Current S.O.T.C. (State of the Collection)
avatar April 15, 2018 05:52PM
Am in the process of moving my computer and desk at from a shared space to my new (small) study. First things that I've set up beside my writing desk is my watch collection. Seemed like a good opportunity to share what the current state of the collection is. Oldest wristwatch is still the Hamilton Illinois that my father was given when he graduated High School (first in his family). Newest is the Ventus Mori.



The display is a custom piece made for me by a guy named Peter Turner way back when we were still blowing glass (20 years?). We bartered some of our glass for it. It doubles as a standing writing desk (there is a piece that fits over the glass in the lid that serves as a writing surface).

I know the collection is smaller than some, but I have really stopped buying watches for now. There are a few "grails" out there I wouldn't mind owning (and I still am soft hearted when it comes to funky '70s diving watches), but I have really gotten the itch for another vintage Power Wagon and am putting money aside for that purpose.

I already have a work truck, the vintage Power Wagon would be a "fun" truck Jpeg Attachments BobbyMikeRedux 164 April 15, 2018 08:05PM
I like it, but money for cars, gas, tax, insurance and most of all the space is not in ample amount here... Crying James T. Kirk© 123 April 18, 2018 07:32AM
On the bright side, you have awesome bicycle infrastructure! (n/t) Smaug 144 April 19, 2018 05:46AM
Yes, that's so correct, Jeremy! James T. Kirk© 124 April 19, 2018 07:17AM

Yup! It's not good for a person to get all his wishes, I think... Smile (n/t) James T. Kirk© 136 April 19, 2018 04:26AM

Thumbs Up It's a great collection. Quantity doesn't mean much. I have way too many Zeb 157 April 15, 2018 06:35PM
I've started the process of paring on my collection. marsss25 143 April 16, 2018 08:27AM
