Diving deeper into the depths of WISology:

Don't know if we are still doing vintage Thurs with new forums, wearing my "primative" looking Orient Star Retro Camera which also conjures images of "Mad Max" meets "Water World" for me. Probably as a result of 60s and 70s recreational residue!

But, as Luciano commented about Orient "Biker" watch perfection, the intricate design and subtle touches of Orient are truly mechanical works of art expressing ideas left up to your interpretation.

And more aptly, this black and silver beauty goes perfectly with my black Harley T-shirts! Vrrrrooooooooooommmm - now its a motorcycle watch!!!

Soon to arrive, this 'vintage' Speedmaster X-33, originally owned by USA squadron aviator! The watch was also worn when he became a commercial pilot, flying around the world. An active triathalon enthusiast and WIS, the owner finally relegated the X-33 to his collection....
