    Today I'll probably wear one of these two:

    DSC_0275.JPG

    Both came to me by chance; one was found in a thrift store (the Tissot) and the other came by asking at a shop where they purchase gold for smelting, if they had had any watches handed in - this one was on a solid gold band, and therefore taken in, despite being "only" a common gold capped Constellation. Today they both returned from a trip abroad to my watchmaker (I use the same as a number of Scandinavian watch enthusiast, namely Christian or Mitka at watchguy.co.uk), both ready for a second life as a part of my collection.

    I realise that it was stupid money to service the Tissot, as I'll never recuperate the costs when selling it (eventually), but I couldn't bear not giving it a bit of love - it was sorely needed. Also, I think the design is really nice!

    Perhaps I'll switch to my newest watch later on - the Torgoen T81, which I won in a contest. Surprisingly comfortable on the wrist, attracts compliments like you wouldn't believe it (!), and - get this - extremely precise. For the last few days, it's had a daily deviation of roughly +/- 2 seconds, currently it's at +1 second for the last two days… That's pretty good in my book!!

    At some point in the future not now as I have an incoming Seamaster, I must get a Smiths. Need to start doing my home work on them. Very nice.

    I usually sit in the pointy end of the bus...not today...enroute to a family reunion in TX. Only one thing to do in the back end of the bus...dork with watches. :thumbsup:

    Way before my obsession with watches, I had an '03 in New Formula Red. Lost it in the rain one night going 15mph below the speed limit on new pavement. Still one of my favorite cars ever (but only the AP1), and I still miss it on those perfect 70-degree days... Enjoy!
