  1. Thanks Paul, I had the Samurai but I admit I never jelled with it. First impression out of the box was "WOW" the dial is amazing, then the love died out for some reason. If the style suits you it is a great watch, it just turned out to not be my cup of tea in the end. Keep your eye out around the forums, they do appear now and again. If I see one I will let you know.
  2. Well, I have spent a lot of time recently on my Seiko habit - not sure how long these will be part of the collection but here they are; my Citizens are all safely in their beds!

    Photo taken this morning before we set off for the Isle of Wight. It is my little secret, I never usually admit to owning it! Quartz, narrow case, easy to read dial- as long as I don't need to see the date - comfortable and I can also wear it to the office without any shirt sleeve snagging.

    My holiday trio. Shogun for the beach, Moonwatch for the bar, B-42 to find my way to the bathroom!
  5. Well, it had to be this one today really..
  6. I had 2 actually! The first was a bracelet version but I could never get it to fit properly, I was in between link sizes. The 2nd had a chrono hand that didn't line up properly so that one had to go. This one is just the ticket. I am now trying to make myself move a few of my collection on to good homes - I just can't bring myself to did it though, I really like every watch I have at the moment. In reality I will buy a bigger watch box!
  7. I have been after another Bulova moonwatch, and was waiting patiently for pay day to scroll around again. Well it did eventually, and thanks to Robden who came up trumps with this little (maybe not so little actually!) beauty, I have one again. I had forgotten how much I liked them actually. Everything on this one lines up nicely, lovely sweep of the chrono hand, comfortable, firm but smooth button action, gorgeous case design and that lovely multi-dimension dial. Oh, I was going to swap the strap out as well but, since my Tropic experience, I have taken to the vintage style and the strap will stay. Crumbs, I forgot to mention the subtle shade of blue lume as well, fantastic watch! I seem to have cycled back toward quarts at the moment, although I do wear my Shogun much, much more now I have it on a Tropic rather than the now beat up bracelet. Here they are, and thanks for bearing with me Rob..
  8. Watch display boxes

    Quite at bit more at £90 and possibly not what you are looking for, but I recently ordered one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004EYSKOQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Nice quality and really shows off your watch collection. I justified the price against the cost of one Isofrane watch strap! Here is mine anyway:

    My excalibur has a new lease of life with this strap. I was never that taken with bracelets, although I did start wearing them and putting up with the scratches. This Tropic style strap looks really nice, the gaps are from too fat spring bars which I "persuaded" into place. I just wish it was the real thing! I love the lume on these as well. For prices less than a ton I don't think you can do much better than a Citizen.

    Dark here today with these rain clouds! All been on today at various times.
  12. My Japanese watches..

    I thought I was bad with, perhaps, 13 or so watches! Its great to see this sort of collection, I wonder how many more like this are out there?
  13. Friday 11 08 2017

    This little number at the moment (although the Orient was on before the new strap for the Shogun arrived).
  14. I thought it about time to post a new collection update. There are a couple of of other brand additions but still mainly Seiko/Citizen based.

    New in today and I am in love already!
