I picked up my Tudor BB GMT in February as a belated 35th birthday gift to myself following my 35th birthday last July.

·

I am very intrigued by Ceratanium. Would love to get one of those. 
 

Unfortunately, no new watches yet for me this year. Hoping to buy one near Christmas. Eyeing the new Tudor Ranger as of right now. 
 

I did, however, order some chevron straps from Crown and Buckle to try out and make one of my older watches look new while I save up for my next purchase. 

·

This happens if you are impatient, broke and not thinking long term. Love every single one of them but I have to keep an eye on not getting to many. next moves will be upmarket

K2022 has been pretty tame for me so far as I've only managed to snag 3 compared to the 7 watches I got in 2021. The year's not over yet, however! 😄 In no particular order:

  1. Dan Henry 1964 bicompax
  2. Seiko SNA413
  3. Bedat & Co. #7

Only one watch so far. And a completely spontaneous purchase at that.

Re-discovered old Fossil of my son’s with one-way rotating bezel and hand-painted hour and minute hands and new band.

I’ve added a 1908 Waltham pocket watch. A non-running Oris TT3, not really my style but it’ll be a good project to repair. The next watch I have my eye on is a Vario 1918, white dial and lume, 37mm.

My plan was to buy one new watch this year. I also stated that in a comment about my plans early this year. That watch would be the Submariner I was waitlisted for. In the same comment I said that you never now about vintage. They just pop up before your eyes and you have to grab them when they do.

So how did it go? Well, not according to plan. 7 month in 2022 I bought

And finally my original planned watch

Image

Added 2 vintage watches on top of that

I have a weak character.

How thick is the IWC? I don't mean the "thickness" on paper but the wrist(feel)?
