Fifty fathoms is class.
Lovely watch and digging the domed glass.
Only got it this week. Makes the finishing on my Rolex look very 'industrial'
My latest addition, a Bell & Ross BR 03-93 GMT

Nice. I've fancied getting one for a while, but I'm a bit concerned about the watch to wrist ratio being a bit off.
My dream watch. Closest to a George Daniels I’ll ever get !
Beautiful watch, congrats
Any chance of some wrist shots please?
It's a big watch (42mm) but not too big if that makes sense, however the BR 01 at 46mm is too big for me.
Will try and remember to grab some when next on.
I love the Blancpain FF. Everything about it is perfect IMO.
M&S £25. Thousands of years ago my mother bought me an Omega for my 21st. Still got it but the time keeping is rubbish compared with my M&S chronometer.
I'd be very surprised if it's a chronometer if it cost £25. The certification for that would mean such a price would make them lose money, I'd suggest.
Hast the Omega had a service recently in its thousands of years of use? Lousy time keeping usually easily remedied.
Just preordered/backed a Hamtun titanium H2 on Kickstarter.
Not sure if I want to pay the extra for a sellita movement too...
Picked up this UG the other month and it has just got back from being serviced.
It is a Italian railway conductors watch, UG were commissioned to make them back in the late 60's. It's such a cool watch from an iconic brand for not too much money.
Strangely enough so did I, didn't commit for the Sellita either yet.
I really want them to build the blue one, I'll go for the white if that doesn't happen though.
The blue has been confirmed according to comments on the Kickstarter page
I was looking at the same ones lol either white or blue.
I'd like the ratcheting clasp and maybe the additional 12hr bezel as well.
There's been some discussion of possibly slightly thinner cases for the sellitas and display backs too.
I think if there's a chance to slim the case down, even by fractions of a mm, I may upgrade
I think it's just a poll for the blue, along with a couple of other colours, could be wrong with that though
I think the poll will be for additional colours.
Nick posted saying blue was confirmed.
[Edit] I've just upgraded to the sellita based on the most recent comment from Ross. He says he's definitely looking into a slightly slimmer csse.
My everyday watch isn't that unique, but it's a beautiful watch to wear. The Moonwatch is timeless.
I also have a TAG Autavia Heritage, but I rarely wear it. On my next trip to Italy i am considering a Panerai Marina
