Been Awhile Since I've Posted Any Watch Photos>>>>>>>

I've been pretty busy lately. But here's a couple of photos of my latest pick up - a simple 16610:







Picked up a Pepsi too earlier in this year:





And I jumped on the iPhone band wagon with the 3G...



Hope you enjoyed the photos!

The blue sub is about my favorite in my collection.

This reminds me of the "materialism ftw!" comment in a previous post when someone posted a single picture of a watch.

To a much larger degree.

nice watches and photos

If I remember correctly, The OP is a professional watch photographer - It would make sense that he has some nice ones in his collection.

How is showing off your watch any different than showing off your car?

Because this is a car forum, thus, it's kosher to show it off?

Is it any less materialistic than showing off your house(s)?

Nice watches.

Since you are clearly a watch guy, what do you think of Orbita watch winders? I'm actually picking my brother up one tomorrow for an Xmas gift. It turns out that they are made in the same city that I'm living in.

I've been wearing the stainless Submariner for 10 years. It's a classic.

I'm a HUGE Orbita guy!!

Here's a link to a review I did on the new Sparta Single Winder

Here's another review I did on the Orbita Avanti 6 watch winder.

Here's my Orbita Quatro Executive - best winder they ever made in my humble opinion. I call it the "Rolex Condo"....



Here's another Oribta I own, but I'm not currently using...nice winder though:

I hate my dad's Submariner. It's way too flashy and gaudy. It screams old man with lots of money to me.

A combination - the Submariner is a pre-loved model that my brother in law got in Feburary. He REALLY wanted a ss/pt Yacht-Master but the the Sub was more in his price range at the time. I picked up a ss/pt Yachty like new at a GREAT price and traded him out of his Sub. So now I own three Subs:

1970 Red Submariner 1680:



Y Series (around 2003) Submariner 16610:



F Series (around 2005) Submariner 16613:
