just pre-ordered my Lüm-Tec 300M-2 this morning. Had a very nice chat with Bes and will be getting a nice, low number in the series.

Should be shipping out at the end of the month

I just saw this thread. I collect wrist watches and ships clocks. I love a hand wound clock. I prefer functuion over form when it comes to wrist watches. Anyway what I've got in rotation right now.

IWC 3777



Sinn U2



Fortis Spacematic



Bell & Ross Space 2



Ulysse Nardin Maxi Marine Diver. Ulysse Nardin is also the brand I most prefer in collecting ships clocks.

My bad I'm at the office trying to post pictures. That indeed is my Sinn U2. Doxa 1200t pictured below.



Whener I have to wear a suit to a wedding or such I wear my IWC Portuguese




I have al sorts of older watches, clocks and watch and clock movements. I wish I could make a living messing around with time keepers or riding motorcycles. Haven't found a way yet.

Here's my Tissot SeaStar my wife got me last year for my birthday. I could have a serious watch habit if I made more money

Agreed. The James Bond nonsense is one of the things that cheapens the brand, IMO. Buy a vintage Speedmaster Professional and get a piece of history, not a piece of marketing merchandise. The real James Bond wore a Submariner anyway.

I like Omega in general, but their penchant for "Limited Editions" devalues every watch they make.

I mean, really, does James Bond play James Bond?
