    Friends;

    By reading threads in this forum I have seen many beautiful timepieces, some of them are expensive and others are not, and all of this has prompted me to read from different sources, learn more and have fun with it, but unfortunately I'm yielding to the temptation of acquiring a few more watches ... Há!

    Let's share pics and comment about those timepieces we still don't get but want eventually to have. The rest of us could share positive comments or provide useful advice regarding that watch... Sounds good?

    Let me start:
    Casio EF 527D - 7AD.

    [​IMG]

    I like it because with its functions (which I like to find in a watch), and good looking design (IMHO) it's cheaper than others.

    Edit: grammar.

    Nice watch!

    I have had my sights on a Glycine Airman Purist 24H. It's one of the cleanest looking *true* 24-hour watches, it's relatively low-profile, well-built, and has 22mm lugs (I'm a strap maker!). I just can't afford one right now.

    Good thread!

    It looks really nice. I haven't seen that brand nor a 24 hours watch at the places where I move around.

    Nixie tube watch from Cathode Corner.
    I love the aesthetics of Nixie tubes.
    I have a clock made from Nixie tubes that is awesome, and a wrist watch made of these things is nothing short of absolutely astounding.

    I'd like to have a eone Bradley Classic with titanium body and SS mesh band. The Bradley is a very minimalistic watch that can be read by looking at or by feeling the magnetically moving balls.

    Different to every other thing I've ever seen. Your post moved me to read from the website. Really interesting.
    Thanks for sharing it. I learn something new.

    It would keep my seamaster company. I'll buy one eventually; just have to be able to justify the expense.

    Unicorn watch: original red letter submariner. I don't have a reason. I just like them.

    You mean this one right? That's innovation, definitely.

    Anyone seen the Inox, by Victorinox? It's a beaut! I guess a 67 ton tank can roll over it, and it'll still work. I want one.

    After reading your post I did search info about it. Beautiful watch. Just wonder about its weight and I didn't find that specific characteristic.

    Nice watches.
    All three of them, and I might be wrong in this, seem to be kind of a same style and have similar functions. I always thought on having different kinds of watches or different watches styles to be used in different occasions.
    Very nice watches. Thanks!

    Yes, they are pretty similar, but I still think they are great. Right now, I'm rocking an Orient Deep, which looks almost the same, too, but this is the extreme low-end budget wise. The Seiko clocks in second place, the Longines third and the Omega is at the top of the list… So there might be a gradual evolution...

    Seiko 6105-8000 early 1970s model.
    I used to have one but somehow misplaced it.
    Its a classic Seiko diver and this particular model has a beautiful case.
