    I cannot compete with your fine collections. I have a magic wrist wart that magically destroys watches. Had about ten since I was twenty and they all stopped working within a few months, even the classy one my Dad gave me for my 21st which was replaced by the manufacturer three times. So I now live in a time of my own.

      I had a Seiko divers watch that told the time at 200 metres, although I only ever really needed it at 5.
      Now that I've given up watches for mobile phones I haven't a clue what time it is underwater and am frequently late for appointments with fish.

        I love watches...... and currently functioning are the following:

        My grandfather's watch he wore while navigating Lancaster bombers in WW2. This pic is not quite the same as mine, but almost:

        And my everyday watch:

          I'm saving up for one of these - if I just stopped buying records it might end up around my wrist sooner rather than later



          Silliest watch I saw at Tokyo Airport - and was so bored and jetlagged I nearly bought - was this one:

            I have a similar problem to ETK, but I've been thinking of investing in a time piece and seeing if the curse has lifted in late middle age. Any recommendations? What's a cool watch for a jazz loving man of 'distinguished' aspect?

              There in only one, A Borel Cocktail watch. I own about eight of them. It also has a see-through back.

                I beg to differ - I'd go for the 'Jazz' watch:

                  Does it go incredibly fast?

                        Not sure but it's very spiritual.

                        Actually an unexpected fan, Zappa said - "I think anybody who can play that fast is just wonderful."

                            I got into a conversation with the owner of Haggle once and he told me he wanted to stop selling records as he hated them and instead get into selling watches. He then brought out a selection of very nice 1920s watches which, although not working, we admired for about 15 minutes. I must admit I was slightly hoping he'd drop the exorbitant price of the record I wanted to buy but unfortunatley no amount of watch-flattery worked!
                            "Record collecting is no mere hobby, no innocuous leisurely diversion. It is a feverish passion bordering on dementia, driving those under the influence to irrational, compulsive, fanatical extremes."

                              I've got a really nice memosail that you might like. Quite a rare little thing, yachting watch from the 70s but cool. Mine needs an overhaul, I bought it knowing it needed work but I have a man who can....

                              can't upload images but here's a link

                              My wife bought the dieter rams digital reissue for our anniversary - it's real purdy

                              I've also got a bit of a thing for swatch watches and think I have about 12 dating back to the very first black and white jobbies and the once ubiquitous see through fella.

                              Next year I shall have a Panerai, i shall, i shall, i shall.
