Post Covid New Purchase

Once this lockdown ends and we can hopefully all go back to some degree of normality what is the next purchase everyone is lining up? Personally it's the Explorer 1 for me but I've also been looking into the Meistersinger brand recently too for something totally different.

I had been thinking along the same lines. Until I spoke to nearly every UK AD who mentioned that this model is in demand and unlikely to be available until the end of the year. Great choice though, I’m hoping that one might come up sooner.

One of these two.

I prefer the blue but dont like leather straps and on a bracelet it would just look like a couple of my other watches, so maybe white ???

The wearing down process on my missus will have to start soon:laugh:

I have my eye on a new Hydroconquest, in grey, on the grey strap - it just looks Sooooo nice

Got one, and they’re fantastic. The rubber strap makes the watch too. So much lighter on the wrist than the bracelet, 65 hour power reserve so can leave it for days without it stopping

Seiko are every where,but that bike looks stunning.

There's been far too many low mileage ones for sale as well, but 600 miles + round journey is out of the question at the moment. :bash:

(as well as being stupid and unnecessary)

Stupid and unnecessary purchases seem to be a common thread in my life :rolleyes:

I am still waiting for my Vostok Amphibian to turn up.Not much chance now i think so i will try for another.The Seiko Prospex Save The Ocean Great White is a watch that has captured my imagination.

Never looked at those before but a quick google search and I like them. Nice little watch

I really didn’t like those when they came out...grown on me though. Sales are a wonderful thing though.....and I expect there to be lots once this mess is sorted out 

I have never looked at this brand before either, I had for some reason written them off. The movement is a little disappointing for the price even though the rotor is interesting, the case and bracelet are top notch, the finishing is exceptional....but £3900, it's a big ask for such an 'average' movement.

It's a Porsche with Vauxhall engine, there is a compromise here if I purchase this watch. At this money I could get a load of other watches with more pedigree.

Maybe a sale would swing it like you say.

Same goes for IWC. They have some stunning watches with amazing build quality and finishing, but always for a grand too much.

I think I will hunt down a nice Aqua Terra 38mm white dial when all the dust settles ...

I’m sad to say that there isn’t a purchase on the way and probably for some time unless I decide to part with the Longines which I can’t see happening for a while or maybe ever.

There are however, three watches that I could easily be tempted by...

Longines Legend Diver 

Smiths Everest

Oris Aquis 

I would absolutely love any or all in my collection should the stars ever align.
