Again... Hi All!

I couldn't find the Intro section so, I'll just start here.

My names Robert and I am hopelessly addicted...



That should be a watch on that spoon. I'm mostly a mechanical watch kinda guy with a sick case for mechanical alarms (~30 with about 80 additional watches to go along with them). I like vintage the most, but do enjoy a few moderns, esp. with complications like day/dates (full calendars), power reserves, chronos, Oh... and Alarms, etc.

OK, enough of this. To the question... Did anyone catch the Letterman show tonight? Nick Cage was on tonight and really wearing some blinged out stuff... can anyone ID the watch he was wearing?? It was flashed a lot and I can't believe I didn't recognize it. Sorry, didn't bother to download an image capture of it (plus, I don't know how!). Maybe someone would be so kind to do so.

Thanx for letting me take up so much of your 'time' and hope to be speaking with you all soon.
Robert
PS: If a Mod wants to move this to the Intro section - please do (if one exists).

Welcome Robert
I don't watch Letterman down here in Australia but its great to have you on board. Sounds like you have a wealth of experience in collecting to share with us.

Hello Guys and thank you for the warm welcome. It is so nice to actually get a post replied to and friendly at that.

Late Show Video - The Late Show - 2/9/2012 - CBS.com

Sorry for all of the commercials - it sucks! There are some decent shots at about 20 minutes into it if it isn't too grainy. If it's a MB, it's a model I am not familiar with.

You asked for it..., one of my favorite alarms from the 40's, I believe, with some great patina...:





It's a Landi Despertador that I have never seen before. Quite large too, for the time ~40mm (which I really like). I know virtually nothing about it as I picked it up on a trip to the UK.
