No legacy stuff, but bought myself a bling-bling LED watch for about $15.
a) shows time every 15 mins, can be set not to.
b) has about 7 intensity levels, currently on the lowest and still readable in direct sunlight.
c) attention grabber.

Time piece for attention grabbing, you need to check Mr. Flavor flav.

@Rocky - It's an attention grabber for sure, and the price you paid is good. Could you please post some wrist shot?

@Hviswanantahan - Nice collection.

But the Patek Philipe, Movado and Longiness looks like replica. Maybe its because of how the photos was taken. I know its a rude thing to say, but I hope you take it as a innocent query from a person with genuine interest in horology.

Can you please let me know the model of the Longines.

Also please share the model number of the Constantine? Is it the new Toledo ?. White Gold /Platinum?

If its platinum , you are one of the luckiest 100 people in the world and I am your best friend

@Rocky- Too good.Love the watch !!!

Hello Guys

Anyone of you using a Atomic Timekeeping watch with Radio-Controlled Accuracy ?
Like Citizen Skyhawk
Do they work fine in India as the Stations are in USA Japan and Germany and I guess u need to be in 1500KMS radius to get a signal.
Please let me know if anyone of you using it , I am planning to buy 1 but not sure will they work in India or not.

Well, here goes a shot of most of my watches together in one place. This obviously doesn't include those my wife has...

My wife gifted me a Seiko 5, automatic recently. It has a lovely blue/voilet dial. All steel. The sweeping seconds hand gives a retro feel. I am loving it. Shall post a pic at the first opportunity. Next on list is Seiko Kinetic. Any reviews?
