A vintage Howard wrist watch. I was attracted to it for the "Howard" name, but also liked the smaller size (30mm) and obvious vintage presentation. It has a Swiss A.Schild caliber 1287 or 1294. I was through my box this morning and decided to throw it on for the day. C&O'd about a year ago. She, or should I say he (Girl named Howard?) is running nicely upon winding. Cheers all.

Today I'm wearing the newest addition to my collection, a Casio MTP V006G.

Having had a number of digital Casios over the years, I've always wanted to try an analogue Casio. And I've always wanted a watch with Roman numerals, though that somehow always escaped me. So this one was very appealing to me and I'm enjoying it very much. 20210128_153303.jpg

I bought one a couple years ago because of the dial. It's become the go to watch for any sort of bad weather. It's very comfortable to wear and seems indestructible. Love it


Today I have my new eco drive. After an unreasonable amount of deliberation... This is the one that I went with. It came with a bracelet, and I grabbed a black leather for it for some diversity.

Also have the Overland today in Pocket.

Glad to hear! I too love the dial, so simple and clean, yet so crisp and well made. I think it is very comfortable as well and do believe it will be with me for many years, if not decades.

Beautiful Elgin by the way. And the Citizen is not too shabby, either :).

@ viclip,
Yes, in the early 50's, Lip Elgiloy was born out of Lip's collaboration with Elgin.
Lip used Elgin's unbreakable springs until 1957 (end of collaboration with Elgin and Elgiloy is no longer used on the dials).

Swatch Irony aluminum chronograph. The original black plastic band was really brittle but I was recently able to find a NOS silicone band with a signed aluminum buckle.

Great little Swatch chronograph - I have one too. My Europe travel watch - when we were allowed to go to Europe. Original strap with the little dimples to make it look somewhat like a tire is called “Wildly” and back on the Swatch website.

I had this one on for a bit today. It just got a new crystal, crown, and Hadley-Roma leather band. A complete COA must wait until I decide what new cleaning solutions to buy.

I've got a thing for these rather classic styles. And I find Girard Perregaux watches to be a very good value for an excellent timekeeper with that classic style.

A couple of weeks back I was asking about substitute tools for pressing the tension-ring crystal in. I ended up giving to a friend to have her watchmaker install it for me. The first size I ordered from a "bay" seller was too small. Second time was the charm. Cheers all.

Baylor "Victor"

Powered by a manual wind AS 1240 having 17 jewels, the teal dial ring & the red central sweep strongly suggest that this is a 1950s production.

Quite the snazzy color combination if you ask me.

I still have my polka dot vest somewhere in the bedroom closet. And my blue suede shoes (the ones with the pink shoe laces). They'll nicely complement this wristwatch.

Today I am wearing an Amsterdam Sauer Naval Hero 100. This is a modele depose watch from a famous Brazilian jewelry store. A little internet research showed that this is originally made and sold by Candino.

Nicely finished watch with a pleasant mix of finishings and a very comfortable bracelet. Has been with me since 1994. AS.jpeg

This was lost for many months!!

After searching high and low... Hope was lost and this watches role was replaced by an eco-drive.

This morning my phone fell into "the abyss". You know, that area between the car seat and the console... Well after fishing out the phone I noticed the end of the strap sticking up... Sort of like it was reaching for help. From the depths of the unknown I pulled out my trusty friend here!

I figure that it was tossed on the seat when cutting someones lawn last year and just pushed into the hole.

It's got to be over 4 years old (I think). Runs perfectly. Takes a beating like a champ. It's that one watch is worn consistently that never needs attention.

Guess I can stop abusing that flashy new Citizen chronograph.

After seeing the recent and wonderful photos of a BAYLOR and a LIP, I’m feeling a bit “...and here’s another obscure brand, murdered by the Quartz Crisis.” A once proud, post-WW2 start-up based in Spain / made in Switzerland, known a Radiant. To honor the first Formula One season to kickoff without Englishman Murray Walker who passed last week at the age of 97, here’s a 1970s Radiant Bi-Compax Chronograph, powered by a Landeron 149. 472942A6-3673-4686-AE3C-9956BCF52912.jpeg

Wentworth (made in Hong Kong) that I found in my collection. Not bad, but has no sweep second hand.....not sure if it ever did. Dial is in rough shape. Just wearing it today to see how it runs.
