Show us your watch(es)

My other hobby is watch collecting. Nothing too extravagant but I do rather like this one - Sinn 757UTC Tegimented. What watch(es) do you have?

I'll see if I can post some pics later. Have a Seiko Orange Monster, Graf Zep 7680-1 (not too expensive but one of the prettiest watches I have ever seen), Tissot T-Touch and a Seiko chronograph I cannot recall the model # of. Also piecing together a custom build based on a Wenger case and 2824-2 movement.

Ah, the first one is hand crafted goodness from the US. Hadn't seen that particular Rado before - and its a chronometer too.

Nice watches fellas. Larry, is that an RGM? ping - I used to have an Orange Monster but I lost it. I replaced it with a Orient Blue Mako... it's my beater but what a terrific cheap watch.

I don't have any decent photos right now, but I collect watches as well. All of mine are around or under $1k as I prefer having 15 decent watches rather than one fantastic one. Anyway, most of my collection are Hamilton's both vintage and new. My favorite is my Jazzmaster Auto Chrono which I have both the bracelet and brown gator strap for. I want the Khaki Navy Pioneer really, really badly. I'm also looking for an Oris Frank Sinatra with no complications and a black face if anyone has one.

Yes it is an RGM. I used to have the watch in silver but sold it. The etched black dial just looks nicer to me. You can still buy them from watchseller.com who is an authorized RGM dealer. The watch is the finest manual watch I have ever had. Silky smooth.

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:

I use a titanium Tissot T-Touch as my holiday watch as I like having a barometer/compass/altimeter/etc when travelling:

My Seiko dress watch. My daily driver got dropped and has a number loose, so I gotta go get it fixed. In the meantime, trying to get two cheap vintage watches to be my alternate daily drivers.

Just looking through my watches and completely forgot I bought this! It was still in its plastic!

I guess it'll be good for the beach...
