Thread: Pushin for some cushion LOL...

  1. #1

    Pushin for some cushion LOL...

    cases that is!

    I use to own a Panerai 111G and missed the cushion case. They are large but wear so well! After the Panerai I longed for the cushion style. Then after the JR 1681 I realized how much I missed the cushion style watch case so entered the Magrette the next month. Here's a few pics of my new cushions and I'm pushin you to try one out if you haven't and asking you to posts your cushions here if you got them!

    Dude, the crown placement on the Magrette is crazy. It's so weird having it there on a cushion case. I like it a lot.



    I still have to decide whether or not I want to get a seconds hand installed or just sell it.



    And this guy still has a busted movement, which I would like to get repaired. So good looking, but it broke almost the second I got it, and I never got the chance to send it in for repairs. Kind of a perfect beater watch too, with the high WR and screwdown pushers.

    Such a '70s thing to my mind, as that was when I started paying attention to watches. I used to have more from that era, many now moved on to others. These are what I have now:

    1978 Bucherer



    Oceanus solar atomic



    1978 GuB Spezimatic



    1974 Sea-Gull ST7 case




    I'll be honest that I'm not sure this very "Japanese" shape of the Orient Somes counts as a cushion case. It has some points in common with old Grand Seikos, not quite in the range of classic cushion but I'll stick it in here anyway.

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    The Sinn T2 has it the crown at 4 as well and I quite like it too. The crown never digs into my wrist.
