Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics! - Page 500

Oh those pictures make me wish I had a watch that could use a leather strap. They look great both of them.

The OVM is on my "must acquire" list.

This has been my daily driver for some time.

hey guys, I have this watch

im looking for a nice leather watchband to go with it. It has the weird 21mm lug length. Any suggestions ? I'd like to keep it affordable but if the strap is really special ill consider any price under 100.

My first post to this thread and my first "real" watch:

 

 

Citizen AT8010-58B Eco-Drive World Chronograph A-T 

 

I took the photo with my 7-year-old, 6MP Canon S3 IS (which does a great job with macro shots...)

My watch I bought a couple of months ago

Been looking  for a simple dress watch and an excuse to buy one and now I have finally quit my current job and as a present for doing that (over 3 years of working 12 hours 7 days a week) I decided to get the Maurice Lacroix Pontos Date. Did not want to spend too much money as I already have a nice Speedy Pro that is my main watch.

Very impressed with the way Lacroix have developed their line of watches. Innovative and yet retaining tradition at the same time. They have come a long way since the 1990's when you could buy them in Argos in the UK and they have, I think successfully shed that image of tack flash which is a hard thing to do. I think they have succeeded because they have focused on pure horology and good, simple, elegant styling.

I have made two new vintage purchases this past week. One a 1930's Swiss Election Chronometer which should be arriving from the UK any day now and secondly my first dip into pocket watches. A nice simple 1960's Swiss made Westbury with a date feature.

I only dabble in affordables. There's a lot of value to be had sub $100 these days from brands like Seiko, Citizen, Orient, Vostok, Casio, Pulsar and even fashion brands like Nautica and Fossil. 

 

For example, I recently picked up this Casio MTF-001 for $35. Stainless case, Japanese quartz movement, rotating inner compass bezel, strong lume, 100m, black date wheel, screw-down crown, thick 24mm rubber strap.

OK, I'm hooked!  

 

Is there lume on the numerals as well as on the hands?  I can't find specs elsewhere that answer this question.

 

Thanks!

Both hands and numerals are lumed. Now, don't expect Seiko Lumibrite brightness... but this Casio has the best lume of all the Casios I own and had. It's very bright initially, dims quickly but, and this is a first for my Casios, remains visible and legible throughout the night. Nothing to complain about in the lume department. :) It's no Seiko Monster though. Those are like little torches.
