Thread: European vacation

  1. #1

    European vacation

    My wife and I decided to visit Europe this year. Our first stop was London.

    As a huge Harry Potter fan, she was devastated when she realized that tickets to Warner Bros. studio were sold out for the date of our visit.

    Few days before we left here tickets became available so we were able to visit the studio.

    This vacation was not supposed to be about watches at all.

    I took two that I felt were excellent for the vacation.



    I felt that we could make s small detour on our way to local museum and we ended up at Silverman's.

    My vacation watches have a new friend now...

    Superb! An absolute classic watch. I have had the no date for 5 years and I live it

    And then you found it was in Watford.


    I enjoyed my trip to Silvermans. A unique place.

    No, not Silvermans - the Harry Potter studio.

    I wasn't clear enough...

    Local museum as in London. We went to the studio in Watford, but we're staying in London.

    Mile End Road...

    Now I'm sad, because I have to do the HP tour without the promise of an SBS Diver at the end

    great watches -as it current RAF issue might be nice to put RAF nato on it -i have had several vintage models -currently have a 70's Hamilton W10 mechanical -one of the last ones made before they went to quartz - much underrated watch superb value for money _GJP0044.jpg
    its might be of interest to know that a new CWC g10 purchased from anywhere other than Silvermans is likely to be a copy
