    Watch 1: Timex watch on brown strap from Target

    Watch 2: Hamilton Khaki Automatic with black face. I think it is 42mm


    Watch 3: Future purchase once it arrives in stores. Also a wedding gift from my fiance. Rolex GMT Master. blue/Black face from Basel 2013.

    I can't put my finger why, but I actually prefer the first one (with the sub-seconds dial). It looks more complete than the one with central seconds.

    The movement looks like an ETA 6497 clone, and is finished pretty nicely, so a display case back would be a nice perk of that watch.

    I didn't used to like SpeedMasters but they're starting to grow on me. Maybe I'll pick one up in 5-10 years. It's not like they'll change the design on it.

    I'm trying to decide between these 2 watches at the moment. Hopefully you guys can give me some opinions. They're both roughly the same price.

    A. It is a hand wind and has a display back. I'd be getting it with a brown strap instead of the black since I like that look better.


    B. I like the look of the face better but it doesn't have the display back.


    I've never had a watch with a display back and this one since it's hand wind doesn't have the rotor covering up half of it which is why at the moment I'm leaning towards option A.

    I just added this back to my collection. It is quartz, but still an amazing watch. I wanted to get something with a rubber strap that had a tie to F1.


    I will probably add a vintage Speedmaster to my collection by the end of the year.

    I just ordered an Orient Mako this morning. I essentially got this one except with a rubber strap. It was cheaper with the rubber strap and for me it didn't matter since I'm going to wear it with NATO's. I went with it for 2 reasons over some of the other cheaper divers.
    1. It has 22MM lugs which means I can use most of the NATO straps I already own from a previous diver I had.
    2. It is a diver but is still a bit different in terms of the dial than others so it's kind of it's own watch instead of an 'homage'.
    I'm still not happy about the month/date but I figure I just won't set them most of the time. I'll set the time and go unless I'll be wearing it for an extended period of time.



    It's funny that Crown and Buckle just posted because the straps I have left over from my Steinhart OVM are from C&B. If I end up keeping the Mako for an extended time, I'll definitely be ordering a few more colorful straps from them.

    There are some really awesome collections in this thread. We need to keep this alive.

    For those of you looking for a nice looking storage solution for their watches, check out http://www.acetimer.com/Watch-Cases/. No affiliation other than we own several of their display cases. For the price they probably can't be beat. The construction and materials are very nice, and they are all $30-100 depending on the style. I think we paid about $70 for a 24 watch black wood case with a glass display top.

    [QUOTE=ajk170;[email protected] mitch- I really like you travel case- it looks very solid- where did you find it? The one I have is cheap and already falling apart after two months of very light use. Is there a divider that folds in-between the tow halves? It looks as though there is something out of the picture)[/QUOTE]

    Hey man,

    Yeah there is a divider that buttons down between the two halves. Im a member of a few watch forums and I bought it on recommendation's from those. I picked it up on this site: http://www.thetimetraveler.co/ .Its not the cheapest case out there but I think it's class.
    Here is another link to a guy called Rainer in Germany that makes watch boxes. These are great and again come with great reviews - http://www.network54.com/Forum/35339...ANERAI+WATCHES

    I have to say I like leather on Datejusts. Nomos do a nice Horween Shell Cordovan straps for EUR60.00. I think the lug width on the DJ is
    20mm so you would be looking at straps for the Nomos Zurich - http://www.nomos-store.com/en/Watchstraps/Zuerich/

    I've caught the watch bug recently, but I'm just getting started. Two more are currently inbound. Stay away from Watchuseek if you're weak-willed, is all I can say.
    You can pretty much tell which ones are quartz - the ones that that show the same time.

    http://i1281.photobucket.com/albums/...ps692830d0.jpg

    Front to back:
    Orient Star Somes (blue dial) - automatic not quartz, I took it off for the pic
    Laco Vintage, Sea-Gull Rodina
    Movado Titanium Bold, some quartz Seiko
    The Timex Easy Reader Joe just featured, and a Timex Ironman

    On their way: a Bombfrog tactical diver and a funky-looking Seiko to have fun with straps.

    BremersM - The only watch I kind of regret selling was my Steinhart OVM.

    MarkB - Nice. The Omega was my wedding gift from the wife. I guess they feel guilty that we get shafted on the rings so this kind of evens it up a bit. I'm considering buying a Mako or Ray also. I'm thinking of going with a blue face since it's similar to my Omega SMP300 I sold last year.
