Thread: Got all the gang together at last....time for a quick'n'dirty SOTC

  1. #1

    Got all the gang together at last....time for a quick'n'dirty SOTC

    With the arrival of the GUB Glashutte 1980s dress watch and then the return of two watches from being serviced, I've now got all ten of my collection together

    Taking photos of watches isn't easy, and the difficulty doubles with each watch added to a photo, so I'm not going to attempt any photo better than this one:



    As you can see, I've got them all paired up - in my head I've five different styles of watch and I've two of each....

    5. Two quartz

    worn when needed

    Casio Edifice



    Swatch Pumpkin Rebel



    both bought new
    both over 40mm
    both have a degree of WR for peace of mind
    both cheap and robust enough and easy to replace enough that I can wear them when I don't want to be worrying about their getting smacked about

    Oh look, I seem to have followed the same pairings and order as my signature, what were the chances of that?
