    The Rado has ETA2892-A2 elaboré so there's decorations but I was surprised to find decorations from the Junkers Sellita SW290-1.
    Picture from Junkers, Rado has same decorations, neither are visible without elf eyes or magnifying glass.

    I was seriously considering to buy the Vintage Zenith last december, and I was quite pleased to find the Rotary six months later.
    The modern version of the Zenith also looked nice.
    I'm glad that I got over the "it must be a Zenith because the brand is better than x" thinking.

    SOTC now, watches for different occasions, what is missing from the picture is Seiko 5 that I honestly bought just because it was cheap and wanted to to try it.
    Also what is not in the box is the watch I'm wearing if I don't know what watch to wear, the grey dial Seiko titanium on a titanium bracelet.
    Most of these are 38-40mm with 20mm lugs so I have lots of straps for them, usually I vaguely match the strap color to my shoes.
    I think I'm set now as the number of watch+strap combinations is so high that I don't have time to wear them all.

    Oh the Casio is there to remind me of the real world, and if I show my friends my watchbox they recognize the Casio and don't think I'm too serious watch collector or a snob.

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    That Junkers is pretty cool looking. So is the Frederique Constant. For some reason, that shade of salmon? Coral? Dunno what it is but I like THAT color.
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.
