You sir have fine taste haha. I have been waiting for the in-house black bay for a while now and now that it's finally out its back to 2nd on my list. It's a long list and will probably keep growing haha


Thanks and I love the new line of Tudors announced at Baselworld this year especially the Black Bay Bronze and the 36mm one.  Collecting watches can be time consuming and expensive and that's why I'm back to collecting Clacks!

Both of you guys have great collections from what I've seen. I'm hoping I'll be able to buy my first luxury watch for my 20th this summer, thinking about getting a Speedmaster.


Hey thanks!  :)   And Speedy is a nice watch.  Omega, Tag, Breitling, etc those were my first love.  Don't forget to post some pics if you decide to get it.

Yeah, I'm looking to move up from the mid range watches I have now; Squale 1545, Hamilton Jazzmaster, and SARB033. I always steal my dad's Sea Dweller when I get the chance. :))

Haha you dad has excellent taste!   SD is a really cool watch.  I'm looking to add one to my collection later on (SD4K).

I love the SD, it has the classic Rolex diver look but not everyone has one like the Submariner.

It'll be the most I've ever spent on a single item! :eek:

Once it comes time to make the purchase I'm sure I'll come here to go over the options.

Yup, Subs and Datejusts are everywhere plus cyclops just scream Rolex!   I usually try to pick ones that fly under the radar (without cyclops, no polished center links, etc).

Thanks! Same here, the face on the Alpinist is ideal for me, the pictures don't do it justice. Actually, I just like green things, which probably explains why Nuclear Data is my favorite key set.

Seikos are excellent watches for the price. The SARB033/035 or SARB017 are great slightly above entry level watches. The Seiko 5 line is good if you want a cheap first mechanical watch. A lot of people really like their dive watches too.

Nafs_asp has some good recommendations with the Seiko Sarb line.  The Sarb033 and the Sarb035 are the same watch but the 033 is a black dial and the 035 is an off-white dial.  Photos of the 017 are in this thread. 

If you want divers there is the Seiko SKX007 and the Seiko Monster,  I have a photo in this thread of my Monster. 

There is also Orient watches which are another Japanese manufacture and all their movements are in house as well, I have a photo of mine earlier in this thread.

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

A while back I posted a photo of my SKX on an Obris Morgan rubber strap. Well... it seems that strap is made of natural rubber and I learned I have a latex allergy. bummer...

google good independent watch makers in your area and get it to them.
they might just demagnetize it, or even regulate it.
it doesn't look broken since its still ticking :)

After a while deciding what introductory luxury watch I wanted for my 20th birthday I decided to buy a 35mm Nomos Tangente. Found a perfect condition Wempe 125th anniversary edition with box, papers, and service history on WUS.



The silver dial is hard to photograph, it has a matte finish but reacts to light like it has a sunburst effect. The dial changes from bright slightly metallic white to a medium grey depending on the light.



I didn't think I'd like the gold movement as much as the normal movement but in the end I prefer the finishing on the gold movement.

People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the purchase, I'd highly recommend the brand to anyone. I'm surprised the watches don't retail for more. If something like the NC meetup happens again I'll make sure to bring the Tangente with me. :)

I love the smaller Nomos cases! You should try one on, the classic sizing looks so much better than some of the 42-45mm+ watches being made today.

Current mechanical watch collection, I also have a small quartz seiko from the 80s.
