Watches are one of the only acceptable men's jewelry unless you are a pimp or rapper of course... :)


+10... It's fun to collect watches and look at your collection at the same time.

Speaking of watches, I just picked up a sweet vintage Titoni Airmaster via eBay:

Nice watch. Wear it in good health. BTW, does the dial still glow green in the dark? Curious if the trillium in the dial has reached its half life.

Very nice watch! Can you get new tritium or have it re-lumed or no?? (Fast, we're going to turn this into a watch forum now haha)

The lume is insane for how old it is- I haven't worn it enough to see if it lasts a long time, but it is still bright. The hands, not so much.

You can certainly get dials/etc re-lumed, but I'm going to keep it as is. On the downside, the crystal popped off today, so I'm going to get some epoxy glue or similar tonight to seal it.

I suppose you get what you pay for sometimes on eBay!

Next step: getting it on a nato strap, possibly a sweet camel suede or similar. and you're right; this is turning into a watch thread quick- but you can't not mention watches w/ credit cards!

went electronic crazy this past weekend...

- canon 5d mkiii
- canon 70-200 2.8is mkii
- apple imac 27" 3.4 ghz i7

all from b&h photo video and all on the platinum. pushed these purchases off for a long time. after using the equipment i realized it is close to 10k well spent.
