    I picked this up from Aaron Faber Gallery a few years ago. It is a WWII German pilots watch. (I posted it the other day on the Cool Old Watches Thread) Note the non-reflective case. The crystal and sweep second hand have been replaced but it keeps very good time.

    Some very cool watches. I really like some of the vintage watches.

    I am picking up a Tag Monaco next week. Black faced chrono. Can't wait.

    This is a Martin Braun "La Sonnerie I". No. 65/100. It has a very nice chime/ring to the alarm that is fun to set before a meeting when you want it to be a short one. The band is croc and deep navy that is a nice compliment to the blue hands. I got this because I enjoy the old style numerals and crowns. They give it a simple vintage style but in a modern watch.

    Me too. I didn't used to like it, but over the years it's grown on me. That and the Explorer I are my favorite Rolex models.

    The one on the end (gold and black) is by far my favorite vintage watch that I own.

    I always dream of owning a pair of high end watch. still too young [​IMG]


    Most of them my wife bought me as presents. All I can say is, I married the right woman. I'm sure in due time, you too will own a few high end watches.

    Richard, that Seamaster is outstanding. Is that in the current line-up or is it an older piece? Very nice collection-lot's of variety.

    that is a stunning watch psg... I had a look at the Martin Braun website as a result and they make some great watches (some have a very Lange and Sohne aesthetic which I like)

    Unfortunately just like the Lange and Sohne's they are out of my price range! (at least for now...)
