You're a dark horse knowing what a Rover 45 heater looks like.
Now if you had said P5 or 6 I would have understood.
We had some absolutely epic company cars. Rover 25, Sherpa, Maestro, Metro van.

Went to get the LWB Sherpa one morning to find the window smashed and the radio taken from the dash. But it was so sh!t they’d left it on the drivers seat.

Bit of a let down from the glory days. There was a picture in the boss’s office of her Dad with his DB4 and the 2 sales reps ETypes.

Had a little disaster this morning walking back from the Bakery with my watch falling off my wrist on to the pavement.
Gutted as it now has road rash on the bezel all through a pin breaking.
Gutted as it's my daily wearer taking it off everytime I'm working so was pretty much unmarked.
Need to source some pins now.

That's a sod. It can probably be re-finished. Good luck with the pins but I would assume that, much like a chain, the rest are going to be on their last legs as well

Ouch, sympathies for that. Unlucky to have a spring bar break. They are easily available, just need to get the right diameter as well as width.

You can get replacement bezel inserts for about £40, if that would help.

I tell myself the scratches and dents are memories, one day you’ll look back and remember what you were doing when it happened.

My plan is to replace all the pins as I have worn it daily since 2015.
It's the bezel that's marked the insert is still mint.
