    You remember what I wrote about the first one? Thanks.

    I wrote a bit of a travelogue, including a section about Silvermans. I remember that day very well, even though it was nearly a decade ago. Iím glad that I experienced the old Silvermans emporium, in what I now know was an old tram garage - I didnít know that at the time. The new shop is only just round the corner. Iíve only seen it on Street View, but it wonít have the ramshackle magic of the old place. The watches were just displayed under the glass top of a counter. You could easily have visited the shop to buy some boots without noticing that they sold watches. A wonderful place, with the smell of old canvas. Mannequins dressed in Red Army uniforms or Norwegian arctic gear.

    Oh, and as Iíve written elsewhere, my reason for getting rid of the old one - as far as I can remember - was simply that I had gone off watches with fixed strap bars. It didnít help that I donít like NATOs. There might have been some other mad reason too. Downscaling to just a few Ďqualityí watches, perhaps.

    Fortunately, my interest in British military watches never went away, and my aversion to fixed bars didnít last that long.

    Iíve revisited a few watches that Iíve had before, as if I was more right about them than I knew.
