This is great!
One of one.
I have a box which would suit your needs - it holds watches, cufflinks, small change etc. I got it from Next but I’m sure there are other brands. I will have a google and get back to you.
A quick look on Amazon for male jewellery boxes came up with this. Mine is single story covered in faux black leather. It depends on what size etc you need.
TBH it sounds like you want a side table with some sort of nice internal dividers.
Maybe a modified kitchen dividers.
Been down a rabbit hole of vintage citizen divers recently and hope we’re going to see some reissues riding on the coat tails of the 62mas trend. Also note how elegantly they handled the lume at 3 issue
Something like IKEA Hemnes?
I picked a 2nd hand one up this week for £45 as a stop gap until we get fitted wardrobes installed.
It's pretty big but pretty solid.
Ok, so not a watch, but definitely horological!
It’s an old railway clock.... research is in its early stages, but it’s wonderful!
Here’s where it gets interesting though... if you look closely, the original face/dial has been reversed and repainted.... I’ll have to dismantle to find out more.....
Sorry to be cynical but..We have a very, very similar wall clock in our place in Ireland, it’s an Indian knock off and about 8 years old. I think the bizarre font for London may be an indicator.
They still do this. Even when the date is at 4. I was mucking about swapping straps and bracelets while on a call this arvo... Cheap citizen divers are great. As are the vintage ones.
Yeh love those
All packed and heading to Scotland to finally do the JOGLE. Have a great weekend everyone 👍
Early start, watch didn’t explode.
Lovely nato - can I ask where it is from?
It’s the older version of a tubular nato from Bark & Jack 👍 gets daily use for over a year now and looks brand new, been washed many times too. One of the best natos out there for me.
I was looking at Hanhart and Tutima the other day, but I don’t have leather gloves like yours. I think it looks great.
Thanks - great colour.
These are great.
Def Seiko par imo.

Love it, it’s definitely a league of its own.
I reckon above. The blue eco-drive I bought from alsal back in 2015 and it faithfully ticks away, staying within seconds per month. Handles surfing, cycling - everything. The auto has become a favourite. There's subtle case difference that means it wears really well and while the movement is rough, it does what it needs to, hacks, winds and keeps decent time.
The auto with its LHD is very practical, keeps the crown well out of the way.
G-Shock UK have unexpectedly had a restock of the GBX-100-2ER (teal MIP G-Lide), if anyone was interested:
The skeleton GA-2100 is also in stock:
This is undoubtedly old... the original railway face is on the reverse of this. It was common when railway companies got taken over or changed their name, to have a chap repaint it. I know about those knock offs, but I’ve had one of these pass through my hands before ao I knew it was right. I’ll update when it gets checked over by a chap who has a vast collection....
