Your photography has got better too! I really love the wooden watch the more I see it also, kind of looks good amongst all the others, a bit different.

Lol and I used to wear it in the summer on a yellow rubber divers strap shocking cool and brave


But know I am a bit more sensible and I have just bought a bright yellow claro beach star instead from the 1970,s Shocked very inconspicuous watch to wear lol

That's a lot of change in just two years John. Shocked

Beyond evolving your collection and your photography skills you've also taken the proverbial plunge with tinkering & modding which is great.

What would be interesting is where you see your collection being two years from now. Are many of your current collection "keepers" & have you any wish lists or grails which you are looking out for? Very Happy

I have been thinking recently about parting with a few but it is really difficult to decide which are to go and which to keep so for now all will remain as is . I do fancy a BFK kinetic but only because I havent had one before but part of me believes I would not bond with it so if I did buy one it would probably get sold after a while. As for a grail watch I only have the one and here is the surprise it is not Seiko Shocked
The grail for me is an older Omega speedy like this

If in any doubt about which watches to sell I think you are right not to part with any now. Possibly it would be easier to choose if something really special came up that you wanted.

That Omega is a stunner & definitely merits a grail status. Hopefully, one those days, you will have one John. Very Happy

big difference there John.
I too am biased to dive watches, especially Seiko.
the wood watch oozes coolness !

we share the same taste in grail watches too.
at present funds don't stretch to a Speedmaster, so I console myself with this German homage. . . . .
