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.

  • Heat by Nixon

    So I love the neat size, it has enough useful functions to honestly use and the price is not unreasonable.

  • Wrist cuff watches

    The leather strap/cuff of each is a different colour and from a fashion conscious guy, really quite smart – and it tells him the time without referring to his Smart Phone – now isn’t that a novelty!

  • Rado & diamonds

    That little bit different, feminine – I mean diamonds for goodness sake and for once, not Quartz, so, no how do I change the battery issue? if I’m not around to help.

    Note – Two things my Wife never does – wash the car and change a watch battery – sensible girl!

  • A favourite 5 – Limited Edition

    Diameter wise it around 40mm without the crown, which, by the way does NOT screw-down.  However it says on the dial 10Bar, so it’s not too shabby, but hardly a serious Diver if truth be told – but good enough for the Diver in us all!

  • Classic Ladies LeCoultre

    The unique button markers are an integral part of the case and are situated surround the small original acrylic crystal covered dial.

  • Minimalist

    Their web site shown quite a few variants, with minimalism and simplicity being the theme running through the range. And for the price, these are what I call very neat fashion style watches, which to my mind are just the thing for gifts to cheer someone up. 

  • Breitling Aerospace – re-post!

    The Breitling on the left shows just how good the anti-reflection coating is and how clever the hands/display clarity actually is and note how the digits stand out – it always impresses me! 
    whilst I’ve bought  many watches over the years since, this is still my favourite watch – and that says it all.

  • Eco or Auto Diver?

    Quartz battery, Eco-Drive solar, hybrid Kinetic and so on, despite being modern technological ideas, in comparison to the old bumper mechanical “self wind” technology, actually seem somewhat lacking in practical terms. 

  • Longines vintage

    with it’s amazing fancy lugs is one of my favourites

  • My “everyday” chalk & cheese?

    But I thought just for fun, I’d have a look again at what constitutes a true everyday watch and with a bias towards the ubiquitous “recreational”  or “diver like” models, because these as mostly provide features I’d consider what an everyday watch should have, often as standard.
