Let's see your watch and fountain pen photos



Recommended Posts

Here's my Seiko Monster with my Vanishing Point - both very affordable but very reliable tools, in my opinion. I got the Seiko for Christmas this year, and I never go a day without it.

Was just browsing by, and couldn't resist chiming in. Sorry about the poor pic quality, a scan as opposed to a well-lighted photo.

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. ;)

Nihontochicken, that Colton is giving me more than a tingle. What a beaut! Any chance of a larger, but tighter crop on the dial?

 

TIA

Sorry, I have no digital camera that will perform macro, and the scanner won't cut it. I once had a digitized photo somehow, but it has vanished into the ether. Will try to see what I can do, but you'll have to take my word for it right now, trust me. Hahahaha! Once you see late 17th to early 18th century Brit pocket watches with silver champleve dials, well, they kinda ruin you for most anything later. Same might be said for that period brass dial long case clocks, IMO. However, like Japanese swords, decent pieces start at multi-kilobucks a throw, which is one reason why I've gotten into Georgian sterling flatware and vintage pens. ;)

Not much of a watch person, but I'll play. The pen is a specially made "nightingale". I like the nightingale, but the colors are... well, feminine. So, I have these made for a customer who wants a manly color, and this one is call the Hanava Brown...

This watch go's everywhere with me and it is very robust, it has survived a huge wipeout on a downhill mtb track and feels very much at home under water.

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.

With a new strap for my Aqua Terra and a new Visconti Pericle 2001 I got the other day, I had to add a new photo to this thread. ;)

I haven't taken any good pictures of pens together with watches (don't really have any decent pens yet), but here's a picture I took of my favourite timepiece. I just wish I'd been more attentive to dust on it. :rolleyes:
