    Thank you! Its functionality I suppose... Chrono and GMT in a lovely titanium 200m WR case.

    Will get used to dial colour, but hate that marker at 3 o’clock. Pointless imo. Hand is reaching chapter ring just fine.

    Clasp is nothing special, but I knew that.

    I have been after a tank style watch for a while and this rather nice specimen turned up today for my birthday!

    Very small by today’s standards, but those with dinner plate wrist watches are missing out....

    Very nice. I’ve been prevaricating over some similar ones for a couple of years. That looks great and I bet a decent quality movement as well.

    Well this arrived courtesy of draftsmann. Absolutely top notch quality 6309. Can’t believe it’s a 35 yr old watch. Will have to upgrade the strap to an uncle Seiko at some point. (And sorry for the naff conference band...)

    This landed today, to me its the perfect speedie, good size, versatile and with great symmetry to the dial.

    The recessed lume is lovely and it somehow gives the watch a more classical look than the applied indices that I usually favour on a dial.

    Its on the bracelet but it came on this silicone strap



    I then put it on a Hirsch Heritage which suits the watch perfectly.

    I got this last week, so far it’s holding up well and keeping great time. A vintage Revue, 42mm lugless.

    Really like that Hirsch Heritage strap (and the watch, of course!). Might see if I can get one for my Speedie Pro.

    This arrived a few weeks ago. I made the right choice with the 1200T, I trend to smaller watches and this one is perfectly sized for my taste. Only let-down was the clasp, not befitting the rest of the watch/BOR.

    Congratulations, looks worthy of draining the watch fund!

    I haven't had an Omega in the fold for a while and I fancied a bit of blue, then this popped into my field of vision





    An AT 2504.80, recently serviced by Omega so warranty until 2021, older 2500 movement so lovely slim case, full set with quality Omega wooden box (although the card holder is still one of those rubberised jobbies, shedding bits of tat everywhere) and a gorgeous sunburst blue dial.

    I used to have the 39mm Railmaster and always felt it was too big because of the thin bezel. This is 36mm and a perfect size for me. It wears slightly larger than my Explorer, which I hoped it would.

    The only problem is the same problem I had with the Railmaster, the bracelet is slightly too tight or too loose. I've ordered an extra half link from Omega in the hope that once a full link is replaced with two halves, it should be job done.

    After wearing for two days it's gained 2 seconds. That'll do for me

    Beautiful leaf hands (including the seconds hand) on this 1950’s Langendorf Watch Company (Lanco)...


  16. #7266
    Picked this up last night.
    It was a toss up between this and the white dial.
    I think Rodium dial is more versatile??

    I really like this model- congratulations. This may be one of the most versatile watches out there. It’s hard to think of a situation it wouldn’t fit into.

    Very nice. If you get tired of it, I’ll have it!

    There's alot to like with that one, and yes the hands are lovely. Funny enough the seconds hand is near identical to my recent Shorokhoff and is a small barely noticeable detail I really enjoy.

    I am over the moon with this IWC Portuguese 3716 that I got this week. I've been after a 3714 for a while but this limited edition is particularly nice imho- the dial especially. The fact it is an IWC in house movement makes it a little more special as well.

    I put it on a Barton quick release strap (how good are THEY by the way?!) and like the look

    Love the Portuguese chrono. Forgive my ignorance but what’s the difference with this LE from a standard model apart from the case back?

    The main difference for me is the movement is an entirely in-house column wheel chronograph- I baulked a bit when paying a great deal of money for a valjoux movement.

    The other difference is subtle- the dial process was apparently quite different on the 3716 giving the impression of lacquer. Impossible to show in pictures but it is a beautiful dial!

    Just purchased this from the forum - only 3 months old and as new. Better in real life than pictures can show - the face really catches the light beautifully.

    That is a nice shade of green - definitely one for when the sun is out!

    Cheers Junaid. Certainly the face is very 'lustrous'. I always find a new watch so distracting for the first day or two so will probably be getting less work done today than normal.

    Thanks guys - I wasn't sure until I actually saw it but it's lovely in the flesh (to my eye at least). However, I think a green strap might verge on the overkill.....

    After a while without a Sinn in the collection, I picked up this lovely 2011 example of a UX SDR from Kiloman at the weekend.
    It’s in fine condition for an 8 year-old tool watch and as far as I know is on the original battery, so I might see how much longer it runs before I send it off to Sinn for refuelling & oil change.
    I believe Manxdiver was a previous owner too. In the photo it’s on a Da Luca NATO, and I’ve popped on my U-212 class tie pin - they’re the class of submarine that use the same grade or steel as the U-series watches from Sinn.

    Arrived today thanks to VinceR, Helm Khuraburi. For the price point the quality is outstanding, Seiko should take a look at this bracelet to see how it should be done on the cheaper models. Going to make a great summer watch, a nice change from my usual black face and black bezel combo.

    Lovely

    I missed out on one recently on here due to deliberating and not initially having the funds (ended up selling a watch of mine). I'm on the list at DMR but suspect it will be a good while.

    From SC, came today. Replaces an SDBX017 I sold last year. Ceramic and sapphire is what this watch needed but wish it still had a lume pip.

    Having sold a few watches recently and built up a bit of a “war chest” I collected this today.
    After looking in vain for a private seller I bit the bullet and bought from everyone’s favourite grey dealer.
    Got a decent chunk off the advertised price so cannot complain.
    Absolutely bloody gorgeous.

    That is beautiful. Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth. Usually when you grit your teeth and pay a bit over the odds you're less likely to have a nightmare down the road.

    Very nice indeed, I’m on a bit of a collection phase with this type of watch, love a vintage, just too damn small for me but great for the wife.

    So is that what polished titanium looks like, stunning.
