It seems attractive!

Come have fun

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-11:17
I’m still thinking what photo I will take for this week. Wow, Boris and Captain Scarlet’s LE items are so cool. A Marine Nationale bag, and Aviator items. Oooo

OK, I'll play. I'll be wearing this for most of the weekend:

 By: Boris : September 2nd, 2022-10:19
Being a M.N. 22, I guess it qualifies as a limited edition, but in case not, I have also included its ancestor stamped M.N.80, which was definitely a limited edition. The other stuff, I got from the Marine Nationale online shop: the knife is the actual se...  


 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-11:02
That is a spectacular entry Boris. The M.N 22 edition juxtaposed with the cool bag and knife, and the “ancestor” M.N 80. Love it so much.

Love the MN theme!

Hello dear Cookies and the team ! Great theme ! This weekend I’m going to start with a limited threesome … The Flieger Verus 40 Vintage 95 limited edition is accompanied by a pair of Dunhill Spitfire cufflinks, made of metal from a Battle of Britain Spitf...  


 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-11:04
I laid my eyes on your sheepskin jacket, and Dunhill Cufflinks (made with the special recycled/upcycled metal) and Stowa watch. My eyes won’t move from the picture. Oooo la la!

Thank you dear friend 🙏 …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 2nd, 2022-13:08
I’m pleased that you like them, I love a little vintage upcycling 😉

Great shot and Limited pieces dear Captain!

 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2022-01:53
Stunning Flieger! And I absolutely love those Spit cuff links. Awesome! I would love to see your RAF flying jacket! Well played my dear friend!! Hagwe! Abel


 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:13
Perfect for the aviation and military enthusiasts

Thank you dear Count …,

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 4th, 2022-09:05
Something a little different can be good fun in a collection.

Uncle Bernard would've been pleased . . .

 By: Dr No : September 4th, 2022-13:06
. . . to make your acquaintance, Cap. Serving in the RAF was a point of immense pride for him, to say the least. Art

I don’t believe he flew a plane

 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2022-13:26
Or did he….he recently posted a pic of him flying a plane wearing a rectangular independant watch. Is it true he can fly a plane? The mystery deepens…heeheehee

My Uncle Bernard was a navigator on a Lancaster bomber . . .

 By: Dr No : September 4th, 2022-19:22
. . . towards the end of the war, Cookies. He was stationed in North Africa and never flew a combat mission, if memory serves correct. He was a dear friend of our family; I referred to him as 'Uncle' out of a combination of fondness and respect. Art

Good point Art …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 4th, 2022-13:32
I will make my post a tribute to him and all the other RAF Crews.

Thank you …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 4th, 2022-13:30
I’m sorry to disappoint but I don’t have the jacket with me today as it’s 32o and no other photos with me. I will post a separate post with this jacket in a few days for you. Best regards Captain

Very limited

 By: brauner : September 2nd, 2022-17:46
just one Manouche who is my son and a Nord Zeitmaschine Variocurve (just very few) ...  

Nice 1/1 :-)

 By: brauner : September 4th, 2022-15:37

Very interesting Nord piece

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-22:04
And taken with a very special loved one too! I’ve never seen a Nord in the wild before. Very niche brand.

One more pic of the watch

 By: brauner : September 4th, 2022-15:41

Happy days !

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 2nd, 2022-22:06

Thank you

That's a rare one!

Yes he is.

Nice theme

Probably only 12 made as salesmans pieces of caliber 560 in the 1960’s for the American market Limited one out og 90 made Hagwe Hans ...  

Very interesting and good shots Hans …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 2nd, 2022-22:08
Nice Pilot watch.

Interesting Omega

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-22:12
Curious to see that the Seamaster and Deville were in the same watch. Seldom seen vintage piece there. Is that a Laco pilot? It looks like a strap monster

You're pulling at my heart strings with omega

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:16
What's the brand of the pilot's watch?

A topic right 'up my alley'....

 By: InHavenPro : September 2nd, 2022-19:42
Not only is the watch itself as limited edition as it gets (#64 out of 100), but the tourmaline in quartz stone is purportedly rare, especially in this color combination that happens to match the watch colors immaculately well ........ (yes, black and ora...  

Good combo ! ….

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 2nd, 2022-22:10
The colour and texture are excellent 👌

Much appreciated Cap!

 By: InHavenPro : September 2nd, 2022-22:33
I sure love it . Cheers, Filip

My pleasure …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 2nd, 2022-22:41
Can you tell us anything more about the tourmaline in quartz stone. I love the colour.


 By: InHavenPro : September 3rd, 2022-04:40
for those who are spiritually inclined to any extent, it helps bring strength and balance to one's life.... I wasn't specifically looking to buy a tourmaline-infused quartz stone, but it was frankly the one I liked the most in a large store that specifica... 


 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 3rd, 2022-08:55
My wife has a beautiful Tourmaline ring and I love the colour.

One rare bird

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-22:58
As Nico often says of rare watches. I went to read on Amvox LE’s and yours in a beautiful and very limited edition. Is it the Racing edition, as he wrote here:


 By: InHavenPro : September 3rd, 2022-03:13
appreciate your sentiments, yes, it is precisely one of the grand total of 224 'Racing' AMVOXlls - 100 black dial (mine), 100 black & white dial, and 24 for the Paris boutique (b&w dial but in a black PVD case, like the black dial that I have). Thanks for... 

Perfect match!

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:16


 By: InHavenPro : September 3rd, 2022-15:49

Stunning pictures and combos Filip!

Piece magnifique..!

 By: hans_jorgen_1968 : September 3rd, 2022-19:39


 By: InHavenPro : September 3rd, 2022-20:22
J'adore vraiment beaucoup ! Merci, Filip

Here are two I have out right now

 By: TeutonicCarFan : September 2nd, 2022-21:09
One I was wearing at work (rado), one for dinner (mb). They are also extremes in my collection for size and price - the rado at 37.3 mm/ steel, the mb at 43.5mm/WG. Rado is out of 150, the mb out of 58. ...  

Wow that is a low production number

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-22:59
58 is almost unheard of these days. I always see LEs in the hundreds in the major manufacturers. That Rado CC is a stealthy limited edition.

That quarter movement shot is such a tease! 😂

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:18

Ouff that Montblanc!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : September 3rd, 2022-11:58

Bronze …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 2nd, 2022-22:16
Something else that I have enjoy collecting, bronzes and the odd Patek, hope you like this one… ...  

Stunning picture Cap

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-23:00
Love the aquanaut and bronze statue too.

Awesome frame indeed!

 By: InHavenPro : September 3rd, 2022-04:43
I love bronze sculptures myself.... Cheers, Filip

Thank you 🙏

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 3rd, 2022-08:56

I didn't even notice the bronze at first

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:19
The lighting on the dial is perfect!

Thank you, he’s lurking in the background ! …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 3rd, 2022-08:49
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Quite the art collector dear Captain!

A great theme for this weekend!

 By: Sfwatchlover : September 2nd, 2022-22:34
Here are two watches I have that are limited edition models. The first is the Sinn U50 mother of pearl dial limited edition of 500. It is a perfect watch for swimming. The other is Lang and Heyne Hektor that I am wearing now. It is one of 99 and if you co...  

Ooo the L&H Hektor

 By: Cookies : September 2nd, 2022-23:01
That is a very beautiful watch, front, back and sides are equally stunning. Love the Sinn MOP dial too. That is very tropical, like a holiday in Hawaii.

Thanks a lot Cookies for the compliments!

 By: Sfwatchlover : September 3rd, 2022-07:29
Yeah, agree with you these are beautiful watches and I cannot stop looking at them . Take care!

Nice german theme!

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:27

Pure class that LH!

Hot off the presses!

My new-to-me LE Seiko Turtle “Sea Grapes” arrived this afternoon from Singapore, 3 days early via DHL! These days if FedEx could just manage to deliver on time I’d be very happy. Certainly will see a lot of wrist time over the long Labor Day weekend. Have...  

Very good design in this diver

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-00:26
Orange hand which is so legible. I like the curved case too. Love the day date function on it too. I actually don’t mind the assymetry of dials, as the function is very useful. The colour really resembles sea grapes on a cloudy day’s dive.

The hand is actually yellow as is the bezel

 By: Brandon Skinner : September 3rd, 2022-01:15
Here is the watch next to my Habring² with orange hand for comparison ...  

Haven’t seen that Habring before

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-01:18
This Habring is beautiful. Could you tell us more about it?

Awesome Seiko!

 By: InHavenPro : September 3rd, 2022-04:43
Likewise to you, cheers, Filip

Wow, I'm not a seiko guy but...

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:28
that combination is stunning!

Hiho Cookies

 By: S F : September 2nd, 2022-23:55
Joining with a couple. The BP is an off catalog Wempe ed. The Hektor somehow is just a run of 99 which can well be a regular run sports model offering. ...  

The Hektor shot is sublime

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-00:23
Dark, succulent and it highlights the motiff in the centre of the dial. That’s one rare BP too. I was too late to get a BP I always wanted. The aqualung big date. Prices are off the charts now for that piece.

Thks pal…on the Aqualung, cant explain whats driving the price movement.

Other than Putin, rare to see one on forums/social media.

Blancpain cases are to die for

If I am allowed a second entry, I thought this would be cool

 By: Boris : September 3rd, 2022-00:12
My trusted 16570 on tropic style strap, with a background of the first edition of the Rolang Garros yearly poster. This one was signed by the artist, Arroyo, number 145 of a series of 150. Sorry for the reflections, it's a bit difficult to get a good shot...  

The more the better

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-00:22
Roland Garros makes very nice posters. I am going to read more about his works tonight. Wow!!

Really nice poster

 By: whatmakesmetick (andrea) : September 3rd, 2022-08:30
And great strap for that Explorer!

I love the Rolex and poster combo …

 By: Cpt Scarlet : September 3rd, 2022-08:58
Very cool 👍

Let me respond to the Captain's call (your Patek collection really never ceases to amaze me! ;-)) with a couple of limited editions that I was lucky to acquire recently...and which I still MADLY love like on day one! :-))

 By: FabR : September 3rd, 2022-00:13
Perhaps interestingly, both watches are part of the same, new Calatrava reference 5177G featuring a hobnail bezel --- a choice that I find great looking and also historically significant for Patek. It's probably well known that my favorite watch EVER --- ...

Hello dear Fabr!! Your Patek Limited editions collection is just awesome!!

 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2022-00:43
Not easy to choose just one but I can well understand your love for the Boccadasse and the Fish School ones! Sublime pieces!! Keep loving and enjoying your unique collection so much!! Always a joy to view them! Hagwe! Abel

My big pleasure dear Fabr. I can feel your big love for these…

 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2022-15:58
… marvelous pieces and for the brand and it’s easy for me to understand that considering they are indeed true Masterpieces. I wish you’ll keep loving and enjoying them so much my dear friend. Best cordial regards Abel

Thank you!! Cheers!

Your Patek 'game' is top-notch. Great set of pictures, cheers, Filip

The Boccadasse dial is gorgeous!

Wow Fab ! .. I absolutely love any of the Rare Handcraft creations from Patek Philippe. Anyone who has had the pleasure to see and handle one can only be deeply impressed by the depth of quality and artistic creativity. Thank you for taking the time to jo... 

My sincere pleasure Captain, each Patek Rare Handcraft is indeed a truly special artwork --- for me, they simply represent the highest possible encounter between art and horology! :-)

 By: FabR : September 3rd, 2022-12:52
Being able to admire them in person is an experience that's impossible to describe with pictures! Cheers my friend.

Same to you my friend!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : September 3rd, 2022-16:25

Waaooaamhh !.. What a line-up, sublime, captivating and full of beauty !.. And although all of these are special, the Bocadasse & the Fish swarm are extra special !!

 By: hs111 : September 3rd, 2022-12:12
Continue to wear these treasures in the very Best of your health ! Chapeau, dear friend and thx for this exquisite share ! Best, hs.


 By: TeutonicCarFan : September 3rd, 2022-12:47
THIS is patek. Love your curated collection of art and watchmaking. I think you should add a 3070J as perpetual chrono is my other thought when I think PP and you have class enough for yellow gold to look cool.

Thanks a lot --- Rare Handcrafts are indeed highly representative of Patek Philippe's identity (thanks to the current president and honorary president of the company), and I am honored to be able to enjoy and take care of some of these marvels! :-)

 By: FabR : September 3rd, 2022-13:17
I confess that I never purchased a J gold NOR a second-hand watch....but who knows, one day I might decide to break the ice in one of these areas (more likely the first one.... ;-)) Certainly, the 3970J would be a terrific candidate, and yet again, a perf... 

Yes, 3970 😁👍

I am speechless, Dear Fabr!!!

 By: Speedie74 aka Mr. Torquise : September 4th, 2022-13:43
Some very, very spectacular pieces, I am in love of your Boccadasse "neighborhood-hometown" story! And your suits and shirts, all are very stylish!!! May I ask you, what kind of manufacturers are you wearing? Yours, Adam

Huge thanks Adam --- needless to say, all these pieces but the Boccadasse in particular completely stole my heart! :-)

 By: FabR : September 4th, 2022-15:34
The shirts I see in the pictures must be Isaia, Etro and Pal Zileri (in fact, of the 60 to 70 shirts I try to have in rotation at any given time, these are probably my most common choices along with Brioni.....if I had to pick one favorite, which is never...

The Apollo 17 Tribute to Gene Cernan, Limited to 272 watches is a seriously cool Speedmaster. I love it ! Beautiful selection of pens that you are sharing with us. I especially like the serpent pen. I hope you have a great weekend.

Thank you so much dear Captain for your kind comments !

 By: Subexplorer : September 3rd, 2022-15:32
And agree with you about the gold case Cernan Apollo 17 Tribute. I also think that this version still didn’t caught the attention from collectors it deserves considering its very low production, it’s beautiful dial and case back and being a full gold case...

I’m a big fan of Hemingway as writer so I felt fitting to get this special pen from MB honoring him. This is a much coveted model among collectors as it was the first in a long series of MB honoring different writers and was released in the early 1990’s. ...

 By: NT931 : September 3rd, 2022-08:34
The Habring2 X Timezone collaboration produced this 21 piece LE back in 2016. It has several charming features - a stepped bezel, sector dial, and blued hands - plus a jumping seconds complication. And it wears very well on the wrist too! One of my person...  

Oh this LE is gorgeous

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-08:41
I recalled reading of it. It has a nice sector dial. So much details on this special watch. Wish I were one of the blessed 21 owners of this grail.

Superb sector dial!

Hauntingly beautiful

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-11:21
Wow! This is a showstopper. 100 pieces only. Love it so much.


 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-12:12
Well said about LEs being hard to add to collections when they are sold out. I really like the Louis Erard x Vianny Halter, and Panerai Paneristi Forever Edition, but missed the boat on it. Nice Grand Seiko there. It was quite hard to get this piece.

Strong entries

😉 As I’m not really having other collectables, hope it’s still ok to just humbly share 2 watches, LE both, which I really like a lot, representing two completely different choices.. One of my absolute JLC favs, the Duomètre à Chronographe IMO, a watch for...  

Amazing DSD’s

Wow you have both of them. Love these rare birds.

... superb watch which I can say I share the pleasure of owning with you. Well played my friend! Have a nice weekend. Abel

Hello, my dear friend !.. Thx for your as always so kind comments !

 By: hs111 : September 4th, 2022-06:45
Yes, indeed we both - next to other watches- share the love to our DSAs ! Many kind regards and have a great Sunday !! Best, 🙂🙂

This week’s theme made me realize I’m not as much of a collector as I might have thought.

 By: Timeout : September 3rd, 2022-14:27
I have no limited editions of anything outside of watches - and even then only one LE watch. I’ve taken the liberty of expanding to “one offs” or limited production I’ve found along the way. Here’s a hand painted snuff bottle from Chonquing in China. I ca...  

Well written and masterfully played

 By: Cookies : September 3rd, 2022-15:27
Nice bottle art which must have been painstaking to make. The triptych is very intricate too. And the showstopper is the Moser Tourbillon 1/20. The magnum opus!

Many thanks.

 By: Timeout : September 4th, 2022-14:11
So many amazing LEs to admire this week - great choice of subject!

Many thanks hs.

I love your LE Duometre - what a watch - what a movement!!

LE’s have never been a critical criteria for me . . .

I think we have very similar taste in watches. Any chance your family had a background in the military? I think I like military pieces because I was made (or forced to) to look up to the men and women who serve the defence force, since young. Why do I say... 

Ha! You are very observant, my friend!

I served in the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Merchant Marine. In fact, I had my license to drive a ship before I had a license to drive a car! I’m a huge aviation buff as well. Unfortunately, the dream of becoming a pilot was curtailed by poor eyesight!😢 As you...

That is one stealth bomber. No one will recognise it from near or far…maybe only Yacomino or Nico or a highly trained falcon will know it is an Ed White from a regular Speedy. It has a beautiful movement and production process too. I’m eyeing a plain ol B...

The humble Oris Divers Sixty-Five, Topper Edition

One of 100 pieces made with a tweaks to the original Sixty-Five format--the most noticeable being the removal of the date. A watch with loads of faux-vintage charm and a pleasure to wear. ...  

Uber cool this Oris!

Nice use of props and charged lume on the Topper Edition of Diver 65. Juicy!

Thank you!

 By: R. Goodfellow : September 4th, 2022-00:20
Keeping that lume charged while trying to get a good shot was a challenge. Weak lume is the only shortcoming of this piece.

One of very few

No one will know….except the trained Eagle/Falcon or watch nerd. Ooo it is a simple Seiko diver. Oh yes I bought it from the local watch shop. Not (This is a Seiko which costs more than an Omega Aquaterra, but you’d never know…)

Haha too true…

 By: RabidManatee : September 4th, 2022-03:32
Even if the original issue price was half of what they’re going for now. I was lucky to get mine new from a Seiko boutique. BTW your collection is one I aspire to. Thank you!

I’m grateful buddy

Best wishes to you.

Oh this is really special

 By: Cookies : September 4th, 2022-05:36
A watch which tells the time in the counterclockwise direction. It is so unique. Great LE to post here. So interesting!

Thanks !

 By: Wachnut : September 4th, 2022-15:08
Thanks Cookies , yes it is quite interesting and always draws some curious glances once anyone has a closer look and realises that it’s not the “ wrong “ time followed by the light bulb moment of how it works 😄

Mindblowing, my mind was blown. I think you are the only one posting an AP and also a McGonigle this week. Those are royalty in this theme. And the cue sticks…DrNo will love them I believe.
