    SOTC

    My humble collection of watches i have picked up over the last 2 years or so. Looking for just 1 more watch this year so its unlikely to change much. I was photographing them for insurance purposes so decided to do a few on a black piece of acrylic.

    You’ve been to the Tony school of photography? That is a lovely set. I am particularly drawn to the Parmigiani Tonda Metrographe. The Omega variant is also refreshing.

    What do you prefer most?

    Martyn, yeah i like a dark moody image..lo. I like the Parmigiani as its the most dressy style i have. I get most use out of my Grand Seiko though as its a nice everyday watch. My G Shock only gets worn when im away on photography trips(wildlife). Im looking at an AP Ghost or dare i say it the Code 11.59 even though many hate it, it will be another dressy style but not sure how much i would get to use it.cheers.

    "Humble". Your definition and mine differ significantly.

    Lovely collection. Particularly like the blue SMP.

    And your photography is top notch.

    not enough time photograph them all so a bit of a rush job, loads of stupid mistakes like not dusting off the acrylic, not properly cleaning the watches and should have set the positions of the hands a bit better and i need more practice with the 2 lights i was using this time. Thanks for commenting.

    Great collection, really like the Parmigiani and GS.

    Cracking bit of photography but the dog definitely wins the show on your Flickr!

    Thanks! The Crafter Blue strap was needed as the original rubber strap would be too small for my large wrist size. Works and fits well with the watch but still like it on its bracelet.

    Good shots and a pretty fine collection. Not a standard tz-uk collection by any means and all the better for it!

    The Zenith is a watch i had to save for so it meant more for it. No denying the engineering behind it, when that hand sweeps round the dial once a second its fantastic. It wears true to size i think but it is a big watch and would need a wrist size of at least 7" to look good and be comfortable. It will stay with me and wont be sold.

    Something a little different from the normal black/blue dials and can look dark or light depending on the lighting. Very comfy on the wrist.

    A great and varied collection, that is the straps/bracelets as well as the pieces. Like the Tudor and the zenith.
