This has to be the longest thread I've ever seen, on any forum, anywhere.
Absolutely stunning photos of great watches and pens; kept clicking and thinking I'd never get to the end.
I could look at these shots all day!

Nice Ball! Here's one of mine.

There are fewer things more beautiful in the world of mechanics than the movements of pocket watches. A beautiful example, Lak611. I'm too lazy to look up the serial-number charts - how old is that Ball?

Thanks for the compliment.
Nice Ball pocket watch too!
I love old pocket watches and that Ball lever-set you have is sweeeeeeet!

Here's another shot of my Ball Moon Phase watch, taken with a Levenger Plumpster sitting on the custom VS strap
The stationery they're on I'd made and printed out myself...


“I view my fountain pens & inks as an artist might view their brushes and paints.
They flow across paper as a brush to canvas, transforming my thoughts into words and my words into art.
There is nothing else like it; the art of writing and the painting of words!”

It is 105 years old. From 1904, first run of grade 333; only produced for 2 years. 1436 of 4000 in grade.

My lovely 1959 Connie Pie-Pan, which is my daily user, and my 1992 Duofold Godron.
Vintage and (fairly) modern goes well together, right? Although I don't use the Duofold much as I hesitate to bring it around.
Thanks for looking!

I like your Barlow, Peter. Years ago I had one quite similar, but not as pretty as the ivory/cream color of yours.

Tah-daaaaaaaaah!!!



The whistle is a replica metropolitan police whistle.

The pen is a 1920s Wahl-Eversharp art deco lever-filler. Gold-filled barrel & cap.

The watch is a Waltham M1908 made in 1926.

The watch isn't currently working. It's too gummed up. I'm gonna send it to my watchmaker to sort out.

That is one of my favourite watches - the ceramic bezel works so well with the raw ebonite finish of the Dani
