Loved the professionals as a lad. Bodie was always my favourite!!
Here is my watches collection close to those featured in the series. A lemania 5100 from later episodes and a Jenny Caribbean from earlier episodes.
Not watch related but i also have a rare Pye pf8 pocketfone featured in the series too.

Looks like a lot of cool stuff related to the series, though I'm not familiar with it. Can you tell more about the series?

I had one new in 1972, and in 1974 I drove right across Europe in it, down into Italy as far as Florence and into the then Yugoslavia to Postonja returning via the Great St Bernard Pass into Switzerland. Great car :cool:

It was lots of fun John, a real adventure with my girlfriend.......
Landed in Belgium at Ostend, then into Germany, stayed first night near Cologne, then across Germany into Austria, stayed second night in Innsbruck. Over the Brenner Pass next day into Italy over the Dolomites, 'interesting' roads, sheer drop down one side, no barriers, just a stone block every 100 yards or so :eek:hmy: , then via Cortina d'Ampezzo to our hotel in Lido di Jesolo
We used Lido as a base and had days out, to Milan, Bologna, driving down the Autostrada del Sole as far as Florence, then further days in Venice and also across the border at Trieste into Yugoslavia to the Cave system at Postojna :cool: . After a week we drove back out of Italy into Switzerland via the Great St Bernard Pass, over the Alps into Switzerland and finally home via France, Luxembourg and Belgium.
All in a car that looked identical to this one :-

Nice collection there, I'm also a fan of The Professionals. I was shocked to hear of Lewis Colin's passing away though :(
