That's good, because if I get one, you wouldn't try to steal it. :D

I dont disagree with it being unsightly but I think if you could see the day window, it would look at least somewhat balanced:

Oh yeah, I missed that. You're right- I dislike it a lot less now.

Worn and Wound have a story that Squale are doing a run of Fifty Fathoms knockoffs homages. They are actually using original Blancpain cases into which they have installed a modern ETA movement.

"Squale"

They are available from the Amsterdam Watch Company.

My current ‘collection’.
Contemplating if I should add a field watch or B-Uhr.

Also at some point I’ll have to get an auto Panerai as this hand winding movement is the main reason I don’t wear it more often.

Anyone else a watch freak here? Def fits the denim fetishist model...

I'm a G-Shock whore personally.

H

I love them.

My day to day watch used to be a Breitling Chromomat until I met up with DougNG in New York, he was sporting a Riki Watanabe.  I had to have one, so I put it on my birtday list, and hey presto Paula came up with the goodies.  I love it and think that it is a perfect jeans watch:



And yes Landocal, that is an IHSH-06

I also have a 1954 Patek Philippe manual calatrava and a 1970's Jaeger-LeCoultre manual complication (dunno why, I never wear either, but Hectic, I guess that is exactly your point)
   Can you tell me the brand name of watch?

Trusty and much loved IWC Spitfire Chrono.

Had this about eight years now. Seen a lot of wear and abuse.  Love it everytime I look at it. Needs a service though

Omega have just announced an updated Speedmaster, which benefits from a Master Chronometer movement.

Looks nice, but there's been a bump in the price.

Oris have just launched a third Carl Brashear watch. This time it's got their new in-house movement and and Erika's Originals strap. It looks good. It's a limited edition of 2000, with a pricetag of $4200.

"Oris Carl Brashear"

More details at Monochrome.
