Those look pretty darn enticing.

I'm still enjoying this one but my 39mm explorer 1 gets 70% of my wrist time and my SubC LV like 5% (though it's my favorite).

Mine cost $550. Took about 8 weeks. I bought this strap while waiting for it and as soon as I made it home strap was switched

Grand Seiko is better than Rolex.

 

Panerai owners have small penises.

 

IWC uses Selitta movements.

 

Omega hasn't made anything good since 1967.

 

Breitlings are for paedophiles.

plus

Date numbers

Bi-metallic watches

Lazy typography

The limited number of really TWAT approved watches - RO, Nautilus, Sub, GMT, Reverso

Buying for investment

Your only chance to buy a watch worn on the moon an it is not even an Omega:

"The watch worn by Commander Dave Scott during the Apollo 15 moon mission is set to go to auction this October.

The sale of a timepiece worn by an astronaut is a rare occurrence as the standard Omega chronographs issued to the select dozen spacemen who have stepped foot on the Moon have all been officially owned by NASA, making them government property, and are now housed within government-owned organisations.

An exception to this is the Bulova Chronograph Worn by Scott as he saluted the American flag at the start of EVA-3. It will hold the title of being the only lunar surface watch in private hands when it is auctioned off at the RR Auction Space and Aviation Auction, which is taking place October 15 to October 22."

^ I was reading about that somewhere just a day or two ago. 

 

Apparently, he was wearing two watches - the Bulova and a Speedy Pro - as the extra-vehicular excursions using the lunar buggy were going to mean that the astronauts would be away from the landing module for some time and so he wore two watches just in case one broke or started running slow as, of course, they didn't want to risk running low on air supplies.

Looking good. If a SS ceramic GMT II with Coke bezel and jubilee bracelet ever came out, I'd get that in a heartbeat.

I was thinking of putting this on B&S if there was interest. It's a Heuer manufactured watch for Sears under the Tradition brand from the 1960s. It's not getting any wrist time so I'd figure either post it here or put it back into the drawer for junior when the time comes.



Analog Shift has a similar Zodiac for sale. Their description guilds the lily a bit.

Not a fan of the light blue outlining numerals though..throws the colour scheme off

nos 16600 for $6900 or a new blnr for next purchase? can't really decide b/w the 2.

my current thinking is it may be more difficult to find an nos sd down the road.

Seems awfully cheap for a NOS 16600. That should command a higher premium than that. If we are talking USD of course.
