As of now don't plan on buying anything as nothing has peaked my interest in a long time.

Just going to enjoy what I have.

Not much of a planner, but I will get the two-tone Diver One when released in April.

I don’t really have a lot on my list anymore, but I’ve been wanting one of these lately.

I’d like to add a BB58 or more likely a blue Pelagos later this summer (which I still haven’t tried in any version). Maybe a Sinn 103.

After selling my first, another Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical (black dial, green Nato). I recently found out that Hamilton carries a bracelet that will fit it, so I may order that.

Still thinking about the new Seiko Alpinist whenever it becomes widely available.

Great additions gents!

@Dave - That Topper LE is the tits :thumbsup:

@Mart - Really like that watch! Even though dimensions are huge for me, still want to try one.

@Jeff - please let me know what bracelet is that.

As for me, I have a big sell off to make (about half my watches), as I want to try a Sinn and an Omega, and maybe buy a small motorcycle.

In addition, I'm selling all my G Shocks that are not 5600, and adding a couple of new 5600's, as both my son and I like them a lot. This is the first watch addition this year:

Image

This is not the original, $500 mode, but a regular 5600 with the gold bezel and strap. I will not put down $500 for a G-Shock with a lot of features I will not use (bluetooth connectivity, etc).

Per a thread on WUS, it's bracelet part no. H605694101 - the endlinks are supposed to fit the khaki mechanical, and the bracelet is bead blasted to match the case. I think you have to call Hamilton's customer service and order it directly. Supposed to cost around $150.

Here's the thread:

Nothing yet. I need to free up some space first if I want a couple new ones.

Yes, planned for an April release.

Paul said there may also be a two-tone bracelet in the works.

He showed it on the rubber strap.

smooth, just a little bit of play. I would prefer it be a little harder to turn but all in all its good
