On the Seiko side, to get my 6105, 6309 and 6139 champagne Pogue back. On the non Seiko side, to get my 16610 back. Sold them to pay a family member's medical bills. Probably won't get them back though. Prices have gone thru the roof since I sold them. Prices for a comparable sub (it was a full set ) have gone up by almost 2k usd.the Seikos' prices aren't as insane but have rocketed up too

An admirable and difficult thing to do. Kudos to you sir as we discuss the Christmas spirit.

I have a black Bullhead that will be sent off to Sir Alan shortly. I also have several Seiko three-handers that I intend to begin my restoration journey on to learn to tear apart and rebuild. I have a few more tools coming on their merry way too.

But on the cruise ship they have Zenith El Primero chronos. Oh my!

Not really an Xmas person ( sorry ) but I suspect this one will probably land round about December time.
Was originally planned for a September delivery but in the way of all good Kickstarter projects it's running late.
Not too fussed about the delay as I think it's going to be a great watch for the money :

Have not had anything on my Christmas list in a long time, my wife and I don't really exchange gifts on any occasions, little things is all we do. We focus mostly on the rest of the family, kids and grandkids. I suppose if I were to put something horological on the list it would be just parts. I'd love to get the parts to restore a brown Bullhead I have.

Hoping to acquire my first vintage Seiko diver. A 6309 probably, but maybe a 6105 if I can save enough. If Santa's buying, a '69 quartz-astron

Well if father xmas is being nice Iíll have an Omega Flightmaster first gen please, oh and a Ploprof and about fifty seven different Seiko models. And maybe a Ulysses Nardin.

But in reality? I will ask for a new magvisor, maybe a better loupe, and I could do with a nice Arkansas stone. I could do with about half the new and massive Cousins catalogue, so where to start really? A burnisher would be good. A decent set of watchmakers files and broaches. I could carry on...

Nothing fancy for me but i've wore the MM300 for nearly 2 1/2 years non stop so perhaps time to retire it (for a while) and get something common like a 6159-7001 ?

There is absolutely nothing I need for Christmas because I've been a bad boy the whole year Perhaps a stocking stuffed with discipline would be nice.

That makes two of us, Russ. I've been a very naughty boy this year.

(That apart, I try not to have any watches in transit to me in the run-up to Christmas).

PS - Maybe a space-flown Yema Spationaute III in the New Year.
