Really nice collection. I like the Stowa--it's got a really classic look to it. Reminds me a bit of an Alpina Startimer Classic I had for a while. Also, really like the Omegas and Breitling. How has the Breitling treated you? I have a TH Monza, but I think I might want to sell that at some point for another chrono. The one thing that bothers me with the Monza is that whenever I operate the pushers, it feels like I'm about the break something inside the watch. I'm looking for something with more of a sturdy movement. Prior to the Monza, I had a Hamilton Jazzmaster Chrono, but that also felt a little too fragile. I consider Breitling to offer some really excellent chronos, like the navitimer.

Navitimer is actually at horological services for a rather spendy service. The second hand was in contact with the minute hand at certain times of day so needs reset and doing movement service as same time. Take a look at the vintage top time breitling if navi too busy for your taste.

Stowa is probably my most comfortable watch, due to thin profile, barely know it's on.

Also have a Monaco, longines master chrono moonphase and legend diver, oris 65 with bronze bezel, Hamilton IM68 and few other things. Tudor bb58 in the works.

Hamilton pilot in the picture was sold and the tissot luxury powermatic 80 is for sale now as well.

i like your style.

every one of those pieces is on a wishlist for me. i really want a bronze diver and that oris could be my next purchase. i'd really love a tudor BB bronze, but until kids' college tuition is done, i cant justify it.

Thanks sir, keep trying to weed things out and add little at time. Still thinking about a worldtimer, of some sort, a jlc memovox, an el primero and a vintage omega dress watch but who knows.

I have tried to remember to put a watch on but mostly they are just sitting. It's usually part of my business ensemble but now that I wear a tshirt to work at home I haven't been wearing my watches.

Dr. Fauci was wearing what looked like a Timex Ironman today. Wouldn’t surprise me. He seems like a really nice, humble gentleman. My Timex Expedition is one of my favorite watches. Dr. Fauci is from Brooklyn, and a Yankee fan. What more do you want? He has a way of putting things in perspective with that calm voice. Then after he’s done speaking, you walk away saying to yourself, we’re screwed.

Chopard Mille Miglia

I wear this chronograph on most days. Iíll post others when I put them on. Chopard makes a limited number of the Mille Miglia watches every year to commemorate the Mille Miglia race. It is a 1000 mile race from Brescia to Rome and back. Hereís a link to the circuitous route:

https://1000miglia.it/wp-content/upl...-1200x1696.jpg

This watch is from the early 1990s, and features a replica of a vintage Dunlop racing tire for a band. Fun Thread!

Repping the USA

Got this for birthday from brother...
45mm Deep Blue Diver PC Tritium, sapphire face, polycarbonate body, 16 tritium tube markers. Thing's bulletproof to 200m. Swiss quartz movement because I'm cheap about servicing automatics. Took the #1 spot from my Seiko Orange Sport 5 and Hamilton Khaki.
