  1. Hello from Australia

    Welcome to the forum! Plenty of information to take in and friendly people all over this place.

    At dusk she sails. (1962 - cal 340)
  3. Watch of Today

    Nice, the serial number on mine is 7700053 and when I run it to check - it also was made in Jul 67. There are some true vintage gems right before the quartz crisis.

    Another Seiko from about the same time as the one above - Skyliner 6220 - 7970. First watch I took apart, keeper that do not get that much wrist-time.

  6. Hello From Jakarta

    Hello and welcome!
  7. Watch of Today

    Reminds me a lot of this recent acquisition, something about the case shape and dial really works for me.
  8. Watch of Today

    This one makes me want to buy 19mm straps! Sadly I have zero, so this Seiko 5 strap will have to do for now. ETA 2472 (wish it had proper quickset).
  9. Watch of Today

    This one needs some work, love the dial, clean minimal text. Some dials its like they are writing a novel.
  10. Waltham pocket watch.

    According to pocket watch database its a model 1883. Nice find for $10. I have something similar, I don't do many pocket watches so this one was fun and different to work on:
  11. My pocket watches

    Nice collection, do you mainly focus on pocket watches then?
  12. Watch of Today

    I should have explained that better. Essentially before I got it, given the history (Scandinavian, aviation, design and horological) I built it up in my mind and it got worse as I serviced it, everything in the movement just seem to be designed so well. But when I put it on my wrist it just cant live up to that impossible image. Onward to a watch that did the opposite. My first impressions of the Alpinist was small and dull. But it really grew on me and the dial/handset combination plays with the light just beautifully. Picture reflects the Swedish weather quite well, grey and cold.

    Polerouter date, the watch I ruined for myself by hyping it up to much.
  14. Watch of Today

    Seiko "BB 36 tribute" built on a SNK805. Essentially just put on hands+dial and polished top+side.
