I was bored, and went on a little ebay buying spree for cheap and unusual watches. (Pics from ebay.) HMT Indian army, issued watch, restored dial (this one's arrived, and the luminescence is strong enough to make me worry about radiation): And another variant: Soviet Russian Raketa, for weak-sighted, NOS export version, reminds me of Panerai (sorry, all resident Paneristi : I got this not very useful wrist compass as a bonus along with the Raketa: Fifties Oris: Ca. 1940 Record, probably a private-purchase military-type watch: Another two exotics; they seem to be Indian or Pakistani NOS: I like the arabic day/date, and the unusual cyclops on this one:

Spot on - it's 34 mm across, 38 lug-to-lug. There are several on ebay now, some used, some NOS. They seem to go for betwen $30 and 60.

The earlier comparison of your photos to sartorialist sums it up nicely, your pictures bring out the best in some of those items. Thanks to you a B&R watch is on my shopping list and those Panerai shots might make another serious dent in my paycheck .

Just got my Navitimer back from the shop and that piece of me that was missing seems to have come back with the watch.

I had meant to ask...

I'll be looking at purchasing another watch somewhat shortly and have narrowed down my desires to either the Omega Seamaster or the Montblanc Timewalker.

Any suggestions?

IMO Mont Blanc pens.. Sure their watches are nice.. But they make pens & not that good to come to think of it..

Of the ones you listed, Omega Planet Ocean.

JLC Reverso on a new croc strap.

I was thinking about the fact that the Reverso used to be a "sporting" watch, and started thinking I'd like a sportier strap for it with contrast stitching - sort of a homage to the watch's roots. Since I have a very formal looking black strap, I was hoping for brown or tan.

Finding a contrast strap that would fit the very thin JLC deployant was a problem. Even JLC didn't seem to have a contrast stitching strap that was thin enough at the end. Aftermarket was a prob because the strap is an odd size. Frustrated, I went to Tourneau in Palm Beach and dug through every strap they had. I finally found a Rolex strap that fit.

Here it is: I quite like it . . . .

it's been months getting here, but the wait was worth it. my vintage rolex 1675 from somewhere around 1967, all original, down to the rivet bracelet.
