  1. Today's watch: Otron Marquis ES101/ES103



    An Otron what? It's a quartz watch which my father bought in America for $99.99. The design of the watch is strongly 1980s but I'm not sure when my father bought it: It could have been anywhere from the 1980s to the early 1990s.

  2. Yesterday's watch: Seiko Spirit SCVS003 6R15-00A0 (again)

    Yup, the same watch again. Sorry... I usually do change my watch every day but sometimes, y'know, I like a watch so much I wear it for three days in a row. ;-)
  3. Individual pushers or crown wind only for perpetual calendars - that is the question

    Learningtofly posted a wonderful post, with beautiful pictures as ever, about his new JLC Master Perpetual Calendar.

  5. Today's watch: Seiko Spirit SCVS003 6R15-00A0



    Today we have a Seiko Spirit, specifically a SCVS003. This is the black dial version with the hacking and handwinding 6R15 movement and the sort-of Jubilee style bracelet.

    A short digression about Spirits, SCVSs and SARBs: The SCVS-prefix 6R15-based mechanical Spirits have been discontinued and have been replaced by the SARB-prefix 6R15-based mechanical range. The SARBs are listed by Seiko Japan ...
