Hello fellow WUS
I finally got the opportunity to take some photos of my whole collection last night. It's been a while since they've all been together. I became interested in watches a little over a year and a half ago but didn't really get into collecting till I joined the forum. Feedback on my collection is welcome and appreciated
The whole lot
First watch is my Ball Railroad Standard. I just had this serviced and the 21 jewel handwinding movement is running excellent. I was actually thinking about replating the case. It's a 10kt gold filled case so I don't know if replating is a viable option. It's one watch I don't ever wanna sell so it made sense to get it replated. Any suggestions or info on whether to replate would be extremely helpful.
Next is my crown jewel it's a 1940s Nastrix chronograph. 17 Jewel handwound it doesn't get any better than that. I would like to reblue and repaint the hands anyone know of someone to do this? I also plan to to re-plate this case as well. The dial I will do nothing to I love it and it's the main reason I bought it.
PAM homage I bought off a fellow member. Really love this I wasn't always a fan of Panerai but once I put this on it was love. I love this dial and the case back both just gorgeous.
Next two are Kirovskies . These are some of the first pieces I ever bought. One day I hope to have several crab case models each with a different dial. These are just getting hard to find in good condition at a good price.
Next a Bulova Accutron. Automatic 26 jewel Sellita movement. Love thus just not a big fan of the strap looking to upgrade it when. I find something I like.
Bedford Time co. Chronograph powered by a Valjoux 7750. Very solid and dependable. Sapphire crystal front and back. Great watch but I originally planned to sell it once I got a speedy pro but I don't think I will anymore.
The newest addition to my collection S. Coifman Limited edition. This is my first all gold watch didn't really know how I'd feel about it till it came. I had the stainless steel version and loved it and the gold version is even better
Invicta Sub. Say what you will about the brand but this one with the Seiko movement works great. Bought this used off another member and the best thing about it is that it made me realize I need a Rolex Sea Dweller.
Swatch Sistem 51 and yes this one runs great. Alot of people have been complaining but this hasn't had any trouble
Invicta 6411 I wanted a beater chronograph so this is what I got
And finally the G-Shocks
That's my collection. I think im doing alright for a 25 year old college student. My next purchases are gonna be some Seiko divers. Had a few sold them and now I miss them. Also on my want list is a Speedmaster, Sea Dweller, two tone Rolex Sub, and a day/date but they won't be for a while yet.
