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.

  • Bauhaus by name

    there’s something about the subtle and under-stated design, from the small numeral delicacy and the two-tone asymmetric width hands, that just lifts them to a higher level

  • Ressence – disk

    there are 5 models in all, each with a different aspect and look, but with the same integral patented three-dimensional complication or ROC – the Ressence Orbital Convex  system.

  • Feice Bauhaus – Budget or Bargain?

    But for Fiece, the clever idea of using the Bauhaus concept and promoting to the global market promoted with – Form, Function and a certain marketing seriousness, hasn’t hindered them in their mass market approach and by increasing the quality is a real bonus.

  • 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.
