Chris served his apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery over 30 years ago working for a local builder and attending St Albans Building College to achieve his advanced City and Guilds. Having completed his apprenticeship Chris gained several years experience working on larger construction projects, with a particular interest in cut and pitched roofs. He continued to attend building college on a part time basis extending his construction knowledge. Moving on from this Chris set up his own small building business which involved working for domestic customers in addition to carrying out commercial work.
About 15 years ago Chris set up his workshop for wood work which enabled him to undertake more joinery work involving the making of staircases, doors, windows, fitted wardrobes etc, supplementing and extending the scope of his building work.
The dial, though, is the real star here. And while Rolex Day-Date 40 replica watches uk nomenclature of ‘olive green’ might technically be correct, it fails to capture the full splendour. It’s a far cry from the bright daylight green of the ‘Hulk’ Submariner, and much closer to a rich moss. This is one of the most elegant executions of the Rolex Day-Date replica watches flagship watch I’ve seen in a long time, and a perfectly fitting tribute to the mighty President’s 60th year.
It’s no real surprise that Rolex – the world’s most reputable brand – is a class act. For me this was proven when I saw the beautiful new green-dialled Day-Date 40 on the first day of this year’s Baselworld fair. That class factor was cemented when I discovered the watch was available in stores on the very same day of its release. Not many brands could pull off a move that smooth. This is a twilight green, dark, mysterious and, thanks to the sunburst finish, infinitely captivating. It also happens to be fake hublot signature colour, so all the more worthy of a celebratory Rolex Replica Watch.
About 9 years ago Chris found himself leaning against a wood turning lathe in a friends workshop, not being too familiar with the workings of the lathe he asked if he could have a go, to which John, his friend duly obliged, sparking something of a passion for Chris. From this Chris joined the Herts and Beds Woodturning Club where he met professional production turner Gary Rance from whom Chris received lessons for a few years. This has enabled Chris to extend his woodworking repertoire to include turned work.
Chris has particularly enjoyed projects such as the making and installing of staircases that have involved bespoke hand turned spindles and newels, bringing together all of Chris’s wood working skills.
Chris’s passion for wood work continues, and he is currently taking lessons in wood carving.
