  1. I thought I would post a shot of my entire collection of watches and pocket watches. The picture is not great but hopefully it conveys what my ethos on collecting watches is which is diversity. I love all forms of horology and can get as passionate about my humble Timex easy reader as I can about my Air King for they all mean something different to me. I hope you like the watches and if you want to see better shots of any then let me know and I will post better pictures on this thread. So! Top row are: John Forrest Lever Fusee Sterling silver pocket watch made in 1894, Next to it an Omega Canadian market pocket watch in Nickel silver made in 1916 Main row left to right are: Archer Watches Sterling ( Hand made in Canada) Timex Easy Reader Bulova Accutron (1971) Rolex Air King (114200) Birks ( Canadian equivalent of Tiffany's or Mappin & Web) branded Fortis Manual wind (circa 1970's) Cathode Corner Nixie watch (As worn by Steve Wozniak of Apple Computers fame) Sekonda manual wind (made in the Poljot #1 factory Moscow late 1970's) Cartier Tank (mid 1970's) Bulova American Clipper (1937) Election Chronometer (Mid 1930's) And last but not least, Casio G shock mudman. Hope you like my humble collection. I get a huge amount of satisfaction wearing all of them and new or old they all get lots of wrist or pocket time! Thanks for looking.
  2. I have been on a bit of a roll of late with watches. In truth this past couple of months purchases equal what I have purchased in the last ten years! But you know what its like. We all have wish list watches that one day we hope to own it just so happens all but one of my wish list have all come up this past couple of months and all at prices I have felt comfortable spending. I can't believe this but I now have five watches winging their way to me including the one I won today which is coming from my old home country, the UK! I have an Accutron but have always loved where Omega and the other Swiss makes took that movement to and have wanted one for a long time. Yesterday I spied a mint Omega Geneve in gold plate with gold dial, barely a mark on the case and dial and hands as fresh as they day they left the factory in 1972. Add to that the movement has just been freshly serviced by someone with experience on working with these and that the seller included a new Omega calf band and gold tone buckle and you end up with a really lovely example that has plenty of life in it and is looking cosmetically great as well. I won't say what I won it for but suffice to say if I was that sort I could probably turn it around tomorrow an make a couple of hundred on it but this is a keeper! Here are a couple of pictures from the seller, more to come once it arrives! So there is this one on the way as well as a mint Seiko Lassale, The Fellow Chronograph, The Timex easy reader, The other Timex electric arrived this week so its going to seem like Christmas in the next couple of weeks!

  5. Hello everyone. Just introducing myself here and will post a picture of what I am wearing in the other section in a moment. Like many I bet I came here via Marks wonderful youtube channel which I love watching. I am British (grew up in Dawlish) but have lived in Vancouver Canada for the past 15 years though I am planning to return to live in Europe or the UK later this year. I have been fascinated by Horology since a nipper. My first watch was a wind up Timex given to me a a bribe by my older brother to be a paige boy at his wedding! :) The bug bit and bit hard. I was fascinated by the ticking sounds and how all those gears and springs could make something tell the time! Through the years I have owned all sorts of watches both mechanical and quartz. I have a fascination with HEQ Quartz watches and though I am currently selling it own one of the high accuracy Breitlings. My collection now is drifting more toward vintage which is why the Breitling is going. I am after a vintage gold Rolex from the Thirties which will be the top of the tree for me as far as my collecting goes. What I have currently is as follows.. Wristwatches.. Rolex Air King 114200 with silver dial ( I have gone through several modern Rolex but ended up with this one as it is understated and very comfortable to wear.) Archer Sterling. This is a beautiful hand made watch made by an excellent watchmaker here in Canada. Al the owner combines the ETA 6498 movement with a German made stainless case. This particular model has a Sterling silver dial (hence the name) heat blued hands and a lovely german calf strap. Al gets the high grade version of the movement from ETA then strips each one down and cleans it and lubricates it. Then regulates it to well within COSC standards. The whole watch is beautifully put together and feels so comfortable to wear. Bulova American Clipper (from 1937) Bulova Accutron (1970) Election Chronometer (mid 1930's) Sekonda manual wind ( I found this on eBay. It replaces the exact same model that was given to me for my 18th birthday which gave up the ghost many years ago!) Timex easy reader ( just a classic, simple quartz Timex and harks back to my very first watch!) Casio GShock Mudman. Pocket Watches.. 1916 Omega with a Regina movement made specially for the Canadian market. The movement though having a Regina name was in fact made by Omega and used I believe elusively for the Canadian market. What is unusual with mine is the Omega dial. Most that were sold either had the Regina name on the dial or the name of the jeweller who sold the watch. John Forrest Fusee. I am excited about this one, I have wanted an English watch for so long! Made in 1894, it should be here any day now . It is fully serviced and ready to go with only a few minor things that make it not perfect. I have to source an inner glass for it (it is a Sterling silver full hunter). The latch spring does not work and there is a chip on the sub dial. I got the watch though at an exceptional price and knowing all these issues. More important to me is that it has been fully serviced and even carries a one year guarantee on that which is great! It is a beast of a watch with a diameter of 56mm and 17mm depth. All original and matching case and movement numbers. So that is my current collection. I love every piece and have tried to have a diverse collection to suit my moods! Thanks so much for having me here and I look forward to participating more. All the best. Ian
  6. Another fine watch, America used to make quite a few, such as the Bulova Accutron, which was very advanced for it's time. RogerC
