Watch arses

  • Slightly complicated arse on this.
    Very comfortable all the same.

    Edit: and it's absolutely filthy!

  • A few of the more interesting watch bums from my collection.

    Dammit man, name them! :)

    Top is a William L. It was the 20th watch he ever produced.
    Then middle row is a Christopher Ward VC3 Morgan, a no name Chinese pilots watch and a Seagull 63.
    Bottom is an omega speedmaster!

    Thought I recognised a Sea Gull movement in there.

    The William L one sound interesting, not heard of them before.

    The Speedie is unmistakable!

    I think of that episode regularly when wearing it.
    In 10 odd years of ownership, I've managed to control myself!




  • My year old Seamaster:

    My other watches have rather plain Sellita movements.




  • Sold this one a while back,

    SAS Air first edition.

    A plain enough case back, but the watch is one of my favourites, mainly due to how solid it is: Steinhart Nav B-Uhr Type B




  • Swapping out a strap today on the Globemaster and had to take a pic, love the finish on this movement.

    P.S. serial number pixelated out in case you're wondering why it's blurred in parts

  • Stowa arse!

    A lot of watch! Beautiful movement for the £££.

    My oldest watch, a 1959 Longines Conquest. The green enamel on the back is showing it's age, still a beauty though and a great timekeeper.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.





  • Nothing too exciting, but I like this seiko brightz back.

  • Diver's ass. But what is interesting is that it has a fairly low serial number (just 2 digits blotted out), and being a special edition means they're only being made for a year. This is from Sept 19 so the year is almost up, but you never know with Seiko.

    Seiko King Turtle btw.

    Fg might have been right about buying a few Seiko divers.

  • Vostok Amphibia 170548 (Pamphibia)

    Nomos Tangente. A beautiful movement for the money.




  • Snap!

    Same movement in an Orion

  • Pair of beauts! Is that the 35 dakar? How does it wear? Leaning towards a tangente 35 for the next incoming but apprehensive about the sizing on a 6.75”

    It’s the 38 date. Sits well on my 7.5” wrist.

    If you excuse the quick crap pic, this is a 38 on my just under 7 inch wrist. I was struggling between picking the 35.5 and 38. The reason for the pic is just to show the unusual lugs that really protrude. It kind of makes the watch wear a bit bigger as a result. This leads me to believe that the 35.5 wouldn't be as small as it sounds buy I still think for a 6 and three quarter wrist, the 38 is the better option.

    I have some more on the phone I think. I’ll throw them up on the watchmen thread to leave the lovely arses thread on topic ;)

    Interesting take on it! Do the lugs overhang/sit flush on your wrist, would you mind posting a side profile view on the pics thread if not too much hassle? Really conflicting anecdotal experiences online.



    Tried on my better half's DW/tangente ripoff today - it's 35*42mm with 18mm lugs, feels like a 20c coin on my wrist after taking off the Sinn.



    Sorry Wibbs, back on topic now...

    Mmmm very nice.

    I am eyeing the same model in midnight blue a little lately.

    That 38 (or is it 37.5 even I think) is perfect on your wrist.

    Do it - I'd imagine it sits similar to your Antea 390? I think I've finally arrived at the realization that the 38's lug to lug (bigger than my Sinn 104) is too much to sit flat on my wrist. I'd be buying the blue in a heartbeat otherwise.


    Given dark dials look smaller, not sure I could pull off the 35 blue.



    Well that's that decision made for me, never thought I'd be looking to buy a silver dial 35mm - where's my bank card now...




  • A fine arse on this one IMO ;)

    Stukas for the fear effect...or an IL2 Sturmovik if we're opening the field to all WWII planes :D would be my choice :)

    Wibbs might know - what did the soviet pilots use for "fliegers"?

    I am now off to load up IL2 and play a campaign or 2 ;)
    I haven't played a flight sim in years!
