  3. A bit pricey at £6,000 (incl VAT) but definitely an interesting clock for the car enthusiast! From Loupe magazine: Introducing a series of unique and highly collectable Christopher Ward desk clocks, made with V16 engine parts from a classic BRM racing car and powered by SH21. The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in Hampshire has specially commissioned a run of just 14 Christopher Ward desk clocks. Each is made from a piston rod salvaged by TMB ArtMetal from a 1950 BRM Formula One car, and is powered by CW’s manual-wound in-house Calibre SH21, with its five-day power reserve. Once driven by Juan Manuel Fangio and Reg Parnell, these post-war BRMs had extremely powerful and well-engineered – but intimidatingly complex – supercharged V16 engines, basically two tiny 750cc V8s placed back-to-back. “The dial design faithfully replicates the BRM’s oil pressure gauge,” says Adrian Buchmann, CW’s head of product design, “while each piston is set on a brass and polished hardwood base and fitted to its connecting rod by a specially-made brass gudgeon pin. As each connecting rod is numbered from its original manufacture, it creates a unique keepsake.” The clocks are available from the National Motor Museum, and cost £6,000 each. Currently around half of them are reserved, so be quick! More info here: https://www.beaulieu.co.uk/news/launch-of-unique-timepieces-created-from-iconic-brm-pistons/

  8. I don't have too many pictures of my SARW015 but here are a few. Cool watch with interesting dial and complications.
  9. I visited Japan a few months ago and watch shopping was on my list of things to do, of course. There are a few department store chains that have all kinds of electronic goods in addition to watches. BIC Camera was my favorite as they have a very good selection with good prices. There weren't really any real bargains but prices were lower than you would find in the USA. And as a foreign visitor, you can buy tax-free so that saves money as well. But the main draw was the very large selection of watches you often only see online. Seiko was no exception and it was just fun to browse and look at all the different models I had never seen in the metal before. 100 Yen is USD 0.94 / GBP 0,75. A quick way to convert for US shoppers is to remove 2 decimals at the end from the Yen price and subtract 10%. For example, 70 000 yen is 700 - 10% = US$ 630 (Real conversion is $655). Most of these pictures were taken at BIC Camera in Tokyo and Osaka, and show the tax-free prices. The first 2 pictures are at Yodobashi Camera in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
  10. The limited edition blue Alpinist SPB089 is still selling for crazy money at $900 (£730) and up here in the US. So the good news is the new Alpinist will be a lot more affordable than these LEs.
  11. It's the SARW019 and I think these models are discontinued. The black dial I still have is the SARW015.
