All I can say is that this is the type of collection I aspire to!

A very kind remark, sir! It has come together by a gradual process of accretion as opposed to any long term plan. I’m very comfortable with it now and some of the core elements have been around long enough to be considered old friends.

Some excellent photographs of what is a very nice collection Steve. It was nice to be reminded of some of the lesser worn watches in there.

Nice to see the one-hander still in your collection Steve - much better than sitting in sales corner!

There are some obvious ones to love (Speedy, Tank, UN) but that Leonidas is also lovely and would have to make my top four.

The MeisterSinger and I have put our troubles behind us. After its sterling service in Egypt it is now a keeper.

The Leonidas is very popular, it seems. I might give it a whirl this weekend! 8)
