What Are You Waiting For?

I've got a couple of watches in the mail right now. A SteelDive 1970 ordered on the 11.11 sale (bracelet and black rubber ordered) and a Deep Blue Daynight Patriot in Ice Blue (Ordered on black rubber with the accessory bracelet). As you can see my obsession with affordable tool watches continues. I'm particularly excited about the tritium tubes on the Deep Blue.

What's on it's way to you right now?

I know of nothing on it's way to me right now, because...

  • I'm fairly content with what I have at the moment. Do I want other watches? Yes. But I don't feel compelled to buy right now. 
  • It's the holidays. Don't want to buy something I might get as a gift. 
  • Saving up for a big trip in May.

I like the question - where does your obsession with affordable tool watches come from?

As I will be travelling to the US end of week and spending a month in the Miami area, I have ordered a few watches that are waiting for me there. So there are not technicaly on the way, I will go to them😀

That's it for now - non withstanding the Cartier Tank that should follow soon//Help me choose my Cartier Tank | WatchCrunch. I also debatting adding that John Mayer G-Shock 6900 to the mix, will find well in my Miami collection 😀

Parts, I'm waiting for parts. I realized that I didn't like an existing case because of a cyclops, and after switching the crystal it is perfectly acceptable.

Therefore I'm waiting for a dial, a set of hands, a movement and silicone straps. Not sure if I keep the existing bracelet or not.

I'm in a phase of double-checking my existing mods as to whether they can be improved upon.

Good question about my obsession. I guess I enjoy their versatility, a lot of the watches in my collection represent different takes on the GADA watch concept. Maybe I'll find the mythical "One Tool Watch to Rule Them All" at some point but until then I'm going to enjoy trying out as many as I can find!

Parts for my "trying destro" project.

So cool! I'm so unsure of what to look for when it comes to vintage watches that I really haven't considered any for myself yet. 

·

I’m waiting for a watch to come back from the Omega watch doctor in Switzerland. And I wait for a bracelet from JLC ordered in September but it will probably not arrive until next year. 

·

Parts as well here. Building a milsub/vintage-sub with fauxtina sterile dial and modding my Seiko 5KX into a pepsi dual-time with dome saphire. If I'm really lucky the wife got me something for Christmas too!

·

I got on a waitlist for a Tudor Ranger a couple weeks ago and the next day my Longines Conquest Classic had to get shipped out for service so I’ll Be waiting for these for the next few weeks or so.

Funny you should ask. I ordered a steeldive date just homage. I insist on 39 mm for a Rolex and they are discontinued. Until Rolex makes more, I'll be content to wear a homage.

Very nice, I hope the quality is as good as I've heard!

I ordered a Studio Underd0g at Windup I am waiting for, but luckily that is it.
