The current wishlist

Nov 29, 2019,15:18 PM

Hi All

A few that are currently on the radar, in no particular order

Omega Chronostop

Parking Alarm

Seiko Chronograph

Alarm watch

Framont parking Alarm

Rolex Explorer

Alarm with a Venus movement

Watch with Gold medallion

Grand Seiko

Another Bellmatic

King Seiko

Revue Thommen cricket

A n other

A N Other alarm

It's good to have a big list, but there's always more to add to it & it changes way too regularly for it to be a plan!

Sometimes a happy coincidence occurs & you get something totally different.

Still hunting

"What I really . . .

. . . really want . . ." So, what does my wish list look like? Yep, a goose egg. Or, in American sporting parlance: zero. Everything I really, really want, I already have. (Or have on order.) Maybe, just maybe, another Omega, a ref 2909 Seamaster chronome...

There's just been a really good program on Radio 4 in the UK about Bibliomania as I was listening I was thinking I recognise a lot of what was being discussed, but about watches instead. Hope the above link ok, if not please remo... 

I am listening to the program literally following an eBay auction . . .

. . . count down to its final minutes for an Omega buckle. At 4 AM. And thinking, "My God, I'm a watch-maniac, not a -phile." ;-)

The Omega Chronostop would be a perfect companion for your Memomatic. As well as the Parking... Yes, you really should grab it!

Now, as you are talking about the Omega Chronostop, why not trying to find a Lemania Tg 195? The Rolex Explorer would be another great addition, but which reference? Ambitious list, but as you said, you never know what will come in addition to this list.....  

Thanks - you're right Chronostop is a great fit

It'd have to be one with an orange seconds hand. Really like the size too - small by today's standards, but with lots of presence. That Lemania looks great too - it's the advantage of this site that someone can suggest some other great alternatives. As fo... 

With you on the Chronostop, my friend. Esp a drivers dial version to be worn on inside of the wrist.

And an Explorer too - the version with straight / non cathedral hour hand and a black dial - mmmmmm. If you like those Omega hands, then a Dynamic and some of their 70's chronographs also have them ;-) Here's a Xmas present I got for myself: And one for m...  

Great pair of Omega Dynamics - look fab with the orange second hand

I've not forgotten a Dynamic - been searching intermittently since you posted your others a while back. Drivers Chronostop - a great choice & even more idiosyncratic the the original, I'm also in the no date camp as well. Cheers JML
