Variety 2

Another trawl through some of the great watches that are available today and maybe we don’t see too often.  Once again this selection are what I’d call in the affordable price range and some good value items.  Almost all of them are common in one respect and that is, you can be pretty certain that your friends won’t have one – but will after they see your new wrist wear!  My image here is a collage as before with brief details below and in no particular order.

Only 6 are shown here as one of them, the Junghans, has a sideways shot, showing it’s unusual crown/pusher set up and it’s 9.6mm case depth.

  • Junghans Megasolar Spektrum, stainless & ceramic, solar quartz, 100m WR, – 43.5mm diameter (£600)
  • Fortis B42 Flieger Black, Auto, Day/Date Titan Limited model at 42mm diameter (£600 – £1500)
  • Bruno Sohnle Glashutte Rebito, 42mm diameter (£380)
  • Schaumburg GT “Raceclub”, Auto – 46mm diameter (£900)
  • Askania Templehof in steel, Auto – 42mm diameter (£850 – £1300)
  • Schaumburg Regulator, hand winding, 50m WR, 42mm diameter (£850 – £1300)

I’ve listed the case diameters this time, as there are too many models out there that are unfortunately ruined by being way oversize and just too big for comfort.  So I’m doing a gentle bit of championing the smaller guys.  But let’s not be silly here – most of the models shown here are all decent size, as all are over 40mm (remember many Patek Philippe models are around 36mm and don’t look silly on ANYBODY’s wrist!!).

More varieties in future posts.

Note Prices are only a rough guide and may range from pristine pre-owned to new models.

Bruno update

Bruno Söhnle

Bruno Söhnle

Some time ago and in a previous post I waxed lyrical about the Bruno Söhnle watch I bought and this is simply a confirmation that it has been a wonderful purchase.

In fact so delighted I have been with this one that I am definitely buying another – when I get it I will of course feature it here.


But before I do I intend to feature one of my older watches which has proved to have been a great buy – especially if you’re in the market for a Tritium light source watch.


Traser H4 Tritium

The Traser H3 Classic Alarm Big Date – an outstanding and very well made Ronda 5040.B Swiss Quartz model.

Coming soon….
