I know we have a member's gallery, but I can't get enough of my Seamaster. So, I wanted to start a thread where we would post any and every picture you have of your seamaster. Don't be shy....post away!

Here are a few that I have posted around. Sorry for the repeats but I just want to get things moving. I will take more today:

Beautiful watch you have there Mike :thumbup1:

This model with the numbers ala orange is the PO I love best. It looks exceptional on a strap too, either an all black strap or the black one with the red stitching.


Be well now

Wow John you have really owned a lot of Semasters. Nevertheless, you have really stuck to the bond seamaster a classic.

It's great to see those pictures again John. They inspired many a purchase as you know, including these.






Hey I wonder if there have been any other members here who have owned both GMTs :blink:


And here's another acquired because you were so proud of yours :001_smile:




Never quite worked up a passion for the Bond though and I'm frantically looking for a picture of the Electric Blue - yes I bought that too :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:


Enjoy your Sunday

Houston thank you for the beautiful pictures. You know, I bought the PO and love it but my heart is still with the Bond seamaster. I am going to get one soon. After that it will be the speedy, of which, I have no clue which one to get since there are so many.

You're more than welcome pal. They pale next to John's or Terry's or..... :001_rolleyes:

Oh didn't know that. You after one of the new Co-Axials or sticking with Mr Original with the cal 1120 my friend?

I hear there are not to many 1120 around, but if there are any I would definitely want one. I love the Co-axial but I would be dvided between the two. I would bet the 1120 is less than the co-axial one...?

Yes Mike it's much less expensive but IMHO you have to factor in the fact that the Co-Axial's service interval is approximately 2x that of the c1120 so in the long term, you'll save. You'll certainly save by going for a young pre-loved or through one or two sources.

For me, the longer hands of the Co-Axial are more attractive. I was never too keen on the shorter skeleton hands of the 2531.80. At least not on paper anyway. On a wrist, they seem fine but that's also probably because I'm looking at the watch as a whole. The 2220.80 also has more prominent markers and the rather attractive Seamaster legend in red. I also like the new style case back. Very neat indeed :thumbup1:


Keep well my friend

I do have to admit that the co-axial version is very attractive. I did not know that the hands were longer. Either way, I am not ready yet but when I am I will start the deliberations soon. Thanks :thumbup1:
