A rather old, rather beaten up Seiko Kenetic still runs though it needs a strap and new pins - but haveing broken six sets, I've given up on spring pins, so I'm drilling out the sides to permantly rivit in a couple of bits of steel rod... it's been on my desk about 4 years... poor thing.

My first watch.  Not been working on it for four years, it's been sitting there stairing at me with sad eyes for four years.  Problem is I'm so used to working with silver/gold that whenever I do anything with it, I snap bits like twigs for nothing but a few fractions of milimeters depth.

On the plus side once it's done I'll never be able to break it the same way again.  I might give it (yet!) another go tomorrow, have some lovely leather just waiting to make the strap.

My current day to day driver is a Skagen 803xltrb. Carbon fibre and titanium. An awesome thin piece and is surprisingly strong considering how dinky it is.







Also currently having my 1904 Waltham traveler restored. Brilliant pocket watch that I got for a song on Ebay.

I have many watches. Will try to post some pictures but some of them are this:

Nixon - The Time Teller





Nixon - The mellor



Wenger - Field Military



Carhartt - Military watch





My watches are exactly like the ones that appear on those photos.

I have also a gold Cyma I inherited from my grandfather. I think it's the best watch in terms of quality and brand I have.

If I had to chose one of the watches I pictured it would be "The Mellor" because it's my favorite.

Any of you is right handed and wear his watches on the right wrist? I hope I'm not the only one.

You may notice that I love military themed watches... :D

Currently don't have anything too nice. I do enjoy Nixons and Fossils for they're looks and price. Rolex and Corum are my favourite watches.

Question for everyone. What do you all prefer as the material of the wrist band?
Me? I like metal, such as steel. Don't care for leather, plastic or clothlike.

These are the two watches I have on my wishlist.

There's some nice watches in here.  I don't wear one, haven't for years - it throws my balance off when typing.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I really love Fossil watches - great aesthetic at a super affordable price point. I've got a couple but my current daily and favourite is the DE-5009 (not my photos):

thanks yeah fossil are awesome as well, I think i like the mechanisms more then the faces on most watches lol. i guess i have my grandfather to blame for that he got me into watches as a kid and explained everything about them. when i was younger i never realised how crazy his collection was but now im older and i know the value and rarity of some of his pieces i know he has been collecting for a long time.

I was never able to think of affording anything similar until i was an adult and now i hope to someday have a collection as big as his when im that age lol.

the first watch i ever got was from his personal collection when i turned 16. was a vintage omega 1948

(not my photo)

still a few pieces he hasn't shown me in his collection, he likes to bring out a new one to show me each birthday its like a little tradition lol.

im sure he has a few more crazy rare gems up his sleeve to suprise me.

Anyway, I've decided on my 3rd watch for my collection, a 1963 Seagull Air Force recommended by Stonesturd on BT. It's a wonderfully priced mechanical watch and is an absolute beaut!

I'm confident it is. Quality control is a lot tighter than normally found on Russian and Chinese mechanical watches, and a 21 zuan (jewel :p) movement at that price point is brilliant. I can't wait to give it a try. I believe there are also a few different band colours that come with it, I know there's a black, which will look very sharp with it.

And yes, I'm definitely going for the display back case, it really is a lovely movement to show off. My only worry about the movement is the availability of parts. Despite being Chinese built, I have a feeling that the parts used aren't so generic. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Wow Rayuki, I know a little about watches and that PP is just insane, hoping to pick one up in the distant future.

I was looking at the Calatrava range but found the price to be a bit high for now and something I should be looking to buy a few years from now (around 30's)
I have 2 Tissots, a Titanium PR50 and an original Titanium T-Touch and also a Longines Sports Conquest for some reason...impulse buy a few years back.

Next watch to hunt down is currently the JLC master thin 39mm moonphase in rose gold.
another few months of savings and we'll be there hehe

As much as I like minimalist watches, there are a lot of times I need a chronograph, so I'm going to have to get one. And the seagull 1963 looks perfect as the face is still very minimal.

I have an eco-drive and I really like it. Got it from Costco at a very reasonnable price. The only thing that I dont like is that I keep pressing on a button that changes the country so I always need to put it back to the right time adjustment. Takes a second tought.

Heh, I'd forgotten all about this.  I'm about 90% done; I've drilled out the lugs to 1.5mm and countersunk the outsides - SS is a B**** to work with, I've made and seated two 1.5mm silver rivets - I'm a jeweller, metal of choice, I've cut and sewn the leather strap and sewn the watch to the strap. 

I've still to make the clasp - a silver slider, so it's a two part friction clasp a 2mm ID tube with a .8mm slot cut down its length and opposite a .8mm rail soldered radially, and a 2mm round wire with a .8mm rail soldered radially...

I'll pop up some pictures when I'm done.

As a child I was wearing some digital Q&Q :-) After I have destroyed it in swimming pool (it should be water proof but sealing wasn't changed and there was probably some mistake after last battery change) I have no watches for several years; just using phone for time. Half year ago I "had to" choose watches for my birthday, so after very long choosing procedure I choose Traser Super Sport Chrono:

Nice thread!  ;D

Been addicted to watches for all my life, my last "area of interest" is outdoor watches...

Below are my newest additions to the collection:

Suunto Ambit


Garmin Fenix

Unfortunately I had to use some 'stock pictures' as I do not have either of them on my wrist right now...  :rolleyes:

My holy grail is however something completely different, a Rolex Submariner  :-X :


But first I have to check my money tree in the garden  :( Checked: again no "fruit" on the tree...

Picture as promised. 



Sooner than it would have been thanks to Alessandro twisting my arm to get my camera out, take the EOS->MD lensed converter off my prime, put it onto the body, take the 1:1 extension tube off my macro and put it onto the converter.  Take the photo(s) and borrow my GF's laptop (400D doesn't play nicely with xubuntu) upload the image onto photubucket on a horribly slow connection that rejects the upload 4 times, then post here (back on my trusty little netbook...)



And after all that it won't load (or at least doesn't for me) so here's a direct link.

It's the Mk1 not right yet but a big step in the right direction; the vertical stitches over the pins that hold the watch to the strap - they'll be two rows of horizontal stitches next time, it'll be about 5-6mm wider - perhaps as much as 10mm - the clasp is built to take this into account i.e. it's wider than the strap at the moment, the circular cut out on the back (for the quite deep watch-back this has) I'll either cut after the watch is fixed in place - as it was slightly off-centre and now oval - or omit entirely, it may be black leather with electric blue or hot-rod red thread.

Final choice on leather is pending.

I have a Timex Weekender on right now I got as a gift, and a Lucien Piccard I bought a couple years ago back home. I also have a bunch of ****ty ones I bought in an eBay lot, and a Citizen quartz I need to get a band for. But I mostly wear the Timex now. I really like the brand. I want to get an Orient Bambino and a vintage Omega Seamaster at some point in the future though. But alas, I do not have $500 to blow right now.
Got a smaller board with white ALPS, Montereys, Cherry Blues, Reds, or Clears you'd like to offload?  Shoot me a PM. Looking for a grey Leopold FC700R in particular.

Wyse buy colors were GSY for the dark grey, GBA for the light grey, and BBI for the fonts.

I kinda want a presidential watch like this one.  And it's not painfully expensive.

I love watches, but I don't like spending too much money on them. Here's the part of the collection I have here in Norway. My favs are the Invicta and Fossil.
