Search "Rare Watch" on eBay and you'll find there are hundreds! All the sellers seem to think their offerings are rare!

I was asking members what they had, not e bay.  By that rationale why visit any watch forum when there is e bay? :whistle:

No Timex here, sorry! 

I would say this one as I haven't seen another where the flower moves around instead of a second hand ticking.  :king:

Also, this Swordfish, free from Currys with a Mini Disc player in the late 1990s IIRC.  Only had one battery change and still working perfectly.  :king:

One of my rarest :

To the very observant Omega WIS, it would appear to be a case from a tuning fork model with the dial from an automatic Seamaster. What lurks inside is actually far rarer than either of the mismatched external components.

This watch houses an Omega prototype quartz movement from 1975. It runs a 4.19 MHz oscillator and was given the designation of cal. 1522 (though, again, the particularly attentive Omega WIS will know that that calibre number was later reused for another movement after this extraordinary attempt at the ultimate high accuracy watch failed to make it into regular production).

In the end, only two of these prototypes were made. That's just about as rare as anything I have ever owned.
