with another Omega Chronometer. Taken quickly with a mobile phone. /W72 ...  

I have a feeling there will be a few more Omega chronometers . . .

Very nice! [nt]

Have it for some time and in need of a service. /W72

Lovely Constellation!

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:18
Glad they introduced the Globemaster, with some of the Constellation design elements of the golden era

Cheers, Padj [nt]

Thank you and I agree

Very nice! [nt]

Thanks, hs111

Tell us more about this one!

Looking very interesting indeed

I was sure there would be entries from . . .

Thanks, mate! [nt]

I'm sure you knew I'd have a soft spot . . .

 By: Dr No : July 13th, 2018-07:01
. . . for those Princes, Julian - right up my alley. Thanks for bringing them to the party!

Hmmm. While knowing next to nothing . . .

 By: Dr No : July 13th, 2018-00:10
. . . about vintage UN, that example doesn't look authentic to my eyes. Perhaps there's a UN collector here who can weigh in authoritatively. But it seems like a second-rate refinished dial. And a chrono graph , to boot. Very few chronographs perform doub... 

Art.. i posted an update in the UN forum based on your comment above. Thank you for your input.

 By: Teacher Yang : July 13th, 2018-00:29
I do keep track of some interesting vintage watches.. this one comes from a reputable seller/collector.. i guess its difficult to trust anyone in the vintage world..

No, no, no!

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-06:04
You don't have to put a watch on your wrist. There are 3 categories of judging. I was just asking because I thought may be you needed some medicated cream for your leathery skin condition.

Ok.. Padj is back to normal self..

 By: Teacher Yang : July 15th, 2018-07:51
I dont like you being serious.. ha..

WS is a weekly thread...

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:29
Where Puristspro members are encouraged to post watch pictures following a specific theme, as defined by the host of the week. The pictures are then judged in three categories - wristshot, static and watch of the week. That’s it, really - just a fun commu... 

Still on my wrist.

 By: fernando : July 12th, 2018-19:22
Luckily it's a chronometer. Cheers Fernando ...  

It would be interesting to count how many Omegas vs. how many Rolexes (Rolexi?) are posted.

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-03:43
That is a very eye-catching piece, Fernando.

The Red Devil! ;) [nt]

Little doubt that Rolex produces more certified chronometers than any other manufacturer . . .

 By: Dr No : July 13th, 2018-12:24

Nice photos.

A very tasty watch.

Of all modern chronometers, Glashütte's . . .

 By: Dr No : July 13th, 2018-12:50
. . . is, in my humble opinion, the most compelling. I can't participate at that level anymore, sad to say . . . would've loved to own one. Art

That’s simply a great collection, Adam!

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:32
Especially like the feature that the minute hand jumps when the watch is being set, so as to ensure absolute accurate placement of it. Great GOs!

I'm sure père Kev . . .

 By: Dr No : July 13th, 2018-13:03
. . . had some influence shaping Junior's taste in watches. Dad's Longines . . . . . . certainly shaped mine. ;-) PS - congrats on breaking the 1K milestone! [Note to judges: this is not a chronometer, so please don't consider it while deliberating.] ...  

Thank you very much for your kind words.

 By: kev09 : July 13th, 2018-13:44
Your dad’s Longines - Wow! What a beautiful watch. Now that’s what I call great taste. Regards Kev.

Very nice shot, Art!

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:33

A fantastic chronometer duo!

And a great album to go with them

You knew . . .

 By: Dr No : July 14th, 2018-11:00
. . . this was coming. And, I would be remiss to not take advantage of this opportunity in sharing a photo taken four years ago . . . . . . when our esteemed colleague Andrew D was in town. If I recall correctly, Pink Floyd was his favorite band. ...  

Lovely Song:-)

 By: RG1 : July 14th, 2018-21:47
and superb shot of great watch with famous pig.... Thanks for sharing

Come to think of it, that just might be . . .

 By: Dr No : July 15th, 2018-13:42
. . . the best wrist shot I've ever taken. I mean, how much better can it get than to have a Dark Side paired with a Wall? ;-)

2 more chronometers

New and old chronometers! On the left wrist today my ref: 116000 back from full service under guarantee after only 7 months of ownership from new and on my right wrist, I am exercising my Constellation on its alligator strap, resting its 1965 original BOR...

. . . as an American who had (or is that has ) the benefit of a British primary school education, the bonds are deep, even if they're not always evident. And thanks for joining in today - that crosshair Connie is my kinda watch. Art

For chronometers...

But we are happy!

Great wrist shot.

Let me ask you...

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-06:10
which do you like better? I know which one I favor.


 By: nomadgiles : July 13th, 2018-06:37
difficult to choose, my friend. UN gets more wrist time, for sure. The GP running slow & needs a service, but prefer it on the steel bracelet. I think if it came down to selling one, I'd keep the UN - KM can live in hope ;-) Which one would you prefer? Ch... 

The one heading to Austria, perhaps.

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-06:43
If that is a decision that is made, don't be surprised to read about a mail heist somewhere between the Firth of Forth and the Danube.

If it does happen.....

 By: nomadgiles : July 13th, 2018-07:53
.....it'll be delivered in a vintage Mini with Union Jack painted on the roof (plus a couple of decoys) ;-)

Austin Powers?

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-12:01
Or Mark Wahlberg?

Micheal Caine! [nt]

 By: nomadgiles : July 13th, 2018-14:29

I'll know who to look for.

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-15:16
Let KM know he has no chance.

Cheers, Giles

Thanks HS111!

 By: nomadgiles : July 14th, 2018-02:10
And have a great weekend too! Best, Giles.

What a superb chronometer trio!

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:39
Which are just as charming in the real

Thanks Kristjan! 🙂

 By: nomadgiles : July 14th, 2018-12:13
Hope the holidays are going well! Best, Giles.

Generally yes...

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-22:39
As always with small children relaxing moments are few and far between but overall all is good Weird to be in a country where Pepsi is omnipresent and Coke is hard to find - with my Coca Cola consumption this is a bit of a challenge

You’ve gone on the ‘Pepsi Challenge’ 😉

 By: nomadgiles : July 15th, 2018-00:54
Probably heresy - could never taste the difference. When my boys where 1 & 3 we went to Devon in our VW campervan (a hangover from kid free festivals / band days) - needless to say we came home a week early for a rest - I can imagine Pepsi is the leas... 

For me Pepsi is a real challenge...

 By: KMII : July 15th, 2018-05:58
As Coke is my coffee substitute - so going without brings out caffeine withdrawal symptoms

I'd take that lovely Seamaster anytime ...

 By: NT931 : July 13th, 2018-05:59
... Over most of the Neo-vintage watches (omega and others) now in the market.

Hadn't seen that Bucherer before.

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-06:45
It's a brand that is only now making more of an appearance here in the States. Very nice; and nice selection.

Thanks! [nt]

 By: Emil Wojcik : July 13th, 2018-10:13

Cool trio!

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:40
How far back did Bucherer start making their own watches?

This is a theme on works for me... I have a huge weakness for manual winding chronometers, which I find more " noble " than automatic.

 By: amanico : July 13th, 2018-06:45
But for the moment, I only have one manual winding I could also add: - The JLC MARK 11 For the Royal Australian Air Force: I am hunting a manual winding Omega Chronometer " big " case, a Zenith Cal 135. And if possible, a Peseux 260 in a steel case. Now, ...  

Oh yes! [nt]

 By: amanico : July 13th, 2018-22:31

Eh, but what a one it is, huh?!

 By: DruidPadj : July 13th, 2018-07:08
The Geophysic is as important as Bounce's Omega Co-axial in its way.

You could make it easier on yourself and latch onto . . .

 By: Dr No : July 15th, 2018-13:50
. . . one of the smaller Omega chronomètres, Nicolas. They've been appearing with astonishing regularity recently. And on the wrist, they're incomparably tasteful. Art

Stunning shots my friend!! Not a surprise coming from you! The watches? Sublimes! I´m specialy fond of the Geophysic, you know.

 By: Subexplorer : July 13th, 2018-13:06
But any other chronometres you show would make me a very happy man! Have a nice week end my dear friend! Cheers! Abel

Wow, Nico !.. You have now inundated us with a whole bunch of great choices + that special shot with multiple GMT Masters !

 By: hs111 : July 14th, 2018-02:01
.. and the Vintage Geophysic is “beyond” anyway ! & PLUS the cool Air King, a bit summerly exuberant, but very cool ! All hard to beat, my friend, very had, ibdeed ! Cheers & HAGWE to you & yours ! Best, hs.

That’s quite a collection of chronometers, Nico!

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-02:42
Any particular Peseaux 260 powered one you are after?

Reminding me...

 By: KMII : July 14th, 2018-22:50
Kari Voutilainen also did some Peseaux 260 pieces, right?

Kari's first offerings were Peseaux 260 derivatives . . .
