The pens may be none too impressive, just Parker 75 Sterling Ciseles. The timepiece is perhaps more interesting, a silver pocket watch by Richard Colton of London, c.1705. It has condition problems, and is missing its outer case, but it possesses, IMHO, the finest pierced silver champleve dial I have ever seen (center piercing is backed by blued steel). I might guess that, judging from earlier entries here, kirchh and RichardS may get a bit of a tingle out of this one. I hope to improve the quality of the pen representation as I get further into collecting writing instruments. The watch is residue from an earlier and now receding wave of antique accumulation lust.

The pen is an Onoto BHR with broad nib from around 1910, I replaced the washer and cork seals about a month ago and have used it everyday since, my daily rotation is feeling a bit left out due to this pen.
The nib is georgous and writes extremely smoothly with just the right amount of flex, very good flow and a wet line, the shut off on these is a neat feature and works very well and it holds a huge amount of ink.
