@watchingbaseball— Omega Speedmaster MK40
“I have always admired Omegas, as my introduction to mechanical watches started with my Dad’s Seamaster. I knew that one day I wanted to add a Speedmaster to my collection, and since my taste in watches leans towards those with color, this MK40 was a perfect fit for my first Omega.”
@bwongvivant — Lemania Monopusher RAF
“These Lemania monopusher chronographs have captivated me for a long time. The elegant simplicity and balanced dial of this white version belie the frontline life it led as a military issued watch. This “Series 2” version exhibits the British government issue pheon/broad arrow, circle T indicating tritium lume (as opposed to the hazardous radium used previously), and fixed bars for use only with NATO style straps.
“Many of these Lemanias were issued to the Royal Navy for use on surface ships and submarines but the case back markings of this particular example indicate it was issued to the Air Ministry (RAF) in 1953. I sought out the RAF version specifically since I am a pilot myself and, staring into the slightly weathered dial, I can almost smell the cockpits of the Hawker Hunter jets or Avro Vulcans it might have logged time in. One of the beauties of a white dialed watch is that you can’t really take a bad picture of it since reflections aren’t an issue.”
@watchfiend — Rolex Explorer
“I’ve always admired the 36 mm Explorer due to its no-nonsense design, versatility, and history. But it wasn’t until I tried it on that I knew I had to have it. It’s just so comfortable and under-the-radar. It’s also the perfect go anywhere, do anything watch; I wear it more than any other piece in my collection. I took this shot because the Explorer is the best tree-hand watch of all time. Wouldn’t you agree?”
@imwatchcollector — vintage Seiko 6139-7060 chronograph
“The Seiko 6139-7060 is ` marvelous vintage chronograph with a legendary movement. The caliber came out in 1969 as one of the world’s first self-winding chronograph movements, and obviously the first non-Swiss. This watch, the 6139-7060 with its large steel case, dark dial, and colorful accents represents the quintessential ’70s sports chronograph.”
