NotEnoughWrists-Jan 2019

Post by NotEnoughWrists » Wed Jan 16, 2019 2:17 am

Its been exactly a year since my first SOTC post .
As its been a rather busy year and i currently have no firm plans for any changes, I thought it was the ideal time for an update.

Box 1.

Image

Top row features five hand wound Marloe watches.

Image

The black Cherwell was the start of my collection just over two years ago. This was also the first watch Marloe produced and was crowd funded on Kickstarter. The blue face model was an exclusive to kickstarter backers, but i picked one up earlier this year and dropped it on to a beads of rice bracelet.

Image

The other three are all Marloe Lomonds. Their third model and also a kick starter based project, this is three of the five editions offered (classic white, vintage coffee & panda).

Bottom row.

Image

First up is the Ingersoll Bison 67, a solid, heavy beast of an automatic watch. Next along is the Certina DS2 Precidrive HAQ thats in a fair few collections on here and number three is the Scurfa Bell Diver Auto.

Image

Four and five were sales corner bargains. The lovely Panzera Dornier Flieger 47 from Guy and the equally fine Hamilton Broadway i bought from Unkle Dicky.

Box 2

Image

Image

(1st pic) Skagen Titanium Chrono, Dan Henry 1970 44mm on Hirsh strap, Dan Henry 1963 44mm (also bought from Unkle Dicky in sales corner) and a Pulsar solar chrono (an early purchase, awesome lume and still a favourite)

(2nd pic) Seiko chrono- black face, Nixon 44-100 gunmetal, Gruppo Gamma Diver (from Guy in sales corner) and a Boss Orange New York (another large aluminium billet and 52mm)

Box 3

Image

First two are the work beaters. A Scurfa Diver 1 picked up from ebay as a bargain, due to the bezel markings being fairly worn and not as visible...not an issue at work! the other is a Cerruti 1881 that nobody had bid on, good price and i like the look of it so i won with a cheeky bid (although i smacked it into a concrete floor trap before xmas and the minute hand has come off the spindle!)

Number three is a Fossil on silicon strap, all black apart from a few little accents here and there.

The final three are all Casio edifices/edify or whatever the collective might be?
A white face model with fantastic lume and a couple of Red Bull/Torro Rosso branded ones- i also have 2-3 others stashed away, not sure if i want to keep them or sell them on in the future yet.

Image

Last up is the Nite Icon. It mainly lives at the side of the bed, its tritium glow always ready to tell me the time. It also usually gets to come on holiday with me for the same reason...wouldn't want to be late for breakfast!

As i said at the start, its been a busy old year with watches in and out. I decided at the start of it that sub 40mm watches don't look right on me (i prefer 42mm upwards)- so all the small things are gone!
The only down side is most boxes seem to be a tad narrow and not good for multiple large watches, hence the need to stagger them to minimise them knocking against each other.

I really happy with the collection now and don't really plan on changing it much.
With 50 looming on the horizon (and a house move and holidays), i'm planning on keeping the powder dry to possibly get something a little special next year as a half century marker (still no idea how thats crept up :shock: )
So many watches, yet still so little time!

Missed this somehow!

Truly an eclectic collection.

I am extremely impressed with the Marloe watches and surprised that you don't see now of them.

Edifices are cracking value for money and great to grab and go.

The Ingersoll is a bit of a monster and I didn't realise that the Boss was 50mm! That is huge!

Actually, they are all rather good, and it is hard to beat the Scurfa for value for money isn't it!

Nice to see a collection that is a bit different. (Good choices on the Guy purchases too!!!!)

Don't forget the incoming!!

Very interesting selection you have. My favourites are the Hamilton Broadway and the Dan Henry's I think.

As for not planning to add to the collection, looking in my crystal ball, I confidently predict you will be adding a CW 595 in the very near future :wink:

A definite ABC collection...Wow!

You need to find a space for the 595.

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.

Love the Certina DS2 Precidrive HAQ. Such a gorgeous looking watch. Jealous of the collection.
