Interesting collection you have Chris and the White Trident doesn't look out of it's depth on the top row.
Staghorn and Samurai are my type of watch.

All British designs in the future - interesting idea, but sounds expensive.
Lets see how long it takes before you see a non-Brit bargain!

Good luck with it though.
Current collection incl Alpina, Breitling, Casio, Citizen, Eterna, Omega, Oris, Rado, Rolex, Seiko, Tag, Timex & Tudor.

Interesting collection Chris.
I have a Sekonda pocket watch that looks very similar in design to yours given to me by my late Uncle. I'm assuming yours is a Soviet era watch as well? Struggling to make out the text on the dial.

There's some excellent stuff on the top shelf, but that Staghorn is my favourite by a country mile. Design and colours are absolutely spot on and I love the way the weekday complication is done.

Thanks for sharing :thumbup:

It is a Soviet era, you are correct :thumbup: I dont know much about it to be honest. Maybe I should try and find out a little more of the history. I also used to have an old, gold, Avia which belonged to my great grandad, but I had it restored and gave it to Mum for her 60th birthday. The Staghorn is my own personal favourite design wise etc.. I bought it last May and up until I bought the Bremont there wasn’t many days I didn’t wear it. If somebody told me I could only keep 2, it would be the Staghorn and the Bremont.
