    Can we see your very rarest pieces.

    Open up your safes, vaults and hidey holes and show us your very rarest pieces if you dare. I have a couple of rarities - the one in the pic being the Fleurier made by the Arcadia watch company. This is one of the only 50 ever made, they were never on the open market but only offered to selected customers, so I am pretty lucky to have this one.

    Great idea, I love unusual and rare pieces! I can’t wait to see what this forum has to offer in terms of extravagance and out of the beaten path watches.

    I am adding two of my pieces who are pretty rare, even though forum members here have seen them multiple times.

    My Linde Werdelin Oktopus Carbon (limited to 88 pieces), and my Chronoswiss Sirius Artist solid gold (not limited per se, but who has ever seen one in real life?). They probably make only a handful of those every year since they started in 2013 (2014 for this variation).

    All the best,
    A.

    Pretty mundane aesthetically but one of 26 in the world so pretty rare, at least to me, JLC's homage to it's London Boutique . . .

    Love the octopus case back.

    How often do you wear it? Conversations started about it every time?

    Love the Chronoswiss - a very overlooked and underrated brand and considering their quality - good value. I have several including their exquisite Opus.

    Beautiful understated design and unusual colour but works so well. Definitely a keeper.

    I wear it maybe 2 days a week, at the pool, BBQ, and whenever it's sunny and I have short sleeves. It is a conversation starter, but I would still say that 3 out of 4 persons don't even notice it.

    Thank you! They are a great brand, and I wish them luck for the future. They have an odd positioning between mid tier bold and classy watches, a few entry level pieces, and a few high end ones.

    This one is probably my “rarist”, though it is based on a model that is fairly common. 40mm Fifty Fathoms, Ocean Commitment Version III. It and the Tribute to Milspec are the only two modern FF’s that don’t look ridiculous on my 6¼ inch wrist.

    Man that’s an awesome BP, congrats! It is arguably my favorite dive watch, and if the prices and availability were not insane it would definitely be next on my list.

    What’s the story behind it?
