My current collection of electric/electronic watches.

Recommended Posts

Kmot    43

I have a small collection of watches. Only recently did I discover the genre of electro-mechanical watches. So I decided I wanted to start a small collection of this type of watch. I am not a person of wealth so my purchases have been humble, and most have required refurbishing by cleaning them up and polishing the metal and crystal if possible. 

This is what I have so far.....

Bulova Accutron, 1974

Hi Tom & welcome.

Although a vintage mechanical devotee I appreciate & enjoy the interest/passion others show for their chosen selection.

Let's see if we can convert you. :biggrin:

Excellent collection mate, the oldies are not really my thing, but I can still appreciate their appeal.  I can imagine some of those were ahead of their time when they were new as well :thumbsup:

Me too, although my on dial test is in pale grey/white rather than red. Not sure if it was made that way or has faded?.....

Hi Robin, well it looks good in grey as well! I suppose it could be faded if the watch had been left where the sun beat on it every day.

Fantastic! You may not be rich, but you've got a great eye for an attractive and interesting watch; some real beauties there. Collections like that what makes horology such an interesting hobby thank you for sharing.

Thank you Thimo for the kind words! :)

Robin S, if your Helbros runs, it's better than mine. Because I put a new battery in it, and it will not start. :(

I got another one. A Stellaris Electronic Transistorized. Judging by the case back, it has the ubiquitous ETA 9154 inside.

PS: My deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the Manchester slaughter...

One more added to the collection. A Belforte. :)

That's stunning! But with the age of the watch, would that be a replacement dial? Please bear in mind I have next to no knowledge of electronic watches
