Watches

Ah - that explains your user name on the pink forum… :sunglasses:

i like these ones:

The Hublot ferrari watch is nice and original, to my eyes of course. Not very expensive, just more than full naim statement amp and pre…:laughing:

Good spot, James … yes, once the years started catching up on me, I made the sideways move into diving of a robotic nature … much easier and safer. :relaxed:


#25

Kudos to you Dave, that’s a pretty cool job (and a very nice watch !)

A few images on some of my watches in their case. Not great pictures, but gives a flavour for some of my wrist wear

And this is my most recent addition. A gift from my son on his return from Dubai

An Oris BC3 7500, bought in 2002 in Hong Kong as a 40th birthday present to myself…

It’s a lovely fully mechanical Swiss piltot’s watch, simple and masculine. It has the added advantage of being a fairly obscure make, so any thieves or muggers might pass it by :sunglasses:

By a weird coincidence, the rubber strap broke today so I’ll need to get a new one.

I like “tool” watches, particularly divers. Even though I’ve never gone much beyond snorkelling or a swim in the sea at Camber with one of them on my wrist, it’s reassuring to know that if I ever did find myself at 200 metres under the sea, while I likely wouldn’t be in such good shape, my watch will be just fine…

Although a Seiko Turtle is my usual daily ‘beater’, this Tudor I still like the most…

i had this lapizta watch for a couple of years, but sold it recently. A bit heavy. image

Oh, wouldn’t fancy a swop?.
Been looking for that watch


#31

Prized from my cold dead wrist that will be.

Did you use this watch diving in oilfieds?


#33

'Fraid not, as most diving operations are run from dive control on the surface, so there was no need for the diver to be wearing a watch, regardless of Rolex’s advertising over the years.

I did do some diving in scuba in the Middle East, where a watch was needed, but there was no way this little chap was going over the side on my wrist … no, a cheap and cheerful Casio was plenty good enough. :+1::+1:

So, a Submariner is simply a self indulgent treat for most divers.

I have an Omega Speedmaster "moonwatch" (cal 1861) that I bought new in 2003 (I remember the MSRP was £1500 and I beat them down to £1350). I have had it serviced a couple of times, and the last time I had it done, the tacymeter bezel needed replacing and that part alone was £200! The bezel is easy to bash on things and the old one had chunks knocked out of it, so I have been more careful with it now I know how much it costs! Conversely, the glass is actually plastic and that part is about a tenner.

Mine is on an 1171 bracelet, which I bought in about 2009. This is a modern Omega reissue of the bracelet Speedmasters came on in the the 1970s and even though it is cheaply made, I prefer it to the bracelet that came with the Speedmaster when I bought it because i think the contemporary factory bracelet is a bit blingy. The pic below is from the internet and I think this is an 1171 bracelet.

I think we had a similar thread on the old forum - I don’t often bother with a watch, but I do occasionally wear my grandad’s Tudor, which he bought in 1949, and still works fine.


#36

Omega Seamaster, for many, many years my daily watch … never felt a need to upgrade :smiley:


#37

My dream watch but hifi / music keeps taking my money. :joy::joy:

I have 4 or 5 watches that I rotate.

I have 2 Seiko Divers watches. One with the Pepsi Bezel and 1 with a Black Bezel which I haven’t worn yet.

The Tag Heur I got for nothing from a friend who worked for them at the production factory however it needs a good service.

Currently wearing the Citizen to the Office.

Not fancy, not even pretty even at 20 years plus, but it does keep reasonable time at +3secs every fortnight.

I might be tempted by one of those Longines VHPs.


#40

Think I had one version of these

I used to wear this occasionally up until a couple of years ago. I lent it to my son to wear at his wedding, a couple of years ago.

He hasn’t given it back yet. :running_man:
