    A Week of Extremes

    Made two additions to the collection this week, and I think they may be the two most opposite watches I've ever purchased.

    First off was a Seiko "Landshark" from a WUS member on the sales forum. Arrived on Tuesday, and is, in a word, absurd :)



    42mm, incredible wrist presence, a mechanical compass (I can't think of a more useless watch complication), and polished everywhere.



    Every surface you touch has a heavy knurl to it - both crowns and the rotating bezel alike. And let's not forget that overdone Seiko lume:



    This is my fourth Seiko and I've yet to be disappointed. Fantastic casual watches.

    On Wednesday I took shipment of one of my grails...the JLC Ultra Thin Moon 39 :)



    Maybe the most beautiful watch now in my collection. Love the face, the blue central seconds is divine, and the contrast of the blue moon phase indicator against the silver dial is absolutely perfect.

    It's also incredibly thin and svelte...maybe even more so than some pure hand-wound watches I own.



    My Reverso Duo has been getting the majority of my wrist time this year, but I think the MUT may take that crown in the near-term. It's probably the most well proportioned watch in my collection.

    So there you go. My week of extremes :)

    Love the JLC MUT Moon....beautiful. The Seiko is cool too, in a very toolish way.

    Both look great. Congrats. Being a Seiko fan I have to keep myself from looking that one up. I will inevitably get it if I do.

    The JLC lume cannot compete, the Seiko is obviously a nicer watch

    Mechanical compass? How does it work?
