@Filthy I'll bear you in mind. Although given how much I procrastinate about watches, you might pass away first! :o

@Finn666 glad to hear you've made your mind up. Hopefully the Rolex waiting list gods are kind to you.

Wow. Blancpains are the price of a new family car. What an investment piece.

I spotted a Seamaster 1948 Small Seconds today. They apparently sold out pretty quickly after Baselworld last year, but this was a cancelled order.

I'm tempted.

An article about the Tornek-Rayville, which was a rebadged and re-engineered Fifty Fathoms.

Not many survive, because they were a little bit radioactive!

More watch temptation, after I found that the Omega Small Seconds had sold. This time it's a Cartier Santos Noctambule.

That watch is lovely, but if find it almost illegible. Had to look twice to see the hands. Oddly enough, this is also my problem with many g-shocks. I don’t get how all up and down the scale there are pieces whose primary function doesn’t work that well.

Obviously this is a pet peeve of mine that ti get too worked up about.

I wasn't paying much attention to the Noctambule's legibility, but it's not as bad as some skeletonised watches that I've seen. The hands are polished steel, whilst the background is darker.

Whilst it is a lovely watch, you could buy an awful lot of G-Shocks for the same price!

There are several versions of skeleton Santos. I like the silver ones better.
