    Anyone order watches from a online authorized distributor that keeps warranty?

    I don’t mind buying direct, but gotta check my options..

    Beautiful piece Tommy. That watch is worth more than my wife's SUV.

    #1708 4 months ago

    I like to buy watches that don't work at garage sales, put a new battery in them and see if they work...

    Is Jauce reliable? The prices seem great!

    I just preordered the Christopher Ward C1 Moonglow:

    Love watches but not into high end ones, rather buy a pinball.

    Picked this one up for 200 on eBay it was like brand new with tags and originally retailed for 895 so very happy

    I bought two other ones that had to be returned before I finally got one that matched the description. Buying watches can be extremely annoying on there. Third time is a charm.

    Amazing watch for the price it's accuracy is unparralled

    The one that started the whole thread...the Speedmaster Professional. This week marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. Tuesday was the launch and tomorrow was the landing. Geez...50 years and we haven't been back...crazy.

    I’ve had this for a couple months, been meaning to post pics of it. Citizen BLS Chronograph 67-9551 from 1973. I got for work/travel.

    My Christopher Ward C1 Moonglow has arrived! Not a watch for everyone but I really like it (thanks Bitcoin).

    It tracks the moon phase in real-time. Accuracy is within 24hrs every 128 years (if the watch were kept wound). I even love the outer date wheel which is even more visible at night...very cool.

    The first moon landing as you know was in 1969. There were a handful of lunar landing missions after that with the last one being in 1972. At any rate, I agree with you that it has been a long time since we sent someone to the moon.

    I'm not a watch collector, but I have owned and worn this skeleton watch for the past 30 years. I have no real knowledge of brand or anything, but was always facinated by the mechanisms within it. It has always been reliable and kept good time (except when forgetting to wind it ).

    It was gifted to me by my older sister, she brought it back with her from the UK where she was working as a nanny.

    I like that watch. Different, classy, certainly helpful to fisherman so they can track High Tide on their wrist (I think).

    Where did you purchase it that accepted Bitcoin?

    Quoted from Jgel:

    I understood it as he made earnings from Bitcoin, and used his investment profit to purchase.

    I could be wrong.

    You got it. Bought some at 4 and it went to 12 so I sold a little and bought the watch.

    Newest Acquisition: Certina DS PH200M

    I really like the look on this one. It's also a really nice "bang for your buck" automatic diver and I have a thing for divers. 80hr power reserve is also a fun feature. This one is a reissue of their 1967 diver of the same name (and look). Some people don't like that it has a hesalite crystal vs sapphire...but honestly, I LOVE the look it gives this watch. It measures 43.5mm but I think it actually wears a little smaller. Probably can't tell in the posted picture but it does fit my 6.5" wrist. Came in a very nice hardshell case and included two straps...the one pictures (tan suede leather) and a striped black Nato. Overall I'm extremely impressed with the total package for the price.

    I'm a fan of hesalite crystals; they give a watch a nice vintage look.
    Love the leather strap Did you buy direct?

    Picked this up for the wife’s 10yr anniversary present!

    Photos don’t do the meteorite justice, really special dial. She is affectionately referring to it as her ‘space watch’!

    Why WW?

    #1735 43 days ago

    It's the only pin I have and I'm very new to this scene. Picked it up a few weeks ago, loving it so far. Hit my first 3 way combo shot yesterday.

    #1736 43 days ago

    Welcome to Pinside misterman ! Great watch BTW! New to the pinball scene, only one pin... that will change! You can't have just one!

    I find myself scanning the classifieds here and elsewhere a lot in my free time lately. Almost got a whitewater locally but it was gone too soon.

    #1738 40 days ago

    Whitewater is good. Finding the pin is half the fun. Unfortunately, I always had to drive long distance or ship my pins. Never found much locally.

    Got the call and picked this up today

    Very nice, a Sea-Dweller may be my next.

    #1742 36 days ago

    Thanks! It’s like a super sub, yet still very comfortable to wear like a sub but in 43mm size. Shown here side by side for reference, and makes the Daytona look even smaller lol.

    Congrats! Love the pop of red font on those and agree that while it is considered big for a Rolex, really just average size compared to most modern watches these days. Must have a good relationship with your AD. Wear it in good health!!!

    #1744 36 days ago

    You guys have some nice looking watches.

    These are my only others. I'm thinking about buying a Samsung Galaxy Active 2 44mm.

    Thanks. I do have a very cool local AD, and also go hunting for them when on travel

    Heres my Explorer 2 Polar shown on board the Disney Fantasy, a lucky souvenir from one of our ports.
