  1. A recent video shows Bill Gate is still wearing the same Casio MDV106 Duro quartz watch he has been wearing for many years. A reliable and still stylish timepiece is all you need when you're not into displaying wealth and are not a horology fanatic. Even when you're the second richest person in the world. The Casio MDV106 has been a favorite of many budget -conscious watch fans and even luxury watch owners respect this capable and very affordable dive watch. It can be found on Amazon fro about $45 on a rubber strap. The video capture shows Mr. Gates is still wearing it on that same rubber strap. https://www.casio.com/products/watches/sports/mdv106-1a
  2. I have had this KonTiki for several years and now it is time to find a new owner. I am trying to reduce my collection and a few have to go to fund a grail watch. This is one of the nicest watches in my modest collection but I just don't wear it enough to justify keeping it. The KonTiki with blue dial on bracelet is becoming more rare these days. As mentioned, it wasn't worn very much and is still in excellent shape. The case, crystal and bezel are flawless. The caseback shows a few small mark and they don't even show up in pictures. The bracelet is in excellent shape as well with the exception of some smaller scratches on the clasp and back part of the bracelet where it came in contact with a desk at work. The bracelet itself is the nicest I have seen on a watch and I have read it can easily compare to luxury watches like Omega. The same goes for the watch head itself and it is a bit disappointing Eterna is not well known like many other brands. The bracelet is currently sized to a 7.5" wrist and extra links are included. It looks like it will fit up to an 8" wrist. The pictures shows what is included in this sale: Eterna KonTiki on bracelet Box with presentation stand Owners Manual Hang tag Extra bracelet links Cleaning cloth About me I am a watch enthusiast and enjoy trying out new watches. To keep the collection to a reasonable size, some of the watches have to find new owners who can enjoy them more than I do. Most of my watches get minimal wear and are often in excellent condition. While I unfortunately can not accept regular returns, I guarantee the watch condition will be as described and I will be happy to accept returns if it is not. I can not accept returns if you just don't like the watch, too big/small and other personal reasons. Why would you buy from me if you don't know me?

    Christopher Ward Watch Archive

    Discontinued models disappear from the the CW website so I started archiving pictures and details of some popular models for research and enjoyment. This may be especially helpful when you are selling or looking to buy older models and just want to get the manufacturer information and pictures. I added 28 current and discontinued models so far and it will be in work in progress. Ijust like to document and archive things that otherwise disappear in the internet abyss and never to be seen again. Archive for Christopher Ward watches: http://horology.world/archive/ Please post in this thread if you have any suggestions for improvements or things that should be done different.

    Welcome to Horology World

    Welcome to the World of Horology! Horology World is a new community site for horology enthusiasts that wants to do things differently. The goal is to combine the ease of posting and community feel of social media sites like Facebook and combine it with the functionality of advanced content software. There are enough forums already and HW doesn't want to be just another forum. The site: owned and run by enthusiasts and not some large company whose only goals is making money. HW is not trying to compete with any forum or social media site. The goal is to provide a new experience, make content easier to share and combine the best of forums and social media. We listen and are looking for input from members. Horology may sound a bit stuffy and is often used together with expensive and high-end mechanical watches. But originally, horology applies to any timekeeping device and the science of measuring time. So anything from an inexpensive mechanical watch to an atomic clock is welcome here. Gallery: Share images of your timepieces by uploading to the site. No third party image sharing sites needed. Search and browse for the images you're looking for. Collections and Reviews: Many of us are passionate about watches and want to share more information with others. This is the place to write a review or just keep track of watches you have in your collection. Marketplace: Browsing to see what's for sale should be fun and easy. And posting a watch for sale should be easy as well. You can take pictures with your smart phone, create a new ad, upload the pictures, provide details of what you're selling and you're done in a few minutes. Browse to see what's for sale or was sold in the past is easy by using the filter. Clubs: This section has similar functionality to Facebook groups or subreddits. Any member can start a new club which is a dedicated place for discussions and sharing images. Think of clubs for a certain watch brand or a specific genre (dive watches, pilot watches, British watches, mechanical clocks and so on). Forum: Many enthusiasts have their favorite forums or social media groups where they want to discuss their passion and hobby. HW is not trying to compete with any of these sites. And there are only a few sub forums as we think the Clubs will have more flexibility. Mobile devices and desktop: The site works great on any size screen, from 30" computer display, a tablet and a smart phone. No need to use Tapatalk and seeing ads everywhere. Social media integration: Many people already have a Facebook, Twitter or Google+ account. You can use that account to register with our site and become a member. You don't have to remember yet another login name and password. You can login to the site on any device when you're logged in to that social media account you're registered with. Moderation: Nobody likes to be told what to do and not to do. But there must be a few basic rules to create a friendly community. Just be nice to each other, respect opinions from other enthusiasts and keep it family friendly. That's the terms of service in a nutshell. Be yourself, we encourage to use your real name (first name only if you prefer) and a picture of yourself. As on social media, many people prefer to deal with other real people instead of some unusual user name and avatar.
