Post your watches

I think someone in the interesting watch thread was talking about Zodiacs. Here's one of mine. The Astrographic was their standout design, noted for it's 'floating' hands and red second dot. I love Astrographics, and this one's a limited 125th anniversay edition from 2005. Only 500 of this type made, although Astrographics in have been made since the 70's.

Anyway, if you have an interesting watch or just one with an interesting story, let's see it!

Have a Seiko Kinetic.

Was sick of replacing watch batteries, and once done the watch was never the same.

Bought 2006 in Macy's NYC with my "Casino Fund" having learned that gambling in the state of New York is illegal and the nearest place was Salt Lake City. :-/

So spent it on the watch, 5 years use, zero batteries. :eek:)

Well here's my Traser she's looking a bit battered and bruised now but still going strong.
H3 are top quality Swiss watches, extremely robust and reliable. Chosen by the world's elite military units, including the SAS, SBS, US Navy Seal Teams and French Foreign Legion, H3 watches have proven themselves in active duty throughout the world.

The original military watch, the H3 range utilises Gaseous Tritium Light Sources (GTLS) to make them the easiest watches in the world to see in low-light or zero-light conditions. No need to press any buttons or hold them up to the light, the H3 dial illuminates up to 100 times brighter than any other watch dial, so you can easily identify the time at a second's glance.

These tritium light sources (which for many years were classified top secret technology and only available to active military personal) are tiny airtight vials, sealed under high pressure, and are resistant to water, oil and corrosive materials. A minute quantity of tritium lights up the dye. These properties make H3 watches an absolute must in emergency, safety and protection sectors as well as in the armed forces - and they are also idea for fans of adventure and sport.

Pity it wasn't a vintage Mickey Mouse watch, would be looking at £1000 for a 1933 in good condition.

Snap!

I have a Seiko Kinetic as well and this is the one I have



I once left it in a drawer for a year and when I picked it up it awoke from its slumber and the hands whizzed around to the correct time and it started ticking again!

I don't do batteries either, they do have a habit of dying at the wrong time.
