Haven't dropped in here for a little bit, got caught up on some of the watch forums. Thought I would stop in and share what I have been up to







There have also been a few Seiko's added and also a Ocean7 LM-1 LE. There are a few others I have my eyes on but I think I have been put on hold for a little bit by my better half

Some great watches - love the Stowa in particular. How big is that watch?

Is the Marine an Original or Auto?

That Fortis Chrono looks pretty cool!

Both the Stowa and the Fortis are nice wathes. I love blued "pointers" on crisp white dials. Are your Seikos japanese market auto's? I find mine a 23j to be amazing value, and very low key. Am even considdering a GrandSeiko, as opposed to a submariner. Speed

Do you have anny pictures of the rear? I asume as the movement is uppgraded it is visible ... in fact if anny of these are glass bottom, pictures would be most appreciated. I find the tunas to be quite unique, but not my "cup of tea". Speed

Funny you should ask, I was just getting ready to post it on one of the watch forums The B-42 with it's Valjoux 7750 movement

After getting a carbon fiber strap for my PVD Marina Militare clone, I realized that the goddamn thing was sewn in. So, with the help of an array of tools and craftmanship, here's my watch on its new strap. Thoughts?
