And now, the riff-raff!

20170228_212519 by unixrevolution, on Flickr

Po, Roger, and Dean. Po is the black and white Chronograph, from my late father. The Gold Seiko is Roger, a Quartz dress watch from 1986. He was looking frightful when I picked him up in a shop for $5, but a new crystal and bracelet and some polishing and he looks fabulous. Dean, the Elgin watch, has a scratch on his face, but works great. I replaced his Twist-o-flex band with a proper leather strap.

Po, on the wrist.

Roger, also on the wrist. I love the Seikos and their applied logos. On the gold Seiko, the 80's only "SQ" monogram is quite nice.

Calypso, my green-faced Croton automatic. 21 jewel non-hacking Automatic movement from Miyota. Cheap, yes, but it doesn't look or feel it. The SS bracelet is lovely, as is the case, and I think the beadblasted click-bezel with raised polished numbers looks great. Keeps great time too! One of my dailies.

20170222_122734 by unixrevolution, on Flickr

Marlin was my dad's watch. He's got the same guts as Calypso, and in fact the two were so similar, I wanted to get rid of one. But I decided to get this blue and white NATO for the Invicta and it pretty much transformed it. Despite being an inexpensive watch with a pretty mundane 21-jewel Automatic movement, I like it a lot. The blue face is gorgeous, and the applied logo, wings on the second hand, and the signed crown do it for me. Most invictas are pretty gaudy and tasteless, this one is suprisingly reserved in both size and sytling.

Firefly was a gift from a friend. He's a Pulsar Solar, who was looking tired and unhappy on a broken gold and stainless bracelet, with partially gold tone, partially brushed finish faded. My watch specialist buffed him out to a mirror shine, and I replaced his bracelet with this Zulu strap from Target. Again, I love the end result.

Thought I'd make things a bit more colourful.....

The watch itself is a 1917 Elgin with a 15j Lady Elgin manual wind movement. But the band -- well it's definitely not your average watch band. I picked the cuff up from a silversmith friend of mine in Madrid, New Mexico last fall. It's likely a Native American piece, though at the moment I can't identify the artist beyond the initials AP. It's sterling silver with Morenci turquoise, and it's really comfortable to wear. The angle of the watch is almost like a driver's watch -- albeit a very flashy driver's watch

Quite nice! Very bright. I thought I'd already added a splash of color with my watches, but that's definitely eye-catching.

They're great watches - I have a couple of A-11's, actually I believe one just like that too.

Going for understated: a Stowa Marine Auto - matt case, silver dial, heat blued hands and onion crown

I agree Vince. They run great. I also have a 1943 Bulova.

I also have a couple of old pocket watches. A turn of the last century Elgin and a 1933 Hamilton RR.

Vintage Waltham 17j Jump-hour automatic. I love it It was a mess, but a new strap and a spa day at my jewelers' fixed it.

Golden Wabi-Sabi combo. The watch is from 1970. The camera is from 1969. Neither was babied. Both were used well and maintained well over the years.

Late 90s - early 2000s Jaegar LeCoultre Memovox with manual movement behind display back, which is kinda unusual for alarm watches.

Beautiful! I love alarm watches, even though none of mine are the mechanical type like your Jaeger LeCoultre. I'd love to see the display back.

I picked this up yesterday, it's a Swiss-made (ETA movement) Quartz Chronograph from Burett. The brand is all but absent from the internet, but it looks great and is built very well.

I love the 10th second chronograph, screw down crown and dive bezel.

Here is the back of the Memovox.



The gong makes a nice school bell-like sound, and the 2 small dots you see on the display back is actually exposed to the outside of the glass so you can feel the vibration as well.

My classic PloProf 1200 from the 70s. I did a lot of underwater photography for years and this was the watch I used. It went all over the world with me. You can see the faded dial, hands and there are a few nicks on the bezel. I sold it recently to a Swiss collector, but I do miss it. It was large, heavy and had an unmistakable profile. I always considered it one of the biggest watches of the 1970s but by today's standard, just normal size.

It sure is fun and also extremely practical in daily life (well, display back won't do anything practical but hey).


Here is my IWC Mark XII that I just got back from my watchmaker. The Jaeger-LeCoultre provided movement has been fully overhauled, but the case, dial, and hands are untouched.

A Chinese DongFeng (east wind) brand watch with an in-house ST5 movement made since 1966.

And a Seagull brand for export with the same ST5 movement.

Guinand Flying Officer from the 1960s. I've posted my homage/reissue Flying Officer from 2007 before, but this one is the original made by Gallet, ticking modified Valjoux 7723.
