Great theme, Abel! And happy to participate without any shame! 🤣

Beautiful Longines you found!

I’m curious to see all your other ones you will share with us.

Here are a couple of mine.
The Movado Kingmatic is a recent find, and a model that thanks to fellow member Renerod, I knew of, but not really looking to get one. Lo and behold, this one popped up in FB marketplace and I just couldn’t resist. wink


And, this Seamaster 300 is the result of late night internet browsing. Found it at a very reasonable price, and the patina on the dial, plus the faded bezel was what drew me in. You know the story, and a couple of clicks later, it was on its way to me.





Great weekend to all,

Alex

Our event for Friday 26th “Bought on a Whim” is OPEN now!!

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-12:37
Dear friends: I have the pleasure of being your host this weekend. Our theme requires some kind of confession from me and from our participants. Let me explain: The buying of a new watch usually requires much thoughts and planning and previous financial s...  

I will be sharing some of my “bought on a whim” watches later…

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-12:46
Here one of them. While visiting one of my favorite vintage watches shop I viewed this 1960’s Longines Conquest on the wrist of one of the assistants of the shop owner. I asked him to show it to me and fell in love with the overall great condition of the ...  

I feel we all need to get some popcorn and pull up a chair ….

Fantastic watch on a whim

 
 By: Moka-Tiger (Ron) : May 26th, 2023-16:00
It looks like the cyclops is outlined in gold. I've never seen that before. Pretty fancy.

Thank you so much Ron for your kind comments. I´m glad you like this watch. The cyclops is on the inside of glass and it is not outlined. It is probably a light reflex from the golden indexes.

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-16:27
I have another watches: a diving model from Ulisse Nardin and a vintage Engineur by IWC which also have the cyclops inside glass though of course an outside cyclops is more generally adopted by Rolex and many other brands. I feel the cyclops inside is mor... 

My AD, whom I am friends with was having a watch show and I decided to go.

Went in looked around and spotted this. Decided right then that I wanted it, so I walked out with it. The rest as they say, is "wristery". ...  

That truly is an unplanned buy Thomas!! Thank you so much…

Hello dear Alex! No shame with unplanned purchases! Well done! I guess most of us have had a whim impulse sometime during the collecting journey. I look forward for many entries this weekend.

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-16:34
You share a great couple and I´m sure you have no regrets about following your impulse to own them. Movado is a brand I admire so much. You got a very classy and classic timepiece here. And the Bond SM ... you did so well to follow your whim! I own the sa... 

Nice Seamaster …

I really enjoy these great diver inspired watches.

Is THIS even a ligitimate whim?

Many years ago I wanted a BIG watch. This one is big (52mm) and in my eyes looked pretty and had a vintage look. So on a whim I bought first and then read later about what I had bought. Oh no! A pocket-watch conversion frowned upon by watch enthusiasts. I...

Really interesting …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : May 26th, 2023-18:52
The Moeris was a good choice for an impulse purchase 👍

Resistance is futile !

Hello Clive! Thank you so much for sharing the story behind your nice Longines bought on a whim. Even if its dial has been redone and most purist collectors won´t approve it´s a beautiful classic timepiece .

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-19:06
And the events around it´s purchase makes it very special for you. This makes it worth keeping and enjoying in your collection I feel. Guess many of us own watches which are not "perfect" from the strict purists standards but we still value and enjoy in o...

Hello Watchonthewrists! Stunning timepiece you share here with an interesting story of being purchased on a whim behind.

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-22:23
It is always interesting to be alert and take a look at the timepiece a watch seller is wearing. It often happens it is an interesting piece ... and to discover it is also for sale can lead to a satisfying unplanned purchase. Well played! Thank you for sh... 

Whims … I’ve had a few ( Frank Sinatra) 😉…

Ha ha ha!! I love your special version of "My Way" dear Captain. Well ... regrets I´ve had a few and I have lots of whims purchases too! Lol!

Two Tudors and the Syncron Military are two whims purchases that I wouldn´t resist myself. Well done my dear friend. Nice to know you still love and enjoy them so much. You created some suspense confessing that your list is long! Look forward to your retu... 

Regrets … I’ve had a few !

I generally have bad experiences with buying on a whim….

 
 By: ChristianDK : May 26th, 2023-20:19
As more often than not I have ended up regretting my decision. Of course there are exceptions. Especially this one I’m so happy to call mine. ...  

Hello Christian! Regret to read that you had bad experiences in general with your whim purchases. I can easily understand why you are happy with this one...

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 26th, 2023-22:15
... A vintage Benrus Type I is not an easy piece to find and specially in such a fine condition like yours. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful piece and I wish you´ll keep enjoying it so much. Hagwe! Abel

Thank you so much for your kind words Abel

 
 By: ChristianDK : May 30th, 2023-12:38
Yes, Im very happy with the charms of the Benrus. I think I enjoy the proces of thinking and researching what I wnat to buy and try out several times. This has also become a problem in recent years where one needs to decide instantly and even sometimes bu... 

It would take me all of three seconds to whip out my wallet . . .

Perhaps not, Christian. I've recently withdrawn from collecting vintage . . .

I totally understand. Those have been my concerns as well.

 
 By: ChristianDK : May 30th, 2023-19:15
I’m sorry to hear that though. I thought Omega was still possible to get high quality at reasonable prices. Sounds like that door has closed as well. The Tourbillon is exquisite. I can understand why it is your grail. I hope you will find a way to make it... 

Omega parts are still available . . .

 
 By: Dr No : May 30th, 2023-19:23
. . . but the efforts one has to make to find them are getting to be unreasonably difficult. I've written about this a few times over the last several years; the cumulative effect of those 'adventures' have simply become tiring. Or, to put it another way,... 

Legendary Benrus …

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : May 29th, 2023-10:28
A wonderful watch to have picked up on a whim. Good to have you joining this weekend Christian. Best regards Captain

lol, indeed!

 
 By: KURT_DAVID : May 27th, 2023-10:58
and thank you.

Hello Kurt! Agree with you: idle time in an airport is inviting to some whim purchases, be it chocolates, accesories for our cell phone, magazines... or watches!

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 27th, 2023-14:05
This one you share here is a great purchase for sure. I´m sure you will never regret it. Thank you for sharing with us in a nice shot. Cheers! Abel

Always a pleasure Abel, Wristscan is fun!

 
 By: KURT_DAVID : May 27th, 2023-17:21
Yes you are correct airports are inviting for whim purchases. My good lady always makes a beeline for the expensive perfume and luggage stores 🤷🏻‍♂️ 🍻

I always enjoy seeing how the water magnifies and warps the dial 👍

You were bang on with the age, it’s 1944/45. It is in good condition, but the dial has been restored and the crown replaced. Although the case and movement all match up as they should. I’ve definitely enjoyed wearing it 😀

Thank you so much for the clarification about the details of your charming vintage Omega Drek...

 
 By: Subexplorer : May 28th, 2023-17:31
Even if it has some "imperfections" from the point of view of a purist collector I feel that main thing is that you feel enjoyment when owning and wearing it. This watch is so nice indeed. Thank you again for sharing it here! Hagwe, Abel

You are very right there

 
 By: Drek : May 28th, 2023-19:58
I also enjoyed researching the watch after I bought it, which was the opposite of normal. Like walking a different way home, it’s always good to go a different way once in a while 😀

Mainly Swatches

 
 By: jml_watches : May 27th, 2023-10:55
The upside is that when you don't really love it, there aren't any consequences. There are then those where you only went to look, but that's another story. Cheers JML ...  

Swatch make some very tempting watches …

It was an unplanned purchase for me…
