SOTC August 23, 2022 (Box 2)

In this video I discuss the last twelve of the twenty four vintage watches that I own. In the next few weeks I plan to start doing in depth videos about each of them. These watches are my "anything goes" collection - watches that I liked for one reason or another, because they were good tool watches or just fun or interesting. 

  1. Davis LED 
  2. Storm Faze 
  3. Junghans Mega1000 
  4. Apple iPod Nano 6th / 7th Generation (plus Chinese watch conversion kit) 
  5. Texas Instruments MCU RF Watch Dev Kit 
  6. Pine64 PineTime Open Source Smart Watch 
  7. Tissot T-Touch II 
  8. Seiko World Time 
  9. Christopher Ward World Glow GMT World Time 
  10. Panerai Luminor Base Series A PAM010 
  11. Catorex ETA 2783 
  12. Bermi Transparent (EB 1333 movement)

Great variation in that box. Digital watches is not top of my list but you hade some very unusual, at least to me, samples there. I wonder if they been on @Candide3693 ’s radar?

Thanks! 

These all interested me relatively recently as design studies more so than collectibles. If I was a collector I would want Accutrons (Spaceview old and new), HP1 and other electronic and digital classics. If I had kept every digital watch I've ever owned I'd have a few more boxes, but they all die, which is why in the end if you're going to buy watch boxes it makes more sense to fill them with mechanical watches 😀

Thanks! That Catorex was in a box of spare parts I bought. It's been fun working on it. https://youtu.be/ANlKeCbhpD8?t=2014 (Catorex at 33:34)

Two of them are, the Tissot and the Junghans. I plan to add a T-Touch at some point, and a Mega1000 is a grail. I did just add an analog/digital watch that is a serious step up for me, a Hamilton.

Just got it this afternoon. Pretty excited about this one.
