Which are the ones you let get away...or just missed...or maybe haven't had the courage or insanity to purchase?

I have a "wall" of watches that I'm either keeping my eye out for...or to remind me that I was an idiot and let them get away from me...and there are...

Thanks!

The brown dial with rose gold case is sublime…one of my friends has that one which is what turned me on to the FiftySix.

Attractive watch but avoid paying full price.

These will be selling for 30-35% discount soon enough.

Lots of great information…but I still don’t see myself buying any Sea-Gull watches. Great that you posted this for those that will 🤙

Numerous stacked dates starting in the 1960s. Both Seiko and Citizen used the stacked day/date frequently in the early 1970s.

My guess is Marc is drawing from the Seiko catalogue on this one.

Some classic bullhead chronographs with stacked day/date…

Here is one from Citizen from the 1970s…

Here is a 1970s Seiko Bullhead…apologies for the time blocking the day but you can see it underneath…

So definitely nothing new…but cool that Marc is producing some

Mine is “Time” by Alan Parsons Project

https://youtu.be/zhRzORqNa0E?si=_Ab6uYyK9D6oc-sO

Time, flowing like a river

Time, beckoning me

Who knows when

We shall meet again, if ever

But time keeps flowing

Like a river to the sea

Goodbye my love

Maybe for forever

Goodbye my love

The tide waits for me

Who knows when

We shall meet again, if ever

But time keeps flowing

Like a river (on and on)

To the sea, to the sea

'Til it's gone forever

Gone forever

Gone forevermore

Goodbye my friend

(Goodbye my love)

Maybe for forever

Goodbye my friend

(Who knows when

We shall meet again)

The stars wait for me

Who knows where

We shall meet again, if ever

But time keeps flowing

Like a river (on and on)

To the sea, to the sea

'Til it's gone forever

Gone forever

Gone forever

Gone forever now

Forevermore, forevermore

commented on I just like them. ·

One of my colleagues has a couple of Sarparnevas and they are very cool watches in the metal. Not my style and for the money I’d be buying something else. But really high quality watches that look awesome.
