Browsing through my picture archive, I came across this:



Aside from a 1950s Bucherer, which I gave to a good friend (it's not pictured), this is what entered my "collection" last year. Kudos if you recognize them all.

Luckily, I'm completely clean this year, aside from a vintage Longines that was given to me.

I'd like to think that I'm not totally crazy, but this photo suggests otherwise. ;-)

If that's crazy, I don't want to be sane. :)

Is that a vintage Patek to the left of the white dialed Ralph Lauren?

I reserve judgment until I can see up close individual pics . . . .;-)

The fourth one from the left is a Moeris 10 1/2 ligne from WWII era.

You can read the story behind it here : The Joy of a Vintage Watch Part II



The PP/AP is actually my 1931 Hamilton Cushion Engraved.



While I do love the RL Tourbillon, that is not my watch; it's my dad's. I'm always happy to post pictures, though.

Ask and you shall receive. Here are the rest.




















Here's the Bucherer. Felt good to hand this one over to its new owner. He loved it.



It was a very good year for watches.​

whoa - what a stunning collection. I knew you had a couple incredible watches…. some vintage, some modern. But seeing them all in one place like that is still amazing.

You do have a screw loose. You haven't acquired anything this year.

I love seeing your collection, it is so varied and thoughtful. I know I have seen pieces of it before but I never tire of it. The photos are fantastic. I think i am even more envious of the RS4, however :) I love that car.

Plus I think I'm worse than you. Although my collection is a bit less expensive (the student life)

That 'screw loose' seems to be something contagious around these parts...one of the side effects is ending up with a great collection of watches.

I'm running at about 2 new watches per month in 2014 so I'm the last person to say whether someone has got a screw loose or not.

By WUS standards that's certainly true. I still have my eye on a 1675 Pepsi, but the condition has to be exactly the way I want it. I'm also not sure if I want to pony up the cash that vintage Rolexes command. It's getting insane at this point, but I do find myself wondering if they'll keep going up in value or eventually crash. If they fall, I'll swoop in.

Watchnik and I occasionally trade PMs about B7 RS4s, as he used to own one. There's something truly magical about the way the car drives, and I think it will go down in Audi history as a classic. Aside from the TT RS, it's likely the last RS car that will be offered with a manual transmission, sadly.

I'll try to do an entire SotC thread in the next few weeks. At the very least, I want to take fresh photos.

You have a great collection of vintage watches.

Enjoy the student life while you can. I miss it.


Now, I know I'm worse than you, because I can identify all your watches! I'm so depressed...:-(...:-d
Given the fact that I tend to post pictures too much, I knew at least one person would be able to identify all the watches!

And we have yet to see an incoming thread? Shame on you, Sticky!
