Got a few TW Steel oversize too...my current favourite the Yamaha Moto GP edition.

Does anyone have a Zenith? Are the a good watch and ol on value? Some of their semi skeletal ones look beating to me.

well that's burst the bubble.

Thanks for that. I destroy watches and the Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military is lovely for the money.

Other high quality brands which are inexpensive and use Swiss movements (mainly ETA) are Christopher Ward and Archimede

Happy hunting!

Got to say lads this thread is awesome to say the least. Some nice time pieces.

I went through a phase years ago and bought not what was hot but what I liked. They are all well looked after ans serviced etc but all I wear now is a fitbit.

Just added this one

Hi Teaston,

The First picture is off my Double red seadweller mk2 thin case .

I collect watches and have several vintage Rolex and a assortment of modern pieces,

I am quite new to the vintage pieces but at the moment I enjoy them more because they are rare , And good examples are even harder to find

Some of the rare ones like that shown have both names on them, expensive items.

The big red Daytona is eye wateringly so:

The Daytona in the Chrono24 link, Isn't that great either. The secondhand with the red tip is incorrect and been taken from a early Milgauss, The lume plots on the dial are all different colours, probably been relumed and several are missing,

PS nice to see this thread all taken in the right spirit.

It went oear shaped in the M3 forum at about post 5 with some of the tools from the M5 forum wading in with Micky Mouse watches for those 'only' driving &60-70k cars with only 431 HP.

Precisely the arrogance that does my head in with BMW.


Great range of watches here from the mighty to Garmin Fenix and my TWSteels.

No one got a working Casio calculator watch?...I had one as a kid....lol whoops!
