Default SOTC - my box of 18


[size=1em]Apologies in advance - I'm not much of a photographer.

[size=1em]I just got my case insert and thought I'd put together a group shot.
[size=1em]The Sinn 556I and the KS 5245-6000 are my wife's - they fit right in and I didn't want to leave empty slots.

I've never put them in one place before. Doing so makes me feel kinda:

I hate you


Seriously great collection of watches, thanks for showing them, even though you make me jealous.


My fav' is the Zenith btw, followed by the blue Samurai and GS

[size=1em]Thanks M&P -

[size=1em]Yeah the Zenith is something else. Reading about the high-beat El Primero turned me on to Seiko in the first place.
[size=1em]So really, I blame the Swiss.

The Snowflake is probably my 'best' watch, followed by the Zenith, but if I had to pick a favorite [size=1em]I'd go with the old divers - the 6215/6217.

Pretty bloody cool collection. The marinemaster 300 would be my pic of the display. Thanks for the look. Cheers
