Update: Still waiting on the Steinhart diver. The ceramic bezels are apparently back-ordered.

I also sent payment for the Stowa. I changed up the model I wanted, choosing instead the Marine Auto with date & A10 movement, thus also coming with silver dial & brushed SS case. I also opted for the blue crocodile strap instead of the stand black/brown/tan offerings. No additional charge, but apparently a minor wait associated with any croco straps due to exotic leather controls in Germany/US export.

Here it is with a black croco strap for reference:


The A10 movement from the back of another model, the Antea:


Something to look forward to in a couple weeks! What a Face

What should appear this past Monday but a Flieger new, unworn, but not what the seller wanted after. It's got the top ETA 2824-2 movement. drunken

Bought it and received it today.


I have a watch! cheers Too bad the strap is a little too short. I ordered some NATO straps anyway, so that's where this'll be sitting on until I can find a good leather one. Have a couple in mind from Hadley-Roma....study 

The Steinhart & other Stowa are still pending though... What a Face

I have owned a Rolex Sea-Dweller, an Ebel, and my one-time boss had a Piaget. They were all pains in the butt, the Piaget especially, which was by far the most expensive. Strictly a run-of-the-mill quartz fan now--Citizen, Seiko, whatever. They don't seem to ever have any "problems," and keep better time than the three mentioned. But they shore were purty; each to his own, just like pipes and tobacco--and women.

It's been about 5 days now. I've been resetting the time to the second every day around mid-morning. The hacking seconds feature is a nice one for a watch that runs fast. I've been changing out the NATO straps and have a leather Panatime pilot one coming later this week. I've gotten lots of compliments on it and I've spent a lot of time (pun intended) just staring at the dial.

AND, this morning I got a lovely email confirming my other Stowa--Marine Auto with croco band--has shipped! It'll also be here Thursday, barring any delays. cheers

A guy could get used to this....

Apparently I confused my wife when I said I was still waiting on the watches I ordered and already received 1. Rolling Eyes

I explained about ebay and online ordering; she explained up the backside of my head. Then she said, "You spend too much on yourself. Fine, then that can be your early anniversary present. I'm getting pearls." I don't see a problem with this.

Got the wife what she wanted, got what I wanted!

Well now I need a winder... Rolling Eyes 

Belocia is the front runner right now, but if I can find a good deal on a Wolf or Orbita, then maybe I'll snap one up.

The only problem with owning multiple automatic watches is that a good watch winder will cost you as much as a nice watch! I have a Steinhausen dual winder; they are not cheap (at least to me; around $700 list on their website); luckily I got it for free. It does wind the watches but it's noisy as hell.

I own a Longines Lindbergh Hour Angle watch. I wear it mostly for business and it's the only piece of jewelry I wear. I absolutely love it. I have no idea how to post pictures but this is a link to their website.

PostSubject: Another watch!   Fri Jul 24, 2015 2:43 pm

I'm upgrading to the big leagues guys! IWC Pilot Chrono 3777 (new for 2015) @ 43mm. It's not a true in-house movement, but can't go wrong with a 7750 base! What a Face



By the way, if anyone is interested in a Steinhart Ocean 1 Black (ceramic), Ocean 1 Blue Premium, or Stowa Marine Chrono, PM me. Razz

Wow, lovin BoB!

Great thread!

I've been a watch nut for years.  With the exception of a few watches I received as gifts, all of my time pieces are vintage, antique or otherwise "estate" watches  Wink

Started pickin up old Gruen's, Waltham's, Whitenhaur's and others decades ago @ pawn shops and estate sales.

My daily watch is a vintage Rolex I picked up from a buddy that buys up old watch and jewelry stores that close up or are being liquidated as a result of the owner passing away.

The Rolex is an old 60's Oysterdate Precision that was picked up a bout 10 years ago.  It was Old Stock New in Box.  Somewhere along the line the band disappeared.  It's a very simple Stainless with Gold Bezel and black dial.  It's not a perpetual, nor is it a quartz.  It's an honest to goodness "wind-up" watch sportin a brown Croc band.

As soon as I burn off the "Noob probation time" I'll post a pic.

My dress watch is a Clare.  Solid gold with a white porcelain dial and black croc band.
