    First big watch purchase - Hopefully an Heirloom in the future

    I am an avid lover of all things Seiko - almost half my collection is from the brand after all - but I've always wanted something that's unequivocally me. I wanted a brand with some history and flair but that wasn't terribly mainstream. A brand that an enthusiast could spot from a few feet away...

    Redial? Something mysterious about this little guy...

    That's great news and very comforting! I had an older Seamaster that had been redialed early in its life, around the 70s or 80s, and that seemingly made me paranoid about redials. The Tavannes has been given love regularly and never ceases to make me happy feeling the bumper wobble around during...

    The perfect Seikos

    Very handsome watches! I tend to try and avoid having watches I don't wear but they certainly are quite the set of lookers. I quite fancy the first and last ones. The two-tone and romans of the first are things you don't really see in modern Seikos especially with that dressy handset, it's...

    New addition to the family!

    I'm a diehard Seiko fan, it was my first ever watch and by far the most prevalent brand in my collection. I'm a young collector and my current goal is to learn more about vintage watches and the history they bring with them. All of this combined to influence my purchase of a Seiko King Quartz...

    The perfect Seikos

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. The Sarb033 and Sarb035 both have the 6R15 movement which is an auto. Spring drives are nearly 10x the price.

    The perfect Seikos

    I am a firm believer that everyone needs to handle a SARB033/035 at some point in their life. The case shape, dial design, dimensions, and handset just ooze class. They punch way above their weight class and have both earned a forever spot in my collection. I have a bit of a Seiko addiction but...

    The Seagull 1963 is out again, finally in some sun, right before it snowed hard this afternoon.

    My new favorite daily

    I quite like the color and style the Spoleto has in combination with the 1963. I'm always looking for a better option though since I think it's a little thick at around 4mm. I have some more vintage 18mm straps on the way, I'll post pictures when they're here hopefully later this week.

    Put the Cyma on a steel stretch bracelet. Love it!

    Redial? Something mysterious about this little guy...

    I recently acquired a vintage Cyma that I adore. After doing some research, I have yet to find a single watch that matches every aspect of mine, namely the CYMA logo (either printed or applied), hands, indices, font of the numerals, the shape of the applied arrowheads, case/lug design, dial...

    I've been wearing a mixture of my Cyma Tavannes and my Seagull 1963, both are lovely little watches.

    My new favorite daily

    My Seagull 1963 reissue finally came in recently and I am totally enamored by it. It wears so well and looks so handsome that I fear my other watches might get far less wrist time than they're used to. The nato it came with wasn't good nor bad but I was planning on swapping it out as soon as I...
