Chronostop Driver. You wore it on the inside of your wrist so it looked right when driving, bit of a short lived gimmick really. Rather more rare than the normal orientation one I have. You wouldn't know it to look at the small 34mm case but the movement used in those is basically a slightly simplified version of that in the Speedmaster Pro.

Nice selection there.

Padders is exactly right...not surprising that my father liked this as he was an advance police driving instructor for his profession, not that he had this when he was instructing but a great watch for him to have had.

Thanks for the lovely comments.

But your arm Roger has not got the aged beauty the timber post has. :partytime:

If you count the rings, it evens out. :laugh:

I bloody love these two...

Still got the Mark V, I believe it is 1983 and is so lovely with the cushion shape, really makes a statement on the wrist. 

The 1940 manual was sold via auction, as were the Megaquartz, both Dynamics and the drivers watch. They just about paid for my Gibson 335 guitar so I was very pleased (as was my wife!), especially as I still have the Mark V, Moonwatch, Multi-function Quartz, Cosmic and Constellation. Hard choices but we can't have everything I suppose!

Well here is the new arrival which caused me to part with 5 watches !

To me it was well worth it!    Big thanks to Padders for letting it go.

Quartz version 41mm.

Believe me the pics just don't do this watch justice.

Get that pic enlarged pronto! I am glad to see that one in safe hands. I suppose at some point I had better post a pic of my revised slimmed down SMP collection!

Here is my early 60s 18k gold Seamaster. An inherited piece, but however belatedly, has really got me interested in watches:

I've put the speedmaster on a leather strap and I think it looks much better. 086910a0ce2da6d75912245d4ed6c4a5.jpgbcce80059d66e55d5aaeb382379c6d1b.jpg013d1bf7c55076e22fb0c55ed1cace23.jpg

They put that in as part of the deal. Otherwise it would have been £340!!!!

I’m a new member of the Omega owners club! This is my wife’s late father’s Omega Constellation. Cal. 561 and serial number starting 2442... which I think dates it to 1966?!

I should have mentioned ... the watch has just been polished and serviced - and obviously a new strap fitted! Running very well indeed and love how understated it is
