Here's a big ol' Crocker MHR blow-filler with #7 nib and a random pocketwatch. Not my best photo work, but I did it quickly.

Here's a interesting item for this topic; it's a Sheaffer-branded pocketwatch from Sheaffer's jewelry business, most likely from before Walter A. entered the pen business. The dial says 'Sheaffer Special'; the next post will have a picture of the movement with an identifying mark:

it's always interesting to see certain pairings... would love to see why ppl choose to pair a particular watch with a pen :)

 

Betty, you are too gracious... my work is far from perfect :) and maybe a wonderful vintage omega for u?

 

wspohn, i'm using a canon rig... with 2 speedlights and DIY softboxes :)

An attempt to impose a historical context on some things I've accumulated simply because I like them. It starts to break down in the 1950s, which means I now have no alternative but to buy a Parker 51, Rolex etc etc ... :rolleyes:

Some nice hardware! Richard S's El Primero, Lanatir's Coaxial Omega and Boston WIS' orange Samurai were particularly notable for me at least!

 

Not to mention the pens... :D

A pen a day keeps the doctor away...

Oops, just one more. (Looking at the calendar, it's time I used this watch more frequently.) :blink:

This is what matched best my Pulsar I guess, a Mont Blanc Boheme:

Nice match.

 

I am trying to think of what will go with my Pelikan - don't think I have any green faced watches...... :blink:

My wife saw me hauling out a tripod and asked what I was doing with the pens and watches.

 

She then asked me why I didn't take a picture of what she calls my 'lounge lizard' watch, a Cal. 500 black face Omega. She said anyone caught dead wearing that watch would probably have the Sheaffer Kings Gold in his pocket. I looked at the two of them and figured she was right. The unusual band on the watch is nicely echoed by the nig and surround design on the pen.

 

Tell me what you think (I actually used a bounce flash on this one which cures a lot of the usual highlight glare errors watches are prone to).
