I had a few hundred dollars remaining in my credit card with no immediate plans of spending…
And somehow I managed to land myself at the Men’s Watches section in Amazon. And after Intense research and bargain hunting… seven(yes you read it right, 7) watches and a zero balance was all that remained!!!
That was back in 1st week of August 2011. Ever since I have properly read up on horology, bid for antique movements in eBay and awaited the delivery of the following few~
Without further adieu let me present to you my Ramadan 2011 collection…
The first addition was the second Seiko 5 for my collection, a military watch… a mechanical movement! A venerable Seiko 5 (model no. SNK809) with black straps and a flieger dial.
I have been wanting a proper dress watch for sometime now. You know, the ones with leather straps and a clean and clear dial (timelessly elegant). I got a very good deal with Obaku and didn’t wait a second to pick up the following,
The other 5 had the following split,
a Ben Sherman R773 for my Dad,
a Skagen (can’t recall the model no.) for my Mom, that got stolen off the luggage 😦
and finally another Ben Sherman (this time a R7865) for my soon to be married cousin!
