4.0 out of 5 stars A slight departure, 18 Dec 2010
I've been listening to Barking now for the past couple of months..

The first couple of listens were a bit of a surprise - they've lightened up their music a lot . . not much brooding doom and gloom on this album . . Second listens made me think they'd been blatantly influenced by Chicane on "Always loved a film", and Susumu Yokota on "Hamburg hotel".

I spent 4 years plucking up the courage to spend nearly £2k on my first "proper" watch. When the moment came I was very torn - is this the stupidest thing I could be doing? Shouldn't I be a bit more down to earth? A watch is just a watch, right?

WRONG!

The Monaco is simply stunning. I'm now 2 years in and I still adore it with the same passion I had all those years ago. Wearing it is a real treat. It's reliable, accurate, and pretty much bulletproof. When I first got it I was babying the acrylic screen and fretting about the leather strap and clasp. All seem pretty much indestructable. Over time it has picked up a few very minor knocks . . but now it looks… Read more
