    Is yours the only one here on TZ-UK?

    To explain, I’m just trying to tease out and make visible some of the more special (and dare I say it, less ‘me-too’) watch models that are owned by forum members.

    In reality, the question is, ‘what watch(es) do you own that you’re willing to bet no-one else on the forum has?’

    I don’t believe I have that many at all, but will start by trying these two:

    1. The Dornblüth Kal 04.0. Unusual because it is smaller that Dornblüth’s standard offerings, at 38mm. Only 75 were produced I believe, 50 in steel and the rest in gold. I know a few have passed through the forum, but is this the only one that has remained...





    2. The JLC Master Hometime. I don’t know why I think that no-one else has one here on TZ-UK, I could well be wrong!






    What do you own that you think might be the only one here on the forum?

    A few rarer variants of Seiko 7A38 ....

    I did post this in another similarly themed thread a couple of years ago:

    I'd love to see another one - ideally in better condition. Would gladly pay a Tenner.
    More recently I've acquired these:

    Attias (re-branded Kamatz)



    Orient J39701-70 1985 Indianapolis 500 version




    .... and the blingy borderline fugly FRED Force 10 7A38:

    I haven't seen any other examples of these posted anywhere on any other watch forum / Instagram, whatever (let alone TZ-UK).

    Schofield Signalman GMT PR. I’ve seen the occasional Schofield model posted but not sure if anyone on here also owns one of the 300 of these produced.

    A few possibles that I cannot recall having seen posted at least,

    SBDX005


    Dime MD Edition


    Meridian Prime


    SBGH257


    CWC Tactical Diver


    If G-Shocks count I could probably add quite a few more.

    It's not special or rare but I doubt if too many / anyone off the forum have one of these, just going by the Friday threads and general lack of mentions of the brand in general: Muhle Terrasport IV GMT.

    I think o have a couple. Two of them
    Sourced from this forum...

    Heuer Audi sport case but full blown lemania 5100 arrangement and with lemania signed dial! I have only seen another 5 around the web...


    And the forum finds;

    Kobold might have had troubles lately but this is the pinnacle of a tool watch!
    Screw down pushers, valjoux 7754 based gmt chronograph with 24h day night indicator with a light titanium case!

    The excelsior park with a well documented forum story!

    I think I've the only one of these, and there's probably a good reason for that.

    I've had a quick look through my cheapy watch pics and I doubt anyone has one of these.

    In fact the cheaper end is where you are more likely to find one of a kind type watches as many would have been discarded over the years whereas Omegas, Rolexes etc will always be around.

    BTW I have since polished up the Diamatics crystal and it looks even fabber!

    Seiko Diamatic with colour coded solid bracelet.






    Doxa built quartz branded Aqualung for US Divers.





    Olympic branded diver in TAG case.




    Mad NOS '70's auto I bought a good few years ago. Must try to wear it one day.

    I've seen the blue dial variant a couple of times, fleetingly, but in the six years I've had this, I've never seen another, on any of the forums I've belonged to.

    I've got quite a few individual models which I don't think anyone owns quite the same, but as far as brands I'm almost certain I'm the only one here with either of these...

    I believe there's quite a low chance of anyone else having one of these on here....

    Thanks Neil, it is very nice, sadly the original bracelet its on is super rare and too small for me, I should get a nice vintage style leather for it and wear it more.

    I bought my Archimede Deck watch from SC in June 2015. Mine was ordered by the first owner with the upgraded movement with decoration and higher beat rate (21,6000) which makes it a rarer example. Just wound it for an early doors pub visit!

    That's quite possibly my favourite watch on the forum.

    I think there is a pretty fair chance I am the only Chronoswiss Lunar owner on TZ:

    Possibly the only owner of a black dial GS Chrono too:

    I am pretty sure at least two of these three are unique on TZ-UK:


    Grand Seiko SBGE021



    Grand Seiko SBGE029



    A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk

    This Mareoscope has been through a few owners here but I don't recall seeing any others.




    And I've not seen another stop2go Gottardo on these tracks.




    Not so sure about the A829s.




    But I'm pretty sure that this one is unique.

    Some really nice watches in this thread! I'm going to try this oddly specific Hanhart, I've only ever seen one more for sale and it wasn't on here...!

    Seiko 7T42-6A00. I got this for my 18th birthday in the early 1990’s.

    You should have to pay a fine into the fundraiser if someone can show their same watch on this thread :D
    I'm pretty sure I'm the only one here with one of these:

    Dunno, for me it would be easier to show watches that other members might/do have. Almost all of mine seem pretty unique to me.
