Sure, I like to see them too.  But without any comment or context, it doesn't make any sense.  Unless it's simply about putting posts on enough pages to get the traffic up to your blog/shopfront.

 

I like watch pics too, of course...maybe I'm being mean.

I value wrist shots, it helps me consider watches I might not have considered before, and yeah I suppose I could goggle them, but I prefer to see them here in case it sparks questions that I can then ask directly to the poster. To me there is a lot of value, even if it is just one wrist shot with no words. I'd appreciate if you'd continue to post @SteveH35.

Hey would have to be the worst salesman in the world posting pics with no comments? Do you gentlemen!

+1.  I always liked Steve's videos he posted and if Mimo didn't mention it, I would have thought the sig link was to his videos.  Plus different watches to at least draw some discussion is nice.  I like Steve's videos.

huh? Steve, if I quit every time someone irritated me I'd never be on SF. smack.gif
Probably most of us think that we don't get enough love when we post, or meanies say bad things, or even worse - just ignore our insightful remarks.

Anyway, it looks like you're 2 to 1 con and pro, so far.

BTW, your site wouldn't load when I just went to it.

I appreciate the support. I've been a watch collector for 13 years and only got into the business because I was a collector. I primarily run watch companies (including being one of the first employees of MB&F and bringing them to North America) and consulting. My site is a side thing and I generally make private sales for a handful of big time collectors. I'm not a dealer trolling for business on SF. That being said, my credibility is important to me and it's not even remotely worth these hassles just to share some fun pictures on here. I'm sure the people who really care about my stuff follow me on Insta, read my site, watch my youtube reviews, or have read my pieces on Hodinkee or wherever else.

 

Dealing with some other bs today, so perhaps I overreacted, but in general who needs this :censored:

Steve, I apologise if I've misread you.  I'm also in a bad mood today.

 

(And anyway, who gives a damn what I think?)

Congrats on your wedding!!!  Your wife also chose a really nice wedding present.  My wife gave me an Explorer 2 for our wedding and its been on every major trip we have taken since our wedding.  Wishing you many wonderful years together with your wife and your watch!  :cheers:

Congrats - awesome choice. I got the black face but I can see the attractions of the white. The orange hand really pops.

Edit; what Dino said - great travel watch. Mine's always with me on my travels.

Alright dudes, just to get the taste out of our mouths, here's a wrist shot from today. Full disclosure, this watch is for sale, but it's still mine, on my wrist, and a dope watch. Plus I'm considering keeping it. The Datograph is probably my overall favorite watch from a big brand of the last 20 years.

 

Also watches do happen to be a subject I know something about, so I'm happy to answer any and all questions. I've seen and handled almost every watch you can think of. How's that for valuable to the forum @mimo:cheers:

Great stuff, Steve. Lovely watch.
