Thread: Holiday Watch Spotting

  1. #1

    Holiday Watch Spotting

    So, I've been spending the week on holiday with the family in Norfolk. Plenty of family friendly things like swimming, zoos, seaside towns etc. As it's been pretty warm people have been in short sleeves; watch spotting time!

    I brought my Speedy (handy as Apollo 13 was on one night) and my GShock. My Mrs brought her Rolex, and has fitted in just fine as this place is packed with Rolex at the moment!

    I've lost count of the number if DJs I've seen, his and hers, an OP and some Subs. But, three standout pieces have been spotted:

    3rd place goes to a Milgauss GV
    2nd place goes to a full yellow gold DD
    Best spot so far? A white gold Sub!

    Not bad! Guess holidays in the UK are getting more expensive!
    G-Shock: GW-7900-1ER & GW3000B-1A
    Rolex: Submariner 14060M
    Accurist: 1965 Shockmaster & 1961 Gold Shockmaster
    Omega: Speedmaster Professional 3570.50.00

    Meistersinger: Perigraph AM1002
    Ben Sherman: S489.OOBS
    1990: Rotary Gold Case

    I thought I was in the minority of watch "watching" when I go on vacation, but I see there are more out there like me. Good to know.

    White gold Rolex is the way to go.

    Only Rollies outside of your Speedy? And precious metal Rollies? The nerve of some people!!

    Makes a nice change. Work is mainly IWCs with a few Cartiers and Breitlings thrown in.

    Definitely a good holiday hobby.

    Can now add a full yellow gold Sub to the list!
