About

Updated 17th May 2019

My website is a personal one, not commercial.  It is not intended to be about the newest, the latest or the most expensive watches, as there are many sites featuring just that.  Rather this site was and still is to a certain extent about watches I collect.  Range price-wise these range from low to mid prices, with the odd expensive one thrown in plus some vintage models.  But most will be watches I own or have owned and more importantly – wear.
But of course things change and my collection certainly does and is only so big – around 130 watches today, so I quite often feature and comment on watches or watch subjects of interest to me, where I want to express what is a truly unbiased and personal opinion – no vested interests with, or to, the watch trade, manufacturer or media.

Under “Tech info” (on side menu) – you’ll find some technical bits and pieces I’ve found useful at times – from watch hands to Serial Numbers and Instructions, battery cross reference charts and so on.  I hasten to add that all the information, links and so on are of course copyright of the originators.  Where known, I make reference to that fact (if you or any originator has trouble with this – please let me know).   All data shown is available on public pages and web sites as far as I am aware.

I’ve since added various “watch links” to sites of interest, from Upmarket and “What’s New”, to Retro and Vintage, PLUS links to practical aspects such as Straps and Accessories.

Additionally over these last few years, I’ve seen an increase in viewers, noticeable when featuring stuff I can’t afford! (never my intention when I started out) – but as these appear to be well received and fun – no problem!   😉

I’ve also added a few pages including Auction News, Bargain basement, Elegant watch archive, Art (watches) video embedded links, Commentary, Soapbox plus Watch of the week.  These may not be updated too often, but we’ll see how it goes.

I have recently (Dec 2020) added a page called Art View – which is a small fun sideline I do, which displays a few of my art representations of places I’ve been over many years.  Just a bit of fun, but I like doing it, as these remind me of nice places in happier times, without trawling through old photographs – Covid therapy, I call it – and why not?

NOTE – (if any of the links fail to work please let me know and I’ll either update them or delete them).

To those who visit – I offer you a  very warm welcome to WatchSpace.
