Doxa

So , my Doxa came with a Lanyard which I would never ever use and after some thought it's become decoration.

No , I got that from an antique emporium near me , I've been specifically looking for old boats and got 2 for 拢10 then set them in resin . I was given the Santa Maria in the picture to do up , it was in a bad way ....once complete they said I could keep it ....result.聽

I drive my family mad but it's my way of relaxing. I love watches but am more into the art that can be achieved with them.聽

Wow! That Santa Maria is beautiful! I love how you've done the sails. You must have been well chuffed when you got to keep it. 馃憦

Re cute antique boats - My Grandfathers toy sailboat he played with ~ 100 years ago, sits on my mantle. 聽 I made a little wooden 鈥榬eef鈥 for it to sit on and made some new sails for it. 聽 No aesthetic way to add a watch here - but his watch is on a stand on my desk 10 feet away 馃檪
