I am not a connoisseur or collector of watches but with 'Seiko Orange Monster' it was love at first sight. Now this Seiko Automatic diver's 200m is part of my daily accessory!!

My Time Machines

1. Bought these humble fast track watches while I was in college and yeah even now they are on duty.

2. Casio G Shock - This is my favourite watch, as many have said this watch is abuse friendly so will be mostly wearing it for workouts and outdoors.

3. Casio Edifice 539D - presented by my parents after my graduation last year and this is my first premium watch. I am loving it

I had read a lot about this watch, but I had not seen it in the shops yet. That was until last weekend, when I was visiting my home country the Netherlands. So I splashed out and bought it. Very happy with it!

Nice one congrats!!
What's the strap on this one and is it a pin buckle or a deployment ?

Wear it in good health.

Watches I own:

- 3 HMT Kohinoors (technically 4, including my grandfather's 55 year old Kohinoor which works perfectly- but perpetually has a layer of fog inside of the glass which goes when i keep it on top of the cooker and reappears later).

- HMT Janata

- HMT Pilot

- HMT NASS

- Orient Automatic

- Titan Automatic

- Omega Geneve manual 1966 (recently overhauled for 19k)

- several Maximas (excellent quality, they use the Seiko Epson movement)

- Timex dual time analog

- couple of LED watches

- a cheap skeleton watch

- a Kenneth Cole

Always wanted to buy a skeleton watch & here I have one
Hello,

Nice watch. I too want to buy a skeleton watch. But now one Titan skeleton model I saw is being quoted at around 20K. Different model of course.

Can you please share your model No. and name.

Then I can search specifically for it.

Off to a couple of week's holiday and the following 2 wrist partners travelling with me

An Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 'Thames Edition' on black alligator strap with deployment clasp for all those jeans and t-shirt moments and A Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref: 5017 in yellow gold for evening dinner times and formal dress occasions.

Though its very hard to leave my beloved JLC behind but c'est la vie.

As Usual I will let the pictures do the talking.

Lovely choices for your vacation. I would have equally had a hard time in leaving out the JLC.

Hi

This guy has a small shop in Janakpuri close to the C3 road, right opposite Orchid Hospital. Look out for Pishori Chicken wala and the adjoining Watch Repair shop is the one I am talking about. He usually opens in the afternoon and closes by 8.

A bit moody, but the guy is a genius.

Let me know if any other info is required.
