what is your next purchase

Post by SeikoJohn on Wed Aug 30 2017, 10:58

After seeing the comments and photos on the thread " what do you really want" with some really great entries it got me thinking what do you plan to be your next purchase ? for me I am mulling over the idea of a dress style watch possibly a Seiko SQ Quartz similar to this



It is very different from my usual buys as it is smaller and quite a smart watch where as I normally go for big bold and divers style .

So what is on your list of possible next buys ? ?

Given I like vintage or antique watches its invariably what I come across rather than a specific watch I want to buy next. That said there are a lot of watches on the Forum I really like so the temptation is always there to go for something more modern. Very Happy

There's been quite a few watches I have really liked including the various Aragon watches. One favourite was one Bruce did a write up on which was the Odyssey Chronograph. A beautiful looking watch.  Very Happy

Who would have thought within 12 hours of my original post saying I was contemplating buying a Seiko SQ that I now own one Shocked  

I blame Domecurb as he is the one that pointed one for sale out to me and he knows I am a weak weak man who does not need much persuasion to part with my money .

Requires a bit of a clean up and try to remove scratches from the crystal or replace it but here is what I bought

That's a hard one to answer right now. I've got my Zetime smartwatch via kickstarter being delivered in the next month hopefully, though I paid for that ages ago. The next one is likely to be either another Aragon or a Seiko diver. I didn't have any divers when I joined this forum but somehow seem to have caught the buzz.

the 7546 is a relative of the 9f movement, very accurate, but unfortunatly getting quite rare

Good luck fella I hope you either succeed getting it working or manage to find a movement for it.

I like this style in the 7546

That looks to be in good condition & a nice clean dial so a good find. 

Will be be interested to see if you can polish out the scratch on the 

glass or if it will need to be replaced.
