Sotc massive shake up

Post by Iceblue on Sat Jun 16 2018, 14:21

So after a 7 month journey off deciding what to keep and what to sell I had settled at the moment with the following , I've managed to raise some much needed funds that will help with my family life massively

The first one is a newly arrived breitling aerospace repitition minute , it can from a guy I deal with in wàtches, freshly serviced and a new bezel fitted this Titanuim watch is very nice and light on the wrist


Next is my watch the my missis and my mother and father inlaw gave me funds with some off my own funds for my 40th , it's the tag heuer Monaco aka Steve McQueen , I've resently fitted a blue rubber strap to it and it seems to give the dress watch a lovely sporty look to it


And my tool watch it's the chunky massive 48mm breitling super avenger , it's a massive presents on the wrist and something of a beast sitting next to the other wàtches in the collection


Last at the moment in the collection is a g shock rangerman , a great bit of kit with loads of functions , time , time zones , date, stopwatch , timer , barometer, thermometer , sun rise and sunset times , the list goes on its chunky at 45mm but with the solar charging the battery with sun light ,it make it a great all round beater of a watch

Yep thinks are progressing nicely and the collection has never been this low , I have a 5 section watch box and guess what I only have four in it lol , so one space for another watch , something like a Seiko or hamtun or Armida just to fill that space cheers lol!

Wow your collection certainly has been thinned out Andy, some very nice watches remain though.
Forget about the Hamtum you need a Seiko , everyone needs a seiko in their collection .. you know it makes sense Very Happy
