A rather sentimental pair for me. The X700 was my dad's camera and it was the one he used to photograph me when I was just a baby. He passed it on to me about 5 years ago. My wife and I lost almost everything in a house fire. I lost about 50 cameras (some to the fire, some to looters before the insurance adjuster could come and take note of what was in the house). I thought this camera was gone, but when we were sifting through what was left in the house, I found it in the bottom of a plastic bin in my closet. My cameras have changed a lot over the years, but this camera will always remain with me. Film may die, but I will always have this camera. And so will my children. And their children.

The watch is a Charles Hubert that my wife gave me on our wedding day. Other than cameras and fountain pens, watches are one of my most favorite things. I don't own but a couple, and none of them are anything other than a daily watch, but this... this is special. It too will stay with me and hopefully my son (or son-in-law) will wear it one day.

Great thread you guys!

Had a faulty Eos 350D here that turned out to be OK (do those things ever give up?), so a little test drive was in order:

M4 & Pontiac Memomatic. Both equally well-worn, but running fine

Smile Camera and watch

All great pictures. Some very nice watches too. I would guess, being a watch enthusiast, that the Patek Phillepe is by far the most expensive, and a very fine watch indeed! That being said, I have about 26 watches, most in the $800 to $1500 range. I would love the above mentioned watch but certainly out of my manageable price range! However, I own some $25 to $150 watches that I love and wear often. My wife loves the Rolex I bought for her, but I don't get the whole Rolex thing. Each to their own; and most love what they have! I, for one, can hardly wait to buy my first Leica, though many don't get that. As long as we all love and use what we have; it's all good, right?

Well said. I have a simialr range and number of watches, the most valuable being my 1976 Tudor Monte Carlo (like Rolex Daytona) and the one worm most daily, other than a number of vintage Swatch watches, is a 1960s Enicar. It's the tactile thing again for me: wind a watch, load a fountain pen, load a Leica or other manual mechanical camera...all the same wonderful tactile experience. Now looking for a 1960s -1970s Heuer Autavia which would match up with my 1970 Leica M4. Good good luck getting your first Leica: do it!

Excellent thread.
I don't know a Casio from a Rolex, but I enjoy looking at the beautiful watches and cameras, and appreciate the education also.

More please.

Usually watch makers write their names on the dial...

I haven't worn any of my watches in years, I have a drawer full of them, but this thread is urging me to pull one or another out into the light.

Two of my Father's classics from the 1950s. The watch runs well and is my daily wearer, the camera isn't quite as reliable.

Nikon F2 w/ DE-1 prism + Nikkor 50/2 H·C and my new (old 1969) Seiko 6105-8000. A good match.

I think you would be surprised at how many good watch makers make a "sterile" dial. That is, a dial with no markings other than the hour markers. In fact, many watchmakers charge more for a "sterile" face than the regular, branded dial.

But, it is pretty easy to tell a Rolex from a Casio in any situation.
