Hi, Thought I would show this watch, the pictures are not very good as I used my mobile.
I purchased this watch years ago, its condition is great for a 1970 watch and this is the problem, I always seem to scratch watches when i wear them and basically this is to nice to wear. I must be sad.
What do you think?
Peter.

I watch a program on TV called Chasing Cars. Some American classic car dealer goes around the States buying nice expensive old cars. He went to this old folks house where they were selling a 1970(ish) Ferrari Dino with about 7,000 miles on the clock. The women said 'I love driving this car but didn't want to put miles on to it' .... well what a f-in stupid arse rich pair of twods they are! F-in use the ******* car! Same goes for these watches. Let someone else be the sad f-ker that leaves it in the draw then drops dead without actually enjoying wearing the watch. Life IS too short trust me I know!

Tone
A bit strong there Tone, but I agree 100%:93:

Nice 7005, Peter!

+1 on the opinion that watches are made to be worn.
If you ding it, then the ding is just part of your story w/ the watch.

I used to have this white 7005, but I wasn't wearing it so I let it go to someone who would:

Well I seem to have opened some strong opinions, and after reflection I suppose you are all correct. I will have to give it some thought. wear it or sell it, on reading your posts I have just realised I have a white one somewhere not seen that for years, but thats another problem I have lots of watches scattered around the house the wife usually finds them because I have forgotten where I put them.

Many will agree with your sentiments Tony but this is a open watch forum not the bar down the road in the Fanny Craddock so "Tone" it down a little please :)

They come equipped with straps and bracelets for a reason. Slip it on from time to time and you'll appreciate it all the more.

Just been discussing my love of 7005s over in another thread, and this is probably their king. I wholly understand why you're reluctant to wear it but I would agree it should go to someone who will, unless of course it holds particular sentimental value to you. As an aside, I've never bought a NOS watch since I would essentially be paying a premium to be more reluctant to wear it!

What would you do if you saw another one for sale either in the trade forum or on the 'bay? Would you buy another and then wear this one? If so, then strap it on now and be on the lookout for another!

Lovely watch, by the way...

Dan
