Me [info about]

about me

Born in a beautiful, history-rich and rough mountain region right at the heart of the old continent, I am middle age admirer of watches, fine engineering and ingenious inventions of which watch movements are a prime example. This page is highly personal and at the beginning of it was a simple attempt to keep record of watches I owned... lest I forget.


PHOTOS AND DETAILS OF MY WATCHES

The list of watches are models I owned or own. Click on the TITLE / WATCH NAME to open the page with more details, photos and specs - where available. Most photos are my own or from the seller I bought it from. Few stock photos used where I do not have own photos.

Now a classic chronograph, this iconic chronograph is a workhorse that has been running strong since 70's. Simply marvellous.

Probably the best value-for-money watch on the market. Highly versatile, universal watch. Designed for dressier ocassions but handles any casual wear superbly.

Great wearer. ISO-certified diver with curved case so it sits on hand nice and tight. Magic blue, ranging from sky blue to almost a black shade, depending on the light.

I always thought this is so unbelievably ugly that it is actually pretty. You probably can't say you are a Seiko fan if you never had one.

Seiko SNZH55

Rightly or wrongly, this model has always been seen as poor man's Fifty Fathoms. Seiko 5 with great capacity for modifications. Or, wear it as is.
