Very elegant. Interesting they used rubber on such an expensive piece. I love it

Nice!

Love that sort of strap. I have an old Espit (the first I posted is Esprit too. Not exactly a watch brand but they do make pretty ones) with a simular strap.

Found a pic. (I put it under the scanner to get a pic so it doesn't look so good.)

Rubber is ok. I also love it's steel. In shop it looked very cool among other gold or platinum models in 10000-15000$ range. It's indeed very cool looking on the hand. I can make a foto if anyone can store it.

Jorg, just send it to me via email (in my profile) and I'll host it for you

I know nothing about this watch except that I had it shipped from Bulgaria after purchasing it off of eBay.

Unfortunately I was walking to my car and a friend shoved me. I yanked my hand out of my pocket but I was holding my keys. The keys caught on my pocket and emptied everything out. I had been meaning to get a chain...

Anyways, I lost the second hand and broken the acrylic crystal (popped it off). Now I need a custom second hand, new crystal and chain. It's been broken for 4 years now...

Does anyone know anything about the brand?

You might want to post your photo and query in the National Association Of Watch And Clock Collectors' (NAWCC) pocket watch forum.

I used to hang out there when I was collecting pocket watches. Your questions will be answered swiftly by any of hundreds of knowledgeable members.

Speaking of pocket watches. Here's one of mine. It's a Waltham "Seaside", 6 size, Model 1890, gold-filled hunter-style case, with a 15-jewel movement. A 6 size is generally considered to be a ladies watch. The serial number indicates that it was made in 1903. My paternal grandmother reportedly bought it the following year. Some photos:

Dial


Movement


Inner cover


Back cover

I think since 2003 it's no longer the case and before that I wouldn't consider Panerai, Louis Vuitton and Tag Heuer as sophisticated as other brands out there.

I currently own Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945



Piaget Rectangle à l'Ancienne -not exactly like mine, the one that I own doesn't have the power reserve indicator



and a number of other timepieces for which I'll try to find pics later

Customized Seiko Field Watch

Casio Marine.

It's a beater watch, gets scratched, wet, dropped, sat on .. but it works.

I'm not big on shiny watches but I wouldn't mind a nice Chase Durer Pilot watch in all black ..

OK, Jorg asked me to host and post these pics for him, so here they are. Jorg, I just put up 4 as the other two were repeats and difficult to see. I worked these in Photoshop a little for you to make them a bit clearer
