    Show your Rolex.

    Loving that 1803! So classy on a brown leather. :-)

    Because sometimes I need to know the day names in Spanish!

    I had a sterile dial Parnis once. It was a good honest watch.

    Bob in the chip shop said it might be a one off prototype.
    I wish I had kept it now.
    Unfortunately the Breitling rubber strap I was going to use was lost in the post.
    That happens quite a lot apparently.

    What a pair! 5513 is the Grail!

    Thanks - yes the 5513 was one that I had lusted after for a while and when this one came up recently I jumped at the chance, has all the character and patina I was looking for.

    The 16610 is a Y serial so one of the last with the drilled lugs.

    Completely agree - stunning collection Bob, you must be very proud of them. Top watch for me - the Daytona, closely followed by the Red Sub.

    Cheers that man, If you took the Daytona out of the equation for me it would be a spin up between the 5513 Gilt and the 1675 Gilt, both superb examples in the flesh and somehow leave the Red Sub a little bit wanting, possibly due to their rarety!

    That Daytona is stunning. The rest aren't too shabby either!
    Lovely collection. Slightly jealous over here...

    Some great watches here!

    Used to have this one (totally regret selling it, but it funded another purchase back then):


    This belongs to a friend of mine, gave it to me to wear for a while:


    And still have this one:

    My GMT 16750, purchased new in July 1986.




    I bought this one in 1994 or so, but sold it a few years ago.

    Also looks like the dial of the red sub has turned blue, never seen that before. Bezel [inlay] turning blue over time isn't that uncommon, but beautiful.

    Red sub bezel inlay has certainly faded but the dial is still black

    I've been very fortunate to have owned 3...
    First up the Milgauss...



    Still miss this one. Think I'll have to get another.

    Then the Hulk...



    A keeper.

    Then the AirKing...



    Lovely. Can't remember why I parted with this one.

    If we're looking backward, this was lovely but ultimately, too small;



    Never really got on with this one;



    Or this one;



    Loved this one at first but it always played 2nd fiddle to my 16600;



    This one was just too bloody big! Although I'm tempted to try one again...

    Loving these pics, the DJ2 looks superb.

    Definitely look back. Let's see what you have owned, borrowed not got on with regret selling and will never sell!

    No pics I'm afraid as I still can't figure out how to on an iPad with the revised Flickr app - used to be a doddle.

    (Just noticed the other number 3's - check my post count!)
