Well, Jas has helped me get another off my list....the yellow mako.
Still on my list are these at the top of it.
A 35.5 mm 168.004 with the 561 movement.
A 34mm 168.010 with a 564 movement.
Both have a hidden crown. The trouble is finding one in good shape on a bracelet. I won’t buy another Omega with out a bracelet because they are too expensive and difficult to source. I want one in stainless and one in gold, doesn’t matter which one is gold to me.
Two sizes in this, I want the one that’s 39mm. I seem to be a day late on finding a good price on one, some people try selling them for way too much and they don’t want to come down on their price.
Glycine no.1 purist. These either go for a great deal at 350-600 or idiots trying to get 1200 and up. I seem to be a day late on all the good deals. I should have got it when they were clearing them out for 700. Still kicking myself.
This is my unicorn. Not that expensive, yet impossible to find in blue.
There is one at penopoly.com for sale, but I’ve never heard of penopoly and can’t find any reviews on them.
Of course I will continue to seek out small divers like hked’s, a smaller version of the blue puck that Halios said they would make three years ago, but haven’t and various vintage 24hour watches and micro rotors that are priced well.
Also glancing around for the right Mondaine or perhaps an automatic xemex, I like the look of a simple dial with the red. Looking for the right Zodiac.
Any vintage Chinese textured animal dials with the 7120
and that Russian vintage Rodina. Here is one, but with a reproduction dial, I want the original.
I would love to find a Radiomir homage with the hash mark dial instead of numerals in a 40mm or below. It seems a shame to buy one with the numeral dial just to switch it for a hash mark dial though because if I ever found one it would probably be a pretty penny just to tear up and mod. That may be a someday project though.
I know My collection isn’t high end or concentrated in one area, but I’m where I am at and I’m happy plugging along. I love this hobby and I love watches.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
