Hello folks,


As you may have noticed, I have been on a flurry lately, and then Google Drive broke their "direct link" code, so I have fallen behind, and lost track of, what recent wrist-shots I have posted. :-/


Since having my WISdom reawakened by the Seiko Spork a few months ago, I have been trying to wear a different watch every day, and take a picture of it (and my shirt!) when I get home. ;-)


I apologize if some of these you have already seen, but below is a compendium of my most recent wrist-shots, with the comments that I had planned to post with them.



********************************************************



I *knew* I had another Seiko Kinetic, here is my SDBW011 Titanium Flightmaster GMT. It was sitting in a special place of honor, away from the other Seiko Kinetics, that is to say, on top of my Seiko Inductive Energy Source! ^L^


When you look closely, this is a fairly fancy watch, with it's "battery-free" Kinetic quartz movement, hardened Titanium construction, double GMT complication (one 24 hour ring on the chapter ring and another on the bezel), and fancy finishing (the two-tone two-texture bezel, the "S" second hand, the shield-shaped hour markers, the highly engraved caseback, and the checkerboard texture on the dial).

Here is a slightly tighter crop that may give a better view of the dial texture. (My old Canon 10D only has 6 megapixels, so I can't do much better!)

I forgot to take a picture of the caseback, so here is a very old picture of it. Stylin'! =L=

Did you know that Citizen brought out a "copycat" model? I don't think it holds a candle to this Seiko though, with it's "clacky" bezel and less detailed design. What? Oh! Of course I own one! :-D

Wearing my recent Swiss watch acquisition today, the Oris 36mm Big Crown Pointer Date.


Isn't that sweet? 25 jewel movement, decorated movement, display back, nice cathedral hands, a very detailed dial, and of course my favorite part is the pointer date hand. I just love that complication!

It even has lume! :-D

Here is a bright sunny watch, the Orient CEM65001YW.


I was wearing my Orient Makos a couple of weeks ago, and this one get left behind. I guess I didn't have an "office" shirt the right color. :-/


But the weather got colder, and my "Jewel Tone" flannel shirt came in handy, and it works just fine with this watch. :-D

The other SARG goes out on Patrol. :-D


I finally got the bracelets for my SARG005 and SARG007, although it took so long, it's getting cool enough to switch back to their leather straps. :-/


But I think the bracelet adds a bit of sportiness, and makes them look more like a tool watch; even more military.

I wore my 1966 NOS Seikomatic-R to work today, and it is just flawless!


I hated to use the beautiful signed buckle on the 48 tear-old strap, but I didn't have a deployant small enough. :-/


But what a classically handsome design! Can you imagine how dated a 48 year-old stereo would look? Or a telephone? Or car? Yet this looks sharp and perfectly modern, in my opinion.

I am not very careful with my watches, when I am wearing them. I forget what I have on and sometimes bash them into door frames and so forth. :-O Today was a very paranoid day! :-D But I made it!

Wearing my fanciest dress Seiko, it's a beauty!


I keep saying I am not much of a dress watch guy, and I do not dress up very much and go out to high class events, but at the same time I really fell hard for this watch. I can just sit and stare at it, it's so "right", the colors of the case, dial and strap are so harmonious.


Wearing it today with a quality, creamy Ecru (off-white) Oxford shirt.

********************************************************



Wearing my modest Seiko Diashock "Sea Lion" today.


Not one of my "high spec" Seikos, this modest 17-jewel hand-wind Seiko Diashock has a normal low-beat movement and no day or date complications, but it does feature a crisp and legible "Sea Lion" on the case-back (I love the whiskers).

That is what I bought it for, and I didn't pay much either! :-D


On it's new modern Seiko strap, I think it looks perfectly respectable, despite a small mark on the dial.

********************************************************



I am wearing my 1967 Seikomatic-P 5106-8010, 33 jewel, "early chronograph movement" beauty today, on it's 47 year-old comfortable bracelet.


I know it is supposed to be an accurate movement, but I have been testing it today, and it is already fast by 4 or 5 seconds, so I may just throw it in the trash. :-D


Another nice thing is this is an "instant change" movement, where close to midnight the day and date change, "snap", in an instant!

And it don't look too bad either, just look at that dial texture! Sharp!

A good color combo today, with my Seiko SKJ003 Kinetic Diver.


I had to run out to a specialty grocery store early this morning, to get some D.O.P. whole tomatoes for making a vat of Italian=American Red Sauce.


So, I had to get dressed, which for me, like most of you I am sure, means putting on a watch! :-D


I grabbed a handsome pepsi Seiko SKJ003 Kinetic Diver, and tossed on a red Duofold double-layer cotton turtle-neck and a blue, hooded sweatshirt, since our temperature has plummeted yesterday (in the 30's last night).


As I drove to the sore I checked the time, and noticed how well all the colors went together. :-D

The hands on that Seiko kinetic GMT are beautiful. Loving the "S" on the Second hand.

Me: "WRUW while drinking?"
Quotron: "If I do it right.... nothing."
