    So you've got a Speedmaster there which is a very classy watch with the added kudos of being the moon watch, and yet you want to bugger up the whole look by adding a bunch of schmutter on your wrist like some drunken frat boy on the beach at Cancun on Spring Break?

    Whats's the point?


    you're an idiot

    This is great. Love the touches of blue mixed with the white and black. Certain '70s chronographs like this one just really hit the spot for me.

    Awesome. The blue black contrast is amazing. Where did you find that one? I've been trying to find something similar for ages.

    The neo-vintage Heuer manual wound chronos are spectucular time pieces. This one in particular is a wonderful example of what made Heuer great. And I prefer them to the automatic ones, with the crown and pushers on the 9.

    This is a stunning watch and the proportions are just right. I presume its the black dial. How long have you had it for? I've been lusting after a blue dial for sometime now. The vintage one looks wonderful too. Its one of the few watches that looks great all beaten up!

    I think that NonServiam's Heuer is "true" vintage, nothing "neo" about that one. I've had the automatic, and it only has the crown on the left side - the pushers are still on the right. The Royal Oak is a masterpiece, really. The dial was once black, but 30ish years later it has faded to charcoal. Like you say it ages with a bit of grace - as long as one is not polishing it and destroying the finish it can certainly live with its scars. And it has one of the coolest bracelets ever; [​IMG] /M

    The RO is lovely, Singular!

    I have no idea when the neo vintage becomes vintage. But anything 70s must truly be vintage when it comes to watches?

    I also have an automatic Autavia. With a custom display back, just to play "spot the rotor in the cal 12" [​IMG]

    Haha, my favourite game - trying to convince people cal 12 is automatic...

    Yes another Seiko. Not strictly a Seiko 5 but it's a 7s26 movement for the Asian market:

    I'll leave this one on the brushed strap.

    Late on this one but - that watch would look awesome on a brown strap.

    Today: Heuer Autavia 73663, manual, early 70s.

    What a beautiful dial.

    Silly me. I stand corrected on the Autavia. Forgot that the pushers were on the right.

    More shots of the ROO when you get the chance. Its a beauty. Also glad to know that its a vintage piece. Love it!
