    What's being blogged about at IWL?

    Currently Blogging on IWL


    Want to learn more about the watches worn by German soldiers in the 1940s? Churchy takes a closer look.

    Churchy also brings us a look at British soldier watches from the same era.

    Is the air more your thing? Care for more of an Airwolf feel? More in the Eaglemoss Military Watches Collection, take a look at Russian pilot watches from the 1980s.

    Have you ever tried to explain to someone the why behind your watch obsession? I take a shot at it with mixed results.

    Comments are always welcome! New content is being added in the IWL blog section regularly, so please swing by!

    Another update:

    Churchy takes a look at the watches of French soldiers and British naval officers. He also gives us an insight as to why one takes up blogging in the first place. Some really interesting insights!

    I take a look at the importance of the having a watch you don't have to worry about and the watch that I don't worry about in my own collection. This is a long one, folks, so grab your coffee or your tea and find a comfortable chair with some decent lumbar support.

    And, our very own Jeannie shares a precious memory of her childhood days, a beautiful reminder of the innocence we leave behind as time so inevitably marches on.

    Give it it a read! Comments, as always, are plenty welcome.

    It's good to keep reminding us about this part of IWL. I have been intending to write some thoughts about vintage watches or ... other things. Maybe a bit like your good essay on what makes you attracted to this odd hobby. We'll see if I can find some time.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    Blogs don't have to be limited to watches. So if you have other interests you want to share, feel free.
