Default Re: Wristwatch collectors out there?

For anyone that is in the market for a watch winder, I found an awesome deal on a wolf Heritage 6 watch winder. It's an older model but brand new on overstock.com. They are having an anniversary sale with 25% off and there is a coupon you can activate for an additional $50 off. Retails for about $2,500, listed for $983, $737 after 25% off, and a final cost of $687 after the $50 off coupon. $687 for what usually goes for $1,000-$1,200 on Amazon and other places.

https://www.overstock.com/coupons, click on $50 off order of $600 to activate

Enjoy!!

http://www.buywatchwinders.com/watch...ories-c-9.html

The square pillow design is not a bad one. I know it's not what you want, but it may be cheaper and it would provide a slimmer profile. I don't think it would cost much at all do have done by someone who makes cornhole bags or the like.
I got the Wolf 456002 Watch Winder from Amazon about a year ago, and it's been great so far. Super quiet and looks very stylish. It's a bit on the pricier side but totally worth it. Here's the Amazon link and a good review for people who wants more info.

Good luck!

I just have a Apple Watch but my mom and grandma both have Rolex’s. My uncle has about 10 in a safe that he never wears. My mom has a Tag too but never really wore it after my dad got her the Rolex for their 10th wedding anniversary in like 2004.

These are my two latest. Seems I just discovered Orient watches and I love them; 21,600 bps, hacking and hand winding in-house movements. Sorry I haven't had the chance to photograph my actual pieces. I think I got the last Maestro available online. You can't tell from the pictures but the hands and markers are a deep cobalt blue. I took the bracelet off of it and put on a vintage style coffee brown leather strap. Actual photos to come.


Orient Maestro


Orient Ray II

How are you enjoying the MontBlanc, Julian? I've had one of their XXL GMT Chronos for a around 15 years now and always liked it.

And good call on the Orient, Darren. For the money, they are hard to beat. I've been wearing one of theirs with a blue dial as my pool/vacation watch for a few years. It's by far the best value watch I own and I've recommended them to a lot of folks.

Not sure who makes the MontBlanc, but as a part of Richemont, there are plenty of good shops who can produce a nice watch.

Does MontBlanc have a dedicated manufacture for watches or just a run from one of their other factories?

I was just reading that it's an in-house movement; pretty impressive. Here's a link: https://www.watch-wiki.net/index.php?title=MB_R200

Didnít get it... couldnít find it locally and have been too busy to travel to see it. While I love the unique face layout I started to think I might prefer something more classic. I was also reading mixed opinions about the quality of Montblanc. Another strong contender was this: https://www.glashuette-original.com/...90-02-42-32-05 ... But Iím now leaning towards this Nardin: https://monochrome-watches.com/intro...r-specs-price/
