The sign of an experienced, mature collector maybe?
Or someone who has acquired a few OK watches and decided not to give a :silent:

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

The watch i wanted the most over the last 8 years but never had was the Scooter C60. Only one came up As available in the time I coveted it the most, but that wasn’t accessible at the time so didn’t go for it.

No real regrets CW wise, although there was a prototype C5 that I tried on at an archive event and kind of wish I had bought.

However it can’t really be that much of a regret as it has subsequently appeared on SC two or three times and I didn’t go for it.

Did someone mention the C61... :)

Exactly the look I love! Is that, by any chance, a WatchGecko strap? it looks exactly like the one I just purchased for my new C65 AM GT LE?

I even got the same stitching. I thought it would play nicely off the steel bezel.

Alex’s cream C6 Kingfisher automatic. ;) :lol: Since he’s definitely not selling it, maybe a blue LE Kingfisher automatic to match up with the yellow and burnt orange that I have.

Maybe Neil’s orange bezelled prototype would be in the mix too... Funny, they’re all either one offs or LEs. I’d add Guy’s green Trident chrono prototype is there too, but it’s a bit thick for me. I’d still wear it though. :)

Watches are (or should be) fairly low down on the scale of priorities. But I sometimes think we tend to lose sight of that at various points in our journey. It’s just worthwhile occasionally taking a look at what you actually have and learning to be content. Not just watches, either.

I always liked the c5a series. This is the one off that I bought, sold, managed to buy back again and then sold. Mistake!

There’s nothing like a missed opportunity to focus the mind.

I’ve admired the C8 UTC in black DLC for a while. One came up with SC, I almost bagged it, but I dithered - 44 mm Is pretty large, with large dual crowns too. And then, a day, later, it sold.

Then one came up in the July Sale - I tried to buy it - the “Add to Basket” button didn’t function, and it was gone.

Paul that is the one I tried on at the archive event. You then bought it as soon as the watches that were unsold on the night were listed by Wera. I had forgotten you owned it twice! :)

Has to be the C1 Russell, stainless with a white dial.

And probably a more recent small seconds to make a matching pair.

Really? I’d no idea. :lol:

I agree with you about Guy’s C60 Chronograph - I’d take it in a heartbeat.
