    Excellent, please do!

    I would but who really wants to see a bunch of old consumer level watches? You could probably just cruise eBay for a bit and see the same thing, ha ha.

    How do you get such perfect pictures of your watches? Everytime I try it either reflects like crazy or when I turn the flash off it just comes out bad.

    Lucky Strike, that is a fantastic story about your grandpa's watch. That took cajones (the good kind). Of course, the shop keeper's actions also took cajones (the bad kind). Your cajones proved to be far, far superior.

    Gorgeous, Georges!

    Those are all around 1960, right? I've always liked the ones with the "pie-pan" dials, like the one at the right.

    +1. And Lemanias aren't exactly plebeian in my book. Very underrated watches.
