As it sits currently, with little to no designs on changing or adding. I have a few others currently in limbo that I'm not including here, because I'm pretty sure I'm giving them away. And I have another handful of pieces that my fiance saw and decided were hers that I'm also not including.

Not doing pics because sharing so many with the complicated rules and ways to do so it's not worth my precious time at all.

Black:
1. Omega Speedmaster Reduced (bracelet)✓
2. Omega Seamaster F300 (black strap)✓
3. Fiyta Spacemaster (dark brown strap)✓
4. Oris Flight Timer BC4 (brown strap)✓
5. Alpina Seastrong Yachttimer Regatta Countdown (orange strap)✓

Blue:
1. Certina DS Action Chrono (bracelet)✓
2. Stella Felix (black strap)✓
3. Anonimo Militare Chrono (blue strap)✓
4. Bulova Accu-Swiss Tellaro (brown strap)✓

White:
1. Tag Heuer Formula 1 Chrono (bracelet)✓
2. Farer Pendine (black strap)✓
3. Christopher Ward C60 Trident (brown strap)✓

Etc:

Still waiting on C60, Komandirskie and Mockingbird to arrive in the mail and I don't care about digital watches so no pics of that hunk of junk.

Edit#2: look what just showed up on the door step today... What timing... Get it... A watch... Timing...

Hi All,

My mainly (but not all of them) vintage collection. I wear one or other on weekly rotation as the mood takes my fancy. No safe queens for me.

Left to right, we have:

1966-67 Rolex Submariner 5133 (Metres First)
1970 Zenith El Primero A386 (Tricolour)
2019 Longines Heritage Classic
1969-70 Omega Seamaster 120 166.088
1967 Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.012-67 SP (Pre-Moon)
1970s Heuer Stopwatch
1997 Breitling Transocean Chronograph A53040 (Quartz)
2009 Stowa Flieger Automatic COSC (No Logo)
1969-70 Stowa Landeron 248 Chronograph
2013 Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope (Silver dial, numbers)
1953 Smiths of England De Luxe
1974 Timex GB Junior “Army Watch”

The Timex is identical to the first watch my mother bought me back in the day. The original is sadly lost to science.

Collection so far. Lots of changes since the last time I posted on this thread. The empty spot on the bottom is reserved for the new NTH Antilles Dark Rum, unless something else catches my eye in the next month or so.

Nice collection. What do you think of the Stella? I think the brand owner is female, which is unusual among micros. I haven't seen many comments about them since they launched.

Thank you. I could be wrong, but I think the brand owners for Stella are two people a woman and a man. Marcella and I think Stephen, the brand name is a combination of both their names, I could be wrong, but I remember reading that somewhere.

I think the Stella is great, it's a beautiful watch and I love the linen dial. To be honest, I am sending it back to Stella to get it fixed, I had an issue with the crown and the winding was not working right.

I'm sure it doesn't mean their brand has QC issues, it can happen from time to time and has not soured me on the watch or the brand. They were very nice when they responded to my email and sent me a return label right away. I'll be missing it while it's gone.

Nice rounded collection. I very much like what you chose.

What I'd like to know us how you find the Farer Pilot. I really like the look of those. How do you find the build quality? Does it feel quality? I believe they're 39mm, does it wear big or small?
I think I'd slight prefer the blue Cali one, but the white is a close tie.

Thank you.

The Farer Bradfield definitely feels like a quality piece for the price, only thing I wish it had was a screw down crown. I don't have a wrist shot at the moment, but it does wear big on my 7 inch wrist. It's not too big, just bigger than you'd think for it's size, but that's because it's all dial, no bezel.

These are the main four watches in my collection. I have another two that I am holding on to for now, but will likely sell in the near future. I've discovered that I really like having four different types of watches: ana-digi, dressy sport, diver, and chronograph. Also, as a bonus, I have the four different movement types I like best: solar radio, mechanical, HAQ, and mecha-quartz.
15824872

Starting from the top left and going clockwise (of course):
Casio Pro Trek PRW-50FC-1ER - Multifunction ana-digi with solar powered radio controlled ABC movement. The "tacticool" beater for adventures and travel. I love the combi-bracelet with quick adjust feature, it helps make this the most comfortable watch to wear despite it being the largest.

Zeppelin 7666-5 - Dressy sport with automatic movement. I don't love the open heart feature, but it's kinda cool. However, I disliked how loud the Miyota rotor was, so I performed a bit of minor surgery and removed it, effectively converting this into a hand winder. While I was in there I also regulated it to about +4 sec per day.

Certina DS Action - Diver with high accuracy thermocompensated quartz movement. The size and dial on this watch are just perfect for me. The bracelet is very high quality, and has a quick adjust feature. I don't love the skeleton hands. Perhaps in the future I might try to replace them.

Seiko SBTR005 - Chronograph with mecha-quartz movement. The 60 minute subdial is a bit difficult to read with my aging eyes, but I can still use it (for now haha). I like having a 12 hour counter, which unfortunately seems to be rare with mecha-quartz watches.

All my watches are from thrift stores or pawn shops. I had a Rolex 15 years ago and sold it. IMHO, It’s more fun to find watches in the wild.





PS= pawnshop, TS= thrift store, ES= estate sale.

Top row:
Oris(PS), G-Shock(TS), SKX007J(PS),
Seiko 6309-7040(TS), Wyler(TS), Ollech & Wajs(TS)

Bottom row:
Seiko 3803-7010(ES), Seiko 4823(PS), Seiko 4623(TS), Hamilton(PS), Omega(TS), Rotary(PS)



The LeJour Chrono, Luminox and the Seiko SKA371 are from Pawn shops, everything else is from a thrift store. Except the Gruen and the timex. Those where both worn by grandparents.
