Which Watch Would You Never Flip!

Recommended Posts

My first ever watch (1968) Seiko given to me as a christmas present . Simple elegant design and to be "handed down"

None of my watches have got any sentimental value, but if I had to pick just one as a definite keeper above all the rest it would have to be this Seiko:

I haven't even worn it very often, but it's a real beast of a watch and just feels very special on the wrist :thumbsup:

Apart from my late father's pocketwatch for the obvious reasons I don't think I could ever part with my Seiko Alpinist 8F56 ... a fantastic watch and very robust with it's titanium case and sapphire glass, also very accurate if worn daily, mine sits at about +1 per month ... it's my work watch or 'beater' if you prefer!

Sorry about the bad picture, just took it now with a flash on, bad reflections from the unmarked sapphire crystal.

there are a few i would never get rid of

this was a gift from my wife and i love to wear it, im not sure what people think of the way it looks but i love it, the pushers make it just about the right width and it is nice and thick. I actually hardly ever wear it as id hate for it to get damaged in anyway but on those secial occasions when i do, i love it.

this one is a watch i have lusted after for years and i always thought it would be too expensive to ever own. I was in the process of saving the money up for it when i went in to a goldsmiths discount store. this was in a cabinet priced at 60% off!! i couldnt believe it, less than half price because there were a few scratches on the back of it from a hamfisted attempt at doing gawd knows what!!

this one is a fairly cheap and non descript number which i would never flip as i bought it a day before departing to the island where me and the wife got hitched. as it happens, i think it looks ace but the main reason it has a permanent status in my collection is for nostalgia.

this is one i will always own because i think it looks brilliant and every time i look at another dive watch and think "ooh, that looks like a nice industrial work-horse kind of dive watch" i realise i already have a watch that does that job perfectly!
