Thread: Not in a while....

  1. #1

    Not in a while....

    The premise is simple:

    Watches that you haven't worn recently - not in a while in fact

    (Gotta be say... more than a month since you wore it all day)

    Dig the watch out, wear it and give it some love for the day and take new photo's - it'll love you for it.
    I can't see any instant responses from this as they need to be new photo's , but give it a go.

    My first for an example is this Dugena Gamma 3 using a NOS Bulova 11ANAC movement, last worn possibly 4 months ago! - poor little thing.
    .....Anyway it's on for the day.

    I have a major dilemma in that I have a number of watches that don't get much wear any more.
    The problem is that, as a Rado collector, I consider these watches as essential to my collection.
    I will start to dig them out and post them here in the coming days.
    If the supply of ETA movement parts affects you please complete this survey:

    I stopped wearing this about a year ago, when it stopped keeping remotely good time (worse than all my mechanicals) and replaced it with my orange swatch. It's 19mm spring bars are now being useful in my grey dialled Seiko. It was a present fifteen years ago so it's nice having it hanging around



    There's nothing in what I regard as my collection that hasn't been worn in a while, because I usually get rid of watches once I don't want to wear them regularly.

    Doesn't necessarily have to be one , you don't like/want any more, just one that's fallen by the wayside inadvertantly perhaps .... maybe another has got more favour recently....

    I'm sticking up for the one's that should be worn more often

    The 'Not enough wrists and all that' watches.

    Once you get past the name on the dial that's actually kind of alright
