  1. Hi, I bought the Orient 5 Deep (Ref. CEM65001BW) 7 years ago. My original plan was to buy this cheap watch for the holidays at the beach (but still having a mechanical watch). Over the years I have been wearing the watch quite often. The rate deviation is approx. +5s per day which is a great and impressive result for this price. Also the movement is an in-house movement and not a Seagull, Miota, Sellita, ... standard movement. There is a youtube video comparing the Orient movement with a standard ETA movement (disassembling both). It's impressive how simple the design is (and thus robust). I can highly recommend this watch in that price range. I believe (but never had one) a Seiko is on a similar (maybe slightly higher) quality standard. As an entry watch you cannot do anything wrong with it. But please don't compare it with high price watches like Omega, Tag Heuer, Rolex, ... just because they look similar. There are worlds in between...
  2. Mine arrived today. Great work. Thanks @MildredM
  3. Hi @MildredM , do you have two more Lelit towels (without MaraX - just Lelit)? Would be great for my Lelit Bianca.
  4. No easy to describe. But when I look at the flow with a naked PF the coffee stream is more "dancing around" rather than straight from the middle and I also see more spritz on the cup. That's not always the case but more often than without the disk. It seems - at least for me with my humble skills - that consistency is harder to achieve with the disk... Would also like to hear some experts' opinion on that and also what's the explanation for Rob1's and others observations.
  5. I can fully echo what @Rob1 posted on 3rd April. I will do now some direkt comparisons with the same beans etc with and without the disc. Also had the feeling that the shot is much more "nervous" with the disc (not sure if this word makes sense in that context but when I look at the shot with the naked PF this word came to my mind).
  6. If anyone wants to have a 5 off coupon from Horsham, just use this link http://i.refs.cc/Nvb25Zd6?smile_ref=eyJzbWlsZV9zb3VyY2UiOiJzbWlsZV91aSIsInNtaWxlX21lZGl1bSI6IiIsInNtaWxlX2NhbXBhaWduIjoicmVmZXJyYWxfcHJvZ3JhbSIsInNtaWxlX2N1c3RvbWVyX2lkIjpudWxsfQ%3D%3D I guess it only works once for the first user... They also have free shipping above 15.

    The FFFrench

    Big difference between France and almost all other countries (e.g. UK, Germany...): in France you are absolutely not allowed go to work (ok, unless Police, medical service...). In the UK people still go to work if they cannot do the work from home (which is allowed according to the Gov statement).

    NFC shipping

    What if I order 10? As Niche said we would only have to pay for the shipping I assume I will get 10 for £8. then I could distribute via Royal Mail to other owners just for the costs of the shipping.
  9. There’s an update on Indiegogo. You can now order it for $9.99. I thought it would be for free? Only shipping costs.
  10. I open the lid, engage the red switch with a toothpick and then move to fine while the burrs are running...
  11. Yes you’re right. I only checked this category before I posted. Seems as if there are several „discount“ categories/sub-forums...
  12. That‘s the latest statement from Niche (10th Feb): “We plan to have the NFC disk available to order early next month, and we will post all the details on Indiegogo and our social media when we have them.“ i think we just need to be a bit patient and wait for further updates...
