Show off your latest purchase

Whether you bought it today or years ago, let's show off our new or favourite toys to each other since, let's face it, no one in our 'real lives' cares as much as we do! (I'm jealous of folks who have watch-bros to talk to irl 馃様)

The grail for me is a Grand Seiko White Birch at some point. But being realistic, as an average Joe Blogs, I'm never going to be able to justify that kind of money while I have a mortgage to pay and kids at home. So since I don't have anything akin to a dress watch yet I've gone for this beauty which I snagged as a very lightly used second hand piece for 60% off the RRP. Would have been rude not to!

Seiko Presage Sharp Edge SARX075

Anyone want to share the current love in their life?

Got this last week. It cost me $80, and it has the most comfortable strap out of any watch I own.聽

Great looking piece with a wonderfully dial design. Also very nice pairing on the complimentary nato. 馃

That鈥檚 a nice strap you have on it. is it a perlon strap?

The top is a rare 1970's Record by longines diver given to me by my dad years ago, its one of 500 to be made, but ive never seen another one online or in real life, its still my favourite watch. The next is my latest purchase a casio w800h, I wasnt happy with the f91w's size, so I bought this and I wear it most days, im surprised I enjoy it as much as I do. The Seiko 7002 modified is my daily, I bought it as a 28th Birthday present to myself, these three are probably my favourite watches in my collection at the moment. That's a nice watch by the way, it suits you.

(Funnily enough I do have a friend I talk to about watches, we meet up all the time)

A scuba dude is definitely on my list 馃憤 There's a video on youtube of someone depth testing it, and it does really well! Amazing value for money.

The guy threw in the NATO for free when I bought it. It's so comfortable I've not bothered with the bracelet.

FedEx just showed up at my doorstep an hour and a half ago with this beautiful 聽Santos De Cartier.

It's just nylon but they must do something magical to it because it's so soft and comfortable and looks great 馃憣

My first boutique purchase.聽

Nice white Presage.

My latest is a somewhat similar Seiko, the SARX055.

Wow that longines is something special. I've never seen one either.

I enjoy my Casio A100 immensely too. It just shows that the enjoyment you can get out of a watch isn't really related to the price tag.

I generally don't like the date at 6, but that watch pulls it off beautifully 馃憣

Thanks it was made for the divers on oil rigs, I can only think most got destroyed on the job.

As for Casio I think there's something special in getting a great watch for low money, Casio just excel in providing high quality watches like that.
