    I'm technically not "wearing" one today, but I am carrying one. I have my Waltham model 1908 pocket watch today. Something about those big, elaborately finished American movements from the early 1900s...[​IMG][​IMG]

    With the luck I’m having at finding these discontinued pieces at a great price....I’m thinking I need to pick up a lottery ticket.

    What a coincidence! I was just watching the movie 'Bangkok Dangerous' on Showtime the other night; and when I did a Google search on this watch a citation came up describing how a version of the Ventura Sigma was designed for Nicolas Cage to wear for the movie...

    ^^^Is it possible to give us a pic of your watch glowing in the dark? I'd like to see what the tritium looks like, if it's not too much trouble. Thank you. (I was looking at these myself.)

    It isn't super bright. But in the middle of the night it's pretty easy to read.
    Best I could for a pic.[​IMG]

    Yes, that watch appeared in the movie Bangkok Dangerous.

    But the watch itself predate the movie by 2 years. So I would imagine the movie picked the watch, not the watch was designed for the movie.

    I don't know if there are "special" version other than the one I have. The photo featured in the unique watch page was a concept photo, I don't believe they actually made one that looks like exactly that. At least all I have seen was press photo, never seen any real life photo of that exact watch.

    Ventura later on did release a version of Sigma with auto / rotor generating power called Sigma MGS, but the display looks different with the time numerals being much bigger, which to me is a step backward on design because it ruined the symmetry of the numerals.

    http://www.ventura.ch/index.php/uhren/sparc-sigma-mgs.html

    And for the price. Even the current price on the Ventura web site is much higher than the one quoted on unique watch. And I paid much much higher than the current price for being an early (/earlier) adopter because I just fell in love with the design when I first saw it.

    Anyway, its a great watch, very unique, lovely design, and next time, please skip unique watch web site cause they don't know what they are talking about it. :)

    I have way too much to think about to worry about what watch I'm wearing.
    But it's this one again anyhow. [​IMG]

    Model SNZG09K1, Seiko movement 7S36C. Picture via Amazon. I've changed out the strap for a black leather strap with white stitching. Very dependable watch; seems to have great power reserve!

    L'chaim!
