Astrolabes are good enough for Godzilla; I don't need a glorified sundial to show me the stars.

Question. I just bought a JLC Master Compressor Geographic. Got a smoking deal on it from Tourneau of all places (over 50% of retail). On a leather strap but I really had wanted my next watch to be on a bracelet. So I'm trying to decide whether to put the bracelet on the JLC or on my other watch, a very well loved, on its way to being a beater PAM049. I know I like the looks of the PAM on an bracelet but can't decide about the JLC. Any opinions?

I move at tortoise like speed when it comes to watch decisions, it took me 4 years to buy the PAM and another 3 to get the JLC. You can imagine the pain the bracelet decision is causing me, I'm trying to compress that down to a week.

I've been to MunichTime Watch Fair yesterday and got to take a look at the new A. Lange & Söhne "Zeitwerk". Although too big for my small wrists, it certainly looks nice. Construction is of course.

Simply said, this watch is nothing compared to all the dozens upon dozens of great watches in here. However, as the first watch I have ever bought, purchased with my first paycheck at the late age of 18 (), I am proud to say that this is the first of (hopefully) many more watch purchases.

It's a Seiko 5 on a NATO strap bought from natostrap.blogspot.com, which I'm sure most of you guys know about already

That's a nice looking watch - I know Seikos don't get a lot of love here, but I think they're a good value and some of the models are quite sharp looking.

There are plenty of people here who appreciate a top quality Seiko.

Well since Swatch group owns both Omega and ETA, technically they are in house, no? Especially as Swatch is threatening to stop selling movements outside of their group after 2010.

Thank you, I'm pretty happy with it, especially for a grand total of $72. I'm trying to save up for a Sinn 656 or a Stowa Airman Ikarus though, so I need to limit my spending for a little bit...
