With 2017 drawing to a close what have been your favourite
watch additions during the year?


For me this silver pocket watch was one of my favourites.

2017 Favourites 0d9d1810

With it being hallmarked in 1758 it makes it the oldest watch I 
have.

2017 Favourites 2a9e3e10

It has certainly seen a lot of history over 259 years & still
works perfectly.

2017 Favourites C92a7710

Another favourite has been this 9ct Longines Flagship. 

2017 Favourites Abeaf010

Coincidentally, it turned out to be a birth year watch so that added 
to its appeal.

It has the Longines calibre 340 movement which I think looks
beautiful.

2017 Favourites 0f269910

Would love to see any other favourites people have had in 2017. Very Happy

having just looked at my collection I can safely say I have two that I find hard to seperate .. Firstly is the Tauchmeister T0251 which I really like the look of it and the feel of it on the wrist

2017 Favourites IMG_20171007_164440396-01

Secondly is an Invicta Grand Diver I like this one because of its chunkiness and build , I certainly know it is on the wrist due to its weight .

Two great looking watches John. I think, by a whisker, I like the
Invicta most. The hour markers and deep recessed dial are 
fantastic.

i think i have the winner for me turning up tomorrow......i hope so anyway or it will be after new year if not Shocked  that would be unbearable, but then again the watches i have bought recently will be high on the list so a fallback if the post lets me down would need to be the Halios Puck...not everyone's taste, but just on build alone its a stunner...in fact faultless

That is lovely & had a lot of competition from some of the special 
watches you have bought this year. Everyone will be intrigued to
find out what is coming in the post though. Fingers crossed it
arrives today.

That’s disappointing. If it’s not destined though to be a great way to end the old year hopefully it will be a great start to the new year. Very Happy
