At one time, 'experts' were predicting the death of the wrist watch due to people opting to use their smart phone to keep track of time. Now I see they are developing wrist watch sized smart phones. Somewhere, Dick Tracy's creator, Chester Gould, is smiling!

My favourite watch is my Ebel 1911 Chronograph. I've had it over 20 years and it is the original version with the Zenith El Primero movement (36,000 bph) rather than the cheaper in-house movement that Ebel moved to subsequently.

I like the rounded back and I've never felt a metal band as soft:
Beautiful watch indeed!

Current collections.

I am constantly rotating watches and rarely keep one for more than 6 months, although there's two that I have had a quite some time. I'm also currently putting together my version of a Parnis 47mm Pilot face with a Seagull 2530 movement. Just waiting for my gold plating kit to arrive

Alba Seiko AS6087x1:



HMT SONA:



Alpha Grey 45mm Pilot:




Longines Lyre L4.759.2.11.7:



Tissot PRC200 T17.1.526.52:



Skagen 233LGS



Seiko SNN079P2



Leica by Enicar, and a keeper! One of these days I'll give it a quality bracelet it deserves...

Yes, and he left that symbol on his letters he wrote. However, it's definitely not the reason why I chose that brand!

I wonder if sales went up or down for them after that whole ordeal.

Mmm, nice Seamaster! I've had my eye on the Seamaster Co-Axial GMT for the last couple years. Thinking I might gift it to myself once I'm finished school next year

I really admire a fine timepiece I just myself don't spend huge sums (not against it just have other needs).
The Gshock is my favorite and I got it for my birthday used on Ebay less than half price the guy only wore it a few times.
More interesting story with the Seiko below it. That was a gift from a fellow I worked for in Japan. He was on a recent
show on the History channel about Japan's top secret scientists that worked on their atom bomb. There is only one
known photo of them together and it was recently discovered in archives and they did a show about it. I worked for
a fellow on the first row of that photo years ago. He died about ten years ago. That was his parting gift to me.
The $50 bang around Seiko automatic below that. The Seiko my HS girlfriend gave me 30 years ago. A Swiss Army
watch that has seen hard service.

RIP or RIPieces: Two first generation GShocks, a Swatch, a oversize with oversize numerals Timex Indiglow analog.

The moon watch my sister got me for college graduation a long time ago. The diver type watch was also a gift from that nice Japanese guy, but way before
the Seiko. And I've started my daughter on the collecting binge early. She has three Hello Kitty watches but her half sister keeps stealing them (we don't live
in the same spot).

It is the Aviator model. They are pricey new and a little hard to find used but can be had for $100+ in
great condition. Be aware it has no light although the hands and numerals do glow decently.
