Just finished cleaning and taking the scratches out of the crystal on this cal. 98 Junghans from the 50‘s. Ordered it yesterday off ebay and to my surprise it arrived this morning.

Just arrived. 1972-73 Hamilton Aqua Diver. Not sure if it's going to be a keeper or not just yet, but it's definitely cool.

I like the look of that movement.
Nice pick up!
I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

I was pleasantly blown away by this one. Hands down the best mesh I’ve ever owned. Amazing deal and an amazing Swiss watch. Oozes quality. The case finishing is ridiculous at this price. Puts all $1000 competitors to shame, for $379.

Plastic still on the clasp:

Stopped by TK Maxx (German version of TJ Maxx) and saw this for €90 ($102). Figured it was time for my first solar powered watch.

Here’s the Mondaine I bought my wife. I love how it has tritium on the hands and markers. Very cool. This was the ToM sale, FYI.

Finally got to unbox my Edox moonphase. This watch is totally badass looking in an understated way.

These Diver 1000s are just a lot of watch for $209. Cool dial and markers, solid bracelet, HEV, etc.

My second (at 40mm, a good fit for me.)

Just my $0.02 USD as always.

My turquoise dial Karon arrived from Maranez' Chinese New Year Sale. I sold a red jasper version to buy this one. I love the blue. In the right light, you can also see the natural cracks running through the turquoise which is way cool! It is huge, but I don't really care. It is one of my swimming pool watches.

It also has the unreal Maranez lume!

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with this watch but it's beautiful. Is it bronze? I've started my own bronze collection and like the look of that a lot.

Wear it in good health.

Thank you! The turquoise is very nice. They actually have several natural stone dial versions. The case is brass though, not bronze. You can see all their watches at maranez.com, but unfortunately, the 20% off sale is over. Still, they are not too expensive even at regular price.
