Thread: Watches that make you smile!

  1. #1

    Watches that make you smile!

    I have a modest collection but one that has been with me the longest and I hope I never part with her.

    My Sinn Arktis has joined me for this dreary weekend and that blue dial gets me every time!

    Do you have one or more like that?

    Best,

    Ben

    Too many. But these two most.

    MM300 has a spell over me. Nice and shiny. Big and bold. Always like to wear it.



    And Seiko Padi. So much to love from the shape of the case to the dial.

    Watches that I _do NOT_ buy makes my wife smile.

    Owning 4 Rolex sports watches forces me to adapt to some kind of monotony. But this gives a bit of variation and the dial and finish really impresses me.

    Love it, just the perfect watch. There's a real satisfaction to having such a quality watch which doesn't get any attention. Let's you be the only one to enjoy it.

    The goofy, computer readable, font used on the indices Oris 1965 diver always bring a smile to my face when I look at it.

    The way the dial colour changes in different light conditions on my Zenith always brings a satisfying smile to my face.

    Omega LCD Constellation Time Computer, think the TC 1 came out in 1972. Mine is the TC3 which I think came out about 1974.

    Press the button once for hours/minutes, press again for date/month and 3 times for day, without pressing the button the screen is blank. Early versions required a magnet to set the time, mine just requires an inset button pressing.

    Case is 40mm x 20mm and very comfortable to wear.

    This one. Mostly because it is quite unique in my collection. It has a simple beauty to it, the shape of the hands is different, and elegant. Itís wearable at 38mm case diameter and the hand-wound movement looks good from the back too!
