    Mechanicals Entering (Or Already In) The Fall Rotation?

    As I've noted on this forum before, I tend to mix in more mechanicals and more watches on leather straps in the Fall and Winter. Some forum members keep them in rotation all year round.

    So here are a few that will be getting a bit more wrist time -- not necessarily the fanciest or all time favorites -- just a few that are calling out to me at the moment. (I don't have all the model names at hand, forgive me for not being more specific in some of my identifications):

    d freemont ancyent mariner:



    Hamilton:







    This Vollmer has a luminous dial -- which is very cool:



    IWC Mark XV:



    Omega Speedmaster Professional:



    (I also have an Omega Dynamic that I love -- but I don't have a decent shot of it.)

    Dad's Longines from the 1940's (needs a new crystal or some buffing):

    kronos, i really like some of those. the bird and initials on the first watch are really... endearing is the best word i can come up with at the moment. the lugs on that longines are a complete time warp.

    i am planning on doing a little thread here about my two automatics once some new straps show up. maybe we should have a photo thread of mechanical and g-shocks... day / night... favorite of each... hmmm, not sure how to frame it.

    thanks for sharing.

    Nice Mk XV, always loved the looks of that one.

    Pity they discontinued this one and went on to
    create the bastard-son called Mk XVI.

    What a great collection, the vintage Longines especially. I also have a Speedmaster Pro - classic choice

    Thanks. I forgot to mention the Precista which is going to get some quality time as well.



    I want to shoot it on its leather strap.

    Indeed. German flieger hands on an RAF watch...

    My Orange Monster will probably spend more time in the box. G's still own the weekend and occasional work days when the timer comes in handy.

    These will get more air time... Not all mechanical...

    I'm still on a contact-high for these great lumps of plastic and titanium horology. My mechanicals are in the safe!
