Let's see your watch and fountain pen photos



Recommended Posts

Blue Saturday. Thatʻs some kind of cheap Seiko V743 Asia-market watch thatʻs really kind of peculiar. It is a small 35mm in diameter, screw down crown so waterproof, yet contrary to diver watch convention (and kinda delicate and rare in itself) a domed glass crystal. I put it on a blue NATO strap with black furniture. Next to it, my favorite blue M605 Pelikan loaded with Platinum Pigment Blue ink. If you notice even the date "SAT" is in blue!

Nice pen and watch combo.

Change is not mandatory, Survival is not required.

This couple match very well... Although they perform flawlessly I can't get myself to love them, so they get used far less than any other watch or pen...

A Cd'A Genève with a Lord Elgin Aquamaster.

 

 

 

 

 

You seem to have a liking and good selection of Lord Elgin... I love their tank and art deco watches from the 30s.

 

The Aquamaster you have there was maybe one of their last models before closing?

Yes. It is from the Swiss Movement period and tritium marking on the dials, but still one I enjoy. It was the first "Nice Watch" I bought for myself.

 

AbE:

 

There's an interesting pattern with the watches. My paternal grandfather liked Sheaffer pens and Hamilton watches. Dad liked Parker pens and Elgin watches. I'm lucky enough to have a few from each.

@Jar - your last post #956 shows a wonderfully elegant combination. Both have considerable style and class compared to some of the baubles flashed around these days :)

A 1943 Lord Elgin and 40s Montblanc 234½.

 

 

Very, very nice. The Lord Elgins in tank/art deco shape are among my most favorite watches, vintage or not.

This is my only tank. Longines Art Deco from 1938 with flexible lugs, on a CS Churchill. This is the watch that I use when I attend white tie events.

Neat, a "Driver's watch". The swivel links were meant to allow the watch to be worn on the side of your wrist instead of the top while driving so you could check the time without taking your hands off the steering wheel.

Love those tank watches.

Is that a 22 or 24 Montblanc?
