It would appear that I have returned to the hobby with a vengeance!
December 31, 2018 06:49PM
After several years tending to other things besides watches, I started having those "urges" again. Here are the watches I acquired since August and it looks like I better reign it in a bit! Haven't sold any.............yet. I shudder to think what 2019 will look like.

Weiss 38m Standard Issue Field Watch


Gerlach P50 Hawk


Orient Defender


Seiko SRP773


Seiko SRPC41


And finally, the Orient Bambino

What have we bought this year? What did we sell? Jpeg Attachments James T. Kirk© 336 December 31, 2018 02:45PM
Oh, Geez. I didn't sell any, but went a little crazy on buying I think. Jpeg Attachments jhargrave 187 January 02, 2019 04:10PM
I see! Rolling on the floor (n/t) Jpeg Attachments James T. Kirk© 174 January 03, 2019 04:01AM
I tried it. I don't think it worked. Sad (n/t) jhargrave 171 January 04, 2019 03:05AM
Two every day, not one! Rolling on the floor (n/t) James T. Kirk© 166 January 04, 2019 03:09AM
I'm with ya - nice haul. That Invicta looks like a vintage Zodiac red dot dive chrono - very cool. Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 136 January 02, 2019 09:09PM
I really looked for that one. I had one like it back during my PMWF days, and sold it. jhargrave 118 January 04, 2019 03:06AM
I once had a Invicta, that was a clone of another not so expensive watch, sometimes you think, what?? James T. Kirk© 183 January 03, 2019 04:06AM
I agree - many watch brands borrow elements from other brands, of course. I think your bronze one... Mike D 132 January 03, 2019 09:01AM
And I even hear/read that Rolex copied from Jeager Lecoultre or another brand? (n/t) James T. Kirk© 115 January 03, 2019 01:52PM
My addiction Laughing flared up late 2018. I gave away one as a gift, one is for sale & three new to the collection Jpeg Attachments Jeremyd676 188 January 02, 2019 01:46PM
Great additions - love that Shinola. Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 131 January 02, 2019 09:06PM
Cool, you're OK with that "Proudly hosted by Photobucket" cr*p? I'd change as fast as I can for something else... James T. Kirk© 168 January 02, 2019 02:33PM
All my 2018 changes have been in one family ... Jpeg Attachments Dre 219 January 02, 2019 10:31AM
Nice family, Dre! Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 180 January 02, 2019 09:03PM
Very nice quality items all and yes, keeping up Swiss movements 'cost a watch'. Smile (n/t) James T. Kirk© 118 January 02, 2019 02:30PM
You've been quite busy, but I have too. Laughing Here are mine. Jpeg Attachments Mike D 204 January 01, 2019 02:09PM
That was a large haul en I understand you giving that watch away! Laughing (n/t) James T. Kirk© 191 January 02, 2019 05:55AM
Thanks - yeah, I actually like the watch, but it was a novelty thing. Well made though - I believe it's made by Steinhart - just never wore it as you might imagine. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 142 January 02, 2019 08:52AM
Well, I couldn't believe it was a Steinhart product...Wink (n/t) James T. Kirk© 118 January 02, 2019 02:28PM
You're right - I did some checking and it was actually made by Debaufre - that makes more sense. Here's a link... URL Mike D 143 January 02, 2019 03:34PM
Well, the Swiss made were made by Debaufré, but Zane Lamprey had the quartz ones made in China, so not by Debaufré, am I right? James T. Kirk© 163 January 03, 2019 03:58AM
I think you're right - that's why it was only $149. Definitely not the Swiss Debaufre. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 181 January 03, 2019 08:42AM
You sure have been busy there Mike! You'll need a another watch box. (n/t) RussMurray 168 January 01, 2019 07:02PM
Yessir! Luckily, I have a big gun safe I keep them all in - plenty of extra room. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 179 January 01, 2019 08:40PM
One of the things I like in the USA (except cities) are roomy homes... (n/t) James T. Kirk© 170 January 02, 2019 05:58AM
You were more active than I was Johan. Smile Jpeg Attachments BF Hammer 193 January 01, 2019 01:30PM
Still you bought more then me! Wink (n/t) James T. Kirk© 173 January 02, 2019 05:49AM
You had a great year, Chris. Thumbs Up (n/t) Mike D 187 January 01, 2019 06:37PM
Nice haul Chris. I particularly like that Max Bill and of course the Bambino. (n/t) RussMurray 169 January 01, 2019 04:58PM
Looks like you had a great year Thumbs Up (n/t) MarkKershaw 176 January 01, 2019 04:45AM
I expected you to come with a list from here to eternity! Rolling on the floor (n/t) James T. Kirk© 177 January 01, 2019 05:03AM
Oh i have had loads Laughing Thumbs Up (n/t) MarkKershaw 172 January 01, 2019 01:32PM

You picked up some very nice timepieces Johan. That Sumo is terrific. (n/t) RussMurray 125 December 31, 2018 08:19PM
Thanks Russ, thanks to the German Uhrforum, I got a very reasonable deal and a good contact in the south of Germany! James T. Kirk© 176 January 01, 2019 02:28AM
Yes indeed! (n/t) RussMurray 166 January 01, 2019 09:22AM
You had a busy year. Smile Just two in and one out for me ..... Jpeg Attachments Robmks 172 December 31, 2018 06:56PM

Thanks Johan. I'm not sure whether congratulations or condolences are in order. Discipline should be the "watch" word for 2019 Wink (n/t) RussMurray 117 January 01, 2019 01:28PM
