    Watch strap and bracelet storage

    I had my straps in several boxes and containers and finally got some better storage for them. These are basic plastic stackable jewelry trays that can hold a good number of straps. They are not very high but that's a good thing so you won't keep stacking many straps on top of each other. After I got things organized, I realized I had more straps than I thought and found some I didn't even know I had. I have to get another set of three for some more straps and bracelets. Possibly for some watches and tools, spring bars and other small things as well. These are 1" height and are $18 for 3 trays so not expensive. They also come in 1.5" and 2" height and you can get soft liners and compartment inserts as well. Find it here on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ClOlER
  2. Bold and legible in both its steel or diamond-like carbon (DLC) case configurations, the C8 Flyer Automatic is a strong entry point into the world of Christopher Ward's mechanical aviation watches. £595 Description Introducing a Sellita SW200-1 movement to our aviation range, the C8 Flyer Automatic shares the same case and aesthetic as pieces like the C8 Power Reserve and UTC Worldtimer, without any sacrifice made in the attention to detail and design. Inspired by the Spitfire's dashboard clock, legibility is key. Gunmetal indexes, hands and double-sized numerals are filled with SuperLuminova, contrasting strongly against the Automatic's matte black dial; its baton markers have also been cut away, with depth provided elsewhere by a sloped and fully tracked outer minuterie ring. Anti-reflective sapphire crystal ensures minimal reflections in all conditions. The Automatic's 44mm case references the larger sizes worn by fighter pilots - for example, the enlarged crown is a nod to those who had to operate theirs whilst wearing thick flying gloves. On the reverse, the backplate has been deep-stamped with an image of the Farnborough wind tunnels, used to develop icons of British aviation including the Spitfire and the Concorde. British by design and British by nature - this is a watch that isn't afraid to declare its roots in a heroic period of the RAF's history - the C8 Flyer Automatic's precision is assured by its robust Swiss-made movement. Available with a diamond-like carbon (DLC) or brushed and polished steel case, which one will you choose? Movement With 26 jewels and an anti-shock system (necessary for ensuring smooth timekeeping throughout everyday use), the Sellita SW200-1 is an industry-revered movement. Dependable and accurate, it features a self-winding mechanism and a 38 hour power reserve, while a date wheel sits at 3 o'clock. Boasting a classic frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (that's eight ticks a second), the SW200-1 powers the C8 Flyer Automatic with supreme precision. Technical Diameter: 44mm Height: 12.05mm Weight: 96g Calibre: Sellita SW200-1 Case: 316L stainless steel Water resistance: 5 ATM (50 metres) Timing tolerance: +20/-20 seconds/day Dial colour: Black Lume: T-C1 SuperLuminova Strap width: 22mm Strap colour: Camel Lug to lug: 53.2mm Features Swiss made 26 jewel self-winding mechanical movement Brushed and polished stainless steel case Multi-layered dial with lume-dipped hands Deep-stamped screw-down backplate Push-down crown with serrated teeth and deep-stamped wind turbine motif Anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal Date window with black disc White SuperLuminova numerals and indexes Unique engraved serial number Vintage finish Tiber leather strap with hand-sewn whip stitch

  5. A good price for the Kontiki on bracelet that is difficult to find these days. $850 is not the lowest it has ever been but still a great price. The bracelet and clasps on these are very nice as well. Get one while you can..! Item is in stock at Gemnation and ready to ship. https://www.gemnation.com/watches/Eterna-KonTiki-1220.41.43.0268-37775.html
  6. A thread with the current promotions of Rakuten Global Market and cash back through Ebates. https://global.rakuten.com https://www.ebates.com/globalrakuten.com Their current cashback is 16% and they occasionally go up to 20%. For example, you can get the Seiko SBDC053 for $622 - 16% = $522. https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/watch-shop/item/s-p-0060/
  7. A good deal on these chronographs with Precidrive (high accuracy quartz) movement. $225 for the SS case and $258 for the PVD. https://www.ashford.com/us/watches/certina/ds-2/ds-2-chronograph/C024-447-17-051-02.pid https://www.ashford.com/us/watches/certina/ds-2/ds-2-chronograph/C024-447-17-051-22.pid
  8. Many different models for some good prices. https://www.touchofmodern.com/sales/eterna-3c050746-6b55-4624-8ca1-1cd50c9117bb Tangaroa on bracelet $500 - On leather strap $400 1848 Legacy - $600 Kontiki 4-hands - 44mm for $1500 - Not a great deal but a model that you don't see for sale very often.
  9. It is available again for $338. Stunning watch, the other watches in my collection are getting jealous.. They also have a blue dial with rose gold-tone. While I am not into gold on my watches, this version seems tasteful and is tempting for $372 - other discounts mentioned before. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/citizen-mens-automatic-grand-classic-eco-drive-two-tone-stainless-steel-bracelet-watch-42mm-nb0046-51l?ID=938996
  10. Also available in white dial for the same price. https://www.jomashop.com/tissot-watch-t101-408-11-031-00.html
  11. Great size at 39mm and I think this is the lowest priced Swiss made automatic chronometer I have seen. MSRP is $995. https://www.jomashop.com/tissot-watch-t101-408-11-051-00.html T101.408.11.051.00 EXTRA $20 OFF W/ CODE "HDTT20" - TOTAL: $279 These have the Tissot Calibre Powermatic 80 movement. More information: https://watch-insider.com/news/tissot-powermatic-80-automatic-caliber-ushering-era-ultra-precise-low-cost-mechanical-movements/ There also is a quartz version available at $199: https://www.jomashop.com/tissot-watch-t1014511105100.html
