SOTC

Post by andy tims » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:45 am

Not done an SOTC for a while, so here's the current collection.

This is about my 4th G-Shock - finally got one that's not too big

Image

My first Zenith, picked up last year & I love it

Image

Reacquired this from the person who bought it off me 9 years previously

Image

Took me a while to track one of these down in the right condition, for the right price

Image

Probably the last watch I'd sell - The 16600 is just perfect

Image

Quite a rare version of the FF. A much better size for me than the regular version, although 42mm would be even better.

Image

I only have the PRS18 auto (on the left). The COSC Quartz version got almost no wear

Image

Another requisition

Image

This was a cheapy & has served me really well as my holiday watch including the epic motorcycle tour of Vietnam I did with my eldest son in 2018

Image

I had a few of the re-edittion Turtles, but this one has stuck

Image

I'd been without a Speedy Pro in the collection for several years before picking this mint condition one up

Image

This was a slightly over-list replacement for one I (foolishly) sold a couple of years earlier

Image

I've had this little gem for a while. The dial and hands are just beautiful.

Image

I'm a big Sinn fan - had all these a few years now

Image

Image

Image

Image

Just about the last watch IWC made that I really like

Image

The Autavia's

Image

The perfect (for me) version of the Orfina PD chrono

Image

I paid strong money for this at the time, but that's irrelevant now. It's a full collectors set including case back stickers & the original purchase receipt.

Image

The only watch I've ever had made for me

Image

A lovely un-restored 6309 - 7040

Image

Three I keep for sentimental reasons

Image

Image

Image

I've just sold a Seiko Samurai & have a blue dialled Sinn U1 on the way.

These days I try to keep to one in / one out, but deciding which to let go gets harder all the time.

Whew nice collection...I am wishing I overpaid for a red sub a few yrs ago. Not to mention the collection of autavias...I have to ask do you wear all of these? A few of them were so perfect I would be scared to enjoy them.

Apart from the last 3 they do all get worn, albeit some more sparingly than others.

Always good to see the latest 'state of' from Andy - whatever the model they are always pristine examples!

Cheers again.

Not sure I'd call the 6309-7040 pristine though ;)

I was wondering who was hoarding the Autavia's. Nice hoard Andy!
