So I'll start tonight's episode with an interesting case of mistaken identity because I'm fairly sure that Hewlett Packard don't know anything about this watch. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage

A Diesel that won't be easily read at a glance https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DEISEL-WATCH-DZ-1563-Rare-5BAR-Black-no-scratches-on-face-good-condition-/124707585764?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286

stop.. STOP.. STOP!

I am now being haunted in my dreams by that watch that looks like the bathroom scales..

It's talking to me.

Or trying to because it didn't have a voice..

The biggest question I have is.. 

Does it come in blue?

That's a bargain 

Hmm.. what it is.. is "available".

I wouldn't bother about a box myself. Sure they are nice to have and some are nice in their own right but all watches come out the box, go in the case and when they leave the case, its usually on someone else's wrist..

I use this.

It suits me.

Dekla make nice watches from what I've seen. Couple of owners over at TZ that seem happy and lots of options for customisation. Wonder what the reserve is now?!

That Filson watch will be a collaboration. Shinola are a Detroit based brand that do some stuff (or used to) in house. Filson are a clothes brand.

Having seen the auction go all the way through a couple of times, my guess is that the reserve is between £450 and £500, but that is just a hunch.

I quite like the Filson one, but there is something that makes me think of a cross between Timberland and Superdry (can't really put my finger on it).

Filson are definitely in a different price bracket to either of those but stylistically Timberland is pretty bang on!

I haven't priced one of these up but £450 wouldn't be too bad I don't think.

:thumbsup:

I think the "Superdry" feeling I was getting was more to do with the case back vs Superdry clothing more than a watch-to-watch comparison.

Superdry or Tokyo Laundry would love that caseback imo!

Some watch related junk. For a start, these cufflinks with the hour markers "1ish", "2ish" etc. Imagine the stress in some quarters if that was on an actual watch. :crazy5vh:

And for those of us who will never have a real working tourbillon, consolation cuff links.

Copies of the Horological Journal abound, for example from Feb 1954 with some much-loved names advertising on the cover.

I was going to buy a Runwell when the brand launched its first watch. Must have been 2013 or something. Love the wire lugs - it's what I keep coming back to on the Nomos Metro.

I was outbid on a gents Excalibur a couple of days ago - for not very much money - much less than Bricey's above.  I was interested in it specifically because it was the same case size and very similar shape to a very much more expensive vintage gents Omega I'm looking at - and I thought it would allow me to wear it for a while and see if the size was appropriate for me.  I'm after something special for sentimental reasons and am getting twitchy about the potential cost.
