Alrighty then. I can see that my previous offerings did not resonate with the membership so I will try one more time.

This is my Zodiac Speed Dragon. The only problem with this watch is that recently the date wheel stopped advancing. To compound the problem,my esteemed watchmaker, also recently, went on to that giant Watch Shop in the sky.

I don't think it's a big deal to fix, as everything else, works perfectly. I bought this watch from Foghorn a couple of years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed it...............Here tis

Cool looking watch but at 45mm it would just sit in my box. I hate my little wrists.

OK the Caravelle came in, no pics of yet. Up for consideration is my Tommy Bahama Sterling silver case, taupe tapestry type dial, 40mm, including both straps, new battery. Great condition, scratch on the caseback from last battery change.:

Tommy Bahama, the ultimate chill watch, is on my wrist. A khaki cotton strap and a dark brown braided leather strap give it two completely different looks.


Up for grabs is a Seiko Automatic 7002-7000 "scuba diver's" (i wouldn't dive in it) 150m watch. The bidirectional bezel is a little loose but it stays in place if you pull up slightly on the part of the bezel with the lume pip (it will click into place).
• 42.3mm w/o crown
• 43.5mm w/crown
• 45mm lug-lug
• 13mm thick
• 22mm lug width
• 7002 Caliber Seiko automatic
• Nov. 1994 production
• Seiko Wave strap worn once
• No box/papers

The seiko strap this comes on, if you've never worn one, sucks ass in the comfort area. I recommend a 22mm nato (i'd throw one on it, but i don't have any 22mm at the moment.)

Does it have a fogged crystal? The one I had like that had the specially fogged "Eyal's Breath" crystal. It was unspeakably fucking cool, man.

I just got the Invicta, and a nice watch it is! I'll take some shots of it pretty soon, but for now I wanted to post my contribution to the thread.

Behold! A very fine and rare Poljot 24-hour watch!:













It's a watch I got from a fine fellow as a karma back at BDWF, and it's a very fine and rare example of the Poljot export line. It's a 24 hour watch, meaning the hour hand goes around once in a day as opposed to twice; these are said to be popular among the military and people in Europe, who have issues with dealing with the concept of AM and PM. It's a handcranked movement:



And, unusual for Russian watches, isn't burdened with the horrible non-quickset date. I've worn it a few times, but as I'm not the brightest bulb in the box, I always had issues telling the exact time because of the math thing of adding or subtracting 12 from the PM side of things.

The TV-style case--which is incredibly fine and very rare in Russian watches (the last man to wear one was Krushchev, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when he wasn't pissed-drunk) measures just shy of 40mm including the crown, 36mm north to south, 44mm corner to corner, and an incredible and very rare and fine 9.35mm in thickness, which is almost unknown among watches made, for instance, by Invicta. The lugs appear to be about 20mm, measured by my incredibly fine and very rare calipers, purchased for $10 from Lowes.

Here's a shot of it next to my extremely fine and exceedingly rare OS300:



The strap is rather short, and probably not very rare or fine enough for guys with wrists above 7.5 inches. It comes with a very rare and super-fine wooden Poljot box and papers too, for those who can't figure out how to set a 24 hour watch and wind it about 40 times.

Most importantly, it's O'Brian approved!:





Anyone interested, reply to this post, goddamn it! This very fine and pretty rare Russki won't last long.
