Wonder if TLR enthusiasts will own twin-dial watches ?

Nice thread idea. Watches and cameras seem to go hand in hand.
I thought this would be a good excuse to get a bit creative, but bloody hell this type of photography is hard. The light, the reflections, the spikey Snake Bush you need to stick your elbow in to get the shot..hats off to all you who do this for a living.

The one, taken with the other:

It's my watch, my alarm clock, my developing timer, my flashlight, and - if no other option is available - my camera.

Did two Quick & Dirty's this morning:

Minox 35 and Lip Mach 2000. Both European, both 70's futuristic designs, both black with colorful accents.



And the opposite end of the spectrum: Plastic Fantastic with a vomiting-Skittles aesthetic.

Both 1930's vintage; both working 'as designed'; neither CLA'ed!

Agree with Cron - all great watches and beautifully presented.

(But I have to say that the Patek is bound to be just as beautiful inside as it is outside).

Vince, what sort of accuracy do you get over a week? My own mechanical watch used to be a minute slow over four months but after using a Macbook Air for two hours (where the speakers are under the keys I believe) it became fast by one minute a week. I took it to an independent but highly regarded watchmaker who tried to demagnetise it but the watch ended up fast by two minutes a week! I'll have to save up to send it to the watch company who made it. (Mind you, it's forty years old so perhaps the materials were less anti-magnetic then).

It's very accurate, but I don't wear it every day, so I haven't really tested it over a week or two week long period. I usually wear a different watch every day -- everything from a WWI Elgin, to a Speedmaster, some Accutrons, and the Patek. The nice thing about the Patek is that it's not too large for my skinny wrists!

That Milgauss is a beauty. So much cooler than the modern version.
