Writer, computer artist, photographer and watch collector. Packed up my Art and Art Collecting sites now owing to health and time restrictions, but still keep my hand in regarding my watch blog.
Here on my blog I can share my Collecting, comments and experiences with anyone who cares to view. I also occasionally contribute to Watch collecting forums and magazines.

  • Casio, Breitling and Briston?

    An Ana/Digi or analogue and digital, but with that definite classic Briston look, which still features the wonderful Italian Acetate case design

  • The Cartier contradiction . .

    It is I suppose these models blithely fly along just under the radar in the “must have” stakes and yet, for me personally, I think out of all Cartier models, the Solo range are the ones you would be a fool to pass up, given the opportunity to own one.

  • FM202 Dome watch

    Simple white face on which rotates blue hands. Hours, minutes and seconds Plus a Power Reserve indicator, so you know, how long it has to run – without either simply keeping it on your wrist, or winding it – your choice

  • Junkers – revival & update

    Another feature is in the wearing.  It is one of those watches that for whatever reason, just feels right on the wrist, it is extremely comfortable and a delight to wear and certainly makes me interested in enlarging my Junkers collection

  • Heavenly De Bethune

    The movement is automatic (self winding), twin barrel with a 6 day reserve, with a special triple shock absorbing system

  • Classic Expedition update July ’21

    Well here we are some 7 years later after the last battery change.  The watch is still working perfectly,

  • Through and through.

    This watch has a proper Sapphire crystal over a superbly made and subtly dark coloured, high strength Zirconia full hollow ceramic case.  And being hollow, the entire movement working detail can be seen from either front or back, so a true skeleton.

  • Simple complication

    it’s one of those models that Casio are very, very good at. It looks good, it’s really quite simple to use, yet with amazing complications, easy to see, very accurate, neat on the wrist – and it’s very difficult to beat – AND it is VERY affordable.

  • A favourite designer

    The Date window @between 4 & 5 is unusual with the triangle background, again giving it a ‘look’ which is both interesting and clear.

  • Double Date

    The watch dial is also round, but the case, not quite so and overall it is VERY clear to read.  Add this to the large effective Date indication @6 and what we have is a really nice watch.
