Helloms - that's the Meister Chronoscope, right?  I think (re. OM's previous question) this is one of those that uses a Seiko movement (the "Meister" and "Erhard Junghans" I've read is correct) - do you know if that's right?  +1 to CKDR's comment on the subdials.  It's a great shape and those smooth sunken dials really emphasise it.  A lot of good value from Junghans it seems; tempting!

 

Flake - if you're out buying a baller suit, I guess there's no need to be shy!  That's a lot of bling. :)

 

Yes, its a Meister Chronoscope.  Junghans lists it as J880.1 as a movement which I believe is a modified ETA movement.  Let me know if I am wrong :)

 
Yes, I agree its a great value for what it offers.  I originally wanted to get their Max Bill but then saw this and decided on a slightly modern design.  Very happy with it

Very nice, rn. A good knife is a must have. I have a couple myself. Maybe Ill post up with my watches sometime, too.

watches = good

Kate Upton = MOAR gooder

knives = not so good, less this thread should turn into an EDC thing

rnguy - the Spyderco is a perfectly functional and serviceable tool - but your JLC occupies a much higher realm in the watch universe than does your knife.

 

I don't have many watch / knife photos (though plenty of each on their own).  But in this pic, there is both a watch and a knife.

For mechanical watches, I generally prefer no-date dials.  That JLC is one of the few that I would make an exception for (preferably the older 37mm MC model due to my skinny wrists).

^ A nice poor man's version of that is the Seiko SNX121K, shown below on a Tan strap:

What about Kate Upton wearing a watch and wielding a knife?

rnguy - the watch is nothing special (to say the least) - my Invicta beater.

Hmmm, I'd have to see a pic of that before passing judgment.

My apologies RP, I didn't know that was you in that pic. I thought you had just posted a pic of some random dood working on a big ass blade.

Thanks - I actually had that Seiko, and then sold it several years ago.  It's a real beauty, looked much more expensive than it was, and was probably the one my wife liked the best of the few watches I've owned.

Ha, I bought one after I saw AlanC's original post. Still have mine though; it's my 'dress' watch.

Iirc, AlanC told me that Tan strap is a Hadley Roma, but I never got around to getting one.

Well, she is not wearing a watch here.  And nor is she the one wielding a knife.  But a quick Google search of "Kate Upton knife" yielded this somewhat surreal video, where Kate gets stabbed by a banana in the CHEST:

I think she may have worn a watch at some point in this video. I THINK I see watches. Close enough?
