    Let's see'em guys. As Pat Benatar said "hit me with your best shot". (I'm such an 80's nerd sometimes ::shy:: )


    I'll throw out a few to start.

    This was shot free hand - no tripod with the watch on my wrist. The light in my bay window is pretty good for catching the mother of pearl dial. I'm waiting to use this in a Breitling masthead contest.

    This shot has just the right amount of reflection. It could be better - I could have gotten a better angle so the date shows in the cyclops evenly - but it shows off the dial furniture nicely.

    Gotta include this since it won a Longines masthead contest.

    This last one is not mine - it's by Chaotic Bliss, a multi-forum member who hardly drops in anywhere any more. Pity too, because this is a great shot.

    Thanks Dennis. That case back is one of the reasons why I love the 2254.

    Dennis, I like your signature. Here is a zoom of the vintage print on my stopwatch. Feel free to use it.

    Best shot? Too hard to pick, as different pics appeal in different ways... I love the way the late sun brings out the golden tones of this Swatch...

    But then I also like the 'technical' look of a Breitling with an aircraft maintenance manual....(I know it's a diver, but Breitling and aviation always mix well )

    And it was fun experimenting with a bit of light and colour to bring out the best of this F1

    [​IMG]

    And of course, tomorrow I'll feel completely different.....

    Very easy to wear, bracelet is really confortable. The A/R coated is incredible compared to récent Rolex IMHO

    If I recall correctly, Rolex only A/R coat the sapphire under the date magnifier, nowhere else, but know what you mean, the flat crystal of my 1680 picks up reflections from everywhere

    Is that a monopusher chronograph with minutes and seconds counted by the same hand?

    Hello, It's an alarm watch. It's a vintage Vulcain Crciket. The topmost button at 2 :00 is to set the alarm time and also to stop it.

    The crown at 3:00 is to wind both the watch (turning it downwards) and also to wind the alarm (turning it upwards.) This watch is also sometimes referred to as the president's watch.
