Top notch as always Ferg.

You've been busier than ever with Ins and Outs.

Even more amazing is that you have (eventually) branched out beyond CW, with your Seamaster; which is a corker.

As opposed to a Dubliner, of course.

Just brilliant. Thank you for taking the time to share.

Great and varied collection of CWs Ferg, you have been busy wheeling and dealing over the past two years! I note there are some empty slots to fill in that second watch box!

Out of interest have you been tempted by a BC?

Yes very busy !!! :D

Three empty watch slots indeed..........
Saying that, I always say this however nothing major in my sights at the moment. Still paying off some of them and want to get that more or less sorted before I think of adding anything else.
A potential is a C9 GMT Silver Dial and/or maybe another Omega but older, around the era of my Seamaster. I like the Speedmaster MK 4.5 for instance.

I also meant to mention that I am now down to owning just one Quartz watch in my collection.
I just wasn't wearing them hence they got sold.
The C7 Bluebird is the watch I've owned for the longest and it won't be sold.
It also doesn't get much wear, generally occasional wear of an evening after work perhaps but I love it.

@MiniMpi I did much the same and moved the C70s on. They were lovely watches but didn’t get worn. I have no quartz at all apart from a solar/RC G-shock I wear for the gym.

A top notch collection of CWs Ferg. :thumbup:

It is always interesting to see the arrivals and departures. I was shocked to see that you had moved on the blue Dartmouth. :shock:

Thanks Neil, yes I know.....it was a stunner to be fair but it was a means to and end at the time along with another watch to buy something else.
The Black Dial Dartmouth has a different vibe but still a stunner also.

We really do have a similar taste in what we like in watches! Ferg, your collection is magnificent! Like yourself, there’s just one quartz in my collection. The departure that surprised me the most was the C9 Small Seconds, a personal favorite of mine. But, I can see that you kept the C9 Jumping Hour, a really nice watch that fills the same niche. And what you have added is most impressive! That Omega is a great compliment to your collection of CW’s! Well done & fantastic photos as always. :clap:
