@travelhomedad — Omega Speedmaster Ultraman
“As a kid, I’d always been fascinated by the Ultraman series. In the early 90s, Ultraman Ace and Ultraman Jack Character episodes were frequent characters on television while living in Hong Kong. To be able to collect this piece just makes me want to find the 145.012-67 as well, one Ultraman leads to another… The adventure begins now.”
@nuewatchguy — A.Lange & Söhne Datograph
“The Datograph is a modern watchmaking icon. After its release back in 1999 it basically put the manual wind, in-house chronograph movement back on the map of the big high horology manufacturers. And when compared to the competitions’ newer releases the L951.1 is still a beauty to behold thanks to its city-like architecture. Famously Philippe Dufour acknowledges it once as the best serially produced wristwatch available thanks to its movement. Strapping on my first-generation Dato always feels like putting a piece of watchmaking history on my wrist.”
@24horiginal — vintage Seiko 6139 Helmet
“As you may know, the 6139 movement is an iconic one, one of the first automatic chronographs ever released. This specific watch, nicknamed the Seiko Helmet for its odd case shape, is from 1978, one of the last production batches of the 6139 series that lasted from 1969 to 1979. I was able to source this watch from a watch shop that specializes in vintage Seiko chronographs. It is all original, except for a replacement crystal, and the case remains unpolished.
Regarding the shot, I wanted to try a flat lay type of photo, keeping it simple. I tried to mix the old (watch and camera lighter) with the new (nato strap and Kindle). The yellow color background is supposed to complement the compass on the lighter. Most importantly, the highlight of the pic is an iconic chronograph watch that takes us back to 1969, a historic year in watchmaking.”
@katlen.watches.life — Oris Aquis
“I had been eyeing this Aquis for some time and it represents a new time in life. I picked it up right as our quarantine lifted here in Nashville after spending some time checking it out for review. Honestly, it was love at first sight with this mint dial regardless of how hard I tried to resist. As life goes back to our new normal and my schedule gets more and more hectic, I find myself missing the lazy mornings spent sitting around in my garden, relaxing with coffee and watch news. This shot reminds me to slow down a bit and enjoy the beauty of nature any way I can, even on a gloomy and rainy Nashville morning.”
