it came to about €40 incl shipping and has not required a battery change since I got it.
    What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

    This one has out lasted my below G-Shock, in terms of batt and maintenance, plus its been around the world with work. (Diesel, grinding, diving, acetone, resins etc etc) Added to that it weighs no where near that of my G-SHock and is about 1/3 the profile of it on my wrist.

    no CS - i dunno what the letters mean but they all look the same and they do not come with individual markings.

    they are normally issued to NCO's but anyone can sign for one as there are plenty to go around.

    Why dont your lads have their own watches-

    luckily we are payed so well that we can afford our own watches- cars and houses-

    Is it true Mickey Mouse wears a royal green jacket watch-

    See I am getting in on the act

    lol - your watch may be on your wrist Hedge but your finger is not on the pulse!

    we already discussed how the days of the Irish DF being much better paid than us are long gone (except when you guys are on Footballers pay for serving overseas!).

    i've seen a few Mickey Mouse watches knocking around battalion - if that means anything?!
